Biliary colic

  1. 1. Biliary colic is a condition characterized by extreme cramping pain in the right upper abdomen. Gallstones in the gallbladder (small, pear-shaped sac under the liver that stores bile), or in the bile ducts (small tubes that drain bile from the liver into the gallbladder and small intestines) are the cause of the severe pain. About one third of patients with gallstones develop biliary colic or other complications. People who are overweight or have a high level of blood cholesterol increase their risk of developing gallstones and biliary colic. Pregnant women, or those on birth control pills or estrogen replacement therapy also have a greater risk of developing biliary colic. Other risk factors include rapid weight loss, diabetes, certain gastrointestinal conditions and certain medications. Biliary colic is caused by gallstones that form in the gallbladder or bile ducts. Gallstones form when bile, a substance made in the liver to help digest fats, contains too much cholesterol. A solid particle forms and becomes a gallstone.
