Esophageal Motor Dysfunctions in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Therapeutic Perspectives.

J Neurogastroenterol Motil 2019 10;25(4):499-507

Department of Gastroenterology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical Colleg e, Beijing, China.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a very common disease, and the prevalence in the general population has recently increased. GERD is a chronic relapsing disease associated with motility disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Several factors are implicated in GERD, including hypotensive lower esophageal sphincter, frequent transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxation, esophageal hypersensitivity, reduced resistance of the esophageal mucosa against the refluxed contents, ineffective esophageal motility, abnormal bolus transport, deficits initiating secondary peristalsis, abnormal response to multiple rapid swallowing, and hiatal hernia.

Use of computed tomography volumetric measurements to predict operative techniques in paraesophageal hernia repair.

Surg Endosc 2020 Apr 12;34(4):1785-1794. Epub 2019 Aug 12.

Division of Gastrointestinal and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Carolinas Medical Center, 1025 Morehead Medical Drive, Suite 300, Charlotte, NC, 28204, USA.

Background: Despite advances in diagnostic imaging capabilities, little information exists concerning the impact of physical dimensions of a paraesophageal hernia (PEH) on intraoperative decision making. The authors hypothesized that computerized volumetric analysis and multidimensional visualization to measure hiatal defect area (HDA) and intrathoracic hernia sac volume (HSV) would correlate to operative findings and required surgical techniques performed.

Methods: Using volumetric analysis software (Aquarius iNtuition, TeraRecon, Inc), HDA and HSV were measured in PEH patients with preoperative computerized tomography (CT) scans, and used to predict the likelihood of intraoperative variables. Read More

Galloway-Mowat syndrome in Taiwan: OSGEP mutation and unique clinical phenotype.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2018 12 17;13(1):226. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Pediatrics, MacKay Children's Hospital, No. 92, Sec. 2, Chung-Shan North Road, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Galloway-Mowat syndrome (GAMOS) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by the combination of glomerulopathy with early-onset nephrotic syndrome and microcephaly with central nervous system anomalies. Given its clinical heterogeneity, GAMOS is believed to be a genetically heterogenous group of disorders. Recently, it has been reported that mutations in KEOPS-encoding genes, including the OSGEP gene, were responsible for GAMOS. Read More

Digestion 2019 27;99(2):185-190. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Division of Gastroenterological Surgery, Tokai University, Oiso, Japan.

Background: The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma in Europe and the United States rapidly increased from the latter half of the 1970s and exceeded that of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in the latter half of the 1990s, currently accounting for approximately 60% of all esophageal carcinomas. Recently, its incidence has also increased in Japan, raising concerns that it will follow a course similar to that in Europe and the United States.

Summary: The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma in Japan was about 2% until the 1990s, but in recent years, it has risen to 6. Read More

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

PLoS Med 2018 11 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.

Homozygous splicing mutation in NUP133 causes Galloway-Mowat syndrome.

Ann Neurol 2018 12;84(6):814-828

Department of Human Genetics, Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine, Yokohama.

Objective: Galloway-Mowat syndrome (GAMOS) is a neural and renal disorder, characterized by microcephaly, brain anomalies, and early onset nephrotic syndrome. Biallelic mutations in WDR73 and the 4 subunit genes of the KEOPS complex are reported to cause GAMOS. Furthermore, an identical homozygous NUP107 (nucleoporin 107kDa) mutation was identified in 4 GAMOS-like families, although biallelic NUP107 mutations were originally identified in steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome.
