Aim: Our study aims to find various enzymatic and biochemical components of bile and their clinical or prognostic correlation with regard to progression and severity of hepatobiliary diseases. Materials and Methods: It was a cross-sectional study where all the patients suffering from choledochal cyst (CDC), extrahepatic portal venous obstruction (EHPVO), and infantile obstructive cholangiopathy undergoing diagnostic preoperative cholangiogram; and patients with history of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) undergoing surgery for some other condition were included in the study. Intraoperatively, bile was collected from the gallbladder and sent for estimation of amylase, lipase, sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, bicarbonate, total bilirubin, pH, cholesterol, triglycerides, and total bile acid. Results: A total of 80 patients were included in the study (20 in each of the four disease-based groups). Amylase, lipase, and pH were significantly different among the patients of CDC when compared with the presence or absence of dilated intrahepatic biliary radicals. Similarly, amylase, lipase, and pH were also significantly different among the patients of EHPVO when compared with presence or absence of biliopathy. Levels of cholesterol and bile acid were significantly higher in patients who were evaluated after 1 year following TPN than those who were evaluated before 1 year. The patients of infantile cholangiopathy, who had history of fever, had significantly higher level of calcium. Conclusion: The components of bile show close correlation with various clinical and prognostic markers, there is a very close correlation between these parameters and the clinical severity, disease progression, and final outcome.
