Abstract

The evaluation of patients with gastro-esophageal reflux by prolonged pH measurements and by manometric studies is now well established (Johnson and De-Meester 1974; DeMeester 1985; Atkinson and Van Gelder 1978; DeMeester and Johnson 1975). Limitations in 24-h pH monitoring in the esophagus have already been recognised (DeMeester 1985).
