Title: Ultrasonographic Assessment of the Gallbladder Motor Function
Author: Hassan, Mohammed
Abstract: Back ground: Ultrasound is a useful imaging modality increasingly used in the assessment of the haptobiliary system; we have evaluated the gall bladder motor function by using ultrasound to assess the contribution of this modality in assessing patients with symptoms simulating gallbladder disease. Design: Prospective controlled study. Setting: In Omdurman Military hospital. Objectives: Evaluated the usefulness of using ultrasound for the assessment of the gallbladder motor function in health and disease. Methods : One hundred thirty four patients were divided into three groups , group one are patients with symptoms simulating gallbladder disease , group tow are controls and group three are patients with silent gallstones . the fasting and postprandial volumes were studied in each group and the results were collected Results: The gallbladder motor function was found to be normal in the three groups but the contractility of the gallbladder is found to be mildly reduced in the ill patients compared to the controls and the postprandial volume in patient with silent gallstones is found to be more than that of the controls . Conclusion: There are some variations in the volumes of the gallbladders in the healthy Sudanese people .The gallbladder motor function in the diseased patients is reduced probably as other body functions are reduced and further study is needed. The gallbladder containing silent stones remains normally functioning unless complicated with infection, obstruction, etc …
