Abstract: Dumping syndrome is characterized by distinct pathophysiological features such as postprandial increase in hematocrit (HT) and pulse rate (PR) and delayed hypoglycemia (HG). Treatment is based on dietary measures and somatostatin analogs (SA), but current SAs have incomplete efficacy, possibly through limited affinity for various somatostatin receptor subtypes. We evaluated the effect of pasireotide, a novel SA with high affinity for 4/5 human somatostatin receptors, on pathophysiological events and symptoms in dumping.
