Chronic cough due to bronchobiliary fistula. (1/165)

Bronchobiliary fistula is a rare cause of chronic cough. Here we describe a 70-year-old woman complaining of chronic cough and copious dark-yellow watery sputum. The presence of air in the biliary tract in the lower cuts of a computerized tomography scan of the chest and positive bile in the sputum led to the suspicion of bronchobiliary fistula. The diagnosis was confirmed by percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography. Drainage of the intrahepatic biliary tract resulted in complete resolution of her symptoms.  (+info)

Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy: a reappraisal of its indications and results. (2/165)

A critical evaluation is made of 131 patients submitted to choledocho or hepaticojejunostomy. The main indications for hepaticojejunostomy were iatrogenic strictures of CBD (60 patients), and choledocholithiasis with markedly dilated duct (41 patients). The overall mortality rate was 4% representing principally renal hepatic failure, bile peritonitis and bleeding. The complications following hepaticojejunostomy included only in one case biliary fistula which required reoperation. The long-term results of 80 patients available for a followup study were as follows: 63 patients (78.7%) were symptom-free at 2-13 years followup; 8 patients had brief episodes of cholangitis which responded to antibiotic and corticosteroid treatment; 9 patients required reoperation for stricture of anastomosis. These overall results are a strong argument for hepaticojejunostomy which, compared with choledochoduodenostomy, avoids the hazards of the so-called sump syndrome and of the reflux of enteric contents in the CBD. An increased incidence of peptic ulcer disease in the patients submitted to hepaticojejunostomy was not observed. In very high strictures and in reinterventions anastomosis between left hepatic duct and Roux-en-Y jejunal limb was carried out. The results achieved with this technique, which was performed in 26 patients, were about the same following hepaticojejunostomy.  (+info)

Genetic factors at the enterocyte level account for variations in intestinal cholesterol absorption efficiency among inbred strains of mice. (3/165)

Interindividual and interstrain variations in cholesterol absorption efficiency occur in humans and animals. We investigated physiological biliary and small intestinal factors that might determine variations in cholesterol absorption efficiency among inbred mouse strains. We found that there were significant differences in cholesterol absorption efficiency measured by plasma, fecal, and lymphatic methods: <25% in AKR/J, C3H/J, and A/J strains; 25-30% in SJL/J, DBA/2J, BALB/cJ, SWR/J, and SM/J strains; and 31-40% in C57L/J, C57BL/6J, FVB/J, and 129/SvJ strains. In (AKRxC57L)F1 mice, the cholesterol absorption efficiency (31 +/- 6%) mimicked that of the C57L parent (37 +/- 5%) and was significantly higher than in AKR mice (24 +/- 4%). Although biliary bile salt compositions and small intestinal transit times were similar, C57L mice displayed significantly greater bile salt secretion rates and pool sizes than AKR mice. In examining lymphatic cholesterol transport in the setting of a chronic biliary fistula, C57L mice displayed significantly higher cholesterol absorption rates compared with AKR mice. Because biliary and intestinal transit factors were accounted for, we conclude that genetic variations at the enterocyte level determine differences in murine cholesterol absorption efficiency, with high cholesterol absorption likely to be a dominant trait. This study provides baseline information for identifying candidate genes that regulate intestinal cholesterol absorption at the cellular level.  (+info)

Biliary-bronchial fistula demonstrated by endoscopic retrograde cholangiography. (4/165)

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography is valuable in the evaluation of biliary tract disorders. A 50-year-old Italian woman developed biloptysis 1 year after cholecystectomy because of intrabiliary rupture of a hydatid cyst with secondary infection, which resulted in intrathoracic rupture and communication with the bronchial tree. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography showed the cause and pathway of the fistulous tract by outlining the biliary tree, abscess cavity and communication with the right upper lobe bronchus. This technique appears to be well suited to the investigation of patients with biliary-bronchial fistula.  (+info)

External biliary fistula. (5/165)

External biliary fistulas, once common, are now rare: before the present report of 4 cases only 27 cases have been reported in the English literature since 1900. Review of the records of four patients with external biliary fistula confirmed its occurrence in patients over 50 years of age and the variable site for operning of the fistulous tract. Cholecystectomy provided successful treatment in three of the four patients but the fourth was too ill to undergo an operation; in general, definitive treatment is cholecystectomy, together with excision of the fistulous tract if this takes a direct path through the abdominal wall from the gallbladder, or curettage if the course is devious.  (+info)

