Background/Aims The pathoetiology of functional dyspepsia remains unclear; one mechanism could be chemical gastropathy from chronic bile reflux. We aim to examine the association of bile reflux gastropathy with functional dyspepsia and identify predisposing factors. Methods In a retrospective study, patients with functional dyspepsia (Rome III) who completed symptom assessment, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, and biopsies were categorized into 3 groups; bile gastropathy (BG), non-bile gastropathy (N...

OBJECTIVES Translumbosacral neuromodulation therapy (TNT) improves symptoms of fecal incontinence (FI), but its mechanism of action is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that TNT at one or more frequency will significantly improve underlying pathophysiology of FI through modulation of ascending and/or descending signaling pathways in the gut and brain axis and anorectal sensorimotor function. MATERIALS AND METHODS We assessed afferent anorectal-cortical evoked potentials (CEP) following electrica...

Fecal incontinence (FI), the involuntary passage of stool, is common and can markedly impair the quality of life. Among patients who fail initial options (pads or protective devices, bowel modifying agents, and pelvic floor exercises), the options are pelvic floor biofeedback (BIO), perianal injection with bulking agents (INJ), and sacral nerve electrical stimulation (SNS), which have not been subjected to head-to-head comparisons. This study will compare the safety and efficacy of BIO and INJ f...

BACKGROUND Biofeedback therapy is useful for treatment of fecal incontinence (FI), but is not widely available and labor intensive. We investigated if home biofeedback therapy (HBT) is non-inferior to office biofeedback therapy (OBT). METHODS Patients with FI (≥1 episode/week) were randomized to HBT or OBT for 6 weeks. HBT was performed daily using novel device that provided resistance training and electrical stimulation with voice-guided instructions. OBT consisted of six weekly sessions. Both ...

BACKGROUND Chronic constipation is a common, heterogeneous disorder with multiple symptoms and pathophysiological mechanisms. Patients are often referred to a gastroenterology provider after laxatives fail. However, there is limited knowledge of the spectrum and management of constipation disorders. AIM To discuss the latest understanding of the spectrum of constipation disorders, tools for identifying a pathophysiologic-based diagnosis in the specialist setting, treatment options and the patien...
