Biliary dyskinesia: Sphincter of oddi dysfunction, or biliary dyskinesia, is defined by bile duct manometry showing sphincter spasm, increased phasic contraction frequency (tachyoddia), paradoxical contraction response to cck, & abnormal propagation of phasic waves. Response to sphincterotomy is predicted by associated abnornalities in serum liver functions as well as manometry findings.Pain alone may not so respond.
