• What Is the Future of Impedance Planimetry in Gastroenterology?

    Schematics of the defecation of Fecobionics are shown (A and B). Simulations from human defecation experiments are shown in the bottom panels (C and D). The color of the Fecobionics bag indicate the pressure in the bag during expulsion, ie, blue is low pressure and orange is high pressure. It was possible to measure impedances, pressures, and bending of the device. The anorectal angle was measured and the shape simulated. The expulsion velocity was computed from the pressure and impedance signals.

    Suggested diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). GI, gastrointestinal; FODMAP, fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols; IBD, inflammatory bowel disease; 5-HT, 5-hydroxytryptamine; PEG, polyethylene glycol.

  • Acotiamide Has No Effects on Esophageal Motor Activity or Esophagogastric Junction Compliance

    Esophagogastric junction (EGJ) compliance with and without acotiamide. (A) An endo-luminal functional lumen imaging probe (EndoFLIP) system was used to monitor EGJ compliance at baseline and following acotiamide administration. Using the special solution provided, the bag included with the system was distended by 20, 30, and 40 mL by which its shape changed to an hourglass form corresponding to distention volume with both acotiamide administration and at the baseline. There were no differences in bag shape following acotiamide administration. (B) Baseline and acotiamide administration values presented as distensibility index graph. To evaluate distensibility index, intra-bag pressure (x-axis) and hiatal cross-sectional area (CSA) (y-axis) values were determined with the EndoFLIP bag distended to 20 mL (circles), 30 mL (squares), and 40 mL (triangles). There were no significant differences between results obtained at baseline and those with acotiamide administration.

  • Regional Brain Activity During Rest and Gastric Water Load in Subtypes of Functional Dyspepsia: A Preliminary Brain Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study

    Regional brain activity differences between epigastric pain syndrome (EPS) (or postprandial distress syndrome [PDS]) and healthy subjects (HS) during resting state (or water load test). (A) EPS vs HS (resting state). (B) PDS vs HS (resting state). (C) EPS vs HS (water load). (D) PDS vs HS (water load). Every figure is the parameter distribution map of the T value corresponding to every voxel plotted in the standard brain, after the independent sample t test between two groups. The color temperature represents the magnitude of T value, eg, warm colors represent the positive T value, meaning the former group has stronger signal intensity than the latter group, and cold colors represent the negative T value, meaning the opposite relationship between the 2 groups. The brighter the color, the greater the absolute value of T value, meaning more apparent difference between the 2 groups. The color band on the right indicates the correlation between the color and the T value. The layer interval in the figures is 8 mm.
