Gallbladder surgery, gallbladder removal is one of the most common surgical procedures. Gallbladder removal surgery is usually performed with minimally invasive techniques, and the medical name for this procedure is laparoscopic cholecystectomy or gallbladder laparoscopy.
The gallbladder is an organ located in the lower surface of the liver. It consists of three main parts, the fundus or the bottom of the sac, the trunk, and the infandibulum. The function of this sac is to hold the yellow bile fluid BILE. This fluid is secreted from the liver when food enters the stomach and then passed through the bile duct into the gallbladder. Bile is poured into the small intestine through the common bile duct. The job of this liquid is to create a stable emulsion on food fats that is done in the duodenum. Sometimes a person develops gallstones, which can be treated with surgery or laparoscopy if the disease worsens. During surgery, Dr. Sajjad Noor Shafiee, a specialist in gallbladder surgery in Mashhad, usually removes gallbladder laparoscopic surgery in Mashhad and laser gallbladder surgery in Mashhad. In this case, after a while, the bile duct expands and the gallbladder works.
Possible gallbladder problems are usually with gallstones, which are usually small and hard, and mainly include cholesterol and bile salts that form in the gallbladder or bile duct.
It is not clear why some people have gallstones. But the causes can be gender, pregnancy, age over 40, and being overweight. Gallstones are more common in the elderly and in some people due to family history of the disease.
There are no known ways to prevent gallstones.
These stones may block blood flow to the gallbladder and cause irritation and severe pain in the abdomen, vomiting, indigestion, and sometimes fever.
If gallstones block the bile duct, the skin may turn yellow.
