Author(s): Dr. Rakesh Kumar, Dr. Dhiraj Prakash and Dr. Yogesh Kumar Yadav
Abstract: Background: There are very little studies in the area of post-surgical complications of cholecystectomy. It was reported that the patients who had underwent the gall bladder removal surgery develops some dysfunction in the liver profile.
Objectives: The present study was undertaken to study the bilirubin profile in the patients of cholecystectomy.
Methods: The present study involved 30 patients of gastro intestinal surgery, within the age group of 20 to 60 years of age. Both the genders (males =15), Females =15) were included in the study. Thorough clinical evaluation was conducted to all the patients. Direct and total bilirubin levels were estimated using the standard methods in the literature.
Results: The two-tailed P value is less than 0.0001 for total bilirubin. By conventional criteria, this difference is considered to be extremely statistically significant. The mean of Group One minus Group Two equals 0.171000. 95% confidence interval of this difference: From 0.146150 to 0.195850. The two-tailed P value is less than 0.0001 for direct bilirubin. By conventional criteria, this difference is considered to be extremely statistically significant. The mean of Group One minus Group Two equals -0.129000. 95% confidence interval of this difference: From -0.144995 to -0.113005.
Conclusion: There was decrease in the total bilirubin levels but there was increase in the direct bilirubin levels in the patients. This study results support the views of earlier research. The study also recommends detailed research in this area.
