Author: Zaki, Randa; Khair, A.M.; Toum, Mohamed; M, Numan.; Ibrahim, M.M.
Abstract: Background: different non-cardiac conditions like cholecystitis, pancreatitis, pneumonitis, gastric distension have been reported to mimic heart disease both clinically and electrocardiographically. Aims: to study the ECG changes in the perioperative period in patients with gallbladder disease and to compare these changes. Patients and methods: a total number of 76 patients with symptomatic gallbladder disease are included in this study. All patients underwent open cholecystectomy. Pre- and postoperative ECG reports are studied and compared. Results: the majority of the patients (88.2%) have changes in the preoperative ECG reports. Among those changes, the ischemic changes were more common than the non-ischemic (74.4% vs 53.8%). Most of these preoperative changes disappeared in the postoperative ECG reports; in 51.7% of the ischemic and 78.6% of the non-ischemic. Conclusion: ECG in patients with gallbladder disease may show some ischemic and other non-ischemic changes. Most of these changes either disappear or remain static in the postoperative ECG.
