Rational sequence of tests for pancreatic function. (1/513)

Of 144 patients with suspected pancreatic disease in whom a 75Se-selenomethionine scan was performed, endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) was successful in 108 (75%). The final diagnosis is known in 100 patients and has been compared with scan and ERP findings. A normal scan reliably indicated a normal pancreas, but the scan was falsely abnormal in 30%. ERP distinguished between carcinoma and chronic pancreatitis in 84% of cases but was falsely normal in five patients with pancreatic disease. In extrahepatic biliary disease both tests tended to give falsely abnormal results. A sequence of tests to provide a rapid and reliable assessment of pancreatic function should be a radio-isotope scan, followed by ERP if the results of the scan are abnormal, and a Lundh test if the scan is abnormal but the findings on ERP are normal.  (+info)

Spontaneous perforation of common bile duct in infants. (2/513)

Two infants with spontaneous perforation of the common bile duct are described. One presented with mild jaundice, dark urine, acholic stools, and hydroceles, the other with bilateral inguinal hernia. In both the diagnosis was unsuspected until bile-stained ascites was discovered. Both eventually developed bile-staining of the scrotum. Neither was acutely ill. The 131I-Rose Bengal faecal excretion test showed reduced faecal excretion at 8% and 12% of the injected dose with 16-5 and 17%/dl of the dose being recovered in the ascitic fluid 48 hours after intravenous injection. The ascitic:plasma ratio of isotope at that time was 32:1 and 28:1. Operative cholangiography in both showed a perforation at the junction of the cystic duct and common bile duct with no contrast entering the duodenum. Cholecystenterostomy using a Roux-en-Y loop of jejunum produced a rapid sustained recovery and is suggested as the treatment of choice. This condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis of obstructive jaundice in infancy since early surgical correction is necessary.  (+info)

Idiopathic bile acid catharsis. (3/513)

In the course of extensive routine screening for bile acid malabsorption a few patients were detected in whom chronic diarrhoea was apparently induced by excess bile acid loss which was neither associated with demonstrable conventional ileopathy nor with any other disorder allied to diarrhoea. In three patients subjected to scrutiny the results obtained were in harmony with a concept of idiopathic bile acid catharsis. Ingestion of cholestyramine was followed by immediate relief, but the diarrhoea recurred whenever this treatment was withdrawn. It it suggested that idiopathic bile acid catharsis should be suspected in patients with unexplained chronic diarrhoea and especially in those with a diagnosis of irritable colon with diarrhoea.  (+info)

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in an academic hospital: evaluation of changes in perioperative outcomes. (4/513)

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate changes in perioperative outcomes over an 82-month period in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy by a single attending surgeon in an academic hospital. METHODS: A retrospective review of 1025 consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy from September 1992 to February 1997 was compared to the initial 600 patients from May 1990 to August 1992. Statistical analysis included Chi square with Yates correction and Fischer's exact test. RESULTS: Over the 82-month period there were no significant differences in the overall conversion rate to open cholecystectomy (p=0.26), intraoperative complications (p = 0.81), postoperative complications (p = 0.054) or mortality rates (p=0.66). There were 3 (0.5%) bile duct injuries in the initial 600 patients and only 1 (0.1%) in the group of 1025 patients (p=0.065). There was an increase (p<0.001) in laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed for acute cholecystitis and biliary dyskinesia and an increase (p<0.001) in the percentage of cases performed overall and for acute cholecystitis by the surgery residents over the last 54 months. Despite this, the conversion rates to open cholecystectomy in patients with acute cholecystitis decreased (p < 0.001) over the last 54 months. Additionally, more patients (p < 0.001) were discharged on the day of surgery in the most recent group. CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be performed safely by surgery residents under the direct supervision of an experienced laparoscopist without significant changes in perioperative outcomes. Despite an increased percentage of cases being performed for acute cholecystitis over the last 54 months, conversion rates to open cholecystectomy and biliary tract injury rates have decreased, and the perioperative morbidity has remained the same.  (+info)

