Abstract: Functional dyspepsia (FD), a disorder thought to originate from the gastroduodenum, is one of the most prevalent functional gastrointestinal disorders. In this review, we focused on gastroduodenal mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of FD. The roles of impaired gastric accommodation, delayed gastric emptying, hypersensitivity to gastric distention and to luminal agents, altered mucosal integrity, low-grade inflammation and psychological stress are reviewed. The underlying pathophysiology in FD is probably multifactorial, involving a combination of several of these factors, ultimately leading to symptom pattern and severity.
