ConclusionIn cases that are initially AB negative and CDX-2 positive, CDX-2 was demonstrated to have a potential prognostic utility for early detection of progression to BE. CDX-2 expression is significantly predictive for risk of goblet cell IM development 40 to 45  months after initial biopsy.

ConclusionThe consumption of high-fat, low-protein, high-sugar, acid foods, and beverages is associated with a higher number of proximal reflux episodes at the MII-pH, according to the global refluxogenic score of LPR patients.

Authors: Wang YJ, Lang XQ, Wu D, He YQ, Lan CH, Xiao X, Wang B, Zou DW, Wu JM, Zhao YB, Dettmar PW, Chen DF, Yang M Abstract Background/Aims: To determine the value of salivary pepsin in discriminating sub-types of gastroesophageal refluxdisease (GERD) and GERD-related disorders. Methods: Overall, 322 patients with different sub-types of GERD and 45 healthy controls (HC) werestudied. All patients took Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Questionnaire (GerdQ) andunderwent endoscopy and 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring and manometry. Salivary pepsinconcentration (SPC) was detected by using colloidal gold double-antib...

This study aims to evaluate the feasibility of this method for the diagnostic prediction of GERD. Methods A retrospective analysis of patients with GERD symptoms who underwent gastroscopy and esophageal pH-impedance monitoring was conducted. The novel assessment evaluated the following in retroflex view: 1) Cardiac Opening (CO): diameter of the opening of the cardia, 2) Sliding Hernia (SH): length from the diaphragmatic crus to the squamocolumnar junction, 3) Scope Holding Time% (SHT%): the percentage of time that the Scope Holding Sign (SHS) was observed out of 30 seconds. The SHS is defined as the lower esophagus...

ConclusionPOEM is a safe, effective, and durable treatment for achalasia in children. However, GER is a potential concern and should be evaluated in prospective studies before adopting POEM for the management of achalasia in children.

AbstractIntroductionBariatric surgery is increasingly performed. Since there are numerous surgical techniques, the effects of these on the esophageal function are still poorly understood. We aimed at assessing the effect of different techniques on esophagogastric junction (EGJ), esophageal peristalsis and reflux exposure using high-resolution manometry (HRM), and impedance-pH monitoring (MII-pH).MethodsAll obese patients underwent symptomatic questionnaires, endoscopy, HRM, and MII-pH before and 1  year after surgery. Esophageal function and EGJ were classified according to Chicago Classification V. 3.0. Intragastric ...

Abstract Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is characterized by acid and bile reflux in the distal oesophagus, and this may cause the development of reflux esophagitis and Barrett's oesophagus (BE). The natural histological course of untreated BE is non-dysplastic or benign BE (ND) than low-grade (LGD), and high-grade dysplastic (HGD) BE, with the expected increase in malignancy transfer to oesophagal adenocarcinoma (EAC). The gold standard for BE diagnostics involves high-resolution white-light endoscopy, followed by uniform endoscopy findings description (Prague classification) with biopsy performance accord...

Authors: Sun YM, Gao Y, Gao F Abstract Background/Aims: Recently, esophageal mean nocturnal baseline impedance (MNBI) and post-reflux swallow-induced peristaltic wave (PSPW) index have been proposed, which can increase the diagnostic role of multichannel intraluminal impedance and pH recording (MII/pH) for differentiating patients with heartburn. Therefore, our aim is to investigate the role of esophageal proximal MNBI, distal MNBI, and PSPW index in differentiating Chinese patients with heartburn. Methods: Patients with heartburn from the Beijing Anzhen Hospital, who underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy ...
