Resting pressure of the lower oesophageal sphincter in Chagasic megaoesophagus



Resting pressure of the lower oesophageal sphincter in Chagasic megaoesophagus



Revista da Associacao Medica Brasileira 24(8): 269-272



The lower oesophageal sphincter in 50 Chagasic patients with megaoesophagus had an abnormally increased resting pressure, as shown by continuous withdrawal manometry.
