Gallstones : surgery link

Patients undergoing major abdominal surgery may have an increased risk of developing gallstones within three years after surgery

Patients undergoing major abdominal surgery may have an increased risk of developing gallstones within three years after surgery.

In a study conducted at the University of Sydney in New South Wales, almost a third (28 per cent) of a study group of patients who'd undergone major abdominal surgery had developed gallstones between one and three years after their operation.

"The physiological disturbances of certain abdominal operations such as ileal resection, which interferes wtih the normal enteropepatic bile salt cycle may produce metabolic disturbances particularly likely to lead to gallstone formation," wrote the authors.
