Gastroesophageal reflux (GER), and its complicated form gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common condition in infants and children. As GERD is often considered to cause extra-oesophageal symptoms in children and in the absence of standardized diagnostic and treatment algorithm, many children are inappropriately exposed to empirical anti-reflux treatments, with Acid-Suppressive Medications (ASM); mostly proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Areas covered: The authors summarize the pharmacological manageme...
Thirty-two patients with refractory LPR confirmed by 24-h MII-pH were given a 3-month course of baclofen 10 mg three times a day combined with PPI 15 mg twice a day. Changes in RSI and reflux-related quality of life from baseline to after treatment were evaluated. MII-pH monitoring of refractory LPR patients showed that the number of non-acid reflux was much higher than acid reflux in laryngopharyngeal reflux and full-column reflux. After 3 months of PPI + baclofen medication, most RSI items and quality of ...
Sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) has an incidence of 1.2-2.5/1000 in children. Onset is around puberty. Symptoms of recurrent abscess and chronic suppuration may interfere with education and social integration. Treatments should cause minimal disruption while having good cure and recurrence rates. Curettage and Fibrin glue obliteration (FGO) show promising results in adults. We present our experience of its use in children.
Self-expanding metal stents (SEMSs) when deployed across the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) can lead to reflux with risks of aspiration. A SEMS with a tricuspid anti-reflux valve (SEMS-V) was designed to address this issue. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of this stent.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of empirical medical treatment in patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) disease by scoring the findings and symptoms. Hence, 122 patients were examined at the voice laboratory with a laryngovideostroboscopic device, and all results were recorded for further evaluation. Patients were treated with lansoprazole twice a day. All patients were evaluated before and during the treatment period at the first and third months. The reflux symptom ind...
Adherence to medication is a key factor for successful treatment of children with ADHD. However, most children do not adhere to their pharmacotherapy regimen, and have no contact with their physician during the first month of pharmacotherapy. A mobile health (mHealth) approach may bridge the gap between physicians and patients, allowing for more frequent communications as well as better monitoring of adherence to the prescribed treatment.
Data relating to the role that Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) contributes towards seizures in HIV-infected children is limited. The management of seizures in this group is complex due to potential interactions between antiseizure medication and antiretroviral therapies. This study explores the seizure semiology and course of a population of affected children based on questions raised from a previous epidemiological study.
N-butyl cyanoacrylate glue (n-BCA, Cerenovus, Irvine, California) is commonly used to treat arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Even though Onyx (ethylene vinyl alcohol, Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland) presents more controlled injection, n-BCA is colorless, thus preferable for treatment of superficial facial malformations. N-BCA injection into AVM can result in premature distal migration or early precipitation and reflux into the feeder vessels. Here we describe a trans-arterial balloon assisted technique emboliz...
The significance of intrarenal reflux as a risk factor for renal scarring and hypertension has been discussed. Fluoroscopic detection of intrarenal reflux depends on the equipment, the training of the radiologists and the timing of spot film acquisition.
Recommended first line treatment in anti-NMDAR encephalitis includes steroids, IVIG, or plasma exchange. However, IVIG is non-reimbursable through Thailand's Universal Health Coverage. This study investigated outcomes from different treatments for anti-NMDAR encephalitis. Nineteen children in three treatments group: steroid alone, IVIG alone, and IVIG and steroid were reviewed. IVIG was administered to 13 (68%) and 6 (32%) only received steroids. Those receiving IVIG treatment with or without steroids had g...
Long-term safety, effectiveness and criteria for treatment with statins in children are still unclear in clinical practice. There is very limited evidence for the use of medication to treat children with dyslipidemia secondary to obesity who do not respond well to lifestyle modification.
Respiratory infections, mainly in children, are a demanding challenge for physicians. Commonly, a relative immune-defect sustains their recurrence. At present, there is no standardized treatment for their prevention acting on the immune system. Citomix is a low-dose multicomponent medication largely used in this issue. The current study evaluated its ex vivo effect on adenoidal mononuclear cells recovered from children operated for adenoid hypertrophy. B cell phenotype, and IFN-γ, IL-6, IL-10, IgG, IgA, Ig...
