Diagnosis and management of intestinal motility disorders.

Gastrointestinal motility disorders in their most severe forms may directly lead to intestinal failure. Abnormal motor function may also contribute to the overall gut dysfunction of children who have other underlying gastrointestinal diseases, such as Hirschsprung disease or gastroschisis. Understanding the extent and the severity of the dysmotile segments has direct therapeutic and prognostic implications. Our ability to study gastrointestinal motility has greatly improved in the past few years, with the development of less-invasive diagnostic tests. Optimal treatment of children with intestinal motility disorders relies on a multidisciplinary approach, which focuses on optimizing nutrition, improving gastrointestinal motility, and reducing psychosocial disability. Patient education is important to avoid aggravations of symptoms caused by dietary indiscretions.
