Gastroesophageal check-up

The Gastroesophageal check up is recommended for those who want to control the symptoms related to gastric reflux.

The gastric reflux is a disease for which the barrier mechanism between the gastric cavity and the esophagus is not working properly. Because of this malfunction, the inner lining of the esophagus is damaged by the presence of the acid and / or bile.

Therefore the gastroesophageal check-up is aimed at those suffering from retrosternal heartburn and regurgitation, but not only. In fact, this disease is also linked to other “atypical” disorders such as asthma, coughing, hoarseness and bronchopulmonary infections.
