Brief Summary:
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.

Condition or disease

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

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 32 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Study of the Antro-pyloro-duodenal Motor Dysfunction in Idiopathic Gastroparesis

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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
