Clinical characteristics of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) in Japanese population remain unclear, and its treatment outcome is suboptimal. The objectives of this study were to evaluate Japanese patients with LPR symptoms using hypopharyngeal multichannel intraluminal impedance (HMII) and to assess the outcome of antireflux surgery (ARS). Subjects included patients who had LPR symptoms for > 12 weeks or laryngoscopic findings suggestive of LPR and underwent laryngoscopy and esophageal testing… CONTINUE READING
