Simultaneous 22-h measurements of intra-oesophageal and intragastric pH were made in 22 patients with symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux (7 with peptic oesophagitis, 8 with peptic oesophageal stricture, and 7 with peptic oesophagitis and previous partial gastrectomy) to determine whether alkaline intra-oesophageal pH is a consequence of alkaline gastro-oesophageal reflux. In the three groups of patients intra-oesophageal pH was greater than 7 for 16.9 +/- 4.8%, 27.5 +/- 7.6%, and 21.0 +/- 7… CONTINUE READING
