Perforation of the gallbladder: analysis of 19 cases. (1/422)

Perforation of the gallbladder occurred in 19 (3.8%) of 496 patients with acute cholecystitis treated at one hospital in an 8-year period. The average age of the 19 patients was 69 years and the female:male ratio was 3:2. Most had a history suggestive of gallbladder disease and most had coexisting cardiac, pulmonary, renal, nutritional or metabolic disease. The duration of the present illness was short, perforation occurring within 72 hours of the onset of symptoms in half the patients; the diagnosis was not suspected preoperatively in any. In the elderly patient with acute cholecystitis who has a long history of gallbladder disease, cholecystectomy should be performed early, before gangrene and perforation of the gallbladder can occur.  (+info)

Obstructive cholecystitis due to metastatic melanoma. (2/422)

A patient with isolated metastases from cutaneous melanoma to the gall-bladder is reported. The patient presented clinically with obstructive cholecystitis. The course of melanoma is unpredictable and the possibility that an apparently unassociated condition is due to metastases should always be considered. Isolated metastases may respond well to radical surgery and reward the surgeon's efforts.  (+info)

The efficacy of laparoscopy in acute cholecystitis. (3/422)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in acute cholecystitis and establish the outcomes of this treatment modality at North Oakland Medical Centers. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis over a three-year period (January 1, 1994 to December 31, 1996), performed at a University-affiliated urban teaching hospital, North Oakland Medical Centers, Pontiac, Michigan. Five hundred and fifty-seven patients underwent surgical treatment for gallbladder disease; 88 patients had acute cholecystitis, and 469 patients had chronic cholecystitis. Acute cholecystitis patients underwent surgery within 72 hours of the onset of symptoms; the patient's selection for laparoscopic cholecystectomy or open cholecystectomy depended on severity of disease, co-morbid factors and surgeon's preference. The parameters of age, gender, operating (OR) time, length of stay, complications, conversion rates from laparoscopic cholecystectomy to open cholecystectomy, and cost were compared in patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy and/or open cholecystectomy. RESULTS: Patients chosen to undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis tended to be younger females. Patients treated with laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis had shorter OR times and LOS compared to patients treated with open cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis. Conversion rates (CR) were 22% in acute cholecystitis and 5.5% in chronic cholecystitis during the study period; CR diminished considerably between the first and third year. Complications were also lower in patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy vs. open cholecystectomy. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy appears to be a reliable, safe, and cost-effective treatment modality for acute cholecystitis; however, the surgical approach should be cautionary because of the spectrum of potential technical hazards. CR is improving as surgeons gain experience.  (+info)

Predicting conversion of laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis. (4/422)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be safely performed in patients with acute cholecystitis. However, the rate of conversion to open cholecystectomy remains higher when compared with patients with chronic cholecystitis. Preoperative clinical or laboratory parameters that could predict the need for conversion may assist the surgeon in preoperative or intraoperative decision making. This could have cost-saving implications. METHODS: A retrospective review of 46 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis was performed. Records were assessed for preoperative clinical, laboratory and radiographic parameters on admission. Temperature and laboratory parameters were also recorded prior to surgery after an initial period of hospitalization that included intravenous antibiotics. The effect of admission and preoperative parameters as well as the trend in these parameters prior to surgery upon the rate of conversion to open cholecystectomy was assessed. RESULTS: Ten patients (22%) required conversion to open cholecystectomy. Conversion was required more often in males (43%) when compared with females (4%) (p=0.003). Conversion rate was 30% in patients with increased wall thickness by ultrasound compared with 12% for patients without wall thickening (p=ns). No admission or preoperative laboratory values predicted conversion. The trend in the patient's temperature (p=0.0003) and serum LDH value (p=0.043) predicted the need for conversion to open surgery. CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative prediction of the need for open cholecystectomy remains elusive. Male patients and patients with rising temperature and LDH levels while on intravenous antibiotics require conversion at increased frequency. However, the benefits of laparoscopic cholecystectomy warrant an attempt at laparoscopic removal in most patients with acute cholecystitis.  (+info)

Small cell carcinoma of the gallbladder: report of two cases. (5/422)

