THE SPREAD OF INTESTINAL SYMPTOMS IN PATIENTS WITH FUNCTIONAL DISORDERS OF THE UPPER GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT
Keywords:intestinal symptoms, functional disorders, gastrointestinal tract
The research aims to assess and characterize the prevalence of intestinal symptoms/strictures in patients with functional disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract. The evaluation of the clinical data suggested that among the concomitant (intestinal) disorders detected in patients with functional disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract, functional constipation predominated, strengthening the opinion that one of the major pathogenic mechanisms of functional disorders of the upper and lower intestines is a violation of gastric motor-evacuator function. The majority (over 80%) of patients with functional disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract have a concomitant functional bowel disorder, indicating the possible common pathogenesis of functional disorders of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. Since the diagnosis and management of functional disorders of the digestive system still remains one of the main challenges in modern gastroenterology, regulation of the motor-evacuator process and management of functional disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract may have a positive effect in terms of reduced intestinal strictures and improved general clinical condition.
