Özet

Background. An association between hydrocephalus and gastroesophageal motor abnormalities that cause gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is well known. Our aim was to investigate hydrocephalus-induced alterations in esophageal and gastric smooth muscle reactivity and their modulation by pharmacological interventions in the rat model.
