Health (London) 2017 Nov 1:1363459317742263. Epub 2017 Nov 1.

University of Tartu, Estonia.

This article uses social practice theory to examine the role of information-seeking in the maintenance of existing lifestyle and illness-related adjustments in the context of chronic illnesses. The research findings are derived from a thematic analysis of 16 semi-structured in-depth interviews with Estonian Parkinson's disease patients. The coding scheme bases on the four practice elements outlined by Schatzki (practical understandings, rules, teleological structures and general understandings) and other categories related to chronic illness self-management skills, bodily movements, daily routines and information-seeking practices.

Can patients determine the level of their dysphagia?

World J Gastroenterol 2017 Feb;23(6):1038-1043

Hafiz Hamad Ashraf, Harry Richard Dalton, Carolyn Waters, Iain Alexander Murray, Departments of Gastroenterology, Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS Trust, Truro TR1 3LJ, United Kingdom.

Aim: To determine if patients can localise dysphagia level determined endoscopically or radiologically and association of gender, age, level and pathology.

Methods: Retrospective review of consecutive patients presenting to dysphagia hotline between March 2004 and March 2015 was carried out. Demographics, clinical history and investigation findings were recorded including patient perception of obstruction level (pharyngeal, mid sternal or low sternal) was documented and the actual level of obstruction found on endoscopic or radiological examination (if any) was noted.

Endoscopic treatment of benign esophageal strictures: a literature review.

Expert Rev Gastroenterol Hepatol 2017 Jan 22;11(1):53-64. Epub 2016 Nov 22.

a Department of Digestive and Hepatobiliary Diseases , Estaing University Hospital , Clermont-Ferrand , France.

Introduction: Benign esophageal strictures arise from various etiologies and are frequently encountered. Although endoscopic dilation is still the first-line therapy, recurrent strictures do occur in approximately 10% of the cases and remains a challenge to gastroenterologists. Areas covered: A literature search was performed using PubMed and Google Scholar databases for original and review articles on endoscopic treatment of benign esophageal strictures. Read More

Effective Treatment of Symptomatic Lower Esophageal (Schatzki) Rings With Acid Suppression Therapy: Confirmed on Barium Esophagography.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2015 Dec;205(6):1182-7

2 Department of Gastroenterology, Mount Auburn Hospital, Cambridge, MA.

Objective: Symptomatic lower esophageal (Schatzki) rings are one of the most common causes of dysphagia and esophageal food impaction. Although these rings are often diagnosed fluoroscopically, patients are typically referred for dilation procedures performed by a gastroenterologist. Because these procedures are invasive and carry risks, including esophageal perforation, an alternative treatment option is needed. Read More

Abdominal compression during endoscopy (the Bolster technique) demonstrates hidden Schatzki rings (with videos).

Gastrointest Endosc 2016 May 10;83(5):1024-6. Epub 2015 Nov 10.

Tufts Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Background And Aims: Schatzki rings are found in the distal esophagus, are associated with hiatal hernias, and present with intermittent dysphagia to solid foods. They can be identified by radiology (GI series or barium swallow studies) or endoscopy. Rings are not always visualized during endoscopy in patients in whom they are suspected clinically. Read More

Acute oesophageal symptoms.

Clin Med (Lond) 2015 Oct;15(5):477-81

University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester, UK

Acute oesophageal symptoms include acute dysphagia or food bolus impaction (most commonly due to strictures, Schatzki ring and eosinophilic oesophagitis), acute chest pain with odynophagia due to oesophageal infections, motility disorders and acute oesophageal rupture (of which oesophageal intramural haematoma is a subtype). Acute full thickness oesophageal rupture carries a high mortality if not recognised early; the clinical features and conditions with which this may be confused are presented and discussed. Read More

Refractory esophageal strictures: what to do when dilation fails.

Curr Treat Options Gastroenterol 2015 Mar;13(1):47-58

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, HP: F02.618, University Medical Center, Heidelberglaan 100, 3584, CX, Utrecht, Netherlands,

Opinion Statement: Benign esophageal strictures arise from a diversity of causes, for example esophagogastric reflux, esophageal resection, radiation therapy, ablative therapy, or the ingestion of a corrosive substance. Most strictures can be treated successfully with endoscopic dilation using bougies or balloons, with only a few complications. Nonetheless, approximately one third of patients develop recurrent symptoms after dilation within the first year. Read More

Mapping of QTL for the seed storage proteins cruciferin and napin in a winter oilseed rape doubled haploid population and their inheritance in relation to other seed traits.

Theor Appl Genet 2014 May 5;127(5):1213-22. Epub 2014 Mar 5.

Department of Crop Sciences, Plant Breeding, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Von-Siebold-Str. 8, 37075, Göttingen, Germany.

Key Message: Cruciferin (cru) and napin (nap) were negatively correlated and the cru/nap ratio was closely negative correlated with glucosinolate content indicating a link between the two biosynthetic pathways. Canola-type oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.) is an economically important oilseed crop in temperate zones. Read More

Mapping of QTL for seed dormancy in a winter oilseed rape doubled haploid population.

Theor Appl Genet 2013 Sep 20;126(9):2405-15. Epub 2013 Jun 20.

Plant Breeding Division, Department of Crop Sciences, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Von-Siebold-Strasse 8, Göttingen, Germany.

Following winter oilseed rape cultivation, considerable numbers of volunteer oilseed rape plants may occur in subsequent years in following crops. The appearance of volunteer oilseed rape plants is based on the capability of the seeds to become secondary dormant and to survive in this stage for many years in the soil. Genetic reduction of secondary seed dormancy in oilseed rape could provide a means to reduce the frequency of volunteer plants and especially the dispersal of transgenic oilseed rape. Read More

Endoscopic management of difficult or recurrent esophageal strictures.

Am J Gastroenterol 2011 Dec 18;106(12):2080-91; quiz 2092. Epub 2011 Oct 18.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Esophageal strictures are a common problem in gastroenterological practice. In general, the management of malignant or benign esophageal strictures is different and requires a different treatment approach. In daily clinical practice, stent placement is a commonly used modality for the palliation of incurable malignant strictures causing dysphagia, whereas, if available, intraluminal brachytherapy can be considered in patients with a good performance status.

World J Gastrointest Endosc 2010 Feb;2(2):61-8

Rakesh Kochhar, Kuchhangi Suresh Poornachandra, Department of Gastroenterology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh 160012, India.

Esophageal strictures are a problem frequently encountered by gastroenterologists. Dilation has been the customary treatment for benign esophageal strictures, and dilation techniques have advanced over the years. Depending on their characteristics and the response to treatment, esophageal strictures can be classified into two types: 1, simple (Schatzki rings, webs, peptic injury, and following sclerotherapy) - these are easily amenable to dilation, with a low recurrence rate after initial treatment; and 2, complex (caused by caustic ingestion, radiation injury, anastomotic strictures, and photodynamic therapy) - these are difficult to dilate and are associated with higher recurrence rates.