Percutaneous evacuation (PEVAC) of multivesicular echinococcal cysts with or without cystobiliary fistulas which contain non-drainable material: first results of a modified PAIR method. (6/165)

BACKGROUND: Surgery is the treatment of choice in echinococcal cysts with cystobiliary fistulas. PAIR (puncture, aspiration, injection, and reaspiration of scolecidals) is contraindicated in these cases. AIM: To evaluate a modified PAIR method for percutaneous treatment of multivesicular echinococcal cysts with or without cystobiliary fistulas which contain non-drainable material. PATIENTS: Twelve patients were treated: 10 patients with multivesicular cysts which contained non-drainable material and were complicated by spontaneous intrabiliary rupture, secondary cystobiliary fistulas, cyst infection, or obstructed portal or hepatic veins; and two patients with large univesicular cysts and a ruptured laminated membrane, one obstructing the portal and hepatic veins and one a suspected cystobiliary fistula. METHODS: The methods used, termed PEVAC (percutaneous evacuation of cyst content), involved the following steps: ultrasound guided cyst puncture and aspiration of cyst fluid to release intracystic pressure and thereby to avoid leakage; insertion of a large bore catheter; aspiration and evacuation of daughter cysts and endocyst by injection and reaspiration of isotonic saline; cystography; injection of scolecidals only if no cystobiliary fistula was present; external drainage of cystobiliary fistulas combined with endoprosthesis or sphincterotomy; catheter removal after complete cyst collapse and closure of the cystobiliary fistula. RESULTS: In all 12 patients initial cyst size was 13.1 (6-20) cm (mean (range)). At follow up 17.9 (4-30) months after PEVAC, seven cysts had disappeared and five cysts had decreased to 2.4 (1-4) cm (p=0.002). In eight patients with multivesicular cysts, a cystobiliary fistula, and infection, cyst size was 12.5 (6-20) cm, catheter time 72.3 (28-128) days, and hospital stay 38.1 (20-55) days. At 17.3 (4-28) months of follow up, six cysts had disappeared and in two cysts residual size was 1 and 2.9 cm, respectively (p=0.012). In four patients without a cystobiliary fistula, cyst size was 14.4 (12.7-16) cm, catheter time 8.8 (3-13) days, and hospital stay 11.5 (8-14) days. At 19.3 (9-30) months of follow up, one cyst had disappeared and three cysts were 85 (69-94)% smaller (2.2 (1-4) cm) (p=0.068). CONCLUSION: PEVAC is a safe and effective method for percutaneous treatment of multivesicular echinococcal cysts with or without cystobiliary fistulas which contain non-drainable material.  (+info)

Regulation of hepatic connexins in cholestasis: possible involvement of Kupffer cells and inflammatory mediators. (7/165)

Hepatocyte gap junction proteins, connexins (Cxs) 26 and 32, are downregulated during obstructive cholestasis (OC) and lipopolysaccharide hepatocellular cholestasis (LPS-HC). We investigated rat hepatic Cxs during ethynylestradiol hepatocellular cholestasis (EE-HC) and choledochocaval fistula (CCF) and compared them with OC and LPS-HC. Levels (immunoblotting) and cellular distribution (immunofluorescence) of Cx26, -32, and -43, as well as macrophage infiltration, were studied in livers of rats under each condition. Cx26 and -32 were reduced in LPS-HC, OC, and CCF. However, in EE-HC, Cx26 did not change and Cx32 was increased. Prominent inflammation occurred in LPS-HC, OC, and CCF, which was associated with increased levels of Cx43 in LPS-HC and OC but not CCF. No inflammation nor changes in Cx43 levels occurred during EE-HC. In cultured hepatocytes, dye coupling was reduced by tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interleukins-1beta and -6, whereas reduction induced by LPS required coculture with Kupffer cells. Thus hepatocyte gap junctions are downregulated in forms of cholestasis associated with inflammation, and reduced intercellular communication might be induced in part by proinflammatory mediators.  (+info)

Sirolimus/cyclosporine/tacrolimus interactions on bile flow and biliary excretion of immunosuppressants in a subchronic bile fistula rat model. (8/165)

