Abstract

Gastroparesis is a condition characterized by delayed gastric emptying without evidence of mechanical obstruction in the stomach. Its symptoms include nausea, vomiting, early satiety, abdominal bloating, and abdominal pain. Most cases of gastroparesis are either idiopathic, due to diabetes mellitus, or post-surgical complications. The diagnosis of gastroparesis requires upper endoscopy, contrast radiography, or validated gastric scintigraphy. Gastroparesis is managed with nutritional support and treatment of any underlying disorders, such as diabetes. Pharmacological treatments have been tried, including prokinetics and novel medications. Interventions focused on the pylorus have shown promising results.
