Does Helicobacter Pylori Identification in the Mucosa of the Gallbladder Correlate to Cholesterol Gallstone Formation?

Issue: 
Pages: 
428–32
Synopsis: 
Using both standard histology and polymerase chain reaction, H pylori was detectable in a low frequency in the mucosa of the gallbladder and no statistical differences were found between patients with cholesterol gallstones and patients without cholelithiasis. Thus, H pylori does not seem to act as a lithogenic component for cholesterol gallstone formation.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) represents a potential initiator of cholesterol crystallization and it has been proposed that it is related to gallstone formation. In this study, any possible association between the H pylori identification in the mucosa of gallbladder and cholesterol gallstone formation was evaluated.

Chronic Cholelithiasis with Gallstones Lodged in an Isolated Subserosal Intramural Gastric Pouch

Issue: 
Pages: 
85–6

                                                              INTRODUCTION

Gallstones presenting as cholecystoduodenal, cholecystocholedochal and cholecysto-gastric fistulae causing gastric outlet obstruction (Bouveret’s syndrome) or the classical gallstone ileus are well documented. Gallstones penetrating the gastric wall but not the gastric mucosa, and lying in an isolated subserosal, intramural portion of the stomach wall, have not been reported and therein lay the uniqueness of this
case.
