Retrograde esophageal balloon dilatation for caustic stricture in an outpatient clinic setting. (1/251)Caustic injury to the esophagus, with resultant esophageal stricture, is a challenge for the surgeon. These strictures require multiple esophageal dilatations, which are usually performed under general anesthesia and frequently under fluoroscopic control. Because of the risks of multiple general anesthetics and frequent radiation, a technique is described for retrograde esophageal balloon dilatation in an outpatient clinic setting without a general anesthetic or fluoroscopic control.

Correction of bone marrow failure in dyskeratosis congenita by bone marrow transplantation. (2/251)Dyskeratosis congenita is recognized by its dermal lesions and constitutional aplastic anemia in some cases. We report successful allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in two siblings with this disease from their sister, and their long term follow-up. We used reduced doses of cyclophosphamide and busulfan for conditioning instead of total body irradiation. Also, we report late adverse effects of transplantation which are not distinguishable from the natural course of disease. (+info)
Reduction of unsafe eating in a patient with esophageal stricture. (3/251)Previous research has demonstrated the efficacy of behavioral interventions in teaching self-feeding skills as well as in reducing inappropriate self-feeding behavior. The purpose of this study was to extend previous research on the use of prompting and reinforcement in reducing unsafe eating behaviors to the treatment of an adolescent with developmental disabilities and esophageal stricture. A behavioral assessment and treatment using prompting and reinforcement were shown to be effective in decreasing bite rate, decreasing bite size, and increasing the number of chews per bite. (+info)
Surgical treatment of oesophageal obstruction after ingestion of a granular laxative. (4/251)A case of oesophageal obstruction after ingestion of a granular laxative in a 91-year-old man is presented. There was no predisposing oesophageal disease. The severity of obstruction prevented endoscopic clearance and the patient required gastrotomy and manual disimpaction of the lower oesophagus. (+info)
Omeprazole therapy decreases the need for dilatation of peptic oesophageal strictures. (5/251)BACKGROUND: Better control of gastric acid secretion with omeprazole appeared to decrease the need for dilatation of oesophageal strictures complicating gastro-oesophageal reflux disease in our hospital-based endoscopy service. AIM: To investigate whether the perceived decrease in the need for oesophageal dilatation could be documented from endoscopy records, and, if confirmed, whether this could be related to the treatment used. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective study of the records of 69 patients who had peptic oesophageal strictures dilated, followed by treatment with acid inhibition for at least 6 months. Mean duration of follow-up was 3.9 years during treatment with H2-receptor antagonists and 2.1 years while on omeprazole (258 and 78 patient-years, respectively). Re-dilatation rates were compared between those treated with H2-receptor antagonists or omeprazole. RESULTS: There has been a significant decrease in dilatations performed for gastro-oesophageal reflux induced strictures (P<0.001), while dilatation rates for other indications remained constant. Treatment with omeprazole not only decreased the need for further dilatations, but also prolonged the mean time between any further dilatations to 26.3 months compared to 9.3 months for those on an H2-receptor antagonist (P<0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Following dilatation of peptic oesophageal strictures, treatment with omeprazole in place of an H2-blocker significantly decreases the need for repeat dilatation. (+info)
Gastric cancer and other endoscopic diagnoses in patients with benign dyspepsia. (6/251)BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that endoscopy could be replaced with non-invasive assessment of helicobacter status in the initial work up of young dyspeptic patients without sinister symptoms. AIMS: To determine the incidence of gastro-oesophageal malignancy in young dyspeptic patients. METHODS: The Alberta Endoscopy Project captured clinical and demographic data on all endoscopies performed from April 1993 to February 1996 at four major adult hospitals in Alberta. The endoscopic and histological diagnosis in a subgroup of patients under 45 years of age without alarm symptoms that had undergone gastroscopy was reviewed. In addition, a random list of 200 patients was generated and their medical records reviewed in order to assess the proportion with symptoms suitable for a non-invasive management strategy. RESULTS: Gastroscopy was performed in 7004 patients under 45 years. In 3634 patients (56% female) alarm type symptoms were absent; 78.9% of patients had symptoms amenable to a non-invasive initial approach, giving a corrected sample size of 2867 patients (correction factor 0.789). Three gastric cancers, one case of moderate dysplasia, 10 biopsy proved cases of Barrett's oesophagus, and 19 oesophageal strictures/rings were detected within this sample. The corrected prevalence of gastric cancer in this select population was 1.05 per thousand patients. DISCUSSION: Endoscopy yielded three gastric cancers in this sample of under 45 year old dyspeptic patients without sinister symptoms. While initial non-invasive screening with one-week triple therapy for helicobacter positive individuals is unlikely to have a detrimental outcome the physician is advised to consider endoscopy in patients with persisting, recurrent, or sinister symptoms.

