What is it about?

This study aimed to classify gallstones based on their morphology and composition. We used UV-vis, SEM and EDS to study the composition. The findings revealed that cholesterol and bilirubin are the primary components, while metals like aluminum, calcium, and copper play a crucial role in their formation.

Why is it important?

Understanding the chemical composition and mechanisms of gallstone formation can assist healthcare practitioners in deciding whether therapeutic or surgical interventions are more appropriate for treating gallstone patients.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations.
