Background: Rumination syndrome is a condition that occurs when people constantly regurgitate and expel or reswallow food soon after they eat. The most severe cases of rumination syndrome can be debilitating, requiring total parenteral nutrition or enteral tube feedings. We report our experience with the treatment of children with severe rumination syndrome. Patients and Methods: Five patients with severe rumination syndrome received a novel inpatient interdisciplinary approach, which involved… Expand
Adolescent Rumination Syndrome
TLDR
Treatment of Adolescent rumination syndrome requires a multidisciplinary approach that includes both medical management of symptoms and implementation of strategies that address behavioral, psychological, and general quality-of-life components of the disorder. Expand
Rumination syndrome: pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment
Rumination syndrome is a functional gastrointestinal disorder characterized by effortless and repetitive regurgitation of recently ingested food from the stomach to the oral cavity followed by eitherExpand
Diagnosis and Treatment of Rumination Syndrome: A Critical Review
TLDR
Clinicians are recommended to recognize the heterogeneous features of RS when considering diagnosis, assess for RS symptoms by clinical history, and treat RS with targeted diaphragmatic breathing while using other methods as augmented intervention or alternative treatment. Expand
Chronic vomiting in children: A prospective study reveals rumination syndrome is an important etiology that is underdiagnosed and untreated
TLDR
The diagnosis of rumination syndrome is delayed and these children are often inappropriately treated, and therapy in the form of diaphragmatic breathing has a good success rate. Expand
Novel association of rectal evacuation disorder and rumination syndrome: Diagnosis, comorbidities, and treatment
TLDR
Awareness of concomitant rectal evacuation disorder and rumination syndrome and prompt identification of psychological comorbidity are keys to instituting behavioural and psychological methods to avoid unnecessary treatment. Expand
What is pica and rumination disorder? Diagnosis and treatment approaches (tur)
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria, clinical features and treatment options for pica and rumination disorder are summarized, based on recent research. Expand
Rumination Syndrome in Children Presenting with Refractory Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Symptoms.
TLDR
Children with rumination syndrome have a distinct pattern of impedance-pH monitoring and can be distinguished amongst children presenting with refractory GERD, according to a highly positive symptom-reflux association analysis. Expand
A review of psychological treatments for vomiting associated with paediatric functional gastrointestinal disorders.
TLDR
Increased evidence is demonstrating value and efficacy of incorporating psychogastroenterology practices into ongoing treatment plans for digestive conditions, and psychological treatments have not been shown to be helpful during an acute vomiting episode. Expand
Rumination syndrome in children and adolescents: a school survey assessing prevalence and symptomatology
TLDR
RS was reasonably common in this cohort of school-aged children and adolescents in Sri Lanka, however, symptoms were severe enough to affect schooling only in 12% of affected children. Expand
Objectively diagnosing rumination syndrome in children using esophageal pH‐impedance and manometry
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine diagnostic ambulatory pH‐MII and manometry criteria for rumination syndrome in children and to propose objective pH‐impedance (pH‐M II) and manometer criteria for adults. Expand

Rumination syndrome in adolescents.
TLDR
Rumination is a distinct functional gastrointestinal disorder of otherwise healthy children and adolescents, which can be diagnosed on the basis of clinical features and shows a characteristic pattern and rules out motility disorders that are often confused with rumination. Expand
Behavioral Treatment of Habitual Rumination: Case Reports
TLDR
Retrospective medical chart review provided support for multidisciplinary treatment strategies with an emphasis on behavioral techniques (i.e., biofeedback, relaxation techniques, diaphragmatic breathing, and/ or cognitive behavior therapy). Expand
Rumination syndrome in children and adolescents: diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
TLDR
Recognition of the clinical features of rumination syndrome in children and adolescents is essential; the diagnosis is often delayed and associated with morbidity. Expand
The rumination syndrome: clinical features rather than manometric diagnosis.
TLDR
The rumination syndrome is underdiagnosed with typical clinical features, gastroduodenal manometry seems unnecessary to confirm the diagnosis. Expand
Habitual rumination: a benign disorder.
TLDR
Nine patients who habitually ruminated after meals underwent clinical tests and psychological questioning, and most patients responded to reassurance that the habit was harmless. Expand
The Rumination Syndrome (Clinical and Manometric Profile, Therapy, and Long-Term Outcome)
TLDR
The results indicate that ruminationsyndrome is often confused with a gastric motilitydisorder and diagnosis is possible if one is aware of this condition, and reassurance and education of the patient and the family are crucial first steps followed by behavioral and relaxation programs. Expand
Rumination, heartburn, and daytime gastroesophageal reflux. A case study with mechanisms defined and successfully treated with biofeedback therapy.
TLDR
Biofeedback therapy directed at relaxing the abdominal muscles during eating and avoiding the pharyngeal maneuver resulted in a decrease in reflux and marked improvement in symptoms. Expand
The rumination syndrome in adults. A characteristic manometric pattern.
TLDR
The rumination syndrome should be considered in adult patients with long-standing postprandial vomiting, including six patients whose scores on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory for hypochondriasis and depression were significantly above the reference population. Expand
Case study: chewing gum treatment of rumination in an adolescent with an eating disorder.
TLDR
Successful treatment of rumination in a 16-year-old female adolescent using postmeal chewing gum is described, suggesting rumination should be considered in youngsters with bulimia or anorexia nervosa. Expand
Childhood functional gastrointestinal disorders: child/adolescent.
TLDR
The Rome III child and adolescent criteria represent an evolution from Rome II and should prove useful for both clinicians and researchers dealing with childhood FGIDs. Expand
