Health Tips
Rupture of Gallbladder (contd.)
Causes of gallbladder inflammation leading to rupture include gall stones (most comon cause for inflammation), diabetes or immune compromised patients, oscariasis (parasitic worms), bacterial infection (billary sludge-mixture of bile and particle matter, which clogs the gall bladder lumen), causes of blunt injury to the gall bladder, motor vehicle accidents, falls in sports, direct blows in sports (soccer, wrestling, rugby, etc.).  symptoms of gallbladder rupture may include, nausea, pain in upper right quandrant of body, jaundice (yellowing of the skin caused by pressure and swelling around the gall bladder) fever.

Outlook is best when the gallbladder is removed before it can rupture.  After the rupture the best option is a lfe saving surgery which involves removing the gall bladder and performing a thorough abdominal lavoge.
