    Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) does not close properly and stomach contents leak back, or reflux, into the esophagus. The LES is a ring of muscle at the bottom of the esophagus that acts like a valve between the esophagus and stomach. The esophagus carries food from the mouth to the stomach.

  4. Fact Sheet: Infant Regurgitation

    826

    By: Suzanne Nelson, MD, MPH

    Regurgitation is when the stomach contents flow back up the esophagus and into the mouth. It is a type of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) – the other type being occult or silent reflux. Silent reflux is when the contents of the stomach only go part way up the esophagus. Infants tend to have more regurgitation episodes than silent episodes of GER as compared to adults.

  5. Fact Sheet: Report from IFFGD Research Award Winner: Symptoms Arising from Non-Acid Reflux in Children

    836

    By: Rachel Rosen, MD, MPH

    Because of the large public health impact of chronic respiratory disease, doctors have been searching for a cause for these high rates of disease. One factor implicated as a cause is gastroesophageal reflux (GER). Despite acid blocking medications, some patients continue to experience severe respiratory symptoms. One explanation is that patients are experiencing relux that is missed by currently available tests and that is not effectively treated by acid suppression medications. This reflux has been termed "non-acid reflux."
