Cholesterol crystallization is an essential step toward gallstone formation. Although model bile studies showed that competition occurs between the gallstone surface and the surrounding aqueous phase for cholesterol molecules available for crystallization, this has not been investigated in human bile.

Abstract

Cholesterol crystallization is an essential step toward gallstone formation. Although model bile studies showed that competition occurs between the gallstone surface and the surrounding aqueous phase for cholesterol molecules available for crystallization, this has not been investigated in human bile.
