Detection of gastroesophageal reflux by scintigraphy in patients with laryngopharyngeal symptoms and findings

Ercan Pınar1, İ. Semih Öncel, Çağlar Çallı, Mücahit Atalay

Objectives: We investigated the incidence of gastroesophageal
reflux by scintigraphy in patients with
laryngopharyngeal symptoms and findings.
Patients and Methods: The study included 32 patients
(14 males, 18 females; mean age 38 years; range 17 to
55 years) who presented with laryngopharyngeal complaints.
All patients underwent routine ENT and headneck
examinations and rigid endoscopy of the larynx to
determine laryngopharyngeal symptoms and findings.
The presence of gastroesophageal reflux was sought
by technetium 99m sulfur colloid scintigraphy.
Results: The most common symptom was dysphagia
(56%) followed by hoarseness (46%). Posterior
laryngitis was the most common laryngeal finding
(18 patients, 56%). Scintigraphy revealed gastroesophageal
reflux in 21 patients (66%), 14 of whom
(67%) had posterior laryngitis.
Conclusion: Patients with laryngopharyngeal
symptoms and findings should be investigated with
regard to gastroesophageal reflux. Scintigraphy may
be a method of choice in this respect.
