New perspectives on biliary atresia. (1/190)

An investigation into the aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment of biliary atresia was carried out because the prognosis remains so poor.In an electron microscopical study no viral particles or viral inclusion bodies were seen, nor were any specific ultrastructural features observed. An animal experiment suggested that obstruction within the biliary tract of newborn rabbits could be produced by maternal intravenous injection of the bile acid lithocholic acid.A simple and atraumatic method of diagnosis was developed using(99) (m)Tc-labelled compounds which are excreted into bile. Two compounds, (99m)Tc-pyridoxylidene glutamate ((99m)Tc-PG) and (99m)Tc-dihydrothioctic acid ((99m)Tc-DHT) were first assessed in normal piglets and piglets with complete biliary obstruction. Intestinal imaging correlated with biliary tract patency, and the same correlation was found in jaundiced human adults, in whom the (99m)Tc-PG scan correctly determined biliary patency in 21 out of 24 cases. The (99m)Tc-PG scan compared well with liver biopsy and (131)I-Rose Bengal in the diagnosis of 11 infants with prolonged jaundice.A model of extrahepatic biliary atresia was developed in the newborn piglet so that different methods of bile drainage could be assessed. Priorities in biliary atresia lie in a better understanding of the aetiology and early diagnosis rather than in devising new bile drainage procedures.  (+info)

Major HPB procedures must be undertaken in high volume quaternary centres? (2/190)

BACKGROUND: Reports of better results at national referral centers than at low-volume community hospitals have prompted calls for regionalizing pancreaticoduodenectomy (the Whipple procedure). We examined the relationship between hospital volume and mortality with this procedure across all US hospitals. METHODS: Using information from the Medicare claims database, we performed a national cohort study of 7,229 Medicare patients more than 65 years old undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy between 1992 and 1995. We divided the study population into approximate quartiles according to the hospital's average annual volume of pancreaticoduodenectomies in Medicare patients: very low (<1/y), low (1-2/y), medium (2-5/y), and high (5+/y). Using multivariate logistic regression to account for potentially confounding patient characteristics, we examined the association between institutional volume and in-hospital mortality, our primary outcome measure. RESULTS: More than 50% of Medicare patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy received care at hospitals performing fewer than 2 such procedures per year. In-hospital mortality rates at these low- and very-low-volume hospitals were 3- to 4-fold higher than at high-volume hospitals (12% and 16%, respectively, vs. 4%, P<.001). Within the high-volume quartile, the 10 hospitals with the nation's highest volumes had lower mortality rates than the remaining high-volume centers (2.1% vs. 6.2%, P<.01). The strong association between institutional volume and mortality could not be attributed to patient case-mix differences or referral bias. CONCLUSIONS: Although volume-outcome relationships have been reported for many complex surgical procedures, hospital experience is particularly important with pancreaticoduodenectomy. Patients considering this procedure should be given the option of care at a high-volume referral center.  (+info)

Ondansetron and droperidol in the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting. (3/190)

We have performed a prospective, randomized, double-blind clinical study to assess the efficacy of ondansetron, droperidol, or both, in preventing postoperative emesis. We studied 242 patients undergoing biliary or gynaecological surgery under general anaesthesia. Shortly before induction of anaesthesia, patients received: saline i.v. (group I, n = 62); droperidol 2.5 mg i.v. (group 2, n = 60); ondansetron 4 mg i.v. (group 3, n = 57); or droperidol 2.5 mg with ondansetron 4 mg i.v. (group 4, n = 63). Nausea occurred in 45%, 37%, 32% and 29% (P = 0.234) and vomiting in 23%, 17%, 9% and 5% (P = 0.016) of patients in groups 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively, during the first 24 h. Groups 2 and 4 had greater sedation scores than group 1 during the first 3 h (P < 0.01). We conclude that both droperidol and ondansetron showed a significant antiemetic effect, ondansetron was not significantly better than droperidol, and the combination of droperidol and ondansetron was better than droperidol but no better than ondansetron alone.  (+info)

