Disadvantage is that the effect wears out after 3–6 months and frequent retreatment will be required. Pneumodilation is another treatment option. A 3- to 4-cm wide balloon is placed endoscopically or under fluoroscopic control at the level of the LES. By filling the balloon with air (pneumodilation), the sphincter is dilated. The effect of pneumodilation persists longer than that of Botox injections, but sometimes repeated dilations are required. There is also a risk of perforation of the esophagus (about 2 %).

In resting conditions the LES is closed and exerts a tonic pressure, so it prevents retrograde flow of gastric contents over the LES. The diaphragm exerts little pressure to the antireflux barrier in the resting state. During activities that increase intra-abdominal pressure, such as deep inspiration, coughing, and bending over, the diaphragm contracts at the same time, resulting in a simultaneous increase in sphincter pressure. This prevents reflux during these activities. The resting pressure of the LES varies during the day and is dependent on several factors: • After the meal the sphincter pressure is lower than in fasted state.

From there, motor neurons of the cranial nerves are activated that control the muscles of pharynx and upper esophagus (glossopharyngeal, vagal, and hypoglossal nerves) and the motor neurons of the vagus nerve that control the middle and distal esophagus.