Esophageal obstruction in horses: a retrospective study of 34 cases. (7/251)The major purpose of this investigation was to describe the causes, possible complications, and prognoses of horses with esophageal obstruction. Of 34 cases presenting with esophageal obstruction, 28 cases were due to impaction of ingesta. Obstruction due to pre-existing esophageal disease occurred in 4 horses with megaesophagus, in 1 horse with stricture in the upper third of the esophagus, and in 1 horse with esophageal diverticulum. There was no significant difference in the contamination of the trachea between horses that subsequently developed aspiration pneumonia and those that did not. The duration of esophageal obstruction prior to admission was significantly longer in horses that developed aspiration pneumonia (median 18, range 2-48 h) than in those horses that did not (median 4, range 0.5-48 h). Although the obstruction was relieved in all 34 horses, 4 were euthanized because of recurring obstruction due to megaesophagus (n = 2), esophageal diverticulum (n = 1), and esophageal stricture (n = 1).

Improvement in lower esophageal sphincter pressure following surgery for complicated gastroesophageal reflux. (8/251)A comparison was made of the pre- and postoperative lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressures in nine patients undergoing a posterior gastropexy for complicated gastroesophageal reflux. LES pressure was increased from 4.4 plus or minus 0.4 mm Hg to 13.9 plus or minus 0.5 mm Hg following surgery (p less than .01). The ratio of the change in LES pressure compared to the change in gastric pressure during increases in intra-abdominal pressure delta S/delta G, was 0.59 plus or minus 0.05 preoperatively and 0.94 plus or minus .01 postoperatively (p less than .01). All patients were asymptomatic after surgery. Both the resting LES pressure and the S/G ratio following surgery were significantly less than the comparable values obtained in an age-matched control population (p less than .01). These studies suggest that the clinical improvement following surgery for gastroesophageal reflux may be due to the increase in resting LES pressure and the improved response of the LES to increased intra-abdominal pressure.

Techniques for Dilation of Benign Esophageal Stricture | Adult Chest Surgery, 2e | AccessSurgery | McGraw-Hill Medical
Benign strictures of the esophagus usually result from scarring and subsequent tissue contraction secondary to esophageal wall injury. This pathology is caused in most cases by long-standing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), often in association with one of the esophageal motility disorders (e.g., achalasia, diffuse esophageal spasm, or aperistalsis).1,2 Endoscopic dilation of benign esophageal strictures that are refractory to medical management is a less morbid alternative to surgery. Approximately 20% to 30% of cases are unrelated to GERD, and their treatment usually is more challenging. Examples include strictures arising from complications of surgical anastomosis,3 injuries caused by caustic ingestions, early and late consequences of external-beam radiation, esophageal sclerotherapy, laser or photodynamic therapy, medication- or pill-induced esophagitis that is associated with numerous medications (e.g., alendronate, ferrous sulfate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, phenytoin, ...

The rate of bleeding was 0.6% (95% CI 0.4-1.1, I2-17.1%), and 0.3% (95% CI, 0.2-0.8, I2-60.6%) for balloon and bougie dilatations respectively. ...
Complete Esophageal Obstruction after Endoscopic Variceal Band Ligation in a Patient with a Sliding Hiatal Hernia | ACG Case...
Endoscopic variceal banding works by capturing the varices causing venous occlusion from thrombosis and leading to tissue necrosis. The bands slough off in a few days, leaving a superficial ulceration that rapidly heals. EVL has been associated with fewer complications and mortality than endoscopic sclerotherapy.1-6 Complications described after EVL include transient dysphagia, stricture formation, ulcers, pneumonia, and spontaneous bacterial peritonitis.1-6. Complete esophageal obstruction following EVL is extremely rare. Only 6 prior cases exist in the English literature.7-12 Esophageal obstruction post-banding may occur secondary to edema and necrosis at the banding area. It is believed that placing a band close to mucosa that is damaged with edema or necrosis may increase the risk of post-ligation obstruction. We believe that allowing appropriate time for the damaged mucosa to heal between banding is crucial to avoid this complication. There is limited evidence to support an optimal time ...

