Esophageal Manometry

In GI Motility the study of the esophageal body evaluates the response of the muscles to a swallow and the relaxation of the LES.

Normally the muscles contract in an orderly sequence from top to bottom (peristalsis) in order to transport the swallowed bolus into the stomach.

The major purpose of esophageal manometry is to diagnose esophageal motility dysfunction.

Esophageal manometry can be split up in three parts:

  • Upper esophageal sphincter (UES) manometry
  • Esophageal body manometry
  • Lower esophageal sphincter (LES) manometry
Adding (high resolution) Video capabilities to an UES manometry offers ENT specialists a conclusive tool in Swallow studies.
