Patients were included if all of the following criteria were met: heartburn and/or regurgitation once a week or more, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and/or pathologic 24-hour intraesophageal
impedance-pH monitoring, can read and speak Turkish, and aged more than 18 years.
Validation studies have verified that MII measurement has high sensitivity and accuracy for detecting intraesophageal
bolus movement and monitoring reflux [4, 5].

"Neither intragastric nor intraesophageal
pH parameters could predict the short- and long-term therapeutic outcome, which indicates that response to therapy in patients with GERD is individual and not related directly to normalization of acid reflux parameters alone," wrote the authors.
There was transient intraesophageal
stasis at the aortic notch that was elicited by a marshmallow fragment, which reproduced the dysphagia symptoms and cleared with a swallow of thin barium.
pressure sensors and impedance measuring segments were subsequently located 5 (distal), 10 (midway 2), 15 (midway 1), and 20 (proximal) cm above LES.
Complete elimination of reflux symptoms does not guarantee normalization of intraesophageal
acid reflux in patients with Barrett's esophagus.