Malignant esophageal obstruction and esophagorespiratory fistula: palliation with a polyethylene-covered Z-stent
Thirty-nine stents were placed in 35 patients. Stent placement was technically successful in all patients. Improvement in dysphagia was achieved in 34 of 35 patients. The average dysphagia score decreased from 3.1 (dysphagia to liquids) to 0.6 (essentially normal diet). An esophagorespiratory fistula was completely sealed in two of three patients. All 35 patients were followed up clinically at 1 day and 1 week and at 3-month intervals (range, 1 week to 18 1/2 months; mean, 4.8 months). Recurrent dysphagia or aspiration occurred in only three of 34 (9%) patients whose disease was initially palliated and was easily treated in all cases. Nine complications occurred in eight patients (23%) and included chest pain that required analgesia (n = 3), food impaction (n = 1), stent migration (n = 2), and upper gastrointestinal tract hemorrhage (n = 3).

Its origin is considered as either oropharyngeal or oesophageal. Oropharyngeal dysphagia is usually related to neuromuscular dysfunction and is commonly caused by stroke. Oesophageal dysphagia is usually due to motor disorders, such as achalasia or diffuse oesophageal spasm, and to peptic oesophageal strictures often secondary to reflux. In this type of dysphagia there is a sensation of a hold-up, which may be experienced in either the cervical or retrosternal region.1 Causes are usually classified as functional, mechanical and neurological (see Table 48.1). ...
GastroHep News Story
Drs El-Serag and Lau from Texas examined the temporal trends in strictures. The team calculated age-adjusted incidence rates of new esophageal strictures with or without esophageal dilation.. The team evaluated a sample of Medicare beneficiaries between 1992 and 2000.. The team also assessed recurrent dilations recorded at least 3 months after a new stricture or the preceding recurrent stricture.. The research team found that the age-adjusted rates for strictures accompanied with dilation declined by approximately 11% from 215 per million to 192 per million.. New esophageal strictures with dilation declined as a proportion of all upper endoscopies procedures, from 3% to 2%.. The researchers found that recurrent dilation within 1 year declined dramatically from 16% in 1992 to 8% in 2000.. Using a multivariable proportional hazards model, the team found a 30% risk reduction of recurrent esophageal strictures.. Dr El-Serags team concluded, This population-based study indicates that the incidence ...

Strictures - Endoscopy Center of Santa Fe
With strictures, you may find yourself chewing longer, needing to wash food down with water or other liquids and even taking smaller bites of food to help it pass through the esophagus. Some people with strictures begin to eat less because of pain when swallowing. This can lead to weight loss. When food gets stuck in your esophagus from a severe stricture and is vomited back up, you may need immediate treatment. Doctors can diagnose strictures with a barium esophagram. The barium esophagram outlines the size and location of the stricture or strictures in your esophagus. Your doctor may also perform an endoscopy to visually evaluate the situation in your esophagus visually. Treatment for Strictures ...

Radiation therapy, extended partial pharyngectomy and salvage procedures support the development of oesophageal stenosis because they have higher rates of complications such as wound heeling disorders and fistulas. Treatment of oesophageal stenosis is difficult and of long duration. This can mean multiple dilatations with bougies or balloon dilatation. In severe cases or in presence of a fistula stent implantation could be a choice.. We included 7 patients in this study which had different histories of treatments. In 4 cases laryngectomy was done as a salvage procedure after radiation. The Intervals between laryngectomy and stent implantation was from 1 month up to 174 months. The length of the Polyflex stent was 90 mm in 3 patients, 120 mm in 3 patients and 150 mm in one patient. After stent implantation all patients could eat at least semi-solid food except for one patient. Only one patient had severe pain because of the stent and needed pain medication. 5 patients had oral and aboral ...

