Efficacy of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in acalculous gallbladder disease: long-term follow-up. (1/30)

OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to determine the efficacy of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in symptomatic patients with ultrasound negative and abnormal gallbladder ejection fractions; Patients with gallbladder ejection fractions less than 35% on hepatobiliary scan were offered laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS: Between January 1995 and January 2001, 1564 patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy at our institution: 256 were confirmed to have acalculous gallbladder disease by pathology report and reconfirmation of abnormal hepatobiliary scan data. A 30-day postoperative follow-up was obtained by retrospective medical record review. For this study, we contacted all 256 patients by mail questionnaire and followed up on nonresponders with telephone interviews; we also reviewed hospital records to verify preoperative symptom patterns. The survey was completed by 154 patients (60%): 48 (31%) by mail and 106 (69%) by telephone interviews. The study included 115 (75%) female and 39 (25%) male patients, and the average age was 42 years (range, 13 to 95). All hepatobiliary laboratory parameters were normal pre- and postoperatively. The survey was completed in December 2001, 1 to 5 years postoperatively (mean 3 years). RESULTS: Preoperatively, 142 patients (92%) had right upper quadrant pain, 114 (74%) had nausea, 88 (57%) had vomiting, 120 (73%) had heartburn, and 118 (77%) had food intolerance. In a 30-day postoperative period, these numbers had reduced to 48 (37%), 14 (90%), 8 (5%), 22 (14%), and 34 (22%), respectively. had laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and 95% stated that they would recommend laparoscopic cholecystectomy to other patients. CONCLUSION: This study shows that patients with acalculous gallbladder disease benefit from laparoscopic cholecystectomy.  (+info)

Constancy and variability of gallbladder ejection fraction: impact on diagnosis and therapy. (2/30)

The main objective of this study was to test the constancy and variability of gallbladder (GB) ejection fraction (EF) in long-term studies to (a) determine whether EF ever becomes normal once it is low, (b) determine how long it takes for the EF to become abnormal once it is found to be normal, (c) explore the cause of low EF, and (d) define objective parameters for biliary and nonbiliary abdominal pain. METHODS: Fifty-two patients (42 women, 10 men) who underwent quantitative cholescintigraphy twice (total studies, 104), over a mean period of 38.54 mo between studies, were chosen for retrospective analysis. They were divided into the following groups: control (n = 13; nonbiliary abdominal pain), chronic acalculous cholecystitis (CAC) (n = 27; biliary abdominal pain), chronic calculous cholecystitis (CCC) (n = 6; biliary abdominal pain), and opioid (n = 6; nonbiliary abdominal pain). The last group had received an opioid before cholecystokinin-8 (CCK-8) infusion in one study but not in the other study. A GBEF value of > or =35% was considered normal with a 3-min infusion and > or =50% as normal with a 10-min infusion of CCK-8. RESULTS: The mean GBEF value was reproducible between the 2 sequential studies in the control group (66.0% +/- 20.5% vs. 73.9% +/- 17.7%), CAC group (24.4% +/- 22.3% vs. 16.9% +/- 10.9%), and CCC group (20.8% +/- 20.9% vs. 27.5% +/- 34.5%) but not in the opioid group (14.8% +/- 14.6% vs. 56.5% +/- 31.7%). The severity of GBEF reduction in CAC increased with time: 7.2% +/- 8.1% within 12 mo, 16.1% +/- 14.9% in 13-47 mo, and 23.5% +/- 21.3% in 48-168 mo. None of the 27 patients with CAC developed a gallstone as detected by ultrasound during the study period. In 5 patients with CAC, a mean period of 52.6 +/- 28.9 mo was required for conversion from normal to a low EF. CCK-induced cystic duct spasm is the etiology for low EF in both CAC and CCC. CONCLUSION: Normal and low GBEF values are reproducible in long-term studies. Once the EF reaches a low value, it does not return to normal, and a normal value requires many years to become abnormal. CCK-induced cystic duct spasm is the cause of low GBEF in CAC and CCC, and the severity of EF reduction is similar for both. Exclusion of opioid intake immediately before the study is critical before attributing a low GBEF value to an irreversible GB motor dysfunction.  (+info)

