Abstract

Background/Purpose: It has been suggested that whole gut irrigation (WGI), which is a preparation method for large bowel surgery or colonoscopy, increases gastrointestinal motility by creating a gastrocolic reflex. An experimental study was performed to evaluate the effect of different WGI solutions on gastrointestinal smooth muscle activity.
