Abstract

Patients who resolved their achalasia pattern, based on HRM, showed improved emptying based on TBE measurements and improved symptom scores. There was no significant difference between patients with type 1 or type 2 achalasia in TBEs. These findings indicate that normalization of the integrated relaxation pressure on HRM is a clinically relevant objective of treatment for achalasia.
