Abnormal colonic motor patterns have been implicated in the pathogenesis of severe constipation. Yet in health, the mechanical link between movement of colonic content and regional pressures have only been partially defined. This is largely due to current methodological limitations. Utilizing a combination of simultaneous colonic manometry, high-resolution scintigraphy and a quantitative technique for detecting discrete episodic flow, our aim was to examine the propulsive properties of colonic… CONTINUE READING
