Investigation of bile ducts before laparoscopic cholecystectomy. (1/273)

BACKGROUND: Since the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, there has been controversy about the investigation of the bile ducts and the management of common bile duct stones. Routine peroperative cholangiography (POC) in all cases has been recommended. We have adopted a policy of not performing routine POC, and the results of 700 cases are reported. METHODS: Since 1990, all patients have undergone preoperative ultrasound scan. We have performed selective preoperative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) because of a clinical history of jaundice and/or pancreatitis, abnormal liver function tests and ultrasound evidence of dilated bile ducts (N=78, 11.1%). The remaining 622 patients did not have a routine POC, but selective peroperative cholangiogram (POC) was performed only in 42 patients (6%) because of unsuccessful ERCP or mild alteration in the criteria for the presence of bile duct stones. The remaining 580 patients did not undergo POC. Careful dissection of Calot's triangle was performed in all cases to reduce the risk of bile duct injuries. RESULTS: The overall operative complications, postoperative morbidity and mortality was 1.71%, 2.14% and 0.43%, respectively. Bile duct injuries occurred in two patients (0.26%) and both were recognized during the operation and repaired. There was a single incidence of retained stone in this series of 700 cases (0.14%), which required postoperative ERCP. CONCLUSIONS: This policy of selective preoperative ERCP, and not routine peroperative cholangiogram, is cost effective and not associated with significant incidence of retained stones or bile duct injuries after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.  (+info)

Acute carbon tetrachloride feeding induces damage of large but not small cholangiocytes from BDL rat liver. (2/273)

Bile duct damage and/or loss is limited to a range of duct sizes in cholangiopathies. We tested the hypothesis that CCl4 damages only large ducts. CCl4 or mineral oil was given to bile duct-ligated (BDL) rats, and 1, 2, and 7 days later small and large cholangiocytes were purified and evaluated for apoptosis, proliferation, and secretion. In situ, we measured apoptosis by morphometric and TUNEL analysis and the number of small and large ducts by morphometry. Two days after CCl4 administration, we found an increased number of small ducts and reduced number of large ducts. In vitro apoptosis was observed only in large cholangiocytes, and this was accompanied by loss of proliferation and secretion in large cholangiocytes and loss of choleretic effect of secretin. Small cholangiocytes de novo express the secretin receptor gene and secretin-induced cAMP response. Consistent with damage of large ducts, we detected cytochrome P-4502E1 (which CCl4 converts to its radicals) only in large cholangiocytes. CCl4 induces selective apoptosis of large ducts associated with loss of large cholangiocyte proliferation and secretion.  (+info)

Detection of Helicobacter DNA in bile from bile duct diseases. (3/273)

Several species of Helicobacter colonize the hepatobiliary tract of animals and cause hepatobiliary diseases. The aim of this study is to investigate Helicobacter found in the biliary tract diseases of humans. Thirty-two bile samples (15 from bile duct cancer, 6 from pancreatic head cancer, and 11 from intrahepatic duct stone) were obtained by percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage. Polymerase chain reaction analysis using Helicobacter specific urease A gene and 16S rRNA primers, bile pH measurement, and Helicobacter culture were performed. Helicobacter DNA was detected in 37.5%, and 31.3% by PCR with ureA gene, and 16S rRNA, respectively. The bile pH was not related to the presence of Helicobacter. The cultures were not successful. In conclusion, Helicobacter can be detected in the bile of patients with bile duct diseases. The possibility of pathogenesis of biliary tract diseases in humans by these organisms will be further investigated.  (+info)

Helical computed tomographic cholangiography versus endosonography for suspected bile duct stones: a prospective blinded study in non-jaundiced patients. (4/273)

