Interrogation of esophagogastric junction barrier function using the esophagogastric junction contractile integral: an observational cohort study.

The esophagogastric junction contractile integral (EGJ-CI), designed similar to distal contractile integral (DCI), has been proposed as a metric to evaluate EGJ barrier function. We determined normative values and evaluated EGJ-CI in predicting esophageal acid exposure time (AET) and symptomatic outcome in this observational cohort study. High-resolution… CONTINUE READING
