Disorders of gallbladder, biliary tract and pancreas

  • Pancreatic pseudocyst
    A pancreatic pseudocyst is a circumscribed collection of fluid rich in pancreatic enzymes, blood, and necrotic tissue, typically located in the lesser sac of the abdomen.
  • Biliary dyskinesia
    Biliary dyskinesia is a disorder of some component of biliary part of the digestive system in which bile physically can not move normally in the proper direction through the tubular biliary tract.
  • Pancreatitis
    Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas.
  • Choledochal cysts
    Choledochal cysts (aka bile duct cyst) are congenital conditions involving cystic dilatation of bile ducts.
  • Ascending cholangitis
    Ascending cholangitis, also known as acute cholangitis or simply cholangitis, is an infection of the bile duct (cholangitis), usually caused by bacteria ascending from its junction with the duodenum (first part of the small intestine).
  • Biliary atresia
    Biliary atresia, also known as extrahepatic ductopenia, progressive obliterative cholangiopathy or "Kotb disease", is a childhood disease of the liver in which one or more bile ducts are abnormally narrow, blocked, or absent.
  • Cholecystitis
    Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gallbladder.
  • Chronic pancreatitis
    Chronic pancreatitis is a long-standing inflammation of the pancreas that alters the organ's normal structure and functions.
  • Acholia
    The acholia is the lack or absence of bile secretion.
  • Gallstone
    A gallstone is a stone formed within the gallbladder out of bile components.
  • Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction
    Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction refers to a group of functional disorders leading to abdominal pain due to dysfunction of the Sphincter of Oddi: functional biliary sphincter of Oddi and functional pancreatic sphincter of Oddi disorder.
  • Acute pancreatitis
    Acute pancreatitis or acute pancreatic necrosis is a sudden inflammation of the pancreas.
  • Cholestasis
    Cholestasis is a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver to the duodenum.
  • Biliary sludge
    Biliary sludge refers to a viscous mixture of small particles derived from bile.
  • Biliary pseudolithiasis
    Biliary pseudolithiasis refers to an unusual complication of ceftriaxone where the drug complexes with calcium and mimics gallstones.