BACKGROUND: Helical computed tomography performed after intravenous administration of a cholangiographic contrast material (HCT-cholangiography) may be useful for detecting bile duct stones in non-jaundiced patients. However, this method has never been compared with other non-invasive biliary imaging tests. AIMS: To compare prospectively HCT-cholangiography and endosonography (EUS) in a group of non-jaundiced patients with suspected bile duct stones. METHODS: Fifty two subjects underwent both HCT-cholangiography and EUS. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP), with or without instrumental bile duct exploration, served as a reference method, and was successful in all but two patients. RESULTS: Thirty four patients (68%) were found to have choledocholithiasis at ERCP. The sensitivity for HCT-cholangiography in stone detection was 85%, specificity 88%, and accuracy 86%. For EUS the sensitivity was 91%, specificity 100%, and accuracy 94%. The differences were not significant. No serious complications occurred with either method. CONCLUSIONS: HCT-cholangiography and EUS are safe and comparably accurate methods for detecting bile duct stones in non-jaundiced patients.  (+info)

Clinical features and management of biliary ascariasis in a non-endemic area. (5/273)

Biliary ascariasis is common in certain geographical areas of the world. In India, it is common in the Kashmir valley and only stray cases have been reported from other parts of the country. Between January 1995 and May 1997, 14 patients with biliary ascariasis were seen at our centre, which is more than 1000 km from the Kashmir valley. The mean (+/- SD) age of the patients was 31.7 (+/- 6.1) years and all were females. None of them had been to a place known to be endemic for biliary ascariasis. Four patients presented with acute cholangitis, eight with acute abdominal pain and vomiting, and the remaining two were diagnosed incidentally during surgery for gallstone disease. Barring these two patients, ultrasound examination of the abdomen diagnosed the condition accurately. In 10 patients, a part of the worm was visible outside the papilla of Vater. The roundworm was caught in a Dormia basket and could be extracted in nine patients. In one patient the worm migrated inside the bile duct while it was being caught in a Dormia basket. In this and two other patients, in whom the worm had migrated completely inside the bile duct, worms were removed with the help of a Dormia basket after endoscopic sphincterotomy. There were no complications of endoscopic therapy. In the two patients in whom biliary ascariasis was detected during surgery, the worms were removed after choledocholithotomy. On a mean follow-up of 13.8 months, only one patient had a recurrence of biliary ascariasis. It is concluded that biliary ascariasis is not an uncommon disease and must be considered as a possibility in patients presenting with acute cholangitis and biliary pain even in a non-endemic area. Ultrasonography is an excellent diagnostic tool and endoscopic management is very effective and safe in the treatment of these patients.  (+info)

Expression of CD44 on bile ducts in primary sclerosing cholangitis and primary biliary cirrhosis. (6/273)

AIM: To examine expression of CD44, a transmembrane glycoprotein involved in lymphocyte homing and activation, in inflammatory liver diseases. METHODS: Formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissues were obtained from normal, uninvolved liver from patients undergoing partial hepatectomy for metastatic carcinoma (9) and transplant hepatectomy specimens from patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (12), primary sclerosing cholangitis (8), autoimmune hepatitis (3), hepatitis C (3), and secondary sclerosing cholangitis (1). Expression of CD44 (using antibodies to three core epitopes), HLA-DR, and lymphocyte phenotypic markers was studied by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: CD44 expression was not detected in either hepatocytes or biliary epithelial cells in normal livers. In sections from all 27 transplant hepatectomy specimens, CD44 was positive in bile duct epithelial cells but not in hepatocytes. The proportion of CD44+ ducts was much higher in biliary disease than in chronic hepatitis. By contrast, expression of HLA-DR was detected in a relatively small percentage of bile ducts. Activated, memory phenotype CD4+ T lymphocytes were increased in the parenchyma of all diseased livers and an infiltrate of activated CD8+ cells within the biliary epithelium was evident in inflammatory biliary disease. CONCLUSIONS: CD44 appears to play an important role in the development of autoimmune biliary disease by promoting lymphoepithelial interactions, whereas HLA-DR may be involved in the subsequent progression of these conditions.  (+info)

Radiologic findings of Mirizzi syndrome with emphasis on MRI. (7/273)

We have reported a case of Mirizzi syndrome preoperatively diagnosed using MR cholangiopancreatography. MRCP and T2-weighted image using a single-shot fast spin-echo sequence accurately depicted all components of Mirizzi syndrome, including impacted stone in the neck of the gallbladder compressing the common hepatic duct and wall-thickening of the gallbladder without any evidence of malignancy. The combination of MRCP and T2-weighted image can be counted on to replace conventional modalities of diagnosing Mirizzi syndrome without any loss of diagnostic accuracy.  (+info)

