Esophageal Manometry

Esophageal manometry is a diagnostic tool used to rule out problems with your esophagus and lower esophageal sphincter. Esophagus is the tube that connects your throat to your stomach. The lower esophageal sphincter is a muscle that prevents acid and stomach contents from moving backwards from the stomach to the esophagus.

Procedure

  • A numbing cream will be applied in your nose to make the insertion of the tube less uncomfortable.
  • A thin pressure sensitive tube will be inserted through your nose, down to the esophagus and into your stomach.
  • Your doctor will then pull back the tube slowly into your esophagus and you will be asked to swallow at this time.
  • Sensors are located at several points of the tube that measure pressure of your muscle contractions.
  • The tube is then removed after the tests are completed.
  • Esophageal manometry takes about 15-30 minutes.

Benefits

  • Esophageal manometry helps in identifying any issues with your swallowing or with lower esophageal sphincter.

Risks

  • Slight discomfort might be experienced after the test.
  • Nosebleeds.
  • Sore throat and/or stuffy nose.
