Stomach and Small Bowel Disorders
Impeded gastric emptying (gastroparesis) is the symptoms of delayed gastric emptying incorporate nausea and vomiting. Poor emptying of the stomach can occur for several reasons
Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is a disorder with regular episodes of acute nausea and vomiting interspersed with symptom free periods. CVS occurs in all ages. Patients may scuffle for many years before a precise diagnosis is made. Rapid gastric emptying (dumping syndrome) and Functional dyspepsia are some of the other stomach disorder.
Bowel obstruction occurs when the normal flow of intraluminal contents is interrupted. Obstruction can be functional (due to abnormal intestinal physiology) or due to a mechanical obstruction, which can be acute or chronic . Advanced small bowel obstruction leads to bowel dilation and retention of fluid within the lumen proximal to the obstruction, while distal to the obstruction, as luminal contents pass, the bowel decompresses.Some common bowel disorders include:
· Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
· Crohn’s disease
· celiac disease
· Intestinal obstruction
