Abstract

Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is defined as the retrograde movement of gastric contents into the larynx, pharynx and upper aerodigestive tract. LPR is caused by retrograde flow of stomach contents via the oesophagus into the larynx. It shares a similar pathophysiology to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). LPR is a distinct entity, which can exist in patients with or without symptoms of GERD
