The lack of a precise definition has made it difficult to establish its prevalence and its clinical and manometric characteristics. Objectives: 1 To determine the prevalence of HLES using precise diagnostic criteria, 2 To identify the clinical manifestations of this disease, and 2 To compare manometric findings in patients with HLES against normal subjects.

Hypercontractile esophagus: Clinical context and motors findings in high resolution manometry. Conclusiones: el EH es un trastorno de muy baja frecuencia. Background: Hypercontractile esophagus HE is a primary hypercontractile disorder of the esophageal musculature not frequently seen in the general population. The aim of our study was to assess the clinical context and manometric characteristics in patients with HE using high-resolution manometry HRM.

Methods: We thoroughly reviewed the clinical features and manometric findings of a total of patients with esophageal symptoms that were attended in the Department of Gastroenterology of our hospital between June and June Results: We found seven patients that met criteria for HE according to the Chicago Classification Mean age was 64 years old. Most frequent symptoms were: Chest pain, dysphagia and heartburn.

Integrated relaxation pressure IRP was not higher in hypercontractile contractions than in normal contractions. One patient presented pathological acid exposure PAE in hours pH-metry. Conclusions: HE is a rare disorder and HRM is essential for its correct diagnosis and characterization.

The treatment of HE should achieve the disappearance or at least improvement of the patient's symptoms and avoid unnecessary diagnostic testing. Key words: Hypercontractile esophagus.
