CASTELLANOS CARMENATE, Teresa et al. Pathological findings in patients with biliary dysfunction. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.4, pp. 469-474. ISSN 1029-3019.
A descriptive, cross-sectional, and retrospective study with 84 patients assisted at Gastroenterology Service from ¨Dr Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso¨ General Teaching Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out from January, 2010 to January, 2011. These patients underwent a colecistectomy for having clinical manifestations of biliary dysfunction. After removing the gallbladder, patients having abdominal pain and diarrhea, among other symptoms and signs, attended the outpatient department related to this speciality. Searching for precise data, the pre-surgical diagnosis was compared to the pathological findings, in which case it was concluded that, in spite of many cases did not match, this fact did not hinder the obtaining of satisfactory results in the case material.
