Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope.

Promoter methylation of INK4a/ARF as detected in bile-significance for the differential diagnosis in biliary disease. (1/137)

PURPOSE: There is a need to enhance endobiliary cytotechniques by molecular marker lesions. This is of special significance for patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis, a disease predisposing for the development of cholangiocarcinoma. The INK4a/ADP ribosylation factor (ARF) locus encodes two tumor suppressor genes: p16INK4a and p14ARF. p16INK4a has been shown to be of major significance in cholangiocarcinoma. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: In an effort to evaluate the potential diagnostic role of p16INK4a and p14ARF promoter methylation in biliary disease, endoscopical obtained bile specimens of 71 patients were analyzed (26 choledocholithiasis, 6 with normal results, 23 bile duct carcinoma, 5 gall bladder carcinoma). Eleven patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis were enrolled. RESULTS: Merely 6% of specimens (2 of 32) obtained from patients without evidence for malignant biliary disease but 53.5% of malignancies (15 of 28) showed p16 promoter methylation (p14: 3 and 46.2%, respectively). The concordance of methylation rates detected in either bile or tissue specimens was high. In primary sclerosing cholangitis, a similar prevalence of methylation was detected as in malignant disease. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates: (a) a high frequency and specificity of INK4a/ARF methylation in malignant biliary disease compared with mere cholangitis; and (b) the capability to detect these alterations reliably in endoscopically obtained bile. Thus, INK4a/ARF's promoter methylation status represents a candidate marker for the endoscopic diagnosis of biliary disease.  (+info)

Cholecysto-choledochostomy plus construction of subcutaneous cholecystic tunnel in treatment of choledocholith. (2/137)

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)

Prospective evaluation of magnetic resonance cholangiography in patients with suspected common bile duct stones before laparoscopic cholecystectomy. (3/137)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the predictive value of magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) in selected patients before laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). METHODS: Patients with risk factors for common bile duct (CBD) stones scheduled for elective LC from March 1999 to May 2001, underwent MRC followed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) to detect the stones and the accuracy of MRC. Selection of suspected patients was based on clinical, ultrasonographic, and laboratory criteria. RESULTS: During a 26-month period, a total of 267 patients were studied. Seventy-eight MRC identified patients were found to have CBD stones by ERC or laparoscopic cholangiography in the study. Seven of 78 patients were misdiagnosed as having CBD stones by MRC. In this study, MRC had a sensitivity of 100%, a specificity of 96.3%, a positive predictive value of 91.8%, and a negative predictive value of 100% for the detection of common bile duct stones. CONCLUSIONS: With the use of LC, ERC is frequently performed before LC to detect CBD stones; but it is invasive with a well-documented complication rate. MRC is a simple non-invasive method for preoperative screening for CBD stones in at-risk patients. In this study if ERC had been limited to patients with a positive MRC, it would have reduced the need for ERC by 68.2%, and the complications of preoperative examination would be minimized significantly.  (+info)

Platelet activation and the protective effect of aprotinin in hepatolithiasis patients. (4/137)

OBJECTIVE: To explore platelet activation and the protective effect of aprotinin in patients with hepatolithiasis. METHODS: The count of platelets and levels of CD62P and CD63 were measured by flow cytometry in 38 patients with hepatolithiasis. Several measurements were carried out after treatment with aprotinin. RESULTS: The levels of CD62P, CD63 in patients with hepatolithiasis were higher than those in patients with cholecystolithiasis (P<0.05), but the count of platelets was lower (P<0.05). After operation, the levels of CD62P, CD63 were significantly increased in patients with hepatolithiasis, but the count of platelets was lower (P<0.05). Postoperative levels of CD62P, CD63 were significantly lower in patients treated with aprotinin than in normal controls (P<0.05); but there was no significant change in the count of platelets in the two groups. CONCLUSION: Platelet activation occurs in patients with hepatolithiasis, and may be inhibited by aprotinin.  (+info)

Management of choledocholithiasis: comparison between laparoscopic common bile duct exploration and intraoperative endoscopic sphincterotomy. (5/137)

