Various causes of abnormal gastrointestinal motility may account for the symptoms of chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction syndrome (CIIPS). Fasting gastrointestinal motility in humans is characterized by regular cyclic activity of the migrating motor complex (MMC), which may be used as an objective indicator of intestinal motility. The present study investigated MMC in five children with CIIPS (2 neurogenic and 3 nonneurogenic cases) using a perfused catheter system. The findings were compared… Expand
Understanding pediatric intestinal pseudo-obstruction: implications for nurses.
TLDR
Current literature on pseudo-obstruction is reviewed to review current literature on this disease and summarize information useful to nurses to encounter pediatric clients with this disorder and their families in many different healthcare arenas. Expand
Colonic Pseudo-Obstruction
TLDR
Ogilvie’s syndrome commonly occurs in patients who are critically ill, have electrolyte imbalance, or on anticholinergic medications and is a poorly understood disease that is characterized by functional large bowel obstruction. Expand

TLDR
Colonic pseudo-obstruction is often confused with mechanical intestinal obstruction, and when mechanical obstruction is excluded by contrast enema, the patient should be treated conservatively with nasogastric and flatus tubes for at least 48 hours, and precipitating factors should betreated.

Two-dimensional alterations of myenteric plexus in jejunoileal atresia.
TLDR
The less expansion of the myenteric nerve plexus seen in the proximal bowel in infants with JA suggests a histologic basis for the efficacy of tapering or plication of the dilated bowel. Expand

Disorders Of Gastrointestinal Motility In Childhood
TLDR
This comprehensive volume discusses the current understanding of the ontogeny of motility, particularly the oesphagus and small intestine, and the development of smooth muscle and enteric nerves together with their interrelationship with the neuro endocrine environment. Expand
Predicting the clinical response to cisapride in children with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction.
TLDR
In children with CIP, absence of the MMC was associated with need for greater intensity of nutritional support and decreased response rate to cisapride, but often could be predicted by the presence or absence of bowel dilation and MMCs. Expand
Nonmigrating rhythmic activity in the stomach and duodenum of neonates.
TLDR
There are some differences in gastrointestinal motility between infants and adults and further investigations are required for the evaluation of the physiology or pathophysiology of this phenomenon, and in infants, many bands of rhythmic contractions of the alimentary tracts can exist without migration.

Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction syndrome in pediatrics. Results of a national survey by members of the North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
TLDR
A total of 87 cases of chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction were identified as fitting the criteria for the syndrome, withAbdominal distension in 70, vomiting in 50, and constipation in 50 of the 87 cases were the three commonest presenting symptoms. Expand
The interdigestive motor complex of normal subjects and patients with bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.
TLDR
These studies establish the presence and define the characteristics of the normal interdigestive motor complex in man and suggest that bacterial overgrowth may be due to a specific motility disorder i.e., complete or almost complete absence of the interdigested motor complex. Expand
Variability of motility of the ileum and jejunum in healthy humans.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the migrating motor complex occurs throughout the human small intestine, and that inter- and intraindividual variations are marked; food disrupts the complex for variable periods. Expand

Relationship of motility to flow of contents in the human small intestine.
TLDR
Flow of intestinal content is largely intermittent during fasting, peaks of flow being associated with passage of the activity front of the migrating motor complex; on the other hand, half the fasting flow is unassociated with the activityFront. Expand
