Dr. Kamran Ayub performs area’s first specialized Sphincter of Oddi Manometry procedure

Joliet, IL (February 9, 2012)— The Sphincter of Oddi is a muscle valve that controls the flow of digestive juices (which includes bile and pancreatic juice) through ducts from the liver and pancreas into the small intestine. When it’s working properly, the Sphincter of Oddi opens to allow bile and pancreatic juice to flow through and then closes again. However, in a condition called Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, the sphincter muscle does not open when it should and goes into spasm. This prevents the bile and pancreatic juice from flowing through and causes a backup of digestive juices which can cause bouts of severe pain in the abdomen.
