Dipesh Vasant, Ben Disney

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Learning Points
1. A clinical diagnosis of rumination syndrome should be considered in patients presenting with recurrent effortless post-prandial regurgitation of undigested food without nausea

2. Concurrent oesophageal manometry with impedance monitoring after a test meal can be helpful in confirming the diagnosis

3. Behavioural modification techniques, such as diaphragmatic breathing and biofeedback, to counteract habitual contractions of the intercostal and abdominal wall musculature are highly efficacious in improving symptoms and are the mainstay of treatment
