Symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux as a risk factor for esophageal adenocarcinoma. (1/293)

BACKGROUND: The causes of adenocarcinomas of the esophagus and gastric cardia are poorly understood. We conducted an epidemiologic investigation of the possible association between gastroesophageal reflux and these tumors. METHODS: We performed a nationwide, population-based, case-control study in Sweden. Case ascertainment was rapid, and all cases were classified uniformly. Information on the subjects' history of gastroesophageal reflux was collected in personal interviews. The odds ratios were calculated by logistic regression, with multivariate adjustment for potentially confounding variables. RESULTS: Of the patients interviewed, the 189 with esophageal adenocarcinoma and the 262 with adenocarcinoma of the cardia constituted 85 percent of the 529 patients in Sweden who were eligible for the study during the period from 1995 through 1997. For comparison, we interviewed 820 control subjects from the general population and 167 patients with esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma. Among persons with recurrent symptoms of reflux, as compared with persons without such symptoms, the odds ratios were 7.7 (95 percent confidence interval, 5.3 to 11.4) for esophageal adenocarcinoma and 2.0 (95 percent confidence interval, 1.4 to 2.9) for adenocarcinoma of the cardia. The more frequent, more severe, and longer-lasting the symptoms of reflux, the greater the risk. Among persons with long-standing and severe symptoms of reflux, the odds ratios were 43.5 (95 percent confidence interval, 18.3 to 103.5) for esophageal adenocarcinoma and 4.4 (95 percent confidence interval, 1.7 to 11.0) for adenocarcinoma of the cardia. The risk of esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma was not associated with reflux (odds ratio, 1.1; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.7 to 1.9). CONCLUSIONS: There is a strong and probably causal relation between gastroesophageal reflux and esophageal adenocarcinoma. The relation between reflux and adenocarcinoma of the gastric cardia is relatively weak.  (+info)

Evaluating gastric cancer misclassification: a potential explanation for the rise in cardia cancer incidence. (2/293)

BACKGROUND: Reports of dramatic increases in gastric cardia cancer incidence warrant concern. However, the recent introduction of a separate diagnostic code, the lack of a consensus definition of the cardia area, and the accelerating interest in cardia cancer may affect classification practices. Little is known about the magnitude of cardia cancer misclassification in large cancer registries. METHODS: In a well-defined Swedish population (1.3 million), we uniformly classified all patients with newly diagnosed gastric adenocarcinoma (from 1989 through 1994) with respect to gastric subsite, and we used this patient group as our gold standard. We then evaluated the completeness of the Swedish Cancer Registry in registering gastric adenocarcinomas against this gold standard and, further, assessed the completeness of cardia cancer registration and the rate of falsely included cases to estimate the potential impact on observed incidence trends. RESULTS: Our gold standard contained 1337 case subjects with gastric adenocarcinoma. Overall, the Swedish Cancer Registry was 98% complete with regard to gastric adenocarcinomas and had a 4% rate of falsely included cases. The completeness of coding cardia cancer was only 69%, and the positive predictive value for cardia cancer was 82%, with no improvement over time. CONCLUSIONS: Although overall completeness of gastric cancer registration by the Swedish Cancer Registry was excellent, accuracy in registering cardia tumors was surprisingly low. Our estimates suggest that true cardia cancer incidence could be up to 45% higher or 15% lower than that reported in the Cancer Registry. This margin of error could accommodate the observed increase in cardia cancer in Sweden. Therefore, secular trends in cardia cancer incidence should be interpreted cautiously.  (+info)

Mortality trend from cancer of the gastric cardia in The Netherlands, 1969-1994. (3/293)

