Improving the analysis of esophageal acid exposure by a new parameter: area under H+


OBJECTIVES:We aimed to compare the data provided by 24-h continuous esophageal pH monitoring in a group of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) to those from a group of healthy volunteers using both conventional parameters and calculated area under the curve of hydrogen ion activity (AUH+), a new value that describes the true acid exposure… (More)
