Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is considered physiologic and is a normal process; whereas, when aerodigestive consequences are associated, it is often interpreted as GER disease (GERD). However, the distinction between them remains a challenge in infants in the NICU. Reflux-type of symptoms are heterogeneous, and often managed with changes in diet, feeding methods, and acid-suppressive therapy; all these empiric therapies lack objectivity; hence, practice variation is universal. We clarify the current controversies, explain the potential role of GERD in causing symptoms and complications, and highlight current advances. The...

AbstractThe prevalence of children with neurological impairment (NI) presenting feeding difficulties and gastrointestinal symptoms is rising. The most recent guidelines recommend early nutritional assessment and intervention in order to prevent undernutrition and growth failure, along with the proper diagnosis and treatment of some frequent gastrointestinal symptoms, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and constipation, which can further worsen the feeding process and nutritional status. Nonetheless, the nutritional issues and growth deficits of children with NI are often considered to be of low priority or unde...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hypertension, one of the most common cardiovascular diseases that can cause coronary disease, stroke, myocardial infarction and sudden death, it is the major contributor to cardiac failure as well as renal insufficiency. OBJECTIVES: As there are many cardio-active pyridazinone-base derivatives in clinical use, therefore, it we aimed to synthesize a new series of pyridazin-3-ones and evaluate their vasorelaxant activity. METHODS: The new series of synthesized compounds were carried out first by synthesis of 6-flouroarylpyridazinones by cyclization of 3-(4-flourobenzoyl) propionic acid...

Conclusions: The success of robotic fundoplication depends on adhering to a few important technical principles. In our experience, the robotic surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease with large paraesophageal hernias may afford the surgeon increased dexterity and is feasible with comparable outcomes compared with traditional laparoscopic approaches.

AbstractIntroductionThe purpose of this study is to evaluate the utility of using a functional lumen imaging probe (EndoFLIP ™) intra-operatively during hiatal hernia repair and fundoplication. Additionally, we hypothesize that these measurements correlate with long-term outcomes.MethodsA prospectively maintained quality database was queried. Between 2013 and 2018, 175 patients underwent laparoscopic fundoplication, the majority of which also had a hiatal hernia repair. The EndoFLIP ™ was used to measure minimum diameter (Dmin), balloon pressure, and distensibility index (DI) at different timepoints throughout ...
