To study the relationship between acid reflux and esophageal motility in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. For patients who met the diagnostic criteria of GERD, the author divided them into two groups: the physiological acid reflux group and the pathological acid reflux group. The esophageal motility was compared between the two groups based on the results of pH monitoring of 24h esophagus. According to the results, the difference between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05). There was no significant difference in the speed of esophageal peristalsis wave and the proximal and middle esophageal body pressure between the two groups. Therefore, pathological acid reflux in GERD patients is closely related to LESP, but not related to esophageal peristalsis wave propulsion speed, proximal and middle esophageal body pressure.
