Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies and Diagnostic Outcomes in Otherwise Healthy Infants With Dysphagia

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

Discussion: Early-life GERD was associated with subsequent childhood asthma. Similar risks among children with treated and untreated GERD suggest that acid-suppressive medications are unlikely to play a major role in the development asthma.

Chest. 2021 Sep;160(3):e285-e288. doi: 10.1016/j.chest.2021.04.051.ABSTRACTA 58-year-old woman was referred to our department with a cough of 1 year duration; her condition was unresponsive to the administration of inhaled steroid and beta-2 agonists. She denied the presence of dyspnea, chest pain, or other extrapulmonary symptoms. She was a never-smoker with a negative medical history and no occupational or domestic exposures. There was no history of cancer, gastroesophageal reflux disease, asthma, allergic rhinitis, or other allergies.PMID:34488969 | DOI:10.1016/j.chest.2021.04.051

This study was conducted to collect LLMs by the sputum induction technique and observe the relationship among the amount of LLMs, cough severity, parameters of 24-hour esophageal pH-monitoring and therapeutic response. The 24-hour esophageal pH-monitoring and sputum induction were performed on 57 patients with suspected GERD associated with CC. Thirty-four patients were followed up after empirical anti-reflux trials of 8 weeks to record the therapeutic response. Lipid-laden macrophage index (LLMI), a semiquantitative counting of LLMs, showed no significant correlation with the values of 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring at ...