Characterization and isolation of ductular cells coexpressing neural cell adhesion molecule and Bcl-2 from primary cholangiopathies and ductal plate malformations. (8/273)

It has recently been shown that reactive bile ductules display neuroendocrine features, including immunoreactivity for the neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM). In this study we have compared the immunohistochemical expression of NCAM with that of HEA-125 (biliary specific) and LKM-1 (hepatocyte specific) and other markers relevant to morphogenesis (Bcl-2, EMA) and cell proliferation (Ki-67) in cryostat sections from different chronic liver diseases and from fetal livers at different gestational ages. In parallel, viable NCAM-positive ductular cells were purified from collagenase digests of cirrhotic livers by immunomagnetic separation and characterized by immunocytochemistry and transmission electron microscopy. We demonstrated that reactive ductules with atypical morphology coexpressed NCAM and Bcl-2 and were found mainly in congenital diseases associated with ductal plate malformation and in primary cholangiopathies. On the contrary, reactive ductules with typical morphology were negative for NCAM/Bcl-2 and positive for EMA. Reactive ductules coexpressing NCAM/Bcl-2 were negative for the proliferation marker Ki-67 and appeared to be directly connected with periportal hepatocytes. In fetal livers NCAM/Bcl-2 was transiently expressed during the early developmental stages of ductal plate (10-16 weeks) and started to disappear as the ductal plate began duplicating. NCAM-positive ductal plate cells were Ki-67 negative, becoming positive in duplicated segments. Thus the histogenesis of ductular reactive cells seems to recapitulate the early stages of biliary ontogenesis. In primary cholangiopathies and ductal plate malformations, these cells do not appear to maturate further, and thus abundant ductular structures coexist with vanishing mature ducts. These NCAM-positive ductular cells were immunopurified from patients with chronic cholestatic liver diseases and showed ultrastructural features consistent with a less differentiated phenotype than mature cholangiocytes. These isolated cells represent a useful model for in vitro studies.  (+info)

The first patient has been enrolled in a trial evaluating elafibranor as a treatment for a liver bile duct disease known as primary biliary cholangitis.
A bile duct is a tube that carries bile between the liver and gallbladder and the intestine. Bile is a substance made by the liver that helps with digestion. There are many problems that can affect your bile ducts. Some problems include gallstones, primary sclerosing cholangitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, biliary atresia, and cancer.

Cirrhosis refers to the replacement of healthy liver tissue with scar tissue. When a person is suffering from a chronic liver disease, the liver becomes inflamed. That inflammation slowly leads to the creation of scar tissue. Because scar tissue does not perform normal liver functions as living tissue does, the scarred areas of the liver cease to function. Over time, as healthy tissue is replaced with scar tissue, the liver starts to fail. Cirrhosis can also lead to cancer of the liver.. The most common cause of cirrhosis in the U.S. is alcoholism. The liver is responsible for breaking down alcohol, and some of the toxic chemicals in alcohol trigger inflammation, which leads to cirrhosis. This happens gradually, after a decade or more of heavy drinking. Other causes of cirrhosis include hepatitis, fatty liver, bile duct disease, and certain genetic conditions.. Early on, cirrhosis may have no symptoms. But as it progresses, people may experience fatigue, nausea, weight loss, jaundice (yellowing ...

Different approaches to the treatment of bile duct injuries. According to the existing literature, endoscopic and/or radiologic management of BDI is feasible, whenever theres a continuity in bile duct and not a complete transection. These approaches can include an endoscopic retrograde cholangiography to drain bile ducts after sphincterotomy or placement of endoprosthesis [1]. Approach by an endoscopic retrograde cholangiography allows biliary stenting or balloon dilatation, considered to be the first-line treatment in some referral centres. Usually the placement of a 7 - 8.5 French single plastic stent is the first step in a series of endoscopic rehabilitation protocol. If a single stent is not effective, placement of multiple stents or a large-diameter stent can be selected [2]. Patients undergoing endoscopic stent treatment has shown a safe and favourable long term outcome, although no consensus has been reached regarding placement of one single stent alone or sequential insertion of ...

