The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of salivary pepsin with oropharyngeal pH monitoring using the Restech measurement system (Dx-pH) for the diagnosis of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Laryngoscope
To investigate the relationship between the laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) episodes at the multichannel intraluminal impedance-pH monitoring (MII-pH) and the concentration of pepsin in the saliva of L...
To summarize current knowledge about the prevalence, etiology and management of recalcitrant laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) patients - those who do not respond to anti-reflux medical treatment.
The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of 24-h pharyngeal pH monitoring in the diagnosis of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) in children with voice disorders.
Patients with isolated laryngopharyngeal reflux symptoms (LPRS) defined as those without concomitant typical reflux symptoms (CTRS) are clinically challenging to manage due to unclear pathophysiology....
pH monitoring can reflect the changes in H in the airway.
The diagnostics of extraesophageal reflux (EER) is challenging. Currently, 24-h dual-probe esophageal pH monitoring or impedance is considered the best diagnostic method for EER. The 24-h ...
This study is a test of how well a new FDA-approved device is for diagnosing a condition known as laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). The device, which measures pH of the air in the upper thro...
It is postulated that the incompetence of the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) to restrict passage of esophageal refluxate is fundamental to the development of LPR. The UES Assist Device (...
The purpose of this research study is to see if GE reflux events are associated with increasing levels of pepsin in spit samples. Pepsin is a special protein called an "enzyme" that is mad...
Hypothesis: 1. Tissue and salivary pepsin will resolve after 12 weeks use of Reza band, but not following standard of care alone. 2. RFS, RSI and inflammatory cytokines (I...
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.
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.
Analysis of the HYDROGEN ION CONCENTRATION in the lumen of the ESOPHAGUS. It is used to record the pattern, frequency, and duration 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.
Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
