1. Balloon distension of the duodenum 2 cm oral or anal to the sphincter of Oddi-duodenal junction elevated the amplitude of spontaneous sphincter of Oddi phasic contractions by 37.7 +/- 8.5 or 120.1 +/- 79.8%, respectively (mean +/- S.E.M., both n = 6, P < 0.05, Wilcoxon test). To further investigate this response, this study aimed to determine if: (i) electrical field stimulation (EFS) of the duodenum influences sphincter of Oddi activity; (ii) intramural nerves mediate the response; and (iii… CONTINUE READING
