Pattern of gastric emptying after vagotomy and pyloroplasty

British Medical Journal
M R ColmerR Shields


The pattern and rate of gastric emptying have been studied in 16 patients before and after vagotomy and pyloroplasty. The rate of emptying, expressed as half life in minutes, was not greatly changed by operation. After operation, however, there was a rapid initial phase of emptying, particularly marked in patients who had post-vagotomy diarrhoea.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