The new immunosuppressive agent sirolimus generally is combined in transplant patients with cyclosporine and tacrolimus which both exhibit cholestatic effects. Nothing is known about possible cholestatic effects of these combinations which might be important for biliary excretion of endogenous compounds as well as of immunosuppressants. Rats were daily treated with sirolimus (1 mg kg(-1) p.o.), cyclosporine (10 mg kg(-1) i.p.), tacrolimus (1 mg kg(-1) i.p.), or a combination of sirolimus with cyclosporine or tacrolimus. After 14 days a bile fistula was installed to investigate the effects of the immunosuppressants and their combinations on bile flow and on biliary excretion of bile salts, cholesterol, and immunosuppressants. Cyclosporine as well as tacrolimus reduced bile flow (-22%; -18%), biliary excretion of bile salts (-15%;-36%) and cholesterol (-15%; -47%). Sirolimus decreased bile flow by 10%, but had no effect on cholesterol or bile salt excretion. Combination of sirolimus/cyclosporine decreased bile flow and biliary bile salt excretion to the same extent as cyclosporine alone, but led to a 2 fold increase of biliary cholesterol excretion. Combination of sirolimus/tacrolimus reduced bile flow only by 7.5% and did not change biliary bile salt and cholesterol excretion. Sirolimus enhanced blood concentrations of cyclosporine (+40%) and tacrolimus (+57%). Sirolimus blood concentration was increased by cyclosporine (+400%), but was not affected by tacrolimus. We conclude that a combination of sirolimus/tacrolimus could be the better alternative to the cotreatment of sirolimus/cyclosporine in cholestatic patients and in those facing difficulties in reaching therapeutic ranges of sirolimus blood concentration.  (+info)

The presence of a renal bile fistula with escape of all bile into the urinary tract seriously impairs the capacity of an anemic dog to form new hemoglobin on standard diets. These bile fistula dogs will produce about one-half as much hemoglobin in anemia on standard diets as during earlier control periods without a bile fistula. Iron given by mouth to an anemic bile fistula dog will effect the production of about one-half the amount of new hemoglobin as in control periods. Iron given by vein to an anemic bile fistula dog will approximate the theoretical 100 per cent return of new hemoglobin. Obviously absorption is a very important factor in the utilization of iron by these dogs. The reaction to liver feeding is much like the reaction to iron feeding but we have no proof of inadequate protein digestion and absorption in these bile fistula dogs. In fact the uniform body weight and normal clinical state over periods of years speak for adequate absorption of protein digestion products. Evidence ...
Bronchobiliary fistula (BBF) is a rare complication after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) for hepatocellular carcinoma. We present a case of BBF that developed 5 months after 11 TACE procedures in a 78-year-old male patient with a 3-month history of a persistent cough and yellowish sputum. BBF was found between the bronchus and the right intrahepatic bile duct (B7) by magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography. On the initial endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), we failed to approach to the BBF due to severe hilar obstruction. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) was performed, and 30-50 mL of bile was drained daily. But the BBF was not resolved until 2 months after PTBD. The patient was treated by placement of a plastic stent to the BBF site during the second ERCP. BBF was resolved 7 days after ERCP on the PTBD tubogram. The patient remained asymptomatic after the stent placement, and there was no recurrence at the 2-month follow-up ERCP ...

Both acute and chronic cholecystitis share a set of potential complications. Gallbladder perforation or rupture usually results in a local abdominal abscess as the omentum limits spread of the gallbladder luminal contents. In some cases severe rupture can yield diffuse peritonitis. Cholangitis may result as static bile is prone to infection. Cholecystoenteric fistulas can form between the gallbladder and the adjacent GI tract, usually the duodenum. In some cases, gallstones can migrate into the alimentary tract which may result in bowel obstruction, termed Gallstone Ileus ...

We report a case of cholecysto-colonic fistula in a female patient, due to bile duct lithiasis. Cholelithiasis is the most common cause of fistula (in more than 90% of the cases) [1]. Cholelithiasis could cause either repeated episodes of acute cholecystitis/cholangitis or asymptomatic chronic calculous cholecystitis [1]. The chronological events that lead to the fistula include gallbladder inflammation, adhesions between intestines and gallbladder, mechanical erosion by gallstones and gangrenous changes of both the gallbladder and the adjacent colon wall.. Enterobiliary fistulae most commonly result from calculus cholecystitis, but can also occur occasionally following carcinoma of the gallbladder where the necrotic tumour perforates into the adjacent duodenum or colon, or both [2]. Due to its proximity, the duodenum is the most common site of intestines involved.. Biliary ileus is defined as a mechanical intestinal obstruction due to a gallstone lodging in the intestinal lumen. The usual means ...
Can patients with type 3 cysts be treated safely with percutaneous drainage? Faced with serious complications such as bile duct obstruction, cholangitis, rupture of cyst content into the biliary tree, sepsis due to cyst infection, and obstruction of portal and hepatic veins, we modified the PAIR procedure in these patients. After puncture and aspiration, the cyst content is evacuated via a 8-18 F catheter by frequent injection and reaspiration of small amounts of isotonic saline (20-40 ml) using a 60 ml syringe. The daughter cysts readily rupture when aspirated into the catheter. Puncture of each single daughter cyst is not necessary. We avoid injection of alcohol into the mother cyst because of the high occurrence of a cystobiliary fistula. Six of the 10 patients with type 3 cysts that we treated in this way had a cystobiliary fistula. In three the fistula was present before percutaneous aspiration was initiated. In the other three patients the fistula became apparent only after the procedure ...

