ConclusionsWe demonstrated the feasibility and safety of LECS for SMTs even on the EGJ. Fundoplication after LECS may be an approach for the prevention of postoperative reflux esophagitis. Future research is warranted to validate the efficacy of the addition of fundoplication.

AbstractThis video shows the case of a 64-year-old morbidly obese woman, with a non-adjustable gastric band, who consulted for weight regain and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms and was converted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). The operative technique included extensive lysis of adhesions, complete band dissection, partial gastrectomy of the fundus and body due to band erosion and conversion to RYGB.

CONCLUSION: There is mixed evidence with a high degree of bias and heterogeneity between studies for the modalities presented in the paper. Based on this review, an anti-reflux diet is recommended for all patients and there is some low-quality evidence to support alkaline water. For patients with predominant vocal symptoms there is evidence that supports voice therapy. There is insufficient evidence to recommend prokinetics at this time. For patients with predominant globus symptoms, alginate, RKT, and relaxation strategies may be used in conjunction with acid suppressing medications for symptom relief. PMID: 32449369...

Objective: The aim of the study was to compare the rates of nutrients consumption in children and adolescents with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) compared to the control group without the disease. Methods: Based on symptom evaluation and esophageal pH-impedance recordings patients were allocated on to GERD and control groups. All patients underwent esophagogastroscopy. Levels of nutrients consumption were assessed with the use of food frequency questionnaire in the regard to the presence of the disease, esophagitis, and z score body mass index (BMI). Results: Data of 219 children and adolescents were availa...
