Biliary hyperkinesia is typically diagnosed in patients with biliary-like pain and no evidence of gall stones on imaging modalities but who have had biliary scintigraphy scan (HIDA) that shows ejection fraction ≥ 80%. This study aims to identify whether the removal of the gall bladder can alleviate the symptoms associated with biliary hyperkinesia. Systematic search following PRISMA guidelines was done from inception to January 2020 using PubMed/Medline, OVID, Embase, Cochrane database of systemic reviews, Cochrane central register of controlled trials, The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE) and Cochrane library databases. Results were expressed as risk ratios (RR) for dichotomous outcomes together with 95% confidence intervals (CI) or mean differences (MD) or standardized MD (SMD) for continuous outcomes. A meta-analysis was done using random-effect model in RevMan 5.4 software. Thirteen studies met the inclusion criteria and were included in the review. A total of 332 patients diagnosed with biliary hyperkinesia underwent cholecystectomy, of whom 303 (91.3%) reported symptomatic improvement RR 8.67 (95% CI 4.95, 15.16) P = 0.01. Six studies described abnormal histological features in 163/181 (90.05%) with high GB EF. RR 7.88 (95% CI 3.94, 15.75) P = 0.08. Chronic cholecystitis n = 155 (95%), cholesterolosis n = 7 (4.3%), and one showed features of acute cholecystitis. Patients with typical biliary colic symptoms without gallstones and markedly high ejection fraction might benefit from having cholecystectomy to alleviate their symptoms.
