What we are studying
Gastroparesis is a condition that involves problems emptying the stomach. Some symptoms are vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, and the feeling of being full right away when you start eating. Gastroparesis may also lead to malnutrition and weight loss. Current treatment for gastroparesis generally includes drugs. This study is about another treatment option, the Enterra Therapy Gastric Stimulation System (gastric pacemaker). Enterra Therapy is indicated for the treatment of patients with long term, uncontrolled (not helped by medication) nausea and vomiting.
