Condition

Cholecystitis

Description

Cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder, which occurs most commonly due to obstruction of the cystic duct with gallstones (cholelithiasis). Blockage of the cystic duct with gallstones causes accumulation of bile in the gallbladder and increased pressure within the gallbladder. Concentrated bile, pressure, and sometimes bacterial infection irritate and damage the gallbladder wall, causing inflammation and swelling of the gallbladder, which can reduce normal blood flow to areas of the gallbladder and lead to cell death due to insufficient oxygen. Source: Wikipedia
