Esophageal Manometry Back to Procedures

What is an Esophageal Manometry?

Your esophagus is made up of muscles that help move food and/or liquid from your mouth to your stomach. As you swallow, valves open to allow food through and then close to make sure everything stays down. An esophageal manometry measures how well those valves function and if they are opening and closing when they should.
