Diseases of the Esophagus, 08/21/2012
Richter JE et al. – Patients who do not have pathologic acid gastroesophageal reflux parameters on ambulatory pH monitoring then could attempt to discontinue antisecretory medications like proton pump inhibitors and H2–receptor antagonists (which are expensive and which carry risks – i.e. C. diff, etc.), may undergo further evaluation for other causes of their esophageal symptoms; and can be referred to an ear, nose, and throat/pulmonary/allergy physician for assessment of non–GERD causes of their extraesophageal symptoms.