Implications of laparoscopic cholecystectomy for surgical residency training. (5/513)

BACKGROUND: Widespread adoption of minimal access techniques forced a generation of abdominal surgeons to re-learn many standard abdominal procedures. This threatened to reduce the pool of suitable "training" operations for surgical residents. METHODS: Operator grade, duration of operation, acute/elective operation, conversion rate, complications, and postoperative stay were recorded prospectively on all laparoscopic cholecystectomies (LC) since 1992. This data was evaluated to determine how the introduction of LC affected residents' training. RESULTS: The percentage of LCs performed by residents increased progressively to reach 58%. Operating time was longer for trainee surgeons, particularly for acute cases (145+/-50 minutes vs 111+/-54 minutes, p<0.05); however, conversion rate, incidence of complications, and postoperative stay were no different. CONCLUSIONS: LC can be performed by surgical trainees with similar complication rates and outcomes as those of qualified surgeons. Once institutional experience has accumulated, this procedure can be integrated into residency training.  (+info)

A prospective study of the causes of notably raised aspartate aminotransferase of liver origin. (6/513)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: To ascertain the causes of raised aspartate aminotransferase (AST) presumed to be of hepatic origin in two hospitals and the local community served by a centralised biochemistry laboratory. METHODS: From June 1996 to February 1997 all patients with AST greater than 400 U/l were identified by the biochemistry laboratory; the patients' clinical records were studied to determine the diagnosis, the clinical outcome, and whether the raised AST and its significance had been noted. RESULTS: A total of 137 patients with a hepatic cause for the raised AST were found. The cause of the raised AST was hepatic ischaemia/hypoxia in 68, pancreatobiliary disease in 33, primary hepatocellular disease in 23, hepatic malignancy in five, and hepatic haematoma in one. In seven patients the diagnosis was unclear. The overall mortality was high (22%) with the highest mortality in the hepatic ischaemia group (37%). The recording and interpretation of the causes of raised AST was poor with only 48% having the correct diagnosis. In 38% the raised AST was apparently not noticed by the attending clinicians. CONCLUSIONS: The commonest cause of a hepatitis like biochemical picture was hepatic hypoxia (50%) followed by pancreatobiliary disease (24%). Drug induced hepatic necrosis (8.8%) was uncommon and viral hepatitis was rare (3.6%). AST concentrations returned towards normal most rapidly in patients with hepatic hypoxia and calculous biliary obstruction. Hepatitis, viral or otherwise, is an uncommon cause of a typical hepatitic biochemical result in this community.  (+info)

Screening of newborn infants for cholestatic hepatobiliary disease with tandem mass spectrometry. (7/513)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of screening for cholestatic hepatobiliary disease and extrahepatic biliary atresia by using tandem mass spectrometry to measure conjugated bile acids in dried blood spots obtained from newborn infants at 7-10 days of age for the Guthrie test. SETTING: Three tertiary referral clinics and regional neonatal screening laboratories. DESIGN: Unused blood spots from the Guthrie test were retrieved for infants presenting with cholestatic hepatobiliary disease and from the two cards stored on either side of each card from an index child. Concentrations of conjugated bile acids measured by tandem mass spectrometry in the two groups were compared. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Concentrations of glycodihydroxycholanoates, glycotrihydroxycholanoates, taurodihydroxycholanoates, and taurotrihydroxycholanoates. Receiver operator curves were plotted to determine which parameter (or combination of parameters) would best predict the cases of cholestatic hepatobiliary disease and extrahepatic biliary atresia. The sensitivity and specificity at a selection of cut off values for each bile acid species and for total bile acid concentrations for the detection of the two conditions were calculated. RESULTS: 218 children with cholestatic hepatobiliary disease were eligible for inclusion in the study. Two children without a final diagnosis and five who presented at <14 days of age were excluded. Usable blood spots were obtained from 177 index children and 708 comparison children. Mean concentrations of all four bile acid species were significantly raised in children with cholestatic hepatobiliary disease and extrahepatic biliary atresia compared with the unaffected children (P<0.0001). Of 177 children with cholestatic hepatobiliary disease, 104 (59%) had a total bile acid concentration >33 micromol/l (97.5th centile value for comparison group). Of the 61 with extrahepatic biliary atresia, 47 (77%) had total bile acid concentrations >33 micromol/l. Taurotrihydroxycholanoate and total bile acid concentrations were the best predictors of both conditions. For all cholestatic hepatobiliary disease, a cut off level of total bile acid concentration of 30 micromol/l gave a sensitivity of 62% and a specificity of 96%, while the corresponding values for extrahepatic biliary atresia were 79% and 96%. CONCLUSION: Most children who present with extrahepatic biliary atresia and other forms of cholestatic hepatobiliary disease have significantly raised concentrations of conjugated bile acids as measured by tandem mass spectrometry at the time when samples are taken for the Guthrie test. Unfortunately the separation between the concentrations in these infants and those in the general population is not sufficient to make mass screening for cholestatic hepatobiliary disease a feasible option with this method alone.  (+info)

