Summary of "Influence of Gastric Emptying and Gut Transit Testing on Clinical Management Decisions in Suspected Gastroparesis."

Gastric emptying scintigraphy (GES) or wireless motility capsules (WMCs) can evaluate upper gastrointestinal symptoms in suspected gastroparesis; WMC tests can also investigate lower gut symptoms. We aimed to determine whether these tests impact treatment plans and needs for additional diagnostic evaluation.

Effects of diurnal variation and food on gastrointestinal transit of In-labeled hydrogel matrix extended release tablets and Tc-labeled pellets in humans.

The aim of this research was to characterize the effect of food ingestion and circadian rhythm on the gastrointestinal (GI) transit of two dosage forms: a hydrogel matrix extended release (ER) tablet ...

Codeine delays gastric emptying through inhibition of gastric motility as assessed with a novel diagnostic intragastric balloon catheter.

The use of opioids as analgesic is on the rise, despite their inhibitory effect on gastric emptying. A novel feeding catheter with integrated intragastric balloon was developed to continuously assess ...

Clinical Predictors of Rapid Gastric Emptying in Patients Presenting with Dyspeptic Symptoms.

Rapid gastric emptying (RGE) is defined as less than 30% retention at 1 h of solid meal ingestion. It is unclear whether RGE represents a separated clinical entity or part of the functional dyspepsia...

Gastric Emptying Improved Significantly After PRG Compared to Billroth-I Reconstruction: Assessment of Gastric Emptying With a C-Breath Test.

We advocated the usefulness of pylorus-reconstruction gastrectomy (PRG) to improve quality of life following surgery for gastric cancer. The current study assessed gastric emptying following PRG in co...

Slowed gastric emptying and improved oral glucose tolerance produced by a nanomolar-potency inhibitor of calcium-activated chloride channel TMEM16A.

Interstitial cells of Cajal, which express the calcium-activated chloride channel transmembrane member 16A (TMEM16A), are an important determinant of gastrointestinal (GI) motility. We previously iden...

Bariatric Procedures and Changes in Incretins and Gastric Emptying

The study evaluates the gastric emptying by scintigraphy in patients that had bariatric surgery (RYGB of gastric sleeve) comparing patients with successful and unsuccessful weight loss and...

Impact of Different Dietary Fibers in Gastric Emptying Time and Intestinal Transit of Healthy Volunteers

The digestive process begins in the mouth and follows in the stomach and intestine. In the stomach the food is mixed with the gastric juices forming the chyme. To mix the food with the gas...

Effect of Glutamine on Gastric Emptying and Length of Parenteral Nutrition in Premature Neonates

This study investigates the effects of enterally supplied glutamine on gastric emptying, intestinal transit, age of total enteral nutrition and age at the end of hospitalisation. Forty neo...

Gastric Emptying in Elderly With Hip Fracture

The gastric emptying of 400 ml 12.6% carbohydrate rich drink is investigated in elderly women, age 75-100, with acute hip fracture. The emptying time will be assessed by the paracetamol ab...

Evaluation of Methods for Measuring Gastrointestinal Transit and Food Reward in Healthy Individuals - The PRESET Study

The wireless motility capsule technology, SmartPill™, can be used to assess gastric emptying and gastrointestinal (GI) transit time. The SmartPill is usually ingested together with a Sma...

Participation of employees with management as a labor-management team, in decisions pertaining to the operational activities of the organization or industry.

Administrator-selected management groups who are responsible for making decisions pertaining to the provision of integrated direction for various institutional functions.

Computer-based systems that enable management to interrogate the computer on an ad hoc basis for various kinds of information in the organization, which predict the effect of potential decisions.

The evacuation of food from the stomach into the duodenum.

A 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
