Abstract

The components of esophageal function important to success with laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) are not well understood. A pattern of delayed, however, successful bolus transit across the LAGB is observed. uccessful LAGB patients underwent a high-resolution video manometry study in which bolus clearance, flow, and intraluminal pressures were recorded. Liquid and semi-solid swallows and stress barium were performed. A new measurement, the lower esophageal contractile segment (LECS), was defined and evaluated
