Abstract

Intestinal manometry has become a part of the gastroenterologists diagnostic armamentarium, albeit confined to a small number of specialist centers. This review traces the development of intestinal manometry from its first beginnings to its current status, evaluates its current role in the assessment of intestinal motor disorders and, in doing so, addresses the vexing issue of defining normality and identifying disease from manometric recordings.
