  • An in-depth characterization of a large cohort of adult patients with eosinophilic esophagitis. [Journal Article]
    Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2019 01; 122(1):65-72.e1.Leigh LY, Spergel JM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our adult cohort of manually verified, biopsy-proven EoE had an increased risk of pollen food allergy syndrome, anaphylaxis, and comorbid autoimmune and psychiatric conditions compared with the University of Pennsylvania Health Systems population. There was also an increased prevalence of impaction and stricture or fibrosis requiring endoscopic intervention compared with the pediatric population.
    Arq Gastroenterol. 2018 Jan-Mar; 55(1):41-45.Vieira J, Nunes G, … Fonseca J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Changes in serum electrolytes of patients undergoing PEG were very common. More than half showed at least one abnormality, at the time of the procedure. The most frequent was hyponatremia, which was associated with significantly shorter survival, probably reflecting severe systemic metabolic distress.
  • Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders Pathology. [Review]
    Front Med (Lausanne). 2017; 4:261.Collins MH, Capocelli K, Yang GY
  • Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGID) are characterized pathologically by excess eosinophils in mucosal biopsies of one or multiple sites in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, simultaneously or sequentially. Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is the best characterized EGID, and in most patients it is an abnormal immune-mediated response to food antigens. Current recommendations for diagnosis i…
  • New insights into the pathophysiology of achalasia and implications for future treatment. [Review]
    World J Gastroenterol. 2016 Sep 21; 22(35):7892-907.Furuzawa-Carballeda J, Torres-Landa S, … Torres-Villalobos G
  • Idiopathic achalasia is an archetype esophageal motor disorder, causing significant impairment of eating ability and reducing quality of life. The pathophysiological underpinnings of this condition are loss of esophageal peristalsis and insufficient relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The clinical manifestations include dysphagia for both solids and liquids, regurgitation of esoph…
  • Anti-MuSK Antibody-positive Myasthenia Gravis Mimicking Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. [Case Reports]
    Intern Med. 2015; 54(19):2497-501.Furuta N, Ishizawa K, … Ikeda Y
  • We herein investigated the clinical features of three patients with anti-muscle-specific tyrosine kinase (MuSK) antibody-positive myasthenia gravis (MG), which was initially difficult to distinguish from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The patients exhibited dropped head syndrome or dysphagia as initial symptoms. Although their clinical findings were compatible with the revised El Escorial C…
  • Feeding impairments associated with plasma sterols in Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome. [Journal Article]
    J Pediatr. 2014 Oct; 165(4):836-41.e1.Merkens MJ, Sinden NL, … Steiner RD
  • CONCLUSIONS: Feeding impairment is common and complex in patients with SLOS. Our findings confirm that oral sensitivities, adverse feeding behaviors, and risk of oral phase dysphagia are amenable to quantitative evaluation and analysis. Feeding difficulties in children with SLOS are correlated with plasma sterol concentrations, suggesting a link between the biochemical severity of SLOS and feeding function. These findings expand the behavioral phenotype of SLOS and begin to provide insight into the biological causes of feeding difficulties.
  • Infective endocarditis initially presenting with a dermatomyositis-like syndrome. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2014 Jan 10; 2014Ojeda J, López-López L, … Vilá LM
  • Infective endocarditis (IE) may present with rheumatological manifestations such as myalgias, arthralgias, arthritis and back pain. However, muscle inflammation is rare. We present a case of a 68-year-old Hispanic man who presented with 1-month history of tiredness, weight loss, fever, myalgias, muscle weakness and dysphagia to solid food. On physical examination he had severe weakness in the pro…
  • Surgical strategy for Kommerell's diverticulum: total arch replacement. [Journal Article]
    J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 2014 Oct; 148(4):1423-7.Tsukui H, Aomi S, Yamazaki K
  • CONCLUSIONS: TAR is a reasonable surgical technique for Kommerell's diverticulum, because it enables the vascular ring to be completely released, preventing recurrence, rupture, and dissection. Anatomic reconstruction of the SCA was effective to prevent hand ischemia and subclavian steal syndrome.
  • Hybrid treatment in a patient with acute aortic syndrome and an aberrant right subclavian artery. [Case Reports]
    Vasc Endovascular Surg. 2013 Nov; 47(8):645-7.Folkmann S, Waldenberger F, … Grabenwoeger M
  • A 57-year-old man was admitted to our department with recent onset of chest pain. Computed tomography (CT) scans revealed an acute aortic syndrome manifested by a penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer and contained rupture at the level of origin of an aberrant right subclavian artery. A combined vascular and endovascular approach was selected. The entire arch was rerouted, a reversed bifurcated Dacro…
  • Neural correlates of recovery from Foix-Chavany-Marie syndrome. [Case Reports]
    J Neurol. 2013 Feb; 260(2):415-20.Theys T, Van Cauter S, … van Loon J
  • Cerebral reorganization during recovery after stroke has been investigated using functional imaging in patients with subcortical motor stroke. The functional correlates of recovery from anarthria, however, are yet unknown. A 48-year-old male patient recovering from complete anarthria after unilateral right-sided subcortical hemorrhagic stroke is described. The main outcome measures included clini…
  • Inflammatory myopathies with anti-Ku antibodies: a prognosis dependent on associated lung disease. [Journal Article]
    Medicine (Baltimore). 2012 Mar; 91(2):95-102.Rigolet A, Musset L, … Benveniste O
  • Anti-Ku antibodies have been reported in a wide spectrum of autoimmune diseases, sometimes in association with inflammatory myopathies (IM). We studied the clinical, laboratory, and muscle histologic features of all anti-Ku-positive patients detected in our hospital during the last 10 years, as well as their treatment and outcomes. Anti-Ku antibodies were found in 34 patients (0.46% of 20,600 ser…
