• Opioid Treatment and Excessive Alcohol Consumption Are Associated With Esophagogastric Junction Disorders

    Clouse plots of high-resolution impedance manometry of the different esophagogastric junction outflow obstruction (EGJOO) disorders with achalasia type I (A), type II (B), type III (C), and EGJOO Chicago classification version 3.0 (D). Clouse plot of a single water swallow of a patient with an EGJOO in the standardized test meal (E). Clouse plot of the same patient during a rice test meal (F). The y-axis corresponds to the distance from proximal to distal esophagus, the x-axis constitutes the time. The local pressure at a given time-point is color coded (low pressure = blue, intermediate pressure = green/yellow, and high pressure = red/purple).

  • Degranulated Eosinophils Contain More Fine Nerve Fibers in the Duodenal Mucosa of Patients With Functional Dyspepsia

    Microscopic grading of duodenal eosinophilia. (A) Grade of microscopic duodenitis in the functional dyspepsia (FD) group (×100 high power field [HPF]). (B) Semi-quantitative grading of eosinophilic degranulation in specimens stained immunohistochemically for major basic protein (×400 HPF).

  • High-resolution Anorectal Manometry in the Diagnosis of Functional Defecation Disorder in Patients With Functional Constipation: A Retrospective Cohort Study

    The measurement of residual pressure. The patients were asked to defecate for more than 20 seconds for 3 times and the balloon was not inflated. The residual pressure was measured during this process and it means the sphincter pressure over a specified duration (usually set to 3 seconds) for which recto-anal pressure differential is a maximum.

  • High-resolution Mapping of Hyperglycemia-induced Gastric Slow Wave Dysrhythmias

    Setup and an example baseline recording prior to induced hyperglycemia. (A) Two arrays of electrodes (8 × 16; 4 mm inter-electrode spacing) were placed on the anterior and posterior gastric serosa. (B) Activation maps were reconstructed from the recordings with each color band representing the area covered by 1 second of propagation. (C) Example electrograms selected from 8 anterior channels (a1–a8) and 8 posterior channels (p1–p8), with the dashed lines indicating the direction of propagation of a single cycle of slow waves.
