BACKGROUND: Congenital Hyperinsulinism (HI) causes severe hypoglycemia in neonates and children. We reviewed our experience with pancreatectomy for the various types of HI. METHODS: From 1998 to 2018, 500 patients with HI underwent pancreatectomy: 246 for focal HI, 202 for diffuse HI, 37 for atypical HI (16 for Localized Islet Nuclear Enlargement [LINE], 21 for Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome), and 15 for insulinoma. Focal HI neonates were treated with partial pancreatectomy...

BACKGROUND: The advent of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) and single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS), surgery without skin scarring, is now challenging every surgeon to improve the esthetic results for patients. Minilaparoscopic cholecystectomy (MLC) represents a refinement in laparoscopic surgery, potentially as cosmetically effective as NOTES. Nevertheless, because of the increased cost and difficulty in managing the equipment, it has not been widely accepted among surgeons...

INTRODUCTION: Acute pancreatitis (AP) is an emerging problem in pediatrics, with most cases resolving spontaneously. Approximately 10% to 30%, however, are believed to develop "severe acute pancreatitis" (SAP). METHODS: This consensus statement on the classification of AP in pediatrics was developed through a working group that performed an evidence-based search for classification of AP in adult pancreatitis, definitions and criteria of systemic inflammatory response syndrome, and organ failure in pediatrics...

INTRODUCTION: Choledochal malformations (CMs) are increasingly diagnosed antenatally. There is a dilemma between early surgery to prevent CM-related symptoms and postponing surgery to reduce complications. We aimed to identify the optimal timing of surgery in asymptomatic neonates with antenatally diagnosed CM and to identify predictors for development of symptoms. METHODS: Using the Netherlands Study group on CHoledochal Cyst/malformation (NeSCHoc) we retrospectively collected demographic, biochemical and surgical data from all Dutch patients with an antenatally detected CM...

OBJECTIVES: Most infants with biliary atresia (BA) require liver transplantation (LT) after hepatoportoenterostomy (HPE), including those who initially clear jaundice. The aim of the present study was to identify clinical and routine laboratory factors in infants with BA post-HPE that predict native liver survival at 2 years. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in 217 patients with BA undergoing HPE in Sydney, Australia and Toronto, Canada between January 1986 and July 2009...

BACKGROUND: Common duct stones can be diagnosed by magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)/ERCP, and intraoperative cholangiogram (IOC). In 2015, our group adopted a standard approach of preoperative EUS/ERCP followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy for patients with an admission bilirubin >4.0 mg/dL. For bilirubin <4.0 mg/dL, laparoscopic cholecystectomy with IOC was the initial procedure. Postoperative EUS/ERCP with endoscopic sphincterotomy was pursued for positive IOC...

Cholelithiasis is one of the commonest diseases in gastroenterology. Remarkable improvements in therapeutic modalities for cholelithiasis and its complications are evident. The Japanese Society of Gastroenterology has revised the evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for cholelithiasis. Forty-three clinical questions, for four categories-epidemiology and pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatments, and prognosis and complications-were selected, and a literature search was performed for the clinical questions with use of the MEDLINE, Cochrane, and Igaku Chuo Zasshi databases for the period between 1983 and June 2012...

BACKGROUND: Biliary atresia is an idiopathic, neonatal liver disease of the bile ducts. The natural evolution of biliary atresia is known in developed countries. This study describes the clinical course of biliary atresia in Vietnam, a developing country. METHODS: Chart reviews were undertaken of patients treated with or without the Kasai procedure between January 2010 and July 2013 at a children's hospital in Vietnam. RESULTS: Of 287 children with biliary atresia, 149 (52%) were treated without the Kasai procedure and 138 (48%) were treated with the Kasai procedure...

PURPOSE: We aimed to study whether saturation in HSV color model could be a parameter for acholic stool and utilized for designing a mobile application for screening biliary atresia (BA). METHODS: Saturations of the colors in the three validated stool color cards (Taiwan, Japan, Britain) were read using PHOTOSHOP. Stools from 40 BA patients and 40 in-hospital neonates with pneumonia were photographed and analyzed with color-analyzing mobile applications. RESULTS: Saturations of normal colors in the published stool cards were all >50% (67%~99%, median 85%) and were all <50% (7~47%, median 25%) for abnormal colors...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical outcome of patients treated with the current technique of Kasai procedure compared with that of those treated with previous procedures. METHODS: We retrospectively assessed the outcomes of 256 patients with biliary atresia who underwent Kasai portoenterostomy at our hospital between 1972 and 2014. Patients were divided into four groups: group 1 (1972-1981, double Roux-en Y, n=91), group 2 (1982-1991, Suruga II, n=80), group 3 (1992-2000, double-valve Roux-en Y, n=46), and group 4 (2001-2014, total removal of the extrahepatic biliary remnants at hepatic capsule and Roux-en Y reconstruction with a spur valve, n=39)...

