Synucleinopathy and Constipation: A Prospective Observational Study of the Physiology of Constipation in Comparison to Chronic Idiopathic Constipation

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to examine the mechanisms of constipation among patients with synucleinopathies such as Parkinson’s disease (PD) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) and chronic idiopathic constipation. Idiopathic means the cause isn’t known and is not due to identifiable causes. They may be associated with conditions that interfere with final phase of stool expulsion, slow movements along the intestines, or inflammations in the bowels. Further testing in this study can help identify the underlying problem and help your physician determine the best treatment.
