Effects of chronic nitric oxide activation or inhibition on early hepatic fibrosis in rats with bile duct ligation. (1/453)

Hepatic fibrosis or increased liver collagen contents drive functional abnormalities that, when extensive, may be life threatening. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of the chronic stimulation or inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis in rats with hepatic fibrosis induced by permanent common bile duct ligation (3 weeks) and the role of expression of the different nitric oxide synthase isoforms. Bile duct ligation led to an important accumulation of collagen in the hepatic parenchyma, as shown both histologically and by the hydroxyproline contents of livers. Bilirubin and serum enzyme activities (measured as markers of cholestasis) increased several-fold after bile duct ligation. The area of fibrotic tissue, liver hydroxyproline content and serum markers of cholestasis were clearly related in obstructed rats. The absence of modifications in haemodynamic parameters excludes circulatory changes from being responsible for the development of liver alterations. In animals treated with NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) the area of fibrosis was similar to that of untreated animals, the signs of cholestasis and cellular injury being more evident. In rats treated with L-arginine the area of fibrosis was almost three times larger than that found in bile duct ligated rats and in L-NAME-treated bile duct ligated rats, although the observed biochemical changes were similar to those seen in rats treated with L-NAME. Our results with inducible nitric oxide synthase, obtained by Western blots and immunohistochemistry, indicate a greater expression of the inducible enzyme in bile duct ligated and L-arginine-treated animals and a lower expression in the L-NAME and control groups. Constitutive nitric oxide synthase expression, obtained by Western blots, was very similar in all groups, except for the L-arginine-treated rats in which it was lower. These results suggest that nitric oxide production may be a key factor in the development of fibrosis in bile duct ligated rats. They also support the hypothesis of a dual role for nitric oxide; one beneficial, mediated by its circulatory effects, and the second negative, through its local toxic effects.  (+info)

Carcinoids of the common bile duct: a case report and literature review. (2/453)

Carcinoids of the extrahepatic bile ducts and particularly the common bile duct are extremely rare. A 65-year-old woman presented with obstructive jaundice. Laboratory and imaging studies gave results that were consistent with an obstructing lesion in the common bile duct. In this case, a stent was inserted initially to decompress the bile ducts. Subsequently a laparotomy and pancreaticoduodenectomy were performed and a tissue diagnosis of carcinoid of the common bile duct was made. The patient was well with no evidence of recurrence 17 months postoperatively. The authors believe this is the 19th reported case of an extrahepatic bile duct carcinoid.  (+info)

Spontaneous perforation of common bile duct in infants. (3/453)

Two infants with spontaneous perforation of the common bile duct are described. One presented with mild jaundice, dark urine, acholic stools, and hydroceles, the other with bilateral inguinal hernia. In both the diagnosis was unsuspected until bile-stained ascites was discovered. Both eventually developed bile-staining of the scrotum. Neither was acutely ill. The 131I-Rose Bengal faecal excretion test showed reduced faecal excretion at 8% and 12% of the injected dose with 16-5 and 17%/dl of the dose being recovered in the ascitic fluid 48 hours after intravenous injection. The ascitic:plasma ratio of isotope at that time was 32:1 and 28:1. Operative cholangiography in both showed a perforation at the junction of the cystic duct and common bile duct with no contrast entering the duodenum. Cholecystenterostomy using a Roux-en-Y loop of jejunum produced a rapid sustained recovery and is suggested as the treatment of choice. This condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis of obstructive jaundice in infancy since early surgical correction is necessary.  (+info)

Ultrasonographic evaluation of the common bile duct in biliary acute pancreatitis patients: comparison with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. (4/453)

We compared the morphologic findings of the common bile duct by ultrasonography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients with biliary acute pancreatitis. Forty-five patients were studied. The diagnosis of acute pancreatitis was based on the presence of characteristic abdominal pain associated with an elevation of serum amylase and lipase concentrations. All patients underwent ultrasonography and subsequently urgent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and eventually endoscopic sphincterotomy. Ultrasonography showed gallstones in 33 patients and sludge of the gallbladder in seven patients. In the common bile duct, lithiasis was found in two patients and sludge in 25. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography showed choledocolithiasis in eight patients and sludge of the common bile duct in 32. In 27 cases (60%) concordance occurred between ultrasonographic and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic detection of lithiasis or sludge of the common bile duct. The average diameter of the common bile duct determined by sonography was significantly smaller (P < 0.001) than that obtained by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. The evaluation of this parameter indicated that a good correlation existed between the values obtained with the two techniques (r(s) = 0.765, P < 0.001). Both ultrasonography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography can provide reliable measurements of the common bile duct diameter. Ultrasonography is the technique of choice in the initial investigation of patients with biliary acute pancreatitis.  (+info)

