Frequency of Gall Bladder Carcinoma among Patients of Cholelithiasis at Tertiary Care Hospital
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Objective: To determine the frequency of carcinoma of Gall Bladder in Hospitalized patients undergoing surgeries for cholelithiasis at tertiary care Hospital.
Study Setting: General surgery department of Muhammad Medical College Mirpurkhas.
Study Design: Descriptive.
Study Duration: From 2018 to 2019.
Methodology: All the patients of cholelithiasis diagnosed via trans-abdominal ultrasound, those who underwent cholecystectomies and either of gender were included. After surgeries, specimens immediately were sent to the Hospital diagnostic laboratory to evaluate the gall bladder carcinoma. The information obtained was noted on a pre-designed proforma.
Results: A total 200 patient of gall bladder stone disease were observed who underwent cholecystectomies. Average age was 53.8+5.62 years and male to female ratio was 1:2.5. Incidence of carcinoma of gall bladder was 4%, which was significantly associated to gall bladder mass, chronic calculus cholecystitis and porcelain gall bladder (p=0.001).
Conclusion: The incidence of the gall bladder cancer in the study population was 4% and its relationship with gall bladder diseases (chronic cholecystitis and porcelain) was found to be significant.
