Spike Mendelsohn freely admits he wasnt entirely ready to move on his fledgling restaurant, Béarnaise (315 Pennsylvania Ave. SE), last year when he snatched up the prime real estate just behind his other well-trafficked properties. But the restaurateur couldnt pass up the chance to bring his career, and some of his most cherished dining memories, full circle with a steak frites place of his own. Friends and family will get the chance to sample the fruits of Mendelsohns latest labors on Saturday and again June 24 during the soft opening. A Mendelsohn spokeswoman said the plan is to begin welcoming the general public, for both lunch and dinner, on June 28. Memory Lane The Montreal-born Mendelsohn, who rocketed to stardom here in the states after appearing on season four of "Top Chef" (he returned to the ratings juggernaut for season eight, "Top Chef All-Stars," and also co-stars in the reality TV brands latest spin-off, "Life After Top Chef"), said he and his sister/business partner, ...

Swallowing begins with a voluntary (oral) phase that includes preparation during which food is masticated and mixed with saliva. This is followed by a transfer phase during which the bolus is pushed into the pharynx by the tongue. Bolus entry into the hypopharynx initiates the pharyngeal swallow response, which is centrally mediated and involves a complex series of actions, the net result of which is to propel food through the pharynx into the esophagus while preventing its entry into the airway. To accomplish this, the larynx is elevated and pulled forward, actions that also facilitate upper esophageal sphincter (UES) opening. Tongue pulsion then propels the bolus through the UES, followed by a peristaltic contraction that clears residue from the pharynx and through the esophagus. The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) relaxes as the food enters the esophagus and remains relaxed until the peristaltic contraction has delivered the bolus into the stomach. Peristaltic contractions elicited in ...
Here, decisions are made every day that impact the worlds largest comprehensive cancer center.. For most of his 15 years as president, Mendelsohn reported to work across the street on the 11th floor of the Main Building. When his office moved to Pickens Academic Tower in August 2010, Mendelsohn brought with him many of the reference materials and items of inspirational and sentimental significance that hes collected during his career.. Heres what the office looked like one spring afternoon when Mendelsohn returned from a business meeting:. 1.

He has been on editorial boards for numerous other journals.. 3. Framed photos: These ...
Definition : Gastrointestinal manometers designed to measure the pressure in the esophagus (i.e., intraesophageal). These manometers typically be an external pressure measuring instrument with a display or gauge and appropriate esophageal catheters. Esophageal manometers may be instruments that measure and display pressure externally using esophageal water-perfusion catheters with openings at different levels or electronic instruments that process and display the signal from a set of built-in pressure transducers located in a catheter; the instruments frequently include a pH sensor. They are intended to assess pressure at various points in the esophagus, typically in the upper esophageal sphincter, at several midpoints, and in the lower esophageal sphincter. The instruments are intended to assess patients with dysphagia, acid reflux, and/or other upper gastrointestinal tract diseases.. Entry Terms : "Pressure Measuring Units, Esophageal" , "Esophageal Manometers". UMDC code : 13108 ...
Sword swallowing requires a lot of practice, not only to work through the dangers, but also to train your body to ignore its natural impulses and succumb to involuntary movements ordinarily used while eating. The gag reflex is the first thing you will need to overcome, but as you start swallowing longer objects, you will need to prevent your upper esophageal sphincter from contracting like it does when you eat. Ordinarily, this is a good reflex as it encourages food to enter your stomach faster…when you have a 15 inch sword stuck in your GI tract though, this is not something you want to happen. Depending on how long the sword is, you may even have to train your lower esophageal sphincter not to contract as well, as many swords actually enter the stomach cavity. Keep in mind that you not only have to control all of these inner workings of your body, but you also have to look completely comfortable while doing so. ...
The upper esophageal sphincter, or UES, is a muscle at the top of your esophagus that opens when you swallow and otherwise remains closed to prevent stomach contents from regurgitating back up into your throat and lungs.. A weak or compromised UES has trouble staying closed, so stomach contents including acids, pepsins and other enzymes may rise above the UES and enter the throat and lungs.. The Reza Band applies slight external pressure to the UES to help it function properly.. ...
Memorial Sloan Kettering gastroenterologist Robin Mendelsohn has expertise in managing gastrointestinal issues that arise in people with cancer. She has a particular interest in working with people who are at high risk for developing colon cancer and rectal cancer because of hereditary conditions, such as Lynch syndrome, as well as those with young onset colon and rectal cancers.
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the normal relation of swallowing apnea (SA) onset relative to lingual bolus propulsion along with factors that may alter this relation. Forty adults, composed of 10 men and 10 women in each of 2 age groups (i.e., 20-30 and 63-79 years) participated. SA onset was assessed during 5- and 20-ml bolus volumes of water and apple juice across 3 trials. The effects of age, gender, bolus volume, bolus viscosity, and gustation on SA onset relative to lingual bolus propulsion were examined. A significant interaction of Age × Gender × Volume was found. In general, older adults initiated SA onset earlier than young adults, and large boluses elicited an earlier SA onset than small boluses regardless of group. Young men demonstrated significantly later SA onset than the older men for large volumes; this difference was not observed for small volumes, nor was it found between young and older women. SA onset also was assessed during 5-ml bolus volumes of thin apple ...
John Mendelsohn, M.D., past-president of MD Anderson, is the Director of the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Institute for Personalized Cancer Therapy and Gordon Mills, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the Department of Systems Biology at MD Anderson, is co-director.. Dr. Mendelsohn has been a leader in the field of targeted cancer therapy since 1980, creating, with his colleagues, the first reported inhibitor of the product of a tyrosine kinase oncogene - monoclonal antibody C225 against the EGF receptor - which ultimately led to the FDA approval of the drug, renamed cetuximab (Erbitux), in 2004. Dr. Mills extensive experience with rapidly evolving technology used in the discovery of biomarkers and their application in clinical trials and patient care, directing the Kleberg Center for Molecular Markers, and his visionary T9 program (Ten Thousand Tumors, Ten Thousand Tests, Ten Thousand Therapies) that screens the 40+ most commonly mutationally activated genes, will ensure a timely transition from ...

