It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.Bile: An emulsifying agent produced in the LIVER and secreted into the DUODENUM. Its composition includes BILE ACIDS AND SALTS; CHOLESTEROL; and ELECTROLYTES. It aids DIGESTION of fats in the duodenum.Bile Acids and Salts: Steroid acids and salts. The primary bile acids are derived from cholesterol in the liver and usually conjugated with glycine or taurine. The secondary bile acids are further modified by bacteria in the intestine. They play an important role in the digestion and absorption of fat. They have also been used pharmacologically, especially in the treatment of gallstones.Bile Ducts, Extrahepatic: Passages external to the liver for the conveyance of bile. These include the COMMON BILE DUCT and the common hepatic duct (HEPATIC DUCT, COMMON).Bile Duct Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the BILE DUCTS.Bile Ducts, Intrahepatic: Passages within the liver for the conveyance of bile. Includes right and left hepatic ducts even though these may join outside the liver to form the common hepatic duct.Cholestasis: Impairment of bile flow due to obstruction in small bile ducts (INTRAHEPATIC CHOLESTASIS) or obstruction in large bile ducts (EXTRAHEPATIC CHOLESTASIS).Pancreatic Ducts: Ducts that collect PANCREATIC JUICE from the PANCREAS and supply it to the DUODENUM.Gallstones: Solid crystalline precipitates in the BILIARY TRACT, usually formed in the GALLBLADDER, resulting in the condition of CHOLELITHIASIS. Gallstones, derived from the BILE, consist mainly of calcium, cholesterol, or bilirubin.Adenoma, Bile Duct: A benign tumor of the intrahepatic bile ducts.Common Bile Duct Neoplasms: Tumor or cancer of the COMMON BILE DUCT including the AMPULLA OF VATER and the SPHINCTER OF ODDI.Cholangiopancreatography, Endoscopic Retrograde: Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media.

Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.Gallbladder Emptying: A process whereby bile is delivered from the gallbladder into the duodenum. The emptying is caused by both contraction of the gallbladder and relaxation of the sphincter mechanism at the choledochal terminus.Indoramin: An alpha-1 adrenergic antagonist that is commonly used as an antihypertensive agent.Cholecystitis: Inflammation of the GALLBLADDER; generally caused by impairment of BILE flow, GALLSTONES in the BILIARY TRACT, infections, or other diseases.Cholecystitis, Acute: Acute inflammation of the GALLBLADDER wall.

(From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1398)Vibrio: A genus of VIBRIONACEAE, made up of short, slightly curved, motile, gram-negative rods. Various species produce cholera and other gastrointestinal disorders as well as abortion in sheep and cattle.Clothing: Fabric or other material used to cover the body.Cholera Toxin: An ENTEROTOXIN from VIBRIO CHOLERAE. It consists of two major protomers, the heavy (H) or A subunit and the B protomer which consists of 5 light (L) or B subunits. The catalytic A subunit is proteolytically cleaved into fragments A1 and A2. The A1 fragment is a MONO(ADP-RIBOSE) TRANSFERASE. The B protomer binds cholera toxin to intestinal epithelial cells, and facilitates the uptake of the A1 fragment. The A1 catalyzed transfer of ADP-RIBOSE to the alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G PROTEINS activates the production of CYCLIC AMP. Increased levels of cyclic AMP are thought to modulate release of fluid and electrolytes from intestinal crypt cells.

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.

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..

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 ...
Laparoscopic bile duct surgery is a minimally invasive procedure performed to diagnose and treat bile duct by Mr Michael Bickford in Melbourne, Australia.
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.. ...

N2 - Retained or recurrent bile duct stones can be successfully removed in up to 80% to 85% of patients with the use of percutaneous or endoscopic techniques. 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) ...

Twelve children belonged to the syndromic group of PILBD and four children belonged to the non-syndromic group. A definite histological diagnosis of bile duct paucity was established in only two children (aged 4 and 9 months) during the first percutaneous needle biopsy. In the remaining 14 children a varying degree of bile duct destruction was evident in the follow up percutaneous or wedge liver biopsies. The evolving changes were characterized by inflammatory infiltration near or at the ductal wall, the presence of dysmorphic ductules, the degeneration of ductal epithelia and a progressive decrease of interlobular bile ducts.

