ESPGHAN recommends regular monitoring to check for reflux in patients with TOF/OA

Published: Tue, 27th November 2018, 09:00:00 AM

In the Spring 2017 edition of our newsletter, Chew, we published a summary of the guidelines that had been issued by ESPGHAN in late 2016, regarding the evaluation and treatment of gastrointestinal and nutritional complications in people born with TOF/OA. 

One of the recommendations is regular monitoring to check for the presence of acid reflux.  It also states that monitoring should take place before any decision to stop anti-acid medications, even when there appears to be no symptoms.
