Esophageal Manometry

Esophageal manometry is a diagnostic test of the nerves and muscles in the esophagus (feeding pipe). The test uses a thin flexible plastic catheter (tube) inserted through the nostril, into the esophagus, and ending in the stomach. Sensors on the catheter measure how the muscles of the esophagus squeeze and relax, and the information is recorded to a computer.
