There is much evidence to suggest that peristaltic function is defective in esophagitis patients and that this defect may contribute to prolonged acid exposure, promoting esophageal mucosal injury. Abnormal peristalsis may also be related to the generation of reflux symptoms. We evaluated primary peristalsis and its relationship to symptoms under basal conditions and during saline and HCl perfusion in 15 symptomatic reflux patients with gross esophagitis and 15 healthy controls. In the basal… CONTINUE READING
