Inquiry into the Laboratory Diagnostic Tests in Larygopharyngeal Reflux Disease

Laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD) is the result of retrograde flow of gastric contents to the laryngopharynx. Laryngoscopic findings and special questionnaires are first step of diagnosis of LPRD. Empiric trials of Proton pump inhibitor' test (PPI test) is recommended as treatment and diagnosis. However confirmation of reflux is then recommended primarily in patients with persistent symptoms despite acid-suppressive therapy. The 24 hour ambulatory double pH monitoring has been a gold standard method in diagnosis of LPRD even though it has some limitation. The combined multichannel intraluminal impedance and pH monitoring is a new-rising test tool. It can detect acid/non-acid, liquid/gaseous reflux and clearance of refluxate. The water siphon test is also used for diagnosis of LPRD.
