|| ABSTRACT Background: Esophageal manometry is mandatory for localization of lower esophageal sphincter (LES) in patients undergoing ambulatory esophageal pH-metry for proper positioning of the pH-sensing catheter. Manometry not only gives the location of LES but also provides its tone in terms of basal lower esophageal sphincter pressure (BLESP) in mm Hg. Aims and Objectives: To study the LES pressures in cases of gastroesophageal reflux disease and to evaluate its significance by determiningdoi:10.5455/ijmsph.2015.0312201411 fatcat:hil7tx7nw5brhfj45nt77sa5mq
