ABSTRACT
Three techniques of lower oesophageal sphincter pressure (LOSP) measurement exist: rapid pull through (RPT), station pull through (SEPT), and dent sleeve (DS). Only RPT and SPT have been compared suggesting SPT to be more reproducible, but all 3 have not been compared previously. Measurements were carried out twice: at start and end of monometry study. No method is particularly reproducible but DS and RPT show least variability. SPT gives consistently higher measurements than both DS and RPT while measurements by DS and RPT were not significantly different.
