AIMS To evaluate the impact of total and proximal stomach emptying on 24 hour and postprandial reflux as well as the number of reflux episodes per hour in relation to the impact of lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS) pressure, and oesophageal contractile and clearance function. METHODS Seventy one outpatients (37 female, 34 male; age 23-82 years) with(More)
BACKGROUND Information about gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in patients with Diabetes mellitus type 2 (T2D) is scarce, although the incidence of both disorders is increasing. METHODS This "retro-pro" study compared 65 T2D patients to a control group of 130 age- and sex-matched non-diabetics. GERD was confirmed by gastroscopy, manometry, pH-metry(More)
The following includes commentaries on clinical features and imaging of Barrett's esophagus (BE); the clinical factors that influence the development of BE; the influence of body fat distribution and central obesity; the role of adipocytokines and proinflammatory markers in carcinogenesis; the role of body mass index (BMI) in healing of Barrett's(More)
BACKGROUND Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common chronic disease requiring adequate treatment since it represents one major cause of development of Barrett's esophagus and eventually carcinoma. Novel laparoscopic magnetic sphincter augmentation for GERD was evaluated prospectively. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 23 patients with GERD(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare videofluoroscopy that included a tablet test with impedance planimetry (EndoFLIP®) for the evaluation of oesophageal stenosis in patients with dysphagia. METHODS In 56 patients, videofluoroscopic examinations following the transit of a 14-mm tablet were retrospectively reviewed and correlated with impedance planimetry findings, a(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are major health problems showing an inconstant relationship in the literature. Therefore, anthropometric parameters which are predictive and can simply be assessed at first patient presentation may lead to a better patient selection for ambulatory reflux monitoring. We aimed to examine the(More)
