14 Mirizzi syndrome: a large stone in the neck of the gallbladder (arrow) is compressing the bile duct, causing intrahepatic duct dilatation. The lower end of the CBD remains normal in calibre. THE CONTRACTED OR SMALL GALLBLADDER Postprandial The most likely cause is physiological and due to inadequate preparation. The normal gallbladder wall is thickened when contracted, and this must not be confused with a pathological process. Always enquire what the patient has recently eaten or drunk (Fig.

11B). If the condition is not promptly diagnosed, recurring cholangitis leading to secondary biliary cirrhosis may result. On ultrasound the gallbladder may be either enlarged or contracted and contain debris. A stone impacted at the neck may be demonstrated together with dilatation of the intrahepatic ducts with a normal-calibre lower common duct (Fig. 14). The diagnosis, however, is difficult, and ERCP is generally the most successful modality. 13 (A) Postoperative bile collection in the gallbladder bed.
