Can the Stretta Procedure Heal LPR An Interview with Dr. Mark Noar how to get rid of light acne scars

I have interviewed dr. Mark noar about his experiences with the stretta therapy. Actually, this was the main reason why I wanted to talk how to get rid of light acne scars with him in the first place. However, we also ended up discussing the role of the sphincters how to get rid of light acne scars as well as ph monitoring. Part #3 – the stretta procedure for acid reflux & LPR so, let’s talk about stretta. Where does the technology come from?

The device is very elegant in its engineering, because if the needles get too hot during the procedure, the device just turns the specific needle off. It’s engineered to be extremely safe. We keep the temperature between 65 and 85 degrees celsius, which is the temperature of a cup of coffee. The device uses 5 watt, the same as an LED light bulb. It is very low energy. There’s no damage created by the device. It is just meant to stimulate the muscle. What is the difference between the stretta procedure and a how to get rid of light acne scars nissen fundoplication?

We’re trying to increase the sphincter pressure so that it’s strong enough to stop the gastric pressure from creating how to get rid of light acne scars reflux. The primary cause of reflux is that your sphincter relaxes how to get rid of light acne scars too often. Post-stretta, the number of esophageal relaxations goes down significantly in these how to get rid of light acne scars patients.

Many people, also physicians, misunderstand how stretta works. They think the stretta procedure works because it creates scar how to get rid of light acne scars tissue. Stretta works because the stimulation with energy promotes muscle growth. This has been clearly shown by a study. That’s very interesting because if I remember right, on many health information platforms it says that stretta works how to get rid of light acne scars because it builds up scar tissue.

Someone who takes medication for a couple of weeks and how to get rid of light acne scars feels great afterward doesn’t need the procedure. What is the influence of strengthening the LES on delayed how to get rid of light acne scars gastric emptying? So meaning people who have food in their stomach for how to get rid of light acne scars too long after eating.

40 percent of reflux patients have a slow-emptying stomach, called gastroparesis. That is because their LES opens up all the time. The stomach needs to press the food out into the how to get rid of light acne scars intestines. But if your LES opens up, the food is pushed into the esophagus instead. Instead of the food going down, it’s going up!

What I found out in my research though: nissen fundoplication patients who had slow-emptying stomachs associated with reflux went back to normal after how to get rid of light acne scars nissen. That’s fascinating. I think I have the same feeling with my LINX. Like there’s a sense of faster emptying.

If the LINX is working and stopping your reflux, it should have the same beneficial effect, but this has not yet been formally studied. It doesn’t matter what the mechanism is to stop the reflux. If you stop the reflux, your stomach can create pressure and move the food where how to get rid of light acne scars it belongs: into the intestines. So your emptying will be better. How can you test how well your stomach is emptying?

Of all the reflux treatments available today there are only how to get rid of light acne scars two therapies that have been demonstrated by research to stop how to get rid of light acne scars LPR. One of them is the nissen fundoplication with a 360-degree wrap. A partial fundoplication like toupet with a 270-degree wrap is not as tight, so you’re still refluxing, just less.

The other is the stretta procedure. Those two procedures are very effective in stopping reflux for how to get rid of light acne scars patients with LPR. Stretta builds muscles and the fundoplication creates an artificial tightening. What do you think about the LINX procedure?

The problem is: sometimes the body creates scar tissue around the LINX device how to get rid of light acne scars that hinders it from working correctly. For the readers who do not know the LINX: it is a magnetic device against reflux. There are several magnetic beads which are strung onto a how to get rid of light acne scars band. The goal is that those magnetic beads attract each other how to get rid of light acne scars – putting pressure on the lower esophageal sphincter to keep it how to get rid of light acne scars shut. What can go wrong with the LINX?

There is also another issue with LINX: if you look at the x-ray pictures, you’ll see the first bolus of food goes down, and it sits just above the device. When the next one comes down, it pushes the first one through. It’s kind of like playing croquet. You have to hit the first ball to make the how to get rid of light acne scars second ball go.

I personally, don’t like foreign bodies. If you’re going to have someone go in and free up how to get rid of light acne scars the tissue around your esophagus surgically, you might as well have them fix your hiatal hernia how to get rid of light acne scars and do a nissen fundoplication, because it works the best for the longest period of how to get rid of light acne scars time.

If we look at all the procedures, there are only two techniques that have 10-year data. That’s the nissen fundoplication and the stretta procedure, which are very effective upwards of 10 years – the nissen having a slight advantage over the stretta procedure. Can you combine the stretta and the nissen fundoplication?
