Utility of High-resolution Esophageal Manometry in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Summarized HREM applications in GERD
• Determine mechanisms of GERD
• GERD diagnosis in conjunction with reflux monitoring
• Pursue the etiology of PPI-refractory GERD symptoms
• Localize the upper border of LES prior to catheter based reflux monitoring
• Before anti-reflux surgery
• Symptomatic patients after anti-reflux surgery

HREM, high-resolution esophageal manometry; GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease; PPI, proton pump inhibitor; LES, lower esophageal sphincter.
