Background and aimThe clinical significance of minimal changes in non-erosive reflux disease (NERD) is controversial. Multichannel intraluminal impedance–pH (MII-pH) monitoring enables classification of NERD. The aim of this study was to evaluate associations between endoscopic findings and functional assessment via MII-pH monitoring in patients with proton-pump inhibitor (PPI)-refractory NERD.MethodsThirty-four PPI-refractory NERD patients were retrospectively analyzed. On the basis of the MII… CONTINUE READING
