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)

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 ...

Patients who fall into the "fair, fat, forty and fertile" category are also at increased risk. Alteration ...
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 ...

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..

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)..

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.

... Asia-Pacific Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangiography (PTC) Pancreatic and Biliary Stenting Procedures Outlook to - Market research report and industry analysis - 10970877
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 ...

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 ...

Aim: Acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) is caused by alteration of the papillary patency. The normal transpapillar flux and the cleaning of the common biliary duct (CBD) may prevent potentially avoidable recurrent pancreatitis. Patients and Methods: In the period September 1997/december 2008 we have treated 224 ABP (34 severe, 190 mild/moderate): 162 (72,4%) with the first attack, 62 (27,6%) with recurrent ABP (second or further attack). The patients with recurrent pancreatitis had not undergone, in the previous hospital stay elsewhere, the evaluation and, if necessary, the treatment of the papillary obstacle and /or CBD stones, sludge, etc. In ours hospital all patients had undergone complete treatment of ABP: intensive therapy, clinical: instrumental control of the papillary patency, then ERCP/ES(180-80%) within 72 hours from the onset in all SAP, in mild/moderate with signs of papillary lithiasic obstacle (US/MRCP confirmation), in all recurrent pancreatitis, and videolaparocholecystectomy. ...
In recent years, our knowledge about the pathogenesis, pathophysiology and treatment of hepatobiliary diseases has increased considerably. The molecular basis of cholestatic disorders as well as of gallstone disease is increasingly recognized. This has resulted in improved diagnosis, for instance in hereditary forms of intrahepatic cholestasis, and advances in treatment, for example in primary biliary cirrhosis and other chronic cholestatic disorders. This book, the proceedings of a Falk Workshop held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on June 9-10, 2000, brings together contributions from scientists and clinicians to highlight the most recent advances in molecular biology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the hepatobiliary system.

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. In this prospective study, we examined the cholangioscopic and histological findings ...
The prominent finding of this large retrospective study is the presence of marked intraparenchymal cholestasis on liver biopsy as an independent predictor of survival, along with age and the Maddreys score. Among other histological lesions commonly observed in ASH[20] bilirubinostasis was also the sole predictor of outcome. Interpretation of intrahepatic cholestasis is especially challenging in patients with decompensated cirrhosis at risk of developing biliary tract disease, infection or sepsis. In the latter situation, intrahepatic cholestasis is a prominent finding[13]. Having reasonably excluded the role of bile duct lesions or concomitant sepsis with the complete work-up performed at admission, intraparenchymal cholestasis can be considered as a lesion associated with ASH, as previously suggested[21]. Our results are in line with the study by Nissenbaum et al.[9] who reported lobular cholestasis in 38% of patients that correlated to malnutrition and a poor clinical outcome. In a recent ...

The APEC trial is designed to provide an answer to a persisting clinical dilemma: whether or not to routinely perform early ERC with sphincterotomy in patients with biliary pancreatitis at high risk for complications but without concurrent cholangitis. Guidelines clearly advise urgent ERC with sphincterotomy in patients with concomitant cholangitis and discard this intervention in patients with a predicted mild disease course. A recent Cochrane meta-analysis comparing routine ERC versus conservative treatment found no difference in complications and death in patients with pancreatitis at high risk for complications [8]. However, besides some notable limitations in the design of the studies included, the pooled sample size of patients with biliary pancreatitis who were at high risk for complications without concurrent cholangitis was too small to detect a difference in effect. As long as the precise role remains unclear of early ERC in biliary pancreatitis in patients at high risk for ...

Background The population in northeast Thailand continues to present with hepatobiliary abnormalities, particularly periductal fibrosis (PDF) which is the result of chronic infection with liver fluke (Opisthorchis viverini; OV) and may lead to the development of cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). Although the prevalence of OV infection has been decreased due to a liver fluke control program over decades, the prevalence of PDF remains high. This study aimed to investigate demographic factors associated with PDF risk based on ultrasonography (US) screening. Materials and Methods This cross-sectional study is part of the Cholangiocarcinoma Screening and Care Program (CASCAP), a prospective cohort study. Multiple logistic regression was used for data analysis. Results In 55,246 subjects, the overall prevalence of PDF was 33.0% (95%CI 32.6 - 33.4). Males (33.9 %) were at higher risk for developing PDF than females (32.2 %) (ORcrude 0.93; 95%CI 0.89 - 0.96; p-value | 0.001). Factors associated with an increased PDF

A team led by Alan Hemming, MD, transplant surgeon at UC San Diego Health System, has successfully performed the west coasts first ex-vivo liver resection, a radical procedure to completely remove and reconstruct a diseased liver and re-implant it without any tumors. The procedure saved the life of a 27-year old mother whose liver had been invaded by a painful tumor that crushed the organ and entangled its blood supply.. "During a 9-hour surgery the team was able to remove the basketball-sized tumor," said Hemming, professor and surgical director of the Center for Hepatobiliary Disease and Abdominal Transplantation (CHAT) at UC San Diego Health System. "This is a surgery that carries a 15 to 20 percent risk of mortality. In this case, the patient would not have survived if she did not have surgery. This was the only way we could save her liver and her life.". During the procedure, the diseased liver was detached from the body, flushed with preservation solution and cooled to a temperature of 4 ...

Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a potentially fatal disease. In animal experiments leptin and ghrelin were shown to modulate the course of AP. The aim of the study was to estimate the relationship between the severity of acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) and serum levels of leptin and ghrelin in nonobese patients in the first seven days of the hospitalization. Material and methods. The study included nine patients with mild ABP (MABP), eleven patients with severe ABP (SABP) and twenty healthy controls, appropriately matched age, sex and weight. Serum concentrations of leptin and ghrelin were measured in patients on the first, third, fifth, and seventh days of hospitalization using leptin and ghrelin RadioImmunoAssay (RIA) kits. Results. At admission and throughout the study the mean serum leptin concentration in SABP patients was higher than in the controls but without statistical significance. Serum ghrelin concentrations on admission were significantly lower in patients with ABP than in the ...