AIM: Choledocholithiasis is present in 5 to 10 percent of patients who have cholelithiasis. In the area of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) and intraoperative endoscopic sphincterotomy (IOES) have been used to treat choledocholithiasis. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes and hospital costs of LCBDE with IOES. METHODS: Between November 1999 and October 2002, patients with choledocholithiasis undergoing LC plus LCBDE (Group A, n=45) were retrospectively compared to those undergoing LC plus IOES (Group B, n=57) at a single institution. RESULTS: Ductal stone clearance rates were equivalent for the two groups (88% versus 89%, P=0.436). The conversion rate was higher for Group B (8.8% versus 4.4%, P=0.381), as was the morbidity (12.3% versus 6.7%, P=0.336). There were no other significant differences between the two groups. The complications were mainly related to endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES), and the hospital costs were significantly increased in this subset of Group B (median, 23,910 versus 14,955 RMB yuan, P=0.03). Although hospital stay was longer in Group A (median, 7 versus 6 days, P=0.041), the patients in Group A had a significantly decreased cost of hospitalization compared with those in Group B (median, 11,362 versus 15,466 RMB yuan, P=0.000). CONCLUSION: The results demonstrate equivalent ductal stone clearance rates for the two groups. LCBDE management appears safer, and is associated with a significantly decreased hospital cost. The findings suggest LCBDE for choledocholithiasis is a better option.  (+info)

Rapid detection of K-ras mutations in bile by peptide nucleic acid-mediated PCR clamping and melting curve analysis: comparison with restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. (6/137)

BACKGROUND: Current methods for detection of K-ras gene mutations are time-consuming. We aimed to develop a one-step PCR technique using fluorescent hybridization probes and competing peptide nucleic acid oligomers to detect K-ras mutations in bile and to compare the efficacy with restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis. METHODS: Bile samples were obtained from 116 patients with biliary obstruction, including gallstones (n = 64), benign biliary strictures (n = 6), pancreatic cancer (n = 20), and cholangiocarcinoma (n = 26). The DNA was extracted and subjected to K-ras mutation analysis by real-time PCR and RFLP analysis. Mutations were confirmed by direct sequencing. The sensitivity and specificity were calculated according to the clinical results. RESULTS: The analysis time for real-time PCR was <1 h, whereas RFLP analysis took more than 2 days. With the sensor probe designed for the GAT (G12D) mutant in codon 12 of the K-ras gene, the real-time PCR method also detected the GTT (G12V) mutant. In contrast, a specific sensor probe for the TGT (G12C) mutant detected GAT (G12D), AGT (G12S), and GTT (G12V) mutants in addition to the TGT mutant. The real-time PCR assay allowed the detection of mutation in a 3000-fold excess of wild-type bile DNA. In bile, K-ras codon 12 mutations were detected in 16 of 46 malignant cases by real-time PCR with the TGT probe and 15 by RFLP analysis. All benign cases were wild type. CONCLUSION: Real-time PCR with a cysteine-specific (TGT) sensor probe can rapidly detect K-ras gene mutations in bile and diagnose malignant biliary obstruction with high specificity.  (+info)

NIH state-of-the-science statement on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for diagnosis and therapy. (7/137)

