  2. 2. Slow Transit Constipation : Aspects of Diagnosis and Treatment

    Author : Erik Lundin; Urban Karlbom; Wilhelm Graf; Anders Dolk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; colectomy; constipation; radio-opaque markers; rectal compliance; rectal sensation; scintigraphy; segmental colonic resection; segmental colonic transit; sphincter pressure; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Oral 111-Indium-DTPA colonic scintigraphy was used to assess segmental transit in 23 patients with slow transit constipation (STC) and 13 controls. The transit time did not differ between patients and controls in the right colon, whereas the patients had a consistent delay from the transverse colon and distally (P... READ MORE
