Is high resolution manometry enough or does multichannel intraluminal impedance still add information to esophageal function testing
Kshitij Kakar, MD, Leena Khaitan, MD Department of Surgery, Case Western Reserve School Of Medicine High resolution impedence manometry ( HRiM) is a comprehensive test of esophageal pressure and bolus transit (BT) dynamics. Standard manometry allowed assessment of the esophagus in 4 channels whereas high resolution manometry (HRM) has 32 channels, allowing a clearer assessment… Continue Reading »
Plume Characteristics (Emission Direction, Types and Settlement Time) Affects Visual Field Obstruction Generated by Laparoscopic Ultrasonic Devices (LUD).
Fernando J Kim, MD, David Sehrt, Alexandre Pompeo, MD, Wilson Molina, MD Denver Health Medical Center Objective: To characterize laparoscopic ultrasonic device surgical plume emission direction, types (laminar or turbulent) and settlement time affecting visualization.
