Convenient Method of Measuring Baseline Impedance for Distinguishing Patients with Functional Heartburn from those with Proton Pump Inhibitor-Resistant Endoscopic Negative Reflux Disease.

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. In the present study, we developed a quick method of measuring BI and evaluated its usefulness in classifying patients with proton pump inhibitor (PPI)-refractory non-erosive reflux diseases (NERD) as having functional heartburn (FH) or endoscopic-negative reflux disease (ENRD).


Gastroesophageal reflux disease: from heartburn to Barrett esophagus, and beyond.

Model to Select On-Therapy vs Off-Therapy Tests for Patients with Refractory Esophageal or Extra-Esophageal Symptoms.

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 patients by pH monitoring when they are on or off acid-suppressive therapies based on pre-test probability of reflux, determined by expert consensus. However, it is not clear what constitutes a low or high pre-test probability of reflux in these patients. We aimed to develop a model that clinicians can use at bed...


Cough reflex sensitivity does not correlate with the esophageal sensitivity to acid in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.

The sensitization of cough reflex observed in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is attributed to activation of vagal C-fibers innervating the esophagus by acid, while the heartburn in GERD is mediated by esophageal acid sensitive C-fibers derived from (dorsal root ganglia) DRG. Here we explored the relationship between cough reflex sensitivity (CRS) and esophageal sensitivity to acid. We evaluated CRS to capsaicin inhalation and esophageal sensitivity to acid (intensity of heartburn evoke...

Treating Gastroesophageal Reflux and Heartburn While Breastfeeding.

Sleep and Nocturnal Gastroesophageal Reflux: An Update.

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 occurrence leads to sleep disruption, as well as esophageal, laryngeal, and laryngopharyngeal reflux. Controversy exists on whether obstructive sleep apnea and nocturnal reflux are causally linked or merely associated because of shared risk factors. Advances in diagnostic technology have provided new insights in...

Barrett's Esophagus - State of the Art.

Barrett's Esophagus (BE) is defined as a premalignant condition, where the esophageal squamous epithelium is replaced by intestinal epithelium. Specialized intestinal columnar metaplasia, typical for Barrett's esophagus, does not generate any symptoms. Most of the patients are initially seen for symptoms associated with the gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), such as heartburn, regurgitation and dysphagia. The histological progression from intestinal metaplasia to dysplasia and then to BE-associated ade...

Correlation between the reflux finding score and the reflux symptom index in patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux.

LaryngoPharyngeal Reflux (LPR) is characterized by symptoms, signs, and/or tissue damage resulting from the aggression of the gastrointestinal contents in the upper airways. The Reflux Finding Score (RFS) assesses the laryngeal signs through laryngoscopy. The Reflux Symptom Index (RSI) scores the LPR symptoms. The objective of this real-world study was to compare RFS with RSI in a cohort of Italian LPR patients. Globally, 3932 patients with LPR were evaluated and RFS and RSI were assessed in all subjects. A...

Simultaneous laryngopharyngeal pH monitoring (Restech) and conventional esophageal pH monitoring-correlation using a large patient cohort of more than 100 patients with suspected gastroesophageal reflux disease.

24-hour esophageal pH-metry is not designed to detect laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). The new laryngopharyngeal pH-monitoring system (Restech) may detect LPR better. There is no established correlation between these two techniques as only small case series exist. The aim of this study is to examine the correlation between the two techniques with a large patient cohort. All patients received a complete diagnostic workup for gastroesophageal reflux including symptom evaluation, endoscopy, 24-hour pH-metry, hi...

Coming of Age: Celebrating 15 Years of Texas Tort Reform.

After 15 years, the power of Texas' tort reforms shows up in both the numbers and the attitudes of physicians across the state, with less pressure to practice defensively, and more specialists filling rural voids.

Focus on gastroesophageal reflux (GER) and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR): new pragmatic insights in clinical practice.

Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is a common disease usually limited to the oesophagus. Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is an inflammatory reaction of the mucosa of pharynx, larynx, and other associated upper respiratory organs, caused by a reflux of stomach contents outside the oesophagus. LPR is considered to be a relatively new clinical entity with a vast number of clinical manifestations which are treated sometimes empirically and without a correct diagnosis. However, there is disagreement between specialis...

Relieving laryngopharingeral reflux (RELIEF) survey in otolaryngology - the viewpoint of the otorhinolaryngologist.

Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) should be considered as part of extraesophageal reflux (EER). This reflux involves respiratory structures other than, or in addition to, the oesophagus. A new medical device for the treatment of gastric reflux, including LPR, has been launched in Italy: Marial®. Therefore, the aim of the present survey was to analyse the prescriptive behaviour both considering the past or current treatments and clinical features during a specialist routine visit. The current survey was conduc...

