Esophageal manometry: Time to teach old dogs new tricks!

I have been doing manometry for a long time and felt there really wasn’t much more to learn or see related to this field. That is until we got a high-resolution system. Now I realize I wasn’t seeing as much as I thought I was with the old perfusion systems and the physiology is incredible and much better demonstrated with the solid state high resolution systems.
I do not know how many of you are doing manometry or have had exposure to high-resolution systems but I would like to hear of your experiences.
Do you do manometry?
What systems have you used?
What is your experience with high-Resolution manometry?
Let us know what you think; I look forward to hearing how you are faring in this “brave new world” of physiology!
