ABSTRACT
Objective To analyze the colonic transit time in patients with different severities of constipation.Methods From June, 2015 to September, 2017, 73 male patients with supraconal spinal cord injury were grouped as mild constipation group (n = 25) and severe constipation group (n = 48). They were measured the transit time of entire colorectum, ascending colon (including the right colic flexure), transverse colon, descending colon (including the left colic flexure) and rectosigmoid with Abrahamsson method.Results The transit time of entire colorectum, transverse colon, descending colon increased in the severe constipation group compared with that of the mild constipation group (P < 0.05). For each group, the transit time of rectosigmoid was the longest among colon segments (P < 0.05).Conclusion The colonic transit time of SCI male patients with various constipation is different in colon segments. Accurate interventions are needed to target colon segments.