Two Taiwanese patients with gallbladder small cell carcinoma are reported. One is a 79 year-old male, the other, a 86 year-old female. They both presented with the symptom/signs of acute cholecystitis and underwent cholecystectomy. An intramural mass in the gallbladder neck region was found in the first patient, while the second patient had a transmural indurated tumor in the gallbladder body with extension to the neck region. Characteristic histological and immunohistochemical features of small cell carcinoma were present in both, and electron dense neurosecretory granules were identified in the second. To our knowledge, the second patient is the oldest ever reported. The first patient received chemotherapy directed toward the initial erroneous diagnosis of non-Hodgkin s lymphoma and developed liver metastasis in two months. The second patient did not receive chemotherapy due to her poor general condition and local recurrence occurred in six weeks. Both passed away three and five months after surgery, respectively.  (+info)

Chronic acalculous cholecystitis: changes in patient demographics and evaluation since the advent of laparoscopy. (6/422)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To analyze patients with chronic acalculous cholecystitis over ten years, during which laparotomy was replaced by laparoscopy as the dominant operation for cholecystectomy in regard to patient demographics, diagnostic evaluations, follow-up symptoms, and additional operations. METHODS: Of 7181 cholecystectomies from June 1985 to June 1995, 301 patients had chronic acalculous cholecystitis. All subsequent hospital admissions and emergency room visits were reviewed through May 1997. Office records were available for review in 158 cases. Two eras were defined, the open era from June 1985 through May 1990, and the laparoscopic era from June 1990 through June 1995. RESULTS: Twice as many patients with chronic acalculous disease underwent cholecystectomy after the advent of laparoscopy. Patients with chronic acalculous disease were significantly younger than patients with cholelithiasis in both open and laparoscopic cases. The percentage of white women increased from 64.7% in the open to 75.7% in the laparoscopic era (p<0.05). The numbers of preoperative diagnostic tests performed decreased from 4.7+/-2.4 in the open to 3.2+/-1.8 in the laparoscopic era (p<0.05). Twenty-two percent of patients had continued symptoms postoperatively, and 8 patients (2.7%) required other abdominal operations within one year of cholecystectomy. CONCLUSION: Chronic acalculous cholecystitis is a disease of white females, doubling in frequency over the decade of review. Of these, 78% of patients had resolution of their symptoms on long-term follow-up.  (+info)

Cholecystokinin cholescintigraphy: victim of its own success? (7/422)

Numerous publications have reported that a low gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) determined by cholecystokinin (CCK) cholescintigraphy has a high positive predictive value for the diagnosis of chronic acalculous cholecystitis (CAC). Clinicians and surgeons have found this test to be clinically useful as an objective method to confirm their clinical diagnosis. However, an abnormally low GBEF is not specific for CAC. For example, numerous other diseases have been associated with a low GBEF, and various therapeutic drugs can cause poor gallbladder contraction. Importantly, improper CCK infusion methodology can result in an erroneously low GBEF. More than one third of healthy subjects and patients who receive sincalide, 0.02 microg/kg infused over 1-3 min, will have an erroneously low GBEF but will have a normal GBEF with a slower infusion (30-60 min) of the same total dose. Because of enthusiastic acceptance of CCK cholescintigraphy by clinicians, the types of patients referred for this test have changed over time. Patients investigated in publications confirming the usefulness of CCK cholescintigraphy had a high pretest likelihood of disease. They underwent extensive workup to rule out other diseases and were followed up for months or years before CCK cholescintigraphy was performed, allowing other diseases to become manifest or symptoms to resolve. However, CCK cholescintigraphy is now being used by clinicians to shorten the workup and follow-up time based on the rationale that CCK cholescintigraphy can quickly confirm or exclude the diagnosis. This new group of referral patients has a lower likelihood of the disease. Many will ultimately be diagnosed with diseases other than CAC. The positive predictive value of this test will likely be lower and the false-positive rate will likely be higher. Nuclear medicine physicians must work to minimize false-positive studies to maintain the confidence of referring clinicians. First, we can educate referring physicians as to the proper use of this study. Next, we must perform CCK cholescintigraphy using optimal methodology that will result in the lowest possible false-positive rate. And finally, we must interpret CCK cholescintigraphy in light of the patient's history, prior workup and clinical setting.  (+info)

