Advances in Clinical Measurement of Gastrointestinal Motility and Function

Exeter Upper GI Surgeon Mr Saj Wajed and Clinical Scientist Theresa Royles were amongst some 180 specialists attending the International Congress for Advances in Clinical Measurement of Gastrointestinal Motility and Function held in Ascona, Switzerland. Considerable progress has been made in the understanding of complex motility disorders involving pharyngeal, laryngeal, oesophageal and gastric function. The use and interpretation of advanced investigations including high resolution manometry, impedance and wireless pH monitoring, all of which are available in Exeter, are essential in being able to establish a diagnosis and optimise management of these challenging conditions.
