Ten patients with progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS) and esophageal symptoms (group 1) and 10 control subjects were studied. Esophageal electromanometry using the intermittent pull-through technique and catheter perfusion with distilled water were performed in all patients and individuals. The variables studied were pressure amplitude in the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) (mmHg) and deglutition wave amplitude (mmHg at 5, 10 and 15 cm above LES). In PSS patients, the average LES pressure was… CONTINUE READING
