Article: [Determination of intestinal permeability in cholelithiasis patients by oral administration of technetium-99m-diethylenetriaminepentaacetatic acid].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To investigate the intestinal permeability of patients with cholelithiasis of different types. Technetium-99m-diethylenetriaminepentaacetatic acid (99mTc-DTPA) at the dose of 185 MBq (5 mCi) was administered orally to 56 patients of cholelithiasis, 15 cases of cholesterol stone (CS group) and 41 cases of pigment stone (PS group) based on the cross section of the stone during operation, and 17 healthy controls. A 24 h urine collection was obtained after the ingestion of the tracer to calculate the urinary excretion of DTPA. The mean percentage of the total ingested dose of 99mTc-DTPA excreted in a 24 h urinary excretion was 5.0%+/-3.6% in the CS group, not significantly different from that in the control group (4.5%+/-3.4%. F=2.18, P>0.05), and the mean percentage of the total ingested dose of 99mTc-DTPA excreted in a 24 h urinary excretion of the PS group was 10.5%+/-6.9%, significantly higher than that in the control group (F=7.62, P<0.05), showing a significantly increase of intestinal permeability (P<0.05). The intestinal permeability of the patients of pigment stone is higher than that of the healthy subjects. Hyperpermeability may be a factor of the pathogenesis of pigment stone.Zhonghua yi xue za zhi 02/2007; 87(7):464-7.

ABSTRACT: To investigate the relationship between anatomic abnormalities and malfunction of Oddi sphincter with formation of bile duct pigment gallstone. One hundred and twenty-three patients with a T tube after cholecystectomy and choledochotomy were divided into reflux group and control group by measuring the amounts of radioactivity of (99m)Tc-DTPA in the bile. Among them 53 were selected randomly to undergo choledochoscopic manometry. Basal pressure of Oddi's sphincter (SOBP), amplitude of Oddi's sphincter (SOCA), frequency of contraction (SOF), duration of contraction (SOD), duodenal pressure (DP), common bile duct pressure (CBDP) were scored and analyzed. The level of plasma motilin and serum gastrin of 45 patients and 12 healthy volunteers were measured by radioimmunoassay. The incidence rates of duodenal descending part diverticulum in patients with bile duct pigment stones, patients without alimentary tract diseases, patients with gallbladder polyps, patients with gallbladder stones were studied by means of barium meal examination. The incidence rates of intraduodenal peri-ampullary diverticulum in patients with primary bile duct pigment stones, patients with bile duct stone and gallbladder stones, patients with bile duct stones originating from the gallbladder, patients with inflammation and stricture of the extremity of bile duct and papilla, patients with cancer of the extremity of bile duct and papilla, patients with post-cholecystectomy syndrome were detected by duodenoscope. Of the patients, 44 were detected with duodenal-biliary reflux (35.8%). SOBP, SOCA and CBDP in the reflux group were much lower than those in control group (P < 0.001). The level of serum gastrin and plasma motilin of the reflux group were much lower than those of control group (P < 0.01). Positive correlation was found between level of motilin and SOBP while level of gastrin was positively correlated with SOBP and CBDP. The incidence of duodenal diverticulum in patients with bile duct pigment stone was 36.62%, which was higher than that of the other 3 groups. The incidence rate of intraduodenal peri-ampullary diverticulum in patients with primary bile duct pigment stone was higher than that of patients with inflammation and stricture of the extremity of bile duct and papilla, patients with cancer of the extremity of bile duct and papilla and patients with bile duct stones originating from the gallbladder. The patients with bile duct pigment stone have apparent duodenal-biliary reflux and infection of the bile duct. The state of structure and function of Oddi's sphincter is correlated significantly with bile duct pigment stone. The anatomic abnormalities and malfunction of Oddi's sphincter played an important role in the formation of bile duct pigment stone.Zhonghua wai ke za zhi [Chinese journal of surgery] 01/2007; 45(1):58-61.
Article: Oral (99m)Tc-DTPA simultaneous determination of duodenobiliary reflux and intestinal permeability in patients after choledocholithotomy plus T-tube drainage.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The high choledocholithiasis recurrence rate after choledocholithotomy plus T-tube drainage is related to biliary bacterial infection. These bacteria are from the intestine, either via the major duodenal papilla, or the penetrating intestinal mucosa. It is therefore possible that duodenobiliary reflux and increased intestinal permeability exist in patients who have undergone choledocholithotomy. This study was undertaken to find the evidence of duodenobiliary reflux and to assess intestinal permeability in these patients. Twenty-one patients who underwent choledocholithotomy plus T-tube drainage 2 months ago, and 11 healthy volunteers (controls) took orally 185MBq of (99m)Tc-DTPA. The patients' bile was collected in the next 2 hours via a T-tube and the (99m)Tc-DTPA radioactivity in the bile was counted. Intestinal permeability was evaluated by measuring the 24-hour urinary excretion rate of ingested (99m)Tc-DTPA in both patients and controls. In 6 of the 21 patients, radioactivity in the bile was detected. The intestinal permeability was significantly higher in patients (11.45%+/-6.16%) than that in controls (3.61%+/-1.63%, t=3.28, P<0.05). Duodenobiliary reflux exists in patients who have undergone choledocholithotomy plus T-tube drainage. The intestinal permeability is higher in these patients than in healthy subjects. Duodenobiliary reflux and increased intestinal permeability may be factors of cholelithiasis recurrence.Hepatobiliary & pancreatic diseases international: HBPD INT 11/2005; 4(4):593-6. · 1.08 Impact Factor
