EMJ Gastroenterology 11 [Supplement 4] . 2022

Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2022 was held both in San Diego, California, USA, and virtually. The meeting featured cutting-edge research and education in the field of gastroenterology, of which eight treatment-related presentations are summarised in this article. Two presentations covered recent patient surveys. The first highlighted that many patients with chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) remain unsatisfied with the control of their symptoms, while the second highlighted that most patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) experience reflux symptoms despite proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy.