Endoscopic management of biliary leaks after T-tube removal in liver transplant recipients: nasobiliary drainage versus biliary stenting. (5/190)

This study presents the long-term sequelae of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-managed biliary leakage in patients who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) and compares the relative efficacy, safety, and charges of nasobiliary drainage (NBD) versus biliary stenting (BS). We identified all orthotopic liver transplant recipients from January 1, 1993, to December 31, 1997, who had undergone ERCP for biliary leakage. Clinical outcome and charges were calculated on an intention-to-treat basis according to initial endoscopic therapy. Of the 1,166 adult OLTs performed during the study period, 442 patients underwent elective T-tube removal. ERCP was attempted in 69 patients (16%) who developed biliary leakage after T-tube removal. Three patients (5%) in whom initial ERCP was unsuccessful underwent surgery. NBD and BS were used as primary therapy in 45 (68%) and 21 patients (32%), respectively. Three patients initially treated with NBD required reendoscopy or surgery compared with 6 patients initially treated with BS (P <.05). Although not statistically significant, there was a trend toward greater expense in the BS group compared with the NBD group. ERCP is a safe and effective method of managing biliary leakage after T-tube removal in orthotopic liver transplant recipients. However, our results suggest NBD is the preferred method because recurrent leaks were more common in patients treated initially with BS. With prompt use of ERCP, surgery is rarely needed for this complication of OLT.  (+info)

Liver transplantation--1978. (6/190)

The development of liver transplantation has been made difficult because of the enormous technical difficulties of the procedure and because the postoperative management in early cases was defective in many instances. With surgical and medical improvements, the prospects for success have markedly increased recently. The wider use of thoracic duct fistula as an adjuvant measure during the first 1 or 2 postoperative months is being explored.  (+info)

Ezetimibe selectively inhibits intestinal cholesterol absorption in rodents in the presence and absence of exocrine pancreatic function. (7/190)

1. Ezetimibe potently inhibits the transport of cholesterol across the intestinal wall, thereby reducing plasma cholesterol in preclinical animal models of hypercholesterolemia. The effect of ezetimibe on known absorptive processes was determined in the present studies. 2. Experiments were conducted in the hamster and/or rat to determine whether ezetimibe would affect the absorption of molecules other than free cholesterol, namely cholesteryl ester, triglyceride, ethinylestradiol, progesterone, vitamins A and D, and taurocholic acid. In addition, to determine whether exocrine pancreatic function is involved in the mechanism of action of ezetimibe, a biliary anastomosis model, which eliminates exocrine pancreatic function from the intestine while maintaining bile flow, was established in the rat. 3. Ezetimibe reduced plasma cholesterol and hepatic cholesterol accumulation in cholesterol-fed hamsters with an ED(50) of 0.04 mg kg(-1). Utilizing cholesteryl esters labelled on either the cholesterol or the fatty acid moiety, we demonstrated that ezetimibe did not affect cholesteryl ester hydrolysis and the absorption of fatty acid thus generated in both hamsters and rats. The free cholesterol from this hydrolysis, however, was not absorbed (92 - 96% inhibition) in the presence of ezetimibe. Eliminating pancreatic function in rats abolished hydrolysis of cholesteryl esters, but did not affect the ability of ezetimibe to block absorption of free cholesterol (-94%). Ezetimibe did not affect the absorption of triglyceride, ethinylestradiol, progesterone, vitamins A and D, and taurocholic acid in rats. 4. Ezetimibe is a potent inhibitor of intestinal free cholesterol absorption that does not require exocrine pancreatic function for activity. Ezetimibe does not affect the absorption of triglyceride as a pancreatic lipase inhibitor (Orlistat) would, nor does it affect the absorption of vitamin A, D or taurocholate, as a bile acid sequestrant (cholestyramine) would.  (+info)

