[Guidelines of the German Respiratory Society for Diagnosis and Treatment of Adults Suffering from Acute, Subacute and Chronic Cough].

Pneumologie 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Facharztforum Fürth.

The present 2019 S2k consensus guideline of the German Respiratory Society was written - in contrast to the predecessor more general S3 guidelines from 2004 and 2010 - for pneumologists, since 2014 the German College of General Practitioners and Family Physicians (DEGAM) published his own cough guidelines.The guideline contains 48 recommendations agreed by consensus and 16 statements, which are explained in the background text in the following nine chapters: epidemiology, physiology, classification, acute, subacute or chronic cough, diagnostics and therapy; an extra chapter was dedicated to chronic idiopathic cough. Further emphasis of the guideline is the physiology of cough in anticipation of the introduction of new drugs, as well as detailed treatises on cough triggered by affections in the upper respiratory tract or by gastroesophageal reflux.

Cough in exercise and athletes.

Pulm Pharmacol Ther 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Institut Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Québec, Université Laval, Canada.

In the general population, particularly in individuals with asthma, cough is a common symptom, often reported after exertion, although regular exercise may be associated with a reduction in the prevalence of cough. In athletes, exercise-induced cough is also a particularly frequent symptom. The main etiologies of cough in athletes are somewhat similar to non-athletes, including asthma/airway hyperresponsiveness, upper airways disorders such as allergic or non-allergic rhinitis, and exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction, although these conditions are more frequently observed in athletes.

Attitude and knowledge of Saudi community pharmacists towards use of proton pump inhibitors.

Saudi Pharm J 2019 Feb 7;27(2):225-228. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Clinical Pharmacy, King Saud University, Saudi Arabia.

Introduction: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) effectively suppress acid secretion and play an important role in peptic ulcer disease and gastroesophageal reflux disease There is a real concern about the overutilization of PPIs, which will lead to significant high cost and undesirable outcomes Despite that most of PPIs are classified as prescribed medications, yet most of their users take them without prescription in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, it was important to understand community pharmacists practice in dealing with PPIs and to evaluate their despising pattern of these medications.

Method: A cross-sectional survey-based study that was carried out between September and December 2017. Read More

Comparative Analysis of Laparoscopic Fundoplication and Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation for the Treatment of Medically Refractory GERD.

Am Surg 2018 Nov;84(11):1762-1767

We have recently introduced laparoscopic magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) combined with hiatal hernia repair for treatment of patients with medically refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). MSA is a novel surgical approach to the treatment of severe GERD, in which magnetic beads are secured around the lower esophageal sphincter, augmenting the lower esophageal sphincter function as an anti-reflux barrier. We hypothesize that patients undergoing MSA will achieve GERD relief, equal to that obtained after laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. Read More

The role of oesophageal physiological testing in the assessment of noncardiac chest pain.

Ther Adv Chronic Dis 2018 11;9(12):257-267. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

GI Services, University College London Hospital, Ground floor west, 250 Euston Road, London, NW1 2 PG, London, UK.

Oesophageal physiology testing plays an important role in the diagnosis of noncardiac chest pain (NCCP) after cardiac, structural and mucosal abnormalities have been ruled out. Endoscopy can establish the presence of structural causes of chest pain such as cancer, oesophageal webs and diverticula. Even if macroscopically normal, eosinophilic oesophagitis is a common cause of chest pain and needs to be ruled out with an adequate biopsy regimen. Read More

Problems of nociception in gastroesophageal reflux disease: diagnostics and treatment of irritated oesophagus.

Ter Arkh 2018 Aug;90(8):118-124

SM-clinic, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

The following factors of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) pathogenesis are addressed in the abstract: activation of nociceptors, hyperexpression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and increase of functional activity of immune competent cells. The current classification of GERD is given which is based on identification of 4 phenotypes of the disease according to diagnostic criteria and prognosis of treatment effectiveness. Importance of pH-impedance monitoring in GERD diagnostics is demonstrated based on its primary significance for identification of reflux nature and determination of relationship between GERD symptoms and reflux.

Ter Arkh 2018 Feb;90(2):19-23

A.I. Evdokimov Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, Ministry of Health of Russia, Moscow, Russia.

Aim: A generalized analysis of changes in functional activity of macrophages on the basis of phagocytic activity, cytokine profile, changes in the level of expression of surface markers characteristic of pro- or anti-inflammatory phenotype of the cells when exposed to reluctate.

Materials And Methods: Developed in vitro model of co-peritoneal macrophages of mice With57/BL6 (n=65) and reluctate patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD; n=65) having different pH values (three group comparison). Took into account the standard criteria phagocytic ability (absorption Staphylococcus aureus 9198, light microscopy), secretory activity (cytokine profile Th1/Th2, flow cytometry) and receptor characterization of macrophages (expression of CD25/80/163/206, flow cytometry).

Endoscopic surveillance or ablation for Barrett's esophagus?

Transl Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 6;3:102. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA 98195, USA.

The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is rising and the only known precursor of this disease is Barrett's esophagus (BE). EAC mortality remains high, prompting strategies to screen individuals with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms to identify BE and conduct surveillance in order to detect neoplasia at a stage that is amenable to cure. The effectiveness of endoscopic eradication therapy has been improving with reduced harms, yet it is unclear which patients will benefit from this procedure. Read More

Does anti-reflux surgery disrupt the pathway of Barrett's esophagus progression to cancer?

Transl Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 5;3:101. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Reflux Medical, Vienna, Austria.

In patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE), anti-reflux surgery aims to sustainable control reflux symptoms and heal reflux induced esophageal mucosal inflammation and prevent progression of BE to adenocarcinoma. There is growing evidence that beside gastric acid, bile salts in refluxed duodenal juice are responsible for the development and progression of BE. However, the pathogenesis of BE progression and the metaplasia-dysplasia-carcinoma sequence of the adenocarcinoma of the esophagus (EAC) is multifactorial and occurs over long natural time course.

The Association Between Helicobacter Pylori Infection and Liver and Biliary Tract Disorders.

Curr Health Sci J 2018 Apr-Jun;44(2):186-191. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

University of Oradea, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Helicobacter Pylori (HP) persistently colonizes the stomach in about 50% of the globe population and it is the main risk factor for peptic ulcer, as well as for gastric adenocarcinoma and MALT gastric lymphoma. The treatment for HP revolutionized the management of the peptic ulcer disease, providing permanent healing in many cases. Preventing colonization of HP would be the primary prevention of gastric malignancy and peptic ulceration. Read More
