Common bile duct pressure and Oddi sphincter pressure in patients with common bile duct stones with and without juxta-ampullar diverticula of the duodenum

Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology
P Funch-JensenM J Oster


Resting common bile duct pressure and Oddi sphincter pressure were measured in 16 patients with common bile duct stones, 8 having in addition a juxta-ampullar diverticulum. Pressure measurements were performed with an infused catheter introduced through an endoscope under direct vision. No significant differences in fasting common bile duct pressures were observed between the two groups. The Oddi sphincter had a phasic activity, and the peak pressure was similar in both groups.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
