Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is more frequent in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM).The aim of the present study was to evaluate GER in asymptomatic patients with DM using 24-h pH impedance.
This article was published in the following journal.
Combined 24-h intraesophageal pH-multichannel intraluminal impedance (24MII-pH) used for assessing gastroesophageal reflux disease by measuring baseline impedance (BI) requires a 24-h measuring period...
The purpose of this study was to explore the correlation between reflux type and abnormal esophageal motility in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
In most cases gastroesophageal reflux disease proceeds without macroscopic erosions in the esophagus. We aimed to clarify if abnormalities detectable in magnifying endoscopy may offer additional diagn...
Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is increasing recognized as an exacerbating or causal factor in several respiratory diseases. There is a high prevalence of GER in infants with airway malacia. However, s...
Laparoscopy-assisted proximal gastrectomy (LAPG) with esophagogastrostomy using the double-flap technique has been reported to rarely cause gastroesophageal reflux. However, quantitative evaluation of...
Cardiorespiratory and gastroesophageal reflux events often coexist in infants in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) thus leading to drugs over-prescription and delayed discharge. Through...
It has been reported that Baclofen is an appropriate tool in the therapeutic management of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. To objectify gastroesophageal reflux combined pH-metry/impedance...
The purpose of the study is to compare frequency and content of reflux episodes in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
The objective of this study is to design and use a novel, minimally invasive mucosal impedance (MI) technology to inexpensively and accurately test mucosal health in suspected gastroesopha...
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...
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.
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
Congenital vascular malformation in which the AORTA arch and its branches encircle the TRACHEA and ESOPHAGUS. Signs and symptoms include DYSPNEA; RESPIRATORY SOUNDS, especially with eating, DYSPHAGIA, persistent cough, and GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX or may be asymptomatic. Two most common types are double aortic arch and right aortic arch. It may be associated with other anomalies (e.g., DIGEORGE SYNDROME).
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
