HYDERABAD: Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), a leading multi-specialty hospital in South India has organised the second Hyderabad Annual Motility Meet at its Secunderabad facility on Sunday.

Dr Bhaskar Rao, Chief Cardiothoracic Surgeon, and Managing Director & CEO, Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences inaugurated the one-day conference.

The one-day conference saw a gathering of about 70 gastroenterologists from across Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Among the various disorders, the gastroenterologists also discussed esophageal manometry, a test used to measure the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (the valve that prevents reflux of gastric acid into the esophagus) and the muscles of the esophagus. This test will tell if the esophagus is able to move food to stomach normally and helps in diagnosing motility disorders of the food pipe.

Another, biofeedback therapy involves training patients to control physiological processes. This therapy is used among people with longstanding constipation who have pelvic floor dyssynergia. Fecal incontinence (involuntary passage of stool) is a major social stigmata among patients.

The first edition of Motility Meet organized by KIMS last year, discussed the ‘Management of Functional Bowel Diseases’.
