OBJECTIVE After swallowing, the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) needs a certain amount of time to return from maximum pressure to the resting condition. Disturbances of sphincter function not only during the swallowing process but also in this phase of pressure restitution may lead to globus sensation or dysphagia. Since UES pressures do not decrease in a(More)
A prolonged phase of increased pressure in the upper esophageal sphinc-ter (UES) after swallowing might result in globus sensation. Therefore, it is important to evaluate restitution times of the UES in order to distinguish physiologic from impaired swallow associated activities. Estimating the event t where the UES has returned to its resting pressure(More)
