Cholelithiasis is the term used for presence of stones in gall bladder.
Gall bladder is the small organ below the liver in the upper right abdomen.
It is a pouch that stores bile, a yellow green liquid that helps with digestion.
Function of bile-
When food enters the gall bladder a hormone is released, signalling the gall bladder to contract and secrete bile in to the intestine through the duct. The bile thus helps in the digestive process by breaking up the fats.
It also drains waste products from liver in to the small intestine.
Causes of formation –
Bile is made up of bile acids, cholesterol, phospholipids, bile pigments, electrolytes and water.
Gall stones may form if the bile contains too much of Cholesterol, too much of bilirubin (the bile pigment) or not enough bile salts. Why these changes occur in Bile is not fully understood.
