Feasibility of resection and plication “RAP” technique for management of medically refractory GERD in patients with altered gastric anatomy
Conclusions Patients with refractory GERD after gastric surgery have limited therapeutic options. We have demonstrated that the RAP procedure is feasible, safe, and clinically effective at short-term follow-up. It provides a potential alternative to revisional surgery in patients with altered gastric anatomy.

CONCLUSIONS: Standardizing the gastric sleeve technique in the bariatric surgery services, taking into account the technical factors associated with post-operative GERD de novo, decreases its appearance as evaluated by the GerdQ scale.PMID:34665173 | DOI:10.24875/CIRU.20000642
The objective was to assess GERD management's knowledge and practice and its association with the family and internal medicine residents.METHODS: A cross-sectional study between January 2019 and September 2020 among the family and internal medicine residents in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Residents answered a self-administrated questionnaire about knowledge and practices of GERD management.RESULTS: A total of 596 residents were included in the current study. The average age was 26.8 ± 2.1 years, and 54.5% of the residents were males. The median knowledge score was 62.5%. The majority (89.8%) of the residents were using ac...
J Neurogastroenterol Motil. 2021 Oct 30;27(4):453-481. doi: 10.5056/jnm21077.ABSTRACTGastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which gastric contents regurgitate into the esophagus or beyond, resulting in either troublesome symptoms or complications. GERD is heterogeneous in terms of varied manifestations, test findings, and treatment responsiveness. GERD diagnosis can be established with symptomatology, pathology, or physiology. Recently the Lyon consensus defined the "proven GERD" with concrete evidence for reflux, including advanced grade erosive esophagitis (Los Angeles classification grades C ...
The role of mastication on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is unknown.
This study aimed to assess whether and to what extent a negative upper endoscopy in patients with GERD is associated with a decreased incidence and mortality in upper gastrointestinal cancer (esophageal, gastric, or duodenal cancer).
Therapeutic gastrointestinal endoscopy is rapidly evolving, and this evolution is quite apparent for esophageal diseases. Minimally invasive endoluminal therapy now allows outpatient treatment of many esophageal diseases that were traditionally managed surgically. In this review article, we explore the most exciting new developments. We discuss the use of peroral endoscopic myotomy for treatment of achalasia and other related diseases, as well as the modifications that have allowed its use in treatment of Zenker diverticulum. We cover endoscopic treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease and Barrett ’s esophagus. F...
CONCLUSIONS: While the majority of ulcers were due to gastroesophageal reflux disease, 22 different etiologies were identified. Many were due to medication or iatrogenic causes. Repeat endoscopy did not appear to be helpful. While the incidence was low, they were frequently associated with significant morbidity.PMID:34599565 | DOI:10.51821/84.3.004
