Abstract Brazilian surgeons deal routinely with esophageal motility disorders, because achalasia is highly prevalent in Brazil due to Chagas' disease. In the last years new technologies for the evaluation of esophageal motility became available. High resolution manometry and the combination of barometric parameters and intraluminal impedance are the new frontiers on this topic. The authors reviewed current, national and international, literature about achalasia with multichannel intraluminal impedance and high resolution manometry studies. The new technologies described are promising, however few studies have been published and further studies are still expected for achalasia patients.