Corn oil emulsion: a simple cholecystagogue for diagnosis of chronic acalculous cholecystitis. (3/30)

This study investigated the use of a corn oil emulsion as an inexpensive alternative to sincalide in the scintigraphic diagnosis of chronic acalculous cholecystitis (CAC). METHODS: Thirty patients with abdominal or right upper quadrant pain underwent (99m)Tc-disofenin hepatobiliary imaging for 60 min. After gallbladder filling, 30 mL of corn oil emulsion were administered orally to all patients followed by dynamic imaging for an additional 60 min in all patients and for 90 min in 26 patients. Gallbladder emptying kinetics were determined with gallbladder ejection fractions calculated at 30, 60, and 90 min. The results were compared with histopathologic or clinical follow-up data. RESULTS: Corn oil emulsion was found to be palatable and free of side effects in all patients. Seven of the 30 patients had histopathologic evidence of CAC, whereas the remaining 23 did not have evidence of gallbladder disease based on clinical follow-up. The 30-, 60-, and 90-min gallbladder ejection fractions were determined to be 25% +/- 22% (mean +/- SD), 47% +/- 28%, and 62% +/- 29%, respectively. Receiver-operating-characteristic analysis showed that the 60-min gallbladder ejection fraction best distinguished between CAC and non-gallbladder disease with an area under the curve of 0.963. A 60-min gallbladder ejection fraction of < or = 20% had 100% sensitivity, 96% specificity, 88% positive predictive value, 100% negative predictive value, and 97% overall accuracy for the diagnosis of CAC. CONCLUSION: Standardized corn oil emulsion appears to be an adequate and well-tolerated gallbladder stimulant. Based on receiver-operating-characteristic analysis, a 60-min gallbladder ejection fraction of < or = 20% using this simple cholecystagogue results in high diagnostic accuracy for CAC.  (+info)

Changes in guinea pig gallbladder smooth muscle Ca2+ homeostasis by acute acalculous cholecystitis. (4/30)

Impaired smooth muscle contractility is a hallmark of acute acalculous cholecystitis. Although free cytosolic Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) is a critical step in smooth muscle contraction, possible alterations in Ca2+ homeostasis by cholecystitis have not been elucidated. Our aim was to elucidate changes in the Ca2+ signaling pathways induced by this gallbladder dysfunction. [Ca2+]i was determined by epifluorescence microscopy in fura 2-loaded isolated gallbladder smooth muscle cells, and isometric tension was recorded from gallbladder muscle strips. F-actin content was quantified by confocal microscopy. Ca2+ responses to the inositol trisphosphate (InsP3) mobilizing agonist CCK and to caffeine, an activator of the ryanodine receptors, were impaired in cholecystitic cells. This impairment was not the result of a decrease in the size of the releasable pool. Inflammation also inhibited Ca2+ influx through L-type Ca2+ channels and capacitative Ca2+ entry induced by depletion of intracellular Ca2+ pools. In addition, the pharmacological phenotype of these channels was altered in cholecystitic cells. Inflammation impaired contractility further than Ca2+ signal attenuation, which could be related to the decrease in F-actin that was detected in cholecystitic smooth muscle cells. These findings indicate that cholecystitis decreases both Ca2+ release and Ca2+ influx in gallbladder smooth muscle, but a loss in the sensitivity of the contractile machinery to Ca2+ may also be responsible for the impairment in gallbladder contractility.  (+info)

Acute acalculous cholecystitis: a rare complication of typhoid fever. (5/30)

