Radiographic Evaluation: The contrast radiographic study using barium meal was conducted to find out gastric emptying time
and any post-operative complication i.
The present study was undertaken in the Department of Medicine of MKCG Medical College Hospital, Berhampur, Odisha from January 2006 to December 2007 and gastric emptying time
was studied in the Nuclear Medicine Department of the Hospital.
Dumping syndrome is characterized by increased gastric emptying time
following a meal, which leads to abdominal pain, tachycardia, diaphoresis, and blood glucose instability (Buffer, Ehringhaus, & Koletzko, 2001).
However, Aloes are not known to affect gastric emptying time
8) Health-related quality of life (HRQOL), measured by an investigator-derived independent outcome score (IDIOMS score), (8) and gastric emptying time
for liquids (after 1 and 2 hours) (9) and for solids (after 2 and 4 hours) (9) was used to evaluate objective manifestations of their illness.
The determination is based on gastric emptying time
, which can be calculated by feeding patients scrambled eggs laced with a radioactive tracer.
Ultrasound measurements of gastric emptying time
in patients with cystic fibrosis and effect of ranitidine on delayed gastric emptying.
We believe SmartPill demonstrates a strong correlation to the existing radiological method and will be able to provide physicians with a non-invasive, patient-friendly method to accurately measure gastric emptying time
and total GI transit time in patients with suspected gastroparesis.
It was statistically proved that Gastric emptying time
of group "B" was lesser than group "A".
