Abstract

The interdigestive antroduodenal motor activity was studied in 15 patients with bile reflux without gastritis (group A), 17 with bile reflux and chronic antral superficial gastritis (group B) and in nine healthy controls (group C), by manometric recording of phases of the interdigestive motility complex (IDMC) over 240 minutes, or until two consecutive migrating motor complexes (MMCs) had been recorded, whichever the shorter. In the patients with bile reflux the occurrence of MMCs was decreased and median duration of the IDMC was significantly prolonged (group A=162·5 min; group B=185·0 min), compared with controls (group C=92·0 min; p