Gastroscopy » Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Specialists
This procedure allows us to directly examine the mucosa (lining) of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. These are common locations of many important gastrointestinal diseases such as reflux disease, hiatus hernia, oesophageal and stomach cancers, oesophageal strictures, stomach and duodenal ulcers and coeliac disease.. Gastroscopy requires the stomach to be empty to provide us with the best possible views. During gastroscopy we are able to diagnose abnormalities by direct inspection and confirm the findings by biopsy and microscopic examination. We can also diagnose Helicobacter pylori which can lead to peptic ulcers and stomach cancer. Additionally, we can treat many disorders such as strictures (narrowing) of the oesophagus by dilatation (stretching).. Teresa, Bruce, Richard, Gary and Catherine believe in performing the highest quality gastroscopy and are founding members of Quality Endoscopy New Zealand.. Gastroscopy is performed at Southern Cross Endoscopy.. Information for those having a ...

AU - Krishna, Handattu Mahabaleswara. AU - Budania, Lokvendra. AU - Nileshwar, Anitha. PY - 2019/5/1. Y1 - 2019/5/1. N2 - Iatrogenic tracheobronchial injury is rare. Limited data is available on such injuries in infants and management of these is challenging. We present a 7-month-old male infant who was diagnosed with oesophageal stricture, and was planned for thoracoscopic repair of the same. Anaesthetic management with a single lumen tracheal tube ensued. However, an intraoperative loss of capnogram and desaturation led to the diagnosis of iatrogenic tracheobronchial injury. After unsuccessful pursuits with a Fogarty catheter through the tracheobronchial tear and through the right bronchus for lung isolation, blind left endobronchial intubation with a smaller tube and one lung ventilation was successful. The rent was ...

Human Dilatations. Human Dilatations_Compositions, Suspension and Monoliths are a glimpse of the lack the contemporary human being, bared of the two elements that distinguish his quest: the physical perfection and the actual power/role of the mind. Each image represents a body whose proportions are partially distorted and prevails over a head that dissolves, without leaving a trace.. My path began with the approach of the image of women of our times has been reduced to a pattern, a combination of codes and models that lead to the woman/individual instead of the other way around. Human Dilatations does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections but rather encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself, in a game of distortions that allows one to differently relate to the image, entirely detached from the stereotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.. My challenge is to seek the essence of the female being in a dimension that goes beyond the logos, ...
Humira and Strictures? - Crohn's Disease - HealingWell.com Forum
I think the original scare with anti-TNF treatments and strictures was that the rapid healing of the mucosal/drapid decrease of inflammation in regards to strictures could cause scarring/fibrostenotic strictures. Ive read some studies that do not support this and many say it can be very helpful in decreasing the strictures.... unless of course the stricture is already a fibrostenotic/stricture cause from scar tissue ...

Primary Cholangioscopy Versus ERCP in the Diagnosis of Biliary Strictures - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The management of biliary strictures depends on their correct pre-operative evaluation which remains challenging. Biliary strictures have various etiologies (traumatic, inflammatory, tumoral, ischemic etc), which are necessarily needed to be known for the correct therapeutic approach. Despite the emerging multitudes of new diagnostic opportunities and modalities (laboratory, radiological, endoscopic, histopathologic and immunohistological) which exist today, there is still a large number of biliary stenosis misdiagnosed with a profound negative impact on the patients´ outcome. The dilemma that exists is how to balance the risk of missing the chance of curative surgery for some malignancy and preventing some patients from unnecessary surgery for benign etiologies and not to waste time. Therefore, diagnostic methods which can maximize the chance of the preoperative diagnosis of indeterminate biliary strictures are needed.. This study will:. compare two methods helping in the diagnosis of ...

17 Signs Your Body Is Too Acidic And 9 Ways To Quickly Alkalize It - Mag For Health
It normally begins with unfortunate propensities. Smoking, the absence of rest, anxiety and, in particular, the nourishments you eat can all influence your bodys pH levels.. At whatever point you eat food which leads to the acid formation in the stomach, for example, dairy, grains, meats and sugar, your body needs to utilize alkalizing minerals, for example, calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium to kill the corrosive delivered from metabolizing these sustenances.. When you dont eat enough soluble sustenances to recharge these, your body needs to utilize minerals from crucial organs and issues that remain to be worked out the corrosive in your body.. On account of this, your bodys mineral stores can achieve hazardously low levels and cause harm that can go undetected for quite a long time.. ...
