síndrome pós-colecistectomia -> σύνδρομο μετά χολοκυστεκτομή, σύνδρομο μετά από χολοκυστεκτομή

Postcholecystectomy syndrome (PCS) describes the presence of abdominal symptoms two years after a cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal).

Symptoms occur in about 5 to 40 percent of patients who undergo cholecystectomy, and can be transient, persistent or lifelong. The chronic condition is diagnosed in approximately 10% of postcholecystectomy cases.

The pain associated with postcholecystectomy syndrome is usually ascribed to either sphincter of Oddi dysfunction or to post-surgical adhesions. A recent 2008 study shows that postcholecystectomy syndrome can be caused by biliary microlithiasis. Approximately 50% of cases are due to biliary causes such as remaining stone, biliary injury, dysmotility and choledococyst. The remaining 50% are due to non-biliary causes. This is because upper abdominal pain and gallstones are both common but are not always related.

Non-biliary causes of PCS may be caused by a functional gastrointestinal disorder, such as functional dyspepsia.

Chronic diarrhea in postcholecystectomy syndrome is a type of bile acid diarrhea (type 3). This can be treated with a bile acid sequestrant like cholestyramine, colestipol or colesevelam, which may be better tolerated.