Asthma causes enormous suffering and cost for children in the US and around the world [1-3]. Co-morbid gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) makes asthma management more difficult due to increased symptoms. Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs are effective at improving to GERD symptoms, however they have demonstrated only modest and variable effects on asthma control in the setting of co-morbid GERD. Importantly, PPI metabolism and efficacy depend on CYP2C19 genotype. The Genotype Tailored Treatment of Sympt...
Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are commonly prescribed to children with oropharyngeal dysphagia and resultant aspiration based on the assumption that these patients are at greater risk for reflux-related lung disease. There is little data to support this approach and the potential risk for increased infections in children treated with PPI may outweigh any potential benefit.
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) corresponds to the reflux of urine from the bladder into the upper urinary system. It can be a congenital or an acquired anomaly and although its incidence is high in children it is uncommon in the adult life. One of its presentations in the adult population is the presence of recurrent Pyelonephritis.
Pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is a common, chronic inflammatory condition involving hair follicles within the natal cleft. It mainly affects young males and creates a significant health, social and economic burden. Traditional surgery is often radical resulting in pain, wound complications, long recovery times and poor cosmesis. The aim of our study was to evaluate fibrin glue as a primary treatment for PSD.
Influenza is a significant cause of childhood morbidity and death; it contributes to up to 16% of hospitalizations for respiratory illnesses worldwide. Novel rapid viral diagnostic tests, including molecular diagnostic tests, have the potential to significantly affect both time to diagnosis and selection of optimal anti-infective therapy. However, little is known about current treatment algorithms used in US hospitals. In this study, for hospitalized children in the United States, we aimed to define the cur...
Acute asthma exacerbations are among the most common reasons for childhood emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations. Although early ED administration of asthma medication has been shown to decrease hospitalizations, studies of factors associated with early ED asthma medication delivery have been limited. The objective of our study was to identify patient- and ED-related factors associated with early medication delivery among children treated in the ED for asthma exacerbations.
Medication treatment with methadone or buprenorphine has shown demonstrated effectiveness for opioid dependence; while premature discharge is associated with adverse outcomes. Specific reasons for premature discharge generally fall into 2 broad categories (ie, patient- and program-initiated). Previous studies have typically failed to distinguish between different types of discharge reasons among patients who leave treatment early. This study sought to determine whether type of medication was associated with...
Although around 30% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are insufficiently treated with medical therapy, only 1% opt for surgical therapy. One of the reasons behind this multifactorial phenomenon is the described adverse effect of long-term dysphagia or gastric bloating syndrome after surgical treatment. Aim of this study was to evaluate the most common side effects associated with anti-reflux surgery, as well as long-term outcomes in a large cohort of highly surgically standardized pati...
Acute pyelonephritis is associated with considerable morbidity and potential for renal scarring. Pentraxin3 (PTX3) is a recently discovered mediator of inflammation. The objective of this study was to investigate the changes in serum and urine PTX3 levels in children who had a history of pyelonephritis and were diagnosed with renal parenchymal scar (RPS) and/or vesicoureteral reflux (VUR).
Restoration of the esophagogastric junction competence is critical for effective long-term treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Surgical repair results in such restoration, but mechanical adverse effects seem unavoidable. Minimizing these adverse effects without jeopardizing reflux control is warranted.
Medication self-management is critical among children with epilepsy. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the perceptions regarding the quality of discharge education among parents of children with epilepsy. In addition, we assessed the impact of their perceptions on medication self-management. The quality of discharge education was assessed in two parts: content and delivery. The quality of delivery was defined as the manner in which nurses teach the content regarding hospital discharge.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and functional dyspepsia (FD) are frequently overlapped. However, no treatment strategies have been established yet for such patients. This study compared the effects of proton pump inhibitor (PPI) treatment in patients with GERD-associated FD among three groups with varying severity levels of GERD symptoms.
More and more clinical trials have tried to assess the clinical benefit of anti-interleukin (IL)-13 monoclonal antibodies for uncontrolled asthma. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of anti-IL-13 monoclonal antibodies for uncontrolled asthma. Major databases were searched for randomized controlled trials comparing the anti-IL-13 treatment and a placebo in uncontrolled asthma. Outcomes, including asthma exacerbation rate, forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), Asthma Quality o...
