Assessment Of Correlation Of Type Of Gallstones With The Type Of Mucosal Response In Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Osheen Sharma, Mohit Mohindra

Background: Gallstones are hardened deposits of the digestive fluid bile that can form within the gallbladder. The gallbladder mucus plays a regulatory role in cholelithiasis as it promotes the nucleation of stones. Mucus, calcium and lipids act in concert to form the gallstones. Hence; we planned the present study to assess various gallstone characteristics with the type of mucosal response in gall bladder. Materials & methods: The present study included assessment of various gallstone characteristics with the type of mucosal response in gall bladder. A total of 30 patients scheduled to undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) were included in the present study. LC was done in all the patients. The following features were noted on gross examination of gallbladder: dimensions, outer surface, wall thickness and mucosa. The gall stones (received either in the specimen or the container) were assessed for various parameters i.e. number, size and morphologic type. All the results were compiled and analysed by SPSS software. Results: Mixed type of gallstone was the predominant type of gallstones observed in present study. We didnít observe any significant difference while assessing the association of mucosal response of mucosa with the type of gallstones. Conclusion: No correlation is observed in between the mucosal response of mucosa with the type of gallstones. Key words: Gallstones, Laparoscopic cholecystectomy
