Abstract

We examined the effect of oral cisapride on gastric emptying time and myoelectrical activity using real-time ultrasonography and cutaneous electrogastrography in 10 children with nonulcer dyspepsia. A clear dominant frequency close to 3 cpm was present both at baseline and after eight weeks of cisapride. After cisapride, nine children had an increase in the normal slow wave percentage and the mean percentage of normal slow wave was significantly different (71.90±5.19% vs 79.16±5.54%;P
