Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Gastric emptying time of a solid meal was estimated on X-ray in 7 patients with a normal duodenal loop, 7 patients with a proximal duodenal anomaly, and 12 patients with a distal duodenal anomaly. A determination coefficient between gastric emptying time and duration of serum gastrin increase was calculated. The food-stimulated serum gastrin secretory pattern was studied in 9 patients with a normal duodenal loop, 6 with a proximal duodenal anomaly, and 13 with a distal duodenal anomaly. The various groups presented significantly different gastric emptying times; thus patients with normal duodenal loop had a mean gastric emptying time of 6 h, patients with proximal duodenal anomalies ahd a mean gastric emptying time of 4.5 h, and patients with distal duodenal anomalies had a mean gastric emptying time of 9 h. Gastric emptying time and duration of increased serum gastrin secretion was positively correlated (R2 = 0.89). The food-stimulated serum gastric secretory pattern was equal in patients with proximal duodenal anomalies and those with distal duodenal anomalies and furthermore, reached significantly higher serum gastrin concentrations than in patients with a normal duodenal loop.
