24 hours pHmetry
The Digitrapper® pH-Z system is a catheter that combines measurements of pH and electrical impedance, and provides total monitoring of reflux in the esophagus, and distinguishes between acid and non acid reflux.
It is possible to evaluate how many reflux episodes are present in our patient, and how long every episode last.
With this information we can diagnose the Gastro Esophagic reflux disease and other illnesses, and we can establish if the reflux symptoms come from an extra esophagic source.
Esophageal Manometry ManoScan ESO
It is an instrument that evaluates the esophageal pressure and its movement function. Using this test we can evaluate the muscular esophageal function that allows that liquids and food go through the esophagus to the stomach.
Esophageal manometry can diagnose the source of different illneses:
- Gastroesophagic reflux
- Non Cardiac Thoracic Pain
- Hiatus Hernia
- Functional diseases of anus and rectum
Manometry can also be used to evaluate patients to be prepared for an anti reflux surgery.
