Background Patient assessment of upper gastrointestinal symptoms (PAGI-SYM) questionnaire assesses severity of gastroin- testinal symptoms in gastroparesis (Gp), dyspepsia, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Rome IV Diagnostic Questionnaire (R4DQ), used to diagnose various functional gastrointestinal disorders, may also help to better understand symptoms of Gp. Aim To assess patients with Gp comparing PAGI-SYM to R4DQ. Methods Patients with symptoms of Gp referred to our center from May 2016 to January 2018 filled out PAGI-SYM and R4DQ. Results Out of 357 patients, 225 had delayed gastric emptying including 121 with idiopathic gastroparesis (IGp), 60 with diabetic gastroparesis (DGp), 25 with atypical Gp, and 19 with postsurgical gastroparesis (PSGp). Using PAGI-SYM, DGp had more severe retching and vomiting compared to IGp. PSGp had more severe upper abdominal pain compared to IGp. Using R4DQ, the average number of Rome IV diagnoses that Gp patients met criteria was 2.1 ± 0.1. Most Gp patients had functional dyspepsia (n = 197, 90.8%) and chronic nausea and vomiting syndrome (CNVS) (n = 181, 83.4%). Postprandial distress syndrome (PDS) was present in 189 patients (88.3%), and epigastric pain syndrome in 126 patients (59.8%). The combination of PDS and CNVS was seen in 76.5% of Gp patients.

Abstract

Background Patient assessment of upper gastrointestinal symptoms (PAGI-SYM) questionnaire assesses severity of gastroin- testinal symptoms in gastroparesis (Gp), dyspepsia, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. Rome IV Diagnostic Questionnaire (R4DQ), used to diagnose various functional gastrointestinal disorders, may also help to better understand symptoms of Gp. Aim To assess patients with Gp comparing PAGI-SYM to R4DQ. Methods Patients with symptoms of Gp referred to our center from May 2016 to January 2018 filled out PAGI-SYM and R4DQ. Results Out of 357 patients, 225 had delayed gastric emptying including 121 with idiopathic gastroparesis (IGp), 60 with diabetic gastroparesis (DGp), 25 with atypical Gp, and 19 with postsurgical gastroparesis (PSGp). Using PAGI-SYM, DGp had more severe retching and vomiting compared to IGp. PSGp had more severe upper abdominal pain compared to IGp. Using R4DQ, the average number of Rome IV diagnoses that Gp patients met criteria was 2.1 ± 0.1. Most Gp patients had functional dyspepsia (n = 197, 90.8%) and chronic nausea and vomiting syndrome (CNVS) (n = 181, 83.4%). Postprandial distress syndrome (PDS) was present in 189 patients (88.3%), and epigastric pain syndrome in 126 patients (59.8%). The combination of PDS and CNVS was seen in 76.5% of Gp patients.
