High resolution manometry was used to assess colonic motility using defined parameters. Study 1: assessing the specific effects of bisacodyl, prucalopride and polyethylene glycol in healthy subjects. Study 2: assessing pan colonic pressurisations as a potential pathophysiological mechanism of ROME III constipation in patients compared to healthy subjects. Overall bisacodyl stimulated high amplitude propagating contractions, and patients also had measureable changes in defined motility patterns.
