The Gallbladder is small sac-shaped organ beneath the liver, in which bile is stored after secretion by the liver and before release into the intestine which is also a storehouse for excess bile. During eating, the gallbladder contracts so as to expel bile into the intestine for digestion of fats. Bile is released from the gallbladder after eating. Bile travels through (cbd) common bile duct into the small intestine. Gall bladder stones are pieces of solid material that form in the gallbladder. These stones develop because cholesterol and pigments in bile sometimes form small solid particles.
