By age 75, approximately 35% of women and 20% of men have developed gallstones. Although it is a common disease, most cases are asymptomatic and the patient remains unaware of its presence [2.1]. Symptomatic disease generally occurs as uncomplicated, infrequent biliary pain; episodes appear suddenly as severe, steady pain that is unaffected by household remedies, position change, or gas passage. If pain episodes do recur, the frequency may vary from weeks to years. Gallstone disease is not indicated by pain that is present uniformly, that frequently comes and goes, and that lasts less than 15 minutes. Belching, bloating, intolerance of fatty foods, and chronic pain are problems not attributable to gallstone disease. To the patient, however, the first episode of biliary pain can be upsetting if mistaken for a heart attack or abdominal catastrophe. Besides biliary colic, various complications are attributable to gallstone disease, including acute cholecystitis, acute pancreatitis, common duct obstruction, ascending cholangitis, gallbladder cancer, and gallstone ileus [2.2].
