This study is an in-depth retrospective review of pediatric patients diagnosed with biliary dyskinesia who underwent a cholecystectomy. The focus is to capture data pertaining to patient characteristics at presentation (chief complaint, symptoms, physical examination findings, etc.), diagnostic work up, medical and surgical management, and outcomes following cholecystectomy. The goals of this study are two fold: 1) to assess the current variability in pediatric medical and surgical management for this diagnosis, and 2) to generate preliminary data to inform the design of a prospective observational trial to study the variability in patient presentation, methods of diagnosis, patterns of care, and outcomes in biliary dyskinesia patients.
