Common Bile Duct Exploration Or Choledocoscopy OR Gallbladder OR Pancreatitis

T Herta, U Beuers
BACKGROUND: Immune-mediated cholangiopathies comprise primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and IgG4-associated cholangitis (IAC). A common feature is the progressive destruction of bile ducts leading to cholestasis with fibrosis and cirrhosis of the liver over time. The diseases are mostly identified during routine laboratory testing. Clinical signs and symptoms such as pruritus, fatigue or jaundice are infrequent in the early stage. DIAGNOSIS: The diagnostic work-up involves the patient's history, physical examination, serological tests, abdominal ultrasonography, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and, where necessary, liver biopsy and genetic testing...

Injuries occurring during laparoscopic bile duct exploration in the course of laparoscopic cholecystectomy may represent threatening complications and lead to inappropriate management. We present a case of patient with biliary colic who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy. During the procedure, a common bile duct injury occurred, compelling conversion to open approach, and the patient was treated using a manually inserted biliary stent. She was referred with severe right upper quadrant pain six weeks after the surgery...

The oncologic safety and feasibility of laparoscopic radical cholecystectomy for a preoperatively suspected gallbladder cancer is continually being challenged even in an era of minimally invasive surgery. A seventy-four-year-old woman was presented in the outpatient department with a history of fever, abdominal pain, and vomiting. CT scan showed an irregular wall thickening of the body to the cystic duct of the gallbladder and portocaval lymph node. In addition, EUS revealed no subserosal invasion of the tumor...

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the treatment of choice in patients with choledocholithiasis. However,despite its high success rate, in some cases it is not successful, requiring alternative therapy. Billroth II partial gastrectomy is a condition associated with an important failure rate of ERCP. When endoscopic treatment fails, surgical exploration of the bile duct is the most common approach. However, the surgery is related to a greater complexity of execution and morbimortality. We describe the case of a patient with choledocholithiasis and Billroth II partial gastrectomy, submitted to the combined treatment called rendez-vous laparoendoscopic, after failure of ERCP, which unites in a single stage the endoscopic treatment of choledocholithiasis and laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder...

CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: In daily routine, every radiologist is confronted with a variety of questions concerning the biliary tract and pancreatic system. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Today, besides sonography, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is considered the method of choice in the investigation of many disorders of the hepatobiliary and pancreatic system and is commonly preferred over invasive ERCP in a mere diagnostic setting. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: Since its introduction in 1991, MRCP has constantly evolved...

BACKGROUND: Cholecystoduodenostomy is a surgical procedure that bypasses the extrahepatic biliary tree and connects the gallbladder directly to the duodenum. This case describes the successful use of this procedure in a novel situation. CASE PRESENTATION: A premature (34 weeks gestation) female infant with cystic fibrosis required a laparotomy on day 1 of life due to an intrauterine small bowel perforation. Resection of small bowel and ileostomy formation resulted in short gut syndrome, with 82 cm residual small bowel and intact ileocaecal valve...

Consensus guidelines recommend patients with symptomatic cholelithiasis and suspected choledocholithiasis have common bile duct exploration (CBDE) at the time of cholecystectomy to prevent downstream problems. Despite superiority of single-stage cholecystectomy with CBDE, 2-stage precholecystectomy/postcholecystectomy with endoscopic clearance of the duct is commonly practiced. This is related to inadequate training in minimally invasive techniques, lack of technical support for efficient and safe CBDE, and surgeons' inexperience with complex biliary pathologic condition...

Acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) is a potentially life-threatening disease that is induced by the common bile duct (CBD) sludge or stones. This study aimed to investigate protective effects of Qingyi Decoction (QYT) on deoxycholic-acid-sodium salt (DCA) induced ABP in rats. Gpbar1 is a G-protein coupled receptor that can be activated by DCA. Both Gpbar1 overexpression vector and Gpbar1 RNAi were constructed and transfected into ABP cell models. Functional assays reveal that DCA significantly induced AR42J apoptosis and triggered Gpbar1 expression...

The authors analyze what should be the best approach to treat patients who had concomitant gallstones and common bile duct stones (CBDS). Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) appears to be an atractive way to cure all kind of biliary stones in a single procedure. However, when scientific literature is reviewed most patients continue to need from ERCP for CBDS removal. ERCP can be performed before, after or during the same LC procedure. Patients with LCBDE had less pancreatitis rate because the Papilla of Vater is not manipulated but more bile leaks...
