          Abstract

          Rapid weight loss increases risk for gallstone formation. Prophylactic cholecystectomy is difficult. Several small trials have shown that ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) may prevent gallstone formation after bariatric surgery. The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of UDCA in the prevention of gallstone formation after bariatric surgery.
