Abstract

Background/Aims: Helicobacter pylori infection is the most common cause of gastroduodenal diseases. The role H. pylori eradication in functional dyspepsia patients is contradictory. We performed this study to determine the effects of H. pylori eradication in functional dyspepsia patients with respect to physiological and histological parameters including esophageal sphincter functions.
