    BACKGROUND: The postprandial increase of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) results largely from an increase in the rate of transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (TLESRs). Gastric distension is believed to be the most important contributing factor. The aim of this study was to determine...

    AIM: High-resolution manometry (HRM) provides a spatially enhanced, dynamic representation of the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) high-pressure zone making it possible to isolate the crural diaphragm (CD) contraction from expiratory lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure. This study compared...
