Abstract:   (4933 Views)


Cholecystectomy is one of the most common operations in the field of general surgery. It

has higher cost in operations with complication and in these cases mortality and morbidity will increase. The

main goal of this research is the study and compare of cholesterol and triglyceride serum level in gallstone

group and control group.

Materials and Methods:

The role of Serum total cholesterol and triglyceride level in the etiology of

males and 22 females) with surgically or ultrasonographicaly confirmed cholecystolithiasis and 35 cases (16

as umbilical and inguinal Hernia) over age of forty. Mean age in stone group was 54 years and in control

group was 57 years.


mg/dl respectively were compared with control series with cholesterol and triglyceride levels 176 mg/dl and

121.8 mg/dl respectively (p=0.258 for cholesterol &p=0.368 for triglyceride).

Serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentration in gallstone patient was 193 mg/dl and 135.9


Gallstone patient had higher serum cholesterol and triglyceride level than control group but
