14 Criticisms concerning OBT metabolism In a large patient cohort (1279) cumulative 4h-13CO2-excretion is only marginally influenced by patient characteristics and diseases with theoretical impact on absorption and/or postabsorptive metabolism of 13C-octanoic acidKeller J, NeuroGastroenterol Mot, 2009

17 What is their clinical significance? Tests to Assess Gastric EmptyingWhat is their clinical significance?
22 Other diseases and 13C-OBT Usai Satta P, 2005Influences on nutritional status and drug efficacy?
23 Clinical impactThe association of delayed emptying with specific symptoms is relatively weakGastric emptying tests do not yield a high diagnostic specificityWith few exceptions, most studies have failed to demonstrate a correlation between the severity of delayed emptying and prokinetic therapyAn initial treatment approach should be required before performig gastric emptying testIn refractory patients or in those with symptoms that impair nutritional status or the ability to function normally, assessment of gastric emptying may play a pivotal roleTack J, Best Pact Res Clin Gastroenterol, 2009
24 ConclusionsSeveral recommended tests to assess gastric emptying are availableThe clinical impact of these tests is yet uncertainA pivotal role may be played in refractary patients and in the impairment of nutritional status
