BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine which motility data of patients with noncardiac chest pain (NCCP) differ from those of controls on the basis of long-term manometry and to evaluate the coexistence of motility disorders and pathologic acid reflux. Further, motility disorders were tested as to whether they were secondary to acid reflux. METHODS Combined long-term pH/manometry was performed in 95 patients with NCCP, using one pH-electrode and two pressure transducers. The… CONTINUE READING
