Mitomycin-C – A Breakthrough for Esophageal Strictures- Prospective Study at a Tertiary Care Center

Pak Pediatr J 2016; 40(1): 59-63

Pakistan Pediatric Journal

Introduction: Esophageal stricture is a common and horrible complication of corrosive ingestion. Injury incurred by the corrosive and repeated therapeutic dilations; followed by healing, results in fibrosis and scarring and ultimately recurrence. Mitomycin-C is an anti-neoplastic and anti fibroblast agent with potential to decrease fibrosis and has shown favorable results of in reducing scar formation after stricture dilation. Materials & Methods: This Interventional Case Control Study was carried out in the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology & Nutrition at The Children’s Hospital & Institute of Child Health, Lahore. Post-caustic esophageal stricture patients presenting in year 2013, were included in Mitomycin-C group. They were compared with a control group including patients of post-corrosive esophageal stricture presenting in year 2012. All patients underwent endoscopic balloon dilatations. Outcomes in terms of symptomatic relief and numbers of dilatations required were compared between the two groups. Results: Total 81 patients (51 male, 30 female) were included in study. Out of these; 38 patients were in Mitomycin-C group, while 43 were in control group. In Mitomycin-C group, 1.6 dilatations per patient were done; while in control group 2.67 dilatations per patient were done (P value 0.026). Minimum asymptomatic interval between dilatations was increased in Mitomycin-C group (P-value 0.00). Conclusion: Application of topical Mitomycin-C after balloon dilation of post-corrosive esophageal stricture results in significantly reduced number of dilation sessions required and increases the asymptomatic period.

Celiac disease; efficacy of probiotics in children.

Professional Med J 2016;23(7):807-811.

The Professional Medical Journal

ABSTRACT… Objectives: Probiotics are alive organisms which confer health benefit when taken at an appropriate dosage. This study was done to determine the efficacy of probiotics in decreasing the frequency of diarrhea in children with celiac disease. Study Design: Randomized controlled trial. Setting: Department of Pediatrics/DHQ Allied Hospital, Faisalabad. Period: November 2011 to October 2012. Methods: Newly diagnosed patients with CD having diarrhea were included by consecutive non-probability sampling. Patients were randomized in two groups using computer generated numbers. One group was given probiotic along with gluten free diet while other was only prescribed gluten free diet. Reduction in frequency of diarrhea in two groups was compared after a period of 28 days. Results: A total of 116 cases (58 in each group) were enrolled. Mean age was 9.11 years. The groups were similar in age and gender of patients. Comparison of efficacy of probiotics in children with CD was done with control group which revealed reduction in stools frequency to less than half in 86.21% (n=50) in probiotic group but only 62.07% (n=36) in control group. P-value was 0.00015 which shows a highly significant difference in both groups. Conclusion: Probiotics in addition to gluten free diet are highly effective in reducing the frequency of diarrhea in newly diagnosed patients with CD, in comparison with gluten free diet alone. Key words: Celiac Disease, Children, Management, Probiotic, Efficacy