OBJECTIVE: To provide health care providers, patients, and the general public with a responsible assessment of currently available data regarding the use of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for diagnosis and therapy. PARTICIPANTS: A non-Federal, non-advocate, 13-member panel representing the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, clinical epidemiology, oncology, biostatistics, surgery, health services research, radiology, internal medicine, and the public. In addition, experts in these same fields presented data to the panel and to a conference audience of approximately 300. EVIDENCE: Presentations by experts; a systematic review of the medical literature provided by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; and an extensive bibliography of ERCP research papers, prepared by the National Library of Medicine. Scientific evidence was given precedence over clinical anecdotal experience. CONFERENCE PROCESS: Answering predefined questions, the panel drafted a statement based on the scientific evidence presented in open forum and the scientific literature. The draft statement was read in its entirety on the final day of the conference and circulated to the experts and the audience for comment. The panel then met in executive session to consider these comments and released a revised statement at the end of the conference. The statement was made available on the World Wide Web at http://consensus.nih.gov immediately after the conference. This statement is an independent report of the panel and is not a policy statement of the NIH or the Federal Government. CONCLUSIONS: In the diagnosis of choledocholithiasis, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and ERCP have comparable sensitivity and specificity. Patients undergoing cholecystectomy do not require ERCP preoperatively if there is low probability of having choledocholithiasis. Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration and postoperative ERCP are both safe and reliable in clearing common bile duct stones. ERCP with endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) and stone removal is a valuable therapeutic modality in choledocholithiasis with jaundice, dilated common bile duct, acute pancreatitis, or cholangitis. In patients with pancreatic or biliary cancer, the principal advantage of ERCP is palliation of biliary obstruction when surgery is not elected. In patients who have pancreatic or biliary cancer and who are surgical candidates, there is no established role for preoperative biliary drainage by ERCP. Tissue sampling for patients with pancreatic or biliary cancer not undergoing surgery may be achieved by ERCP, but this is not always diagnostic. ERCP is the best means to diagnose ampullary cancers. ERCP has no role in the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis except when biliary pancreatitis is suspected. In patients with severe biliary pancreatitis, early intervention with ERCP reduces morbidity and mortality compared with delayed ERCP. ERCP with appropriate therapy is beneficial in selected patients who have either recurrent pancreatitis or pancreatic pseudocysts. Patients with type I sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) respond to endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES). Patients with type II SOD should not undergo diagnostic ERCP alone. If sphincter of Oddi manometer pressures are >40 mmHg, ES is beneficial in some patients. Avoidance of unnecessary ERCP is the best way to reduce the number of complications. ERCP should be avoided if there is a low likelihood of biliary stone or stricture, especially in women with recurrent pain, a normal bilirubin, and no other objective sign of biliary disease. Endoscopists performing ERCP should have appropriate training and expertise before performing advanced procedures. With newer diagnostic imaging technologies emerging, ERCP is evolving into a predominantly therapeutic procedure.  (+info)

Acute cholecystitis and severe ischemic cardiac disease: is laparoscopy indicated? (8/137)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopy in patients with poor cardiac function has been the subject of controversy and is considered by many surgeons a relative contraindication. METHODS: We report the case of a patient who presented with acute cholecystitis and choledocholithiasis concurrent with unstable angina. Our experience in laparoscopic management of patients with calculous biliary disease and severe coronary artery disease is examined. RESULTS: The patient was managed by coronary angioplasty and stenting immediately followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy and common bile duct exploration under close invasive hemodynamic monitoring and low-pressure pneumoperitoneum. Between 1996 and 2001, 39 patients with coronary artery disease and an ASA class of III or IV underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Eight of these patients (20.5%) had common bile duct stones necessitating laparoscopic common bile duct exploration. No conversions were necessary, and no major morbidity or mortalities occurred. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and common bile duct exploration can be safely performed in patients with severe ischemic cardiac disease under close hemodynamic monitoring and a low-pressure pneumoperitoneum (10 to 12 mm Hg).  (+info)

A sphincterotome adapted to be used in the lumen of an endoscope for cutting a sphincter in a patients body using a cutting wire energized by an electrosurgical unit. The sphincterotome has a distal end segment and cutting plane orienting mechanism extending through the length of a sphincterotome tubular body between a handle assembly at the proximal end of the sphincterotome body and a distal end segment thereof for shifting the cutting plane laterally with respect to the longitudinal axis of the sphincterotome tubular body exiting the endoscope lumen. The lateral shift is in at least one lateral direction from an un-shifted position of the cutting plane with respect to the longitudinal axis whereby in use during a sphincterotomy, the cutting wire may be oriented into alignment with a particular feature of the sphincter, e.g. the twelve oclock position of the sphincter of Oddi and papilla of Vater, without having to reposition the endoscope and/or withdraw and reposition the sphincterotome in the
Although LCBDE has a crucial advantage in that it simultaneously treats cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis, thereby shortening hospital stays and reducing hospital costs, only surgeons with advanced laparoscopic skills can perform LCBDE because the procedure requires very specialized laparoscopic techniques and equipment. This study is the first to introduce V-CBD, a novel technique with several characteristics that may overcome the limitations of conventional LCBDE. First, the V-shaped incision more easily provides sufficient space for the introduction of the choledochoscope because the wall of the V-shaped incision includes not only the CBD but also the cystic duct, unlike existing techniques for conventional LCBDE. Therefore, entry of the choledochoscope and stone retrieval can be performed without difficulty, even in patients without a dilated CBD.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP, is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. It combines X-ray and the use of an endoscope-a long, flexible, lighted tube.
The incidence of biliary tract pathology is growing with an age-related trend, and progresses as the population ages. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) represents the gold standard for treatment in these cases, but evidence about its safety in the elderly is still debated. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical records of all patients aged ≥65 undergoing ERCP between July 2013 and July 2015. Of 387 ERCP cases, 363 (~ 94%) were completed entirely. The mean age of the study population (n = 363) was 79.9 years old (range 70-95), with 190 subjects aged 70-79 and 173 older than 80. We recorded demographics, Charlson Comorbidity index (CCI), American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status classification score, indication for the use of the ERCP procedure, and clinical outcomes. Then, we tested all variables to identify the potential risk factors for complications associated with the procedure. The older group (those ≥80 years old) showed significantly more patients with

