Predictors and timing for the development of symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux disease after successful Helicobactor pylori eradication therapy

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

AbstractChronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is an underdiagnosed condition. Patients typically present with the symptoms of right heart failure. Diagnosis is usually done by radionuclide ventilation/perfusion (VQ) scan, high-quality multidetector computed tomography (CT) or pulmonary angiography at expert centers. Pulmonary endarterectomy remains the corner stone in management of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest is commonly used for the operation at most centers. In-hospital mortality ranges from 1.7 to 14.2%. Pulmonary hemorrhage, reperfusion lung injury, and rig...

Abstract Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) has been further decreased over the last decades along with decreasing prevalence of Helicobacter pylori‐associated PUD. A delayed H. pylori eradication has been associated with an increased risk of rehospitalization for complicated recurrent peptic ulcer and reemphasized the importance of eradication especially in patients with peptic ulcer bleeding (PUB). PUB associated with NSAID/aspirin intake and H. pylori revealed an additive interaction in gastric pathophysiology which favors the “test‐and‐treat” strategy for H. pylori in patients with specific ris...
