Cholestasis has been classically characterized by features unrelated or indirectly related to the processes of bile flow. Recent advances in the physiology of bile production may eventually allow definition of different forms of cholestasis in terms of their alteration of the specific processes involved in bile formation, particularly in their effect on the components of bile flow.
