BACKGROUND Exposure to acid and duodeno-gastro-oesophageal reflux (DGOR) both increase with oesophageal lesions in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). It is unknown whether DGOR exposure is an independent risk factor for oesophageal lesions. A multivariate analysis was performed on the relationship between oesophageal lesions and demographics and acid and DGOR exposure. METHODS In 422 patients with suspected GORD, upper endoscopy, oesophageal manometry, and pH and DGOR monitoring were… CONTINUE READING
