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

Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Humanitas Research Hospital, Milan, Italy.

Modern medicine provides almost infinite diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities if compared to the past. As a result, patients undergo a multiplication of tests and therapies, which in turn may trigger further tests, often based on physicians' attitudes or beliefs, which are not always evidence-based. The Italian Association of Hospital Gastroenterologists and Endoscopists (AIGO) adhered to the Choosing Wisely Campaign to promote an informed, evidence-based approach to gastroenterological problems.

Deep learning for chest radiograph diagnosis: A retrospective comparison of the CheXNeXt algorithm to practicing radiologists.

PLoS Med 2018 Nov 20;15(11):e1002686. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Department of Radiology, Stanford University, Stanford, California, United States of America.

Background: Chest radiograph interpretation is critical for the detection of thoracic diseases, including tuberculosis and lung cancer, which affect millions of people worldwide each year. This time-consuming task typically requires expert radiologists to read the images, leading to fatigue-based diagnostic error and lack of diagnostic expertise in areas of the world where radiologists are not available. Recently, deep learning approaches have been able to achieve expert-level performance in medical image interpretation tasks, powered by large network architectures and fueled by the emergence of large labeled datasets.

The Relationship Between Hiatal Hernia and Cricopharyngeus Muscle Dysfunction.

Dysphagia 2018 Nov 7. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Center for Voice and Swallowing, University of California, Davis, 2521 Stockton Blvd., Suite 7200, Sacramento, CA, 95817, USA.

Although the precise etiology of cricopharyngeus muscle (CPM) dysfunction (CPMD) is uncertain, many have hypothesized that a hypertrophied CPM may develop as a protective compensation against gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the association between CPMD and the presence of hiatal hernia (HH) in an attempt to elucidate the potential etiology of CPMD. The charts of individuals who underwent video fluoroscopic esophagrams between 01/01/14 and 10/30/16 were reviewed from an electronic database. Read More

Impact of vagus nerve integrity testing on surgical management in patients with previous operations with potential risk of vagal injury.

Surg Endosc 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Division of GI/Minimally Invasive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, 2160 South First Avenue, Maywood, IL, 60153, USA.

Background: Thoracic and foregut operations can cause vagal nerve injury resulting in delayed gastric emptying or gastroparesis. However, the cause of gastroparesis in these patients is not always from a vagal injury. We hypothesize that vagal nerve integrity (VNI) testing may better define who has vagal nerve dysfunction.
