Gastroparesis (delayed gastric emptying) occurs when the stomach takes too long to empty out food—a disorder caused when the vagus nerve is damaged or otherwise stops working.One treatment for gastroparesis is per oral pyloromyotomy (POP), a technique that allows surgeons to open up the pylorus using only a gastroscope, as opposed to the traditional treatment that requires an open or laparoscopic surgical procedure.
