K82.3: Fistula of gallbladder

A duct has formed between your gallbladder and another organ.

The gallbladder is in the top right part of the abdomen below the liver. The liver produces bile. The bile flows through bile ducts to the gallbladder and is stored there. When needed, the bile flows through another bile duct to the intestine. There, the bile helps to digest fats.

There is a duct between the gallbladder and another organ in your abdomen. That may for instance be a duct between the gallbladder and stomach or between the gallbladder and skin. Such a duct can develop when the wall of the gallbladder ruptures. If this rupture has made contact with another organ, a connection between these organs may develop.
