    Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) has been implicated in the aetiology of lung disease. Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients have a high incidence of GOR symptoms with demonstrable episodes of oesophageal acidification. We studied 24-hour ambulatory tracheal and oesophageal pH in 11 CF patients with GOR...

    This article presents information on a study which states that acid is not the cause of recurrent symptoms following anti-reflux surgery. Anti-reflux surgery is effective in relieving symptoms in 85% of patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Surgery also resolves pathological...

The study aims were to investigate the role of oesophageal clearance in patients with GORD and consider the effects of oesophageal lumen diameter and hiatus hernias (HH). Patients with...

    Background: In addition to acid gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR), non-acid GOR (pH > 4) may be clinically relevant in neurologically impaired children. However, standard pH metry can only detect the former. We have therefore used the pH independant technique of intraluminal electrical impedance...

    BACKGROUND: Although gastro-oesophageal reflux is a recognised cause of chronic cough, the role of oesophageal dysmotility is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of abnormal oesophageal motility in a selected group of patients with chronic cough. METHODS: Oesophageal...

    To date, most concepts on the frequency of gastrooesophageal reflux episodes and the efficiency of the antireflux barrier have been based on inferences derived from measurement of oesophageal pH. The development of intraluminal impedance monitoring has highlighted the fact that pH monitoring...

    Aims: To determine the value of squamous mucosal histology in the assessment of patients with gastrooesophageal reflux symptoms. Methods: Sixty six patients with reflux symptoms underwent endoscopy with oesophageal biopsy, manometry, and 24 hour oesophageal pH testing. The following histological...

    In patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), oesophageal and extraoesophageal symptoms are traditionally attributed to increased contact time beiween the mucosa and refluxates. However, the volume of reflux may be important by increasing the total amount of highly concentrated...
