Clinical evaluation of different fluid-filled systems for oesophageal manometry
1979 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology, ISSN 0036-5521, Vol. 14, no 1, 1-5 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In a clinical study of oesophageal manometry with fluid-filled catheters, both a non-perfused system and a perfused system with a syringe pump have been compared to a system with a low-compliance perfusion pump, which served as a reference. Significantly lower values of motility amplitudes, motility derivatives, and partly of LES pressures, and a time delay of up to 0.5 sec of the amplitude maximum were obtained with the non-perfused system and the system with a syringe pump in comparison to the low-compliance system. Since the oesophageal function can be erroneously evaluated by use of a non-perfused system or a perfused system with a syringe pump, such systems cannot be recommended for clinical use.
