Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Many etiological factors such as glad bladder motility disorders, chemical component of bile and chemical content of bile have been accepted on gallstone formation; but anatomic variations of bile duct has been never discussed before. The aim of this study was to assess whether the anatomical measurements of cystic canal length, common bile duct length, choledoc length and the angle between the cystic duct and common bile duct junction (sistocholedochal angle: SCA) affects the gallstone formation.
