Wireless pH monitoring is a significant advance for intraluminal pH recording. It will provide more meaningful data for evaluation of patients and, hopefully, more discriminative diagnosis.

    Introduction: Self-reported reflux symptoms do not always correspond to pathologic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). We evaluated whether GERD-related symptoms in the self-reported Mayo-GERD questionnaire (GERDQ) were correlated with current gold standard definitions of...

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a disease predominantly seen in the West but there is a rising trend in Asia. Ambulatory 24-hour catheter-based pH monitoring has been the de facto gold standard test for GERD that correlates symptoms with acid reflux episodes. However, drawbacks such as...

    Objectives: Oesophageal ph monitoring is a useful test for the diagnosis of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) but has some limitations related to the nasopharyngeal electrode. Recently, a telemetric catheter free system (CFS) (Bravo; Medtronic) was developed. The aim of this study was to...

    Objective: Diagnosis of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is still challenging. Recently a diagnostic device for pH values in the aerosolized environment of the pharynx has been introduced (Dx-pH). We evaluated results of Dx-pH with objective criteria of pH/impedance monitoring (MII) and subjective...

    The article presents a comparison between the cycloplegic and non-cycloplegic approaches in retinoscopy for infants. One technique of the non-cycloplegic approach or dry retinoscopy is the static retinoscopy under which patients look at a distance target while the fixating eye is given adequate...
