Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: It is anticipated that surgical treatment for gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) in the elderly will increase. This time, using propensity score matching, we examined the results of laparoscopic fundoplication (LF) for GERD-related diseases in the elderly.METHODS: Of 302 cases which underwent initial LF for GERD-related diseases during the period from June 2008 to February 2019, we classified them into elderly (65 years of age or older) and non-elderly groups (64 years of age or younger). 57 cases each w...

Oncol Rep. 2021 Nov;46(5):244. doi: 10.3892/or.2021.8195. Epub 2021 Sep 24.ABSTRACTLaryngopharyngeal reflux, a variant of gastroesophageal reflux disease, has been considered a risk factor in the development of hypopharyngeal cancer. Bile acids are frequently present in the gastroesophageal refluxate and their effect has been associated with inflammatory and neoplastic changes in the upper aerodigestive tract. Recent in vitro and in vivo studies have provided direct evidence of the role of acidic bile refluxate in hypopharyngeal carcinogenesis and documented the crucial role of NF‑κB as a key mediator of early onco...

When Joe Silverman developed Crohn’s disease at age 21, the symptoms started out mild. While the sight of blood in his stools initially freaked him out, what really bothered him was the frequent abdominal pain and bloating that occurred as his condition progressed to moderate and then severe. Dietary changes didn’t make a difference, so he began taking prescription oral anti-inflammatory drugs that are often used to treat certain bowel diseases, which alleviated but didn’t eliminate his discomfort. He started using prescription steroid suppositories to cope with flare-ups of the inflammatory bowel disease...

CONCLUSIONS: Otherwise healthy infants may show signs of dysphagia and not develop later illness. Parents can thus be counseled on the implications of dysphagia in a previously healthy infant. Our findings provide comparative statistics for future research in pediatric dysphagia.PMID:34553623 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211047786

AbstractDespite ongoing evolution in technique and a low mortality rate, clinicians may care for patients who suffer late complications (> 90 days of surgery) after bariatric surgery. Endoscopic techniques are used to identify and manage many of the late complications of the two most commonly performed bariatric surgeries: sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Stenosis at the incisura angularis and gastroesophageal reflux disease may occur in patients who have undergone a sleeve gastrectomy. Patients who underwent a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass can suffer marginal ulceration, gastrojejunal anastomotic stricture, ...

CONCLUSIONS: The rate of development of symptomatic GERD after successful H. pylori eradication is low over long-term follow-up and is easily controlled by vonoprazan therapy. However, patients with smoking habits, functional dyspepsia, hiatal hernia, or severe gastric atrophy should be followed carefully after eradication.PMID:34547219 | DOI:10.1080/00365521.2021.1975310
