The electromechanical activity of the common bile duct (CBD) was studied in 11 dogs aiming at elucidating the mechanism of bile transport through the CBD as well as at characterizing a normal electrocholedochogram that could act as a standard for the pathologic conditions. After opening the abdomen under anesthesia and exposing the CBD, the electric activity of the CBD was recorded by 2 electrodes sutured to its serosa and the pressure registered by a perfused catheter introduced into the CBD…

TLDR
A percutaneous EHG could be characterized for the normal liver in humans and might show changes in liver diseases and thus act as an investigative tool in the diagnosis of such conditions.
Study of the electric activity of the cirrhotic liver with identification of an electrohepatogram.

TLDR
The electric activity of the liver in hepatic cirrhosis exhibited a "hepatoarrhythmic" pattern, which was consistent and reproducible, and an EHG could be identified for the cirrhotic liver.
Electric waves recorded from the testicle: are they capsular or from the testicular tissue?
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the electric waves recorded from the electrodes applied to the testicle were derived from the tunica albuginea and not from the testicular tissue, which apparently denotes that the TA has a resting tone and probably motile activity, the role of which in testicular function needs to be studied.

Patterns of canine gastric electrical activity.
TLDR
In fasting animals a regular, triphasic fluctuation in electrical potential, the pacesetter potential (PP), was detected by an orad corporal electrode and by all others caudad to it, and its velocity increased with caUDad propagation.

TLDR
TC-ESG is a simple, non-invasive and non-radiologic technique that can substitute intra-sigmoid ESG and potentially can be used in the diagnosis of various pathologic conditions of sigmoid colon.

TLDR
The results suggest that PP start at the 3rd electrode, which corresponds anatomically to the rectosigmoid junction (RSJ), which seems to be the site of a pacemaker triggering the PP that pace the AP which initiate the rectal contractile activity.
Biliary Tract
TLDR
Data indicate that meperidine acts on the biliary tract by a mechanism different from that associated with the effect of morphine, as seen in isolated guinea pig common bile duct and gallbladder.

TLDR
Transcutaneous electrorectography is simple, easy, reproducible and cost-effective, and may prove to be a useful investigative tool in the diagnosis of anorectal disorders.

TLDR
It is suggested that the movement of the sigmoid colon or rectum is of the "mass type", which increased the frequency, amplitude and velocity of PPs and APs proximal to the balloon and led to their decrease distally.
