Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is an extraesophageal variant of gastroesophageal reflux disease that is associated with chronic cough, hoarseness, dysphonia, recurrent throat clearing, and globus pharyngeus. Due to nonspecific symptoms, laryngoscopy is often performed to rule out malignancy, and the diagnosis of LPR is considered with any signs of laryngeal inflammation. However, laryngoscopic findings have high interobserver variability, and, thus, most patients are tried on an empiric course of acid-suppressive therapy to see whether symptoms resolve...

The treatment of perianal fistulas remains a clinical challenge despite the significant advances that have been made in the management of luminal inflammatory bowel disease. In combination with medical therapies, surgical management of perianal fistulas is important for both infection control and definitive repair. Older surgical techniques include the placement of draining and cutting setons and endorectal advancement flaps. Newer surgical techniques that utilize lasers and video-assisted technology are being studied to help patients with chronic, refractory perianal fistulas...

Despite significant advances in the treatment of luminal inflammatory bowel disease, the treatment of perianal fistulas remains a clinical challenge. Perianal fistulas are traditionally described using the Parks classification based on their relationship to the external and internal anal sphincters. Traditional therapy for perianal fistulas focuses on antibiotics such as metronidazole or ciprofloxacin. However, medical management has expanded over the years to include immunomodulators and, most recently, biologic agents...

Adjoa Anyane-Yeboa, Wenfei Wang, Robert T Kavitt
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is defined as a chronic, immune/antigen-mediated esophageal disease that can lead to symptoms of esophageal dysfunction. This disease is seen in both children and adults. Approximately 70% of patients with EoE have food antigen sensitization or other atopic conditions, suggesting an allergic etiology in the pathogenesis of the disease. The role of allergy testing to identify foods that lead to EoE is unclear. Three types of allergy tests currently exist: skin prick testing, atopy patch testing, and immunoassays for serum food-specific immunoglobulin E...

Background: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) screening is traditionally performed using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and HCV infection is confirmed by measuring the viral load using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). An alternative screening approach is to use only PCR, without the ELISA pretest. Methods: We compared the cost ratio of screening for HCV using 2 approaches: (1) ELISA followed by PCR testing, and (2) PCR testing alone. The results were analyzed using a decision analysis model. A sensitivity analysis and a threshold analysis were performed by varying both the prevalence of HCV infection (to encompass populations in which viral infection is overrepresented) as well as the costs of PCR testing...
