PMID: 36371709.


Gastroduodenal symptoms are highly prevalent, with underlying sensorimotor dysfunction contributing in many patients. Common symptoms include early satiation, postprandial fullness, epigastric bloating, pain or burning, nausea and vomiting, which collectively affect over 7% of adults. However, the clinical evaluation of these symptoms remains challenging, with current tests of gastric function remaining limited in their ability or availability to separate specific patient subgroups or guide-targeted care.
