Pulmonary lymphangitis carcinomatosa and acute pancreatitis: a rare presentation of choledochal cyst. (1/107)

Pulmonary lymphangitis carcinomatosa is an unusual cause of death in a young adult. This case describes an apparently healthy young woman who presented with severe acute pancreatitis, which is a recognized complication of a choledochal cyst. Autopsy examination revealed advanced malignancy with poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma penetrating the wall of the choledochal cyst and metastatic adenocarcinoma in the lymph nodes, lungs and kidneys. This case emphasises the unusual presentation of a choledochal cyst with acute pancreatitis and the aggressive nature of malignancy associated with this congenital anomaly.  (+info)

Choledochal cyst associated with polycystic kidney disease: report of a case. (2/107)

We report a very rare case of type I choledochal cyst associated with a polycystic kidney disease. A 48-year-old female had been dependent on hemodialysis for chronic renal failure due to polycystic kidney disease and was incidentally diagnosed to have a dilated common bile duct by an ultrasonography. An endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography showed a spindle-shaped, dilated common bile duct (type I choledochal cyst) without visualization of the pancreatic duct. She underwent a resection of the choledochal cyst. Intraoperative cholangiography showed no reflux of contrast medium into the pancreatic duct. Amylase level of the aspirated bile from the bile duct was not elevated. In the case of choledochal cyst combined with renal fibropolycystic disease, pancreaticobiliary maljunction may not contribute to the etiology of choledochal cyst. In such cases, management of choledochal cyst is still controversial and requires further discussion.  (+info)

Dilatation of the biliary tree in children: sonographic diagnosis and its clinical significance. (3/107)

We evaluated sonographically 162 children who met the criteria for biliary tract dilatation in the past 18 years. Of these, 131 patients were diagnosed as having anomalous dilatations of the biliary tree (including 112 with choledochal cysts and 19 with biliary duct dilatation and biliary atresia). Biliary tract dilatations in the other 31 patients were due to secondary causes or normal variants. All cases of intrahepatic biliary tree dilatation and those with both intra- and extrabiliary duct dilatations were anomalous. In 117 cases of extrahepatic biliary tract dilatation only, the mean diameter was widest in cases of choledochal cyst (21.4 +/- 12.1 mm, compared with cases of biliary tract dilatation with biliary atresia (10 +/- 2.4 mm), secondary biliary duct dilatation (8.5 +/- 1.5 mm), and normal variants (4.4 +/- 1.2 mm) (P < 0.001). Of the 43 infants with biliary tree dilatation, 24 (56%) had choledochal cysts and 19 (44%) had biliary tract dilatation associated with biliary atresia. Excluding cases associated with biliary atresia, the accuracy of diagnosing choledochal cysts in extrahepatic biliary tract dilatation was 71% and 97% using cutoffs of 7 mm and 10 mm as the minimum diameter, respectively.  (+info)

Congenital choledochal cyst with pancreatitis. (4/107)

OBJECTIVE: To understand the relationship among congenital choledochal cyst, anomalous junction of pancreaticobiliary duct (AJPBD) and pancreatitis. METHODS: 25 children with choledochal cyst treated in our hospital were included in this study. Their ages ranged from 2 months to 14 years. Intraoperative cholangiography was performed in 24 children. Pancreatic samples obtained from the head and body of the pancreas at operation were observed under light and electron microscope. Serum amylase was analyzed one week before and after operation respectively. Bile amylase in the cyst and gallbladder was measured at operation. RESULTS: The incidence of AJPBD was 70%. Inflammatory cell infiltration and fibrous hyperplasia were seen in the pancreatic specimens of 5 children, of whom 4 had AJPBD. No ultrastructural changes were found in 2 children without AJPBD, while different changes were seen in 6 with AJPBD, including those showing no pathological changes under light microscope. All the changes became more severe as the age of the patient increased. The bile and serum amylase levels were higher in children with AJPBD than those without AJPBD (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Congenital choledochal cyst has a close relationship with AJPBD and pancreatitis. Pancreatic pathological changes have a long and chronic course from ultrastructural changes to macroscopic changes for the developing of pancreatitis.  (+info)

Diagnosis and treatment of congenital choledochal cyst: 20 years' experience in China. (5/107)

