Gallbladder disease: an update on diagnosis and treatment. (1/24)

This paper reviews the clinical presentation of gallstone disease, acalculous cholecystitis, biliary dyskinesia, and gallbladder cancer, as well as how to make best use of current diagnostic and treatment methods, particularly ultrasonography, cholescintigraphy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.  (+info)

Percutaneous cholecystostomy in the management of acute cholecystitis. (2/24)

BACKGROUND: The mainstay of therapy for acute cholecystitis is cholecystectomy, which has a mortality of 14-30% in high risk patients. An alternative approach in patients suffering from acute cholecystitis with contraindications to emergency surgery is percutaneous cholecystostomy. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of percutaneous cholecystostomy as the initial treatment of acute cholecystitis in high risk patients. METHODS: Eighty consecutive patients (42 men, 38 women) underwent ultrasound-guided percutaneous cholecystostomy over a 5 year period. Sixty-five patients suffered from acute calculous cholecystitis, 4 patients had acalculous cholecystitis, and 11 patients had sepsis of unknown origin. RESULTS: Sixty-eight patients improved after the percutaneous gallbladder drainage, 10 patients died from co-morbid disease and 2 patients died from biliary peritonitis. During a 1 year follow-up, 32 of the patients underwent interval cholecystectomy, 4 additional patients died from a co-morbid disease, 18 patients did not suffer from any gallbladder symptoms, and 14 were lost to follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Percutaneous cholecystostomy is an effective contribution to the treatment of acute cholecystitis in high risk patients.  (+info)

Cholecysto-choledochostomy plus construction of subcutaneous cholecystic tunnel in treatment of choledocholith. (3/24)

OBJECTIVE: To avoid the pitfalls of choledochotomy with T-tube drainage in the treatment of choledocholith. METHODS: A novel operation was designed as cholecysto-choledochostomy plus construction of subcutaneous cholecystic tunnel. After the common bile duct was cut open and stones were removed, the gallbladder was appropriately dissociated and the cholecystic ampulla was incised. Then, the incision of the cholecystic ampulla was anastomosed to the opened common bile duct, and the cholecystic fundus was fixed out of the abdominal muscular stratum. RESULTS: Twenty-one patients with choledocholith underwent this operation successfully and recovered well without postoperative complications. One of them was diagnosed as having recurrent stones in 2 years and 3 months after operation. Consequently, the subcutaneous cholecystic tunnel was opened under local anesthesia to remove successfully the stones with choledochoscope. CONCLUSION: This operation provides a convenient way to remove postoperative recurrent stones with choledochoscope and avoid receliotomy.  (+info)

Percutaneous cholecystostomy for the treatment of acute cholecystitis in the critically ill and elderly. (4/24)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical efficacy and outcomes of percutaneous cholecystostomy as an alternative treatment option for elderly and critically ill patients who have acute cholecystitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The medical records of patients who underwent emergency percutaneous cholecystostomy at the North District Hospital, Hong Kong from September 1999 to July 2002 were reviewed. Indications for the procedure, patient demographics, and other clinical details were recorded. RESULTS: A total of 25 patients (10 male, 15 female) with a median age of 81 years (range, 39-97 years) presented with acute cholecystitis and underwent percutaneous cholecystostomy with ultrasound guidance. Two patients required emergency cholecystectomy on day 1 after the procedures because of deteriorating conditions. The rest of the patients clinically improved after drainage. There was no major periprocedural complication, and four patients had their catheter accidentally dislodged but did not require re-insertion. There were five in-patient mortalities, although the majority of these deaths were from unrelated illness. Subsequently, only six patients underwent elective cholecystectomy, one open and five laparoscopic. Two patients were offered percutaneous endoscopic cholecystolithotripsy, one defaulted and the other could not tolerate the procedure. Eleven patients declined further intervention due to the high surgical risks, three of these patients developed biliary symptoms, one had acute cholecystitis, and the other two had cholangitis. The rest of patients had no symptoms related to the gallstones. The median follow-up period was 81 weeks (range, 27-162 weeks). CONCLUSION: Percutaneous cholecystostomy is a viable treatment option for elderly and critically ill patients presenting with acute cholecystitis. It has a high success rate with minimal procedure-related complications. Elective cholecystostomy is the treatment of choice for low-risk patients after the initial acute cholecystitis.  (+info)

