We conducted a pH-monitoring study to determine the prevalence of pathologic gastroesophageal reflux (GER+) and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR+) in patients with resected benign true vocal fold lesions (TVFLs) and positive reflux finding score (RFS). We compared our findings with those of patients with typical GER disease (GERD) symptoms and normal laryngoscopy. In the group of patients with TVFLs, we compared the pH-monitoring findings of smokers with those of non-smokers. Seventy-two [females… 
Association between gastroesophageal reflux disease and vocal fold polyps
TLDR
Pepsin may promote the aggregation of immune cells, increase the local cytokines, and promote inflammatory reaction, suggesting a potential new pathogenesis for VFP.
Impact of laryngopharyngeal and gastroesophageal reflux on asthma control in children.
TLDR
The reflux symptom score and LPR disease index do not seem reliable to diagnose laryngopharyngeal reflux and GER in children with asthma and vocal nodule seems to be a valuable sign to evaluate LPR in asthmatic children.

TLDR
Pepsin immunohistochemical analysis of polyp biopsy samples appears to be a more sensitive and effective test for diagnosing laryngopharyngeal reflux than the reflux symptom index, the reflex finding score, and 24-hour pH monitoring in a clinical setting.
Study of The Role of Human Papilloma Virus and Laryngopharyngeal Reflux in Adult Vocal Fold Polyps
TLDR
Both laryngopharyngeal reflux and human papilloma virus play important associated roles in the development of vocal fold polyps in adults.
The Hellenic Voice Handicap Index of Different Laryngeal Mass Lesions: A Receiver-Operating Characteristic Analysis.
TLDR
The calculated cut-off points further guide clinicians toward applying a needed interventional method/therapy even in the cases where the condition of a person could not be easily estimated.
Detecting Laryngopharyngeal Reflux by Immunohistochemistry of Pepsin in the Biopsies of Vocal Fold Leukoplakia.
TLDR
It is suggested that pepsin immunohistochemical staining could be a biomarker of LPR and that LPR may be a risk factor for the development of vocal fold leukoplakia.
Local steroid injection via the cricothyroid membrane in patients with a vocal nodule.
TLDR
A local steroid injection via the cricothyroid membrane is a useful and safe treatment option for vocal nodules, however, nodules can recur unless the voice use pattern changes.
Association Between Laryngopharyngeal Reflux and Benign Lesions of the Vocal Folds
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the current knowledge about the association between LPR and the development of benign lesions of the vocal folds.
Association of pepsin and DNA damage in laryngopharyngeal reflux-related vocal fold polyps.
TLDR
Patients with VFPs have higher levels of oxidative DNA damage in the presence of pepsin reflux, and Pepsin may induceDNA damage in laryngeal epithelial cells and participate in the pathogenesis of V FPs.
Comparison of the effects of esomeprazole plus mosapride citrate and botulinum toxin A on vocal process granuloma.
TLDR
Combined proton pump inhibitor plus prokinetic drug therapy plays a significant role in the treatment of vocal process granulomas or after surgery.

In patients with signs and symptoms of laryngeal disorders, laryngoscopic examination and ambulatory pH monitoring often implicate gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Experimental evidence
The influence of laryngopharyngeal reflux in the healing of laryngeal trauma
TLDR
It is concluded that LPR influences epithelization and recurrence of laryngeal polyps or Reinke edema in vocal cords, after partial or total decortication, and surgical outcome is superior in patients with LPR with preoperative and postoperative anti-reflux treatment.
Laryngopharyngeal reflux in patients with symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
TLDR
There is a high incidence of LPR in patients with GERD but its significance for laryngeal symptoms is tenuous, and fixed distance dual probe pH monitoring allows documentation of conventional esophageal reflux and LPR.
Are There Specific Laryngeal Signs for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease?

  • Medicine
    The American Journal of Gastroenterology
  • 2007
TLDR
The authors evaluated the prevalence of laryngeal findings in 132 patients who had esophageal mucosal injury and compared the findings with 132 ageand gender-matched controls without GERD, and found at least one tissue irritation sign in 85% of the study population, suggesting that laryngoscopy suffers from low specificity in identifying GERD as the cause of l throat symptoms.
Limited Diagnostic Value of Laryngopharyngeal Lesions in Patients with Gastroesophageal Reflux During Routine Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
TLDR
This study is the first large systematic investigation of GERD patients for the presence and prevalence of laryngopharyngeal findings attributed to gastroesophageal reflux, and challenges the published diagnostic specificity of typical GERD signs in the larygeal region.

TLDR
The prevalence of pharyngeal acid reflux events was significantly higher in patients with isolated PL compared to patients with other isolated otolaryngologic disorders and in controls, and the prevalence of PAR in isolated otoliangologic Disorders other than PL is similar to that in healthy controls.

TLDR
Proton-pump inhibitors are the preferred drugs for managing patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux and the best control can be achieved by prescribing high doses, twice a day.
Acid reflux management: ENT perspective.
TLDR
It can be concluded that voice change, sore throat, globus and cough choking are the most reliable symptoms of laryngopharyngeal reflux and Flexible oesophago-gastroscopy (FOG) is a simple, safe and reliable way of assessment in these cases and treatment with PPI can be effective in the majority of patients.
Pharyngeal acid reflux events in patients with vocal cord nodules
TLDR
Prevalence of pharyngeal acid reflux events is significantly higher in patients with vocal cord nodules compared with normal controls and suggests a contributory role for gastroesophagopharyngeaal acidReflux in the pathogenesis of some vocal cords nodules.
