Currently, the bacteriocholism is increasingly mentioned among the etiological factors of the development of the biliary tract pathology, as well as postoperative complications during interventions on the organs of the hepatobiliary system. The frequency of aerobic bacteriocholism in acute cholecystitis is 50-98%, in chronic cholecystitis – 22-60%, in choledocholithiasis – 58-95%, in mechanical jaundice – 95%. In our investigation it was found that, regardless of the nature of the biliary tract lesion, enterococci were the dominant biliary cultures. Bacteriocholism is considered as a risk factor for the development of postoperative infectious complications. Thus, the role of bacteriocholism is currently beyond doubt as one of the significant factors of pathology of the biliary tract.
