High-resolution esophageal manometry (HREM) is a technique to determine the function of esophageal musculature and the integrity of the lower esophageal sphincter. This test is commonly used for evaluation of nonobstructive dysphagia, assessment of peristaltic reserve before anti-reflux surgery, symptoms of regurgitation, and noncardiac chest pain unexplained by endoscopic evaluation. The current review deals with the spectrum of esophageal motility disorders in India and reviews the technique and reporting of HREM. The clinical utility of HREM in Indian setting with special reference to challenges faced has been discussed in detail.
