INTRODUCTION A Nissen fundoplication for gastrooesophageal reflux disease may more often lead to persistent dysphagia than a Toupet fundoplication. The aim of this study was to assess the results of laparoscopic Nissen versus Toupet fundoplication in patients with reflux disease and impaired distal esophageal motility. PATIENTS AND METHODS In 15 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a novel treatment for esophageal motility disorders such as achalasia. To date, the extent of the myotomy has been determined based on the subjective assessment of the endoscopist. We hypothesized that the real-time measurement of esophagogastric junction (EGJ) distensibility using a novel functional(More)
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 The impact from the mode of operation (partial vs total fundoplication) on long-term outcome after fundoplication still is unknown, although short-term randomized studies have not shown significant differences in the efficacy of reflux control. To obtain some insight concerning the long-term results, the data of a nonrandomized cohort were(More)
Previous studies in diabetic patients suggested a relationship between delayed gastric emptying and increased ingesta retention in either proximal or distal stomach, but the determinants underlying these abnormalities remained obscure. We aimed at assessing the impact of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, blood glucose concentration, long-term glycemic(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)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to assess the relationship between gastric emptying of glucose solution and the ensuing plasma concentrations of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), peptide YY (PYY), and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) in patients having undergone fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS In(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)
