[Article in Italian]


On the basis of the observation that the dumping syndrome is seen very rarely now compared to the past, experimental and clinical research was carried out with a view to explaining this phenomenon. These studies showed that it is possible that the gastric antrum plays a basic role in the pathogenesis of the dumping syndrome.
