What is antroduodenal manometry?

Also known as: antro-duodenal manometry.

If a person has problems digesting food or passing it through the body, an antroduodenal manometry may be performed. This procedure involves passing a catheter into the antrum (lower part of the stomach) and duodenum (upper part of the small intestines) in order to check their function.