Dr Els Verschuur and colleagues from the Netherlands determined the efficacy and safety of stent placement in patients with a malignant obstruction close to the upper esophageal sphincter.. Evaluation of 104 patients with dysphagia from a malignant stricture close to the upper esophageal sphincter treated in the period from 1996 to 2006.. The team identified 66 patients with primary esophageal carcinoma, and 38 with recurrent cancer after gastric tube interposition within 8 cm distance distal of the upper esophageal sphincter.. The team found that 23% of patients also had a tracheoesophageal fistula.. Functional and technical outcome, survival, complications, and recurrent dysphagia.. Analyses were performed by chi-squared test, Kaplan-Meier curves, and log-rank testing.. The researchers found that mean distance from the upper esophageal sphincter to the upper tumor margin was 5 cm, and 3 cm to the upper stent margin.. The procedure was technically successful in 96% of patients.. Fistula sealing ...
Changes in esophageal motility: In the esophagus, aging processes in addition to presence of medical problems such as diabetes mellitus and intake of drugs, lead to various changes that affect the overall function of this organ which are mainly concerned with motility(4) . However, in an otherwise healthy elderly person, the changes are so minor to cause any major disability. Presbyesophagus is the term given to describe an esophagus with esophageal motor dysfunction attributed to aging(1) . A presbyesophagus has decreased contractile amplitude, decreased polyphasic waves in the esophageal body, incomplete sphincter relaxation and esophageal dilation (4) . With age, there appears to be a gradual decrease in the upper esophageal sphincter pressure, but the resting pressure of the lower esophageal sphincter seems not to be significantly affected(3) . In addition, there is a delay in the upper esophageal sphincter relaxation after swallowing which itself, i. e swallowing, needs a higher than usual ...
The purpose of this research study is to examine and evaluate a part of the digestive system (gastrointestinal tract). The specific part the study team will look at is called the lower esophageal sphincter complex. This complex is located where the esophagus (food pipe) meets the top of the stomach. The lower esophageal sphincter complex involves a group of muscles, and the study team hopes to better understand how they work.. The study team hopes that, by studying the lower esophageal sphincter complex, it may be possible to discover how it functions and what causes it to fail. When a complex fails, this can lead to reflux and heartburn. So learning more about the lower esophageal complex may help doctors better treat future patients with reflux problems.. We plan to study these functions in normal control subjects, in patients with GERD (heartburn symptoms), and in patients with Barretts esophagus (a change in the lining of the esophagus due to chronic reflux). The doctor performing the ...
Dysphagia involved both solids and liquids. Regurgitation consisted of partially digested or non-digested food, increasing in the supine position. Asymptomatic cases were incidentally diagnosed when undergoing an esophagogram for another reason.. A hiatal hernia was seen in the esophagogram of 19% of cases.. Esophageal manometry showed a high-pressure upper esophageal sphincter in all 3 patients who underwent this study. In 2 patients an incomplete relaxation of the upper esophageal sphincter and pharynx-esophageal discoordination was also observed. A chest CT scan was performed in one case of aspirative pneumonia -it showed a dilated cervical esophagus suggesting Zenkers diverticulum, which was confirmed by an esophagogram.. Most cases began oral feeding 24-48 hours after surgery. Pathology did not reveal any case of carcinoma in association with Zenkers diverticulum.. Follow-up was performed for all operated patients 6 months after surgery. The only case of recurrence developed in one ...
The esophagus is a hollow muscular tube, closed proximally and distally by muscular sphincters. The esophageal wall is composed of an inner mucosal layer of squamous epithelium and connective tissue, within which lies a longitudinally oriented muscle layer called the muscularis mucosa. The function of this muscle layer is unclear, but it likely is involved in mucosal movement. The outer muscular coat, known as the muscularis propria, is involved in bolus transport and consists of an inner layer of circularly oriented muscle fibers and an outer layer of longitudinally oriented fibers. In between these two muscle layers lies the myenteric plexus, which controls the motor function of these muscles. The upper esophageal sphincter (UES) and proximal one third of esophageal body is composed of striated muscle. There is then a transition zone where striated and smooth muscle intermix. The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and the distal one half to two thirds of the esophageal body are composed of ...
The esophagus has two sphincter muscles: the lower and upper esophageal sphincter. Complications in either of these sphincter muscles can lead to some complications. When the lower esophageal sphincter has a problem, for instance, you hear someone complaining about the backflow of acidic contents from the stomach to the esophagus. According to research oriented, this could be a key symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD.. ...

