Bladder Stones

Bladder Stones

Gallbladder is a small organ located in the upper right abdomen and below the liver. It stores bile that helps with digestion. The most common reason behind the formation of gallstone is the high cholesterol in the bile.

Gallstones are stone-like things that develop in the gallbladder also known as the bile duct. The size of the gallstones can vary in size from extremely tiny grains of sand to as huge as golf ball-sized stone. Surprisingly it’s the smaller stones that cause more trouble as it leaves the gallbladder and gets stuck in the way. Whereas larger stones stay in the gallbladder so it’s not a lot of trouble to extract.

The surgery could be both less invasive and highly invasive in nature. In any case, you would require a well-experienced gallbladder surgeon for the recovery process to be convenient. Dr. Rajesh Kumar Ranjan is one of the most experienced gallbladder surgeon in Patna.

Most of the gallstones are formed up of cholesterol and a small number of percentages are formed of bilirubin.

Cholesterol: Too much cholesterol in your bile can lead to cause stones or cholesterol stones. Cholesterol is a common substance found throughout the body but when it increases in the bile, it causes the most common type of gallstone.

Bilirubin: Bilirubin is a substance created when old red blood cells are destroyed by the liver. In certain cases and some conditions, liver produces more bilirubin than required. When the gallbladder could not break down the excess bilirubin then pigment gallstone is formed.

Gallstone Diagnosis

  • Blood tests
  • Ultrasound
  • CT scan
  • Cholescintigraphy (HIDA scan)
  • Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)
  • Endoscopic ultrasound
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Gallstone Treatment

Most people with gallstone can pass it through their bodies with the help of some medication. There are two procedures that a doctor will use to take out the gallstone. Those are:

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy: The most common gall bladder stone treatment is Laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A bladder stone surgeon will pass a narrow tube called a laparoscope through a small cut into your belly. The tube holds a light, a camera, and instruments. Then the gall bladder is taken out through another small cut. After the gall bladder treatment, the patient can go home the same day.

Open cholecystectomy: This process involves the gall bladder surgeon doing a bigger incision in your belly to remove your gallbladder. After this operation, you would need to stay in the hospital for few days.
