+ Clinical Information
In GI Motility, the study of the esophageal body evaluates the response of the muscles to a swallow and the relaxation of the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES). The main purpose of esophageal manometry is to diagnose esophageal motility dysfunction.
Normally the muscles contract in an orderly sequence from top to bottom (peristalsis) to transport the swallowed bolus into the stomach.
Esophageal manometry can be split into three parts:
- Upper Esophageal Sphincter (UES) manometry
- Esophageal body manometry
- Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) manometry
Adding (high resolution) video capabilities to UES manometry offers ENT specialists a conclusive tool in swallow studies.
Upper Esophageal Sphincter Manometry
The assessment of the UES can be the final part of the esophageal manometry study or can be performed separately. The UES has a high resting pressure and relaxes during a swallow. The relaxation and resting pressure of the UES can be determined with a solid state pressure catheter.
Esophageal Body Manometry
Esophageal body manometry testing can be performed by measuring the pressures in the esophagus. The peristaltic contraction after a wet swallow and the coordination with LES relaxation can be investigated.
Anorectal manometry is a diagnostic test performed to evaluate patients with symptoms such as constipation, fecal incontinence and pelvic/anorectal pain.
Measurements of resting pressures, pressures generated by the anal sphincters (IAS/EAS), along with recording the sensation volumes in the rectum are useful in determining the cause of fecal incontinence when it is suspected that surgery or disease has injured the nerves or muscles in the anus, or when diabetes may have resulted in impaired sensation in the rectum. Anorectal manometry testing can also be used as a treatment for fecal incontinence to retrain anal muscles to contract more forcefully.
LABORIE is passionate about bringing freedom and dignity to patients suffering from gastroenterological diseases and disorders through innovation in diagnostic and treatment options. We work with leading clinician-researchers and local universities to incorporate the most recent advancements and technical knowledge into our products while reflecting practical realities of the typical GI clinic.
