Gallbladder and biliary duct distension or application of algesic chemicals to the gallbladder reduces coronary blood flow (Cullen and Reese 1952), changes heart rate (Cullen and Reese 1952; Hodge et al. 1947; Ordway and Longhurst 1983), changes ECG configuration (Hodge et al. 1947), or increases indices of cardiac contractility (Ordway and Longhurst 1983). Single-unit recordings from a population of afferents in the splanchnic nerve show that their threshold for activation coincides with maximum physiological levels of biliary pressure; more vigorous discharges are recorded when biliary pressure reaches noxious levels (Cervero 1982).
