Clinical Information
  • Any condition in which the release of bile from the liver is blocked. The blockage can occur in the liver (intrahepatic cholestasis) or in the bile ducts (extrahepatic cholestasis).
  • Impairment of bile flow due to obstruction in small bile ducts (intrahepatic cholestasis) or obstruction in large bile ducts (extrahepatic cholestasis).
  • Impairment of the bile flow caused by obstruction within the liver, or outside the liver in the bile duct system.
  • Intrahepatic impairment of bile flow; usually due to liver cell damage, but may be due to obstruction of intrahepatic bile ducts.
  • Stoppage or suppression of bile by intrahepatic or extrahepatic causes.
