Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is postulated to play a role in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). However, the value of objective GER measures in predicting IPF disease progression is unclear. We aim to evaluate the association between objective GER measures on multichannel intraluminal impedance and pH (MII-pH) testing and development of poor pulmonary outcomes within 1 year in prelung transplant IPF patients.

Nocturnal gastroesophageal reflux has been associated with poor sleep quality. Normal physiologic adaptations of the aerodigestive system to sleep prolong and intensify nocturnal reflux events. This o...
It is not clear whether we should test for reflux in patients with refractory heartburn or extra-esophageal reflux (EER) symptoms, such as cough, hoarseness, or asthma. Guidelines recommend testing pa...
The relationship between gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is controversial. Current guidelines recommend that clinicians use regular antacid treatment, wh...
Management of complicated reflux in infants and children is controversial. Jejunal feedings are used when reflux complications occur with gastric feeds. We sought to determine how successful fundoplic...
Main pulmonary artery (MPA) stiffness and abnormal flow haemodynamics in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) are strongly associated with elevated right ventricular (RV) afterload and associated wit...
Recent work at St. Thomas' has validated an innovative new design of a multichannel intraluminal impedance (MII) catheter that is sensitive to variation in oesophageal volume in healthy vo...
Gastroesophageal reflux events generally happen during relaxation of lower esophageal sphincter. This relaxation is a reflex that is triggered by gastric stimuli. The investigators hypothe...
The purpose of this observational study is to examine RSI (Reflux Symptom Index) and RFS (Reflux Finding Score) by treatment period before and after rabeprazole treatment in LaryngoPharyng...
Wheezy infants were tested for gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) using combined multiple channel intraluminal impedance-pH (MII-pH), esophagogastroduodenoscope (EGD), lipid laden mac...
Background: After hypotension, oliguria (urine output less than 0.5 mL/kg/h) was the most common trigger to administer fluid bolus in a multinational practice survey in intensive care. The...
An abnormal lipoprotein present in large amounts in patients with obstructive liver diseases such as INTRAHEPATIC CHOLESTASIS. LP-X derives from the reflux of BILE lipoproteins into the bloodstream. LP-X is a low-density lipoprotein rich in free CHOLESTEROL and PHOSPHOLIPIDS but poor in TRIGLYCERIDES; CHOLESTEROL ESTERS; and protein.
Retrograde bile flow. Reflux of bile can be from the duodenum to the stomach (DUODENOGASTRIC REFLUX); to the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX); or to the PANCREAS.
Back flow of gastric contents to the LARYNGOPHARYNX where it comes in contact with tissues of the upper aerodigestive tract. Laryngopharyngeal reflux is an extraesophageal manifestation of GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX.
A condition with damage to the lining of the lower ESOPHAGUS resulting from chronic acid reflux (ESOPHAGITIS, REFLUX). Through the process of metaplasia, the squamous cells are replaced by a columnar epithelium with cells resembling those of the INTESTINE or the salmon-pink mucosa of the STOMACH. Barrett's columnar epithelium is a marker for severe reflux and precursor to ADENOCARCINOMA of the esophagus.
A congenital heart defect characterized by the narrowing or complete absence of the opening between the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the PULMONARY ARTERY. Lacking a normal PULMONARY VALVE, unoxygenated blood in the right ventricle can not be effectively pumped into the lung for oxygenation. Clinical features include rapid breathing, CYANOSIS, right ventricle atrophy, and abnormal heart sounds (HEART MURMURS).

Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
