Effect of low-dose cisapride on gastric emptying and QTc interval in preterm infants.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  11195234     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSIONS: Cisapride significantly shortened both gastric emptying time and QTc interval (p < 0.05) compared to placebo. All infants completed the study without any apparent adverse effects. In conclusion, low-dose cisapride administration significantly improves gastric emptying without increasing the QTc interval.
