    Gastroesophageal reflux - grading on barium study

    In 1977, a grading system of gastroesophageal reflux on barium study was devised. It is based on the extent of retrograde flow of barium.

    Grade Description
    I reflux into distal esophagus only
    II reflux extending above carina
    III reflux into cervical esophagus
    IV free persistent reflux into cervical esopagus with a wide open cardia (chalasia)
    V reflux of barium with aspiration into the trachea or lungs
    D delayed reflux - barium is seen in esophagus on delayed films
