- Treatment of supragastric belching with cognitive behavioral therapy improves quality of life and reduces acid gastroesophageal reflux. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Gastroenterol 2018 Feb 20
- CONCLUSIONS: Cognitive behavioral therapy reduced the number of SGB and improved social and daily activities. Careful analysis of MII-pH allows identification of a subgroup of GERD patients with acid reflux predominantly driven by SGB. In these patients, CBT can reduce esophageal acid exposure.Am J Gastroenterol advance online publication, 20 February 2018; doi:10.1038/ajg.2018.15.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease is an autoimmune entity with multisystem involvement. F-FDG PET/CT can provide important information about disease extent and severity and also aid in treatment response evaluation. We report a case of a 57-year-old woman presenting with abdominal discomfort, belching, and loss of weight in whomF-FDG PET/CT provided valuable information in diagnosis and monitoring treatment response.
- [Clinical trial of gastroesophageal reflux disease with the disharmony between liver and stomach syndrome treated with acupuncture regulatingqibased on the compatibility of the five meridians]. [Journal Article]
- ZZZhongguo Zhen Jiu 2017 Dec 12; 37(12):1255-60
- CONCLUSIONS: Acupuncture regulatingqibased on compatibility of the five meridians can effectively improve clinical symptoms and inflammation under gastroscope for gastroesophageal reflux disease with the disharmony between liver and stomach. This treatment has a longer curative effect and a greater alleviation of belching.
- Uninvestigated dyspepsia and associated factors of patients with gastrointestinal disorders in Dessie Referral Hospital, Northeast Ethiopia. [Journal Article]
- BGBMC Gastroenterol 2018 Jan 18; 18(1):13
- CONCLUSIONS: UD is highly prevalent among adults with gastrointestinal complaints. H. pylori infection is significantly associated with UD and correlates with its symptoms. Individuals with epigastric pain/burning, early satiation and belching should be primary focus of H. pylori infection diagnosis and treatment. The role of consumption of tea, raw fruits and vegetables on dyspepsia needs further large scale study.

Supragastric belching is the most important factor in the etiology of excessive belching complaints. Supragastric belching is a belching disorder with a behavioral origin. The standard diagnosis is made by monitoring the esophageal impedance. Supragastric belching has been shown to be associated with globus, as well as reflux symptoms in proton pump inhibitor non-responders in gastroesophageal reflux disease; however, the pathophysiology of supragastric belching in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease or functional dyspepsia has not been clarified. Patient education with behavioral therapy is the treatment of choice in isolated supragastric belching. On the other hand, the best management of supragastric belching associated with globus, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and dyspepsia remains to be studied.

Excessive supragastric belching is rarely described in the anesthesia literature. Anesthesia planning of a 26-year-old patient with excessive supragastric belching, history of superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS), and dental anxiety requires preoperative assessment. This case report outlines the anesthetic considerations and the management to facilitate comprehensive dentistry. Key anesthetic considerations include anxiolysis, aspiration risk reduction, total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA), and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) prophylaxis.
- Patients with symptoms of delayed gastric emptying have a high prevalence of oesophageal dysmotility, irrespective of scintigraphic evidence of gastroparesis. [Journal Article]
- BOBMJ Open Gastroenterol 2017; 4(1):e000169
- CONCLUSIONS: Irrespective of gastric emptying delay by scintigraphy, patients with symptoms suggestive of gastric neuromuscular dysfunction have a high prevalence of oesophageal motor disorder and pathological oesophageal acid exposure that may contribute to their symptoms and may require therapy. High-resolution oesophageal manometry and pH monitoring are non-invasive and potentially useful in the assessment and management of these patients.

- Diaphragmatic Breathing Reduces Belching and Proton Pump Inhibitor Refractory Gastroesophageal Reflux Symptoms. [Journal Article]
- CGClin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018; 16(3):407-416.e2
- CONCLUSIONS: In a prospective study, we found a standardized protocol for diaphragmatic breathing to reduce belching and PPI-refractory gastroesophageal reflux symptoms, and increase QoL in patients with PPI-refractory GERD with belching-especially those with excessive SGB.
