How Gallstones are Formed?

  • Dr. M Maran who regularly does gallbladder surgery explains how gallstones are formed, the types of gallstones.

We saw that gallstones are not really stones in real sense but rather a solid or pieces of solid that may form inside the gallbladder during the process of concentration. This concentrated bile has to be periodically emptied by the gallbladder to remain healthy. But sometimes this does not happen due to many reasons. So in other words, if the bile becomes over concentrated and is not drained properly, the gallstones are formed which necessitates gallbladder surgery. Let us get a little deeper to understand this better. Dr Maran MDr Maran is an experienced Surgeon in the field of Gastro-enterology.

Role of Gallbladder in Digestion

  • Gallbladder removal surgery can be better understood if the role of gallbladder in digestion is better understood

An understanding of the function of gallbladder is necessary to understand why gallbladder removal surgery is the solution for presence of gallstones. Gallbladder is the place where the bile, a potent digestive juice produced by the liver is stored in a very concentrated form. But before it is stored it is imperative to understand when it is stored. Every day about 800 – 1000 ml of bile is produced by the liver. There is a duct that runs from the liver to the duodenum that transports the bile produced. But there is a branch in that duct that branches straight into the Gallbladder.
