Abstract

Introduction: Increase in intra-abdominal pressure may affect gastric emptying time but the precise effect has not been demonstrated. Effects of acute increase of intra-abdominal pressure on gastric emptying lime can not be demonstrated in clinical or experimental studies. In this study we aimed to study the effect of increased intra-abdominal pressure on gastric emptying time.
