Gallstones are a major cause of morbidity worldwide. In the United States, over 10% of the total population has gallstones. Each year 1,000,000 new patients are diagnosed. Performance of 500,000 cholecystectomies (gallbladder removal) leads to an annual expense of more than $5 billion in direct costs.
Gallstones are made mainly of cholesterol, bilirubin, and calcium salts, with smaller amounts of protein and other materials. In Western countries, essentially all gallstones, whether cholesterol or pigmented, arise in the gallbladder. In Asia, a significant fraction of pigmented stones originate in the bile ducts. In Western countries, cholesterol is the principal constituent of more than three-quarters of gallstones.
