Determining success after achalasia therapy is an important aspect of treating this disease. Esophageal manometry, scintigraphy, and barium esophagram are the most commonly employed techniques. Recent data suggest that barium esophagram may be most practical and informative compared to manometry and scintigraphy in predicting treatment success in achalasia patients after therapy.
