This case report describes a patient with scleroderma who developed Mycobacterium intracellulare infection, which for more than a year mimicked worsening of her connective tissue disorder. The patient was diagnosed with scleroderma based on puffy fingers that developed into sclerodactyly, abnormal nail fold capillaries, interstitial lung disease, Raynaud's phenomenon, esophageal dysmotility, and positivity for rheumatoid factor and anti-SSA antibodies. She developed massive inflammatory changes of the cutis, the subcutis, and the muscle fasciae of the right leg, that after several failed attempts of immunosuppressive treatments were found to be caused by Mycobacterium intracellulare...

INTRODUCTION: A systematic review of the results of 15 epidemiological studies showed that the prevalence of GERD in the population of Western Europe and North America is 10-20%. The frequency of GERD prevalence in the population is obviously higher than that according to the data of statistics, due to the fact that only a small amount of patients with heartburn apply for medical care, and the fact that not all doctors, especially general practitioners, devote sufficient attention to this problem...

This case report describes the use a new flexible robotic system in otolaryngology, the FlexRobot(®) for cricopharyngeal myotomy in cadaver dissections, and for the treatment of a patient with esophageal stenosis and secondary dysphagia and dysphonia. The Flexrobot(®) facilitates access to the hypopharynx with increased proximity to the surgical field and improved optics, allowing more exact dilatation and injection in our patient. It also would allow surgeons to reach deep inside the cavity of the hypopharynx into anatomical regions that are typically inaccessible without an open approach, as shown in our cadaveric procedure, where full exposure of the posterior aspect of the cricopharyngeus and isolation of the muscle belly were achieved...

Chronic posterior elbow soft tissue defects often require soft tissue reconstruction because of exposure of the underlying triceps tendon and proximal ulna. Current options for soft tissue coverage require sacrifice of a local muscle or microsurgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate patient and surgical outcomes after reconstruction of small-sized to medium-sized (<50 cm) posterior elbow defects with bipedicle advancement flaps. A retrospective chart review was performed for 3 patients who underwent posterior elbow reconstruction with bipedicle flaps...

The classic manometric findings in systemic sclerosis are aperistalsis of the esophageal body with hypotensive lower esophageal sphincter. These changes contribute to gastroesophageal reflux disease in these patients. With widespread use of high-resolution esophageal manometry, diverse abnormalities are seen. The aim of this study is to characterize esophageal dysmotility in patients with systemic sclerosis undergoing high-resolution esophageal manometry and compare demographic features and diagnostic test results among patients with varying degrees of esophageal dysmotility...

Juvenile systemic sclerosis (JSSc) is a rare disorder with paucity of information on its treatment and longterm  outcome. Herein, we are sharing our experience with this rare entity. Case records of children, diagnosed to have systemic sclerosis attending Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi from January 1998 to June 2016 were reviewed. The demographic, clinical, laboratory, treatment and outcome details were recorded. Disease outcome was classified arbitrarily as controlled, partly controlled or non-responsive/progressive based on: (A) ability to perform activities of daily life (ADL) and (B) presence or absence of musculoskeletal symptoms, skin changes (ulceration/progressive digital pitting/gangrene), and visceral organ involvement (dyspahgia, cardiopulmonary symptoms)...

REVIEW
Quan M Nhu, Seema S Aceves
Chronic eosinophilic inflammation is associated with tissue remodeling and fibrosis in a number of chronic T-helper 2 (Th2)-mediated diseases including eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and asthma. Chronic inflammation results in dysregulated tissue healing, leading to fibrosis and end organ dysfunction, manifesting clinically as irreversible airway obstruction in asthma and as esophageal rigidity, strictures, narrowing, dysmotility, dysphagia, and food impactions in EoE. Current therapies for EoE and asthma center on reducing inflammation-driven tissue remodeling and fibrosis with corticosteroids, coupled with symptomatic control and allergen avoidance...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic fundoplication is the gold standard treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) refractory to medical management. Although many studies have compared Nissen fundoplication (NF) to Toupet fundoplication (TF), it is unclear which operation provides the best long-term reflux control. The objective of this study was to evaluate long-term quality-of-life (QoL) outcomes after NF versus TF. METHODS: Clinical data from our single academic institutional foregut database were used to identify patients who underwent NF or TF (June 2010 to May 2016)...

OBJECTIVES: Gastroesophageal reflux is common in patients post-lung transplantation (LTx) and thus considered a risk factor for aspiration and consequently allograft rejection and the development of chronic allograft failure. However, evidence supporting this remains unclear and often contradictory. Our aim was to examine the role played by esophageal motility on gastroesophageal reflux exposure, along with its clearance and that of boluses swallowed, and the relationship to development of obstructive chronic lung allograft dysfunction (o-CLAD)...

REVIEW
Christophe Faure, Franziska Righini Grunder
Esophageal dysmotility is almost universal after esophageal atresia (EA) repair and is mainly related to the developmental anomaly of the esophagus. Esophageal dysmotility is involved in the pathophysiology of numerous symptoms and comorbidities associated with EA such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, aspiration and respiratory complications, and symptoms of dysphagia and feeding disorders. High-resolution esophageal manometry (HREM) has facilitated the characterization of the dysmotility, but there is an incomplete correlation between symptoms and manometrical patterns...

Calcinosis in CREST (calcinosis, Raynaud's phenomenon, esophageal dysmotility, sclerodactyly, and telangiectasia) syndrome can affect the spinal and paraspinal areas. We present the first case to our knowledge where a CREST syndrome patient required surgery for spinal calcinosis in both the cervical and lumbar areas. A 66-year-old female with a history of CREST syndrome presented with right-sided lower extremity radicular pain. A computed tomography (CT) scan showed bilateral lumbar masses (5.8 cm on the right, 3...
