Electrogastrography (EGG) is a method of recording and interpretation of gastric electrical activity. Because of its ease to use, cutaneous EGG has gained wide acceptance. The electric activity of stomach is corelated to its contractile activity.Gallstones usually don't cause chronic dyspepsia as is known from literature but billiary colic and dyspepsia are very common in adult population of patients with cholelithiasis.The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of cholelithiasis on gastric electric activity (GEA) wich was recorded via transcutaneous electrogastrography. The study is included 10 patients (M/F: 5/5 ; Age: 52, 20±6.29 years ; BMI: 28, 69±1, 36 kg/m2) with cholecystolithiasis diagnosed by transabdominal ultrasound and none of them had parameters of cholecystitis. Exclusion criteria were history of abdominal surgery, malignancy, non ulcer dyspepsia, cardiovascular, pulmonal or other diseases as well as hystory of functional gastrointestinal disorders.The EGG findings were compared to those of 51 healthy subjects (M/F: 15/36 ; Age: 47, 63±17, 13 years ; BMI: 25, 36±4, 67 kg/m2). Following EGG parameters were analyzed: dominant frequency (DF), dominant freqency in normal range (DFNR), coefficient variation of dominant frequency (CVDF), dominant power (DP), postprandial increase in dominant power (PPIDP), bradygastria (B), tachygastria (T) and arrhytmia (A). The EGG recording time was 45 min during fasting and 60 min after standardized meal (2517 KJ). The duration of meal consumption was 15 min with subject in a semi-recumbent position. Patients with cholecystolithiasis had statistical significant higher body mass index (BMI) than controls but there wasn't difference in mean age. There are statistical significant diferences between groups in the fasting state in following parameters: DFNR and tachygastria were lower but CVDF and arrhytmia were higher in cholelithiasis group. In the fed state cholelithiasis group had statistically signifficant lower DF, DFNR, PPIDP vs CVDF, tachygastria and arrhytmia that were higher in this group. Patients with cholecystolithiasis clearly exhibit differences in gastric myoelectrical activity compared to normal subjects and could cause dyspeptic symptoms. These findings come from small group of patients with cholecystolithiasis and need further investigations to be clarified.