Acute acalculous cholecystitis is a very rare complication of typhoid fever, and may be due to multi-drug resistant and virulent forms of Salmonella infection. It is particularly rare in adults. A 21-year-old woman, presenting with fever, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pain, was found to have acute acalculous cholecystitis due to typhoid fever on basis of ultrasonographical findings and a positive Widal's test for Salmonella typhi. She was treated with antibiotics and made a full recovery.  (+info)

Unusual cases of acute cholecystitis and cholangitis: Tokyo Guidelines. (6/30)

Unusual cases of acute cholecystitis and cholangitis include (1) pediatric biliary tract infections, (2) geriatric biliary tract infections, (3) acalculous cholecystitis, (4) acute and intrahepatic cholangitis accompanying hepatolithiasis (5) acute biliary tract infection accompanying malignant pancreatic-biliary tumor, (6) postoperative biliary tract infection, (7) acute biliary tract infection accompanying congenital biliary dilatation and pancreaticobiliary maljunction, and (8) primary sclerosing cholangitis. Pediatric biliary tract infection is characterized by great differences in causes from those of adult acute biliary tract infection, and severe cases should be immediately referred to a specialist pediatric surgical unit. Because biliary tract infection in elderly patients, who often have serious systemic conditions and complications, is likely to progress to a serious form, early surgery or biliary drainage is necessary. Acalculous cholangitis, which often occurs in patients with serious concomitant conditions, such as those in intensive care units (ICUs) and those with disturbed cardiac, pulmonary, and nephric function, has a high mortality and poor prognosis. Cholangitis accompanying hepatolithiasis includes recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, an epidemic disease in Southeast Asia. Biliary tract infections, which often occur after a biliary tract operation and treatment of the biliary tract, may have a fatal outcome, and should be carefully observed. The causes of acute cholangitis associated with pancreaticobiliary maljunction differ before and after operation. Direct cholangiography is most useful in the diagnosis of primary sclerosing cholangitis. If cholangiography visualizes a typical bile duct, differentiation from acute pyogenic cholangitis is easy. This article discusses the individual characteristics, diagnostic criteria, treatment guidelines, and prognosis of these unusual types of biliary tract infection.  (+info)

A case report of dengue virus infection and acalculous cholecystitis in a pregnant returning traveler. (7/30)

Dengue viral infections present a significant risk during pregnancy to both mother and fetus. A young woman at 13 weeks' gestation presented with fever and abdominal pain following a diarrheal illness after returning from Puerto Rico. Over the course of 5 days, she developed nausea, petechiae, severe thrombocytopenia, and acalculous cholecystitis. After a serologic diagnosis of acute infection with dengue virus, she was provided supportive care. An uncomplicated pregnancy led to delivery of a healthy infant at 40 weeks gestation. Travel during pregnancy to dengue-endemic areas poses a risk to both mother and fetus. Pregnancies complicated by dengue infection require close monitoring for potential maternal and fetal complications.  (+info)

Acute, acalculous cholecystitis is seen among patients suffering with bacterial sepsis, burns, trauma, or cancer; clinical conditions that could lead to activation of factor XII-dependent pathways and result in inflammation of the gall bladder. To test this hypothesis, dogs were injected intravenously with ellagic acid or rutin, known polyphenol activators of factor XII, or with Escherichia coli endotoxin, also known to activate factor XII, and monkeys were injected intravenously with ellagic acid. In both species, in vivo activation of factor XII-dependent pathways with polyphenol activator resulted in rapid and selective development of acute vasculitis in the serosa and muscularis of the gallbladder and margination of polymorphonuclear neutrophils in pulmonary blood vessels. Intravenous injection of E. coli endotoxin in dogs resulted in necrosis and thrombosis of vessels that were especially severe in the serosa and muscularis of the gallbladder but also present in vessels of many other ...

