Italian survey on general pediatricians’ approach to children with gastroesophageal reflux symptoms
TLDR
Most Italian general pediatricians do not seem to follow the recommendations of the 2009 NASPGHan-ESPGHAN reflux guidelines and often prescribe PPIs despite a lack of efficacy for the symptoms being treated, placing undue burden on both families and national health system. Expand
European Pediatricians’ Approach to Children With GER Symptoms: Survey of the Implementation of 2009 NASPGHAN-ESPGHAN Guidelines
TLDR
The overall results of the survey show that the majority of pediatricians are unaware of 2009 North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition reflux guidelines and often prescribe PPIs despite a lack of efficacy for the symptoms being treated. Expand
Prevalence and management of gastroesophageal reflux disease in children and adolescents: a nationwide cross-sectional observational study
TLDR
Ten percent of French children and adolescents show GOR symptoms and 6 % have GORD, but those with GORD are more likely to require pharmacological treatment. Expand
Pediatric Gastroesophageal Reflux Clinical Practice Guidelines: Joint Recommendations of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) and the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (ESPGHAN)
TLDR
The document provides evidence-based guidelines for the diagnosis and management of gastroesophageal reflux and gastroeastern reflux disease in the pediatric population and is intended for use in daily practice for the development of future clinical practice guidelines and as a basis for clinical trials. Expand
Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice Styles of North American Pediatricians Regarding Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
TLDR
Pediatric providers appear to frequently order diagnostic testing and treatment for GERD, yet knowledge about evidence-based GERD management among this random sample appeared limited, and a significant number of providers were not aware of different guideline publications. Expand
A Global, Evidence-Based Consensus on the Definition of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease in the Pediatric Population
TLDR
The consensus statements that comprise the Definition of GERD in the Pediatric Population were developed through a rigorous process and are intended to be used for the development of future clinical practice guidelines and as a basis for clinical trials. Expand
Are We Overprescribing Antireflux Medications for Infants With Regurgitation?
TLDR
The majority of infants who were prescribed antireflux drugs did not meet diagnostic criteria for gastroesophageal reflux disease andontinuation of medication did not result in worsening of symptoms in most infants with normal pH studies. Expand
Proton Pump Inhibitor Utilization Patterns in Infants
TLDR
Examination of PPI use in the study population increased steadily from 1999 to 2004, and data offer valuable information on current PPI dosing patterns that may be used to design future clinical trials for assessment of gastroesophageal reflux disease regimens and clinical outcomes in the infant population. Expand
Therapy With Gastric Acidity Inhibitors Increases the Risk of Acute Gastroenteritis and Community-Acquired Pneumonia in Children
TLDR
This is the first prospective study performed in pediatric patients showing that the use of GA inhibitors was associated with an increased risk of acute gastroenteritis and community-acquired pneumonia in GERD-affected children. Expand
Infants and proton pump inhibitors: tribulations, no trials.
TLDR
Barron et al point out that their study did not evaluate the clinical effectiveness of PPI treatment, and that it is possible that that PPI use did not improve symptoms in these infants, but they also attempt to justify the high use of these drugs. Expand
