Effect of Endoscopic Sphincterotomy on Gallbladder Motility
Significant improvement in gallbladder motility was observed in both groups of patients of choledocholithiasis with and without gallbladders calculi, indicating that sphincterotomy significantly improves gallbl bladder motility inhumans.


Sphincter of Oddi Manometry
In experienced hands SOM offers an exact tool to determine papillary function in patients presenting with signs or symptoms suggestive of sphincter of Oddi dyskinesia/dysfunction (SOD), but this relatively invasive method is associated with a signifi cant risk of side effects and complications.
Frequency of abnormal sphincter of Oddi manometry compared with the clinical suspicion of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction.
The data suggest that elevated sphincter pressure occurs more frequently in type III patients than previously reported, and supports consideration of SOM when evaluating and treating type II andtype III patients.
Pancreatic sphincter hypertension increases the risk of post-ERCP pancreatitis.
Pancreatic sphincter hypertension greatly increases the risk of post-ERCP pancreatitis in patients undergoing treatment or evaluation, or both, for spHincter of Oddi dysfunction.
Evaluation of unexplained acute and acute recurrent pancreatitis using endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, sphincter of Oddi manometry and endoscopic ultrasound.
An etiology was identified in the majority of patients with unexplained pancreatitis: Moderate to severe chronic pancreatitis was found in over one-fifth of these patients and bile analysis, SOM, and EUS are useful tools in the evaluation of unexplained acute pancreatitis.
Frequency of Papillary Dysfunction Among Cholecystectomized Patients
Dysfunction of the sphincter of Oddi diagnosed by ERCP manometry may account for the abdominal pain seen in 14% of the patients with postcholecystectomy syndrome and may rarely be the cause of an elevated serum alkaline phosphatase and/or amylase when abdominal pain is not present.
