Figure 3 Normalization of ectopic tachygastria with low-frequency/high-energy gastric electrical stimulation [pacing frequency: 3. 2 cycles/min (cpm), pulse width: 300 ms, amplitude: 4 mA] in a patient with gastroparesis. The pacing was carried out in the proximal corpus and the recording electrodes were in the mid gastric corpus (S2) and in the gastric antrum (S4). Before pacing a slow wave of about 3.5 cpm was recorded at S2 (A) and tachyarrythmias at S4 (B), whereas the pacing with a frequency of 3.2 cpm entrained gastric slow waves at S2 (C) and S4 (D)[44].
