Abstract

Esophageal motility disorders (EMD) is characterized by impaired coordinated esophageal motility function with symptoms including dysphasia, heartburn or noncardiac chest pain. Since EMDs is functional disorders, it is usually difficult to make a diagnosis by conventional examinations including endoscopy and esophagography. Recently developed high-resolution manometry allows us to evaluate esophageal motility function precisely and to make a differential diagnosis of EMDs, together with Chicago Classification (CC) version 3.0 (CC ver3.0). In this article, we reviewed diagnosis of EMDs based on CC ver3.0 and current treatment strategy for EMDs.