Looking for Chronic cholecystitis? Find out information about Chronic cholecystitis. Inflammation of the gallbladder. an inflammation of the gallbladder that frequently occurs in cholelithiasis , after viral hepatitis and other infectious... Explanation of Chronic cholecystitis
The pathogenesis of cholecystitis is not clearly understood but it appears that gallstone obstruction (calculous cholecystitis) leads to distension of the gallbladder. This disrupts the blood flow and lymphatic drainage resulting in inflammation, which leads to ischemia (tissue injury) and eventually necrosis (tissue death) if left untreated.. Another possible mechanism is that damage of the gallbladder mucosa releases phospholipase which then interacts with the lecithin in the bile, converting it to lysolecithin. This compound is a known toxin which may cause inflammation of the gallbladder (chemically induced).. It is likely that both these mechanisms occur in acute calculous cholecystitis.. Chronic cholecystitis is often a result of repeated bouts of acute cholecystitis although it may arise with no previous episodes of acute cholecystitis.. ...
Ultrasound (US) is the preferred imaging examination for the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis and is the first method used when the clinical presentation is suggestive of biliary pathology. The main findings of acute calculous cholecystitis on US include in addition to the presence of stones: distension of the gallbladder lumen, gallbladder wall thickening, a positive US Murphy sign, pericholecystic fluid [5, 6] and a hyperemic wall upon evaluation with Color Doppler [7, 8].. Ultrasound has the best sensitivity and specificity for evaluating patients with suspected gallstones [9]. As reported in the literature [10], some ultrasonographic findings are more strongly associated with acute cholecystitis than others: a positive Murphys sign (pain is provoked by either the transducer or the sonographers palpation under guidance, in the exact area of the gallbladder) is reported to have sensitivity as high as 88% [11, 12].

Treatment for cholecystitis will depend on your symptoms and your general health. People who have gallstones but dont have any symptoms may need no treatment. For mild cases, treatment includes bowel rest, fluids and antibiotics given through a vein, and pain medicine. The main treatment for acute cholecystitis is surgery to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). Often this surgery can be done through small incisions in the abdomen (laparoscopic cholecystectomy), but sometimes it requires a more extensive operation. Your doctor may try to reduce swelling and irritation in the gallbladder before removing it. Sometimes acute cholecystitis is caused by one or more gallstones getting stuck in the main tube leading to the intestine, called the common bile duct. Treatment may involve an endoscopic procedure (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP) to remove the stones in the common bile duct before the gallbladder is removed. In rare cases of chronic cholecystitis, you may also ...

There have been a number of modifications in the technique of LC. The use of the fourth trocar which is generally used for fundic retraction in the American technique seemed unnecessary by some surgeons [4] others used sutures to retract the gall bladder [11, 15]. Trichac in his prospective trial addressed the safety and the advantages of the three port technique in terms of analgesia requirement [11], though he found no improvement in postoperative hospital stay, his work and other published series on this technique were carried out only on elective patients. In fact the procedure was practiced on cases of acute cholecystitis as well but not reported [16]. In this retrospective single centre non randomised review we compared the safety and the advantages of three-port LC in AC and CC in a large comparative study.. When performed on acute and chronic cholecystitis the three-port technique was found to be safe; there were no common bile duct injuries or deaths in either group. Port site bleeding, ...
Introduction: Although both conditions are very common, concomitance of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute has never been reported. In this paper, we present a case of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute appendicitis. Case Report: A 66-year-old female presented with a four-day history of right side abdominal pain associated with nausea, pyrexic and tachycardia (pulse rate 105 beats per minute). An ultrasound of her abdomen and pelvis revealed an inflamed, thick-walled gallbladder with evidence of multiple small gallstones. Her appendix could not be visualized. A diagnostic +/- therapeutic laparoscopy was performed, which revealed an inflamed gallbladder and fluid collection in right iliac fossa with foul smelling. A combined laparoscopic cholecystectomy with open appendectomy was performed. Intraoperatively perforated appendix was found. Postoperative follow-up was uneventful and the patient was free of complaint two weeks later. Conclusion: While most of the abdominal

