On electrogastrography (EGG) spectral analysis, an activity of 3 cycles per minute (cpm) is supposed to be specific for the stomach. After total or subtotal gastrectomy, the original site of the stomach is occupied mainly by the intestine. We attempted to determine if intestinal activity could be recorded in this region with EGG. Epigastric recordings were performed in patients prior and following gastrointestinal or control surgeries. Spectral analysis, using the maximal entropy method and… CONTINUE READING
