An association between dyspepsia, gastricmotility disorders, and myoelectrical abnormalities hasbeen noted. The objective of the present study was toinvestigate both antral myoelectrical activity and gastric emptying in patients with functionaldyspepsia (FD). Electrogastrography (EGG) was performedin 25 adult patients with FD, which had been evaluatedby score. After an overnight fast, for 1 hr in the pre- and postprandial state (370 kcalliquid-solid test meal) the following EGG parameterswere… CONTINUE READING
