Conclusions: Normal esophageal wave patterns are present in the investigated patients with iCDH. EGJ end-expiratory pressure seems lower in patients with iCDH without patch suggesting a decreased EGJ barrier function hence increased vulnerability to gastroesophageal reflux. Patch repair appears to increase end-expiratory pressure at the EGJ above that of controls suggesting that patch surgery tightens the EGJ, thereby increasing flow resistance. This is in line with the increased Pressure Flow Index. In infants with a patch, the inspiration-expiration pressure difference is lower, reflecting diminished activity of the crural diaphragm.

ConclusionsCompared to non ‐users, participants using either PPIs or H2RAs had increased risk of MMD, pMMD, and injurious falls. It is not known if these effects are related to the individual pharmacology of each medication, reduced acid secretion, or the underlying disease state. Further study is required to determine caus ality.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Authors: Sevencan NO, Cesur O, Cakar M, Dogan E, Ozkan AE, Benli AR Abstract The aim of this study was to calculate the corrected rate of reflux in children with gastroesophageal reflux (GER)-like complaints by 24-hour pH monitoring and esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), and to determine the utility of mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width (RDW) as diagnostic biomarkers of GER disease (GERD) in children. The subjects in this prospective study were 109 children, 6 to 18 years old. Of them, 74 subjects were with GER symptoms and 35 healthy controls. The subjects were divided into three groups: tho...

AbstractPurposeChronic gastritis is observed in almost half world population. Traditional medications against chronic gastritis might produce adverse effects, so alternative nutritional strategies are needed to prevent the aggravation of gastric mucosal damage. The aim of this study is to evaluate the protective effect of the combination of wheat peptides and fucoidan (WPF) on adults diagnosed with chronic superficial gastritis in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.MethodsParticipants were randomized to receive WPF (N  =  53) or placebo (N  =  53) once daily for 45&nbs...

We report using laser endoscopy to divide the inter-diverticular septum followed by transmucosal cricopharyngeus myotomy. Presentation of a rare, bilobed diverticulum emphasizes the importance of the midline prevertebral raphe in anchoring the pharyngeal constrictor muscl es with respect to the CPM. This lends support to the hypothesis that the etiopathogenesis of ZD is multifactorial while guiding us to a unified understanding of ZD.

AbstractLaparoscopic Heller myotomy and Dor fundoplication is considered a safe and effective treatment for achalasia. Robotic-assisted Heller –Dor procedure (RAHD) has emerged as an alternative approach due to improved visualization and fine motor control. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate clinical, and functional results of RAHD. We evaluated a group of 66 patients with achalasia that underwent robotic-assisted Heller– Dor operation. Before treatment all patients underwent a diagnostic work-up such as upper endoscopy, esophageal barium swallow and high resolution manometry. The presence of pos...

Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is the preferred operative treatment for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. The most recent published results only refer to clinical evaluations and few discuss objective measurements. Our purpose was to determine the late results of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication, performing clinical, endoscopic, histologic, and functional studies.

ConclusionCervical lymph node dissection increases acid reflux and DGER and can lead to an increase in the incidence of reflux esophagitis in patients undergoing intrathoracic esophagogastrostomy.
