The 24-h pH monitoring should be obtained also in patients who had undergone a previous endoscopic balloon dilatation for two reasons: (1) reflux is often asymptomatic and exposes untreated patients to a higher risk of Barrett’s esophagus or cancer; and (2) in case of persistent or recurrent dysphagia, further endoscopic dilatations should be avoided and a Heller myotomy with antireflux surgery should be considered .

Pandolfino et al. [16–18] proposed in 2008 a new classification of achalasia according to the manometric patterns of esophageal body contractility by high-resolution manometry: type 1, classic, with minimal esophageal pressurization; type 2, achalasia with pan-esophageal pressurization; and type 3, achalasia with spasm (Figs. 5). Type 2 achalasia patients are significantly more likely to respond to any form of treatment than type I or type 3 patients [17, 19]. At logistic regression analysis type 2 was found to be a predictor of positive treatment response, whereas type 3 was predictive of negative treatment response .
