In brief: Manometry definition

these are definitions to characterize achalasia (a disorder of esophagus where contraction wave is absent and the lower sphincter does not relax): Type1 has minimal contractions, Type2 intermittent contractions, Type3 spastic contractions.
Success rates of treatment differ as replied in prior question. I'm happy to consult as I would highly recommend followup at major specialized expert center
