Gastric electrical stimulation (GES) has been applied to treat gastroparesis and morbid obesity. The aims of this study were to evaluate the sites of stimulation and the mechanisms of GES on gastric tone and accommodation. Gastric tone and accommodation were evaluated with a barostat in surgically prepared dogs. GES was applied at seven different locations, and gastric tone was assessed at each site. The effect of truncal vagotomy on gastric tone and accommodation and the role of the nitrergic… CONTINUE READING
