Normal Functional Luminal Imaging Probe Panometry Findings Associate With Lack of Major Esophageal Motility Disorder on High-Resolution Manometry.

Alexandra J Baumann, Erica N Donnan, Joseph R Triggs, Wenjun Kou, Jacqueline Prescott, Alex Decorrevont, Emily Dorian, Peter J Kahrilas, John E Pandolfino, Dustin A Carlson,

BACKGROUND & AIMS:A normal esophageal response to distension on functional luminal imaging probe (FLIP) panometry during endoscopy might indicate normal esophageal motor function. We aimed to investigate the correlation of normal FLIP panometry findings with esophageal high-resolution manometry (HRM) and outcomes of discrepant patients. METHODS:We performed a retrospective study using ... Read more >>