Effect of Postprandial Administration of Esomeprazole on Reflux Symptoms in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: A Randomized, Controlled Trial.

Esomeprazole is commonly administered with food; however, clinical data to support this practice are lacking. We aimed to determine the effect of postprandial ingestion of esomeprazole on reflux symptoms among patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Notes from the Field: Mumps Outbreak Associated with Cheerleading Competitions - North Texas, December 2016-February 2017.

The Texas Gulf Coast Graduate Nurse Education Demonstration: Collaboration in Action.

Advance Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) are increasing in number and their value is becoming more evident as Texas and the region face a severe shortage of primary care physicians. APRNs can assist in meeting the needs of a growing and complex healthcare system. Increasing the pool of APRNs will allow healthcare providers to improve access to care and deliver quality outcomes. Hospitals and other healthcare providers have been limited in the number of APRN students they could accept for clinical training...

Capitol Matters: TMA Weighs in on Medicaid MCO's, Telemedicine Before Texas Legislature.

Reflux after esophagectomy with gastric conduit reconstruction in the posterior mediastinum for esophageal cancer: original questionnaire and EORTC QLQ-C30 survey.

Reflux following an esophagectomy with gastric conduit reconstruction in the posterior mediastinum is a clinically significant problem. In this study, we investigated the frequency and impact of reflux on the quality of life (QOL) among 158 patients who underwent an esophagectomy for esophageal cancer using an original questionnaire and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Version 3.0 (EORTC QLQ-C30). Reflux frequency was assessed using the original qu...

Hematology of Free-ranging and Managed Texas Horned Lizards ( Phrynosoma cornutum).

The Texas horned lizard ( Phrynosoma cornutum) is a threatened species in Texas (federal category C2). Causes for population declines in this species are likely multiple. Disease and health assessments using traditional methods, including hematology, have been minimally studied in Phrynosoma spp. Apparently healthy, free-ranging Texas horned lizard from four locations in Texas ( n=53) and captive Texas horned lizards maintained at the Fort Worth Zoo ( n=16) were sampled to establish hematologic reference in...

Phosphine Exposure Among Emergency Responders - Amarillo, Texas, January 2017.

Phosphine is a highly toxic gas that forms when aluminum phosphide, a restricted-use pesticide* typically used in agricultural settings, reacts with water. Acute exposure can lead to a wide range of respiratory, cardiovascular, and gastrointestinal symptoms, and can be fatal (1). On January 2, 2017, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) was notified by the Texas Panhandle Poison Center of an acute phosphine exposure incident in Amarillo, Texas. DSHS investigated potential occupational phosphi...

The added value of magnifying endoscopy in diagnosing patients with certain gastroesophageal reflux disease.

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 diagnostic criteria for gastroesophageal reflux disease and to what histopathologic structures do they correspond.

Implication of Nilgai Antelope (Artiodactyla: Bovidae) in Reinfestations of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Acari: Ixodidae) in South Texas: A Review and Update.

The Cattle Fever Tick Eradication Program was the first parasite eradication program of veterinary importance in the United States and is considered to be one of the greatest disease eradication programs of all time. The program's utilization of pasture vacation and dipping of cattle in acaricide has been extremely successful for controlling Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini) and R. (B.) annulatus (Say), collectively known as cattle fever ticks, on cattle along the Texas border with Mexico for...

Building a model for day case hiatal surgery - Lessons learnt over a 10 year period in a high volume unit: A case series.

Laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery has become the standard treatment for symptomatic gastro-oesophageal reflux disease refractory to medical therapy. Successful anti-reflux surgery involves safe, minimally invasive surgery, resulting in symptom resolution with minimal side effects. This study aims to assess the feasibility and safety of day case anti-reflux surgery focussing on peri- and post-operative outcomes as a measure of success.

Utility of Water Siphon Maneuver for Eliciting Gastroesophageal Reflux During Barium Esophagography: Correlation With Histologic Findings.

The objective of this study is to evaluate whether the water siphon maneuver improves detection of gastroesophageal (GE) reflux during barium esophagography compared with observation for spontaneous reflux only. Histopathologic analysis is the reference standard.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GER) and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are common in infants and children.

Molecular resolution to a morphological controversy: the case of North American fossil muskoxen Bootherium and Symbos.

The musk ox (Ovibos moschatus) is the only surviving member of a group of Pleistocene North American musk ox genera (Praeovibos, Ovibos, Bootherium, Euceratherium, and Soergelia) whose taxonomy is uncertain. The helmeted musk ox (Bootherium bombifrons) and the woodland musk ox (Symbos cavifrons) have been synonymised as male and female forms of a single Nearctic species found from Alaska, in the north, to Texas, in the south. However, this reclassification has not been tested using molecular data, despite t...
