Dolore addominale ricorrente

RECURRENT ABDOMINAL PAIN

  • In 75% of children in secondary schools at least one episode of AP in previous years

  • In 10-25% the pain is recurrent

  • Age of onset: 4-15 years, with a peak around 10 yrs

  • Organic cause in only about 10% of them

Dolore addominale ricorrente

RECURRENT ABDOMINAL PAIN

  • A diagnosis of functional AP should be made in a positive fashion

  • Negative tests do not reassure the patient, but rather reinforce a medical model of disease

  • Minimal diagnostic investigations


Irritable bowel syndrome ibs

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME (IBS)

Disorders which may mimic IBS:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Celiac Disease

  • Carbohydrate Malabsorption

  • Infection (e.g. giardia)

  • Intestinal malformation

  • Neoplasias

  • Genito-urinary tract alteration

  • Allergic Bowel Disease


Dolore addominale ricorrente

DISEASES ASSOCIATED WITH DYSPEPSIA IN CHILDREN

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux

  • Eosinophilic Esophagitis

  • Gastritis

  • Gastric or Duodenal Ulcer

  • Duodenitis

  • Gall bladder disease

  • Hepatic Disease

  • Pancreatic Disease

POST-INFECTIOUS FUNCTIONAL GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDERS IN CHILDREN

  • 36% of exposed children Abdominal Pain

  • 87% Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • 24% Functional Dyspepsia

  • 56% reported onset of pain following Acute Gastroenteritis (AGE)

Objective To compare history and symptoms at initial presentation of patients with

chronic abdominal pain (CAP) and Crohn’s disease (CD).

Study design:Patients with abdominal pain for at least 1 month and no evidence

of organic disease were compared with patients diagnosed with CD.

Results Patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders had more stressors

(P<0.001), were more likely to have a positive family history of irritable bowel

syndrome, reflux, vomiting or constipation (P < .05); Anemia, hematochezia, and

weight loss were most predictive of CD (cumulative sensitivity of 94%).

J Pediatr 2013;162:783-7


Ibs in children psychosocial history

IBS IN CHILDREN: PSYCHOSOCIAL HISTORY

  • Evidence for stressful psychological stimuliMarital-Financial problems

    Death or illnesses

    Family history for IBS, IBD, PUD, Migraine

  • Reinforcement of pain behavior by environmental factors

    Attention at time of pain

    Absence from school on days of pain

“FAMILIAL AGGREGATION IN CHILDREN AFFECTED BY FUNCTIONAL GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDERS”

  • Prevalence of FGIDs in

    • the group of parents of children with FGIDs: 64%

    • the group of parents of children without FGIDs: 30.7%

  • Association between the children’s type of GI disorder and their parents’disorder in 35/103 (33.9%)

  • Anxiety was significally higher in the group of children with FGIDs (27.0%, vs 3, 8.3%)

Having a mother with FGID was a stronger predictor (OR=3.5%) of FGID than having a father with FGIDs

RECURRENT ABDOMINAL PAIN

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION

  • Abdominal pressure tenderness

  • Chronic constipation ???


Dolore addominale ricorrente

  • Occult constipation defined as ‘abdominal pain disappearing with laxative treatment and not reappearing within a 6 month follow up Period was found in 92 patients (46 %) affectedd by RAP.

  • Of these, 18 had considerable relief of pain when treated for a somatic cause but experienced complete relief only after laxative measures;

  • Sixty-six % (28/42) children with functional dyspepsia

    were affected by functional constipation associated

    with delayed gastric emptying

  • Normalization of bowel habit improved gastric

    emptying as well as dyspeptic symptoms

Boccia et al. Clinical Gastroenterol Hepatol 2008


Dolore addominale ricorrente

Total gastric emptying time evaluated at entry (T0) and at 3 months of follow-up (T3) in dyspeptic patients with functional constipation (FC yes) who received lactulose and in dyspeptic patients without functional constipation (FC no)

  • Constipation-IBS is the prevalent subtype in children, with a higher frequency in girls.

  • In boys, diarrhea-IBS is the most common subtype.

It is important to acquire knowledge about IBS subtypes to design clinical trials that may eventually shed new light on suptype-specific approaches to this condition.

LABORATORY TESTS

  • Complete blood count

  • C-reactive protein

  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate

  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel

  • Urinalysis

  • Stool studies for bacteria and parasites

  • Breath hydrogen test or trial lactose-free diet

  • Antitransglutaminase antibodies

  • Fecal calprotectin

ESR altered in 90% of children affected by IBD

FECAL CALPROTECTIN

Patients affected by IBD had high levels of fecalcalprotectin compared with healthy children (p < 0.0001) and children presenting with recurrent abdominal pain (p < 0.0001)

Acta Paediatr. 2002;91(1):45-50.

  • Sensibility and Specificity

  • “Intestinal ESR” for the screening of IBD

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2002;14 (8):841-5

Conclusions:

Fecal calprotectin could be useful in differentiating the functional recurrent abdominal pain from the organic recurrent abdominal pain

Canani RB, Miele E, Staiano A et al. Dig Liver Dis 2008; 40 (7): 547-53

  • There is no evidence:

    • On the predictive value of blood tests with or without alarm signs

    • To suggest that the use of US examination of the abdomen and pelvis in the absence of alarm symptoms has a significant yields of organic disease

Value Of Abdominal Sonography In The Assessment Of Children With Abdominal Pain (AP)

  • In children with AP without alarm symptoms: abnormalities in less than 1%

  • In children with AP with alarm symptoms: abnormalities in 11%

J Clin Ultrasound 1998; 26: 397-400

There is little evidence that

the use of endoscopy with biopsy or

esophageal pH monitoring has a significant yield

of organic disease in the

absence of alarm symptoms

  • Based on the symptoms, endoscopic procedures were considered inappropriate if the Rome criteria had been met and appropriate if they had not been met.

  • Of the 1624 procedures, 26% were considered inappropriate.

  • Inappropriate procedures decreased significantly after publication of the Rome II criteria.

Miele E et al. Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2010; 32:582–590

  • Persistent right upper or right lower quadrant pain predicted a negative diagnostic yield of OGD.

  • As regards colonoscopy, persistent right upper or right lower quadrant pain and gastrointestinal blood loss (haematochezia, occult lower GI bleeding) remained independently associated with an increased diagnostic yield

    The use of the criteria for functional gastrointestinal disorders makes a significant positive impact, they should reduce unnecessary paediatric GI endoscopy.

Association between helicobacter pylori and gastrointestinal symptoms in children

ASSOCIATION BETWEEN HELICOBACTER PYLORI AND GASTROINTESTINAL SYMPTOMS IN CHILDREN

Meta-analysis including 14 cross-sectional studies

No association was found between RAP and H pylori infection and conflicting evidence for an association between epigastric pain and H pylori infection

Evidence for an association between unspecified abdominal pain was found, but this finding could not be confirmed in children seen in primary care

Pediatric Patients With Dyspepsia Have Chronic Symptoms, Anxiety, and Lower Quality of Life as Adolescents and Adults

Rippel SW et al. Gastroenterology. 2012 Apr;142(4):754-61

Pediatric patients (ages 8-16 yrs) with dyspeptic symptoms, re-evaluated 5-15 yrs later, both with and without abnormal esophageal histology, had more dyspeptic symptoms, greater functional disability, and poorer health-related quality of life compared with controls, in adolescence and young adulthood

Histology alone is not adequate to discriminate between organic and functional dyspepsia

Anxiety and depression could develop as a consequence of living with chronic dyspeptic symptoms.
