Paper Abstract

Pigment gallstone is much more prevalent in China than that in the western countries. According to clinical observations, there are three developmental steps: sludge, soft concretions, and, at last, consistent stones. In the animal model of guinea pigs, in which pigment gallstones were induced by partial ligation of the common bile duct (CBD), the similar course occurred. Amorphous sludge was found in animals sacrificed in one (2 animals) and three (3 animals) weeks after the CBD ligation; two soft concretions with spherical shape and 1 to 1.5 CM in diameter were found in an animal seven weeks after ligaton.
