    Abstract

    Cineradiographic and manometric studies of oesophageal function were carried out in four different groups of patients (those suspected of having oesophageal disease, with and without symptoms; and in two groups of diabetes, with and without diabetic neuropathy). All groups were found to have abnormal oesophageal function, and this was not commoner in those with diabetic neuropathy.