INTRODUCTION: Infants with biliary atresia (BA) develop a degree of hepatic fibrosis as a consequence of their cholangiopathy. Some of them present clinically evident ascites that might predispose to inguinal hernias. We aimed to investigate whether infants with BA have a higher incidence of inguinal hernias. METHODS: Single-center retrospective review of all BA infants diagnosed between January 2006 and December 2010. Infants with a clinical diagnosis of inguinal hernia were identified and compared with those without...

Importance: There are currently 2 widely accepted treatment strategies for patients presenting to the hospital with choledocholithiasis. However, the rate of use for each strategy in the United States has not been evaluated, and their trends over time have not been described. Furthermore, an optimal management strategy for choledocholithiasis has yet to be defined. Objective: To evaluate secular trends in the management of choledocholithiasis in the United States and to compare hospital length of stay between patients with choledocholithiasis treated with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ERCP+LC) vs laparoscopic common bile duct exploration with laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LCBDE+LC)...

A 21-year-old female underwent a Kasai hepatoportoenterostomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction for typeIII biliary atresia at age 63 days. At the age of 19 years, she developed cholangitis and CT scan revealed hepatolithiasis. She presented for treatment of the intrahepatic stone and the hepatportoenterostomy was directly visualized with double-balloon endoscopy (DBE). Endoscopic findings showed multiple intrahepatic bile ducts open to the jejunum through multiple orifices. Cholangiography showed narrowing of intrahepatic bile duct branches with a "fire-like" appearance...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study is to evaluate the outcome of laparoscopic Kasai portoenterostomy for type III biliary atresia in children. METHODS: A total of 95 type III biliary atresia patients were treated at the Capital Institute of Pediatrics between September 2009 and August 2011. The patients were randomized into 2 groups preoperatively: the laparoscopic group (LP group, n=48) and the open group (OP group, n=47). In the LP group, 4 patients were converted to open operations, whereas the remaining 44 patients in the LP group and 47 patients in the OP group were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Biliary atresia (BA) is a serious liver disease with uncertain prognosis. The objective of this study was to investigate prognostic values of the >20 % decrease in serum total bilirubin (TB) at 7th day post-op regarding early outcome and 5-year survival with native liver in BA. METHODS: Biliary atresia patients undergoing Kasai operation between 2000 and 2014 were reviewed. The ratio of serum TB at 7th day post-op to pre-op TB levels (TB7/TB0) was calculated for every patient...

Cholecystectomy rates for biliary dyskinesia in children are rising in the United States, but not in other countries. Biliary dyskinesia is a validated functional gallbladder disorder in adults, requiring biliary colic in the diagnosis. In contrast, most studies in children require upper abdominal pain, absent gallstones on ultrasound, and an abnormal gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) on cholecystokinin-stimulated cholescintigraphy for diagnosis. We aimed to systematically review existing literature in biliary dyskinesia in children, determine the validity and reliability of diagnostic criteria, GBEF, and to assess outcomes following cholecystectomy...

PURPOSE: Long-term survivors of biliary atresia (BA) sometimes experience liver dysfunction. We evaluated the prognostic factors for long-term native liver survival (NLS) in BA patients after the Kasai procedure. METHODS: This study included 67 patients with jaundice disappearance after the Kasai procedure performed between 1972 and 1995, and NLS for over 10 years. We retrospectively evaluated the clinical parameters, including the type of BA, age at the Kasai procedure, medical conditions, and treatments...

Cholestatic jaundice in infancy affects approximately 1 in every 2500 term infants and is infrequently recognized by primary providers in the setting of physiologic jaundice. Cholestatic jaundice is always pathologic and indicates hepatobiliary dysfunction. Early detection by the primary care physician and timely referrals to the pediatric gastroenterologist/hepatologist are important contributors to optimal treatment and prognosis. The most common causes of cholestatic jaundice in the first months of life are biliary atresia (25%-40%) followed by an expanding list of monogenic disorders (25%), along with many unknown or multifactorial (eg, parenteral nutrition-related) causes, each of which may have time-sensitive and distinct treatment plans...
