Investigation into the natural history, pathogenesis, evaluation, and management of gastroparesis will be active in the coming years. Use of quantitative symptom questionnaires will facilitate stratification of patients into subtypes on the basis of symptom predominance and severity. Research on novel prokinetic therapies, as well as on treatments that relieve symptoms resulting from pathophysiologic defects other than delayed gastric emptying, will be emphasized.