BACKGROUND: Time trends of cancer of the gastric cardia differ between populations and the reasons are not fully understood. The object of this study was to investigate the occurrence of cancer of the gastric cardia in descriptive relation to age at death, calendar period, birth cohort and gender in the Netherlands between 1969 and 1994. METHODS: Data on the number of people with cancer of the gastric cardia as the underlying cause of death from 1969 to 1994 were obtained from annual publications by the National Causes of Death Registry of Statistics Netherlands. To estimate the separate effects of age, calendar period and birth cohort on the trend in mortality, a simultaneous analysis of these factors was performed using a log-linear Poisson model. RESULTS: In 1969, the mortality rates from cancer of the gastric cardia for males and females per 100,000 people were 2.1 and 1.1; in 1994 the mortality rates were 1.5 and 0.7, respectively. Examination of the time trend suggested that mortality for cancer of the gastric cardia may reflect a period phenomenon, although a cohort effect may have also contributed to the observed time trend. Furthermore, more males than females died from cancer of the gastric cardia. The difference was most striking in the younger age categories. CONCLUSION: In this Dutch population, the age-period-cohort-gender analysis indicated that the mortality rates decreased after the period 1975-1979 which might be explained by a decrease in exposure to risk factor(s) or an increase in exposure to protective factor(s).  (+info)

Expression of nm23 in the primary tumor and the metastatic regional lymph nodes of patients with gastric cardiac cancer. (4/293)

Tumor recurrence and distant metastasis are major causes of treatment failure in gastric cardiac cancer (GCC). Rapid growth of tumor cells and reduced expression of nm23, a metastatic suppressor gene, in tumor cells have been suggested as two important mechanisms for disease progression of GCC. Therefore, to determine the prognostic value of nm23 expression in GCC, we used immunohistochemistry to examine the expression of nm23 in the pathological sections of both gastric cancer and metastatic lymph nodes from 24 stage III patients. Twenty-two patients had total gastrectomy, and two patients had proximal subtotal gastrectomy with a D2 dissection. Postoperative adjuvant therapy was provided, and the clinical responses were followed routinely. Clinical correlation was evaluated by chi2 with Fisher's exact test and survival by log-rank test. Our results show that the reduced nm23 expression in the primary tumor and in the nodal metastasis is the most useful marker for the poor prognosis of GCC following surgery.  (+info)

Inflammation of the gastro-oesophageal junction (carditis) in patients with symptomatic gastro-oesophageal reflux disease: a prospective study. (5/293)

BACKGROUND: Recent data have suggested that cardia biopsy specimens may be more reflective of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) than squamous biopsy specimens. AIMS: To assess the distribution, severity, and types of mucosal injury in GORD. PATIENTS: Thirty patients with symptomatic GORD with no or minimal erosions. METHODS: Biopsies were performed at the squamocolumnar junction (Z-line) and 1-2 cm below the Z-line. Injury to the columnar mucosa was scored for inflammatory cells, epithelial cell abnormalities, and for the presence of intestinal metaplasia and Helicobacter pylori. A carditis score above 2 was considered positive (maximum score = 9). RESULTS: Mean carditis scores and percentages of patients with a positive carditis score were higher in Z-line biopsy specimens containing both squamous and columnar mucosa than in those with just columnar mucosa or in specimens taken 1-2 cm below the Z-line. Carditis at the Z-line was focal in 49% of the specimens and was always present adjacent to the squamous epithelium. Goblet cells were present more frequently in the specimens immediately at the Z-line than in those 1-2 cm below the Z-line. H pylori was present in only four patients. The mean carditis scores of specimens 1-2 cm below the Z-line in these patients was significantly higher than in those patients without H pylori. CONCLUSIONS: Mucosal injury at the gastric cardia is highly localised to the region adjacent to the squamocolumnar junction in patients with GORD. Morphological studies of the cardia in GORD should focus on tissue samples that contain both squamous and columnar epithelium in order to obtain an accurate picture of the spectrum of injury.  (+info)

Patterns of gastritis in patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. (6/293)

