Quantitative Analysis in (33) Traces Metals in Human Gallstones by ICP-AES

Lazeeza Sattar Omer


Inductively Coupled Plasma- Atomic Emission Spectroscopy(ICP-AES) was used to analyze human gallstones in Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ga, K, La, Mg, Mn, Mo, Hg, Na, Ni, P, Pb, Sb, Sc, Sr, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, and Zn).Thirty gallstones were collected during surgery from patients with cholesterol, pigment and mixed stones. The results of quantitative elemental analysis revealed that, out of 34 elements, 18 elements Ba, Be, Bi, B, Cd, Co, Ga, La, Mn, Mo, Ni, Sc, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, and W were not observed in any of the stones. While the concentration of other elements were in the following order>Ca>Cu>Mn>Sr>Zn>Na>Mg>Pb>Fe ? A l? K ?Hg>Sb>As ? Ag ? Cr. Trace metal concentration in patients from Erbil governorate gallstone were compare with that obtained from patients from other countries.
