Resumen

JARUFE C, Nicolás et al. An update on hepatolithiasis. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2013, vol.65, n.4, pp.360-363. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262013000400014.

Hepatolithiasis or intrahepatic lithiasis is defined as the presence of stones in the biliary ducts proximal to the biliary confluence. The pathogenesis can be primary or secondary, according to the anatomical site were stones are formed. The physiopathologies of primary and secondary hepatolithiasis differ. We have recently reported the results of hepatectomy for the treatment of hepatolithiasis. We have found a significant association between the history of cholecystectomy and the presence of stones in the posterior segments of the right liver lobe. We have also observed a weak association between hepatolithiasis and congenital cystic diseases of the intrahepatic bile ducts (Caroli disease). We herein review concepts and definitions of hepatolithiasis.

Palabras clave : Hepatolithiasis; bile duct; cholecystectomy.
