Circadian variation of rectal sensitivity and gastrointestinal peptides in healthy volunteers.

Abstract

The aim of our study was to identify diurnal variation of perception of rectal distension and the release of gastroenteropancreatic hormones. In 12 healthy male volunteers (25 years, range 22-32), a rectal balloon distension was performed. Rectal perception thresholds (minimal, urge and pain) and rectal compliance were double-measured with a computer… (More)
