ABSTRACT: Manometric evaluation of esophageal motility and IES function in children with persistent dysphagia following corrosive injury to esophagus have been done in this study. This study includes 18 patients (12 male, 6 female) with a mean age of 4.3 years. All patients were managed by a standard protocol. Esophageal manometry using Albyn Medical System by continuous perfusion of wave technique was done in 18 children. Fourteen patients (77 percent) showed abnormal finding on manometry. The cinefluroscopy done in 7/14 children showed abnormal to and fro movements of bolus suggesting non propagation in 4 patients and mild stricture in 2 patients; 3/4 patients showed improvement in symptoms and manometry findings following cisapride therapy.
