Abstract

We evaluated the effect of bowel preparation on colonic transit time (CTT) measured by the radio-opaque marker test in children with constipation. All children underwent 2 radio-opaque marker-CTT tests, both in cleansed and uncleansed bowel state. Our findings confirm that the state of colonic fecal filling may significantly influence CTT.
