Table 3 Inter-period change in the velocity of the magnet-capsule through the small intestine

From: A randomised, controlled study of small intestinal motility in patients treated with sacral nerve stimulation for irritable bowel syndrome

One-hour following duodenal passage Change ON-OFF Change OFF-ON p
IBS-D and IBS-M (n = 19) 0 (-1.07, 0.63) 0.27 (-0.59, 1.12) 0.25
IBS-D (n = 11) 0.09 (-0.55, 0.45) 0.14 (-0.59, 1.12) 0.68
IBS-M (n = 8) -0.08 (-1.07, 0.63) 0.27 (0.22, 0.32) 0.32
One- hour following ingestion of meal Change ON- OFF Change OFF- ON p
IBS-D and IBS-M (n = 17) -0.13 (-0.46, 0.23) 0.01 (-0.48, 0.59) 0.14
IBS-D (n = 10) -0.04 (-0.17, 0.09) 0.16 (-0.09, 0.59) 0.30
IBS-M (n = 7) -0.13 (-0.46, 0.23) -0.31 (-0.48, -0.15) 0.26
  1. IBS-D and IBS-M stand for diarrhoea-predominant and mixed irritable bowel syndrome. Values are expressed in meters pr. hour as median change (the difference in the velocity of the magnet-capsule from ON to OFF or OFF to ON) and range.
