Gastroesophageal reflux disease. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux, is a long-term condition in which stomach contents rise up into the esophagus, resulting in either symptoms or complications. Symptoms include the taste of acid in the back of the mouth, heartburn, bad breath, chest pain, regurgitation, breathing problems, and wearing away of the teeth. Complications include esophagitis, esophageal stricture, and Barrett's esophagus.
Over the past three decades proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have been the mainstay of medical therapy for GERD. However, recently there has been an increasing awareness amongst physicians and patients regarding the side effects of the PPI class of drugs. alerts physicians to the warning signs of GERD in adult asthmatics

Gastoesophageal reflux disease is characterized by a decrease in the tone of this sphincter. In children of early age, the clinical picture of gastroesophageal reflux disease with persistent regurgitation and vomiting, which is not suppressed by traditional diet therapy, requires the elimination of the developmental abnormalities of the digestive tract (achalasia of cardia, congenital esophagus stenosis, congenital short esophagus, hernia of the esophageal aperture of the diaphragm, pyloric stenosis), myopathies, allergic and infectious inflammatory diseases. of the digestive tract.
