Abstract

In our experience two-probe 24-h home esophagogastric pH-monitoring has shown to be very effective in identifying acid and non-acid gastroesophageal reflux (GER): almost 50% of patients resulted in being affected by abnormal non-acid reflux (particularly the “alkalacid” GER 4>pH<7 resulting from the mixing of gastric and duodenal contents) [1]. Moreover, gastric fundus percentage total reflux time with pH≧4 was higher in GER patients than in controls [1].