Ultrasound guided percutaneous cholecystostomy in high-risk patients for surgical intervention. (5/24)

AIM: To assess the efficacy and safety of ultrasound guided percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) in the treatment of acute cholecystitis in a well-defined high risk patients under general anesthesia. METHODS: The data of 27 consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous transhepatic cholecystostomy for the management of acute cholecystitis from January 1999 to June 2003 was retrospectively evaluated. All of the patients had both clinical and sonographic signs of acute cholecystitis and had comorbid diseases. RESULTS: Ultrasound revealed gallbladder stones in 25 patients and acalculous cholecystitis in two patients. Cholecystostomy catheters were removed 14-32 d (mean 23 d) after the procedure in cases where complete regression of all symptoms was achieved. There were statistically significant reductions in leukocytosis, (13.7 x 10(3)+/-1.3 x 10(3) microg/L vs 13 x 10(3)+/-1 x 10(3) microg/L, P < 0.05 for 24 h after PC; 13.7 x 10(3)+/-1.3 x 10(3) microg/L vs 8.3 x 10(3)+/-1.2 x 10(3) microg/L, P < 0.0001 for 72 h after PC), C -reactive protein (51.2+/-18.5 mg/L vs 27.3+/-10.4 mg/L, P < 0.05 for 24 h after PC; 51.2+/-18.5 mg/L vs 5.4+/-1.5 mg/L, P < 0.0001 for 72 h after PC), and fever (38+/-0.35 centigrade vs 37.3+/-0.32 centigrade, P < 0.05 for 24 h after PC; 38+/-0.35 centigrade vs 36.9+/-0.15 centigrade, P < 0.0001 for 72 h after PC). Sphincterotomy and stone extraction was performed successfully with endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP) in three patients. After cholecystostomy, 5 (18%) patients underwent delayed cholecystectomy without any complications. Three out of 22 patients were admitted with recurrent acute cholecystitis during the follow-up and recovered with medical treatment. Catheter dislodgement occurred in three patients spontaneously, and two of them were managed by reinsertion of the catheter. CONCLUSION: As an alternative to surgery, percutaneous cholecystostomy seems to be a safe method in critically ill patients with acute cholecystitis and can be performed with low mortality and morbidity. Delayed cholecystectomy and ERCP, if needed, can be performed after the acute period has been resolved by percutaneous cholecystostomy.  (+info)

Obstructive cholelithiasis and cholecystitis in a keeshond. (6/24)

A 10-year-old, neutered male, keeshond was presented for vomiting, lethargy, icterus, and anorexia. Obstructive cholelithiasis was diagnosed based on analysis of a serum biochemical profile, abdominal radiographs, and ultrasonography. Choleliths were removed from the gall bladder and common bile duct via a cholecystotomy.  (+info)

Early endoscopic sphincterotomy for retained bile duct stones after gallbladder surgery. (7/24)

Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) was performed in 36 patients (age range 33-88 years; median 63 years) with retained bile duct stones after cholecystectomy (32 patients) or cholecystostomy (4 patients). The median time interval between surgery and ES was 28 days (range 10-216 days). At the time of ES, 23 patients had a T-tube in situ. Clearance of the bile duct was achieved by T-tube irrigation in 15 patients, and by basket or balloon extraction in seven patients. Spontaneous clearance of the duct after ES occurred in 12 patients, while two patients required widening of the sphincterotomy to allow successful basket extraction. Complications occurred in four patients (11%). Two patients sustained significant haemorrhage from the ES site and subsequently died. One patient developed mild acute pancreatitis while another had persisting cholangitis before and after ES. Both of these patients recovered with conservative management. While ES performed soon after gallbladder surgery allows for early bile duct clearance, the small but significant risk of potentially lethal haemorrhage suggests that its use should be reserved for patients in whom other non-operative methods have failed or are inappropriate.  (+info)

