In 57 cholecystectomized and 32 non-operated patients the authors tested the value of the test with a choleretic and morphine, described by Debray, for the diagnosis of hypertonic dyskinesia of the sphincter of Oddi. For objectivization of the test also SGOT, gamma-GT and diastase in serum and urine were tested. In patients with a positive Debray test during the fourth hour a rise of SGOT occurred, with an average from 24 to 73 units, while in patients after cholecystectomy with a negative Debray test a rise of enzyme levels was recorded. Assessment of gamma-GT had no further advantages; the diastase values did not change in the course of the test. From the results it may be concluded that assessment of enzymes increases the value of this test.
