POTS related to small bowel hypo-contractility pattern
According to a new study done by Wendy Zhou and colleagues, motility problems in postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) patients appear to impact mostly the small intestine and demonstrate a general hypo-contractility pattern. In individuals with POTS and GI symptoms, a wireless motility capsule might possibly aid guide treatment. The findings of this study were published in the journal Digestive Diseases and Sciences on 11th January 2021.
Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is an autonomic disorder that affects multiple organs, including the gastrointestinal system. These patients often have complaints of multiple GI problems with a severe impact on their quality of life.
