The patterns of fundic and antral motility as well as changes in fundic pressure in response to balloon distention were evaluated in 26 patients before and after gastric partitioning (18 patients) or gastric bypass (8 patients). In addition, the rate of gastric emptying, as measured by the ingestion of 99mTc-tagged chicken liver, was determined after gastric partitioning (12 patients) and bypass (7 patients).
