1. Esophageal acid exposure in upright and recumbent postures: roles of lower esophageal sphincter, esophageal contractile and transport function, hiatal hernia, age, sex, and body mass.
Match Strength: 13.440
This study aimed to assess, using multiple regression analyses, the roles of lower esophageal sphincter, esophageal contractile and transport function, hiatal hernia, age, sex, and body mass for esophageal acid exposure in upright and recumbent postures and for esophagitis. In 116 patients with reflux symptoms, acid exposure was recorded by 24-hr pH monitoring, motility manometrically, bolus transport scintigraphically, hiatal hernia and esophagitis endoscopically. In upright posture, the percentage time at pH <4 increased significantly with higher body mass index and lower distal ... Read More »

2. Biologic prosthesis reduces recurrence after laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair: a multicenter, prospective, randomized trial.
Match Strength: 9.043
OBJECTIVE: Laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair (LPEHR) is associated with a high recurrence rate. Repair with synthetic mesh lowers recurrence but can cause dysphagia and visceral erosions. This trial was designed to study the value of a biologic prosthesis, small intestinal submucosa (SIS), in LPEHR. METHODS: Patients undergoing LPEHR (n = 108) at 4 institutions were randomized to primary repair -1 degrees (n = 57) or primary repair buttressed with SIS (n = 51) using a standardized technique. The primary outcome measure was evidence of recurrent hernia (> or =2 cm) on UGI, read by a ... Read More »
