Action of oral metoclopramide on the gastrooesophageal junction in man

, : Action of oral metoclopramide on the gastrooesophageal junction in man. Gut 14(5): 380-382

The effect of oral metoclopramide, 10 mg, was studied with intraluminal manometry in 20 patients suffering from symptoms of gastrooesophageal reflux. The drug increased cardiac sphincter pressure and the amplitude of oesophageal peristaltic waves, but gastric motility was stimulated in only half of the patients. The clinical value of these pharmacological effects should be confirmed in therapeutic trials.
