In healthy female dogs after all vagotomies, proximal gastric, complete gastric and truncal, gastric transmural pressure and distension increased and gastric emptying of liquids was more rapid. Gastric emptying of solids was slowed down by complete gastric and truncal vagotomy but was not impaired by proximal vagotomy, attributed to preservation of antral vagal innervation and terminal antral contraction.