Acute cholecystitis. Acute Cholecystitis refers to sudden onset of severe abdominal pain which is caused by inflammation or infection of the lining of gall-bladder. There may be a number of causes that can lead to infection of gall-bladder, but the major cause that can lead to gall-bladder pain and infection is presence of stones. The pain due to acute Cholecystitis is in the upper right portion of body and trunk region. The first bout of pain due to acute Cholecystitis may not be very severe but if left untreated, the pain gets more and more severe with every passing episode. Initially this pain is very intermittent and often continues as being unnoticed. In these cases the only option left is surgery..

Operations were performed on 1166 patients with acute cholecystitis in a group of surgical hospitals of the Novgorod region in the period from 1983 till 1986. Sixty eight of them died (5.8%). Among the immediate causes of death the first place is occupied by purulent complications, the second place -- by acute cardiovascular insufficiency. It is stressed that elderly and senile patients prevailed among those who died after operations for acute cholecystitis (83.8%). The role of timely admission to the hospital and early operations of patients with acute cholecystitis in getting favourable results is stressed.

The pathogenesis of cholecystitis is not clearly understood but it appears that gallstone obstruction (calculous cholecystitis) leads to distension of the gallbladder. This disrupts the blood flow and lymphatic drainage resulting in inflammation, which leads to ischemia (tissue injury) and eventually necrosis (tissue death) if left untreated.. Another possible mechanism is that damage of the gallbladder mucosa releases phospholipase which then interacts with the lecithin in the bile, converting it to lysolecithin.

Ultrasound findings of cholecystitis include:. Gall stones (unless it is acalculous). Thickening of the gall bladder wall (,3mm) often with associated hyperaemia. Pericholecystic fluid. Sonographic Murphys sign. There may be purulent debris within the gall bladder that can include sloughed gall bladder mucosa. Gas in an inflammed gall bladder infers emphysematous cholecystitis - infection with a gas forming organism. This case is difficult; whilst the patient had a typical history, raised inflammatory markers and some of the signs of cholecystitis gall bladder wall thickness and pericholecystic fluid were not present.. He was treated for cholecystitis and improved, later having his gall bladder removed.. ...

INTRODUCTION: According to the Tokyo guidelines, cholecystitis is classified into three categories (Grade I, II, III) depending on its severity. The guideline recommends some therapeutic options for each categories. The guideline notes early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) or gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) is required for grade II cholecystitis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the risk factors for the difficulty of the LC in the Grade II cholecystitis.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Medical records since 2010 to 2015, were retrospectively reviewed. A total of 98 Grade II cholecystitis patients who underwent LC were enrolled in this study, including patients converted to open surgery. The ...
Background During recent years laparoscopic cholecystectomy has dramatically increased, sometimes resulting in overtreatment. Aim of this work was to retrospectively analyze all laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed in a single center in order to find the percentage of patients whose surgical treatment may be explained with this general trend, and to speculate about the possible causes. Methods 831 patients who underwent a laparoscopic cholecystectomy from 1999 to 2008 were retrospectively analyzed. Results At discharge, 43.08% of patients were operated on because of at least one previous episode of biliary colic before the one at admission; 14.08% of patients presented with acute lithiasic cholecystitis; 14.68% were operated on because of an increase in bilirubin level; 1.56% were operated on because of a previous episode of jaundice with normal bilirubin at admission; 0.72% had gallbladder adenomas, 0.72% had cholangitis, 0.36% had biliodigestive fistula and one patient (0.12%) had acalculous

BACKGROUND: Although several investigators have reported that inflammation-based prognostic scores can predict disease severity in patients with various inflammatory diseases, whether or not these scores are associated with disease severity in patients with acute cholecystitis (AC) has not yet been fully clarified. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two hundred and sixty-two patients with AC were reviewed retrospectively. We evaluated the correlations between demographic or clinical variables, including the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS), and the C-reactive protein/albumin (CRP/Alb) ratio, as well as the disease severity grade on the basis of the revised Tokyo guidelines ...

