Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Monday, 9 September 2019 is Distension.

Distension (spelled distention in many style regimens) generally refers to an enlargement, dilation, or ballooning effect. It may refer to:

Abdominal distension, typically a symptom of an underlying disease or dysfunction in the body, rather than an illness in its own right

Gastric distension, bloating of the stomach when air is pumped into it, as in a medical procedure

Compliance (physiology) § Blood vessels, distention of blood vessels under increased blood pressure

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:38 UTC on Monday, 9 September 2019.

For the full current version of the article, see Distension on Wikipedia.
