Disease relevance of Manometry


Psychiatry related information on Manometry


High impact information on Manometry

  • To determine the ocular manifestations of inverting the human body into a head-down vertical position, we evaluated normal volunteers with applanation tonometry, fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, and ophthalmodynamometry [9].
  • Seventy-seven of the patients had pain that was anginal in character, and one fifth of these (16 patients) had abnormalities demonstrated by the following esophageal investigations: endoscopy with biopsy, manometry, radiology, and acid perfusion [10].
  • AGA technical review on the clinical use of esophageal manometry [11].
  • METHODS: Synchronized videofluoroscopy and manometry was used in 8 volunteers (5 men and 3 women) to examine contractile and flow patterns during duodenal infusion of 0.9% NaCl, HCl, 5% NaCl, bile, and sodium oleate, each mixed with 20% (wt/vol) barium sulfate [12].
  • METHODS: Electrogastrography and antroduodenal manometry were performed in 9 nonsmokers and 9 smokers during transdermal nicotine treatment (14 mg) [13].

Chemical compound and disease context of Manometry


Biological context of Manometry


Anatomical context of Manometry

  • Length of biliary (CBD) and/or pancreatic (PD) sphincter of Oddi (SO) was measured during perendoscopic or intraoperative manometry in 21 control subjects and in 46 patients with biliary disease [24].
  • Radionuclide oesophageal transit studies and manometry have been carried out in 15 patients with achalasia of the cardia, before treatment, after a course of nifedipine and after pneumatic bag dilatation [25].
  • Radial artery tonometry was performed, and blood was collected for analysis of fasting lipids, HbA1c, glucose, and cytokines in all children [26].
  • Arterial pressure contours were obtained simultaneously from the right common carotid artery by applanation tonometry with an external micromanometer-tipped probe and from the ascending aorta by a micromanometer-tipped catheter at baseline (n = 62), after handgrip (n = 36), or after sublingual nitroglycerin administration (n = 17) [27].
  • Transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (TLESRs) are the most important mechanism by which gastroesophageal reflux occurs, and sleeve sensor manometry is the gold standard for detection of TLESRs [28].

Associations of Manometry with chemical compounds

  • Forty-four severely constipated women and 16 (8 female, 8 male) asymptomatic volunteers underwent assessment of colon function by (a) clinical examination, (b) rectosigmoid intraluminal pressure recording, (c) colonic transit utilizing radiopaque markers, (d) anorectal manometry, and (e) rectosigmoid electrical activity [29].
  • Small bowel manometry was performed for 30 hours in 5 volunteers receiving 1 mg/kg meperidine over 3 hours [30].
  • Fine-needle intrarenal manometry: a new test for rejection in cyclosporin-treated recipients of kidney transplants [31].
  • METHODS: Six normal volunteers underwent electrogastrography and antroduodenal manometry under control, hyperglycemic clamp, and euglycemic, hyperinsulinemic clamp conditions before and after administration of indomethacin (50 mg orally three times daily for 3 days) [32].
  • Evaluation included baseline esophageal manometry, acid perfusion test, and edrophonium provocation [33].
