Objective: The objective of this study and research to determine the GES (Gastric Emptying Scintigraphy) pattern among patients present with PDS (Post-prandial Distress Syndrome). Methodology: Patients suffering from dyspepsia of post-prandial distress from more than 6 months were the part of this research work. This research work carried out in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Lahore from December 2017 to April 2019. We excluded the patients suffering from dyspepsia because of epigastric pain syndrome and other abnormalities. We performed the gastro-intestinal endoscopy in all the patients to determine the organic reasons. Four-hour GES carried out in our institute. We compiled the outcomes and used the SPSS V. 23 for the statistical analysis of the collected information. Results: In this research work we integrated 38 patients having range of age from 15 to 72 years with an average age of 37.050 ±13.50 years. There were 73.70% (n: 28) male and 26.70% (n: 10) female patients in this research study. Average gastric retention with standard deviations at 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th hours were 63.0 ± 19.04%, 37.0 ± 20.62%, 19.0 ±16.66%and10.0 ±12.73% respectively. We found the early gastric emptying in 7.890% (n: 3) patients and late gastric emptying at 2nd and 4thhours waspresent in 10.52% (n: 4) and 32.0% (n: 10) patients respectively. Total 44.0% (n: 17) patients were present with normal gastric emptying regardless of the classical PDS symptoms. Conclusion: We evaluated the gastric dysmotility in GES in fifty percent patients as well as intuitive hypersensitivity among patients present with PDS.
