While reflux disorder, achalasia, esophageal spasm, gastroparesis and IBS contain essentially the most universal issues in all illness different types, the knowledge in their pathophysiology has remained elusive. the sphere of medical gastrointestinal motility has for many years depended on the dimension of intestinal activities for prognosis and administration of those tough and enigmatic issues of intestine functionality. even though desktops have elevated the rate with which we will degree the routine of the intestine, the units to degree this flow haven't replaced in over twenty years. within the final 2 years, a brand new technologic step forward has taken position within the size of intestinal flow. The know-how is termed excessive answer manometry. instead of the outdated four and eight channels structures of measuring strain, excessive answer employs 36 heavily spaced sturdy country strain transducers. through the use of this expertise, the answer of intestine motor task is wonderful. this permits for higher methods of viewing motility utilizing colour as strain. This know-how makes for gorgeous photos of intestine motility that we've got by no means obvious ahead of. we now have made diagnoses that will by no means were preferred with the previous expertise. excessive solution manometry is taking on traditional manometry world wide and represents a dramatic bounce in decades stagnant area.
