AbstractGallstones are estimated to affect over 20 million people in the United States. Recent studies have clarified the role of various dietary components in gallstone disease. Also, insulin resistance has been demonstrated to be a risk factor for gallstones. Other research has focused on the pathophysiology of gallstones and on clarifying the underlying mechanisms of previously noted risk factors for gallstones. New techniques for the noninvasive diagnosis of bile duct stones continue to be developed and tested. These techniques include computed tomography and magnetic resonance cholangiography. The impact and appropriateness of laparoscopic cholecystectomy continue to debated, and studies point to both overuse and underuse of this operation in the management of the disease. © 2001 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
