Eosinophilic esophagitis: updated consensus recommendations for children and adults.
U. S. Householder survey of functional gastrointestinal disorders
TLDR
Symptom reporting, except for incontinence, declines with age, and low income is associated with greater symptom reporting, and the rate of work/school absenteeism and physician visits is increased for those having a functional gastrointestinal disorder.
Endoscopic assessment of oesophagitis: clinical and functional correlates and further validation of the Los Angeles classification
TLDR
Results add further support to previous studies for the clinical utility of the Los Angeles system for endoscopic grading of oesophagitis and to the risk for symptom relapse off therapy over six months.
Functional esophageal disorders.
TLDR
The value of inclusive rather than restrictive diagnostic criteria that encompass other gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal symptoms should be examined to improve the accuracy of symptom-based criteria and reduce the dependence on objective testing.
The endoscopic assessment of esophagitis: a progress report on observer agreement.
TLDR
Endoscopists can identify mucosal breaks confined to a mucosal fold and lesions that extend throughout the esophageal circumference and Complications of reflux disease can be reproducibly recorded.
Ambulatory Esophageal pH Monitoring Using a Wireless System
TLDR
The wireless Bravo pH System successfully recorded esophageal acid exposure in 96% of the patients during a 24-h period and in 89% of subjects for >36 h, slightly higher than observed with conventional systems.
Updated International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria for Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Proceedings of the AGREE Conference.
TLDR
An updated diagnostic algorithm for EoE was developed, with removal of the PPI trial requirement, and the evidence suggests that PPIs are better classified as a treatment for esophageal eosinophilia that may be due to EOE than as a diagnostic criterion.
Role of acid and duodenogastroesophageal reflux in gastroesophageal reflux disease.
TLDR
Both acid and DGER show a graded increase in severity across the gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) spectrum.
Esomeprazole (40 mg) compared with lansoprazole (30 mg) in the treatment of erosive esophagitis
TLDR
Esomeprazoles (40 mg) is more effective than lansoprazole (30 mg) in healing erosive esophagitis and resolving heartburn and both treatments were well tolerated.
