OBJECTIVES:The pattern of reflux in the most distal esophagus of asymptomatic individuals is largely unknown. Using a wireless technique we compared the degree and the pattern of acid reflux just above the squamocolumnar junction (SCJ) with that measured at the conventional level for pH monitoring.METHODS:Fifty-three asymptomatic volunteers underwent endoscopy with transoral placement of two pH recording capsules, one immediately above and one 6 cm above the SCJ. Ambulatory pH monitoring was… CONTINUE READING