The pain you feel in your chest after eating a high-fat meal may not be your heart telling you to eat better, but may be your lower esophageal sphincter losing pressure. Your esophagus has two sphincters, upper and lower.
The upper esophageal sphincter closes behind the food bolus, sealing its doom. There isnt a whole lot to the esophagus. Its just a slimy, muscular tube for moving matter from the pharynx down to the stomach (and, when occasion merits, back up again.) Liquids slide through by gravity, but a solid food bolus has to be massaged down the length of the esophagus by peristaltic waves. You can visualize peristaltic motion by imagining the way an Earthworm moves, squeezing its body segments in a smooth wave that runs from front to back. Or you can just look at the animated gif in this Wikipedia article, if you like to visualize the lazy way (i.e. by looking at stuff ...
This article is not meant to go into depth on how to alleviate heartburn, but you might wonder what to do if you suffer from heartburn.. One theory is that heartburn is not a result a of too much HCL (stomach acid) but rather not enough. With lower than optimum acidity, food can sit in your stomach undigested and unbroken down. If it sits there for too long, it can cause the upper esophageal sphincter that connects the stomach and the esophagus to loosen up, allowing some of the acidic content of the stomach to move up and cause heartburn. I sometimes suggest to my clients to try HCL supplement before meals to see it leads to better digestion and the moving food down the digestive tract. Many times, adding stomach acid, not reducing it, is what relieves heartburn. Consult with a dietitian or health care practitioner whos familiar with digestive issues before taking supplements as they are not recommended for people ulcers, gastritis, or other conditions. If you choose to try HCL supplement on ...

When you have never experienced heartburn before, becoming pregnant can be a RUDE awakening . Heartburn occurs when the valve between the stomach and the esophagus (upper esophageal sphincter) are unable to prevent stomach acid from passing upwards. Normally, this can happen due to too much, or too little stomach acid, as stomach acid is a trigger keeping the valve closed. During pregnancy, the hormone progesterone causes the valve to relax, which can increase the frequency of acid splashing backwards, and causing burning symptoms in the chest. In the third trimester, heartburn is more common due to the size of the uterus and its ability to put pressure on the stomach. Due to these reasons, many women will experience heartburn for their ENTIRE pregnancy. Thankfully, there are some things that can provide relief for your heartburn including : ...
The EndoFLIP (Endolumenal Functional Lumen Imaging Probe, Crospon Inc, Galway, Ireland) device uses the technique of impedance planimetry to evaluate dimensions and distensibility of the upper and lower esophageal sphincter. The null hypotheses for this study were that EndoFLIP variables would be stable between anesthestic episodes and would not be affected by body position when evaluating the upper and lower esophageal sphincters in healthy dogs. During each of three consecutive general anesthesia episodes administered to eight healthy adult research colony dogs with a standardized protocol, the EndoFLIP catheter was positioned to measure cross-sectional area, intrabag pressure, upper and lower esophageal sphincter length at two different balloon fill volumes (30 and 40 mL) and two body positions (lateral and dorsal recumbency ...

