Market Dynamics

Gallstones are stones or lumps that develop in the gallbladder or bile duct. Approximately 20 million Americans are living with gallstones. The most common cause of acute pancreatitis is stones in the gallbladder. To enter the small intestine, gallbladder stones pass through the common bile duct. At the entry of the small intestine, the pancreas joins to the common bile duct. The gallstones that get stuck in the common bile duct impinge on the main pancreatic duct and obstructs the normal flow of pancreatic fluids, leading to pancreatic injury. Another way that a stone can cause pancreatitis is through the backflow of bile into the pancreatic duct that could result in a pancreatic lesion. The rising cases of gallstones are directly influencing the growth of the market.