Gallstones are estimated to occur in over 20% of Americans annually. Although the majority of these patients are asymptomatic, biliary colic develops in 1-4% of these individuals each year, and acute cholecystitis develops in approximately 20% of these patients [1].. The standard evaluation consists of a history and physical examination, laboratory analysis, and diagnostic imaging. Isolated clinical and laboratory findings are neither sensitive nor specific, with the classic triad of right upper quadrant pain, fever, and leukocytosis occurring in a minority of these cases [2].. The current gold standard for diagnosis is now considered to be a positive hepatobiliary imino-diacetic acid scan (HIDA). Ultrasonographic evidence is also used to confirm this diagnosis, and has a sensitivity of approximately 87% and a specificity of approximately 82% [3]. Because of its ready availability and high diagnostic accuracy, ultrasound is generally considered the initial test of choice for the evaluation of ...

We evaluated the correlations between demographic or clinical variables, including the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS), and the C-reactive protein/albumin (CRP/Alb) ratio, as well as the disease severity grade on the basis of the revised Tokyo guidelines ...
of bile duct injuries (BDI) was 0.3%, in which symptomatic cholecystolithiasis account for 0.1%, acute cholecystitis 0.36% and acute chronic cholecystitis with gallbladder atrophy up to 3% [7]. Wu Xihong reported that 936 cases of MC were performed from January 1998 to November 2000, and the incidence rate of BDI was 0.84% (8/936) [8].. Before LC became common treatment of gall bladder diseases, the number of open cholecystectomy (OC) cases in the US exceeded 700 000 per year and among them the incidence of BDI was 0.2%. [9] Compared to the conventional open cholecystectomy, the incidence of BDI after LC and MC is at least doubled. Many injuries are due, rather, to the surgeons failure to respect basic technical rules, long established for open cholecystectomy and which should not be modified for the laparoscopic technique.. The increase in frequency of IBDI can not be attributed simply to the inexperience of the surgeons or the learning curve as was initially considered. In the presence of ...

You can do some operations without knowing how to operate. In my book I wrote "with enough bananas, you could teach a monkey to take out an ovary." Some gallbladders are so easy to remove, hanging loosely under the liver like a pluckable plum, that I refer to them as "gynecologic gallbladders." If your first couple of gallbladders are like that, you can get lulled into thinking you know what youre doing. (Way back in my early practice days, when our community allowed more or less unfettered surgery privileges, more than once I was urgently invited in to bail out a family doc who discovered dramatically the mysteries held in the right upper quadrant, and whod been epiphanized into the realization that knowing how to hold a scissors in ones hand does not a surgeon make.) In those same ancient times, it was believed that operating when the gallbladder was actively inflamed was to be avoided at almost all costs. Whereas its true that most attacks of acute cholecystitis simmer down without the ...

Sixty-five (65) clinical studies involving PPC and NAFLD have been published since 1980, and out of these forty four (44) have been published since 2000. Nineteen mostly randomized clinical studies were open-controlled, one single-blind and three double-blind. Dosage of PPC and treatment duration varied between 0.9 g and 1.8 g/day per os, and lasted from 5 weeks to more than 24 months. The majority of the studies were 2-6 months in duration and used 1.8 g of PPC/day per os. Most patients suffered from NASH. NAFLD was mainly induced by obesity and type 2 diabetes, but partly also by hyperlipidemia, arterial hypertension, coronary heart disease/ atherosclerotic cardiosclerosis, chronic viral hepatitis, cholecystitis/cholelithiasis, Wilsons disease, hypothyreoidism and pregnancy, or by mixed forms of these diseases ...

Acute cholecystitis. Acute Cholecystitis refers to sudden onset of severe abdominal pain which is caused by inflammation or infection of the lining of gall-bladder. There may be a number of causes that can lead to infection of gall-bladder, but the major cause that can lead to gall-bladder pain and infection is presence of stones. The pain due to acute Cholecystitis is in the upper right portion of body and trunk region. The first bout of pain due to acute Cholecystitis may not be very severe but if left untreated, the pain gets more and more severe with every passing episode. Initially this pain is very intermittent and often continues as being unnoticed. In these cases the only option left is surgery.. How can differentiate the pain of Cholecystitis from other sources of upper abdominal pain?. There may be a number of causes that may lead to upper abdominal pain, like liver issue, disorders of stomach and esophagus and of the bile tracts but a few features of Cholecystitis may help you in ...

