New EndoFLIP paper published in Gastroenterology

Tuesday 22nd May 2012

A new paper describing the use of EndoFLIP in predicting patient outcomes from Achalasia surgery has been accepted for publication in Gastroenterology. The paper Efficacy of Treatment for Patients with Achalasia Depends on the Distensibility of the Esophagogastric Junction by W.O. Rohof, D.P. Hirsch, B.F. Kessing, and G.E. Boeckxstaens, describes work performed at University Hospital Leuven to assess whether distensibility of the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) is a better and more integrated parameter than manometry measured lower esophageal sphincter (LES)  pressure for determining efficacy of treatment for patients with achalasia. The authors concluded that EGJ distensibility is impaired in patients with achalasia, and in contrast to LES pressure, is associated with esophageal emptying and clinical response, and that assessment of EGJ distensibility by EndoFLIP is a better parameter than LES pressure for evaluating efficacy of treatment for achalasia.