Hepatic artery angiography and embolization for hemobilia after hepatobiliary surgery. (8/190)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of hepatic angiography and embolization in the diagnosis and treatment of hemobilia after hepatobiliary surgery. METHODS: Nine patients had upper gastrointestinal bleeding 7 days to 3 months after surgery. They underwent emergency hepatic artery angiography and were treated by embolization using Gelfoam particles only (8 patients) and Gelfoam particles plus microcoils (1 patient). RESULTS: Hepatic artery angiography revealed hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms in 3 patients, diffuse hemorrhage of the hepatic artery branches in 3, right hepatic artery-bile duct fistulas in 2, and hepatic artery-small intestine fistula in 1. Hemobilia was controlled with embolization in 7 patients, of whom 1 had recurrent bleeding 1 day after treatment. During the follow-up, 3 patients died of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Two patients whose hemorrhage could not be controlled due to technical reasons died several days later. CONCLUSION: When hemobilia after hepatobiliary surgery is suspected, patients should receive hepatic angiography as a first diagnostic procedure and be treated with minimally invasive procedure of selective embolization of the involved artery as soon as possible.  (+info)

Recent observational studies on volume-outcome associations in hepatobiliary surgery were not designed to account for the varying extent of hepatobiliary resections and the consequential risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the risk-adjusted in-hospital mortality for minor and major hepatobiliary resections at the national level in Germany and to examine the effect of hospital volume on in-hospital mortality, and failure to rescue. All inpatient cases of hepatobiliary surgery (n = 31,114) in Germany from 2009 to 2015 were studied using national hospital discharge data. After ranking hospitals according to increasing hospital volumes, five volume categories were established based on all hepatobiliary resections. The association between hospital volume and in-hospital mortality following minor and major hepatobiliary resections was evaluated by multivariable regression methods. Minor hepatobiliary resections were associated with an overall mortality rate

When determining treatment options for tumors of the liver, the UMC hepatobiliary team reviews the results of ones pre-operative evaluation and overall health to recommend appropriate treatment options. Surgical resection involves the removal of one or more sections of the liver in which a tumor(s) exists. Typically, surgeons can remove up to 70% of a cancerous liver, if there is no or mild fibrosis. It will regenerate in about two to six weeks following surgery. If patients can withstand surgery and have sufficient liver function, resection offers an excellent five-year survival rate of more than 50%. Liver cancer can recur after resection, and close surveillance is required.. For surgical purposes, the liver is divided into eight segments, based on vascular inflow and bile duct drainage. Branches of the hepatic artery and portal vein supply each segment. ...
Pancreas Tumors - Cancers of the pancreatic duct are the most common but patients can develop neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas as well as cystic tumors that can either be precancerous or malignant upon presentation. Tumors of the pancreas require special operations for complete removal, and the specific operation undertaken is determined by the location of the tumor. Tumors involving the head of the pancreas may require an operation called pancreaticoduodenectomy for complete surgical resection; this operation is also called the Whipple operation after a surgeon in the 1930s who first successfully completed it. ...
Results One hundred and three liver resection patients (88 open and 15 laparoscopic resections) and 67 pancreas resection patients (all open) were compared with 100 historical patients (50 liver resections and 50 pancreas resections). The overall length of stay was significantly decreased from 10 to 7 days after liver resection (p = 0.0293) and from 14 to 10 days after pancreatic resection (p = 0.0002) in patients following the ER protocol. The readmission rate was similiar pre and post intervention in both liver and pancreas resection cohorts (6.0% to 5.6% and 8.0% to 7.5% respectively). The overall mortality rate after implementation of the ER protocol was 0%. ...

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

Discussion. The regenerative capacity of the liver was first described in ancient times, and dates back to Greek mythology:1 Prometheus, a titan and champion of mankind, stole fire from Zeus and presented it to humans. As punishment, Zeus sentenced Prometheus to eternal torment. He was incarcerated on a rock and each day an eagle was sent to feed on his swliver. Fortunately (or unfortunately!) the liver regenerated each night and the eagle returned daily, sentencing Prometheus to eternal torment.. Thankfully, the regenerative capacity of the liver forms the basis of modern hepatobiliary surgery, where in the presence of a noncirrhotic liver, up to 80% of the liver can safely be resected, relying on this regenerative capacity of the remnant to sustain the patients functional requirements.1 Liver resection progress has been significant in the last few decades and pivotal to a better understanding of liver anatomy and physiology.2. Glisson gave the first accurate insights into liver anatomy in ...