Operations were performed on 1166 patients with acute cholecystitis in a group of surgical hospitals of the Novgorod region in the period from 1983 till 1986. Sixty eight of them died (5.8%). Among the immediate causes of death the first place is occupied by purulent complications, the second place -- by acute cardiovascular insufficiency. It is stressed that elderly and senile patients prevailed among those who died after operations for acute cholecystitis (83.8%). The role of timely admission to the hospital and early operations of patients with acute cholecystitis in getting favourable results is stressed.
RADIOLOGY: HEPATOBILIARY: Case# 100: CHOLECYSTITIS (CT&US). Right abdominal pain with abnormal sonogram of the gallbladder. There is a layering density present in the gallbladder with apparent discontinuation in the gallbladder wall. Pericholecystic fluid is present with free intraperitoneal fluid around the liver also. No air is present in the gallbladder. Wispy infiltrative changes are present in the adjacent intraperitoneal fat consistent with inflammation. Acute cholecystitis, or inflammation of the gallbladder, can be classified as calculous (associated with gallstones) or acalculous. Gangrenous cholecystitis is a rare form of acute cholecystitis which is often indistinguishable from acute cholecystitis. The mortality rate of gangrenous cholecystitis is 22% while the mortality rate for acute cholecystitis is only around 1 to 6%. Symptoms associated with the onset of acute cholecystitis include progressive right upper quadrant or epigastric pain, mild fever, anorexia, tachycardia, diaphoresis,

INTRODUCTION: According to the Tokyo guidelines, cholecystitis is classified into three categories (Grade I, II, III) depending on its severity. The guideline recommends some therapeutic options for each categories. The guideline notes early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) or gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) is required for grade II cholecystitis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the risk factors for the difficulty of the LC in the Grade II cholecystitis.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Medical records since 2010 to 2015, were retrospectively reviewed. A total of 98 Grade II cholecystitis patients who underwent LC were enrolled in this study, including patients converted to open surgery. The ...
Acute acalculous cholecystitis (AAC) represents inflammation of the gallbladder in the absence of demonstrated calculi (see the image below). The disease process of AAC is distinct from that of the calculous variety, in which the primary initiating event is believed to be obstruction of the cystic duct.
When the diagnosis of acalculous cholecystitis is established, immediate intervention is indicated because of the high risk of rapid deterioration and gallbladder perforation. In patients with acalcul... more
Prophylactic cholecystectomy has been recommended in patients who have diabetes and silent gallstones because of the reports of increased mortality resulting from acute cholecystitis in such patients. To assess recent mortality rates, we reviewed the course of acute cholecystitis in patients hospitalized between 1960 and 1981 at one hospital. Death occurred in 3 of 46 patients with diabetes and in 7 of 263 patients without the disease (p = 0.55). The age-adjusted estimate of the relative risk for death was 2.2 (95% confidence interval, 0.5 to 9.4) for diabetic compared with nondiabetic patients. All 3 diabetic patients who died had been diagnosed as having diabetes within 5 years of death, and only one had been taking insulin. Patients who had elevated blood urea nitrogen levels ( , 20 mg/dL) were found to have an increased mortality rate when compared with patients with normal levels (27% compared with 2%; p , 0.001). Results were similar for the outcome of serious complications. These results ...

Gallbladder adenomyomatosis is an epithelial proliferation and hypertrophy of the muscularis mucosae of the gallbladder. Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses are a characteristic of this condition. The segmental adenomyomatosis has a higher risk of developing into gallbladder carcinoma, especially in the fundal region of elderly patients. We report the case of a patient affected by chronic calculous cholecystitis with diffuse adenomyomatosis associated with dysplastic adenoma. An 81-year-old woman presented at our hospital with a 1-year history of intermittent pain localized at the right upper abdominal quadrant, without diffusion to any other body part. On physical examination the abdomen was soft, not distended, and tender to palpation in the right upper quadrant. Murphy sign was negative. Laboratory tests were normal. The patient was scheduled for a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and neither endoscopic ultrasonographic scan nor magnetic resonance imaging was performed. The operation, performed after obtaining

INTRODUCTION Common bile duct (CBD) stones are found in near 10% of patients undergoing elective laparoscopic surgery for symptomatic gallstone disease. For these patients laparoscopic trans-cystic exploration of the common duct (LTCE) with basket catheters has proved to be a safe and effective method to obtain CBD clearance. The occurrence of CBD stones ranges from 10 to 20% in patients presenting with acute cholecystitis (AC) but in this setting little is known about the feasibility and the effectiveness of LTCE as part of a single-stage laparoscopic procedure.. METHODS AND PROCEDURES We report the results of a prospective study based on a "laparoscopy first" policy for patients with gallstone disease and CBD stones. The study, ...