The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel: The fourth novel by Martel is touted as an allegory that asks questions about loss, faith, suffering, and love. Sweeping from the 1600s to the present through three intersecting stories, this novel will no doubt be combed for comparison to his blockbuster - nine million copies and still selling strong - Life of Pi. And Martel will, no doubt, carry the comparisons well: "Once Im in my little studio…theres nothing here but my current novel," he told The Globe and Mail. "Im neither aware of the success of Life of Pi nor the sometimes very negative reviews Beatrice and Virgil got. Thats all on the outside." (Claire). The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee: Weve been awaiting Chees sophomore novel, and here it finally is!

A cottonballs throw from New Mexico, this tiny town delights with gorgeous vistas, homespun shopping, great bird-watching, and even better people-watching. Dina Mishev takes us down to Duncan.. Classy digsTucked alongside the Gila River, surrounded by cotton and chile fields, and ringed by peaks, Duncan is like a green jewel in the desert. Thats what drew Deborah Mendelsohn, a former Hollywood producer, here in 2005, when the town was still more shabby than chic, dotted with abandoned buildings. But she discovered that despite its appearance, Duncan had a distinct energy-the 700-some quirky locals possessed a serious passion for the place. The enthusiasm was contagious. Mendelsohn bought and restored an old hotel, creating an airy interior and a bright dining room. Today, the refurbished Simpson Hotel welcomes guests with a breakfast menu starring seasonal delicacies, such as a Southwest-style vegetable torte. You can admire its robust toy collection and backyard goat too. Meanwhile, Hilda ...
L.S. solutions from Stockton on March 19, 2008 Pediatricians do all the incorrect points to newborns: they used to give them silver nitrate drops within their eyes at birth(in order to avoid Gonhorrea) which produced the kids acquire miopia later in life (As outlined by Dr. Mendelsohn, the best pediatrician at any time!) (I do not know when they still do it, they absolutely sure did it to my more mature girls, the two now with miopia); they tub them by using a terrible chemical cleaning soap, they get them from the mom, they provide them with Hepatitis B pictures with a ton of mercury on them which later on gives kids autism (like my son) - because of the autism epidemic, nowdays, numerous drs. are inquiring you very first now, or your signature to use this horrible shot; and many are applying another horrible vit ...
After ferreting out the truth about ultrasound over the years, Dr. Mendelsohn received copies of documents researching the procedure, which anyone may receive by writing WHO Publications Center, 49 Sheridan Ave., Albany, NY 12210, asking for "Environmental Health Criteria 22: Ultrasound." Experiments cited in these documents indicated reduced fetal weight and reduced fetal organ weight in animals who received ultrasound. Researchers are noticing a small but definite reduction in newborn birth rate among human infants exposed to ultrasound. The immune systems of laboratory animals exposed to the procedure are said to be affected. It also affects the blood platelets which allow the blood to clot. This could lead to problems with circulation because of traveling blood clots. Changes in the structure and composition of cells, including genetic material, has been suspected. In experiments with animals, these changes have resulted in defective embryos with a variety of problems. Researchers postulate ...

