Investigation of pharyngeal swallowing function using high-resolution manometry.


OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS This study aimed to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high-resolution manometry system, and to establish normal values of swallowing pressures along the velopharynx and upper esophagus. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. METHODS Thirty-three asymptomatic adult Japanese controls were studied. A solid-state high-resolution… (More)
