Resting HR 120-160 found in notes I also have Left ventricular ejection fraction 52% been passing out a lot should I be worried/is this the cause?

Unfortunately yes: You could be having a dangerous heart rhythm, leading to the passing out. The ejection fraction of 52% is still within the normal range; however, you are tachycardic at baseline, and the fast heart rate may overestimate your true ejection fraction as well as lead to heart damage. If you pass out again, I recommend calling 911, otherwise, see cardiologist ASAP. ...Read more

Gallbladder (Definition)

The gallbladder is a sac-like structure located under the right lobe of the liver. It is attached to the common bile duct via the cystic duct. The gallbladder can store bile when the bile is not needed, and can squeeze bile into the bile duct and intestine for digestion when a person eats larger ...Read more

What is a normal ejection fraction for gallbladder?

What is a normal ejection fraction for gallbladder?

HIDA scan EF>35%: Most radiologists state a normal gallbladder ejection fraction (ef) on a hida scan as 35% or above. A low ejection fraction can be due to gallbladder dyskinesia, chronic cholecystitis (infection), and rarely cancer. A good answer for 'hida scan results' =http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/hida-scan/my00320/dsection & from the an original journal article =radiology.Rsna.Org/content/226/2/593.1.Full. ...Read more

What is the range of the ejection fraction of the gallbladder?

Al least 50%: It should be at least 50%. More important, however, is if the injection of cck at the time of the study replicates your pain. If so, cholecystectomy may be in order. ...Read more

During a hida scan, what is a normal gallbladder ejection fraction?

>35 %: A normal gallbladder ejection fraction is usually over 35%. Anything less than this would be considered dysfunction of the gallbladder or biliary dyskinesia. ...Read more

Gallbladder ultra sound was normal w/NO stones... HIDA scan showed ejection fraction at 10%. I have frequent attacks, what are my chances of Gangrene?

Not common : Unless you have severe pain and fever, gangrene is unlikely. Avoid fatty and greasy foods. Gallbladder contracts when stimulated by fatty foods and this is when pain occurs (after fatty or greasy meals). ejection fraction is normally over 30 %. ...Read more

Can biliary hyperkinesia damage gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or biliary tree? My ultrasound was normal, but ejection fraction=91%.

Can biliary hyperkinesia damage gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or biliary tree?  My ultrasound was normal, but ejection fraction=91%.

Yes, biliary: Dyskinesia can cause damage, and it can also be a result of pathology in pancreas, liver or biliary tree. Byt 91% ejection is normal. Consult with a surgeon or GI specialist for specific recommendation. ...Read more

Will the ejection fraction be low because of a sludge gallbladder?

Will the ejection fraction be low because of a sludge gallbladder?

No-2 Diff. Diseases: "sludge" is a common finding in the gb during pregnancy, rapid wt loss, or fasting; it usually has no clinical consequence, although some people clearly progress to gallstone formation. "biliary dyskinesia" is a condition where the gallbladder does not empty well, leading to pain that simulates a gb attack; this is diagnosed by a cck-hida scan. Most people w/biliary dyskinesia do not have sludge. ...Read more

Gallbladder ejection fraction rate 14%, what does this mean?

Gallbladder ejection fraction rate 14%, what does this mean?

Reduced gb ejection: Gallbladder ef determined as percentage emptying of gall bladder on hida nuclear medicine study with administration of cck ( cholecystokinin, hormone). In adults usually greater than 35% is normal. Low gbef can be related to gall bladder disease or dyskinesia. Usually compared to findings on ultrasound such as gall stones or wall thickening.Gbef affected by degree of fasting and pain medications. ...Read more

Do I have to fast when having a hipa scan with gallbladder ejection fraction?

Yes: Before having a 99mtc-hida scan to evaluate gallbladder ejection fraction ( function) or patency of intra or extra biliary tree, it is always recommanded to fast at least4-6 hours, in order to better evaluate the gallbladder contraction. ...Read more

Please explain what it means when your gallbladder ejection fraction is at 22%?

Please explain what it means when your gallbladder ejection fraction is at 22%?

Usually gb disease: Decreased ejection fraction is less than 35%. May mean chronic gall bladder disease or biliary dyskinesia. If symptoms of biliary colic (gall bladder disease) may receive relief with gall bladder removal. Work up of gall bladder disease usually includes ultrasound study looking for gall stones. ...Read more