The main treatment modality for Bouverets syndrome is surgery, especially when percutaneous or endoscopic approaches are not an option or have failed [53]. The most common surgical options for extracting the stone are enterolithotomy and gastrotomy [16, 54]. Small bowel obstruction should be managed by enterolithotomy with longitudinal antimesenteric incision. A transverse closure of the enterolithotomy site is recommended to avoid stenosis [27, 28]. Resection is required for parts of the small bowel that have become irreversibly damaged [54, 55]. Surgical removal of the stone can be carried out with or without a simultaneous (one stage procedure) or subsequent cholecystectomy and fistula repair (two stage procedure) [15-17, 27, 28]. Cholecystectomy is indicated for retained gallstones in the gallbladder to prevent recurrence and complications [10, 54]. Laparoscopic techniques should be considered for surgical treatment whenever possible to minimize the physiological trauma. However, higher ...
Saied Froghi, Mr1, Andy Williams, Dr1, Tammy Lo, Miss2, Catherine King, Dr1, Jonathan Van Dellan, Mr1, Simon Monkhouse, Mr1. 1East Surrey Hospital, 2Bedford Hospital NHS Trust. Management of gallstone ileus has historically been through open incisions. However, with the advance of laparoscopic techniques the trend is more skewed towards minimally invasive approach. Here we describe a case of gallstone ileus that was managed totally laparoscopically with good patient outcomes. A seventy-seven years old lady presented with small bowel obstruction secondary to a large gallstone, detected on CT scan. Patient underwent a totally laparoscopic approach with minimal number of port insertion to retrieve the stone. Post operatively patient did not have any complications.

A 48 year old man presents with worsening pain in the upper abdomen for 1 week, in a background of yellowish discoloration of the eyes and intermittent dark urine for 2 months. Close questioning reveals no history of similar episodes in the past, or of other medical or surgical diseases. However, he confesses that he postponed seeking medical attention until now, as he was scared that he might have a serious illness. He has never smoked, and only drinks socially. There is no history of sexual promiscuity, blood transfusions, or intravenous drug abuse. A complete blood count is only significant for a leukocytosis of 11,000/mm3. A renal profile is within normal parameters, as are serum amylase and lipase levels ...

Liver cysts are rare, bubble-like defects in the liver tissue. They are usually non-cancerous and require no treatment, unless they are large.
In small low anal fistulas, first excise the fistula tract followed by application of Kshara and wait for 2 minutes. Later neutralize with Lemon juice and pack with Yastimadhu Taila. It is helpful for quick healing and avoids recurrence of fistula tract.. In high level fistulas, excision of fistulous tract was done partially followed by application of Kshara. Later Kshara Sutra is applied in remaining fistulous tract at anal sphincteric area. The excised fistulous tract heals completely with help of Kshara and remaining fistulous tract was cut by Kshara Sutra ligation. So that patient can be cured at less time and pain.. In this technique, after excision of fistulous tract and applying Kshara, leads to debridement of the fibrous tissue and at the same time remaining wound will be healed by its Scraping and Healing property of Kshara. In the mean time the Kshara sutra ligation at sphincteric area of fistulous tract leads to cutting and debridement and drainage of fistulous tract at the same time ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hepatic trauma. T2 - Contemporary management. AU - Trunkey, Donald. PY - 2004/4. Y1 - 2004/4. N2 - In the introduction, I posed several questions that were issues/controversies. The answers will probably be interpreted as equally controversial. I do not believe there is strong evidence that the incidence of liver injuries has increased. Diagnostic modalities have contributed to this seeming increase, as well as population increases and the concentration of severe liver injuries in trauma centers, now present in 35 states. I believe there are more blunt injuries now, relative to penetrating injuries. The peak of penetrating injuries occurred in the 1970s and 1980s and lasted almost 2 decades. I believe some authors are overly enthusiastic for nonoperative management. I am particularly critical of authors who do not include all components of the surgical armamentarium into their treatment of severe liver injuries. I also believe that the complications following nonoperative ...

