Features of Motor and Secretory Disorders in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease in Young Patients with Concomitant Obesity

O.A. Oparin, D.O. Korniienko


The Objective of the Study. To identify the features of the motor and secretory disorders in gastroesophageal reflux disease, depending on the presence of concomitant obesity in young people.
Materials and Results of the Study. The study included 50 patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease, they we divided into 2 groups, depending on the presence of concomitant obesity. The first group included patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and concomitant obesity, the second one — patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease without comorbidity. Control group consisted of 20 apparently healthy individuals. The study found that patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and concomitant obesity had severe motor disturbances which were evaluated using ultrasound study (there were evaluated the diameter of esophageal hiatus, the thickness of esophageal wall, esophageal lumen width in the lower third, as well as the presence or absence of reflux), and were in close correlation with specific clinical manifestations of gastroesophageal reflux disease, measured by GERDQ questionnaires (international questionnaires for the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease) compared with the group of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease without comorbidity.
