Title : The prospective study of coca-cola’s clinical effects on gastric phytobezoars
Objective: To inspect the clinical effects of Coca-Cola on gastric phytobezoars which formed in different periods. Methods: 150 patients suffering from gastric phytobezoars (diagnosed by gastroscopy or abdominal CT) were divided into control and intervention group according to the random number list and each group was further subdivided into 3 groups (Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3) according to the phytobezoars’ formation time. All patients in intervention group dieted Coca-Cola whereas patients in control group received the emergently gastric fragmentation. All data was analyzed by SPSS 17.0.
Results: 100% complete dissolution rate of gastric phytobezoars occurred in intervention group 1 and 2, 32.00% complete dissolution rate in intervention group 3; The gastric phytobezoars in intervention group 3 were slightly smaller but significantly softer than before and the following endoscopic fragmentation time and medical expense were significantly different between intervention group 3 and control group 3 (fragmentation time15.33±12.47 min VS 35.43±10.40 min, medical expense 441.60±327.56 RMB VS 2416.79±1545.68 RMB, both P<0.01). The medical expense between intervention group and control group were significant (medical expense 22.72±4.15 RMB VS 1329.48±984.38 RMB in Group 1, medical expense 34.46±5.67 RMB VS 1656.39±642.70 RMB in Group 2, both P<0.01); The difference between the control group 1 and control group 2 was insignificant, the difference between the intervention group 1 and intervention group 2 was also insignificant. Conclusion: The formation time was vital in many aspects of phytobezoars, such as hardness, dissolution rate, expense and so on. Dieting Coca-Cola in time in patients suffering from gastric phytobezoars has significant effects including 94.10 % complete resolution rate, soften phytobezoars and shorter operation time, less medical expense as well as the decreased pain of the patients.
Audience take Away Notes:
- The audience will be able to witness the miracle effects of Coca Cola in gastric phytobezoars of atypical cases.
- “Cola-lysis” can help the patients suffering from bezoars in the simplest way.
- The different endoscopic images of phytozoars in different period.
- The audience can know the possible mechanism of Coca Cola.
