Stimulation of colonic motility by oral PEG electrolyte bowel preparation assessed by MRI: comparison of split vs single dose.
Bottom Line: Ingestion of 1 and 2 L PEG electrolyte solution caused a rapid increase in the small bowel and colonic volumes and a robust rise in colonic motility.The increase in both volumes and motility was dose dependent.Such a challenge, being well-tolerated, could be a useful way of assessing colonic motility in future studies.

Mentions: The baseline value of ascending colon chyme T1 for the split dose was significantly higher than of the single dose group, p = 0.0496 (Fig.8). The T1 significantly increased fourfold from baseline values upon dosing for both the split dose (p < 0.0004) and the single dose (p < 0.0005). The split dose T1 values remained higher than for the single dose throughout the study day, but the difference was not significant (Table S3). The T1 values returned to baseline values the following day.
