Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the incidence of the acid reflux and its relationship to the oesophageal motility and to clinic symptoms. Recording of oesophageal manometry under basal and stimulating conditions obtained from 30 patients GERD and 10 healthy controls were assessed. Manometric results were analyzed for the occurrence of failed primary peristalsis, for the occurrence of peristaltic dysfunctions or for hypotensive LES pressure. Motor abnormalities found in the body of the oesophagus during simulated oesophageal reflux were described. The AA. found that there is not a sure correlation between the occurrence of peristaltic dysfunctions and hypotensive LES such as was not possible to find a direct relationship between peristaltic disorders and oesophagitis degree or symptoms.
