Information About Cholestasis

Cholestasis is a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver to the duodenum. The two basic distinctions are an obstructive type of cholestasis, where there is a mechanical blockage in the duct system such as can occur from a gallstone or malignancy, and metabolic types of cholestasis, which are disturbances in bile formation that can occur because of genetic defects or acquired as a side effect of many medications.