Use of postdiagnosis aspirin was defined as one or more prescription at or after biliary tract cancer diagnosis or receipt of an aspirin prescription within 30 days of diagnosis.. Analysis was adjusted for age at diagnosis, sex, comorbidities, statin use at diagnosis, indicators of a healthy lifestyle, and year of diagnosis. Among the 2,934 patients, 667 (23%) had gallbladder cancer, 1,159 (53%) had cholangiocarcinoma, 224 (8%) had ampulla of Vater cancer, and 484 (16%) had overlapping biliary tract cancer lesions.. Results. Death occurred in a total of 2,415 patients (82%), with a reported median overall survival of 5.8 months. In total, 256 patients (9%) were aspirin users at baseline, and an additional 349 (12%) initiated aspirin use after diagnosis; 96% of aspirin users were prescribed a ...
The biliary tract, (biliary tree or biliary system) refers to the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts, and how they work together to make, store and secrete bile. Bile consists of water, electrolytes, bile acids, cholesterol, phospholipids and conjugated bilirubin. Some components are synthesised by hepatocytes (liver cells), the rest are extracted from the blood by the liver. Bile is secreted by the liver into small ducts that join to form the common hepatic duct. Between meals, secreted bile is stored in the gall bladder. During a meal, the bile is secreted into the duodenum to rid the body of waste stored in the bile as well as aid in the absorption of dietary fats and oils. The biliary tract refers to the path by which bile is secreted by the liver then transported to the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. A structure common to most members of the mammal family, the biliary tract is often referred to as a tree because it begins with many small branches which end in the common ...

p16Ink4 and p15Ink4B are cyclin-dependent kinase 4 inhibitors and link to the regulation of cell cycle in mammalian cells. The genes encoding these inhibitors are located at 9p21, which is a frequent site of allelic loss in various types of tumors. Twenty-five primary biliary tract cancers were examined for somatic mutations in p16Ink4/CDKN2, p15Ink4B/MTS2, p53, and K-ras genes and allelic loss of 9p21 by microsatellite analysis. Four biliary tract cancer cell lines were analyzed for homozygous deletions and point mutations. We found frequent homozygous deletions in p16Ink4/CDKN2 and p15Ink4B/MTS2 genes in the biliary tract cancer cell lines. Each cancer cell line had alteration of either p16Ink4/CDKN2, p15Ink4B/MTS2, or p53 genes. In primary tumors, 16 of 25 (64%) biliary tract cancers had point mutations in the p16Ink4/CDKN2 gene. These include 14 missense and 2 silent mutations. The frequency of mutations in gall bladder cancer and hilar bile duct cancer were 80% (8 of 10) and 63% (5 of 8), ...
Background Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) are relatively rare neoplasms encompass both cholangiocarcinoma (CC). The role of routine lymphadenectomy at the time of surgical resection remains poorly defined. We sought to identify factors associated with outcome following and examine the impact of lymph node (LN) assessment on survival.. Methods 43 patients who underwent curative intent surgery between 2000-2010 were identified from a database. We calculated prognostic factors and impact lymph node (LN) assessment for survival.. Results A total of 43 patients were identified with no metastatic BTCs. The median age was 65 years (29-82 years); performance status of 0 in 33/43 (76%); PS1 in 8/43 (19%) and PS2 in 2/43 (5%) pts. A histological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma was confirmed in 100%. Surgical resection was performed in all patients. After resection 42% (18/43) had positive nodes.Adjuvant chemotherapy had 31/43(72%), preferred with gemcitabine and a median number of cycles 6. Grade 3 or 4 ...

Drugs used during pregnancy can adversely affect the health and life of the mother and unborn child. However, the fact that drugs are needed to mitigate complications during pregnancy cannot be avoided. The present study was designed to identify the common complications during pregnancy and assess the medications that have been used to mitigate those complications in an attempt to improve drug prescribing during pregnancy. A hospital based cross sectional study was conducted at Manipal Teaching Hospital, Nepal in 275 pregnant women presenting with at least one complication and the drugs prescribed for the management of those complications were analyzed. Majority of the patients in this study were in the age group 20-24 (44 %) and in the third trimester (53.8 %). Maximum patients complained pain (back, abdominal, lower abdominal, neck, pelvic) as primary complication (24.3 %) which was followed by nausea/vomiting, upper respiratory tract complications, acid reflux disease and others.

Methods. Biliary complications were reviewed in 20 consecutive ALDLT recipients surviving more than 1 month, including 10 patients who underwent R-Y HJ and 10 patients who underwent D-D HC reconstructions. Results. Ten biliary complications were seen in 8 patients (40%) from the study group. Specifically, 1 case of biliary leakage and 1 case of biliary hemorrhage were observed in ...
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a technique that combines the use of endoscopy and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat certain problems of the biliary or pancreatic ductal systems. Through the endoscope, the physician can see the inside of the stomach and duodenum, and inject a contrast medium into the ducts in the biliary tree and pancreas so they can be seen on radiographs. ERCP is used primarily to diagnose and treat conditions of the bile ducts and main pancreatic duct, including gallstones, inflammatory strictures (scars), leaks (from trauma and surgery), and cancer. ERCP can be performed for diagnostic and therapeutic reasons, although the development of safer and relatively non-invasive investigations such as magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and endoscopic ultrasound has meant that ERCP is now rarely performed without therapeutic intent. The following represent indications for ERCP, particularly if or when less invasive options are not adequate or ...
