Abstract

Background/Aims: Pathogenesis of functional dyspepsia (FD) is unclear and not well documented. Some gastric motility abnormalities have been reported to be important factors. Transcutaneous electrogastrography (EGG) is an experimental method that is used to assess FD. We aimed to compare FD patients with control subjects in terms of motility abnormalities according to the EGG results.