Although surgical hepaticojejunostomy plays an important role in the therapy for AS after Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy, reduplicative biliary reconstruction remains a challenging topic for hepatobiliary surgeons, and a considerable percentage of patients still need endoscopic or intercurrent treatment. The standardized regimens in treating AS involve two operational steps: first, to remove the stricture;second, to prevent restricture. Because of this, balloon dilatation and long-term internal/external drainage become the primary approach and gold standard for minimally invasive procedures, especially for patients requiring multiple operations [13].. At present, BD is the main method to relieve AS, and there are several schemes of balloon dilatation, with differing results at follow-up. An early study reported that 93.3 % percent (14/15) of the strictures could be successfully dilated by the BD, but the incidence of restricture was high and could reach up to 45 % within a long-term follow-up ...

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), ...

  • Strict adherence to good endoscopic procedures (aseptic conditions, injection without excessive pressure, antibiotic prophylaxis) and decompression of the biliary tract (nasobiliary drain or transhepatic catheter) should help reduce the frequency of post-ERCP complications, and especially cholangitis, which appears to benefit from early surgical treatment. (
  • Some authors suggest that it would be very useful to perform a magnetic resonance cholangio-pancreatography (MRCP) procedure in order to reveal the exact anatomy of the biliary tract [ 3 ], thus decreasing intra-operative complications and enabling better planning of the surgical procedure. (
  • Others are traumatic and iatrogenic complications such as biliary leaks, hemobilia, and malfunctioning biliary drains/stents. (
  • 3 Since it is noninvasive, MRCP avoids the potential complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and is especially useful in patients with surgically altered biliary anatomy not amenable to ERCP (eg, those with biliary-enteric anastomosis). (
  • Any surgical procedure performed on the biliary tract (bile, the bile ducts, or the gallbladder). (

  • The largest categories of surgical patients in the sample hospitals were observed within two medical groups. (
  • These were patients receiv- ing orthopedic surgical procedures, such as total joint replacement or bone fracture sta- bilization, and patients undergoing abdomi- nal surgical procedures, such as surgery of the digestive or biliary tract. (
  • The procedure was uneventful, showing that this approach may be an option for this kind of surgery even in patients with situs inversus totalis . (
  • Although certain patients show some reaction to neoadjuvant systemic therapy, they have extensive bilateral disease which may be considered unresectable using traditional surgical approaches. (
  • As part of a multidisciplinary approach, the procedure can offer a chance of long-term remission to patients otherwise guaranteed of having a poor outcome. (
  • Additional biliary imaging with MRCP or endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) may be most helpful in those at intermediate probability (10-50%) of choledocholithiasis - patients with only one "strong" predictor and/or at least one moderate predictor - to determine potential need for endoscopic stone extraction.

  • Overview: biliary reconstruction after liver transplantation. (
  • Pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy with modified Child's reconstruction is our standard procedure. (
  • BACKGROUND Hepaticojejunostomy is a common biliary reconstruction procedure in hepatobiliary surgery. (
  • Choledochoduodenostomy (CDD) is a surgical procedure to create an anastomosis, a surgical connection, between the common bile duct (CBD) and an alternative portion of the duodenum. (
  • Given that the duodenum is in a diseased state, or a tension-free anastomosis cannot be created, a CDD should not be performed and alternative bypass procedures could be considered. (
  • Side-to-side anastomosis and end-to-side anastomosis are two procedures that can be done. (
  • CDD is an alternative to choledochojejunostomy, a procedure which involves creating an anastomosis of the CBD to the jejunum. (
