Characteristics of gallbladder inflammation
Gallbladder inflammation or cholecystitis is a condition in which this organ becomes inflamed causing much acute pain. This is one of the most common diseases that can affect the gallbladder together with gallstones.
Not properly treated, this digestive disease can affect the gallbladder health leading to a possible gallbladder rupture or a permanent gallbladder failure. Sometimes, gallbladder removal or cholecystectomy could be necessary. However, even in this case, digestive processes can also be carried without this organ.
Types of gallbladder inflammation
There are two types of gallbladder inflammation:
- Acute gallbladder inflammation: It appears suddenly increasing in pain as time passes
- Chronic inflammation: It takes place from time to time
Symptoms of gallbladder inflammation
The main important symptom of gallbladder inflammation is the acute constant pain in the inflamed area - the right upper quadrant of the human abdomen (RUQ)-, although another conditions such as hepatitis, or peptic ulcer could also produce pain in the same place.
Causes of gallbladder inflammation
Among all the possible causes we can point out:
- Gallstones : This is the most probable cause of gallbladder inflammation. Gallstones obstruct the cystic duct impeding bile flowing. Gallbladders could be the reason for more than 90 % of the cases of gallbladder inflammation.
- Prolonged fasting
- Prolonged intravenous feeding
