“…Although the pH-manometry findings corresponded to the suggested referral indication group in a high percentage of cases, a mixed pattern and even opposing results were occasionally found. The potential to make such a variety of diagnoses by means of one examination is an important advantage of combined pH-manometry (16). This is supported by our finding that in about 40% of these patients both reflux and SEMD were present.…”

“…The method for measuring esophageal body motility has already been previously described by our and other research groups (8,9,16,27). Before starting the 24-h measurement, the patients also had wet swallows, which were observed online.…”

“…Therefore, in GERD patients, swallowed solids might further influence an already impaired esophageal emptying by allowing an increased amount of gastric contents, refluxing through a relaxed LES for longer periods, not to be promptly rejected back into the stomach. Finally, it has been reported that esophageal motility becomes discoordinated during sleep [8], and this may further aggravate an already impaired esophageal clearance in GERD patients. Apparently, all the aforementioned circadian alterations in esophageal motor function cannot be detected by the standard stationary manometry.…”

“…As opposed to the stationary technique, ambulatory 24-hour esophageal manometry allows continuous recording of esophageal body contractions during normal daily activities, thus providing accurate information about effectiveness of esophageal peristalsis and detecting the precise incidence of complete, dropped, interrupted or mixed contractions [8, 9]. The method assessed esophageal motor activity at all positions and circadian situations, including normal meals.…”
