The patients were subjected to esophageal manometry
. For manometry, overnight fasting was advised.
Aperistalsis on esophageal manometry

In esophageal manometry
studies, the pressure difference at lower esophageal sphincter (LES) was found to be 13,4 cm [H.sub.2]O in Group 1, 31.8 cm [H.sub.2]O in Group 2 and 4.3 cm[H.sub.2]O in Group 3.

showed normal lower- and upper-esophageal sphincter pressure, but the wave patterns in the body of the esophagus were both peristaltic and non-peristaltic, with amplitudes at or above the upper limits of normal.
Study Design: Thirty-two consecutive Rett patients with a mean (range) age of 6.2 (2.3-14) years with prior history of feeding problems underwent esophageal manometry
. Lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure and percent relaxation, mean peak esophageal body contractions, and percent of swallows with abnormal peristalsis were quantified.
Clinical symptoms in esophageal achalasia are nonspecific; definitive diagnosis requires assessment with barium swallow exam and, in some cases, esophageal manometry
. In barium swallow, the esophagus appears markedly dilated, the lower esophageal sphincter opens sporadically and, therefore, the barium contrast moves very slowly into the stomach.
 Esophageal manometry
may be indicated prior to antireflux surgery.
