HANI, Albis et al. How to Perform and Interpret High-resolution Esophageal Manometry. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2015, vol.30, n.1, pp.74-83. ISSN 0120-9957.

The introduction of high-resolution esophageal manometry allowed physicians to identify both previously unidentified normal esophageal functions and patterns and various abnormalities. The creation of new charts of pressure patterns and the topography of esophageal pressure has led to the development of new tools for analysis and classification of esophageal motor disorders. At present, the Chicago classification is the diagnostic method of analysis used for various esophageal motor disorders. In Colombia, we see the use of high-resolution esophageal manometry growing on a daily basis. In this article we review how to perform and interpret high-resolution esophageal manometry

Keywords : Esophageal motility disorders; esophageal manometry high resolution; achalasia.