Reoperation after cholecystectomy. The role of the cystic duct stump. (8/24)

The so-called "Postcholecystectomy Syndrome" may be due to various pathological biliary causes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the significance of the cystic duct stump syndrome and if so, how often a long (greater than 1.5 cm) cystic duct stump was an indication for reoperation on the bile ducts after cholecystectomy in our patients. Three hundred and twenty two patients underwent a second operation on the bile ducts after cholecystectomy in the last ten years. In 35 patients (10.8%) a striking findings was a long cystic duct stump (greater than 1.5 cm). In 24 of these patients, a pathological finding, in addition to the long cystic duct stump, was found on exploration. Out of these 24 patients there were 14 with common bile duct stones; 6 with stenosis of the sphincter of Oddi; 3 with chronic pancreatitis and in one patient hepatitis was the cause of the symptoms. From the remaining 11 patients 8 had a stone in a partial gall bladder or cystic duct stump. One patient had a fistula between the cystic duct stump and duodenum and one a suture granuloma. There was only one patient where a 1.5 cm long cystic duct stump remnant was the only pathological finding. Four years after reoperation this patient is still suffering from the same intermittent gastrointestinal symptoms. We conclude that the cystic duct stump is hardly ever a cause for recurrent symptoms in itself. Total excision of the cystic duct does not eliminate the existence of postcholecystectomy symptoms.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the role of ultrasound-guided percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) regarding complications and outcome in the management of acute cholecystitis in patients high risk for surgery and anaesthesia and not responding to conservative management. STUDY DESIGN: Observational case series. PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY: The study was carried out at The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, from January 2003 to December 2007. METHODOLOGY: The study included patients admitted with acute cholecystitis considered unfit for immediate surgery but not responding to conservative management. Percutaneous cholecystostomy was conducted under ultrasound guidance. The studied variables included patients demographics, co-morbid, ultrasound findings of biliary tree, indication for percutaneous cholecystostomy, its route, complication during or after procedure, patients clinical outcome (upto 48 hours) and 30 days follow-up. Those with incomplete medical record and follow-up were excluded. Data were
Acute cholecystitis is a frequent cause of general surgical admissions with a mortality risk that is related to the age of the Patient. Percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) has been used as a bridging technique while awaiting resolution of sepsis. We evaluated the outcome of our study population following percutaneous cholecystostomy for acute cholecystitis due to benign etiologies. Methods: Retrospective review of Patients undergoing PC from January 1988 to December 2008. Patients were reviewed for demographic features, co-morbidity, resolution of symptoms, hospital stay, outcome, complications and ASA class. Results: 62 Patients underwent PC for acute cholecystitis. 49 Patients had calculous cholecystitis. 61% (n = 38) were ≥ 60 years old. 92% had resolution of symptoms within 48 h, and 8% had partial or no resolution. 84% had a decline in total leucocyte counts. The mean hospital stay was 10.6 days and 30-day mortality was 15%. 69% Patients had no post-procedure complication. Of the remainder, 1

Project: Multisociety research collaboration: timing of cholecystectomy following cholecystostomy drainage for acute cholecystitis Authors: Konstantinos Spaniolas, MD, Daniel Dante Yeh, MD, Amanda K Arrington, MD, Todd W Costantini, MD Background:. Biliary disease is a common surgical disease, and laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the most common and preferred strategy for the management of acute cholecystitis. Despite this, for patients who present with unfavorable systemic or local conditions, percutaneous cholecystostomy drainage is an acceptable temporizing measure. However, the rates of conversion to open cholecystectomy and associated biliary tract injury have remained significant following cholecystostomy tube drainage. In the latest Tokyo guidelines, the optimal timing of cholecystectomy following cholecystostomy drainage has been identified as an important future research question.(1) Specifically, small cohort studies (less than 100 patients each) provide insufficient information about ...

