Distensibility index superior measure for fibrostenotic severity in children with EoE

The distensibility index provides a superior metric for fibrostenotic severity vs. esophageal diameter alone in pediatric patients with eosinophilic esophagitis, according to research published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.“We have observed for years that children have ongoing symptoms despite improvements in the inflammation.
