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)

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
Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is the most commonly used surgical technique for reconstruction of the biliary tract in patients with benign biliary stricture [3, 5-8]. In those patients, there is a relatively high incidence of strictured HJ ranging from 2% to 25% [2, 3, 7-10]. The endoscopic management of these complications seems to be the best option and least invasive compared to interventional radiology or reoperation [11-13]. However, the altered anatomy of the Roux-en-Y construction represents a major difficulty to access the HJ by the endoscope. The use of standard gastroduodenoscope proved to be extremely difficult, time consuming and with high failure rate [14, 15].. Several attempts were reported to overcome these difficulties in endoscopic approach to HJ. The use of long enteroscope, whether double balloon or single balloon, was shown to improve the results of endoscopic access. However, these reports are still few with limited number of cases and the availability of the enteroscopes ...

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), ...

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.

Case Study. A 60-year-old man initially presented with rectal bleeding in March 2006. He underwent a colonoscopy, which revealed a rectosigmoid mass, and the biopsy specimen confirmed adenocarcinoma.. In May 2006, the patient underwent planned low anterior resection. During the procedure, he was found to have a metastatic lesion in the left hepatic lobe. Hepatobiliary surgery was consulted, and a left lateral liver resection was performed at the time of the initial operation. Complete surgical pathology revealed T3, N2, M1, with 11 of 28 lymph nodes positive for disease.. The patient then went on to receive postoperative treatment with fluorouracil (5-FU), leucovorin, and oxaliplatin (FOLFOX) and bevacizumab (Avastin). His treatment was interrupted due to sudden cardiac arrest requiring resuscitation measures for ventricular fibrillation. He had an implanted defibrillator placed and resumed treatment with 5-FU/oxaliplatin and bevacizumab chemotherapy. He was then changed to 5-FU and weekly ...

As mentioned before, proper wound care can help speed your recovery after a pilonidal cyst excision, and may also help you cut your risk for recurrence. It is possible to provide your own wound care after excision surgery, but this can be awkward and difficult. Some health insurance plans will cover a few visits by a specially trained home health care nurse, but others will not. The tasks arent difficult and a spouse or trusted friend can easily assist you with no previous training if you find that you need help.. Your surgeon is the expert in your case, so it is vital you follow the instructions given before you are discharged and contact the office if you have any other concerns. This article and other online medical writing is not intended as advice, but can be used to give you an idea of what may be required.. If you have undergone an excision with primary closure, taking care of the wound may be more straightforward. There will be regular dressing changes for approximately two weeks, and a ...

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.

Combinations of gemcitabine and platinum chemotherapy (gemcitabine and platinum-based therapy [GP]) form the standard approach for treating advanced BTC. To characterize the spectrum of mutations and to identify potential biomarkers for a GP response in BTC, this study evaluated the genomic landscape and assessed whether mutations affecting DNA repair were associated with GP resistance. METHODS: Pretreatment, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples from 183 BTC patients treated with GP were analyzed. ...

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 ...

did some more careful thinking about my options. I still hate the way I look and feel. More friends talked to me about how great they felt after their hysterectomy (after they healed, that is).. Finally I hit up the internet one more time, searched out several doctors, and found one closer than the other one. I filled out an online "consultation form"; and two days later, at ten oclock on a Friday night, that surgeon emailed me back. He assured me that his office takes my insurance, and encouraged me to set up an appointment, which I did.. I took my husband to this appointment, and Im really glad I did. This doctor specializes in minimally-invasive gynecology surgery as well as urinary tract surgery. He doesnt deliver babies or see women on a yearly basis, and hes done thousands of these surgeries. He talked a bit to both of us about options, and did an exam, and told me my uterus is 18cm and the fibroids are calcified, which means they cant come out laparoscopically - as a calcified ...

Global Wound Retractor Market: Overview Wound retractor is a treatment device used to control surgical site infection (SSI). It is a highly morbid and costly source of postoperative morbidity and is usually associated with gastrointestinal and biliary surgery. This device has a plastic wrap that cannot be punctured for connection to the stomach area. These are propelled devices instead of general surgical shades and are intended to facilitate the inversion of the surgical opening amid surgery without the utilization of extra mechanical retractors and fabric. These gadgets have been recommended by a few organizations to lessen surgical site tainting rates after open stomach/gynecologic surgery and laparoscopic surgery. The new surgical gadget is made of a non-glue plastic sheath with a solitary or twofold flexible ring that holds the plastic sheath overwhelmingly to the edge of the injury.. The Wound Retractor Market, which was esteemed at US$ 365.97 billion in 2016, is relied upon to achieve an ...

Portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a sign of advanced stage disease, which is associated with poor prognosis. Liver resection (LR) may provide better prognosis in selected patients. In the present study, we aimed to assess information from HCC patients with PVTT who died within 3 months or 2 years after LR in order to identify preoperative factors correlated to short-term or long-term survival, by which inappropriate selection of patients for LR might be avoided in the future. A retrospective cohort study consisting of 487 consecutive cases of HCC patients with PVTT was performed from 2008 to 2010 at Eastern Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital. Medical records, including laboratory values, imaging results and treatment information, were obtained from participants. Study endpoints were survival at 3 months and 2 years post-hepatectomy. Logistic regression analysis was utilized to determine the significant pre-operative factors influencing short-term or long-term survival.

A new research study published online as an "article in press" on the Journal of the American College of Surgeons website in advance of print publication concluded that patients who participated in an enhanced recovery program following colorectal surgery left the hospital sooner and had a significantly lower hospital costs than those following a traditional pattern of care. The focus of the enhanced recovery program is to speed patients recovery by reducing the bodys stress responses to a surgical procedure and promoting earlier return of bodily functions. In this study patient stays were trimmed by nearly two days, on average, compared to patients receiving traditional care and there was no increase in readmissions in the first month following surgery. In addition, the rate of surgical site infections dropped by nearly 10 percent.. Enhanced recovery includes but goes beyond "fast tract surgery" in which there is minimal invasive techniques and encouragement of early mobilization and eating ...
