Generation of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Symptoms During Esophageal Acid Infusion With Concomitant Esophageal pH Monitoring in Healthy Adults


BACKGROUND/AIMS The sensitivity of the upper and lower esophageal mucosa to acid is considered to differ. We investigated the relationship between pH changes in different sites of the esophagus and generation of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms during an acid infusion test. METHODS An acid infusion catheter was placed at 5 or 15 cm above the lower… (More)
