Drugs for Dissolving Gallstones A

Altitude Meteorism

Following its secretion from liver into bile, water-insoluble cholesterol is held in solution in the form of micellar complexes with bile acids and phospholipids. When more cholesterol is secreted than can be emulsified, it precipitates and forms gallstones (cholelithiasis). Precipitated cholesterol can be reincorporated into micelles, provided the cholesterol concentration in bile is below saturation. Thus, cholesterol-containing stones can be dissolved slowly. This effect can be achieved by long-term oral administration of chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA) or ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA). Both are physiologically occurring, stereoisomeric bile acids (position of the 7-hydroxy group being p in UCDA and a in CDCA). Normally, they represent a small proportion of the total amount of bile acid present in the body (circle diagram in A) however, this increases considerably with chronic administration because of enterohepatic cycling, p. 38). Bile acids undergo almost complete reabsorption in the...

Gallbladder Disease

US is the method of choice for the diagnosis of gallbladder disease. Its sensitivity for gallbladder calculi approaches almost 100 , and it is also very well suited to evaluate changes of the gallbladder wall. Cholesterol polyps are small, benign lesions that adhere to the gallbladder wall. They appear as hyperechoic structures of 12 mm and may be easily distinguished from calculi, since they cast no shadow and are immobile (Fig. 7). Chronic cholecystitis is typically associated with chole-cystolithiasis, a thickened gallbladder wall and a reduced gallbladder lumen. Mirizzi's syndrome is a complication of chronic calculous cholecystitis a gallstone impacted within the cystic duct or Hartmann's pouch acts as a foreign body and creates an inflammatory reaction. Stenosis or obstruction of the adjacent common hepatic duct may occur either due to this inflammation or due to direct erosion of the stone through the stone into the ductal lumen, with a subsequent bilio-biliary fistula. The...

Dehydroepiandrosterone DHEA

Polypeptide hormone synthesized in the A cells of the islets of Langerhans that inhibits the secretion of insulin and glucagons. It causes hyperglycemia, slows gastric emptying, decreases gastric acid secretion. Somatostatin inhibits CCK secretion leading to gallstones in patients with somatostatin secreting pancreatic tumors.

Health Benefits of Complex Carbohydrates

Gallstones in rural areas. g Heaton (33) has pointed out that dietary fiber exerts its effects throughout the length of the gastrointestinal tract. In the mouth it stimulates salivary flow and in the stomach it dilutes the contents and prolongs storage. In the small intestine fiber is a diluent of the contents and delays absorption and in the large intestine it acts as a diluent, bacterial substrate and traps water. Finally, dietary fiber softens and enlarges the stool. To expand on some of the above, constipation is relieved by the addition of fiber to the diet, the most effective fiber being wheat bran (34). Fiber may also restore normal bowel function in individuals who have become laxative-dependent (35). Paradoxically, fiber may also reduce diarrhea (36). Patients with irritable bowel syndrome also respond to a high fiber diet (37) as do subjects with diverticular disease (38). Heaton (39) has also reviewed the role of dietary fiber in the prevention and treatment of...

Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

The incidence of gallbladder disease increases with age. Most patients are middle-aged or older women, often ones who have borne several children and gained weight during the aging process. Since there is a tendency for gallbladder disease to be familial, some young people of both sexes with a familial history can be affected, as well as young women who have taken oral contraceptives. Risk factors include obesity, middle age, female gender, and Native American or Hispanic Latino ancestry. Prevalence of gallstones is low in African Americans however, African Americans with sickle cell disease may have gallstones at a younger age than other populations.

Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

Reinforce pain control and deep-breathing exercises until the incision is completely healed. The patient may need instruction on control of elimination after this surgery. The continued use of opiate-type analgesics for 7 to 10 days may necessitate the use of laxatives or suppositories, which are generally prescribed by the physician before discharge. Explain that gradual resumption of both a normal diet and activity aid normal elimination. Instruct the patient to report to the physician if any new symptoms occur, such as the appearance of jaundice accompanied by pain, chills and fever, dark urine, or light-colored stools. Usually, the patient has no complications and is able to resume normal activity within a few weeks. Instruct the patient who has been treated nonsurgically with bile salts or extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy about a low-fat diet to avoid recurrence of gallstones.

Echo Ranging Of The Body

George Ludwig, who had underwater ranging experience during World War II, and F. W. Struthers embedded hard gallstones in canine muscles to determine the feasibility of detecting them ultrasonically. Later, Ludwig (1950) made a number of time-of-flight measurements of sound speed through arm, leg, and thigh muscles. He found the average to be cav 1540 m s, which is the standard value still used today. The sound speed, c, can be determined from the time, t, taken by sound to pass through a tissue of known thickness, d, from the equation, c d t. He found the sound speeds to be remarkably similar, varying in most soft tissues by only a few percent. Normalized speed of sound measurements taken more recently are displayed in Figure 1.2.

