CBD Stone & CBD Obstruction

CBD Stone (Common Bile Duct Stone) A CBD stone refers to a gallstone that has moved from the gallbladder and becomes lodged in the common bile duct (CBD). Gallstones are solid particles that form in the gallbladder due to the crystallization of cholesterol or bile pigments. When these stones migrate from the gallbladder into the common bile duct, they can cause various complications, including CBD obstruction.

The obstruction occurs when the flow of bile from the liver to the small intestine is blocked or hindered. This blockage can be caused by various factors, with one common cause being the presence of a CBD stone. Other causes of CBD obstruction may include tumors, inflammation, strictures, or other abnormalities in the bile duct.

Symptoms of CBD obstruction can include severe abdominal pain, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), dark urine, pale stools, nausea, and vomiting.

It is a serious medical condition that requires prompt evaluation and treatment. In some cases, medications can be prescribed to dissolve certain types of gallstones, but they may not be effective for all stones.

If you suspect symptoms of CBD stone or CBD obstruction, it is essential to seek medical attention promptly to determine the cause and receive appropriate treatment. Always consult a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and management of any medical condition.
