In the present article, I remind what I presented, in a symposium performed in our Society on the constipation syndrome, in relation with the definition and the determinant factores of this syndrome, and, in addition, with the methods we have created to determine physiologically the velocity of the intestinal transit, specially colonic.

Keywords : Constipation syndrome; definition; determinant factors; measurement of the intestinal transit velocity.
