BACKGROUND: Previous studies found an increased risk for microscopic colitis (MC) associated with proton pump inhibitors. In patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn's disease (CD), proton pump inhibitors have been associated with an increased risk for IBD flares and impaired outcomes. AIMS: To test the epidemiologic associations between gastrooesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and MC, UC or CD in a large database. METHOD: The Miraca Life Sciences Database is a national electronic repository of histopathological records of patients distributed throughout the entire US...

AIM OF THE STUDY: Conservative management of gastrooesophageal reflux (GORD) in oesophageal atresia (OA) is sometimes inefficient, and fundoplication is required. We assessed the outcomes of fundoplication among OA patients from 1980 to 2016. METHODS: After ethical consent, hospital records of 290 patients, including 22 referred patients, were reviewed. Included were 262 patients with end-to-end repair. Excluded were patients who underwent oesophageal reconstruction (n=23) or no repair (n=5)...

Although fructose was discovered in 1794, it was realised in recent decades only that its malabsorption can lead to intestinal symptoms while its excessive consumption induces metabolic disturbances. Fructose is a monosaccharide found naturally in most fruits and vegetables. Dietary intake of fructose has gradually increased in the past decades, especially because of the consumption of high fructose corn syrup. With its 16.4 kg/year consumption, Hungary ranks secondly after the United States. Fructose is absorbed in the small intestine by facilitated transport mediated by glucose transporter proteins-2 and -5, and arrives in the liver cells...

Barrett's oesophagus, with the potential to develop into oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC), is a major complication of gastrooesophageal reflux disease (GORD). However, about 50% of patients developing OAC had no known GORD beforehand. Hence, while GORD symptoms, oesophagitis, and Barrett's have a number of common determinants (oesophagogastric junction (OGJ) incompetence, impaired oesophageal clearance mechanisms, hiatus hernia) they also have some independent determinants. Further, although excess oesophageal acid exposure plays a major role in the genesis of long-segment Barrett's oesophagus there is minimal evidence supporting this for short-segment Barrett's...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Gastrooesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a significant problem in children with neurological impairment (NI) with high failure rates for fundoplication. Fundoplication with vagotomy and pyloroplasty (FVP) can improve the outcome by altering the sensory or motor dysfunction associated with the reflux. We report our comparative outcomes for simple fundoplication (SF) and FVP in NI children. METHODS: Case records of all patients having fundoplication under a single consultant at a tertiary UK paediatric surgical centre between January 1997 and December 2012 were retrospectively assessed for recurrent symptoms and redo surgery...

Gastroesophageal reflux (GOR) affects 2-8% of children over 3 years of age and is associated with significant morbidity. The disorder is particularly critical in neurologically impaired children, who have a high risk of aspiration. Traditionally, the surgical antireflux procedure of choice has been Nissen's operation. However, this technique has a significant incidence of mechanical complications and has a reoperation rate of approximately 7%, leading to the development of alternative approaches. Watson's technique of partial anterior fundoplication has been shown to achieve long-lasting reflux control in adults with few mechanical complications, but there is limited data in the paediatric population...

AIM: To examine the efficiency of oesophageal flap valvuloplasty and wrapping suturing technique in decreasing the rate of postoperative gastrooesophageal reflux disease in a dog model. METHODS: We operated on 10 dogs in this study. First, we resected a 5-cm portion of the distal oesophagus and then restored the continuity of the oesophageal and gastric walls by end-to-end anastomosis. A group of five dogs was subjected to the oesophageal flap valvuloplasty and wrapping suturing technique, whereas another group (control) of five dogs was subjected to the stapling technique after oesophagectomy...

Introduction: The gastrooesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a possible cause of chronic cough. The laparoscopic fundoplication is well established in the treatment of GERD. In a retrospective study, the effectivity of this operation on the GERD associated cough was examined and possible preoperative predictive factors concerning the post-surgical therapy effect were characterized. Patients and Methods: 85 patients after laparoscopic fundoplication due to GERD treated with proton pump inhibitors without (RS-H: n = 31) or with associated cough (RS+H: n = 54) were evaluated in a three-month follow-up by data analysis regarding an indication point score from typical symptoms as well as findings (gastroscopy, histology, 24-hour oesophagus pH-metry)...

BACKGROUND: Gastro-oesophageal reflux may accompany the corrosive oesophageal damage caused by the ingestion of corrosive substances and affect its treatment. The factors that affect the development of reflux in these cases and their effects on treatment still remain unclear. AIMS: Our aim is to investigate the prevalence of gastro-oesophageal reflux in children with corrosive oesophageal strictures, the risk factors affecting this prevalence and the effects of gastro-oesophageal reflux on treatment...

AIMS: Oesophageal atresia (OA) with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (TOF) is the most common congenital anomaly of the oesophagus. There is limited literature suggesting a linear relationship between increasing gap length and the incidence of all major complications. We sought to assess whether measured gap length at the time of surgery was related to outcomes in our patients. METHODS: All patients with a diagnosis of OA +/- TOF who underwent repair under a single surgeon between 1983 and 2012 were included...

The laparoscopic fundoplicatio is the "gold standard" among surgical therapy of gastrooesophageal reflux disease. In this context the Toupet fundoplicatio is an alternative indication to the Nissen fundoplicatio. The lesser dysphagia rate is specified as postoperative advantage. To avoid complications, a standardized procedure is relevant for a good postoperative outcome, even in more complex procedures. In this article, the indications and surgical methods are illustrated, as they are performed by the authors...

BACKGROUND: The increase of basement membrane thickness (BMAT) represents a structural feature described as commonly characterizing airway remodelling in asthma, even if the non-atopic condition had been investigated only episodically from this point of view. Gastrooesophageal-reflux is a pathological condition which can frequently cause and/or sustain asthma in non-atopic individuals. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to measure BMT; some inflammatory mediators in BAL; cys-leucotrienes (LTE4) in urine; e-NO, and BHR to Methacholine (MCh) in mild atopic and in mild non-atopic, GER-related asthma...

PROBLEMS/OBJECTIVES: A child's immune system cannot depend on a memory-type immune response and it also induces cytokine responses less efficiently. Biological conditions like allergy or cystic fibrosis, immune deficiency or gastrooesophageal reflux can induce and maintain background inflammation in children's upper airways, making newborns and children more susceptible to upper airway infections and inflammations. This paper will describe in brief how allergy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiency, nasal and paranasal anatomical variants, and gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) can affect the immune and inflammatory responses in upper airways and how they could interfere with immunity development and maturation in children...
