The purpose of this work was to evaluate gastric emptying of a solid meal in 20 patients with functional dyspepsia and in 20 healthy controls. Gastric emptying time (T 1/2 = 188.45 +/- 93.79; p less than 0.001 - E.I. = 0.43 +/- 0.16; p less than 0.001) was significantly delayed in patients with functional dyspepsia compared with controls. The conclusion is drawn that either antral motor activity or antral-pyloric-duodenal motor activity is impaired in such patients.
