Examen de ácido estomacal

El examen de ácido estomacal es utilizado para evaluar la capacidad de las células parietales del estómago para secretar ácido. Este examen se realiza mediante la aspiración de líquido a través de un tubo que se inserta a lo largo del esófago hasta el estómago. Se puede utilizar para evaluar la causa de las úlceras, detectar regurgitación duodenal, evaluar la causa de malabsorción, evaluar la efectividad de medicamentos antiúlceras y evaluar la secreción de gastrina.
