While 43 % of those surveyed, with some antireflux medications after their surgery of respondents reported patients had no tests to check the recurrence of GERD. ‘Some reports have said that the resumption of antireflux medications indicates that surgery is an error, but that’s not necessarily true, ‘Rattner says. ‘The symptoms of GERD are so non-specific and patients again may take medication on their own, if patients, these drugs have been continued to be for for the presence of reflux most GERD have not shown of them.
In May 2008, Archives of Surgery Surgeon reports from Massachusetts General Hospital in their survey of nearly 200 patients who had laparoscopic antireflux surgery at the MGH for a period of 10 years. Specifically designed to assess GERD symptoms, the survey produced near-normal quality-of-life scores from most respondents. Also suggest very happy with their long-term outcomes – Our results indicate that , in appropriate selected patients, antireflux surgery is an excellent treatment alternative that excellent results for the quality of life of the patient provides, says David Rattner, head of General and Gastrointestinal Surgery at MGH and senior author of the report.. Massachusetts General Hospital, founded in 1811, is the original and largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School The MGH conducts the largest hospital – research program in the United States, with an annual research budget of more than $ 500.This study appears in the January Edition 2005 of American Journal of Roentgenology.. Was About which three-year study period, bacterial populations versatile considerably and appeared to to adapt well positioned to the environment in the digestive tract to the mice. ‘The bacteria colonized better in these mice by the end of the study than the beginning,’Parker said having more than With more than a three-fold increase in the density the bacterial in the intestinal the end of the experiment ‘We see a number of evolutionary adjustments that in the bacteria, including the a possible increase in resistance apoptosis,’said Parker.
‘This for the first time the growth of bacteria which was monitored for a period of years of in an unbelievably complex environment. ‘.. The investigators used colony in mice in a big plastic bubble raised, called out an isolator that was completely sterile, is missing even a single bacterium. They introduced one type bacteria in mouse colony, but rapidly in different types of mutates new bacteria which more resistant interior of mice than the original one bacteria had were.
