BACKGROUNDSevere constipation may be subclassified on the basis of speed of colonic transit and efficacy of rectal evacuation. It is hypothesized that rectal evacuatory disorder (RED) may be associated with a secondary transit delay.OBJECTIVESTo determine whether scintigraphy can discriminate between slow transit constipation (STC) with or without coexistent RED on the basis of progression of isotope throughout the colon and by analyses of specific regions of interest.METHODSOne hundred ninety… CONTINUE READING
