Biliary dyskinesia refers to altered tonus of the sphincter of Oddi (usually increased pressure), disturbance in the coordination of contraction of the biliary ducts, and/or reduction in the speed of emptying of the biliary tree.

Failure of the biliary sphincter can be distinguished from the pancreatic sphincter.[1]


Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been used to treat the condition.[2]

Symptoms may persist after cholecystectomy.[3]