Background and Introduction

However, there was a plethora of epidemiologic studies47-51 which suggested a link between HRT (combined estrogen-progestin therapy) and an increased risk of breast cancer. Metaanalyses of the published studies indicated a direct correlation between a longer duration of use of HRT and a higher risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women.52 Apart from these studies, there was also an interest in determining if estrogen plus progestin therapy altered the risk for CHD events in postmenopausal women with established coronary disease, and between January 1993 and September 1994, 2763 women were enrolled in the Heart and Estrogen progestin Replacement Study (HERS). After a follow-up of 4.1 years, Hulley and colleagues53 reported that estrogen plus progestin did not reduce the overall rate of CHD events in postmenopausal women with established coronary disease however, estrogen plus progestin did increase the rate of thromboembolic events and gallbladder disease. A subsequent open-label...

Metabolic derangements that accompany liver failure

Common bile duct obstruction with gallstone look for history of gallstones or the four Fs (female, forty, fertile, fat). Ultrasound can often image the stone if not, use endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. Pancreatitis more than 80 of cases are due to alcohol arid, gallstones. Other causes include hypertriglyceridemia, viral infections (mumps, coxsac.kie virus), trauma, and medications

Acute Calculous Cholecystitis

Acute cholecystitis is the inflammation of the gallbladder following persistent obstruction of the neck of the gallbladder or cystic duct by a gallstone. The gallbladder wall becomes edematous and thickened (> 4 mm) due to mucosal ischemia, impaired venous return, and subsequent release of platelet activating factor as well as leukotrienes C4 and prostaglandins. Part of the disease course is a secondary bacterial invasion of the gallbladder wall with subsequent fever and leukocytosis. Patients present with right upper quadrant pain, along with nausea and vomiting, which gradually worsens. Laboratory tests usually show only mild elevation of bilirubin levels and alkaline phosphatase, indicating biliary tree obstruction. The obstruction is usually transient as intracholecystic pressure rises the stone is dislodged. Symptoms are then relieved and inflammation resolves. In approximately 10 of patients, the disease course is characterized by the development of complications such as...

Identification of the Deceased

These X-rays can then be obtained to use for comparison with those of the unidentified body. X-rays of virtually any area of the body can be suitable for comparison. Identification can be based not only on peculiarities of the bones but on soft tissue calcification enteric accretions (e.g., gallstones, kidney stones, etc.) and opaque stints, filters, clips, surgical screws, etc. Positive identification might be made on either a cluster of relatively common changes or a single unique finding.

Cholecystitis and Cholelithiasis

Cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder wall it may be either acute or chronic. It is almost always associated with cholelithiasis, or gallstones, which lodge in the gallbladder, cystic duct, or common bile duct. Silent gallstones are so common that most of the American public may have them at some time only stones that are symptomatic require treatment. In developed countries, the prevalence is 10 to 20 , and in the United States, approximately 20 million people have gallstones. Gallstones are most commonly made of either cholesterol or bilirubin and calcium. If gallstones obstruct the neck of the gallbladder or the cystic duct, the gallbladder can become infected with bacteria such as Escherichia coli. The primary agents, however, are not the bacteria but mediators such as members of the prostaglandin family. The gallbladder becomes enlarged up to two to three times normal, thus decreasing tissue perfusion. If the gallbladder becomes ischemic as well as infected,...

Medical Complications Of Alcoholism Gastrointestinal Tract and Pancreas

Alcohol consumption and gallstones are the two most common causes of acute pancreatitis. Alcohol in moderate amounts does not increase the risk for acute pancreatitis, but consumption of 35 or more drinks per week increases the odds ratio to 4.1 (Blomgren et al., 2002). Acute pancreatitis presents as a dull, steady epigastric pain that may radiate to the back. Bending or sitting may partially relieve the pain, confirming its retroperitoneal origin. Pain may be precipitated or aggravated by meals and relieved by vomiting. A serum amylase of 1.5 to 2.0 times the upper limit of normal has a sensitivity of 95 and a specificity of 98 for acute pancreatitis. Ethanol-induced acute pancreatitis is the result of the toxic effect of ethanol on pancreatic acinar cells, leading to inflammation and release of proteolytic enzymes. Chronic pancreatitis is caused most commonly by alcoholism. The common presenting symptoms are abdominal pain, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, jaundice, and diarrhea....

Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Slow and steady weight loss of no more than 2 pounds per week is the safest way to lose weight. Too rapid a weight loss can cause you to lose muscle mass rather than fat tissue and also can increase your chances of developing other health problems, such as gallstones, gout, and nutrient deficiencies. Making long-term improvements in your diet combined with exercising more is the best way to lose weight and keep it off.