BACKGROUND: The cause of inflammation in cardiac mucosa at the gastro-oesophageal junction (GOJ) is unclear, both gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and Helicobacter pylori having been implicated. AIMS: To describe patterns of gastritis in patients with symptomatic GORD. METHODS: In 150 patients (126 normally located Z-line, 24 Barrett's oesophagus) with symptoms of GORD, biopsies were taken of the GOJ, corpus, and antrum. Inflammation was assessed using the updated Sydney System. RESULTS: For the 126 patients with a normally located Z-line, biopsies of the GOJ revealed cardiac mucosa in 96, fundic mucosa in 29, and squamous mucosa in one. Inflammation in glandular mucosa at the GOJ was present in 99/125 specimens (79%), including 87/96 (91%) with cardiac mucosa and 12/29 (41%) with fundic mucosa. Inflammation in fundic mucosa was closely related to H pylori and active inflammation was only seen in its presence. Inflammation in cardiac mucosa was less closely linked to H pylori. When H pylori was present in cardiac mucosa (28/96, 29%) active inflammation was usually present (25/28, 89%). However, active inflammation was also found in 34/68 (50%) cardiac mucosa specimens without H pylori. Overall, 28/87 (32%) biopsies with carditis were colonised with H pylori and 59/87 (68%) were not. In H pylori colonised patients, inflammation was seen throughout the stomach, while in non-colonised patients, it was confined to cardiac mucosa. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with symptomatic GORD had a high prevalence of carditis. This was of two types, H pylori associated and unassociated. Except on Giemsa staining, the two were morphologically identical, suggesting mediation by a similar immunological mechanism.  (+info)

Relative risk of dysplasia for patients with intestinal metaplasia in the distal oesophagus and in the gastric cardia. (7/293)

BACKGROUND: Biopsy specimens obtained from the gastro-oesophageal junction can reveal intestinal metaplasia in patients presenting for routine upper endoscopy. The site of biopsy may play a critical role in determining the dysplasia risk of a patient. AIMS: To evaluate prospectively the dysplasia risk in patients with intestinal metaplasia of the distal oesophagus or within the gastric cardia. METHODS: Patients with short segment Barrett's oesophagus (SSBO) and cardia intestinal metaplasia (CIM) were followed prospectively. RESULTS: 177 patients with SSBO were identified (mean age 62 years, range 38-82; 91% whites). Twenty prevalence cases of dysplasia in SSBO were detected: 17 low grade dysplasia (LGD), three high grade dysplasia (HGD). Seventy six patients with CIM were identified (mean age 67 years, range 37-81; 81% whites). A single prevalence case of LGD in CIM was detected. During follow up of 78 SSBO and 34 CIM patients, dysplasia developed in nine (seven LGD, two HGD) with SSBO and in one (LGD) with CIM. There were significant differences between the two groups with respect to age, ethnicity, dysplasia prevalence, and incidence. Time to dysplasia progression was significantly longer in CIM compared with SSBO patients. Of the five patients with SSBO and HGD, one developed adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus on follow up. No HGD or cancers have been detected over this time period in CIM patients. CONCLUSIONS: The dysplasia risk is significantly greater in SSBO than in CIM patients, indicating two potentially different clinical processes. Future studies should separate SSBO from CIM in order to enhance the understanding of the pathophysiology and malignant potential of each entity.  (+info)

Columnar mucosa and intestinal metaplasia of the esophagus: fifty years of controversy. (8/293)

OBJECTIVE: To outline current concepts regarding etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of intestinal metaplasia of the esophagus and cardia. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Previously, endoscopic visualization of columnar mucosa extending a minimum of 3 cm into the esophagus was sufficient for the diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus, but subsequently the importance of intestinal metaplasia and the premalignant nature of Barrett's have been recognized. It is now apparent that shorter lengths of intestinal metaplasia are common, and share many features of traditional 3-cm Barrett's esophagus. METHODS: Themes and concepts pertaining to intestinal metaplasia of the esophagus and cardia are developed based on a review of the literature published between 1950 and 1999. RESULTS: Cardiac mucosa is the precursor of intestinal metaplasia of the esophagus. Both develop as a consequence of gastroesophageal reflux. Intestinal metaplasia, even a short length, is premalignant, and the presence of dysplasia indicates progression on the pathway to adenocarcinoma. Antireflux surgery, as opposed to medical therapy, may induce regression or halt progression of intestinal metaplasia. The presence of high-grade dysplasia is frequently associated with an unrecognized focus of adenocarcinoma. Vagal-sparing esophagectomy removes the diseased esophagus and is curative in patients with high-grade dysplasia. Invasion beyond the mucosa is associated with a high likelihood of lymph node metastases and requires lymphadenectomy. CONCLUSIONS: Despite improved understanding of this disease, controversy about the definition and best treatment of Barrett's esophagus continues, but new molecular insights, coupled with careful patient follow-up, should further enhance knowledge of this disease.  (+info)

Gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) is an aggressive subtype of gastric cancer with a high metastatic rate. However, the metastatic biomarker of GCA has not been established. To search for the biomarker for GCA metastasis, we here examined expression of the Hippo signaling effector WWTR1 (WW domain containing transcription regulator 1, commonly listed as TAZ) in tumor tissue samples from 214 GCA cases using the tissue microarray assay (TMA), and statistically analyzed association of the WWTR1 expression with metastasis-related pathological outcomes and cumulative survival of the GCA patients. Furthermore, shRNA knockdown was used to determine the role of WWTR1 in promoting cell migration in gastric cancer cells. The results have shown that WWTR1 is overexpressed in 66.4% of the GCA tumor samples. Expression of WWTR1 has a significant inverse correlation with cumulative survival of GCA patients (p | 0.01). WWTR1 positive patients had a mean survival of 56.9 ± 4.4 months, comparing to WWTR1 negative mean
Results 253 incident EAC, 191 gastric cardia adenocarcinomas and 125 gastric non-cardia adenocarcinomas accrued to the cohort. Overall obesity (BMI) was positively associated with EAC and gastric cardia adenocarcinoma risk (highest (≥35 kg/m2) vs referent (18.5-,25 kg/m2); HR 2.11, 95% CI 1.09 to 4.09 and HR 3.67, 95% CI 2.00 to 6.71, respectively). Waist circumference was also positively associated with EAC and gastric cardia adenocarcinoma risk (highest vs referent; HR 2.01, 95% CI 1.35 to 3.00 and HR 2.22, 95% CI 1.43 to 3.47, respectively), whereas waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) was positively associated with EAC risk only (highest vs referent; HR 1.81, 95% CI 1.24 to 2.64) and persisted in patients with normal BMI (18.5-,25 kg/m2). Mutual adjustment of WHR and BMI attenuated both, but did not eliminate the positive associations for either with risk of EAC. In contrast, the majority of the anthropometric variables were not associated with adenocarcinomas of the gastric non-cardia. ...
Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the world. Although certain dietary factors and lifestyles have been suggested to be associated with gastric carcinogenesis, there have been few investigations focusing on rural areas. A case-control study was therefore carried out to investigate the risk factors of gastric cardia cancer (GCC) in rural areas of Linzhou. A total of 470 newly diagnosed cases of GCC and 470 healthy controls were included. Face-to-face interviews were conducted, using a uniform questionnaire containing questions on demographics, per capita income, living habits, dietary habits and family history of tumors. The relationship between putative risk factors and GCC was assessed by odds ratios (OR) and their 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) derived from conditional logistic regression model by the COXREG command using SPSS 12.00. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to evaluate simultaneously the effects of multiple factors and other

There are several studies in the literature on CK expression in Barretts epithelium and the gastric cardia. Intestinal metaplasia in Barretts oesophagus and intestinal metaplasia of the gastric cardia can be distinguished on the basis of CK7 and CK20 expression.6-8 The largest study7 showed that a CK7+/CK20− phenotype had a positive predictive value of 87% for the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the distal oesophagus. About 90% of Barretts cancers were positive for CK7 but less than 18% expressed CK20.7 The same phenotype was found in only 24% of cancers located in the proximal stomach. Others confirmed these results.9-11 However, other studies have produced contradictory results, and have shown that CK7 but and CK20 immunoreactivity did not differentiate between Barretts adenocarcinoma and gastric cancer located at the cardia.12-15 Our present study is in line with these results. In one study, the CK phenotype was used to try to differentiate short segment Barretts intestinal metaplasia ...
Mechanisms behind the strong associations of esophageal adenocarcinoma risk with gastroesophageal reflux (GOR) and body mass remain to be defined. In a nationwide population-based case-control study, we examined associations of polymorphisms in the DNA repair genes XPD, XPC, XRCC1 and XRCC3 with risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma, squamous-cell carcinoma (SCC) and gastric cardia adenocarcinoma, and paid special attention to possible interactions with symptomatic reflux or body mass. We collected blood samples from 96, 81 and 126 interviewed incident cases of esophageal adenocarcinoma, esophageal SCC and gastric cardia adenocarcinoma, respectively, and 472 randomly selected controls, frequency-matched with regard to age and sex. DNA was extracted and polymorphisms in XPD codon 751 (Lys→Gln), codon 312 (Asp→Asn), C insertion in intron 10 of XPD, XPC codon 939 (Lys→Gln), XRCC1 codon 399 (Arg→Gln) and XRCC3 codon 241 (Thr→Met) were examined using PCR-RFLP.