Bedside Percutaneous Cholecystostomy. By Michelle Maneevese, Rahul Sheth, Syed Aziz-Ur Rahman and Joshua Kuban. Although percutaneous cholecystostomy historically is an alternative to cholecystectomy, it is typically performed as a bridge to gallbladder removal. As a low mortality procedure, it proves itself a valuable tool in morbid patients such as the elderly and the critically ill who present with acute cholecystitis and as an alternate route for biliary access. In high-risk patients, PC can be performed at the patients bedside in patients who are too unstable to be transported outside the ICU. PC is performed using ultrasound, CT, or fluoroscopic guidance; however, bedside PC can only be performed using ultrasound. Ultrasound is readily available and portable and allows for real-time imaging. A 2010 study performed by Donkol et al. demonstrated success rates for CT (93%), US (46%), and fluoroscopy (62%). Though US had the lowest success rate, it remains the only option for those critically ...
The management of gallstone disease in the elderly and critically ill is often more challenging because these patients experience a high incidence of cholelithiasis complications [24], and PC has been described as a safe alternative treatment option for AC in elderly or critically ill patients [1, 3, 13, 17]. Our findings confirm that most patients who undergo PC were elderly or critically ill. For instance, the proportion of PC patients aged 70 years or older was significantly higher than the proportion of CCS patients in this age group (61.52% for PC vs. 25.31% for CCS, p , 0.001) (Table 1). Moreover, the proportion of patients with a CCI score of 1 or more was higher among the patients who underwent PC than that among the patients who underwent CCS (50.88% for PC vs. 30.16% for CCS, p , 0.001), and the proportion of patients who underwent PC with AC cholelithiasis complications was higher than the proportion of CCS patients (67.42% for PC vs. 32.61% for CCS, p , 0.001) (Table 1)..

As the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) disseminates across the United States, more routine preoperative testing is going to expose infected patients with no or mild pneumonia symptoms. Currently, little is known regarding the true consequences of general anesthesia in COVID-positive (COVID+) patients. Surgeons are going to face challenging decisions regarding whether or not to operate for non-elective cases requiring general anesthesia when non-operative treatment options exist. Patients with acute appendicitis are usually treated with an operation to remove the appendix, but they can also be initially treated with antibiotics and have an operation at a later date. Similarly, patients with acute cholecystitis are usually treated with an operation to remove the gallbladder, but they can be treated with antibiotics and a percutaneous cholecystostomy tube (a tube that going through the skin to drain the gallbladder) and have an operation at a later date. However, patients managed without ...

John Benjamin Murphy, born John Murphy (December 21, 1857 in Appleton, Wisconsin - August 11, 1916 Mackinac Island, Michigan), was an American physician and abdominal surgeon noted for advocating early surgical intervention in appendicitis appendectomy, and several eponyms: Murphys button, Murphy drip, Murphys punch, Murphys test, and Murphy-Lane bone skid. He is best remembered for the eponymous clinical sign that is used in evaluating patients with acute cholecystitis. His career spanned general surgery, orthopedics, neurosurgery, and cardiothoracic surgery, which helped him to gain international prominence in the surgical profession. Mayo Clinic co-founder William James Mayo called him the surgical genius of our generation. Over the course of his career he was renowned as a surgeon, a clinician, a teacher, an innovator, and an author. In addition to general surgical operations, such as appendectomy, cholecystostomy, bowel resection for intestinal obstruction, and mastectomy, he performed ...

