AIM: to justify the role of biliary insufficiency (BI) in the development of disorders of bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with cholelithiasis and after cholecystectomy, to introduce with main methods of diagnosis, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and osteopenia in biliary pathology. Recent literature data showed that development of BI in the CL and PS leads to malabsorption of vitamin D and thereby contribute to the development of osteoporosis and osteopenia. The main method of diagnosis of BMD is twoenergic X-ray densitometry.
