Reproducibility of the rapid pull-through technique for categorizing lower esophageal sphincter pressure.

Abstract

Duplicate measurements of basal lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure using a triple-lumen catheter and the rapid pull-through technique (RPT) were performed in 250 consecutive patients to determine their reproducibility for categorizing LES pressures as normal, hypertensive, or hypotensive. For all subjects, mean LES pressure did not differ for the two… (More)
