Authors: Oranu AC, Vaezi MF
Noncardiac chest pain (NCCP) is not only a difficult disorder to define but is also complex in characterization and treatment. Patients with NCCP are a challenge to primary care and subspecialty services such as cardiology and gastroenterology. NCCP is often a heterogeneous disorder with many potential causes including gastroenterologic diagnoses. This article presents the current evidence for gastroesophageal reflux disease as a cause of NCCP and highlights the best currently available tests for this group of patients.
