It is evident that the understanding of the pathophysiology underlying the causes of constipation remains incomplete. In some areas, capacity to identify abnormalities has outstripped the ability to treat them. It is hoped that a continuing effort to gather physiologic data from these patients may result in a coherent, physiologic-based treatment approach with maximum therapeutic benefit.
