Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The advent of multichannel intraluminal impedance-pH (MII-pH) monitoring has generated interest in the role of weakly acidic reflux in persistent symptoms in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Emerging evidence suggests that MII-pH may be superior to conventional pH testing under certain circumstances in the detection of reflux and expert opinions have been put forth advocating a central role for pH impedance monitoring in the detection of GERD. However the clinical relevance of an impedance-based diagnosis of reflux and its impact on clinically relevant outcomes is less clear. This review appraises the role of weakly acidic reflux in health and in GERD patients and the clinical utility of detecting weakly acidic reflux in the management of GERD.
