[Effects of rehabilitation on neurohumoral regulation of the lower esophageal sphincter in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

The effects of acupuncture or SHF electromagnetic field in combination with iodine-bromine baths on neurohumoral regulation of the lower esophageal sphincter were studied in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. DMW-therapy in combination with iodine-bromine baths lowered initially elevated level of the vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) while acupuncture reduced initially elevated levels of gastrin and VIP. These results show pathogenetic validity of using acupuncture or SHF electromagnetic field in combination with iodine-bromine baths in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease of the first or second degree.
