Summary of "Gallbladder dyskinesia is associated with an impaired postprandial FGF19 response in critically ill patients."

Critical illness is associated with a disturbed regulation of gastrointestinal hormones resulting in functional and metabolic anomalies. FGF19 is an ileum-derived metabolic hormone induced by bile salts upon gallbladder emptying after enteral nutrient stimulation. Our aim was to study the nutrient-stimulated FGF19 response in 24 patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) compared with 12 healthy controls. All subjects received intraduodenal high-lipid nutrient infusion for 120min. Blood was collected every 30min until 1 hour after infusion and gallbladder emptying was studied by ultrasound. Serum levels of bile salts and FGF19 were assessed. ICU-patients had significantly higher fasting bile salt serum levels compared with controls, while FGF19 serum levels were similar. In both groups, nutrient infusion elicited substantial bile salt elevations (P<0.001), peaking at 90min, albeit with a significantly lower peak in the ICU-patients (P=0.029). In controls, FGF19 was significantly elevated relative to baseline from 120min onwards (P<0.001). In ICU-patients, the FGF19 response was blunted, as reflected by significantly lower FGF19 elevations at 120, 150 and 180min (P<0.05) and significantly lower AUC values compared with controls (P<0.001). Gallbladder dysmotility was associated with the impaired FGF19 response in critical illness. The gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) correlated positively with FGF19 AUC values (ρ=+0,34, P=0.034). In 10 out of 24 ICU-patients gallbladder emptying was disturbed. These patients had significantly lower FGF19 AUC values (P<0.001). Gallbladder emptying and the FGF19 response were respectively disturbed or absent in patients receiving norepinephrine.
The nutrient-stimulated FGF19 response is impaired in ICU-patients, which is mechanistically linked to gallbladder dysmotility in critical illness. This may contribute to disturbed liver metabolism in these patients and has potential as a nutritional biomarker. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A motility disorder characterized by biliary COLIC, absence of GALLSTONES, and an abnormal GALLBLADDER ejection fraction. It is caused by gallbladder dyskinesia and/or SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION.

Sequelae of gastrectomy from the second week after operation on. Include recurrent or anastomotic ulcer, postprandial syndromes (DUMPING SYNDROME and late postprandial hypoglycemia), disordered bowel action, and nutritional deficiencies.

A process whereby bile is delivered from the gallbladder into the duodenum. The emptying is caused by both contraction of the gallbladder and relaxation of the sphincter mechanism at the choledochal terminus.

Tumors or cancer of the gallbladder.

A disease that is characterized by frequent urination, excretion of large amounts of dilute URINE, and excessive THIRST. Etiologies of diabetes insipidus include deficiency of antidiuretic hormone (also known as ADH or VASOPRESSIN) secreted by the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS, impaired KIDNEY response to ADH, and impaired hypothalamic regulation of thirst.
