Clinical Guideline: Management of Gastroparesis
Current approved treatment options, including metoclopramide and gastric electrical stimulation (GES), do not adequately address clinical need and attention should be given to the development of new effective therapies for symptomatic control. Expand
American Gastroenterological Association technical review on the diagnosis and treatment of gastroparesis.
This literature review and the recommendations herein were prepared for the American Gastroenterological Association Clinical Practice Committee. The paper was approved by the Committee on May 16,Expand
Consensus Recommendations for Gastric Emptying Scintigraphy: A Joint Report of the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society and the Society of Nuclear Medicine
This consensus statement from the members of the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society and the Society of Nuclear Medicine recommends a standardized method for measuring gastricExpand
Investigation of colonic and whole-gut transit with wireless motility capsule and radiopaque markers in constipation.
The SmartPill is a novel ambulatory technique of assessing regional (gastric, small bowel, colonic) and WGTT without radiation and reveals hitherto unrecognized gender differences and upper-gut dysfunction in constipation. Expand
Evaluation of gastrointestinal transit in clinical practice: position paper of the American and European Neurogastroenterology and Motility Societies
Assessment of regional and/or whole gut transit times can provide direct measurements and diagnostic information to explain the cause of symptoms, and plan therapy. Expand
Do Stool Form and Frequency Correlate With Whole-Gut and Colonic Transit? Results From a Multicenter Study in Constipated Individuals and Healthy Controls
Only a moderate correlation exists between stool form and measured whole-gut or colonic transit time in constipated adults, and stool frequency is a poor surrogate for transit, even in those with reduced stool frequency. Expand
Cyclic vomiting syndrome in adults
This article is a state‐of‐knowledge overview on CVS in adults and is intended to provide a framework for management and further investigations into CVD in adults. Expand
Gastric emptying of a non‐digestible solid: assessment with simultaneous SmartPill pH and pressure capsule, antroduodenal manometry, gastric emptying scintigraphy
The non‐digestible SmartPill given with a meal primarily empties from the stomach with the return of phase III MMCs occurring after emptying the solid‐phase meal, however, in some subjects, the SmartPills emptied with isolated antral contractions, an unappreciated mechanism for emptying of a non‐Digestible solid. Expand
Comparison of gastric emptying of a nondigestible capsule to a radio‐labelled meal in healthy and gastroparetic subjects
A nondigestible capsule, SmartPill, records luminal pH, temperature, and pressure during gastrointestinal transit providing a measure of gastric emptying time (GET) using a radio‐labelled meal to measure gastrics emptying. Expand
Measurement of gastrointestinal motility in the GI laboratory.
The best validated and clinically most significant results pertain to transit tests; manometry may contribute importantly to the diagnostic process; and the significance of electrogastrography remains to be fully elucidated. Expand