The diffuse and intestinal histological subtypes of non-cardia cancer were of similar proportions, and both showed a positive association with H pylori and atrophy.. The team found that cardia cancer was negatively associated with H. pylori.. However, the researchers noted that H. pylori-positive cardia cancer showed an association with gastric atrophy.. The predominant histological subtype of cardia cancer was intestinal, and was not associated with gastric atrophy compared with the diffuse subtype.. Cardia cancer in patients with atrophy had an intestinal: diffuse ratio similar to non-cardia cancer.. The team observed that cardia cancers in patients without atrophy were predominantly intestinal.. Professor McColls team concluded, These findings indicate 2 etiologies of cardia cancer.. The first of these etiologies is associated with H. pylori atrophic gastritis, resembling non-cardia cancer.. The other is associated with non-atrophic gastric mucosa, resembling esophageal ...

372 The present study was undertaken to determine RASSF1A methylation in the gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) tissue and adjacent non-cancer tissues to further understand the moleculer mechanism of GCA and to screen the possible biomarkers to identify the high-risk subjects and early GCA patients. Primary GCA sample were collected from 42 cases. Adjacent non-cancer tissues and carcinoma tissues were selected from every patient. Methylation of RASSF1A gene promoter was detected using methylation-specific PCR (MSP). Promoter methylation of RASSF1A could be detected in GCA (27/42, 64%), while only one was found in adjacent non-cancer tissues. RASSF1A methylation was one of the possible mechanisms GCA carcinogenesis and might be a useful biomarker for identification of the high-risk subjects and early diagnosis for GCA. ...
Amplification of 19q13.1-q13.2 is one of the common genetic alterations in ovarian cancer, and overexpression of putative oncogene AKT2 at 19q13.1, which encodes a serine/threonine kinase, has been associated with the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer. Amplification of 19q13.1-q13.2 was also frequently detected in gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (9) and primary pancreatic carcinoma (10) . These studies strongly indicate that 19q13.1-q13.2 may contain an oncogene(s) related to the pathogenesis and progression of various solid tumors including ovarian cancer.. In this study, four ovarian cancer cell lines containing amplicon of 19q13.1-q13.2 in the form of hsr were characterized to define the overlapping MAR. Forty-nine cosmid clones and DNA markers within a 13.9-Mb region (average distance between two markers is ∼280 kb) at 19q13.1 were selected to detect overlapping MARs.

A particularly common misunderstanding involves the buildup of intestinal gas and its relationship to tachycardia. Dr. Roemhelds findings are sometimes misunderstood because compression of the heart and vagus nerve result in a SLOWING of the heart rate. What is not understood is that this slowing, as well as the nausea and dizziness from the buildup of pressure, can produce a panic reaction - resulting in tachycardia due to a panic attack. Also, upon the quick release of pressure through gas expulsion, the heart rate increases immediately, especially when lying down, due to the heart compensating for the pressure change. This is the purely physiological tachycardia response. Sufferers often cant differentiate between these three, which makes the symptoms all the more difficult to discuss clearly with their doctors, or receive a proper diagnosis ...

Despite being a young person, and although six years have elapsed, the growth of this pigmentation with these characteristics is indicative of heavy damage to this zone, making it necessary to make changes in his dietary habits and to gradual adapt treatments that enable strengthening those tissues and reducing the damage caused by the gastric juices.. This case study is very educational, not only because it is an example of alteration in the cardia, but also because it is, at the same time, another example of how changes in the iris do indeed occur. We have the 2009 photograph in which, inside the box marked, there was no indication of pigmentation and the 2015 photo in which it is abundantly clear how it has developed.