Ultrasound (US) is the preferred imaging examination for the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis and is the first method used when the clinical presentation is suggestive of biliary pathology. The main findings of acute calculous cholecystitis on US include in addition to the presence of stones: distension of the gallbladder lumen, gallbladder wall thickening, a positive US Murphy sign, pericholecystic fluid [5, 6] and a hyperemic wall upon evaluation with Color Doppler [7, 8].. Ultrasound has the best sensitivity and specificity for evaluating patients with suspected gallstones [9]. As reported in the literature [10], some ultrasonographic findings are more strongly associated with acute cholecystitis than others: a positive Murphys sign (pain is provoked by either the transducer or the sonographers palpation under guidance, in the exact area of the gallbladder) is reported to have sensitivity as high as 88% [11, 12].

Acute cholecystitis is a frequent cause of general surgical admissions with a mortality risk that is related to the age of the Patient. Percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) has been used as a bridging technique while awaiting resolution of sepsis. We evaluated the outcome of our study population following percutaneous cholecystostomy for acute cholecystitis due to benign etiologies. Methods: Retrospective review of Patients undergoing PC from January 1988 to December 2008. Patients were reviewed for demographic features, co-morbidity, resolution of symptoms, hospital stay, outcome, complications and ASA class. Results: 62 Patients underwent PC for acute cholecystitis. 49 Patients had calculous cholecystitis. 61% (n = 38) were ≥ 60 years old. 92% had resolution of symptoms within 48 h, and 8% had partial or no resolution. 84% had a decline in total leucocyte counts.

Objective: To assess the outcome of optimal timing of early laparoscopic cholecystectomy in cases of acute calculous cholecystitis. Material and methods: This is a descriptive case series conducted in Shaukat Omer Memorial (Fauji Foundation) Hospital and Hill-Park General Hospital Karachi, from April 2010 to November 2011. Clinical records of 164 patients who underwent early laparoscopic cholecystectomy in acute calculous cholecystitis were retrieved and categorized into two groups according to the timing of surgery from the onset of symptoms (A, who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 72 hours; B, who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy after 72 hours). Primary Outcomes were conversion to open procedure, postoperative complications and length of hospital stay. The SPSS version 11 was utilized for data analyses. Chi-square test was used to assess qualitative and unpaired Student t test was employed for quantitative data. A value of p | 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: A total of
Prophylactic cholecystectomy has been recommended in patients who have diabetes and silent gallstones because of the reports of increased mortality resulting from acute cholecystitis in such patients. To assess recent mortality rates, we reviewed the course of acute cholecystitis in patients hospitalized between 1960 and 1981 at one hospital. Death occurred in 3 of 46 patients with diabetes and in 7 of 263 patients without the disease (p = 0.55). The age-adjusted estimate of the relative risk for death was 2.2 (95% confidence interval, 0.5 to 9.4) for diabetic compared with nondiabetic patients. All 3 diabetic patients who died had been diagnosed as having diabetes within 5 years of death, and only one had been taking insulin. Patients who had elevated blood urea nitrogen levels ( , 20 mg/dL) were found to have an increased mortality rate when compared with patients with normal levels (27% compared with 2%; p , 0.001). Results were similar for the outcome of serious complications. These results ...

Gallstones are estimated to occur in over 20% of Americans annually. Although the majority of these patients are asymptomatic, biliary colic develops in 1-4% of these individuals each year, and acute cholecystitis develops in approximately 20% of these patients [1].. The standard evaluation consists of a history and physical examination, laboratory analysis, and diagnostic imaging. Isolated clinical and laboratory findings are neither sensitive nor specific, with the classic triad of right upper quadrant pain, fever, and leukocytosis occurring in a minority of these cases [2].. The current gold standard for diagnosis is now considered to be a positive hepatobiliary imino-diacetic acid scan (HIDA). Ultrasonographic evidence is also used to confirm this diagnosis, and has a sensitivity of approximately 87% and a specificity of approximately 82% [3]. Because of its ready availability and high diagnostic accuracy, ultrasound is generally considered the initial test of choice for the evaluation of ...

