Description: This presentation will review how high-resolution manometry transitioned from a research technology to a clinical tool. The opportunity to measure pressures may provide the clinician a more complete profile for planning treatment for patients with complex dysphagia. Case examples will be presented demonstrating the opportunities that manometry offers to investigate pressure events during swallowing.
