Anorectal manometric abnormalities and colonic propulsive impairment in patients with severe chronic idiopathic constipation

Abstract

Idiopathic chronic constipation is a frequent and disabling symptom, but its pathophysiological grounds are still poorly understood. In particular, there is little knowledge about the relationships between distal (anorectal area) and proximal (colonic area) motor abnormalities in this condition, especially concerning high-amplitude propagated colonic… (More)
