Gastroparesis is a condition characterized by gastric retention in the
absence of physical obstruction. As part of an ongoing project aimed at
determining the pathogenesis of reactive gastropathy, we hypothesized
that patients with gastroparesis, in whom potentially noxious substances
(e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAID) have a prolonged
contact with the gastric mucosa, would have a greater prevalence of chemical
gastropathy than subjects with normal gastric motility.