AIM: To summarize the experience of diagnosis and treatment of congenital choledochal cyst in the past 20 years (1980-2000). METHODS: The clinical data of 108 patients admitted from 1980 to 2000 were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: Abdominal pain,jaundice and abdominal mass were presented in most child cases. Clinical symptoms in adult cases were non-specific, resulting in delayed diagnosis frequently. Fifty-seven patients (52.7%) had coexistent pancreatiobiliary disease. Carcinoma of the biliary duct occurred in 18 patients (16.6%). Ultrasonic examination was undertaken in 94 cases, ERCP performed in 46 cases and CT in 71 cases. All of the cases were correctly diagnosed before operation. Abnormal pancreatobiliary duct junction was found in 39 patients. Before 1985 the diagnosis and classification of congenital choledochal cyst were established by ultrasonography preoperatively and confirmed during operation, the main procedures were internal drainage by cyst enterostomy. After 1985, the diagnosis was established by ERCP and CT, and cystectomy with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy was the conventional procedures.In 1994, we reported a new and simplified operative procedure in order to reduce the risk of choledochal cyst malignancy. Postoperative complication was mainly retrograde infection of biliary tract, which could be controlled by the administration of antibiotics, there was no perioperative mortality. CONCLUSION: The concept in diagnosis and treatment of congenital choledochal cyst has obviously been changed greatly.CT and ERCP were of great help in the classification of the disease.Currently, cystectomy with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is strongly recommended as the choice for patients with type I and type IV cysts. Piggyback orthotopic liver transplantation is indicated in type V cysts (Caroli's disease) with frequently recurrent cholangitis.  (+info)

Proliferative activity of bile from congenital choledochal cyst patients. (6/107)

AIM: To explore the potential carcinogenicity of bile from congenital choledochal cyst (CCC) patients and the mechanism of the carcinogenesis in congenital choledochal cyst patients. METHODS: 20 bile samples from congenital choledochal cyst patients and 10 normal control bile samples were used for this study. The proliferative effect of bile was measured by using Methabenzthiazuron (MTT) assay; Cell cycle and apoptosis were analyzed by using flow cytometry (FCM), and the PGE(2) levels in the supernatant of cultured cholangiocarcinoma cells were quantitated by enzyme-linked immunoabsorbent assay (ELISA). RESULTS: CCC bile could significantly promote the proliferation of human cholangiocarcinoma QBC939 cells compared with normal bile (P=0.001) and negative control group (P=0.002), and the proliferative effect of CCC bile could be abolished by addition of cyclooxygenase-2 specific inhibitor celecoxib (20 microM). The QBC939 cells proliferative index was increased significantly after treated with 1 % bile from CCC patient (P=0.008) for 24 h, the percentage of S phase (29.48+/-3.27)% was increased remarkably (P<0.001) compared with normal bile (11.72+/-2.70) %, and the percentage of G0/G1 phase (54.19+/-9.46) % was decreased remarkably (P=0.042) compared with normal bile (69.16+/-10.88) %, however, bile from CCC patient had no significant influence on apoptosis of QBC939 cells (P=0.719). CONCLUSION: Bile from congenital choledochal cyst patients can promote the proliferation of human cholangiocarcinoma QBC939 cells via COX-2 and PGE(2) pathway.  (+info)

Congenital choledochal dilatation with emphasis on pathophysiology of the biliary tract. (7/107)

Of 37 patients with congenital choledochal dilatation, aged 8 days to 12 years, who had undergone excision with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy, 26 patients could be analyzed for morphologic abnormalities and pathophysiology of the biliary tract. Of the 26 patients with congenital choledochal dilatation, 25 (96.2%) had an abnormal choledochopancreaticoductal junction. Of the 12 patients with cystic-type choledochal dilatation, 10 had the C-P type of abnormal choledochopancreaticoductal junction, and of the 13 patients with fusiform-type choledochal dilatation, nine had the P-C type. The amylase levels in the choledochal cyst and the gallbladder were elevated regardless of the form of choledochal dilatation. An adenocarcinoma in a cystic choledochal dilatation was found in one child. Therefore, longstanding inflammation of the biliary tract caused by the reflux of pancreatic juice might be one of the factors in carcinogenesis in the biliary tract. This free reflux of pancreatic juice was demonstrated not only by amylase levels in the biliary tract but also by intraoperative biliary manometry. This reflux might be explained by the lack of sphincter function at the junction of the common bile and pancreatic ducts.  (+info)

