Diagnostic Significance of Laboratory Tests in Diseases of the Biliary System

Abstract


The study of international and domestic experience to evaluate the effectiveness of hematological studies in cholelithiasis and to determine the required amount of laboratory tests in asymptomatic cholelithiasis, biliary colic, and those complications of cholelithiasis that occur most often: acute cholecystitis, choledocholithiasis, cholangitis, biliary pancreatitis.
Diagnosis is established by imaging techniques: ultrasonography, scintigraphy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, retrograde cholecystocholangiopancreatography and in some severe cases intraoperatively.
Laboratory diagnosis, which is an integral part of modern medicine, does not lose its significance for the management of patients with cholelithiasis. Hematological studies are used to establish the diagnosis, etiology, risk stratification for severeclinical course, organ failure detection, determination of the adequacy of therapy. Changes in laboratory parameters make it possible to suspecttimely the development of complications and monitoring of the patient’s state. Laboratory tests are usually more sensitive indicators of the patient’s state than his well-being. A set of clinical manifestations, laboratory data and imaging techniques improve the results of cholelithiasis diagnosis.