Provided appropriate personnel and monitoring devices are available, as a general rule, the safest and best place to perform an IR procedure is unquestionably in the IR suite. Some very straightforward procedures such as drainage of a large, superficial abscess can be done at bedside but there are significant disadvantages to initiating IR therapy in the ICU. First, the safety and effectiveness of nearly all IR procedures are predicated on high-quality imaging. In many procedures, more than one imaging modality is used in an IR suite to provide the largest margin of safety. For example, when cholecystostomy is performed in the IR suite, the gallbladder is punctured using ultrasound (US) guidance and the remainder of the procedure is completed using fluoroscopic guidance. While it is possible to perform the procedure using only US guidance at bedside, sonographic visualization of needles, wires, dilators, and tubes may be limited, particularly in large patients. Portable fluoroscopy units are ...

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].

Pancreatitis was defined clinically as constant epigastric pain associated with elevation of the serum lipase to greater than three times the upper reference value (177 U/l) and no other identified cause of abdominal pain. Of 356 patients with first episodes of acute pancreatitis, 259 had pancreatitis that was ultimately associated with biliary lithiasis based on abdominal ultrasound (n = 236), positive endoscopic retrograde pancreotography (n = 11), surgical pathology report (n = 11), or cholecystostomy (n = 1). Ninety-seven patients had no identified stones during the study period. Cholecystectomy was performed in 235/259 at the time of admission for pancreatitis.

The internists role in liver biopsy should be more than securing a plug of tissue and reading the pathologists report a few days later. If the procedure is to be of maximal usefulness, the clinician must look at the slides himself, review the microscopic picture with his pathologist, and attempt to correlate the histologic findings with the clinical picture. Without this sort of cooperative approach liver biopsy specimens are more likely to be of little help or even misleading.

In the operating room, the concept of supranormal oxygen transport values as a therapeutic goal has been validated in high-risk surgical patients. Several studies have shown that perioperative oxygen delivery maximization (which is proportional to cardiac output, hemoglobin and arterial oxygen saturation) in high-risk surgical patients decreases the length of stay in the ICU and in hospital, while decreasing morbidity and mortality. Moreover, several studies have demonstrated that perioperative cardiac output maximization is able to decrease the length of hospital stay and ICU admissions, and may influence long-term outcome.40 Most of these studies used colloid titration to increase cardiac output by leading patients to the plateau of the Frank-Starling curve. Cardiac output maximization was performed using cardiac output monitoring (the plateau of the Frank-Starling curve is achieved when cardiac output no longer increases after fluid challenge). However, a recent survey among North American ...
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
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.. ...

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.

The development of postoperative organ failures severely affects the prognosis of surgical patients, and substantially increases the utilization of resources and the costs of care. The presence of tissue hypoxia is particularly common and likely results from an impairment of the adaptive mechanisms of myocardial function, leading to an inappropriately low cardiac output and from the effects of inflammatory mediators. Importantly, tissue hypoxia can be detected early. Indeed, hypoxic tissues will compensate the hypoperfusion by increasing oxygen extraction (O2ER) over a threshold value, a change that will also be reflected by a decreased venous oxygen saturation, and if uncompensated by lactic acidosis. Hence, the use of oxygen extraction calculated from arterial and central venous oxygen saturation as a therapeutic goal is appropriate to monitor goal-directed hemodynamic strategies, as it reflects the balance between oxygen delivery and consumption. In place of O2ER or its surrogate, mixed ...

The additional value of perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis in preventing infectious complications after emergency cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis is a much-debated subject in the surgical community. Evidence-based guidelines are lacking, and consequently the use of antibiotic prophylaxis varies greatly among surgeons and hospitals. Recently, high-level evidence became available demonstrating that postoperative antibiotic prophylaxis in patients with acute cholecystitis does not reduce the risk of infectious complications. Preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis in relation to the risk of infectious complications, however, has never been studied. The PEANUTS II trial is a randomized, controlled, multicenter, open-label noninferiority trial whose aim is to determine the utility of preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis in patients undergoing emergency cholecystectomy for acute calculous cholecystitis. Patients with mild or moderate acute cholecystitis, as defined according the Tokyo Guidelines, will be
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 ...

