Cholelithiasis and cholecystitis

Ji Young Bang, Stuart Sherman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Gallstones are common in the United States and are discovered incidentally in the majority of cases. They can result in important sequelae, including biliary pain, cholecystitis, and, less commonly, Mirrizi syndrome (compression of the common hepatic duct by a stone in the neck of the gallbladder) and a cholecystoenteric fistula. Treatment often includes laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Management strategies are described.
