The aim of this study was to establish the normal values and evaluate associated factors of gallbladder volume and contractility in term and preterm neonates by using ultrasonography. Sonographic measurement of gallbladder volume was performed by using the ellipsoid method in 50 preterm and 46 term infants. We collected data soon after delivery and at 6-h fasting, and at 3-h and 6-h fasting following regular milk feeding. Serial postprandial changes of gallbladder volume and contractility were… CONTINUE READING
