Are gallbladder attacks fatal?
Rupture of the gallbladder is a medical condition in which the gallbladder begins to leak or bursts. Ruptures are most commonly caused by an inflammation of the gallbladder. The most common causes are gall stones, which get stuck inside the gallbladder. Untreated, a ruptured gallbladder can result in an infection in the bloodstream (septicemia). Such an infection can be fatal.