Biliary complications after LT continue to haunt LT teams, and they are still considered the Achilles heel of the posttransplant period.[2-5] Nonetheless, significant advances in both surgical techniques and the endoscopic and radiological management of this common problem after LT have improved the outcomes of patients who develop not only ASs but other complications such as bile leaks, nonanastomotic strictures, stones, and bile duct cast syndrome.[2-5, 29] A limited number of case reports of LT recipients indicate that SOC with the Spyglass cholangioscopy system is useful for obtaining biopsy samples and for directly visualizing and aiding in the passage of a guide wire in difficult strictures that cannot be traversed with fluoroscopy.[18, 19, 22] However, there is a lack of adequately collected data describing the specific cholangioscopic findings in LT recipients with ASs and other biliary complications.

A bile duct is any of a number of long tube-like structures that carry bile, and is present in most vertebrates. Bile, required for the digestion of food, is secreted by the liver into passages that carry bile toward the hepatic duct, which joins with the cystic duct (carrying bile to and from the gallbladder) to form the common bile duct, which opens into the intestine. The biliary tree (see below) is the whole network of various sized ducts branching through the liver. The path is as follows: Bile canaliculi → Canals of Hering → interlobular bile ducts → intrahepatic bile ducts → left and right hepatic ducts merge to form → common hepatic duct exits liver and joins → cystic duct (from gall bladder) forming → common bile duct → joins with pancreatic duct → forming ampulla of Vater → enters duodenum The bile duct is green like the gallbladder, because of bile stains. Inflation of a balloon in the bile duct causes, through the vagus nerve, activation of the brain stem and the ...

BACKGROUND/AIMS Mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor is rare, and has an unusual histologic characteristic of having various degrees of cellular atypia ranging from dysplasia to invasive carcinoma in the same specimen. To gain insight into the role of p16, p14 and p53 in the carcinogenic process of bile duct tumor, we analyzed the expression status of these proteins in mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining of p16, p14 and p53 were performed in 34 paraffin embedded tissues obtained from 22 patients of mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor. RESULTS Thirty-four specimens were categorized into low-grade dysplasia (9), high-grade dysplasia (4), carcinoma in situ (CIS, 11) and invasive carcinoma (10) based on the degree of cytologic and structural atypia. p53 overexpressions were found in 6 (17.6%, 3 in CIS, 3 in invasive carcinoma) and more frequently observed in the advanced histologic stages (p|0.05). Loss of p16 staining was found only in 2 (6%) of low-grade
Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is the most commonly used surgical technique for reconstruction of the biliary tract in patients with benign biliary stricture [3, 5-8]. In those patients, there is a relatively high incidence of strictured HJ ranging from 2% to 25% [2, 3, 7-10]. The endoscopic management of these complications seems to be the best option and least invasive compared to interventional radiology or reoperation [11-13]. However, the altered anatomy of the Roux-en-Y construction represents a major difficulty to access the HJ by the endoscope. The use of standard gastroduodenoscope proved to be extremely difficult, time consuming and with high failure rate [14, 15].. Several attempts were reported to overcome these difficulties in endoscopic approach to HJ. The use of long enteroscope, whether double balloon or single balloon, was shown to improve the results of endoscopic access. However, these reports are still few with limited number of cases and the availability of the enteroscopes ...

A surgical marker clip and method for enhancing the safe performance of a cholangiography and cholecystectomy is disclosed. The clips are configured to frictionally engage the outer surface of the duct and are retained in place by light clamping force without damaging the duct. Placement of the clips allows a physician to visually isolate the common bile duct from the cystic duct during laparoscopic procedures which reduces bile duct injury typically caused by misidentification or visual misperception of the anatomy during the procedure.
Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) may have an atypical serum alkaline phosphatase elevation, antimitochondrial antibodies, histologic features of bile duct injury/loss, or cholangiographic findings of focal biliary strictures and dilations. These manifestations characterize the overlap syndromes. Patients can be classified as having AIH with features of primary biliary cholangitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, or a cholestatic syndrome. The gold standard of diagnosis is clinical judgment. Histologic evaluation is a major diagnostic component. Treatment is based on algorithms; outcomes vary depending on the predominant disease component. Combination therapy has been the principal recommendation.

