Antral axial forces postprandially and after erythromycin in organic and functional dysmotilities


Our aims were to measure antral axial forces in patients with suspected upper gut dysmotilities and to compare the number of antral contractions detected by an axial force catheter and by manometric sensors in the distal antrum and pylorus.
