"Why Do I Still Have Heartburn?"

You are at your ideal weight, have been following a low-acid diet, are avoiding the foods that can cause heartburn, and are taking antacids -- but you still have heartburn. Why? Despite doing everything right, there are a few reasons why you may still be suffering from heartburn. Here are some of those reasons you may still have heartburn.

In this study, we observed the effect of HWJND on esophageal morphology in a rat model of ovalbumin (OVA)-induced visceral hypersensitivity followed by acid exposure. Esophageal morphology was assessed by measuring the extent of dilated intercellular spaces (DIS), desmosome disruption, and mitochondrial fragmentation. HWJND in low, moderate, and high doses relieved DIS and desmosome disruption in esophageal epithelium compared with model group (P<0.05 for all doses). In addition, HWJND in high dose protected mitochondria from fragmentation (P<0.05). Other findings suggest that DIS and mitochondrial fragmentation are ...

AbstractPurposeWe compared the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery (LS) with those of open surgery (OS) for unilateral and bilateral pediatric inguinal hernia.MethodsUsing a nationwide claim-based database in Japan, we analyzed data from children younger than 15  years old, who underwent inguinal hernia repair between January 2005 and December 2017. Patient characteristics, incidence of reoperation, postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and duration of anesthesia were compared between LS and OS for unilateral and bilateral hernia.ResultsAmong 5554 patients, 2057 underwent LS (unilateral 1095, bilateral 96...

ConclusionThe introduction of a liquid material which solidifies after injection in a short time (hydrogel) using a needle is feasible. The combined CT-scan and US image guidance allows for the percutaneous placement of the needle in the required location. The introduced hydrogel remains in this space, corresponding to the inguinal region, without moving. The placed hydrogel compresses the posterior wall composed of the transversalis fascia, supporting the potential use of hydrogel for hernia defects.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is now one of the most common diagnoses made in a gastroenterology practice. From a conventional pathophysiological perspective GERD is conceptualized as incompetence of the antireflux barrier at the esophagogastric junction; the more severe that incompetence, the worse the disease. However, it is increasingly clear that many presentations of GERD represent distinct phenotypes with unique predisposing cofactors and pathophysiology outside of this paradigm. Three major consensus initiatives have grappled with this dilemma (the Montreal Consensus, The Rome Foundation, and the Lyon Conse...

AbstractPurposeTo provide an overview of the available literature on prevention of incisional hernias after stoma reversal, with the use of prophylactic meshes.MethodsA literature search of Pubmed, MEDLINE and EMBASE was performed. Search terms for stoma, enterostomy, mesh, prophylaxis and hernia were used. Search was updated to December 31th 2018. No time limitations were used, while English, Geman, Dutch and French were used as language restrictions. The primary outcome was the incidence of incisional hernia formation after stoma reversal. Secondary outcomes were mesh-related complications. Data on study design, sample s...

Anatomically, one of the primary defense mechanisms to prevent gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is an intact gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) that is composed of an overlapping lower esophageal sphincter and diaphragmatic crus (Figure  1). This barrier, if disrupted, can lead to increased GER and symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) including heartburn, chest pain, regurgitation, and extraesophageal symptoms of cough or throat soreness. Prolonged or frequent GER can lead to complications including erosive esophagit is, Barrett’s esophagus, or stricture formation.
