Impaired gastric emptying may cause dyspeptic symptoms including nausea, vomiting and even nutritionnal impairment. Delay in gastric emptying may result from antro-pyloro-duodenal motility impairement.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Study of the Antro-pyloro-duodenal Motor Dysfunction in Idiopathic Gastroparesis

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Rouen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • antro-pyloro-duodenal pressure [ Time Frame: 3h ]
    the main outcome is the pressure measured using pressure sensors within the antrum, the pylorus, and the first part of the duodenum. This will be measured during 3h fast. Pressures measured in the antrum, the pylorus, and the duodenum wiil be compared between healthy volunteers and gastroparetic patients

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: January 2012
Study Completion Date: January 2014
Primary Completion Date: January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Control group
Healthy volunteers
Idiopathic gastroparesis
Idiopathic gastroparesis

Detailed Description:
The aim of this study is therefore to measure antro-pyloro-duodenal motor activity in patients with idiopathic gastroparesis.
