Abstract

The diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has evolved from reliance on history and fluoroscopy to continuous esophageal pH monitoring with catheter-based pH probes and wireless pH probes to continuous impedance/pH monitoring. This review describes the currently employed diagnostic tests and the actual management of GERD in children.
