Standard manometry is currently considered the gold standard for the classification of esophageal motor disorders. We compared the new technique of ambulatory 24-hour esophageal motility monitoring to standard manometry in 108 patients thought to have a primary esophageal motor disorder, assessed the esophageal motor pattern associated with spontaneous noncardiac chest pain, and studied the effect of long esophageal myotomy on circadian esophageal motor function. Standard manometry was found to… CONTINUE READING
