This paper gives practical guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of chronic pancreatitis. Statements have been elaborated by working teams of experts, by searching for and analysing the literature, and submitted to a consensus process by using a Delphi modified procedure. The statements report recommendations on clinical and nutritional approach,(More)
AIM To investigate gastrointestinal complications associated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) use in children. METHODS A retrospective, multicenter study was conducted between January 2005 and January 2013, with the participation of 8 Italian pediatric gastroenterology centers. We collected all the cases of patients who refer to(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The authors' 15-year experience with children shows a high percentage of recurrence of functional constipation (FC) with conventional treatment. These data, confirmed in the international literature, led them to develop a new therapeutic approach. The aim of this study was to achieve intestinal control and avoid recurrence of FC in(More)
METHODS From 1983 to 1996, 31 children with caustic esophageal strictures were seen at Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital; they were all treated conservatively except for two cases complicated by tracheoesophageal fistula. The remaining 29 patients were divided into three groups depending on the treatment, which was modified over the years. Group A (1983 to(More)
PURPOSE Neurologically impaired children (NIC) often have swallowing difficulties, severe gastroesophageal reflux, recurrent respiratory infections, and malnutrition. Bianchi proposed esophagogastric dissociation (EGD) as an alternative to fundoplication and gastrostomy. The authors compared these 2 approaches. METHODS Twenty-nine consecutive symptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is very common in patients with chronic lung diseases. We evaluated the incidence of GERD in young patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and defined the characteristics of gastroesophageal reflux episodes analyzed by pH-multichannel intraluminal impedance (pH-MII) and esophagogastric scintigraphy. PATIENTS(More)
PURPOSE To assess the accuracy of dynamic magnetic resonance (MR) cholangiopancreatography after secretin administration in detecting pancreatic duct abnormalities typical of early-onset idiopathic chronic pancreatitis in children with recurrent episodes of idiopathic acute pancreatitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen children (mean age, 11.3 years; range,(More)
BACKGROUND Esophageal atresia (EA) is one of the most common congenital digestive anomalies. With improvements in surgical techniques and intensive care treatments, the focus of care of these patients has shifted from mortality to morbidity and quality-of-life issues. These children face gastrointestinal (GI) problems not only in early childhood but also(More)
Background: It is difficult to give guidelines when approaching gastroesophageal disease in neurologically impaired children. Indication for surgery has been increasing over recent years, but there is no consensus on the surgical technique of choice. Nothing has been written specifically comparing the results of different procedures in these patients, so(More)