PhD ceremony: Ms. S. Op den Dries, 16.15 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen. Dissertation: Bile duct injury in liver transplantation. Study on etiology and the protective role of machine perfusion Promotor(s): prof. R.J. Porte, prof. J.A. Lisman. Faculty: Medical Sciences. Non-anastomotic biliary strictures (NAS) are a major complication after liver transplantation. The development of strictures (narrowing) of the bile ducts is characteristic of this complication, often leading to morbidity and the need for re-transplantation. The studies described in this thesis resulted in a better understanding of the causes of NAS and provide new strategies to prevent bile duct injury and the subsequent formation of NAS. The high incidence of NAS after donation after cardiac death (21-33%) compared to donation after brain death (1-13%), demonstrates the significant role of lack of oxygen (ischemia) in the development of NAS. In this thesis, severe injury to the bile duct epithelium (the lining of ...

Introduction: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by non academic surgeons as well as general surgery residents, under the supervision of academic surgeons. Bile duct injury is a catastrophic complication of this procedure. There is a general perception that performance of LC in a facility with a surgical training program offers a safer environment due to the presence of an assistant surgeon.. Objective: To compare the rate of bile duct injury, conversion and overall mortality between hospitals with surgical training programs (Group I), and hospitals without surgical training programs (Group II) after LC.. Methods: Methods: Using the Florida State Inpatient Database we extracted and analyzed data for LC and conversion from LC to open cholecystectomy (OC) during the years 1997 thru 2006. Bile duct injury was indicated by a biliary reconstruction procedure performed during the same admission. Hospitals with surgical training programs were ...

Biliary-enteric anastomosis (BEA) is a common surgical procedure performed for the management of biliary obstruction or leakage that results from a variety of benign and malignant diseases. Complications following BEA are not rare. We aimed to determine the incidence and the factors associated with early complications occurring after BEA for benign diseases. We reviewed the medical records of all patients who underwent BEA for benign diseases at our institution between January 1988 and December 2009. The primary outcome was early post operative complication. Logistic regression analysis was done to identify factors predicting the occurrence of complications. Records of 79 patients were reviewed. There were 34 (43%) males and 45 (57% females). Majority (53%) had choledocholithiasis with impacted stone or distal stricture, followed by traumatic injury to the biliary system (33%). Thirty-four patients (43%) underwent a hepaticojejunostomy, 19 patients (24%) underwent a choledochojejunostomy, and

As part of medical care subjects will be undergoing an endoscopic procedure (ERCP) in order to evaluate and stent a bile duct blockage. During the ECRP and just prior to the stent placement subjects will undergo the placement of a radiofrequency ablation catheter into the bile duct blockage. Heat will be applied to the bile duct in order to open the blockage and prevent the re-growth of tissue into the stent; after the radiofrequency ablation, stent will be placed. Three days after the procedure subjects will receive a phone call from the research coordinator to check any adverse or unwanted effects of the treatment. The study procedure (radiofrequency ablation) takes place over 10 minutes during ERCP. The subjects will undergo routine follow up for their medical problems. No follow up visits are required as part of the study ...
OBJECTIVE: To identify Paediatric patients with biliary stone disease presenting to a tertiary care hospital in order to determine the etiology, presentation and management. METHODS: Retrospective study of all cases of ultrasonographically proven biliary stones under the age of 15 years from January 1988 to December 2008. Data included their risk factors, complications, management and outcome. RESULTS: Total 32 patients were identified with biliary stones, treated in the hospital. Mean age at presentation was 8.25 +/- 3.33 years. Sixteen patients underwent cholecystectomy. CONCLUSION: Paediatric cholelithiasis is an atypical and under-diagnosed cause of abdominal pain in childhood. True prevalence of the disease may be higher than reported. Appropriate surgical intervention is required in patients with symptomatic and complicated biliary lithiasis.