Functional disorders of the biliary tract and pancreas. (8/513)

The term "dysfunction" defines the motor disorders of the gall bladder and the sphincter of Oddi (SO) without note of the potential etiologic factors for the difficulty to differentiate purely functional alterations from subtle structural changes. Dysfunction of the gall bladder and/or SO produces similar patterns of biliopancreatic pain and SO dysfunction may occur in the presence of the gall bladder. The symptom-based diagnostic criteria of gall bladder and SO dysfunction are episodes of severe steady pain located in the epigastrium and right upper abdominal quadrant which last at least 30 minutes. Gall bladder and SO dysfunctions can cause significant clinical symptoms but do not explain many instances of biliopancreatic type of pain. The syndrome of functional abdominal pain should be differentiated from gall bladder and SO dysfunction. In the diagnostic workup, invasive investigations should be performed only in the presence of compelling clinical evidence and after non-invasive testing has yielded negative findings. Gall bladder dysfunction is suspected when laboratory, ultrasonographic, and microscopic bile examination have excluded the presence of gallstones and other structural abnormalities. The finding of decreased gall bladder emptying at cholecystokinin-cholescintigraphy is the only objective characteristic of gall bladder dysfunction. Symptomatic manifestation of SO dysfunction may be accompanied by features of biliary obstruction (biliary-type SO dysfunction) or significant elevation of pancreatic enzymes and pancreatitis (pancreatic-type SO dysfunction). Biliary-type SO dysfunction occurs more frequently in postcholecystectomy patients who are categorized into three types. Types I and II, but not type III, have biochemical and cholangiographic features of biliary obstruction. Pancreatic-type SO dysfunction is less well classified into types. When non-invasive investigations and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopanreatography show no structural abnormality, manometry of both biliary and pancreatic sphincter may be considered.  (+info)

Semantic Scholar extracted view of D-glucitol in the treatment of biliary tract disease; preliminary observations. by N W CHAIKIN
We have reported a case series and a large disease association study including over 23,000 patients with ADPKD. Our case series findings suggested that biliary tract disease is as frequent in people with ADPKD as serious liver complications and that it has a distinct clinical presentation and sex distribution. Our disease association study confirmed that hospitalization for biliary tract disease is more common among people with ADPKD than people without and that the absolute excess risk was larger than for serious liver complications and a range of other better described extrarenal manifestations of ADPKD.. The Halt Progression of Polycystic Kidney Disease Study A (HALT-PKD-A) has characterized the biliary tract and liver imaging features of ADPKD.23 Common bile duct dilation was present in 17% of the cohort, but it was the only biliary tract abnormality described. These data corroborate earlier observations from a Japanese study of 55 people with ADPKD, where the prevalence of common bile duct ...

