- Adverse events [ Time Frame: 1 week post procedure ]All dilatation or POEM related adverse events, including type, required intervention, severity, time to resolution
- Cytokine levels [ Time Frame: Pre procedure and immediately and 6 hours post procedure ]Post procedural inflammation compared to baseline as measured by blood cytokine levels
- Long term clinical success [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months post procedure ]Long term clinical success at 6 and 12 months post procedure compared to baseline.
- LES pressure [ Time Frame: 3, 6 and12 months post procedure ]Post procedure reduction in LES pressure at 3, 6 and 12 months compared to baseline.
