Predictors of Outcome in an Open Label, Therapeutic Trial of High-Dose Omeprazole in Laryngitis
BACKGROUND:Gastroesophageal reflux is implicated in some cases of laryngitis. There are no established predictors of response to acid suppression therapy in suspected reflux laryngitis.AIM:In aExpand

Twenty‐four hour spatiotemporal mapping of colonic propagating sequences provides pathophysiological insight into constipation
Abstract  Colonic propagating sequences (PS)s are a major determinant of luminal propulsion. A global appreciation of spatiotemporal patterning of PSs requires evaluation of 24 h pan‐colonicExpand

Proximal colonic propagating pressure waves sequences and their relationship with movements of content in the proximal human colon
Abstract  Abnormal colonic motor patterns have been implicated in the pathogenesis of severe constipation. Yet in health, the mechanical link between movement of colonic content and regionalExpand

Treatment Efficacy of Sacral Nerve Stimulation in Slow Transit Constipation: A Two-Phase, Double-Blind Randomized Controlled Crossover Study
Objectives:Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is a potential treatment for constipation refractory to standard therapies. However, there have been no randomized controlled studies examining its efficacy.Expand

In-vivo demonstration of a high resolution optical fiber manometry catheter for diagnosis of gastrointestinal motility disorders.
Fiber optic catheters for the diagnosis of gastrointestinal motility disorders are demonstrated in-vitro and in-vivo. Single element catheters have been verified against existing solid stateExpand

Persistent dysphagia after head and neck radiotherapy: a common and under-reported complication with significant effect on non-cancer-related mortality.
AIMS Dysphagia is a well-recognised acute complication after radiotherapy. However, knowledge about the long-term prevalence and effect remains limited. The aims of this study were to determine theExpand

Pancolonic motor response to subsensory and suprasensory sacral nerve stimulation in patients with slow‐transit constipation
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is emerging as a potential treatment for patients with constipation. Although SNS can elicit an increase in colonic propagating sequences (PSs), the optimal stimulusExpand

Impact of a Laryngectomy and Surgical Closure Technique on Swallow Biomechanics and Dysphagia Severity
Objective. The incidence of self-reported dysphagia following a laryngectomy is high (72%). The impact, if any, of a surgical closure technique on swallowing biomechanics and dysphagia severity isExpand

Bowel preparation affects the amplitude and spatiotemporal organization of colonic propagating sequences
Background  Colonic manometry is performed using either colonoscopically assisted catheter placement, after bowel preparation, or nasocolonic intubation of the unprepared bowel. There has been littleExpand

A fibre optic catheter for simultaneous measurement of longitudinal and circumferential muscular activity in the gastrointestinal tract.
Diagnostic catheters based on fibre Bragg gratings (FBG's) are proving to be highly effective for measurement of the muscular activity associated with motility in the human gut. While the primaryExpand
