ABSTRACT
Scientists have recently developed and validated the technique of abdominal inductance plethysmography to objectively measure abdominal girth and have shown that subjective worsening of abdominal bloating (AB) through the course of the day is associated with an objective increase in abdominal girth/distension (AG) in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This article cites a study conducted to determine whether bowel habit influences the nature of AB and its relationship to AG in patients with IBS.
