Gall Bladder Stone

What is Gall bladder stone?

Gall bladder stones are stone-like hardened deposits of bile materials that develop in the gallbladder. Gall bladder stones are usually made up of cholesterol or bilirubin, which accumulate at the base of your gallbladder and harden into "stones" over time. They can range in size from a sand grain to a ping pong ball.

Types of Gall bladder stone:

  • Cholesterol gallstones- The most common type of gallstones are called Cholesterol gallstones. It appears chalk white or greenish-yellow due to undissolved cholesterol as the main component. 
  • Pigment gallstones- Gallstones that include bilirubin are called pigment gallstones and can be either dark brown or black in colour. It mainly originates from the abnormalities of blood such as hemolytic anemia and liver diseases such as jaundice and cirrhosis. 
  • Mixed gallstones- Gallstones having the look of sticky mud are called mixed gallstones because they combine pigment and cholesterol gallstones. They often develop from infections of the pancreas, liver, and biliary tract.

Symptoms of Gallbladder stone:

Most gallstones do not initially manifest any symptoms. However, symptoms start to happen as gallstones get bigger or when they start clogging bile ducts. The most typical signs of gallstones include the ones listed below:

  • A continuous, excruciating pain in the upper abdomen that worsens quickly and lasts for 30 minutes to several hours.
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Intolerance of fatty foods
  • Belching or gas
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • High fever and Chills
  • Jaundice. 
  • Pain in the back between the shoulder blades
  • Pain in the right shoulder

Causes of Gall bladder stone:

A few possible causes of Gall bladder stone are :

  • Too much cholesterol in your bile:

If your bile has too much cholesterol in it, yellow cholesterol stones could form. These tough stones may develop if your liver manufactures more cholesterol than your bile can process.

  • Excessive bilirubin levels:

Red blood cells are regularly broken down, and as a result, bilirubin is produced. Following its formation, it moves through the liver before being subsequently eliminated from the body. Now your liver may overproduce bilirubin under certain circumstances, such as liver disease and some blood diseases. Pigment gall bladder stones form when your gallbladder is unable to process the additional bilirubin.

  • Concentrated bile due to a full gallbladder:

Your gallbladder has to be able to expel its bile in order to function properly. Insufficient bile excretion can cause bile to become overly concentrated, which can result in the development of stones.

Diagnosis of Gall bladder stone:

  • Ultrasound: 

An easy, non-invasive exam that doesn't involve any preparation or medicine is an abdomen ultrasound. Finding gall bladder stones typically just requires this.

  • CT scan: 

Your doctor can see within your body, including your gallbladder, thanks to specialized X-rays.

  • Blood tests: 

Blood tests check for signs of infection or blockage, and rule out other conditions.

  • MRCP: 

MRCP: Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a specific type of MRI that shows the bile ducts in detail. A magnetic field and radio wave energy pulses are used in this test to create images of your internal organs, including your liver and gallbladder.

  • ERCP: 

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a little more invasive test, which uses a combination of X-rays and endoscopy, which means passing a tiny camera on the end of a long tube down into your upper GI tract, through your throat.

  • Endoscopic ultrasound: 

This examination looks for gallstones using endoscopy and ultrasound.

Treatment of Gall bladder stone:

There are basically two types of gallbladder surgery:

  • Open surgery:

The gallbladder is removed during this treatment by a single, large (5-7 inch) abdominal incision. Open surgery can be required if a gallbladder rupture is possible as a result of severe gallbladder or bile duct inflammation. Due to the size of the incision, patients frequently experience more pain and need more time to recuperate.

  • Laparoscopic surgery:

It is a minimally invasive procedure that removes the gallbladder through four to five small incisions that are each no longer than one inch. The surgical instruments, such as a laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera, are implanted through these minute incisions. As a result, doctors may remove the gallbladder precisely and safely while viewing all of its measurements on a screen.

Prevention of Gall bladder stone:

Your risk of Gallbladder stones can be reduced by making some basic lifestyle modifications, and they are as follow:

  • Consuming a diet rich in fibre and beneficial fats, such as fish oil and olive oil. 
  • Avoiding sugar, processed carbohydrates, and bad fats.
  • Regular exercise.
  • Staying away from diets that cause you to lose a lot of weight quickly.
