High-resolution manometry for the evaluation of gastric motility

This review focus on the utility of HRM for the evaluation of gastric motility. The evaluation of gastric motility has clinical implications for the study of a myriad of diseases. Disordered motility represents a spectrum of dysfunction ranging from delayed gastric emptying to abnormally rapid gastric transit. Gastric motility may be measured by a variety of methods with different efficacy and different variables that may be obtained. High-resolution manometry was created and added to the diagnostic armamentarium. The methods and outcomes for the study of proximal motility that may be useful to assess the thoracoabdominal pressure gradient, gastric filling and accommodation are described. Also, studies on antroduodenal manometry are reviewed. High-resolution manometry allows gastric manometry without technical limitations found on conventional manometry; however, studies are still on the phase of understanding the normal findings.
