Biliary Diseases


Biliary diseases affect the bile ducts and gallbladder. Bile drains from the liver through a number of bile ducts into the small intestine, and then back to the bile ducts and liver. If a bile duct becomes diseased or blocked, medical problems can occur including gallstones, Cholecystitis, Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), and Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC). Biliary duct cancer, or Cholangiocarcinoma, can also occur.
