GERD a Risk Factor for Temporomandibular Joint Disorders GERD a Risk Factor for Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is associated with a nearly three-fold increased risk of temporomandibular disorders (TMD), according to a new case-control study.Reuters Health Information
This study examines the interaction of GERD and EsD on spirometry in LTRs.
Gastroparesis (GP) is prevalent after lung transplant (Ltx) (50-68%). GP has been associated with symptoms and delayed absorption of medications. Of particular concern after Ltx, GP can predispose to gastroesophageal reflux disease considered the main culprit for chronic allograft dysfunction. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment is recommended in Ltx patients. Pharmacologic intervention for GP is not efficacious to improve gastric emptying and can induce potential serious side effects. Transcutaneous electric stimulation (TES) has been proposed to improve motility in various gastrointestinal motility disorders
The pulmonary microbiome modulates the immune milieu in the lung allograft and is in turn influenced by external factors such as microaspiration of oropharyngeal contents. A potential driver of microaspiration is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which has been associated with poor outcomes after lung transplantation. We aimed to compare the pulmonary microbiome in lung transplant recipients with and without GERD, and correlate microbial composition with concurrent lung inflammation.
Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is a prevalent condition in both general otolaryngology and laryngology. Scientists are faced with both the diagnostic and therapeutic controversies and the many “gray” areas related to LPR. Among those shades of gray are the poorly understood impact of diet and lifestyle, the lack of recognition/understanding of the variability in pH of the refluxate (acid, nonacid, and mixed and the impact this has on treatment options), and the nonspecific presenting signs and symptoms of LPR that may be called “diagnostic” but should realistically be called no more than “susp...

MONDAY, Aug. 19, 2019 -- Symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is associated with chronic temporomandibular disorder (TMD), and the correlation is partially mediated by somatization, anxiety, and undermined sleep, according to a study...
Abstract BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are a family of pain-related disorders associated with impaired function in the jaw, temporomandibular joint and muscles of mastication. Our objectives were to evaluate the association between chronic TMD and gastresophageal reflux disease (GERD) and to determine whether mental disorders or undermined sleep mediates this association. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study involving 1522 consecutive adult patients with chronic TMD and 1522 matched controls from 2 hospitals in China. All participants were aged between 18 and 70 years and were recruited...
This report describes a rare case of repeated, voluntary, TMJ in a 73-year-old woman with dysphagia and dysarthria. The cause of dislocation was suspected to be voluntary excessive mouth opening associated with gastroesophageal reflux-related vomiting and the desire to eject oral deposits resulting from hypoglossal and facial nerve paralyses. After an oral hygiene intervention, the frequency of TMJ dislocation decreased and finally disappeared. Thorough oral hygiene seemed to contribute to protection against TMJ dislocation.