Intravenous cholangiography was attempted in 26 instances (bilirubin value greater than 4.3 mg/100 ml) and was diagnostic in only four. Ultrasound, on the other hand, was diagnostic for surgical jaundice in 62 of the 75 cases (82%). In 52 of the 62 patients a cause for the extrahepatic obstruction was demonstrated: 40 had cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis, and 12 had tumors (11 pancreatic tumors, one lymphoma). In the remaining ten instances, obstruction was sonographically demonstrated but the cause was not. Of these, four patients were subsequently proven to have distal common duct stones, five had carcinoma of the pancreas and one had cholangiocarcinoma. This ...
We searched 13 electronic databases Medline, Embase and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register from inception to January 2003. Reference lists of relevant articles were hand searched and various health services research-related resources were consulted via the Internet. Search terms included population search terms such as biliary, biliary tract, bile, gallbladder, choledocholithiasis and were combined with intervention terms such as magnetic resonance imaging, MRI and non-invasive diagnostic imaging. The search strategy is described in detail elsewhere [5]. No language or study/publication-type restrictions were applied to the searches. Inclusion criteria were adult patients with suspected biliary obstruction or dilatation, as defined by the individual studies, having MRCP and ERCP for diagnostic purposes. Outcome measures included sensitivity, specificity and likelihood ratios in different patient groups, acceptability to patients and adverse effects. The ERCP test results were assumed to be ...

췌석의 치료 적응증은 복통이 있는 경우이다. 본 증례는 췌두부의 주췌관 내에 위치한 췌석에 의해 체액 흐름이 지장을 받아 췌관 내 압력이 상승하여 복통이 발생하였다고 추정된다[3]. 영상 검사에서 췌석 상류쪽 주췌관이 확장된 것이 이를 뒷받침한다고 할 수 있다. 그러나 만성 췌장염 환자에서 복통의 발생기전은 매우 다양하기 때문에 췌석이 존재한다고 해서 반드시 췌석이 복통의 원인이라고 할 수 없다. 일부 환자에서는 복통의 원인이 췌장 밖에 있어서 췌관 결석 제거 후에도 통증이 지속된다[1]. 본 증례에서는 췌석 제거후 주췌관 직경이 현저히 감소함을 확인하였으며 추적 기간 동안 더 이상 복통이 발생하지 않아서 췌석이 복통의 원인임을 확인할 수 있었다.. 2012년에 발표된 유럽소화기내시경학회의 만성 췌장염진료지침을 보면[4], 췌석 제거의 ...
Abstract • A prospective study of choledocholithiasis was performed using 110 patients with presumptive diagnoses of acute gallstone pancreatitis. The incidence of migrating and persistent bile duct stones was determined using stool screening and intraoperative cholangiography, and the clinical significance of continued stone obstruction of the papilla was investigated using ultrasound assessment of migration time and a second evaluation of prognostic signs. Pancreatic inflammation was confirmed at surgery in 51 patients, of whom only 27 had stones in the stools (n = 22) or the bile duct (n = 5), suggesting that choledocholithiasis may not be the sole triggering factor of acute gallstone pancreatitis. Neither delayed migration nor persistent stone obstruction of the papilla promoted pancreatic inflammation. (Arch Surg. 1991;126:566-568) References 1. Steer ML.

Common bile duct stone, also known as choledocholithiasis, is the presence of gallstones in the common bile duct (thus choledocho- + lithiasis). This condition causes jaundice and liver cell damage. Treatment is by cholecystectomy and ERCP. Murphys sign is commonly negative on physical examination in choledocholithiasis, helping to distinguish it from cholecystitis. Jaundice of the skin or eyes is an important physical finding in biliary obstruction. Jaundice and/or clay-colored stool may raise suspicion of choledocholithiasis or even gallstone pancreatitis. If the above symptoms coincide with fever and chills, the diagnosis of ascending cholangitis may also be considered. Greater than 70% of people with gallstones are asymptomatic and are found incidentally on ultrasound. Studies have shown that 10% of those people will develop symptoms within five years of diagnosis and 20% within 20 years. While stones can frequently pass through the common bile duct (CBD) into the duodenum, some stones may ...

