Cholecystolithiasis

Calculus Gallbladder


Presentation

  • We report the case of a patient who presented with a life-threatening upper gastro-intestinal bleeding due to erosion of the cystic artery by cholecystolithiasis and cholecystitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • No significant difference was present in operating time between EMIC and LC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The present study was carried out to evaluate the relative merits of ultrasonography and roentgenography in 50 cases of suspected cholecystolithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to clarify the association between adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder and cholecystolithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND/AIMS: The objective of the present study was to measure gastric emptying time of solids and semisolids in dyspeptic individuals with cholecystolithiasis before and 6 months after cholecystectomy in order to determine whether cholecystectomy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Episodic Pain
  • A high preoperative GIQLI score, episodic pain, and duration of pain of 1 year or less were associated with postoperative absence of pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Early Satiety
  • Dyspeptic symptoms (pain, upper abdominal gases, early satiety, nausea and vomiting) improved after surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • The prevalence of cholecytolithiasis in patients with ESRD on HD is similar to that of a normal population though some data suggested a higher prevalence in HD patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These data suggest that juxtapapillary diverticula are associated only with choledocholithiasis and not with gallbladder lithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The observations suggest that the gallbladder epithelium may produce CEA and/or some CEA-related antigens, except to NCA and BGP-I, and that the CEA level in bile may be raised in the inflammatory process of cholecystolithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Oral cholecystography should be done in patients with normal ultrasound examination if the symptoms are strongly suggestive of cholecystolithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our results suggest that the popularity of the laparoscopic technique cannot be attributed to pulmonary preservation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hyperalgesia
  • There were no significant relations between the hyperalgesia and the clinical findings. CONCLUSION: Cholecystolithiasis leads to significant hyperalgesia in the somatic area, where pain was referred to during the acute attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • RESULTS: Before treatment, the LI, UCB%, BSI and Z-value in the LDG treated group were 1.298 /- 0.265, 34.72 /-2.96, 0.353 /-0.093 and 0.556 /-0.499, respectively, which was decreased after the 2-week treatment to 0.926 /-0.208, 8.93 /-1.19, 0.154 /-0.056[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Further development is required if this technique is to be included in the alternative treatments for the management of gall stones.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Although endoscopic papillotomy is now considered established treatment for choledocholithiasis, therapeutic results of endoscopic papillotomy alone without subsequent cholecystectomy in patients with cholecystolithiasis have not been well[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis to compare the two treatment alternatives. METHODS: We searched PubMed, CNKI and the Cochrane library for trials that compared MLC and SILC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Somatosensory changes in these areas may be important in the persistent pain after treatment and may help to develop treatment strategies for abdominal pain in the post-cholecystectomy syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Because the prognosis is controversial, it is very unusual for any surgical intervention to occur after imaging-based diagnosis of adenomyomatosis itself, but surgical treatments are often considered in cases associated with stones or cholecystitis ([synapse.koreamed.org]

  • Disturbances of the bidirectional brain–gut interaction are recognized in the pathophysiology of FGID, as well as visceral hypersensitivity and impaired gastrointestinal motility 5.[journals.lww.com]

Prevention

  • Leakage of bile should be prevented during laparoscopic cholecystectomy, even in patients not diagnosed as having cancer preoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Get Rid of Gallstones Naturally One of the main home remedies that you need to follow to prevent gallstones is a healthy lifestyle. You need to maintain a healthy body weight to prevent gallstones.[doctorabel.us]

  • 50% of patients receiving octreotide, but the reported prevalence of cholecystolithiasis in patients treated with octreotide is variable and little is known about gallstone incidence, composition, pathogenetic mechanisms, dissolvability, and primary prevention[wikigenes.org]
