A Randomized, Controlled, Crossover Study of Sacral Nerve Stimulation for Irritable Bowel Syndrome To investigate whether sacral nerve stimulation reduces irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)-specific symptoms by a randomized, controlled, crossover study.IBS affects 3% to 22% of the population worldwide, but most patients continue to have symptoms despite treatment.Patients included from our tertiary center had diarrhea-predominant or mixed IBS, with a minimum baseline IBS symptom score (...) (Gastrointestinal Syndrome Rating Scale-IBS questionnaire) of 40 points reduced by a minimum of 30% during the percutaneous nerve evaluation before permanent implantation. Patients were randomized (1:1) to have the stimulator ON or OFF for 1 month and then the opposite for another month. Investigators and patients were not informed of the setting. IBS-specific symptoms and quality of life were assessed through bowel diaries and validated questionnaires. Primary endpoint was the IBS-specific symptom score.Twenty

A randomised trial of ondansetron for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea (IBS-D) is particularly debilitating due to urgency and episodic incontinence. Some 5-hydroxytryptamine 3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonists (5-HT3RAs) have proven effective but have serious side effects. Ondansetron, also a 5-HT3RA, has been widely used as an antiemetic with an excellent safety record for over two decades. Our aim was to assess its effectiveness

Intestinal bacteria ferment the carbohydrate, producing the only source of bodily H2, which is expelled in the breath. The pattern and degree of expelled H2 may indicate the presence of particular gastrointestinal (GI) disorders.

Evaluation of harm in the pharmacotherapy of irritable bowel syndrome Current treatment options for irritable bowel syndrome are limited and often poorly studied. A select few drugs have been studied in irritable bowel syndrome, and the number needed to treat is frequently used to assess the relative efficacy of these treatments. However, side effects are an important consideration in the clinical decision on which particular treatment to use. This study examines trials of subjects (...) with irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea and constipation who are receiving a drug intervention deemed of merit by the American College of Gastroenterology task force and compares these therapies to examine the number needed to harm using a systematic review and meta-analysis approach.Potential studies of irritable bowel syndrome treatments were identified through a search of MEDLINE (1950 to April 2011), EMBASE (1980 to April 2011), the Cochrane central register of controlled trials, and the bibliography
