OBJECTIVES Predicting response to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy in patients with laryngeal symptoms is challenging. The Restech Dx-pH probe is a transnasal catheter that measures oropharyngeal pH. In this study, we aimed to investigate the prognostic potential of oropharyngeal pH monitoring to predict responsiveness to PPI therapy in patients with(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS It has been a challenge to confirm the association between laryngeal symptoms and physiological reflux disease. We examined the ability of oropharyngeal pH tests (with the Restech Dx-pH system) and salivary pepsin tests (with Peptest) to discriminate between asymptomatic volunteers (controls) and subjects with a combination of laryngeal(More)
A patient with acute severe mitral regurgitation resulting from papillary muscle dysfunction which developed on the third day of acute myocardial infarction underwent early successful mitral valve prosthetic replacement with concomitant aortocoronary saphenous vein bypass. The concept of acute severe mitral regurgitation due to an infarcted papillary muscle(More)
