What Is A Normal Ejection Fraction For Gallbladder
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.See 8 more doctor answers
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
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.See 2 more doctor answers
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?
Can biliary hyperkinesia damage gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or biliary tree? My ultrasound was normal, but ejection fraction=91%.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
What does ejection fraction means? I'm having a hida scan tomorrow because i'v been diagnosed w/a gallbladder sludge
Ejection fraction is: A measure of how effectively the gallbladder releases bile when it contracts. During a hida scan, the gallbladder accumulates the radioactive substance. Another medication is then given (cck) which stimulates the gallbladder to contract. A special camera measures how well the gallbladder empties. This is reported as a percentage. If abnormal, this may be a source of pain without gallstones.See 3 more doctor answers
My temp is 99.8 and it flucuates all day. By evening it is fine. My gallbladder is 9% ejection fraction. No stones. Could this be from gallbladder?
Yes, it can: But other causes are more likely. Usually, gallbladder problems cause fever when it progresses to acute cholecystitis. Depending on how long you have had the fluctuating low grade fever, ask your doctor if he can find other causes of it, such as infection, inflammation, or even malignancy.
Less than 35%: By convention most adult nuclear labs use above 35% as normal values. However these values are usually in conjunction with symptoms, biliary colic, that are consistent. There are individuals who can have normal gbef that have disease. These patients have biliary dyskinesia, a motility disorder, of gb. Some believe in hyperkinetic gb ejection fraction over 75% associated with symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
Is the ejection fraction painful during hida? I have a gallbladder sludge, and a nuclear med scan tomorrow.
CCK: To determine a gallbladder ejection fraction, a medication called cck is administered iv. Your body normally has its own cck which makes the gallbladder contract. The exogenous cck may simulate any symptoms which you feel when you normally eat a fatty meal. If you get cramping, nausea, etc.....You may experience this with cck. Symptoms are often more pronounced with rapid speed of injection.See 5 more doctor answers
What happens if my gallbladder ejection fraction is 0%. Do I have to get it out? Will I not be able to digest fat?
Not necessarily: You do not have to get your gallbladder removed. People with decreased gallbladder ejection fraction (<50%) often have symptoms related to this problem such as pain on the right side after eating, inability to tolerate fatty foods and bloating. > than 80% of people will get better after having thier gallbladder removed. Rarely people have trouble digesting fats after surgery (cramps/ diarrhea).See 2 more doctor answers
What happens to bile stored by the gallbladder when the gallbladder has been proven to have an ejection fraction of 1%?
Gallbladder: The gallbladder does store extra bile. Bile is usually squeezed from the gallbladder into the bile duct when one eats. An ejection fraction study is one estimate at one time showing how the gallbladder empties at that one time. Bile will still likely escape from the gallbladder when one eats, even with a very low ejection fraction. It just empties slower.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi doctors, was just wondering what is considered a high gallbladder ejection fraction during a hida scan?
Usually normal: Hyperkinetic or hyperactive gallbladder is not generally accepted as a diagnosis. A small group of patients (63) was symptomatic with cck infusion with greater than 80% ejection fraction. 28 of these patients underwent removal of gall bladder. 97% of these 28 patients showed improvement in symptoms following surgery.. More published retrospective and prospective studies needed.
I'm constantly nauseated when I eat! Is it because my gallbladder is only functioning 15%? Had hida scan which showed ejection fraction of 15%
Gallbladder ejection fraction rate of 14.8, then 33.3, then 33.3 then 68.7 during the same test? Referred to surgeon. Can gallbladder be removed?
68.7% EF is normal: An ejection fraction of 68.7% is normal, and as such perhaps an alternative culprit should be considered for your symptoms.
