The article presents an appraisal of the impact of manometry on the management of children with feeding difficulties. Feeding difficulty or abnormal feeding behaviour is a common cause of failure to thrive in the neonatal period and poor weight gain in infancy and later childhood. The study has assessed the impact of oesophageal manometry on the outcome of clinical management of children with feeding difficulties. The outcome criteria were a significant gain in body mass index following interventions initiated after manometry, and a significant improvement based on clinical evaluation.