I saw my doctor on Tuesday (five days post-op). I was asked to read the eye chart and I could barely read anything more than the first two or three lines. (This was strange because I could see fairly well but it was not manifesting on the eye chart). My doctor then examined my eyes and said my left eye was still looking a bit rough but he removed my bandage lenses and I went home. Although I had read that your vision gets worse after the removal of the lenses, I didnt notice much of a change. I did have that slightly scratchy feeling others have written about ...
Results The authors identified 14 variants in CTRC, of which non-synonymous variants were detected in 71/584 CP patients (12.2%) and 22/598 controls (3.7%; OR 3.62, 95% CI 2.21 to 5.93; p=6.2×10−8). Rather than the commonly reported p.K247_R254del variant in Caucasians, p.V235I was the most common mutation in Indian CP patients (28/575 (4.9%); OR 7.60, 95% CI 2.52 to 25.71; p=1.01×10−5). Another pathogenic variant, p.A73T was identified in 3.1% (18/584) patients compared with 0.3% (2/598) in controls (OR=9.48, 95% CI 2.19 to 41.03, p=2.5×10−4). The authors also observed significant association for the synonymous variant c.180C,T (p.(=)) with CP (OR 2.71, 95% CI 1.79 to 4.12, p=5.3×10−7). Two novel nonsense mutations, p.G242AfsX9 and p.W113X were also identified exclusively in CP patients. No interaction between CTRC variants and p.N34S SPINK1 or p.L26V CTSB mutations was observed.. ...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we examined the mutational spectrum of K-ras in cases of gallbladder and gallbladder carcinoma with an anomalous junction of the pancreaticobiliary duct (AJPBD). METHODS: We examined 35 gallbladders with AJPBD (20 with hyperplasia, 15 with carcinoma) and 38 gallbladders without AJPBD (lour normal gallbladders, four with hyperplasia, six with adenoma, 24 with carcinoma). Polymerase chain reaction single-strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) and direct sequencing were performed to detect mutations in codon 12 or 13 of K-ras. RESULTS: In the eases with AJPBD, the prevalences of K-ras imitation were 15% (3/20) in hyperplasia, 60% (6/10) in stage I carcinoma, and 100% (5/5) in stage II-IV carcinoma. In the eases without AJPBD, the prevalences of K-ras mutation were 0% (0/4) in normal gallbladder, 0% (0/4) in hyperplasia, 17% (1/6) in adenoma, 7% (1/16) in stage I carcinoma, and 38% (3/8) in stage II-IV carcinoma. Prevalences of K-ras mutation in hyperplasia and ...
Blood flow between the aorta and atrium is a rare but complex pathological condition, also known as aorto-atrial fistula (AAF). The exact incidence of this condition is unknown, as are the major precipitating factors and best treatment options. We carried out a systematic review of the available case report literature reporting AAF. We systematically reviewed literature on AAF formation and closure. Separate Medline (PubMed), EMBASE, and Cochrane database queries were performed. The following MESH headings were used: atrium, ventricle, fistula, cardiac, shunts, aortic, aorto-atrial tunnels and coronary cameral fistula. All papers were considered for analysis irrespective of their quality, or the journal in which they were published. Fistula formation from the ascending aorta to the atria occurred more often in the right atrium compared to the left. Endocarditis was the major cause of AAF formation, whilst congenital causes were responsible for nearly 12%. In a number of cases fistula formation ...

Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are synthetic and natural compounds that, when absorbed by an organism, can change the function of the endocrine system (Stuart, 2006). Researchers all over the world are studying the potentially harmful effects of these chemicals, particularly those effects on fish and amphibians. These effects include, reproductive, neurological, and immunologic dysfunction, among others (Harding et al. 2006).Research in our lab has focused on the reproductive effects of EDCs in aquatic habitats. Fish and amphibians are exposed to EDCs through their environment. To our knowledge, the concentrations of three specific EDCs-- atrazine, 17 α ethynylestradiol, and 17 β estradiol--have not been determined for the Pike River in Kenosha, WI. We hypothesize that surface waters in Lake Michigan will have higher levels of 17α ethynylestradiol and 17β estradiol. In agricultural areas, we hypothesize that atrazine will be detected in higher concentrations. Finally, we hypothesize ...
