This article focuses on a study related to manometric visualisation of lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS) at flexible endoscopy. Identification of LOS by visual inspection at endoscopy is unreliable and often impossible. Knowledge of the sphincter position detected by station pull through monometry can not be effectively utilized for endoscopic therapeutic procedures as is normally carried out by nasal intubation. Endoscopic monometry is a valid and reliable technique which can be carried out safely and quickly. Identification of LOS at flexible endoscopy may have potential diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