Cholecystitis is defined as inflammation of the gallbladder that occurs most commonly because of an obstruction of the cystic duct from cholelithiasis. Ninety percent of cases involve stones in the cystic duct (ie, calculous cholecystitis), with the other 10% of cases representing acalculous cholecystitis.

The digital rectal examination is a relatively simple medical procedure. The patient undresses and is then placed in a position where the anus is accessible (lying on the side, squatting on the examination table, bent over it, or lying down with feet in stirrups). If the patient is lying on his/her side, the physician will usually have him/her bring one or both legs up to his/her chest. If the patient bends over the examination table or the back of a chair, the physician will have him place his elbows on the table and squat down slightly. If the patient uses the supine position, the physician will ask the patient to slide down to the end of the examination table until his/her buttocks are positioned just beyond the end and then place his/her feet in the stirrups. The physician spreads the buttocks apart and will usually examine the external area (anus and perineum) for any abnormalities such as hemorrhoids, lumps, or rashes. Then, as the patient relaxes and bears down (as if having a bowel ...
Partially digested food starts to arrive in the small intestine as semi-liquid chyme, one hour after it is eaten.[citation needed] The stomach is half empty after an average of 1.2 hours.[31] After four or five hours the stomach has emptied.[32] In the small intestine, the pH becomes crucial; it needs to be finely balanced in order to activate digestive enzymes. The chyme is very acidic, with a low pH, having been released from the stomach and needs to be made much more alkaline. This is achieved in the duodenum by the addition of bile from the gall bladder combined with the bicarbonate secretions from the pancreatic duct and also from secretions of bicarbonate-rich mucus from duodenal glands known as Brunner's glands. The chyme arrives in the intestines having been released from the stomach through the opening of the pyloric sphincter. The resulting alkaline fluid mix neutralises the gastric acid which would damage the lining of the intestine. The mucus component lubricates the walls of the ...
... or hepatobiliary scintigraphy is scintigraphy of the hepatobiliary tract, including the gallbladder and bile ducts. The image produced by this type of medical imaging, called a cholescintigram, is also known by other names depending on which radiotracer is used, such as HIDA scan, PIPIDA scan, DISIDA scan, or BrIDA scan. Cholescintigraphic scanning is a nuclear medicine procedure to evaluate the health and function of the gallbladder and biliary system. A radioactive tracer is injected through any accessible vein and then allowed to circulate to the liver, where it is excreted into the bile ducts and stored by the gallbladder[1] until released into the duodenum. In the absence of gallbladder disease, the gallbladder is visualized within 1 hour of the injection of the radioactive tracer. If the gallbladder is not visualized within 4 hours after the injection, this indicates either cholecystitis or cystic duct obstruction, such as by cholelithiasis (gallstone formation).[2] This ...
... is a common medical procedure in which an instrument called a proctoscope (also known as a rectoscope, although the latter may be a bit longer) is used to examine the anal cavity, rectum, or sigmoid colon. A proctoscope is a short, straight, rigid, hollow metal tube, and usually has a small light bulb mounted at the end. It is approximately 5 inches or 15 cm long, while a rectoscope is approximately 10 inches or 25 cm long.[1] During proctoscopy, the proctoscope is lubricated and inserted into the rectum, and then the obturator is removed, allowing an unobstructed view of the interior of the rectal cavity. This procedure is normally done to inspect for hemorrhoids or rectal polyps and might be mildly uncomfortable as the proctoscope is inserted further into the rectum. Modern fibre-optic proctoscopes allow more extensive observation with less discomfort. ...
An upper gastrointestinal series, also called an upper gastrointestinal study or contrast radiography of the upper gastrointestinal tract, is a series of radiographs used to examine the gastrointestinal tract for abnormalities. A contrast medium, usually a radiocontrast agent such as barium sulfate mixed with water, is ingested or instilled into the gastrointestinal tract, and X-rays are used to create radiographs of the regions of interest. The barium enhances the visibility of the relevant parts of the gastrointestinal tract by coating the inside wall of the tract and appearing white on the film. This in combination with other plain radiographs allows for the imaging of parts of the upper gastrointestinal tract such as the pharynx, larynx, esophagus, stomach, and small intestine such that the inside wall lining, size, shape, contour, and patency are visible to the examiner. With fluoroscopy, it is also possible to visualize the functional movement of examined organs such as swallowing, ...
