This study aimed to study the endoscopic yield, appropriateness, and complications of pediatric endoscopy performed by adult gastroenterologists in an adult endoscopic suite. Methods: This a retrospective study in which records of all the patients less than 18 years of age who underwent endoscopy in the last 5 years were studied. The indications of endoscopy in children were categorized as appropriate or inappropriate per the latest guidelines by American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. Positive endoscopic yield was defined as t...

CONCLUSIONS: In patients with reflux-related symptoms, with or without esophagitis, the water load test is frequently abnormal, suggesting an altered gastric function. Nissen fundoplication is associated with a relatively higher incidence of bloating, epigastric pain and fullness. These preliminary data could explain the incomplete resolution of symptoms after surgery in some patients, and suggest the use of additional studies to explore the gastric function in pre-surgical evaluation.

Authors: Mohammadifard M, Saremi Z, Rastgoo M, Akbari E Abstract There is evidence that infection by H. pylori can have a critical proportion in the development of hepatocyte injury and both noncancerous and malignant liver conditions including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This is attributed to several mechanisms, the most important one being the toxic products of the bacterium H. pylori and oxidative injury for hepatocytes which promotes hepatic injury. The present research was aimed at determining the association between H. pylori infection and the prevalence of NAFLD in Birjand, Iran. Two groups we...

Abstract Dyspepsia is a common problem, and when dyspeptic symptoms develop within a short period of time, organic diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, peptic ulcer diseases, pancreatoduodenal diseases, and gastrointestinal cancers should be suspected. Furthermore, functional dyspepsia (FD) should be considered if chronic or recurrent symptoms persist after eliminating underlying disease. FD is classified as epigastric pain syndrome (EPS) or postprandial distress syndrome (PDS), but these two conditions may overlap. Patients with the EPS subtype can be treated with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), where...

Conclusions: A duodenal biopsy is more likely to be performed in younger patients, females, and for key indications such as weight loss, diarrhea, and anemia. Providers varied widely in the performance of duodenal biopsy. Further study is warranted to better understand the decision to perform duodenal biopsy and to determine the optimal scenarios for its performance.

Authors: Zatarain Valles A, Serrano Falcón B, Álvarez Sánchez Á, Rey Díaz-Rubio E Abstract BACKGROUND: although a number of factors have been associated with a deterioration in quality of life in gastroesophageal reflux disease, it is not known which has an independent influence. OBJECTIVE: to evaluate factors independently associated with the impact of gastroesophageal reflux disease on health-related quality of life. METHODS: a post-hoc analysis of a prospective cohort of patients diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease was performed. The patients completed valida...

CONCLUSIONS: There is evidence that PPIs are effective for the treatment of FD, independent of the dose and duration of treatment compared with placebo. PPIs may be slightly more effective than prokinetics for the treatment of FD; however, the evidence is scarce. The trials evaluating PPIs versus prokinetics are difficult to interpret as they are at risk of bias. Although the effect of these drugs seems to be small, the drugs are well tolerated.
