Abstract

BACKGROUND: With rising interest in gastroesophageal reflux disease, an evaluation of the importance of manometry (M) and 24-hour pH testing (pH) for decisions regarding these patients is appropriate. METHODS: Two gastroenterologists and two surgeons were presented with history and physical examination, endoscopy, histology, and esophagram data ('DATA') from 100 patients and asked to make a treatment decision. After some time, either pH or M was added to DATA, and a further decision requested. Finally, DATA plus pH plus M was presented, and a decision was requested. Decisions were evaluated for changes in medical therapy, changes between medical and surgical therapy, and changes in type of surgery offered. RESULTS: Overall, 43% (173 of 400) of decisions were altered by the addition of both M and pH to DATA, with 28.5% (114 of 400) of decisions changed from medical therapy to surgery or vice versa by the addition of both tests to DATA. The addition of M alone changed decisions more often than pH alone especially with regard to the type of surgery offered (P
