What causes biliary dyskinesia?

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.

Can you explain what biliary dyskinesia is?

Yes. The gall bladder stores and concentrates bile made by the liver to help digest and absorb fats. The gallbladder has nerves which control ejection of the bile when needed. In biliary dyskinesia the contraction of the gallbladder is abnormal. The duct cointracts first and then the gallbladder. So the gallbladder is trying to eject bile through a closed tight opening. This causes pain without stones. Read more...
