Effects of posture on the physiology of gastric emptying: a magnetic resonance imaging study


Steingoetter, Andreas; Fox, Mark; Treier, Reto; Weishaupt, Dominik; Marincek, Borut; Boesiger, Peter; Fried, Michael; Schwizer, Werner (2006). Effects of posture on the physiology of gastric emptying: a magnetic resonance imaging study. Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology, 41(10):1155-1164.

Abstract

The stomach maintains the rate of gastric emptying despite radical changes in body position and intragastric distribution of gastric contents. In SP, hydrostatic pressure (modulated by gastric tone) dictates the gastric emptying. In UDP, gastric emptying also appears to be mediated by continuous adaptation of gastric tone. These findings provide support for the hypothesis that the mechanism of gastric emptying resembles a "pressure pump" rather than a "peristaltic pump".
