Playing a musical instrument can affect physical and mental health. A literature review was conducted to determine the prevalence of health problems among oboists, which medical conditions can be caused or exacerbated by playing, whether oboe playing can be a protective factor, and whether recommendations are possible as to who should or should not play the oboe. Searches in 7 databases (Medline, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, SocIndex, PsyIndex, Psychinfo) yielded a total of 950 studies; after exclusion of duplicates and those not meeting eligibility criteria, 37 articles were selected for final analysis...

In this review article important and frequently used investigation methods for gastrointestinal functional diagnostics are presented. Some other rarely used special investigations are also explained. The hydrogen breath test is simple to carry out, ubiquitously available and enables the detection of lactose, fructose and sorbitol malabsorption. Furthermore, by the application of glucose, the test can be carried out when there is a suspicion of abnormal intestinal bacterial colonization and using lactulose for measuring small intestinal transit time...

The combined course of bronchial asthma (BA) and digestive system pathology is one of the most frequent, severe and clinically varied pathology. The purpose of the paper - to study the influence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) on the course of BA and the effectiveness of antireflux therapy in combined pathology. Patients with combined pathology were treated in full-time department more frequently than patients with isolated BA (3,4±0,5 per year to - 1,8±0,3; р<0,05). The statistically reliable correlation between frequency of heartburn and frequency of cough, which goes over to asthma attacks was observed (r=0,59; р<0,05)...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has shown excellent results in terms of weight loss and resolution of comorbidities. Despite that, the effect of LSG on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is still a controversial topic. Our objective was to evaluate the presence of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms, erosive esophagitis (EE), and hiatal hernia (HH) in obese patients undergoing LSG. METHODS: Prospective observational study. LSG patients were studied before and at 18-month follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: Adenoidectomy is one of the most commonly performed pediatric operations worldwide. There are a proportion of children who require revision adenoidectomy. Yet there is little in the literature about the incidence, associated factors and etiology of adenoidal regrowth. The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to determine incidence and factors associated with revision adenoidectomy. METHODS: An extraction of all hospital morbidity records belonging to patients under the age of 18 years who underwent one or more adenoidectomy procedures (with or without tonsillectomy) between January 1, 2000 and June 2016 at a tertiary care children's hospital was performed...

Background: Gastroesophageal pathologies are common and multifactorial in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM). The evaluation with endoscopy and 24 h pH esophageal monitoring is expensive and not always available in all medical centers, especially in developing countries so more cost-effective algorithms for diagnosis are required. Clinical questionnaires are easy to apply but its utility for gastroesophageal reflux disease screening in patients with long standing T1DM must be analyzed...

When pediatric gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that is refractory to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) medication treatment is identified in clinical practice and anti-reflux surgery (ARS) is being considered, genetic factors related to PPI metabolism by the CYP2C19 enzyme are currently not part of the clinical decision-making process. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that the distribution of the extensive metabolizer (EM) phenotypes among children undergoing ARS after failing PPI therapy would differ compared to controls (children with no history of ARS)...

The histological commitment of the lower oesophageal mucosa largely depends on a complex molecular landscape. After extended inflammatory insult due to gastroesophageal reflux disease, squamous oesophageal mucosa may differentiate into columnar metaplastic mucosa. In this setting, the presence of intestinal metaplasia is considered the starting point of Barrett's carcinogenetic cascade. Aside from secondary prevention strategies for Barrett's mucosa (BM) patients, there are multiple endoscopic ablative therapies available for BM eradication and for the replacement of metaplastic epithelia with a neosquamous mucosa...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is defined as symptoms or complications associated with regurgitation from the stomach and/or the duodenum to the esophagus. Patients with type II diabetes mellitus (DM) were known to have higher prevalence of GERD in the Western countries, but data on the impact of GERD on DM patients in our country are scarce. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate the presence of GERD in type II DM patients admitted at the Department of Medicine, Mymensingh Medical College Hospital, Mymensingh, Bangladesh from April 2015 to September 2015...

Objective: Published research in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) appears limited despite OSA being a highly prevalent adult and pediatric disease leading to many adverse outcomes if left untreated. We aimed to quantify the deficit in OSA scientific literature in order to provide a novel way of identifying gaps in knowledge and a need for further research inquiry. Methods: This was a Bibliometric analysis study. Using Ovid Medline database we analyzed and compared research output (medical and surgical) between adult OSA and similarly prevalent chronic conditions (Type II diabetes (T2DM), coronary artery disease (CAD) and osteoarthritis (OA)) from December 2016 up to fifty years prior...

BACKGROUND: Single anastomosis gastric bypass (SaGB) was introduced in 2001 as an alternative to "loop" gastric bypass. It was considered as a procedure that would eliminate alkaline reflux and associated esophagitis. OBJECTIVES: Existing evidence about the postoperative incidence of gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) after SaGB is based on studies using symptom questionnaires. The aim of our study was to evaluate GERD 12 months after SaGB by using 24-hour multichannel intraluminal impedance pH metry (24-h MIIpH)...
