Determination of a Possible Association of Fundic Gland Polyps With the Use of Proton Pump Inhibitor Drugs
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Prospective
Number of patients with fundic gland polyps and PPI use that have a higher gastric pH
We aim to examine clinical parameters, including history of PPI use and fasting gastrin levels, as well as histologic characteristics (particularly the presence of ECL-cell hyperplasia) of patients found to have fundic gland polyps during endoscopy. We believe there is a correlation between fundic gland polyps of the stomach and use of proton pump inhibiter medications.