The acute acalculous cholecystitis is an uncom- mon complication in the burned patient. It is secondary to atony and ischemia of the gallblad- der. It may progress to a necroinflammatory process that frequently complicates with bile infection and systemic sepsis. Moreover, this atony affects bile composition, causing the gallbladder mucosa to be more susceptible to damage. Clinically it is characterized by pain and palpable mass in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen, fever, leukocytosis and increase of bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase. Gallbladder ultrasonography is the best tool lead to diagnosis. Early treatment with antibiotics associated to surgical or endoscopic procedures is fundamental to reduce the morbimortality of this entity ...

Gallbladder mainly stores a combination of fluids, fat and cholesterol known as bile, which breaks down fat from food into intestine. Our small intestine gets the bile from the gallbladder. By this, nutrients as well as fat soluble vitamins can easily be absorbed in the bloodstream.Inflammation of the gallbladder is known as cholecystitis. It can be either acute i.e. for short term or chronic i.e. for long term. Several acute cholecystitis attacks can lead to chronic inflammation. The surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder is known as cholecystectomy.What are Gallstones?These are not actual stones but are pieces of solid materials which form in the gallbladder. Until the gallstones block the bile duct and causes pain, a person could not even know that he has gallstones.

Gallbladder inflammation. Gross clinical specimen of inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis, red/black, centre). Cholecystitis can be caused by gallstones blocking the outlet (cystic duct), which results in chemical irritation of the gallbladder walls followed by bacterial infection. Symptoms include abdominal pain, fever and sometimes jaundice. Treatment of the acute form can take the shape of a modified diet along with pain killing drugs. Recurrent acute or chronic inflammation may require surgical removal (cholecystectomy) of the gallbladder. - Stock Image M130/0627

As this case exemplifies, the inclusion of diffusion-weighted (DW) sequences in standard and fast/urgent abdominal MRI acquisition protocols may further increase the diagnostic confidence for AC rapidly and noninvasively. The inflamed gallbladder wall is visually hyperintense on high b-value DW images with apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values significantly lower than those observed in normal conditions and reported to fall in the range 1.68-1.96x10-3 mm2/s. The key differential diagnosis of restricted gallbladder wall diffusion are chronic cholecystitis, which lacks diffusion restriction, and cancer, which generally shows ADC values below 1.2x10 x10-3 mm2/s. Albeit some authors believe that confident differentiation is possible between malignant versus benign mural thickening, some overlap may exist between ADC values: therefore DW findings should be always interpreted in conjunction with standard MRI sequences, in which AC mural thickening is generally smooth and diffuse with preserved ...

Gallstones can cause severe pain called biliary colic. This pain is usually sever, intermittent, lasts about 30 minutes, and resolves on its own. The pain is usually located in the upper belly area, in the middle or the right upper side. The pain can travel to the back in-between the shoulder blades, and can be associated with nausea/vomiting.. Biliary colic can occur for many years without advancing into something more serious, but there is a chance of complications such as cholecystitis and cholangitis..

However, there is an abundance of clinical situation, with apparently ischemic ECG change not indicate traditionally coronary artery related ischemia and therefore require prompt recognition and treatment of underlying condition, that may be serious and life-threatened. For example of such conditions are pericarditis, myocarditis, aortic dissection, electrolyte abnormalities, intracranial hemorrhage and hypothermia.. Together with them, an ECG ST segment changes may appeared in abdominal serious illness such as pancreatitis and cholecystitis(17,18,19,20,23).

