  • Presentation and diagnosis of ureteral quadruplication: case report and analysis of the literature. [Journal Article]
    Urology. 2020 Jul 07 [Online ahead of print]Wang LL, Beavers AJ, Makari JH
  • Ureteral quadruplication is exceedingly rare. All except for two cases were symptomatic and nearly all underwent intervention. We present the first case of asymptomatic ureteral quadruplication in the presence of ureteral cyst. The report is first to prove ureteral quadruplication, even with ureteral cyst, can have normal renal function and parenchyma without obstruction or reflux. The report ana…
  • Postoperative Gastrointestinal Complaints After Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication. [Journal Article]
    Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech. 2020 Jul 08 [Online ahead of print]Makal GB, Türkçapar AG
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study in which postoperative reflux-related and nonspecific gastrointestinal complaints are analyzed together for a long follow-up period. We found a significant decrease in many reflux-related and nonspecific symptoms. Although some disturbing complaints like inability to belch, early satiety, and flatulence emerged, the preference for surgery did not change.
  • Esophageal physiology-an overview of esophageal disorders from a pathophysiological point of view. [Review]
    Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2020 Jul 10 [Online ahead of print]Lottrup C, Khan A, … Clarke JO
  • The esophagus serves the principal purpose of transporting food from the pharynx into the stomach. A complex interplay between nerves and muscle fibers ensures that swallowing takes place as a finely coordinated event. Esophageal function can be tested by a variety of methods, endoscopy, manometry, and reflux monitoring being some of the most important. Regarding pathophysiology, motor disorders,…
  • Risk factors for digestive morbidities after esophageal atresia repair. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Pediatr. 2020 Jul 09 [Online ahead of print]Lu YH, Yen TA, … Chou HC
  • CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of postoperative GERD and esophageal stricture was 67.2% and 37.9%, respectively. The risk factors for postoperative esophageal stricture were long-gap EA/TEF and postoperative GERD. What is Known: • EA/TEF is a congenital digestive tract anomaly with a high postoperative survival rate but can be complicated by many long-term morbidities. What is New: • Long-gap EA/TEF and postoperative GERD are risk factors of anastomotic stricture after repair. • Surgeons and pediatricians should be highly experienced in managing anastomotic tension and the GERD.
  • StatPearls: Esophageal Manometry [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Baldwin Dustin D University of Illinois, Chicago Puckett Yana Y Texas Tech Un Health Sciences Center BOOK
  • The esophagus is a muscular tube that begins at the hypopharynx and ends at the stomach. The primary role of the esophagus is to transfer solids and liquids into the stomach. There is intricate coordination of esophageal striated and smooth muscles allowing food bolus propagation. Problems arise when patients have difficulty swallowing or reflux of gastric contents. When abnormalities of the esop…
  • StatPearls: Percutaneous Gastrostomy And Jejunostomy [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Hitawala Asif A. AA Cleveland Clinic Foundation Mousa Omar Y. OY Mayo Clinic BOOK
  • Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) and percutaneous endoscopic gastro-jejunal (PEG-J) tubes are common procedures in the management of patients who require long-term nutritional support. They serve as alternatives to enteral feeding and laparotomy-guided placement of feeding tubes. PEG tube placement was first introduced in 1980 and has a success rate of more than 95%. Patients typically r…
  • StatPearls: Sandifer Syndrome [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Patil Sowmya S University Of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Arkansas Childrens Hospital Tas Vildan V University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences BOOK
  • Sandifer syndrome (SS) is a type of movement disorder that constitutes paroxysmal spasms of head, neck, and back arching but spares the limbs. SS is often associated with gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) in children. Due to the abnormal posturing, parents may describe the dystonic episodes of SS as possible seizures. Therefore this causes great concern among parents and poses a diagnostic dilemma t…
  • Biomarkers in vesicoureteral reflux: an overview. [Journal Article]
    Biomark Med. 2020 Jul 09 [Online ahead of print]Valério FC, Lemos RD, … Silva ACE
  • Aim: This article aimed to review the role of cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and cellular adhesion molecules as biomarkers for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and reflux nephropathy (RN). Methods: We reviewed articles from 1979 onward by searching PubMed and Scopus utilizing the combination of words: 'VUR' or 'RN' and each one of the biomarkers. Results: Genetic, inflammatory, fibrogenic, e…
  • Distress in Infants and Young Children: Don't Blame Acid Reflux. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr. 2020 Jul 06 [Online ahead of print]Salvatore S, Pagliarin F, … Vandenplas Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: No difference in infant distress noted between proximal and distal GER. Non-acid reflux is perceived at least as painful than acid GER. Our results stress that acid inhibitors should not be started in infants presenting distress unless a clear association with acid GER is demonstrated.
  • 12q21 deletion syndrome: Narrowing the critical region down to 1.6 Mb including SYT1 and PPP1R12A. [Case Reports]
    Am J Med Genet A. 2020 Jul 06 [Online ahead of print]Niclass T, Le Guyader G, … Egloff M
  • Deletions in the 12q21 region are rare and non-recurrent CNVs. To date, only 11 patients with deletions in this region have been reported in the literature. These patients most often presented with syndromic intellectual deficiency, ventriculomegaly or hydrocephalus, ectodermal abnormalities, growth retardation and renal and cardiac malformations, suggesting a recognizable microdeletion syndrome.…
