Pathogenesis and treatment of gallstones

Abstract

Many reports have been published during the past year concerning gallstone disease. A number have focused on gallstone pathogenesis, including characterization of cholesterol crystal promoting nucleation factors. Many other studies have dealt with laparoscopic cholecystectomy and, in particular, the optimal approach to determining whether common bile duct stones are present. There continues to be considerable debate in this regard. Magnetic resonance cholangiography has been more intensively examined and compared with the current standard, endoscopic cholangiography.
