The Montreal Definition and Classification of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: A Global Evidence-Based Consensus
Novel aspects of the new definition include a patient-centered approach that is independent of endoscopic findings, subclassification of the disease into discrete syndrome, and the recognition of laryngitis, cough, asthma, and dental erosions as possible GERD syndromes. Expand
The Chicago Classification of esophageal motility disorders, v3.0
The Chicago Classification (CC) of esophageal motility disorders, utilizing an algorithmic scheme to analyze clinical high‐resolution manometry (HRM) studies, has gained acceptance worldwide.
An evidence-based appraisal of reflux disease management — the Genval Workshop Report
This report summarises conclusions from an evidence-based workshop which evaluated major clinical strategies for the management of the full spectrum of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, with anExpand
American Gastroenterological Association Medical Position Statement on the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Institute Medical Position Panel consisted of the authors of the technical review, an insurance provider representative, a community-based gastroenterologist, and the Chair of the AGA Institute Clinical Practice and Quality Management Committee.

Chicago classification criteria of esophageal motility disorders defined in high resolution esophageal pressure topography 1
The Chicago Classification of esophageal motility has been an evolutionary process, molded first by published evidence pertinent to the clinical interpretation of high resolution manometry (HRM) studies and secondarily by group experience when suitable evidence is lacking. Expand
Clinical esophageal pH recording: a technical review for practice guideline development.
Abstract Our present concept of peptic esophagitis dates back to 1935, when Winkelstein suggested that gastric secretions were the cause of mucosal damage observed in peptic esophagitis. 1Expand
Ambulatory Esophageal pH Monitoring Using a Wireless System
The wireless Bravo pH System successfully recorded esophageal acid exposure in 96% of the patients during a 24-h period and in 89% of subjects for >36 h, slightly higher than observed with conventional systems. Expand
Effect of swallowed bolus variables on oral and pharyngeal phases of swallowing.
Specific variables of swallowing are affected significantly by the variables of the swallowed bolus, such as volume and viscosity, and the study findings have implications about the neural control mechanisms that govern swallowing as well as about the diagnosis and treatment of patients with abnormal oral-pharyngeal swallowing.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux monitoring: review and consensus report on detection and definitions of acid, non-acid, and gas reflux
To date, most concepts on the frequency of gastro-oesophageal reflux episodes and the efficiency of the antireflux barrier have been based on inferences derived from measurement of oesophageal pH.Expand
Esophageal peristaltic dysfunction in peptic esophagitis.
It is concluded that peristaltic dysfunction occurs in a substantial minority of patients with peptic esophagitis and could contribute to increased esophageal exposure to refluxed acid material. Expand