Weight loss surgery in adults is associated with relatively large risks and complications, compared to other treatments for obesity.[19] The likelihood of major complications from weight-loss surgery is 4%.[20] "Sleeve gastrectomy had the lowest complication and reoperation rates of the three (main weight-loss surgery) procedures.....The percentage of procedures requiring reoperations due to complications was 15.3 percent for the gastric band, 7.7 percent for gastric bypass and 1.5 percent for sleeve gastrectomy" - American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery[21] As the rate of complications appears to be reduced when the procedure is performed by an experienced surgeon, guidelines recommend that surgery be performed in dedicated or experienced units.[5] It has been observed that the rate of leaks was greater in low volume centres whereas high volume centres showed a lesser leak rate. Leak rates have now globally decreased to a mean of 1-5%. Metabolic bone disease manifesting as ...
Hemorrhoids are normal vascular cushions found in the anal canal. 15% of a human's continence mechanism is attributed to the hemorrhoidal plexus. When a person coughs, for instance, the hemorrhoids will engorge with blood and increase one's ability to hold gas and stool. They are termed internal and external based on their positioning to an embryological line termed the pectinate line. Hemorrhoids above the pectinate line are considered "internal" and those below it "external".[2] Hemorrhoids are fed by arteries and drained by veins. The arterial blood supply is based on the superior rectal (hemorrhoidal) artery. Just as veins in the leg weaken and become prominent, hemorrhoidal veins also may become varicose, resulting in internal hemorrhoids or "piles". Internal hemorrhoids are divided into four grades. Grade I hemorrhoids are composed of prominent vessels, without protrusion. Grade II hemorrhoids demonstrate prolapse upon straining, with spontaneous reduction. Grade III hemorrhoids ...
The test is performed at the time of gastroscopy. A biopsy of mucosa is taken from the antrum of the stomach, and is placed into a medium containing urea and an indicator such as phenol red. The urease produced by H. pylori hydrolyzes urea to ammonia, which raises the pH of the medium, and changes the color of the specimen from yellow (NEGATIVE) to red (POSITIVE). Among different kinds of rapid urease tests (liquid-based, gel-based, dry cool) there is a design type with single-layer sensitive element - a layer impregnated simultaneously with urea and an indicator composition. Such a design bears the risk of false-positive result due to the pH value of the gastric biopsy when it is placed on the sensitive element. Excessive salivation and alkaline bile reflux into the stomach can shift the pH value of the biopsy of the stomach towards alkaline. Drugs that reduce the acidity of the stomach, also contribute to false positive results resulting from the alkalization. In each of these cases, the pH of ...
After completion of surgery, the patient is transferred to the post anesthesia care unit and closely monitored. When the patient is judged to have recovered from the anesthesia, he/she is either transferred to a surgical ward elsewhere in the hospital or discharged home. During the post-operative period, the patient's general function is assessed, the outcome of the procedure is assessed, and the surgical site is checked for signs of infection. There are several risk factors associated with postoperative complications, such as immune deficiency and obesity. Obesity has long been considered a risk factor for adverse post-surgical outcomes. It has been linked to many disorders such as obesity hypoventilation syndrome, atelectasis and pulmonary embolism, adverse cardiovascular effects, and wound healing complications.[11] If removable skin closures are used, they are removed after 7 to 10 days post-operatively, or after healing of the incision is well under way. It is not uncommon for surgical ...
