Gallstone pancreatitis. Definition

Medical Definition: gallstone pancreatitis

Acute pancreatitis caused by the passage of a gallstone, usually migrated from the gallbladder through the intrapancreatic bile duct. Charge calculations are usually small and more than 90% have been expelled into the duodenum when the patient involved, so it is rarely necessary to open the bile duct to remove a choledocholithiasis. Surgical treatment of gallstone pancreatitis is cholecystectomy with cholangiography. View cholecystectomy, choledocholithiasis, cholelithiasis.
