What is Gallbladder Volvulus?

Description of the condition

Gallbladder volvulus is a condition in which the gallbladder becomes twisted or bent, which can lead to disruption of the bile flow.


Gallbladder volvulus can be classified as acute or chronic, depending on the duration and severity of the symptoms.


  • Pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Belching
  • Changes in the color of stool and urine


Gallbladder volvulus can be caused by prolonged sitting in an uncomfortable position, developmental anomalies of the gallbladder or its surrounding tissues.


Ultrasound, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance cholangiography may be used to diagnose gallbladder volvulus.


Treatment of gallbladder volvulus may include conservative methods, such as taking medication to relieve symptoms, or surgical intervention to correct the volvulus.


Preventing gallbladder volvulus involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and physical activity.


If gallbladder volvulus is suspected, it is important to consult a gastroenterologist or surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