Procedures for congenital choledochal cysts and curative effect analysis in adults. (8/107)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the procedures and timing of operation as well as long-term postoperative effect of congenital choledochal cysts (CCC) in adults. METHODS: The procedures and timing of operation, effective rate, re-operation rate and incidence of carcinoma after operation for 70 adult patients with CCC from January 1980 to June 1999 were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: The re-operation rate of external drainage was 86% (6/7). The effective rate of internal drainage was significantly lower than that of cyst resection (3/10 vs 45/49, chi2=20.94, P<0.001). The re-operation rate and incidence of carcinoma of internal drainage were higher than those of cyst resection (5/10 vs 3/49, chi2=13.64, P<0.001 and 3/10 vs 3/49, chi2=5.18, P<0.025). The reoperation rate of emergency surgery was higher than that of selective operation (8/10 vs 6/56, chi2=24.37, P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: External drainage should be the first-aid measure and the therapy of choice on emergency basis. Internal drainage should never be attempted. Cyst resection with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is recommended as the treatment of choice in selective operation.  (+info)

Choledochal cysts (a.k.a. bile duct cyst) are congenital conditions involving cystic dilatation of bile ducts. They are uncommon in western countries but not as rare in East Asian nations like Japan and China. Most patients have symptoms in the first year of life. It is rare for symptoms to be undetected until adulthood, and usually adults have associated complications. The classic triad of intermittent abdominal pain, jaundice, and a right upper quadrant abdominal mass is found only in minority of patients. In infants, choledochal cysts usually lead to obstruction of the bile ducts and retention of bile. This leads to jaundice and an enlarged liver. If the obstruction is not relieved, permanent damage may occur to the liver - scarring and cirrhosis - with the signs of portal hypertension (obstruction to the flow of blood through the liver) and ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen). There is an increased risk of cancer in the wall of the cyst. In older individuals, choledochal cysts are ...

© SAGE Publications. Choledochal cyst is a cystic dilation of the biliary tree that can increase the risk of malignancy in bile ducts and the gallbladder. These are usually lined by bile duct epithelium, which may undergo intestinal and squamous metaplasia. This is the first report of clinically diagnosed type II choledochal cyst that is entirely lined by metaplastic stratified squamous epithelium, unlike most other cysts, which are histologically lined by bile duct epithelium. This observation can potentially explain the underlying pathogenic mechanism of rare reports of squamous cell carcinomas arising in bile duct systems.

The examination of brush cytology specimens has become an established diagnostic technique in the investigation of patients with suspected pancreatic, bile duct, gallbladder, and ampullary tumours. We have reviewed 448 consecutive brush samples obtained from 406 patients and correlated the findings with pathological and clinical outcomes. To our knowledge, this is the largest series of pancreatico-biliary brush cytology specimens yet reported.. As with previous studies, we found that the brush cytology technique produced cellular samples of good quality in most instances. Only 26 of 489 (5.3%) specimens were considered inadequate for diagnosis. Seven patients with initial unsatisfactory cytology samples underwent repeat endoscopy and an adequate specimen was obtained in six cases. The number of unsatisfactory specimens has not been specifically noted in many previous studies although rates of 0-6% were documented in three series.9, 11, 18 There was no clear correlation between unsatisfactory ...

MILLAR, A J W. Solving difficult hepatobiliary problems in children. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2012, vol.102, n.11, pp.872-875. ISSN 2078-5135.. Most difficult hepatobiliary (HPB) problems in infancy and childhood result from pathological anatomical/mechanical derangements; therefore, surgery on the liver and bile ducts depends on a detailed understanding of liver structure, function and repair response to injury or disease. The surgeon must be aware of the very diverse range of anatomical variations. Perhaps key to improving the outcome of paediatric HPB surgery is centralised management and associating this with a paediatric liver transplant programme, which adds expertise and, frequently, the added benefit of adult HPB surgical input to paediatric surgical care. In the United Kingdom, this has resulted in excellent measurable benefit, particularly in the management of biliary atresia, but also of choledochal cysts, portal hypertension and liver tumours. These conditions are briefly ...

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree, sometimes referred to as boytroid rhabdomyosarcoma, only accounts for 0.04% of childhood neoplasms (1). It accounts for 1% of all embryonal rhabdomyosarcomas (1). The median age of presentation is 3 years with a slight male preponderance (2). The tumor often exceeds 8 centimeters at the time of discovery and can invade the duodenum (2, 3). It can arise from almost anywhere along the biliary tree including liver, intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ducts, gallbladder, or ampulla (4). It has also been reported to arise from hepatic and choledochal cysts (4)..

