Bile Reflux

Definition

Bile reflux is a condition characterized by bile flowing upward from the small intestine into the stomach and esophagus. Bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver, can inflame and then damage the esophageal lining and stomach.

Diagnosis

Bile reflux can be easily diagnosed based on clinical symptoms. However, distinguishing between acid reflux and bile reflux may prove more difficult. To differentiate between these two very similar conditions, the following tests may be done: endoscopy, ambulatory acid tests, and esophageal impedance.

Symptoms and Signs

The symptoms of bile reflux are often similar to those of acid reflux. The distinguishing difference is that bile affects the stomach, causing inflammation and a burning pain in the upper abdomen. Other signs of bile reflux include: nausea, vomiting bile, occasional couching, unexpected weight loss, and frequent heartburn.

Causes

Bile reflux is caused by failure of pyloric valve that connects the small intestine and stomach to close properly, allowing potentially toxic digestive juices to flow back into the stomach. Damage to the pyloric valve may be caused by complications in gastric or gallbladder surgery as well as peptic ulcer. Meanwhile, bile that refluxes into the esophagus is caused by the malfunctioning of the esophageal sphincter, which separates the esophagus and stomach.