Pressure of the lower esophageal sphincter(LES) was measured simultaneously with esophagealtransmucosal potential difference(PD) in conscious healthy rabbits by using a rapid pull-through tech-nique. The effects of acrpuncturing Zusanli point with different hand--skills on both of them wereobserved. The results showed that none of the five hand--skills for acupuncturing Zusanli point haddirect effect on esophageal PD, but all significantly (p0. 01) increased the LES pressure and itsfunctional length and the strongest effect could be produced by lifting and thrusting together with rapidrotating of the needle. The findings of this experiment suggested that this hand--skill for acupunctur-ing Zusanli point should be chosen clinically for the treatment of reflux esophagitis.
The specific aim of this study is to validate the pharyngeal constriction ration, a surrogate measure of pharyngeal strength on fluoroscopy by comparing it with simultaneous pharyngeal manometry. Combined videofluoroscopic swallowing studies with pharyngeal manometry are commonly used in the evaluation of dysphagia. However, no published study has compared the results of simultaneous pharyngeal manometry with objective timing and displacement measures on videofluoroscopy. These objective measures, such as the pharyngeal constriction ratio, were developed here at UCD and are not yet routinely used by other practitioners. A secondary aim of this study will be to corroborate recent data in the literature suggesting that the presence of feeding tube through the upper esophageal sphincter does not affect the oropharyngeal phase of deglutition. This topic is currently under hot debate in the speech language pathology realm and has important implications for the evaluation of hospitalized patients with ...
The esophagus is involved in the processes of swallowing and peristalsis to move substances from the mouth to the stomach. The swallowing food begins in the mouth and continues with the contraction of skeletal muscles in the pharynx and esophagus. The upper esophageal sphincter dilates to permit the swallowed substance to enter the esophagus. From this point, waves of muscle contraction called peristalsis move food toward the stomach. In peristalsis, regions of the esophagus closer to the stomach open to permit food to pass through while the region just above the food contracts to push the food onward. Peristalsis works so well that food can be swallowed even while the body is lying down, upside down, or even in zero-gravity.. A final function of the esophagus is its participation in the vomiting reflex to void the contents of the stomach. Peristalsis is reversed in the esophagus during vomiting to forcefully remove toxic or pathogen-laden food from the body.. Prepared by Tim Taylor, Anatomy and ...
The esophagus presents an excellent window for visualization of surrounding structures in the mediastinum. present nomenclature divides the mediastinum into three parts: the upper section (upper esophageal sphincter to aortic arch), middle (aortic arch to subcarinal region, just distal to the azy-gos vein), and lower (subcarinal region to cardia). Figure 3 demonstrates paraesophageal structures and organs. The trachea is seen only as an air column; thus its wall cannot be delineated. Lymph nodes may be visible along the length of the esophagus, even in normal individuals. They may be especially pronounced in the subcarinal region. peri-aortic tissue is seen alongside the distal esophagus.. Lymph nodes can be identified in the posterior mediastinum, retroperitoneum, and celiac regions. posterior mediastinal lymph nodes are predominantly left-sided and communicate with the para-aortic lymph nodes of the abdomen; hence thorough evaluation of the celiac region is important. Additionally, metastases ...

The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of using extrinsic laryngeal muscle stimulation to elevate the larynx in a manner similar to that which occurs during normal swallowing. This research will also determine whether laryngeal elevation will open the upper esophageal sphincter to assist with entry of the bolus into the esophagus. This protocol includes studies in normal volunteers and patients with swallowing disorders. The outcome of this study will be relevant to future use of neuromuscular stimulation for laryngeal elevation in patients with pharyngeal dysphagia.... ...
Although a relative newcomer to global prize giving - the Dan David Foundation didnt begin awarding prizes until 2002 - the awards have quickly gained prestige in the international community. Winners include geneticist Sydney Brenner, cosmologist John Bahcall, materials scientist George Whitesides and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Clearly, Mendelsohn is in notable company.. Mendelsohn won both for his research, including discoveries of how growth factors regulate the proliferation of cancer cells, as well as his stewardship of M.D. Anderson. His career has not been without controversy, but Mendelsohn emerged from serving as a member of Enrons board of directors as well as the ImClone scandal with his reputation intact.. In my personal experiences with him, he has shown a great facility for discussing a wide variety of topics, often at a greater depth than one might expect from someone with so many administrative duties.

Well, xenomorphs (from those movies) incubate in the stomach, but when its ready to leave it just starts chewing its way out. It really doesnt have a clue what the shortest route is and really doesnt care. Keep in mind that given the incubation orientation (head curled over body, mouth towards hosts lower esophageal sphincter) it kind of makes sense that most of the creatures move upwards and out. What I dont get is why they generally come through the sternum or rib cage, but Im betting its a movie thing. ...

For numerous infant and childhood conditions it may often be more appropriate to treat the parents anxiety than the pediatric complaint. The fever-phobia that parents have and the fear that any symptom requires immediate treatment is a common, though "curable," state of mind. Although there are certainly conditions that require medical attention, the vast majority of infant and childhood symptoms are nothing to worry about. Pediatrician Robert Mendelsohn has noted that 95% of pediatric ailments heal themselves and do not require medical care. One important recommendation for parents who want to try to treat their children is to remember to avoid treatments that suppress symptoms. Treatments that try to counteract the bodys natural defensive tendencies are generally suppressive. One example of a common home treatment for infants colic (or sometimes for childrens digestive problems, too) is the use of baking soda. Although baking soda may neutralize the stomach acids, it causes what is called ...