OBJECTIVE: There is limited prospective evidence on the association of physical activity with hepatobiliary cancer subtypes and other major hepatobiliary diseases, especially in China. We aimed to quantify the associations with risk of these diseases. METHODS: The study population involved 460 937 participants of the prospective China Kadoorie Biobank aged 30-79 years from 10 diverse areas in China without history of cancer or hepatobiliary disease at baseline. Cox regression was used to estimate adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) for each disease associated with self-reported total and domain-specific physical activity (occupational and non-occupational, ie, leisure time, household and commuting). RESULTS: During ~10 years of follow-up, 22 012 incident cases of hepatobiliary diseases were recorded. The overall mean (SD) total physical activity was 21.2 (13.9) metabolic equivalent of task (MET)-hours/day, with 62% from occupational activity. Total physical activity was inversely associated with hospitalised

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 ...

In illnesses without obstructions of the biliary tract, antibiotics penetrate the bile relatively well (3). During complete obstruction of the biliary duct, only cephalosporin of the 3rd generation-cefoperazon, is noted as having good penetration into the bile (4). The concentrations of cefoperazon in the bile and in tissues of the gallbladder are higher than of other cephalosporins and reach up to a hundred times those of serum concentrations (5, 6). Cefoperazon proved its worth in the treatment of biliary tract infections in the surgically ill (4, 7, 8). The dual method of excretion ensures safe administration even during light or moderate dysfunctions of the kidneys or liver (5 ...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic artery complications are feared complications after liver transplantation and may compromise the biliary tract, graft, and patient survival. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to compare risk of hepatic artery and biliary complications after liver transplantation in patients who underwent neoadjuvant transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) versus no TACE. METHODS: Comprehensive searches were performed in Embase, MEDLINE OvidSP, Web of Science, Google Scholar, and Cochrane databases to identify studies concerning hepatocellular cancer patients undergoing preliver transplantation TACE. Quality assessment of studies was done by the validated checklist of Downs and Black. Meta-analyses were performed to evaluate the incidence of all hepatic artery complications, hepatic artery thrombosis, and biliary tract complications, using binary random-effect models. RESULTS: Fourteen retrospective studies, representing 1122 TACE patients, met the inclusion criteria.

Damage of the biliary tract at the end of a period of hepatic preservation prior to liver transplantation has been observed in man. This damage may be important in the development of early biliary complications. A model of hepatic biliary ischaemia in the pig has been developed which permits comparison between the influences of warm and cold ischaemic damage on the biliary tract. The major damage to the biliary tract in the pig in this model appears to occur after prolonged cold preservation.
The diagnosis of acute or chronic disease of the pancreas can be one of the more difficult tasks of the internist or gastroenterologist. Acute pancreatic disease must be differentiated from a variety of intra-abdominal catastrophes, many of which require prompt laparotomy if the patient is to have the best chance of survival. Most surgeons and physicians agree that acute pancreatitis, in the absence of complicating biliary tract disease, is best managed conservatively (1). Chronic pancreatitis often masquerades as psychoneurosis, drug addiction, or chronic alcoholism, while pancreatic carcinoma is usually beyond surgical cure when diagnosed.. Three reports concerned with various aspects ...

At the Tufts Foster Hospital for Small Animals at the Cummings School Veterinary Medicine, we rely heavily on a talented team of veterinary specialists to help treat small animals with hepatobiliary disease. Often times, diagnosing hepatobiliary disease is a complicated process given the livers wide-ranging role in digestion, intermediary metabolism and biotransformation. Additionally, the liver is sensitive to secondary injury from many systemic disorders as well.. The diagnosis of hepatobiliary disease often requires expert diagnostic imaging (ultrasound and scintigraphy) as well as histopathologic interpretation of hepatic biopsy material.. Tufts Foster Hospital for Small Animals is fortunate to have Dr. Dominque Penninck, one of the pioneers of hepatobiliary ultrasound, on staff. He is joined by pathologists, Dr. Sam Jennings, who trained with the world renowned veterinary hepatic pathologist Dr. John Cullen, and Dr. Arlen Rogers, whose research interests include animals models of hepatic ...

