esophageal manometry (esophageal motility study) is a method of diagnosis, during which measured the force reduction (pressure) of the esophagus muscles and their interaction when swallowing.Virtually all of the esophageal diseases have similar symptoms, it is very complicated diagnosis.Esophageal motility study helps medical professionals to differentiate the disease.
reduce esophageal muscle disorders often cause chest pain and dysphagia (swallowing disorder).Contractile activity of the esophagus is estimated by various methods (impedancemetry, radiography, scintigraphy of the esophagus), but the most informative method of diagnosis is considered manometry.The procedure makes it possible to evaluate the motor function directly.With it, the doctor evaluates the function of the pharynx, upper esophageal sphincter, esophageal body and lower esophageal sphincter.

After esophageal manometry doctors do not prescribe any restrictions in the diet.Discomfort in the throat, which may arise after the examination, pass quickly and independently.
Sometimes esophageal manometry can cause complications such as:
Indications for esophageal manometry are:
esophageal manometry has the following contraindications:
esophageal manometry requires the patient's pre-treatment.On the eve of the study (after midnight) the patient is strictly forbidden to take food and liquid.If the test is regularly taking certain medications, the day before they should drink a minimum of water.In addition, prior esophageal motility study should not take sedative medications, analgesic (pain relievers) and antispasmodic drugs.
key to the success of the esophageal motility study is considered to be outreach to patients.The medical specialist is obliged to tell the patient about the safety of the study and during the procedure, as well as to warn about the possible complications.
Immediately prior esophageal motility study esophageal mucosa anesthetized with lidocaine (in the form of a spray) to suppress the gag reflex.
