Evaluation of enterogastric reflux in relation to functional status of the gallbladder

Evaluation of enterogastric reflux in relation to functional status of the gallbladder

Acta Chirurgica Iugoslavica 48(3): 49-53

The aim of the study was estimation of the relation between the gallbladder (GB) motility function and the presence and quantity of enterogastric reflux (EGR). We investigated 172 patients with: physiological GB function (filling and emptying)(FGB), impaired GB function (prolonged filling and ejection fraction < 45%) and afunctional gallbladder (AGB)(without visualization). The study was performed during 90 min (1 f/min) after i.v. application of 185 MB 99mTc-dietil IDA. After 30 min. test meal was given while at the end stomach was marked. According to the parameters from time activity curves over stomach and hepatobiliary system, the index of ERG was calculated, while GB filling and ejection fraction were estimated from the GB time/activity curve. We can conclude that EGR occurs more frequently in the patients with afunctional GB in comparison to those with functional and decreased motor function. Also, EGR quantity is in correlation with the impairment of the GB function.
