    Barrett's oesophagus is the major risk factor for oesophageal adenocarcinoma and ablative techniques may reduce the chances of its development. Photodynamic therapy using aminolaevulinic acid has been shown to effectively achieve mucosal ablation with good long term response, but it is unknown...

    Introduction: Manometry can detect peristalsis while pH sensors can show acid clearance. Flow and volume clearance can be detected by changes in impedance pairs of electrodes. This ambulatory study uses pressure and impedance to determine on a temporal basis the motility patterns during a reflux...

    Introduction Persistent reflux symptoms occur in a subgroup of patients following antireflux surgery. These symptoms can be due failure of the antireflux barrier. GI physiology studies are performed to evaluate the OGJ function and anatomy in these patients. Recent studies with high resolution...

    Oesophageal clearance is an important mechanism of defence against gastro-oesophageal reftux disease (GORD). 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...

    Drug-induced injury of the oesophagus is a common cause of oesophageal complaints. ‘Pill-induced’ oesophagitis is associated with the ingestion of certain drugs and accounts for many cases of erosive oesophagitis. To date, more than 70 drugs have been reported to induce oesophageal...