The primary advantage of duodenal switch (DS) surgery is that its combination of moderate intake restriction with substantial calorie malabsorption results in a higher percentage of excess weight loss versus a purely restrictive gastric bypass for all individuals [2] In a Systemic Meta Analysis of the weight loss surgical procedures Buckwald et al.[3] Type 2 diabetics have had a 98% "cure"[4] (i.e. became euglycemic) almost immediately following surgery which is due to the metabolic effect from the intestine switch. The results are so favorable that some surgeons in Europe are performing the "switch" or intestinal surgery on non-obese patients for the benefits of curing the diabetes. Novel operations are geared toward the treatment of diabetes and not necessarily to induce weight loss. Among the most prominent of these operations are the duodenal-jejunal bypass and ileal transposition where duodenal switch is a part of the operation.[5] The following observations were reported on the resolution ...
During virtual colonoscopy it is not possible to take tissue samples (biopsy) or remove polyps, so a conventional colonoscopy must be performed if abnormalities are found.[7] Also, VC does not show as much detail as a conventional colonoscopy, so polyps smaller than between 2 and 10 millimeters in diameter may not show up on the images.[8] Furthermore virtual colonoscopy performed with CT exposes the patient to ionizing radiation, on the order of a milligray.[9] Some research has demonstrated that ultra-low dose VC can be just as effective in demonstrating bowel disease due to the great difference in x-ray absorption between air and the tissue comprising the inner wall of the colon. Optical colonoscopy is taken as the "gold standard" for colorectal cancer screening by the vast majority of the medical and research communities. However, some radiologists recommend VC as a preferred approach to colorectal screening. Virtual colonoscopy is favored by some professionals because it permits complete ...
Screening methods for colon cancer depend on detecting either precancerous changes such as certain kinds of polyps or on finding early and thus more treatable cancer. The extent to which screening procedures reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal cancer or mortality depends on the rate of precancerous and cancerous disease in that population. gFOBT (guaiac fecal occult blood test) and flexible sigmoidoscopy screening have each shown benefit in randomized clinical trials.[citation needed] Evidence for other colon cancer screening tools such as iFOBT (immunochemical fecal occult blood test) or colonoscopy is substantial and guidelines have been issued by several advisory groups but does not include randomized studies. In 2009 the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) suggest that colon cancer screening modalities that are also directly preventive by removing precursor lesions should be given precedence, and prefer a colonoscopy every 10 years in average-risk individuals, beginning at age ...
During the procedure the patient is often given sedation intravenously, employing agents such as fentanyl or midazolam. Although meperidine (Demerol) may be used as an alternative to fentanyl, the concern of seizures has relegated this agent to second choice for sedation behind the combination of fentanyl and midazolam. The average person will receive a combination of these two drugs, usually between 25 and 100 µg IV fentanyl and 1-4 mg IV midazolam. Sedation practices vary between practitioners and nations; in some clinics in Norway, sedation is rarely administered.[41][42] Some endoscopists are experimenting with, or routinely use, alternative or additional methods such as nitrous oxide[43][44] and propofol,[45] which have advantages and disadvantages relating to recovery time (particularly the duration of amnesia after the procedure is complete), patient experience, and the degree of supervision needed for safe administration. This sedation is called "twilight anesthesia". For some patients ...
Repairs that utilize mesh are usually the first recommendation for the vast majority of patients including those that undergo laparoscopic repair.[4] Procedures that employ mesh are the most commonly performed as they have been able to demonstrate greater results as compared to non-mesh repairs.[11] Approaches utilizing mesh have been able to demonstrate faster return to usual activity, lower rates of persistent pain, shorter hospital stays, and a lower likelihood that the hernia will recur.[16][4][17][18][19][20] Options for mesh include either synthetic or biologic. Synthetic mesh provides the option of using "heavyweight" as well as "lightweight" variations according to the diameter and number of mesh fibers.[21] Lightweight mesh has been shown to have fewer complications related to the mesh itself than it's heavyweight counterparts.[22] It was additionally correlated with lower rates of chronic pain while sharing the same rates of hernia recurrence as compared to heavyweight ...
