Conclusion: The methodological and reporting quality of SRs/MAs about Chinese medical treatment for GERD is generally poor. The main problems included incomplete search strategies, risk of bias in individual studies, the lack of protocol registration and excluded study list, and incorrect study selection methods.

Authors: Luo Z, Hu X, Chen C, Zhu L, Zhang W, Shen Y, He J Abstract Objective: To observe the influence of the catgut-embedding method in Du Meridian acupoint on the mental and psychological state of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and analyze its possible mechanism. Methods: According to the random number table, 60 patients with GERD were randomly divided into groups of acupoint catgut embedding and Western medicine, 30 cases in each group. The acupoint group was given catgut embedment in the positive reaction points along the Du Meridian, while the Western medicine group received lansopra...

We report the case of a 72-year-old man with a history of distal gastrectomy and Billroth I anastomosis due to early gastric cancer. GERD due to bile reflux occurred after surgery and was refractory to medical therapy. The patient underwent Roux-en-Y conversion from Billroth I gastroduodenostomy and hiatal hernia repair with only cruroplasty. Fundoplication was not performed. His symptoms improved significantly after the surgery. Therefore, laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair and Roux-en-Y conversion can be an effective surgical procedure to treat medically refractory DGER after Billroth I gastrectomy. PMID: 33024589 [PubMed]

AbstractBackgroundUntreated gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can lead to Barrett ’s esophagus and an increased risk for esophageal adenocarcinoma. Magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) is a safe and effective modality for the treatment of GERD. Preliminary research on short-term outcomes after MSA demonstrated significant regression of Barrett’s. Further investigation is required to evaluate the long-term effect of this treatment.MethodsA retrospective review of patients was conducted with biopsy-proven Barrett ’s esophagus who underwent MSA between 2007 and 2019. As a part ...

CONCLUSION: A 37-year-old man developed infusion-related angioedema with use of infliximab-abda. Discontinuation of the biosimilar product along with supportive care brought about resolution of angioedema. There are no prior published reports of infusion-related angioedema reactions secondary to infliximab-abda use. PMID: 33031494 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, the effect of MA on pyelonephritis was studied in C3H mouse strains prone to VUR. MA induced by ammonium chloride suppl ementation in food specifically impaired clearance of urinary tract infection with uropathogenicEscherichia. coli (UPEC ‐UTI) in innate immune competent C3H strains (HeOuJ, HeN), whereas kidney UPEC burden in Tlr‐4‐deficient HeJ mice was unaffected. Antibody‐mediated depletion of myeloid cells (monocytes, neutrophil) markedly increased UPEC burden in the bladder and kidney confirming the pivotal role of neutr ophils and tissue‐resident macrophages in clearance of UPEC‐UTI. MA co...

AbstractIntroductionMagnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) is a safe and effective treatment for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). MSA was initially indicated for patients with GERD and concomitant hiatal hernias    2 cm) on videoesophagram or endoscopy.ResultsSeventy-nine patients (53% female) with a median age of 65.56 (58.42 –69.80) years were included. Median follow up was 2.98 (interquartile range 1.90–3.32) years. Median DeMeester scores decreased from 42.45 (29.12–60.73) to 9.10 (3.05–24.30) (p
