Gastro-esophageal reflux disease is characterized by abnormal reflux and a multifactorial path. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between age and maximum lumen diameter of the distal oesophcigus in patients with gastro-aesophageal reflux disease. This study demonstrated a change in oesophageal diameter with advancing age. These changes were most apparent distally, aproximateiy 7cm from the lower oesophageal sphincter. The study also highlights that oesophagecil morphologymay play a role in the pathogenesis of gastro-oesophageal reulux disease.
