Esophageal Acid clearance: more volume-dependent than motility-dependent in healthy piglets.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS The present study investigates manometrically in healthy piglets whether esophageal clearance after distension with different volumes of acid is volume-dependent. METHODS Sedated, non-intubated piglets (n = 22) underwent stationary manometry of the esophagus with a 4-probe perfused assembly after successive injection of 1, 2, and 3 mL of… (More)
