Abstract

Aim: Decreased gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) was reported in patients who had abdominal pain and gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. The study aims were to review pathology of GI tract in children with acalculous biliary-type abdominal pain and to evaluate the pain improvement after a 2-week trial of proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Methods: Children below 18 years of age with a history of biliary-type abdominal pain by ROME III criteria were evaluated. All underwent an upper endoscopy and their histologic findings of the proximal GI tract were reviewed. Responses to a 2-week trial of PPI and LC were analyzed. Results: Sixteen were identified with biliary-type abdominal pain with GBEF
