Among their topics are fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux disease, endoscopic therapy for Barrett's esophagus: who and how, whether there is a role for endoscopic therapy in achalasia
, the minimally invasive management of benign esophageal tumors and cysts, and the contemporary management of iatrogenic and non-iatrogenic esophageal injuries.
Triple A (Allgrove) syndrome, an autosomal recessive disease is characterized by achalasia
, alacrimia and ACTH-resistant adrenal failure with progressive neurological syndrome including central, peripheral and autonomic nervous system impairment, and mild mental retardation.
IW-1701 has been shown in non-clinical studies to modulate the nitric oxide/soluble guanylate cyclase/cyclic guanosine monophosphate (NO/sGC/cGMP) signaling pathway, which is believed to be implicated in achalasia
and sickle cell disease, and is being investigated for its potential to treat multiple aspects of sickle cell disease pathophysiology, including red blood cell sickling, decreased blood flow, and vascular inflammation.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, alkali or acid ingestion, achalasia
due to unknown aetiology are considered as main causative factors in the genesis of benign lesions.
This study also included rather rare specific benign lesions that produce significant increases in the wall thickness, including eosinophilic gastritis, achalasia
of the cardia, hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, TB, and sarcoidosis.
Objective: The study was carried out to ascertain the outcome of laparoscopic modified Heller's myotomy for achalasia
cardia and to determine the morbidity associated with it.
Objective: To evaluate the results of single session of endoscopic balloon dilation with 30mm pneumatic balloon for achalasia
, over a prolonged ([greater than or equal to]12 months) observation period.
He had a history of laparoscopic fundoplication and myotomy for achalasia
ten years ago.
is characterised by oesophageal aperistalsis and increased resting pressure with partial or incomplete relaxation of the lower oesophageal sphincter.
Osophagogastroduodenal (EGD) graphy was taken for achalasia
, alacrima, adrenal failure (AAA) syndrome and ranitidine treatment was initiated because moderate reflux was found.
Case of Achalasia
of the Cardia relieved by Operation.
Eventually she was told she suffered from a condition called achalasia
, an auto immune disease, for which there is no known cause and which affects around 6,000 people in the UK.