Bill had 7 great days in a row. His pain was minimal. It was wonderful to have our old life back. Even if it was just for a short time. Unfortunately, like usual for us the good is shortly followed by the bad. Bills pain gradually came back. This pass Sunday, he started to look a little jaundice. He was running no fever and felt OK and still had an appetite. In fact he gained 14 pounds in 2 weeks and he mentioned that his belly is getting big again. Yesterday, he went for routine blood work for his chemo treatment. We found out today the billirubin is elevated. Chemo was cancelled and replaced with a CT scan and ultra sound. With the billirubin high, there was concerned that either the stent in the bile duct was clogged again or the tumor in the bile duct has grown. The test showed that the cancer has grown in the liver. They can not tell if the stent is clogged or the tumor has grown in the bile duct. Bills abdomen in retaining fluid and needs to be drained (reason for the rapid weight gain ...
When the gallbladder is removed, special clips are used to seal the tube that connects the gallbladder to the main bile duct. However, bile fluid can occasionally leak out into the tummy (abdomen) after the gallbladder is removed.. Symptoms of a bile leak include tummy pain, feeling sick, a fever and a swollen tummy.. Sometimes this fluid can be drained off. Occasionally, an operation is required to drain the bile and wash out the inside of your tummy.. Bile leakage occurs in around 1% of cases. ...
ERCP is a specialized endoscopic procedure that is performed with fluoroscopy and contrast injection to examine and treat conditions of the bile ducts and pancreas, such as removing gallstones, opening obstructed bile ducts, and obtaining biopsies in suspected tumors. Conventional ERCP is hindered by the flat, two-dimensional, black and white image rendered by fluoroscopy, which can make it difficult to determine where to obtain tissue samples and potentially lead to an inaccurate or inconclusive clinical diagnosis. As a result, gastrointestinal endoscopists may need to conduct additional testing or even repeat the entire ERCP procedure. Data shows that up to 30 percent of diagnostic ERCPs are inconclusive, potentially creating the need for additional testing ...

Common bile duct stones complicate cholelithiasis in 10 to 15 percent of cases. Most authorities believe ductal stones should be removed because of possible complications, including cholangitis and acute pancreatitis. The ability to predict the presence or absence of bile duct stones would be helpful in the management of these patients. Because of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic ultrasonography and laparoscopic surgery, Prat and associates conducted a study to identify predictors of common bile duct stones in patients with biliary symptoms.. The 880 patients in the prospective study had been referred for endoscopic ultrasonography for the evaluation of common bile duct stones. This procedure is considered the gold standard for the diagnosis of common bile duct stones. The prevalence of choledocholithiasis in the study population was 18.8 percent (166 of 880 patients). In patients under age 70, the prevalence of ...

Brachytherapy is done by an interventional radiologist and a radiation oncologist. The oncologist inserts radiation seeds attached to a wire into the bile duct. The seeds are placed as close as possible to the tumor or into the tumor itself. This is so that fewer normal cells are exposed to radiation. A small tube called a percutaneous transhepatic bile duct stent is put in the bile duct through your skin. The doctor carefully inserts the wire through your skin. Its guided down the stent to the area where the cancer is located. The doctor uses X-rays to guide the placement. The wire that extends outside your body is secured to your skin. After a period of time, the doctor carefully removes it using X-rays again as a guide. You will need to stay in the hospital while the radioactive seeds and wire are in place. ...

Prevalence of global fractures was 38% (non vertebral 38% and vertebral 7%). We found an association between vertebral fractures and serum bilirubin ,1.3 mg/dL, serum albumin ,3.4 g/dL and F4 stage by FibroScan® (p,0.05), which remained significant after adjustment for possible confusion factors. Likewise, hip fracture was associated with early menopause, F3 stage and lumbar spine and femoral neck OP (p,0.05). A T-score ,-1.5 in lumbar spine (58.5% [95% CI: 42-75]) and femoral neck (53% [95% CI: 48-69]) did not correlate with prevalent fractures. The mean 10 yrs absolute risk of fractures obtained by FRAX® was 6% for major fractures and 2% for hip fracture. Doctors younger than 40 yrs had ordered DXA more frequently (68%) than doctors over 40 yrs (46), p=0.05. OP prevention and treatment was in compliance with EASL guidelines in 58% of eligible patients. FRAX® recommendations identified 22% patients eligible for OP treatment whereas EASL guidelines identified 58% (p=0.001).. ...

As a general surgeon with 12 years of experience: I have never had a cystic duct leak or a major bile duct injury in my practice. I have had some duct-of-Luschka leaks, however; roughly the 1/200 rate quoted in the literature. In recent years, my bile leak rate is down. I think it is because of my increased use of blunt dissection to free the gallbladder from the liver bed, and decreased use of cautery (especially when I cant visualize a nice areolar plane.) Sometimes I essentially peel the gallbladder off of the liver. Staying out of the liver (and also staying out of the gallbladder), is a big deal in my opinion. I think it reduces the rate of bile leaks and of major bleeds from the liver bed ...
