Abstract
Background
Gallbladder polyps are now increasingly detected by ultrasonography. There are many studies reporting the prevalence of gallbladder polyp, however there is no report in Jeju island. The purpose of this study is to research prevalence and clinical characteristics of gallbladder polyps in adults living in Jeju island.
Methods
We have evaluated 3,471 populations who underwent abdominal ultrasonography for health screening examination at Jeju National University Hospital in Jeju, Korea from January 2011 to June 2012.
Results
Prevalence of gallbladder polyp in Jeju island is 10.1%. Prevalence in males is 11.6% and that in females is 8.2%(P<0.001). The size of gallbladder polyps mostly are less than 5mm in diameter. 216 subjects (61.5%) have single polyp and 135(38.5%) subjects have multiple gallbladder polyps which means 2 or more polyps.
Conclusions
The prevalence of gallbladder polyp in Jeju island has found to be higher than the pre-existing reports and the prevalence is higher in males than females. Most polyps are small and single.
Key Words: Gallbladder polyp, Prevalence, Ultrasonography
