Gastric Emptying in Postural Tachycardia Syndrome: A Preliminary Report   August 2014

Abstract

Autonomic neuropathy is widely recognized to be associated with upper gastrointestinal symptoms and abnormal (i.e., rapid or slow) gastric emptying. While patients with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) may also have gastrointestinal symptoms, our understanding of gastric emptying disturbances in POTS is very limited. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the relationship between gastric emptying disturbances and gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with POTS.