There are two different ways to connect the bile duct to the intestine, depending on the liver disease of the patient. The first way is connecting the patients own bile duct to the donor bile duct. If this is done, a small tube called a T-tube, is placed between the bile duct connections. The tube will then exit through the skin but is easily concealed by clothing. This allows the team to monitor the amount and consistency of bile being made by the liver. This tube is tied off within the first week and removed six months after transplantation. The second way to connect the bile duct to the intestine is used if a patients own bile duct is diseased. In this situation, the new bile duct will be connected with the patients intestine. A small tube called a stent, is placed at the connection site. It later falls out of the duct on its own and is passed in the stool sometime after the operation ...

Most experts believe that PBC is an autoimmune condition. This means that something goes wrong with the immune system (the bodys natural defence against infection and illness) and it attacks healthy tissue instead of fighting off infection. In cases of PBC, the immune system sends specialised cells that usually kill bacteria and viruses to the bile ducts.. These cells damage the surface of the bile ducts, which gradually become scarred and disrupt the flow of bile out of the liver. This increases the amount of bile in the liver, which over time can cause it to also become extensively damaged and scarred (cirrhosis).. This damage can gradually cause the liver to lose its function. As the liver plays a vital role in filtering out impurities and toxins from your blood, loss of liver function is potentially fatal.. It is not known what causes the immune system to malfunction and attack the bile ducts.. ...

However, problems related to difficult biliary access, large stones, and biliary strictures may decrease the success rate of this approach. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in 16 patients with complicated biliary stones treated prospectively over a 24-month period. Successful stone fragmentation was achieved in 15 patients (94%) using a Dornier HM3 lithotripter (average of 2290 shocks at 22 kV). Three patients (19%) required a second ESWL ...

The biliary tree consists of intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile ducts and is lined by biliary epithelial cells (or cholangiocytes). There are also peribiliary glands around the intrahepatic large bile ducts and extrahepatic bile ducts. The biliary tr
Throughout the reported case, we found recurrence within 2 months, and tumor progression was very rapid. However, there were no cases that progressed as rapidly as shown in our case. The cases reported so far mostly presented a polypoid pattern of the tumor in the CT or the pathology of the removed specimen (7 of 10 cases). Alternatively, in the present case, the tumor was flat on the bile duct and tumor growth showed an infiltrative pattern, usually shown in gallbladder carcinosarcoma. An infiltrative pattern may have poor prognosis compared with a polypoid pattern because polypoid types tend to arise earlier with obstruction of the bile duct and obstructive symptoms, which enable easier detection [14]. The present case shows very radical progression, thus having the possibility that multiple small hidden malignancies would go undetected preoperatively, as well as the histochemical features of a tumor, especially sarcomatoid cells, associated with poor prognosis. There are few references which ...
The major findings of these studies relate to the development and morphological, biochemical, molecular, and functional characterization of an animal model of selective bile duct damage that is restricted to large hormone-responsive ducts. In 1-wk BDL rats subsequently treated by gavage with a single dose of CCl4, we found that 2 days after CCl4 administration, the number of large (,15 μm in diam) bile ducts decreased. Consistent with the finding of bile duct loss limited to large ducts, 2 days after acute CCl4 treatment, apoptosis was detected in large ducts and cholangiocytes, respectively. DNA synthesis transiently decreased in large cholangiocytes. Inasmuch as large isolated cholangiocytes are localized in large bile ducts in BDL rats (1), the loss of proliferative capacity in large isolated cholangiocytes corresponds with the reduction of numbers of large ducts in 2-day CCl4-treated rats. Finally, consistent with CCl4-induced bile duct damage limited to large hormone-responsive ducts, ...

