U. S. Householder survey of functional gastrointestinal disorders
Our objective was to obtain national data of the estimated prevalence, sociodemographic relationships, and health impact of persons with functional gastrointestinal disorders. We surveyed aExpand
Endoscopic assessment of oesophagitis: clinical and functional correlates and further validation of the Los Angeles classification
BACKGROUND Endoscopic oesophageal changes are diagnostically helpful and identify patients exposed to the risk of disease chronicity. However, there is a serious lack of agreement about how toExpand
Functional esophageal disorders.
The functional esophageal disorders include globus, rumination syndrome, and symptoms that typify esophageal diseases (chest pain, heartburn, and dysphagia). Factors responsible for symptomExpand
The endoscopic assessment of esophagitis: a progress report on observer agreement.
BACKGROUND & AIMS The study and management of reflux esophagitis require an endoscopic classification system founded on esophageal lesions that can be reproducibly identified. The aim of this studyExpand
Ambulatory Esophageal pH Monitoring Using a Wireless System
OBJECTIVES:Limitations of catheter-based esophageal pH monitoring are discomfort, inconvenience, and interference with normal activity. An alternative to conventional pH monitoring is the wirelessExpand
Inflammation and intestinal metaplasia of the gastric cardia: the role of gastroesophageal reflux and H. pylori infection.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Whether inflammation of the cardia indicates gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and/or is a manifestation of pangastritis caused by Helicobacter pylori infection is unknown. TheExpand
Efficacy and safety of esomeprazole compared with omeprazole in GERD patients with erosive esophagitis: a randomized controlled trial
