Are you there?

Expert:  Coachrobmd replied 2 years ago.
Pre' means before and' Pyloric' is the name of the valve on top of stomach. The pyloric valve functions as a trapdoor to keep food and gastric juices in the stomach. The esophagus (and mouth, which is part of the GI Tract) would be Pre-Pyloric.
That's the definition. As to what it is referring to in YOUR case, I'm not 100% clear without additional information. If you were endoscoped, perhaps the doctor found something he found abnormal. In that case, biopsies could have been taken.
If a stricture was dilated, then the cause would have to be determined. I believe, and this is not certain, that you likely had reflux into the lower part of the food tube (esophagus) and this caused a stricture that was dilated. This should have been biopsied as Barrett's esophagus, which is this disorder, is pre-cancerous.

Dr.
Would H Pylori been detected or does other tests need to be done to find this bacteria?
Expert:  Coachrobmd replied 2 years ago.
Sorry it took so long, but I was out of the office.

H. Pylori is a special test that takes a variety of forms. It can be tested for during endoscopy, by blood samples, and in the stool. It can also be tested for with a urea breath test, although biopsy of visualized lesions is the best test available.

You can read about them here:

If positive, the treatment is pretty standard and effective.

I'll get an email notifying me that you want more assistance. I'm always happy to help. It's best to have the first line state "FOR COACHROBMD ONLY" so other experts won't become involved. If I don't hear back from you, hopefully everything turned out well.
