AbstractBackgroundLaparoscopic Heller myotomy fails in approximately 3.5% to 15% of patients. Evidence of successful laparoscopic reoperation is limited to a few studies.MethodsThis case –control study was conducted in patients who underwent laparoscopic Heller myotomy reoperation (LHM-R) from 2008 to 2016. The operative outcomes, preoperative and last follow-up manometric parameters, and symptom questionnaire results, including the Eckardt, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease-Health Related Quality of Life (GERD-HRQL) and eating assessment tool (EAT-10) scores, were obtained. The data were compared with those of patient...

Objective: The role of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) causing distress in infants is controversial but acid inhibitors are often empirically prescribed. We evaluated the relation between distress assessed by the Face, Legs, Activity, Cry, Consolability (FLACC) scale and GER in infants. Methods: We analyzed multiple intraluminal impedance-pH (MII-pH) monitoring tracings of infants with persistent unexplained fussiness or distress. Symptoms occurring during investigation were scored by parents using the FLACC scale and were grouped as “distress” episodes. Results: We recruited 62 children (ages 15 days to ...

ConclusionAlthough we found an association between auxological parameters and both leptin and ghrelin levels, this association did not imply an effect on the upper GI motility. Therefore, our hypothesis that alterations of these hormones in children with obesity could affect gastric emptying, triggering GERD, was not supported by our data.

ConclusionPatients with ineffective esophageal motility derive significant benefits in perioperative and QOL outcomes after LARS. Nevertheless, as anticipated, their baseline dysmotility may reduce the degree of improvement in dysphagia rates post-surgery compared to patients with normal motility. Furthermore, the presence of preoperative IEM should not be a contraindication for complete fundoplication. Key to optimal outcomes after LARS is careful patient selection based on objective perioperative data, including manometry evaluation, with the purpose of tailoring surgery  to provide effective reflux control and impr...