Objective: To assess the outcome of optimal timing of early laparoscopic cholecystectomy in cases of acute calculous cholecystitis. Material and methods: This is a descriptive case series conducted in Shaukat Omer Memorial (Fauji Foundation) Hospital and Hill-Park General Hospital Karachi, from April 2010 to November 2011. Clinical records of 164 patients who underwent early laparoscopic cholecystectomy in acute calculous cholecystitis were retrieved and categorized into two groups according to the timing of surgery from the onset of symptoms (A, who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 72 hours; B, who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy after 72 hours). Primary Outcomes were conversion to open procedure, postoperative complications and length of hospital stay. The SPSS version 11 was utilized for data analyses. Chi-square test was used to assess qualitative and unpaired Student t test was employed for quantitative data. A value of p | 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: A total of
INTRODUCTION: laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the gold standard in the treatment of symptomatic gallstones. The common opinion about treatment of acute cholecystitis is initially conservative treatment due to preventing complications of inflamation and following laparoscopic cholecystectomy after 6- 8 weeks. However with the increase of laparoscopic experience in recent years, early laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become more common. METHODS: we aimed to compare the outcomes of the patients to whom we applied early or late cholecystectomy after hospitalization from the emergency department with the diagnosis of AC between March 2012-2015. RESULTS: we retrospectively reviewed the files of totally 66 patients in whom we performed early cholecystectomy (within the first 24 hours) (n: 33) and to whom we firstly administered conservative therapy and performed late cholecystectomy (after 6 to 8 weeks) (n: 33) after hospitalization from the emergency department with the diagnosis of acute

Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is a rare disease characterised by the replacement of normal renal parenchyma by foamy macrophages. The only treatment for this type of pyelonephritis is of a surgical nature with partial or total nephrectomy. The occurrence of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis during pregnancy is a rare event (with only 6 cases described in the literature). We report a case of xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis in a 32-week pregnant woman associated with hepatic dysfunction.
Gallbladder perforation is a rare but life threatening event [4]. Broadly speaking, gallbladder perforations can be traumatic, iatrogenic, or idiopathic. Conditions such as cholelithiasis, infections, malignancy, steroid therapy, diabetes mellitus and atherosclerotic heart disease are all predisposing factors for gallbladder perforation [5].. Niemeier in 1934 classified free gallbladder perforation into 3 types. Type 1 (acute) is associated with generalized biliary peritonitis, type 2 (subacute) consists of localization of fluid at the site of perforation, pericholecystic abscess and localized peritonitis while type 3 (chronic) comprises formation of internal or external fistulae [6]. Recent studies have cited higher rates of subacute or Type 2 perforations as compared to other types [7, 8]. Our patient had a type 1 gallbladder perforation because of associated generalized biliary peritonitis.. In a study reporting the features of gall bladder perforation in 19 patients with acute cholecystitis, ...
Introduction: Gallbladder carcinoma has been associated with various paraneoplastic syndromes. These may be the presenting manifestations that lead the clinician to a diagnosis. Case Report: We report a case of small cell gallbladder carcinoma complicated by paraneoplastic hyponatremia. The hyponatremia was further exacerbated by platinum-based chemotherapy. Discussion: There have previously been no reports of paraneoplastic hyponatremia in gallbladder carcinoma. We discuss the management of this problem and also provide a short literature review on the other paraneoplastic syndromes associated with gallbladder carcinoma. Conclusion: Symptoms and signs of gallbladder cancer may be insidious. Thorough workup is needed if the patient presents with symptoms and signs of a paraneoplastic syndrome. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC ...
The differential diagnosis should also be made with other granulomatous diseases such as sarcoidosis, granuloma annulare, and reaction to a foreign body. In these cases, the definitive diagnosis is reached by means of a skin biopsy.21. Given that it infects several target organs, ECD can mimic various syndromes and diseases, such as Langerhans cell histiocytosis, Wegener granulomatosis, lymphoproliferative processes, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and Takayasu disease.17,22 Delays between onset of symptoms and the definitive diagnosis are not uncommon.3. Evaluation of the Patient With Adult Xanthogranulomatous Disease of the Orbit. Once AXDO has been confirmed by histopathology, the next step is to assess systemic involvement.2 This is an indispensable stage in any patient with xanthogranuloma of the orbit, since clinical forms may be histopathologically indistinguishable.1 The 3 cornerstones of evaluation of the patient with AXDO are evaluation of orbital involvement, evaluation of hematologic ...
