The EndoFLIP (Endolumenal Functional Lumen Imaging Probe, Crospon Inc, Galway, Ireland) device uses the technique of impedance planimetry to evaluate dimensions and distensibility of the upper and lower esophageal sphincter. The null hypotheses for this study were that EndoFLIP variables would be stable between anesthestic episodes and would not be affected by body position when evaluating the upper and lower esophageal sphincters in healthy dogs. During each of three consecutive general anesthesia episodes administered to eight healthy adult research colony dogs with a standardized protocol, the EndoFLIP catheter was positioned to measure cross-sectional area, intrabag pressure, upper and lower esophageal sphincter length at two different balloon fill volumes (30 and 40 mL) and two body positions (lateral and dorsal recumbency)...

BACKGROUND: Valvuloplastic esophagogastrostomy by double flap technique (VEG-DFT) is a promising procedure to prevent reflux after proximal gastrectomy (PG), and is achieved by the burial of the abdominal esophagus into the gastric submucosa; however, laparoscopic VEG-DFT is technically demanding due to complicated suturing and ligation maneuvers. The present study was designed to determine the feasibility and safety of robotic VEG-DFT. METHODS: After robotic PG, seromuscular flaps were extracorporeally created at the anterior wall of the remnant stomach through a small umbilical incision...

Esophageal stricture occurs in 7-23% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. However, the current treatments including stent therapy, balloon dilation, and bougienage involve limitations such as stent migration, formation of the new strictures, and snowplow effect. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the feasibility of structural expansion in tubular tissue ex vivo during temperature-monitored photothermal treatment with a diffusing applicator for esophageal stricture. Porcine liver was used as an ex vivo tissue sample for the current study...

OBJECTIVES: Although endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is an efficient treatment for superficial esophageal cancer, it is associated with stricture formation after wide-circumference resection that leads to a low quality of life. Although locoregional steroid injections prevent stricture formation, a randomized comparative study did not report any advantages associated with steroid injection. We evaluated the prophylactic efficacy of a single locoregional triamcinolone injection for stricture formation after esophageal ESD...

Endoscopy plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of postoperative complications of gastric cancer. Endoscopic intervention can avoid the second operation and has attracted wide attention. Early gastric anastomotic bleeding after gastrectomy is the most common. With the development of technology, emergency endoscopy and endoscopic hemostasis provide a new treatment approach. According to the specific circumstances, endoscopists can choose metal clamp to stop bleeding, electrocoagulation hemostasis, local injection of epinephrine or sclerotherapy agents, and spraying specific hemostatic agents...

RATIONALE: Spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilation increases transpulmonary pressure and tidal volume, and worsens lung injury. Intuitively, controlling tidal volume and transpulmonary pressure might limit injury from added spontaneous effort. OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis that during spontaneous effort in injured lungs, tidal volume and transpulmonary pressure limitation by volume-controlled ventilation results in less injurious patterns of inflation...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a clinicopathological condition of the esophagus that has become increasingly recognised over the last decade. EoE represents a chronic immune-mediated inflammatory disease of the esophagus. In adults dysphagia is the predominant symptom. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is required in order to take biopsies from the esophagus. The diagnose is confirmed histologically by typical eosinophilic infiltration of the esophagus mucosa. Until now there is no approved therapy world-wide although we know that topic and systemic steroids are highly effective in EoE...

OBJECTIVE: Current methods of obtaining esophageal cytology include brush biopsy and blind balloon sampling, among others. These methods can be time-consuming if performed in accordance with acknowledged standards. Further, exact site localization can prove to be difficult. We describe a novel device for esophageal sampling using an esophageal balloon with debriding strips contained within the pleats of the balloon. Inflation brings the latter in contact with the surface to be sampled...

AIM: To evaluate the risks of medical conditions, evaluate gastric sleeve narrowing, and assess hydrostatic balloon dilatation to treat dysphagia after vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG). METHODS: VSG is being performed more frequently worldwide as a treatment for medically-complicated obesity, and dysphagia is common post-operatively. We hypothesize that post-operative dysphagia is related to underlying medical conditions or narrowing of the gastric sleeve. This is a retrospective, single institution study of consecutive patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy from 2013 to 2015...