Background and aim: ERCP with biliary sphincterotomy is the usual method to extract common bile duct stones. However, after sphincterotomy and by means of balloons and Dormia baskets not all stones may be extracted during the first endoscopy session. We present our experience regarding success rate after first ERCP. Patients and methods: 100 consecutive patients were included. All were diagnosed with choledocholitiasis by using ERCP. After biliary sphincterotomy, attempts to extract stones by means of balloons and Dormia baskets only were made. Billroth II gastrectomies and bile duct strictures of any origin were excluded. Results: during the first attempt at ERCP, complete stone clearance was achieved in 73 patients. Of the remaining 27 patients: 3 underwent surgery for choledocholithiasis, 20 had a plastic stent inserted, and 4 needed another ERCP for stones having been left in place. Mean extracted stone size was 9.4 mm (+/-3.8), and mean non-extracted stone size was 17 mm (+/-7.3): p,0.001. ...
Results A total of 203 referrals (n = 109 in 2013, n = 94 in 2014) were analysed: choledocholithiasis (n = 72), hepatobiliary cancers (n = 32), cholelithiasis (n = 36), liver disease (n = 23) and others (n = 40).. For all pathology, we managed to half the average time from referral to first decision by a consultant in 2014. The mean waiting time for ultrasound as the first choice of investigation improved by 3.2 days and for MRCP by 3.1 days in 2014. It took on average 3.2 days longer to obtain a CT in 2014.. For choledocholithiasis, the time interval from referral to ERCP in 2013 (2-49 days, mean = 18.1) were similar to 2014 (2-47 days, mean = 17.0) despite mean improvement of 2.2 days and 2.8 days in the waiting times for ultrasound and MRCP respectively. This was due to selected cases where CT was also required as it took on average 5.8 days longer to obtain a CT in 2014 in this group.. For cancers, the time from referral to biliary decompression (ERCP/PTC) improved by 3.5 days from 2013 ...

Nyeri ulu hati, mula bukan hanya gejala penyakit maag. Seringkali gejala ini disebabkan oleh batu empedu (kolelitiasis). Diagnosa penyakit ini cukup sederhana, hanya dengan pemeriksaan USG, sebagian besar dapat diketahui.. Bahaya batu empedu adalah peradangan atau infeksi dari ringan sampai berat bahkan dapat membahayakan nyawa. Batu juga dapat menyumbat saluran empedu sehingga timbul gejala kuning dan dapat merusak fungsi hati. Bila ada gejala nyeri atau infeksi, sebaiknya dilakukan operasi untuk mencegah komplikasi-komplikasi seperti tersebut diatas.. Cara operasi yang mutakhir adalah pengangkatan kantung empedu dengan sayatan kulit yang kecil (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy). Pengangkatan batu di saluran empedu (Choledocholithiasis) juga bisa dilakukan pembedahan cara minimal invasif yaitu Laparoscopic Bile Duct Exploration (LBDE). Operasi jenis ini memberikan keuntungan dibandingkan sayatan panjang pada operasi konvensional, berupa nyeri pasca operasi yang jauh lebih ringan, hari perawatan ...

ERCP is used primarily to diagnose and treat conditions of the bile ducts, including gallstones, inflammatory strictures (scars), leaks (from trauma and surgery), and cancer. ERCP combines the use of x rays and an endoscope, which is a long, flexible, lighted tube. Through the endoscope, the physician can see the inside of the stomach and duodenum, and inject dyes into the ducts in the biliary tree and pancreas so they can be seen on x rays.. For the procedure, you will lie on your left side on an examining table in an x-ray room. You will be given medication to help numb the back of your throat and a sedative to help you relax during the exam. You will swallow the endoscope, and the physician will then guide the scope through your esophagus, stomach, and duodenum until it reaches the spot where the ducts of the biliary tree and pancreas open into the duodenum. At this time, you will be turned to lie flat on your stomach, and the physician will pass a small plastic tube through the scope. ...
