Abstract

Recently, high-resolution oesophageal manometry was added to the armamentarium of researchers and gastroenterologists. Current studies suggest that the yield of high-resolution oesophageal manometry is higher than that of conventional pull-through manometry and is at least comparable to that of sleeve sensor manometry. Probably the most important advantage of solid-state high-resolution manometry is that it makes oesophageal manometry faster and easier to perform. Topographic plotting of high-resolution manometry signals facilitates their interpretation. It is concluded that high-resolution manometry is a promising technique for the evaluation of oesophageal motor function. Further studies will have to determine whether high-resolution manometry is superior to conventional manometry in the diagnostic work-up of patients with oesophageal symptoms