In the Oxford region 8,903 residents with oesophageal or gastric cancers were registered by the Oxford Cancer Registry between 1974 and 1988. For most of this time the Registrys practice was to code all adenocarcinomas of the oesophagus as adenocarcinomas of the cardia of stomach. There was a significant increase over time in the registered incidence of adenocarcinoma of the cardia, no appreciable change in the incidence of oesophageal cancers registered as such, and a decline in registered incidence of cancers of the stomach other than cardia.

Support. Adjusting to a serious health problem often takes time. You may feel depressed or anxious, lose touch with your social support system, or have to stop working for several weeks. If you get depressed, dont ignore it because depression can make your cardiac rehab program more difficult, as well as impact your relationships and other areas of your life and health. Counseling will help you learn healthy ways to cope with depression and other feelings, and your doctor may also suggest medications such as antidepressants. Vocational or occupational therapy will teach you new skills to help you return to work ...
Researchers from Duke University have come up with a few ways to help doctors provide better care for their patients who are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest.
Gastric is a hollow muscular organ shaped like a big cage, consists of three parts: cardia, fundus and antrum. Food into the stomach from the esophagus through a ring-shaped muscle (sphincter), which can open and close. Under normal circumstances, the sphincter prevents re-entry of gastric contents into the esophagus. Stomach serves as a storehouse of food, which contracts rhythmically to mix food with enzymes. The cells lining the stomach produce three important substances ...

Background: The reasons for the increasing incidence of and strong male predominance in patients with oesophageal and cardia adenocarcinoma remain unclear. The authors hypothesised that airborne occupational exposures in male dominated industries might contribute.. Methods: In a nationwide Swedish population based case control study, 189 and 262 cases of oesophageal and cardia adenocarcinoma respectively, 167 cases of oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma, and 820 frequency matched controls underwent personal interviews. Based on each study participants lifetime occupational history the authors assessed cumulative airborne occupational exposure for 10 agents, analysed individually and combined, by a deterministic additive model including probability, frequency, and intensity. Furthermore, occupations and industries of longest duration were analysed. Relative risks were estimated by odds ratios (OR), with 95% confidence intervals (CI), using conditional logistic regression, adjusted for potential ...

INTRODUCTION - Authors present six cases of intramural oesophageal metastases of adenocarcinomas located in the gastro-oesophageal junction. The tumours and metastases were diagnosed by endoscopic examinations. PATIENTS AND METHODS - Between 01. 01. 1994. and 31. 12. 2000. a total number of 143 patients were examined with the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the gastro-oesophageal junction. In six patients (4,19 %), intramural oesophageal metastases were verified. In each case the diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination. TNM stage of the tumours was assessed considering the results of endoscopic ultrasound examination, the findings at initial operation and the pathological data in all cases, where resection was performed. The tumours were localized according to Siewert- Steins classification. RESULTS - In six patients who had adenocarcinoma of the gastro-oesophageal junction, the diagnosis of intramural oesophageal metastases was confirmed. The histological structure of the primaer ...
surveys, was associated with a lower risk of colon, breast, and endometrial cancers. They also determined that leisure-time physical activity was associated with a lower risk of 10 additional cancers, with the greatest risk reductions for esophageal adenocarcinoma, liver cancer, cancer of the gastric cardia, kidney cancer, and myeloid leukemia. Myeloma and cancers of the head and neck, rectum, and bladder also showed reduced risks that were significant, but not as strong. Risk was reduced for lung cancer, but only for current and former smokers; the reasons for this are still being studied.. Leisure-time physical activity is known to reduce risks of heart disease and risk of death from all causes, and our study demonstrates that it is also associated with lower risks of many types of cancer, said Moore. Furthermore, our results support that these associations are broadly generalizable to different populations, including people who are overweight or obese, or those with a history of smoking. ...
An apparatus for the treatment of acid reflux disease comprising two or more movement restriction device segments adapted to be assembled movement restriction device of a controlled size. The assembled movement restriction device can at least partly be invaginated by a patients stomach fundus wall. A substantial part of the outer surface of the movement restriction device is adapted to rest against the stomach wall without injuring the latter in a position between the patients diaphragm and at least a portion of the lower part of the invaginated stomach fundus wall, such that movement of the cardiac notch of the patients stomach towards the patients diaphragm is restricted, to thereby prevent the cardia from sliding through the patients diaphragm opening into the patients thorax, so as to maintain the supporting pressure against the patients cardia sphincter muscle exerted from the patients abdomen.

