Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE or EoE) is an emerging disease that is increasingly being recognized among pediatricians, internists, allergist, gastroenterologist (GI specialists), and other physicians. It is a condition that affects the esophagus and has been rising in incidence over the past decade.
EE Symptoms may include:
- Poor weight gain (failure to thrive)
- Refusal to eat
- Vomiting often occurring with meals
- Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
- Pain or discomfort with swallowing (odynophagia)
- Food becoming lodged within the esophagus (food impaction)
A VERY INTERESTING READ
A central component of the workup of eosinophilic esophagitis (EE or EoE) is the allergy evaluation. A number of studies have demonstrated that allergies when children with EE who have been placed on a diet of only a hypoallergenic elemental formula, in almost all cases they have rapid resolution of their symptoms, and normalization of their esophageal biopsies. This indicates that food allergies appear to be the main cause of this disease.
Although elemental formula diets are highly effective, they can be quite challenging to stay on, so the role of the allergist is to try to identify which food allergens may be triggering a patient’s disease so that they can be removed from the diet. There are 3 main ways in which food allergies can be detected in EE.
– Skin prick testing
– Blood allergy testing (eg. RAST)
– Atopy patch testing

The incidence of constipation among children varies between 7 and 30 percent depending on the country. A full 40 percent develop symptoms already during the first year of life and these often persist for a long time. Many children with constipation have continued problems as teens and adults.

Non-Operative Correction for Long-Gap Esophageal Atresia
Boston Children’s Hospital
About 1000 infants a year in the states are born with their esophagus disconnected, which is called Esophageal Atresia (EA). The standard operation for esophageal atresia is Foker process, which requires several thoracotomies for placing traction sutures on esophageal ends, followed by primary anastomosis. There have been attempts to develop non-operative method for correcting esophageal atresia, especially by using magnetic force. Hendren et al. explored electromagnetic bougienage method to correct long gap esophageal atresia. Zaritzky et al. presented a method of magnetic compression anastomosis, which took advantage of large attracting force between two rare-earth permanent magnets.
In our research, a non-operative correction method for long-gap esophageal atresia is proposed. A magnetic-tipped catheter was designed for bougienage and compression anastomosis. The magnetic tip comprises syringe mechanism with an outer barrel, which functions as a fluidic stand-off. The pressure of the fluid could be measured externally so as to estimate the tip force. The catheter moves back and forth by friction drive (long stroke), and the syringe mechanism at the tip also generates more displacement (short stroke).
A pair of the magnetic catheter is put into proximal and distal esophageal pouches respectively. They apply cycling stretching force on esophagus to stimulate it to grow. Once the esophagus grows in sufficient amount, the fluid in the magnetic syringe could be drawn off for magnetic compression anastomosis; the large force between two magnets squeezes the esophageal tissue, necrosis and regeneration of the sandwiched tissue leading to the compression anastomosis.
