Cholelithiasis and Its Management: A Clinical Study

Background: The goal of this study was to look into the clinical presentation, incidence, and differences in presentation of Cholelithiasis in different age/sex groups, as well as the various therapy options.

Methods: This study was conducted at our hospital’s department of general surgery on 50 patients who presented with symptoms and signs suggestive of gallstones and were diagnosed with Cholelithiasis based on radiological and laboratory evidence from October 2016 to September 2018. The findings of the disease management, postoperative complications, and histological assessment of the specimen were compared to those of other research.

The majority of those affected are between the ages of 17 and 79. Almost all of the patients felt dyspepsia and discomfort in the right hypchondrium. The diagnosis of cholelithiasis was confirmed by USG abdomen in 100% of the patients. The patients in our study were on average 48 years old. Gallstones of several kinds were the most common. Next on the list are cholesterol stones, followed by pigment stones. Females made up 52% of the patients. All 50 patients had surgery, with 39 undergoing open cholecystectomy and 11 undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. All 50 gall bladders were sent for HPE, and 49 of them were diagnosed with chronic cholecystitis and one with adenocarcinoma.

Cholelithiasis is the most common type of cholelithiasis.