We have some questions on the conclusion in your Oseltamivir review especially about the prevention of complication (sic). You described that Oseltamivir 150 mg daily prevented lower respiratory tract complications (OR 0.32, 95% CI 0.18 to 0.57) in abstract.. However, we have found that this conclusion is based on the other review (Kaiser, 2003) and not on your own data analysis. The authors of the review were four employees of F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd, one paid consultant to F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd and Kaiser. We cannot find any raw data about this conclusion from your review.. Kaisers review included 10 RCTs; two RCTs (Nicholson, 2000 and T Treanor, 2000) were published as articles in the peer-reviewed medical journal (JAMA and Lancet), but other 8 RCTs were proceedings of congress (5 RCTs), abstracts of the congress (one RCT) and meeting (one RCT) and data on file, Hoffmann-La Roche, Inc, Nutley, NJ (one RCT).. [There was no significant difference in lower respiratory tract complication ...
The molecular pathogenesis of biliary tract cancers is poorly understood. By performing immunohistochemical analysis of more than 125 surgically resected cases of biliary tract carcinoma, we have previously shown altered cell cycle regulatory protein expression in biliary tact cancers [13]. Our current findings also show mutated expression of a large number of cell cycle regulators including UBD, BCL2L2, CDC2, MCM2, and CDKN1C in all subtypes. Similarly, Kang et al. [15] found that expression of G1-S modulators were commonly mutated in 42 cases of IHC. Total loss of p16, p27, and Rb were detected at rates of in 36%, 31%, 12%, respectively, in cancer specimens. Furthermore, in the above study, even in 7 of 13 cases of biliary dysplasia, without frank carcinoma, abnormal expression of p53, cyclin D1 or p16 was detected. Kim et al. [16] reported that the mutation of the p53, p16, and K-ras genes occurred at rates of 36%, 31% and 20%, respectively, in GBC. A further finding of the above study was ...

MRC is emerging as the latest imaging technology to evaluate the biliary tree. This noninvasive method is used to visualize these structures without using a contrast agent. Because the magnetic resonance images can be directly acquired in any plane, 3-dimensional representation of biliary tract anatomy and pathology can be accurately obtained. Patients receive no radiation exposure and unlike other imaging modalities, such as ultrasonography, ERCP, or percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, MRC does not rely on operator skill. The limitations of MRC include imaging artifact caused by metallic surgical clips and air in the biliary tree. Additionally, MRC does depend on technology that requires a multicoil device for better spatial resolution, which is currently not widely available (1). Should MRC be used in the routine diagnosis of biliary tract disease, and where does it fit in the diagnostic work-up? Although Soto and colleagues should be commended for their efforts, it is difficult to ...
Stents are used in the treatment of numerous biliary tract diseases, ranging from benign biliary diseases to malignant strictures. Two types of biliary stents find extensive use: plastic Amsterdam-type stents and self-expanding metallic stents. The more commonly used Amsterdam-type plastic stents are tubular structures with diameters ranging from 7 to 12 Fr. Further increase in the diameter of plastic stents is precluded by the working channel diameter of side-viewing endoscopes. The major limitation of these plastic stents is their limited patency (with an average time of failure of 82.7±5 days). The primary reason for failure is complete obstruction of bile flow due to occlusion by biofilm and biliary sludge.1 The obstruction rate was found to be 27% in the first 30 days of plastic stent deployment.2 The risk of occlusion increases progressively after 3 months with a median patency of 4-5 months.3 Nevertheless, plastic stents are widely used because of their low cost and their ease of removal ...

The major sources of amylase are the pancreas and the salivary glands. The most common cause of elevation of serum amylase is inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). In acute pancreatitis, serum amylase begins to rise within 6-24 hours, remains elevated for a few days and returns to normal in 3-7 days. Other causes of elevated serum amylase are inflammation of salivary glands (mumps), biliary tract disease and bowel obstruction. Elevated serum amylase can also be seen with drugs (e.g., morphine) which constrict the pancreatic duct sphincter preventing excretion of amylase into the intestine ...
