Gall bladder disorders
The gallbladder is a small pear-shaped sac located underneath your
liver. Your gallbladder’s main function is to store the bile produced by
your liver and pass it along through a duct that empties into the small
intestine. Bile helps you digest fats in your small intestine.
Inflammation causes the majority of gallbladder diseases due to irritation of the gallbladder walls, which is known as cholecystitis. This inflammation is often due to gallstones blocking the ducts leading to the small intestine and causing bile to build up. It may eventually lead to necrosis (tissue destruction) or gangrene.