We report a case of choledochal cyst accompanied by an adenoid gallbladder carcinoma, in an adult patient. Diagnosis was complicated by coexisting primary hyperparathyroidism. In view of the pathological laboratory tests, which suggested acute pancreatitis, the visualized cystic abdominal mass was regarded as a pancreatic pseudocyst. Neither ultrasound nor CT could clearly define the cysts origin. Laparotomy, performed later because of deteriorating clinical condition, showed an extended carcinoma which was already invading the liver. Only palliative resection and choledochocystojejunostomy was technically feasible. To prevent the development of malignancies in dilated bile ducts, early treatment by cyst resection and reconstruction of the extrahepatic biliary system is recommended, especially in younger patients. Wir berichten über den Fall einer Patientin, bei der im Zusammenhang mit einer Choledochuszyste ein adenoides Gallenblasenkarzinom entstanden war. Die Diagnosefindung war durch das
My Son Master ShivCharan aged 2 months was suffering from Stomach-ache and vomiting, where he was unable to express the pain in that teething age.

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 ...
0043] As seen in FIG. 2, the string 130 has a first end 130a freely disposed outside of the surgical apparatus 10, and a second end 130b connected to an inner wall of the narrow portion 124. In one embodiment, the second end 130b is disposed interiorly of the narrow portion 124 and attached to the apex end 124b. As seen in FIG. 4, a first force F1 acting on the first end 130a of the string 130 induces a second force F2 on the apex end 124b of the surgical apparatus 10. As seen in FIG. 5, the force F2 causes the apex end 124b to invert and propagate in the proximal direction through the longitudinal passage 123 of the flexible member 120, and subsequently through the longitudinal passage 111 of the anchor member 110. Due to the flexible nature of the flexible member 120, the flexible member 120 is inverted under the application of force F2. Once the flexible member 120 is completely inverted as illustrated in FIG. 5, the force F2 or the force F1 which induced the force F2 is ...

A sole component for footwear combining the desirable response characteristics of a fluid filled chamber and an elastomeric material. The chamber can be formed as a single bladder chamber in contact with an elastomeric midsole, or a single chamber formed by a sealing a void in elastomeric material. The interface between the chamber and elastomeric material is sloped and gradual so that the shape of the chamber and its placement in a midsole determine the combination of response characteristics in the sole component. The chamber has a relatively simple shape with one axis of symmetry with a rounded portion and a narrow portion.

Bile duct related cancer is a condition quite commonly seen among Asians. Predisposing conditions for primary bile duct cancer include recurrent infections and autoimmune diseases such as recurrent pyogenic cholangitis (RPC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) as well as congenital problem such as choledochal cyst. Peri-ampullary tumour, pancreatic tumour and metastatic tumours with bile duct compression are other causes of bile duct obstruction. As many of these tumours are discovered at a late stage, curative treatment is usually not feasible. Palliative endoscopic stenting of the obstructed biliary system remains the treatment of choice for the majority.. The main problem with endoscopic stenting of the biliary system is the short stent patency period. There are some reports on modifications to plastic biliary stenting method in recent years including changes in stent designs, use of a different material or coating, administrating prophylactic antibiotics and the use of special drugs. ...
Results. Of the 74 patients investigated, 39 (52%) had BA and 35 had other causes of surgical hepatobiliary disease (Table 1); 27 (69%) BA patients and 31 (89%) non-BA patients were reviewed following the exclusion of 12 BA patients and 4 non-BA patients due to lack of sufficient data. Twenty-one (78%) BA patients had CMV positivity (IgM/IgG) on testing; 20 were IgM-positive, whereas 8 non-BA cholestatic jaundiced patients were IgM-positive (p,0.01). Two (7.5%) of 27 BA infants were HIV-exposed (born to HIV-positive mothers), whereas 7 (35%) of the non-BA group were HIV-positive (p,0.01). Both HIV-exposed BA infants were CMV-IgM-positive. Long-term outcomes of the 21 CMV-positive BA patients (non-HIV exposed) included 3 deaths and a higher rate of severe early liver damage, suggesting a poorer outcome in CMV-affected patients.. Discussion. The surgical causes of prolonged neonatal jaundice include BA, hypoplasia of bile ducts, inspissated bile ducts, choledochal cysts and spontaneous bile duct ...

The food that enters small intestine is in the form of liquid particles (chyme). Hydrochloride acid (HCI) that also gets into the small intestine stimulates the glands in the intestine wall to produce secretin hormone (controlling the secretion of Pancreatic juice) and cholecystokinin hormone ( controlling the secretion of bile) Pancreatic juice and bile are then transferred through choledochal duct that ends in duodenum. The breaking down resulted by pancreatic juice and bile will be absorbed by absortion cells ...