The liver holds about 1 pint (13%) of the bodys blood supply at any given moment. The liver has 2 main parts (lobes). Both of these are made up of 8 segments that consist of a thousand small lobes (lobules). These lobules are connected to small tubes (ducts) that connect with larger ducts from the common hepatic duct. The common hepatic duct transports the bile produced by the liver cells to the gallbladder and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). It does this through the common bile duct. Bile is a clear green or yellow fluid that helps break down the food you eat. ...
The doctors found that the median survival time from the diagnosis of AIDS and AIDS cholangiopathy was 23 and 9 months, respectively. In addition, they determined that HAART significantly improved the mortality of patients with AIDS cholangiopathy.. The team determined that any opportunistic infection of the digestive tract, lung, eye, nervous system, skin, or systemic involvement at diagnosis was an indicator of poor prognosis.. They also found that patients with high serum ALP levels tended to have a shorter life expectancy than those with normal or slightly elevated serum ALP levels. However, CD4 lymphocyte counts, type of cholangiopathy, and the performance of sphincterotomy were not correlated with patient survival.. Dr Wei-Fang Kos team concluded, HAART administration most likely accounts for the recent dramatic improvement in survival of patients with AIDS cholangiopathy. Underlying immunosuppressive status, reflected by the presence or history of any opportunistic infections, is ...
Realizing these weaknesses and taking advantage of the tiny caliber and re-usability of SpyProbe, we have proposed and successful performed cholangioscopies by inserting the SpyProbe through two ERCP cannulas (instead of SpyScope) without the need for sphincterotomy:11 (i) the Tandem XL cannula (7-Fr double-lumen catheter with a 5.5-Fr. tip, Boston Scientific) and (ii) the Swing-tip cannula (9-Fr single-lumen catheter with a 4.5-Fr tip, Olympus, Tokyo, Japan). Apart from the enormous cost saving (AUD $70 per Tandem XL and AUD $130 per Swing Tip catheter; overall cost NVP-AUY922 solubility dmso less than one tenth of SpyGlass system), the major advantage of this new technique is the ability to cannulate non-dilated biliary or pancreatic ducts, and to examine lesions in small intrahepatic ducts that would be difficult for the SpyScope to reach. Without the need for sphincterotomy,. this approach would be ideal for patients who are at-risk of sphincterotomy complications (e.g. bleeding diathesis) ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnostic approach to the child with hepatobiliary disease. AU - El-Youssef, Mounif. AU - Whitington, Peter F. PY - 1998/1/1. Y1 - 1998/1/1. N2 - The purpose of this review is to present our approach to diagnosis of the child With liver disease. Since liver disease is relatively rare in pediatric practice, most clinicians lack experience with its diagnosis. Furthermore, diverse disorders can present with virtually identical findings because liver injury expresses itself in limited ways, particularly in the neonate. However, within the limited patterns of presentation, there is usually sufficient diversity to allow for discrimination and, therefore, differential diagnosis. Clinicians can use pragmatism and logic to achieve a systematic and practical approach to diagnosis. This approach uses a matrix that combines several simple parameters - the age at presentation, the dominant presenting findings, and a few well-chosen tests - to arrive at a very limited differential. From that ...

  • When the main bile duct is removed, another way for the bile to drain into the intestine has to be created. (uwhealth.org)
  • This is done by selecting a piece of the bowel, making a small opening in it, and then connecting the bile duct remaining with the liver directly to the intestine. (uwhealth.org)
  • Bile flows through a network of tubes known as the biliary tract, into the small intestine. (eurekalert.org)
  • Here we report a rare case of Caroli's disease limited to one liver segment, which was initially misdiagnosed as an intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct . (bvsalud.org)
  • When you eat, your gallbladder pushes the bile into tubes called bile ducts. (medlineplus.gov)
  • After four weeks, the cells had fully covered the miniature scaffolding resulting in artificial tubes which exhibited key features of a normal, functioning bile duct. (medicalxpress.com)
  • The bile duct is a system of tubes that carry bile, which is essential for digestion, from the liver. (uabmedicine.org)
  • Intrahepatic bile ducts are a network of small tubes that carry bile inside the liver. (oncolink.org)
  • Extrahepatic bile ducts are small tubes that carry bile outside of the liver. (oncolink.org)
  • However, there is renewed hope that this may one day change, with recent findings from research conducted at MBI revealing how liver cells already possess the ability to eliminate excess bile from tubes located inside the liver, which feed bile into the biliary ducts. (eurekalert.org)
  • The key to the liver's ability to eliminate excess bile is the fact that the 'tubes' through which bile enters the biliary tract are not merely a set of inactive pipes, but are actually hollow spaces between living cells. (eurekalert.org)
  • We treat the entire range of childhood and young adult conditions related to the liver and gastrointestinal system - including rare and complex diseases. (seattlechildrens.org)
