LARRAIN B, Francisco  y  GUIRALDES C, Ernesto. Reflujo gastroesofágico: un intento de clarificar conceptos. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 1999, vol.70, n.4, pp.270-280. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41061999000400002.

Gastroesophageal reflux: an attempt to clarify concepts Gastroesophageal reflux is one of the subjects in paedriatric gastroenterology that perhaps provokes the biggest controversy. In spite of numerous publications appearing in the last few years, there still exists confusion with respect to theoretical and practical concepts, which frequently results in an inadequate management of patients. The biggest confusion arises from the difficulty in discriminating between physiological and pathological reflux. The existence of numerous techniques for studying reflux, which have been developed in the last few years, indicates that none of them is completely satisfactory, and on the other hand the use of these techniques is not always the best choice. In this article we make a critical appraisal of the subject in relation to aspects theoretical, pathological, diagnostical and therapy, based on the most recent publications in the medical literature

Palabras clave : gastroesophageal reflux; pediatrics; esophageal pH.