Gallbladder and Biliary Duct Biliary System Cancer

The cause of biliary system cancer is unknown, although a possibility is gallstones. When gallstones are present, bile is released more slowly. If the bile contains carcinogens, the gallbladder tissue is exposed to these carcinogens for a longer period of time. Approximately 1 of all cholecystectomy specimens are found to be cancerous. Because of the risk of cancer, even for asymptomatic cholelithiasis, a cholecystectomy is recommended. Primary carcinoma of the gallbladder is rare and is usually associated with cholecystitis. Most biliary cancer is from metastasis, commonly from the head of the pancreas.

Primary Nursing Diagnosis

Medical management may include oral bile acid therapy. However, given the effectiveness of laparotic cholecystectomy, the only patients who will receive medical dissolution, except those nonobese patients with very small cholesterol gallstones and a functioning gallbladder. Nonsurgical method to dissolve gallstones Additional Pharmacologic Management The pain is treated by both analgesics and anticholinergics during acute attacks. The anticholinergics relax the smooth muscle, preventing biliary contraction and pain. If inflammation of the gallbladder has led to gallstones and obstruction of bile flow, replacement of the fat-soluble vitamins is important to supplement the diet. Bile salts may be prescribed to aid digestion and vitamin absorption, as well as to increase the ratio of bile salts to cholesterol, aiding in the dissolution of some stones.

Disorders of the Gallbladder the Pancreas and the Liver

Picture Composition Gallstones

Gallstones The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped sac beneath the liver where bile is stored and concentrated. Gallstones can form when an imbalance in its chemical composition causes the bile to harden into solid pieces. If the bile contains too much cholesterol, a tiny particle can gradually grow into a gallstone as more and more material hardens around it. Cholesterol stones are the most common type of gallstone. Another type of gallstone, a pigment stone, is small, dark, and made of bilirubin (the major pigment in bile). There may be one or more gallstones in various sizes, from the size of a grain of sand to the size of a golf ball. Gallstones Gallstones are solid lumps, consisting mostly of cholesterol, that form in the gallbladder. In some cases, a small gallstone passes on its own out of the gallbladder through the bile duct and out of the body in stool, causing no pain. But if a large stone blocks the cystic duct, which causes intense pain, both the duct and the gallbladder...

Seminars

US is the preferred imaging method for evaluating patients with acute right upper abdominal pain. It is a reliable technique for establishing the diagnosis of acute calculous cholecystitis. The primary criterion is the detection of gallstones. Secondary signs include the sonographic Murphy sign, gallbladder wall thickening by 3 mm or more, and pericholecystic fluid. Typically, a calculus obstructs the cystic duct in acute calculous cholecystitis. The trapped concentrated bile irritates the gallbladder wall, causing increased secretion, which in turn leads to distension and edema of the wall. Rising intraluminal pressure compresses the vessels, resulting in thrombosis, ischemia, and subsequent necrosis and perforation of the wall. Gallbladder perforation and complicating pericholecystic abscesses typically occur adjacent to the gallbladder fundus because of the sparse blood supply. CT may be useful for confirmation of the sonographic diagnosis. Emphysematous cholecystitis is a rare...

Cholesterol

Measure total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) every 5 years (unless abnormal), starting at age 20 (although this recommendation is not universally accepted). Start, earlier if the patient is obese or has a strong family history. Look for xanthelasma (know what it looks like), corneal arcus (in younger patients), lipemic-looking serum, and obesity as markers of possible familial, hypercholesterolemia. Family members should be tested. Also, look for pancreatitis with no risk factors (e.g., no alcohol, gallstones) as a marker for familial hypertriglyceridemia.

Ultrasonography

Real-time US is the method of choice for initial screening of patients with suspected disorders of the gallbladder and the intra- and extrahepatic bile ducts. The main advantages of US are its very high accuracy for the detection of gallbladder disease and dilatation of the intra-and extrahepatic bile ducts, easy availability, and low cost. However, US is an operator-dependent method, and artifacts due to bowel gas and obesity commonly result in insufficient visualization of the distal common bile duct. Therefore, US is not an appropriate test to rule out bile duct calculi. Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) can be combined with fiberoptic upper GI endoscopy. Although more costly than US and not entirely noninvasive, EUS is

Operation6286

The colon was markedly distended due to a hard mass impacted in the lower sigmoid colon. There was a seromuscular tear over this mass and inflammatory changes in the wall of the colon. There was a large inflammatory mass involving the hepatic flexure of the colon, gallbladder, liver, duodenum, and pancreas. Exploration revealed a thickened gallbladder containing a solitary large gallstone with 1 facet surface. There was a large perforation 3 cm in diameter between the gallbladder and the lumen of the colon (Figure 87.1). The stone and the distal half of the gallbladder were removed. Long-term suction drains were placed in its lumen. Abdominal colec-tomy and a high ileorectal anastomosis were performed, leaving 18 cm of rectum.
