Sessions from ACG 2020 tackled persistent GERD, acute colonic pseudo-obstruction

Coverage of the American College of Gastroenterology's annual meeting in the February ACP Internist and ACP Hospitalist offered advice on managing patients with persistent gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and recognizing acute colonic pseudo-obstruction.


Experts addressed GI topics related to both inpatient and outpatient care at ACG 2020, the American College of Gastroenterology's annual meeting, held virtually last October.

Conference coverage in the February ACP Internist focused on patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that is not responding to proton-pump inhibitors or GERD symptoms without an objective GERD diagnosis. On the inpatient side, a story in the February ACP Hospitalist offered advice on recognizing acute colonic pseudo-obstruction and avoiding serious consequences.
