ATTITUDES OF BSC MEMBERS TO THE DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF BILIARY DYSKINESIA
- Nifedipine for Suspected Type II Sphincter of Oddi Dyskinesia. Sand, Juhani; Nordback, Isto; Koskinen, Matti; Matikainen, Martti; Lindholm, T. Sam // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Apr1993, Vol. 88 Issue 4, p530
Endoscopic sphincterotomy may be the treatment of choice in type I sphincter of Oddi dyskinesia, but in type II dyskinesia the results are controversial, the complication rate may be high, and technically endoscopic sphincterotomy is not always possible. Nifedipine has been observed to relax the...
- The Effect of Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation on Sphincter of Oddi Pressure in Patients with Biliary Dyskinesia. Guelrud, Moises; Rossiter, Alicia; Souney, Paul F.; Mendoza, Sonia; Mujica, Victor // American Journal of Gastroenterology;May1991, Vol. 86 Issue 5, p581
Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) has been postulated as a neuropeptide with inhibitory neurotransmitter activity in nonadrenergic noncholinergic pathways. Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter in patients with achalasia. Such response is...
- Biliary Dyskinesia with Associated High Amplitude Esophageal Peristaltic Contractions1. Johnson, David A.; Cattau Jr., Edward L.; Winters Jr., Charles // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Apr1986, Vol. 81 Issue 4, p254
A 60-yr-old woman with recurrent biliary-type pain and pancreatitis was found to have abnormal biliary manometrics. Sphincter of Oddi basal and phasic contraction pressures were significantly elevated. Esophageal manometrics revealed high amplitude peristaltic contractions that were unassociated...
- Evaluation of gastrointestinal pathology and treatment in children with suspected biliary dyskinesia. Karnsakul, Wikrom; Vaughan, Richard; Kumar, Tarun; Gillespie, Stacey; Skitarelic, Kathryn // Pediatric Surgery International;Dec2011, Vol. 27 Issue 12, p1307
Aim: Decreased gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) was reported in patients who had abdominal pain and gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. The study aims were to review pathology of GI tract in children with acalculous biliary-type abdominal pain and to evaluate the pain improvement after a 2-week...
- HIDA scan ejection fraction does not predict sphincter of Oddi hypertension or clinical outcome in patients with suspected chronic acalculous cholecystitis. Young, S. B.; Arregui, M.; Singh, K. // Surgical Endoscopy;Dec2006, Vol. 20 Issue 12, p1872
Hepatobiliary iminodiacetic scan with ejection fraction (HIDA EF) is used to evaluate chronic acalculous cholecystitis (CAC). A presumed etiology of CAC is sphincter of Oddi hypertension (SOH). In this study, we evaluated the value of HIDA EF to predict patient response to laparoscopic...
- CHRONIC PANCREATITIS AND THE SPHINCTER OF ODDI: WHICH IS THE NUMERATOR AND WHICH THE DENOMINATOR? Lebovics, Edward; Heier, Stephen K.; Rosenthal, William S. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug1988, Vol. 83 Issue 8, p854
Introduces a series of articles related to chronic pancreatitis and the sphincter of Oddi.
- Incomplete response to endoscopic sphincterotomy in patients with sphincter of Oddi dysfunction: evidence for a chronic pain disorder. Linder, Jeffrey D.; Klapow, Joshua C.; Linder, Sheri D.; Wilcox, C. Mel // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug2003, Vol. 98 Issue 8, p1738
: ObjectiveThe efficacy of endoscopic treatment of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) with endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) remains controversial. Although some studies have shown a positive impact on patient symptoms after treatment, these reports have been largely qualitative and evaluated on...
- The Sphincter of Oddi Motor Function after Choledochoduodenostomy and Sphincterotomy. Cherubini, Mariano; Nataloni, Gabriella // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jun1989, Vol. 84 Issue 6, p684
Presents a letter to the editor in response to the article "Motor pattern of the sphincter of Oddi in patients with bilioenteric shunt: A manometric study," by J. Ponce et al in a 1988 issue.
- Reply to Cherubini and Nataloni. Ponce, Julio; Garrigues, Vicente // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jun1989, Vol. 84 Issue 6, p684
Presents a response by Julio Ponce to a letter to the editor about his article "Motor pattern of the sphincter of Oddi in patients with bilioenteric shunt: A manometric study," in a 1988 issue.