Abstract Background TheMagenstrasse and Mill (M&M) procedure is a vertical gastroplasty creating a tubular pouch extending from the cardia to the antrum. This incomplete sleeve avoids gastric resection or band placement. In this paper, we report our experience of the laparoscopic approach of the technique in a selected obese population excluding prominent grazer and/or sweet eaters. Material and Methods One hundred patients (39 males, 61 females) underwent the procedure in a prospective trial.Mean age was 40 years (range 18-68). Mean preoperative BMI was 43.2 kg/m2 (range 35-62). Results The procedure was performed by laparoscopy starting with the creation of a circular opening at the junction of antrum and corpus followed by a vertical stapling ...
Complete data were obtained from 2,455 participants. We first predicted year-20 lung function from year-15 ICAM-1 concentration data. After controlling for race, gender, height, age, physical activity, smoking status, alcohol intake, BMI, and asthma status, all taken at year 15, the year-20 FVC was 164 mL higher (p , 0.0001) and FEV1 was 164 mL higher (p = 0.0003) in the lowest ICAM-1 concentration quartile than the highest ICAM-1 quartile, whereas the FEV1/FVC ratio showed no association (p = 0.25). We then predicted the year-15 ICAM-1 concentration from year-5 lung function and change in lung function (year 10 - year 5). The year-15 ICAM-1 concentration was about 13 ng/mL higher in the lowest vs highest quartile of either the year-5 FVC (p = 0.01) or year-5 FEV1 (p = 0.005). Year-15 ICAM-1 concentration was unrelated to year-5 FEV1/FVC ratio. Greater loss in FVC and FEV1 (year 10 - year 5) also was associated with higher year-15 ICAM-1 concentrations. Associations between P-selectin and lung ...

