  • possible
  • Another possible mechanism is that damage of the gallbladder mucosa releases phospholipase which then interacts with the lecithin in the bile, converting it to lysolecithin . (healthhype.com)
  • Objectives: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has replaced open cholecystectomy as the standard procedure for gallbladder removal whenever possible. (sages.org)
  • mucosal
  • citation needed] Cholesterolosis is characterized by an outgrowth of the mucosal lining of the gallbladder into fingerlike projections due to the excessive accumulation of cholesterol and triglycerides within macrophages in the epithelial lining. (wikipedia.org)
  • The second study reviewed 25,900 gallbladder specimens and found 150 patients with cancer and 44 patients with calcified gallbladders of two types (intramural calcification and selective mucosal calcification). (wikipedia.org)
  • The name strawberry gallbladder comes from the typically stippled appearance of the mucosal surface on gross examination, which resembles a strawberry. (wikipedia.org)
  • stones
  • If there were more stones present the gallbladder should be removed. (medhelp.org)
  • The presence of stones in the gallbladder is referred to as cholelithiasis, from the Greek chol- (bile) + lith- (stone) + -iasis (process). (wikipedia.org)
  • A lack of melatonin could significantly contribute to gallbladder stones, as melatonin inhibits cholesterol secretion from the gallbladder, enhances the conversion of cholesterol to bile, and is an antioxidant, which is able to reduce oxidative stress to the gallbladder. (wikipedia.org)
  • intestinal
  • The gallbladder wall's innermost surface is lined by a single layer of columnar cells with a brush border of microvilli, very similar to intestinal absorptive cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unlike elsewhere in the intestinal tract, the gallbladder does not have a muscularis mucosae, and the muscular fibres are not arranged in distinct layers. (wikipedia.org)
  • polyp
  • The main types of polypoid growths of the gallbladder include cholesterol polyp/cholesterosis, cholesterosis with fibrous dysplasia of gallbladder, adenomyomatosis, hyperplastic cholecystosis, and adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • fats
  • When they enter the duodenum, the hormone is secreted and the gallbladder contracts, secreting its contents through the common duct into the duodenal sweep, where it mixes with the bolus of food to help form micelles for absorption of fats and cholesterol. (springer.com)