Introduction: Although both conditions are very common, concomitance of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute has never been reported. In this paper, we present a case of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute appendicitis. Case Report: A 66-year-old female presented with a four-day history of right side abdominal pain associated with nausea, pyrexic and tachycardia (pulse rate 105 beats per minute). An ultrasound of her abdomen and pelvis revealed an inflamed, thick-walled gallbladder with evidence of multiple small gallstones. Her appendix could not be visualized. A diagnostic +/- therapeutic laparoscopy was performed, which revealed an inflamed gallbladder and fluid collection in right iliac fossa with foul smelling. A combined laparoscopic cholecystectomy with open appendectomy was performed. Intraoperatively perforated appendix was found. Postoperative follow-up was uneventful and the patient was free of complaint two weeks later. Conclusion: While most of the abdominal

When a certain degree of distension of the gall bladder has been reached, the mucous membrane tends to be lifted away from the sides of the stone and, as a consequence, the stone may slip back into the body of the gallbladder, and any mucoid (from a mucocele) or mucopurulent contents of the gallbladder escape by way of the cystic duct. ...

Treatment for cholecystitis will depend on your symptoms and your general health. People who have gallstones but dont have any symptoms may need no treatment. For mild cases, treatment includes bowel rest, fluids and antibiotics given through a vein, and pain medicine. The main treatment for acute cholecystitis is surgery to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). Often this surgery can be done through small incisions in the abdomen (laparoscopic cholecystectomy), but sometimes it requires a more extensive operation. Your doctor may try to reduce swelling and irritation in the gallbladder before removing it. Sometimes acute cholecystitis is caused by one or more gallstones getting stuck in the main tube leading to the intestine, called the common bile duct. Treatment may involve an endoscopic procedure (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP) to remove the stones in the common bile duct before the gallbladder is removed. In rare cases of chronic cholecystitis, you may also ...
Abstract: Cholecystectomy was carried out in 31 patients with acute cholecystitis within 5-7 days after percutaneous transliver microcholecystotomy. During the operation biopsy was taken from bed of gallbladder and liver left lobe for histological studies. In a part of the biopsy material glucocorticoid receptors of the II and III types were studied, simultaneously with detection of some metabolites and cortisol in blood plasma. Glucocorticoid receptors of the II type were estimated in lymphocytes. Content of glucocorticoid receptors of the II type constituted 20.1 fmole.mg-1 of protein and 16.0 fmole.mg-1 of protein in liver cytosol and in liver bed of gallbladder, respectively; content of the receptors of the III type was equal to 268.0 fmole mg-1 and 329.0 fmole.mg-1 of protein in liver tissue and in liver bed of gallbladder, respectively. In lymphocytes 1223 glucocorticoid receptors of the II type were estimated as compared with 4100 receptors in the cells of healthy persons. Distinct ...
Christopher J Neylan, BA, Daniel T Dempsey, MD, MBA, Kenneth Lee, MD, PhD, Rachel R Kelz, MD, Noel N Williams, MD, Kristoffel R Dumon, MD. Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Objective: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the gold standard treatment for most gallbladder disease. However, little is known about the impact of obesity on cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis. Few have compared laparoscopic converted to open (LCO) and open cholecystectomies in the obese. This study intended to provide a comprehensive analysis of the impact of BMI on cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis.. Methods: Patients who underwent a cholecystectomy (laparoscopic, open, or converted) for acute cholecystitis from 2007-2013 were identified from the American College of Surgeons NSQIP database. Patients were classified into normal (BMI 18.5-25), overweight (BMI 25-30), obese (BMI 30-35), severely obese (BMI 35-40), morbidly obese (BMI 40-50), and super-obese (BMI 50+) groups. The primary outcome was ...
