CBD Stones & Stricture

CBD stands for common bile duct, which is a tube that carries bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine. CBD stones are small, hard deposits that form in the CBD, often as a result of gallstones migrating from the gallbladder. They can cause abdominal pain, jaundice, and pancreatitis. CBD strictures are narrowing of the CBD that can be caused by inflammation, scarring, or tumours. They can lead to bile duct obstruction, jaundice, and infection. Some of the factors that caused CBD abnormalities are genetics, weight, and certain medical issues. ARS Gastro and liver centre is at the forefront of providing cutting-edge treatment solutions for patients suffering from a variety of liver and gastrointestinal diseases. Depending on the severity of the illness, treatment options may include medicines, endoscopic removal, or surgery.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of CBD stones and strictures can vary from person to person but they include:
  • Abdominal pain, especially in the upper right part of the abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and eyes
  • Itching
  • Dark urine and light-coloured stools
  • Fever and chills
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss

Treatments:

Cannabis stone remedies might differ depending on the severity of the disease. Among the most prevalent therapies are:
  • Ursodeoxycholic acid and other stone-dissolving medications
  • A cholecystectomy is a surgery to remove the gallbladder and stones.
  • Percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy (PTCS), is a technique in which a needle is inserted through the skin and liver to enter the bile duct and remove the stones.
  • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), is a noninvasive therapy that breaks up stones so they can flow through the bile duct.
