Gastroparesis and Dumping Syndrome: Current Concepts and Management


Vavricka, Stephan R; Greuter, Thomas (2019). Gastroparesis and Dumping Syndrome: Current Concepts and Management. Journal of clinical medicine, 8(8):1127.

Abstract

Gastroparesis and dumping syndrome both evolve from a disturbed gastric emptying mechanism. Although gastroparesis results from delayed gastric emptying and dumping syndrome from accelerated emptying of the stomach, the two entities share several similarities among which are an underestimated prevalence, considerable impairment of quality of life, the need for a multidisciplinary team setting, and a step-up treatment approach. In the following review, we will present an overview of the most important clinical aspects of gastroparesis and dumping syndrome including epidemiology, pathophysiology, presentation, and diagnostics. Finally, we highlight promising therapeutic options that might be available in the future.
