    Long-term complications after laparoscopic gastric banding (LAGB) are frequent, leading to reoperations for a substantial number of patients. It is not known whether esophageal motility or the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) play a role in the development of complications. The results of...

    Purpose. To determine intragastric pressure threshold for inducing gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) opening in normal control subjects with and without hiatal hernia, and in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Methods. This study was performed in 13 normal volunteers, 5 volunteers with...

    Kusano et al. developed a questionnaire for the evaluation of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), the frequency scale for the symptoms of GERD (FSSG). The FSSG is now widely used in Japan. We investigated the relationship between FSSG results and cardiac sphincter endoscopic findings. The...

    Introduction: The pathophysiology of gastroesophageal reflux disease is multifactorial, where esophageal motility is one of the factors implicated in its genesis. However, there is still no consensus on the existence of an association between esophageal dysmotility and hiatal hernia...

    Background: Increased esophagogastric junction distensibility occurs with esophageal reflux. The EndoFLIP is now available as a clinical tool to measure this. Control data for patients without reflux has to date only been available for a handful of patients evaluated under sedation during...

    The function of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) has historically been elucidated by two major manometric methods: the one concentrating on static parameters including resting pressure, overall length, and intraabdominal length, and the other concentrating on the episodic loss of sphincter...

    A hiatal hernia is defined as the protrusion of intra-abdominal organs through a dilated esophageal hiatus. The esophageal hiatus and its function have been described extensively, but an exact anatomical determination of its normal size is lacking. It seems important to define the normal size,...

    OBJECTIVES:Although globus sensation is a common symptom, its pathogenesis is poorly defined. The aim of this study was to quantify the timing and magnitude of respiratory variation in upper esophageal sphincter (UES) pressure with high-resolution manometry (HRM) in patients with globus...

    Background. A high prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERI)) in asthmatic patients has been reported from North America and Europe. However, only a few data from Asia are available. This study evaluated the incidence of abnormal gastroesophageal reflux (GER) in asthmatic patients in...