BACKGROUND:. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is denoted by hyperandrogenism and symptoms of ovulation dysfunction (e.g., infertility, oligomenorrhea). Women who are diagnosed with PCOS represent the more extreme end of abnormal ovarian function. While PCOS is rare, approximately 20 percent of women are expected to have subclinical polycystic ovaries, identified by sonogram. Factors that are associated with PCOS, insulin resistance and dyslipidemia, are also risk factors for coronary artery disease and there is evidence to suggest that women with PCOS are more likely to experience coronary artery disease. This raises the question: are subclinical cases of polycystic ovaries at increased risk of coronary artery disease?. The study is ancillary to the the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study, a large cohort study supported by the NHLBI. The CARDIA population provides a unique opportunity to explore these associations because there is a 15-year period of risk factor ...
Accurate and full diagnosis depends on both pathological and endoscopic correlation.5 The current definition of Barretts oesophagus is as a change in the oesophagus epithelium of any length that can be recognised at endoscopy and is confirmed to have intestinal metaplasia by biopsy of the tubular oesophagus and excludes intestinal metaplasia of the cardia. This statement appears simple but its correct application is not straightforward. It would seem self evident that the lower oesophagus can be accurately demarcated; however, this is not the case. Unfortunately, at endoscopic examination its precise boundaries can be easily mistaken.6 The distinction of the oesophagus, hiatal hernia, and gastric cardia is often difficult. Similarly, there is a major conundrum for pathologists as there is no characteristic morphological phenotype. Standard teaching is that the gastric cardia is lined by columnar cardiac or junctional epithelium but pathologists are not uniform in their definitions. This ...
BACKGROUND: Previous studies have suggested an association between depression and low socioeconomic status, but few have empirically examined the effect of depressive symptoms on income and employment over time. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether depressive symptoms are associated with subsequent unemployment or loss of family income. METHODS: We performed a prospective cohort study of 5115 adults aged 18 to 30 years. These participants included approximately equal numbers of African Americans and whites and men and women from 4 cities in the United States who completed the 1990-1991 examination of the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study. For this analysis, we included 2334 participants who were employed full or part time and who reported an annual family income of $25 000 or more. Participants completed the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale and were considered to have depressive symptoms if they scored 16 or higher on the 60-point scale. We evaluated self
Wanted to provide an update. My sister has had 4 sessions of chemo (doxorubicin and oxaliplatin) 3 weeks apart so far. She is also taking Xeloda orally daily. She seems to be responding well to the chemo since her blood markers for her cancer (CA19.9) have dropped from 389 to 87 during the 12 weeks period. She had a CT and PET scan after the 4th round of chemo and the existing tumors had shrunk and additional metastates were not found. She is feeling well and has been working throughout. She is very lucky. Wanted to share with others the other things she has been doing to improve her chances. She takes turmeric (fresh or powder) daily, as well as fresh garlic, before dinner. She has a glass of whatgrass juice (from Amazing Grass wheatgrass powder) on an empty stomach in the morning to alkalize her body. She has transitioned to a mostly vegetarian diet emphasizing fresh fruits, legumes, and vegetables. She has also been drinking fresh vegetable juice from a juicer (single gear masticating juicer) ...
A case of adenosquamous carcinoma of the liver involving the esophago-gastric junction is reported. The preoperative diagnosis of a submucosal tumor of the cardia of the stomach was made following a barium meal study, gastrofiberscopy, ultrasonography, and computed tomography. At surgery, a tumor was found measuring 6x5 cm in diameter and involving the left lobe of the liver, lower esophagus and cardia of the stomach, and the origin of the tumor was unclear. Post-operative histopathology revealed that the tumor contained two different malignant components of glandular and squamous cells. An adenosquamous carcinoma originating in the liver was suspected, since the cancer cells did not involve the esophago-gastric mucosa and were mainly located in the S2 of the liver. Despite aggressive adjuvant chemotherapy, the patient died of a recurrence in the liver seven months later. This seems to be the first documentation of adenosquamous carcinoma of the liver invading the esophago-gastric junction ...

All treatment modalities of achalasia aim at reducing the resistance at the cardia sufficiently to allow easy aboral flow, but insufficiently to favour gastroesophageal reflux. This can be achieved either by powerful dilatation or by cardiomyotomy. Early and late results, morbidity and mortality rates and late complications of these different treatment modalities are discussed. The personal experience of the authors with progressive pneumatic dilatations in a series of 700 patients is described ...

Using central venous catheter for suprapubic catheterization in cardiac surgery Eissa Bilehjani,1 Solmaz Fakhari2 1Department of Cardiovascular Anesthesia, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Madani Heart Hospital, 2Department of Anesthesiology, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Madani Heart Hospital, Tabriz, Iran Abstract: Suprapubic catheterization is an alternative method for urinary drainage that is used when transurethral catheterization fails. Traditionally, inserted large-bore suprapubic catheters may cause fatal complications. During the past decade, we used a small central venous catheter (CVC) suprapubicly in 16 male patients for the purpose of urinary drainage, when transurethral catheterization failed. The procedure is performed in no more than 10 minutes. Success rate was 100% and this approach did not lead to any complications. In conclusion, placing a CVC for suprapubic drainage is a safe method with a high success rate and we ...

Wanted to provide an update. My sister has had 4 sessions of chemo (doxorubicin and oxaliplatin) 3 weeks apart so far. She is also taking Xeloda orally daily. She seems to be responding well to the chemo since her blood markers for her cancer (CA19.9) have dropped from 389 to 87 during the 12 weeks period. She had a CT and PET scan after the 4th round of chemo and the existing tumors had shrunk and additional metastates were not found. She is feeling well and has been working throughout. She is very lucky. Wanted to share with others the other things she has been doing to improve her chances. She takes turmeric (fresh or powder) daily, as well as fresh garlic, before dinner. She has a glass of whatgrass juice (from Amazing Grass wheatgrass powder) on an empty stomach in the morning to alkalize her body. She has transitioned to a mostly vegetarian diet emphasizing fresh fruits, legumes, and vegetables. She has also been drinking fresh vegetable juice from a juicer (single gear ...
