AbstractBackground and aimThe relationship between gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and sleep disturbance has recently been pointed out and is garnering substantial attention. Although there are reports that point out the effectiveness of medical treatment for sleep disturbance associated with GERD, examinations of the pathological condition, including reflux during sleep, are inadequate. In the present study, we evaluated the recumbent reflux in patients with GERD and sleep disturbance using multichannel intraluminal impedance pH (MII-pH), and attempted to suppress recumbent reflux by surgical treatment to examine t...

By ANISH KOKA, MD Mr. Smith has a problem.  He can’t see.  Even this cardiologist knows why.  The not so subtle evidence lies in the cloudy lens in front of his pupils.  He is afflicted with cataracts that obstruct his vision to the point he can’t really do his job refurbishing antique furniture safely.  His other problem is that he hates doctors. He hasn’t had reason to see one for more than a decade.  He’s 68, takes no medications, smokes a pack of cigarettes a day, and is a master of one word answers. He’s in my office because he needs a medical eval...

Barakat A new series of nitrogen and sulfur heterocyclic systems were efficiently synthesized by linking the following four rings: indole; 1,2,4-triazole; pyridazine; and quinoxaline hybrids. The strength of the acid that catalyzes the condensation of 4-amino-5-(1H-indol-2-yl)-2,4-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thione 1 with aromatic aldehydes controlled the final product. Reflux in glacial acetic acid yielded Schiff bases 2–6, whereas concentrated HCl in ethanol resulted in a cyclization product at C-3 of the indole ring to create indolo-triazolo-pyridazinethiones 7–16. This fascinating cyclization a...

My uncle died last year. As physicians, we are all too familiar with death. Even if we are practicing primary care, we are touched by death and the line between life and death. That patient who had what statistically should ’ve been acid reflux, but who you found to have stomach cancer. That breastfeeding mom who […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

AbstractPurpose of reviewBariatric surgery and endoluminal bariatric therapies (EBTs) form an increasingly utilized therapeutic approach to treat obese patients but may worsen gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). In this updated article, we review the evidence on the effects of bariatric procedures on GERD.FindingsRecent evidence implicates sleeve gastrectomy with the highest rates of de novo GERD and Barrett ’s esophagus (BE), whereas malabsorptive-restrictive procedures such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) were shown to have significantly lower reported rates. The int...

Conclusion Anterior and posterior myotomy in POEM seem comparable to each other in terms of clinical success, GERD, and adverse events. The total procedure time with posterior myotomy seems to be shorter than with anterior myotomy.

Authors: Qiu Y, Hu JL, Zhao CC, Zhang JQ, Wu F, Ma BL, Feng Y, Ruan KF Abstract Background: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERDs) is a common chronic digestive system disease, in which the symptoms of reflux esophagitis (RE) seriously affect the quality of life. Aims: We aimed to study the therapeutic effect of Zhujie Hewei granules (ZHG) on reflux esophagitis in model rats. Materials and Methods: A rat model of RE was established with the steps of half pylorus ligation, cardiotomy, and hydrochloric acid perfusion. The rats in treatment groups were orally administered with 1.30, 2.60, or 5.20 g/kg ...

Most people know about the damaging effects that binge drinking can bring to someone’s life. Loss of enjoyment of life, losing family relationships, financial and career struggles, homelessness, and legal consequences are just the tip of the iceberg. However, it can be more difficult to realize the long-term effect of binge drinking on the body, because you cannot always see it. Frequent binge drinking poses many dangerous health risks, and many of them can lead to death. Facts on Long-Term Effect of Binge Drinking on the Body For men, binge drinking is defined as consuming five or more drinks within about two hour...

AbstractPurpose of reviewHigh resolution esophageal manometry (HRM) has expanded understanding of esophageal motor function. The Chicago Classification scheme has allowed systematic categorization of the myriad of manometric parameters identified during HRM. Multichannel intraluminal impedance pH has enhanced ambulatory reflux monitoring through complete assessment of esophageal content transit. However, the clinical implications of identified minor esophageal functional disorders remain unclear.Recent findingsEsophagogastric junction outlet obstruction is defined by esophagogastric junction obstruction with preserved peri...
