Abstract

OBJECTIVES: In this case-control study, we sought to determine whether the incidence of gallbladder stones (GBS) was increased in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients on a hemodialysis (HD) program. We also evaluated factors, Such as lipid profiles and gallbladder motility, that could affect the formation of GBS. In addition, we reviewed other available studies on this subject and compared the factors that might have some influence on the development of GBS.
