Teaching Course: High-Resolution Anorectal 3D Manometry

High-resolution manometry is a state-of-the-art technology for the evaluation of functional disorders of the esophagus and anorectal. ManoScan and EndoFlip systems provide realtime data in HR or 3D for a reliable diagnosis. pH-monitoring systems are available with or without catheter and with or without calibration. Learn about the advantages of each system and how to read the results and make the right diagnosis.

Prof. Dr. med. Alain Schoepfer

Chief Medical Officer, Head of Gastroenterology, CHUV, Lausanne More than half of the patients who see a gastroenterologist have functional gastrointestinal disease. In a significant proportion of the patients, the symptoms are based on a gastrointestinal motility disorder, for example achalasia or dyssynergic defecation. Despite their obvious relevance for the everyday working life of every gastroenterologist, such motility disorders are often neglected in further education and training.