Role of angiotensin in renal sympathetic activation in cirrhotic rats. (5/453)

Central nervous system (CNS) renin-angiotensin activity influences the basal level of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) and its reflex regulation. The effect of type 1 angiotensin II (ANG II)-receptor antagonist treatment (losartan) on cardiac baroreflex regulation of RSNA and renal sodium handling was examined in rats with cirrhosis due to common bile duct ligation (CBDL). Basal levels of heart rate, mean arterial pressure (MAP), RSNA, and urinary sodium excretion were not affected by intracerebroventricular administration of either losartan or vehicle to CBDL rats. After acute intravenous isotonic saline loading (10% body wt) in vehicle-treated CBDL rats, MAP was unchanged and the decrease in RSNA seen in normal rats did not occur. However, in losartan-treated CBDL rats, there were significant concurrent but transient decreases in MAP (-20 +/- 2 mmHg) and RSNA (-25 +/- 3%). The natriuretic response to acute volume loading in losartan-treated CBDL rats was significantly less than that in vehicle-treated CBDL rats only at those time points where there were significant decreases in MAP. Antagonism of CNS ANG II type 1 receptors augments the renal sympathoinhibitory response to acute volume loading in CBDL. However, the natriuretic response to the acute volume loading is not improved, likely due to the strong antinatriuretic influence of the concomitant marked decrease in MAP (renal perfusion pressure) mediated by widespread sympathetic withdrawal from the systemic vasculature.  (+info)

Renal expression of aquaporins in liver cirrhosis induced by chronic common bile duct ligation in rats. (6/453)

Semiquantitative immunoblotting was used to investigate the expression levels of the four major renal aquaporins, the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter of the thick ascending limb, the type 3 Na-H exchanger, and the Na-K-ATPase in kidneys from rats with cirrhosis secondary to common bile duct ligation (CBDL). These rats had significant water retention and hyponatremia. In contrast to models of cirrhosis induced by carbon tetrachloride, aquaporin-2 expression in CBDL-induced cirrhosis was decreased. Thus, these results show that in the setting of extracellular fluid volume expansion, excessive water retention with hyponatremia can occur in the absence of increases in aquaporin-2 abundance. In addition, the expression levels of the two basolateral collecting duct aquaporins (aquaporin-3 and -4) were decreased in CBDL rats relative to sham-operated control rats. Similarly, the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter of the thick ascending limb and the type 3 Na-H exchanger showed decreases in expression. In contrast, the expression levels of aquaporin-1 and the all subunit of the Na-K-ATPase were not decreased. Thus, dysregulation of multiple water channels and ion transporters may play a role in water balance abnormalities associated with CBDL-induced cirrhosis in rats.  (+info)

Tissue plasminogen activator and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 in human choledochal bile. (7/453)

Fibrinolytic properties have been detected in animal and human gallbladder (GB) bile. Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) has been reported in greater concentration in GB stone bile and may be a nucleating factor in the pathogenesis of GB stone formation. It is unknown whether or not human choledochal bile has similar properties, which could have a role in choledocholithiasis. The aims of this study were to determine the presence of fibrinolytic properties of human choledochal bile and to compare those properties among normal, acalculous, and calculous-infected choledochal bile. Tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and PAI-1 of choledochal bile were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay in patients with cholangitis due to acalculous bile duct obstructions (n = 9), choledocholithiasis with cholangitis (n = 20), and normal bile (n = 7). The t-PA concentration of choledochal bile was no different among the three groups (acalculous-infected bile, median 4.61 ng/ml, and calculous-infected bile, 4.61 ng/ml, versus normal bile, 7.33 ng/ml). PAI-1 was detected in choledochal bile in significantly greater concentrations in patients with acalculous cholangitis due to bile duct obstructions and choledocholithiasis with cholangitis (acalculous-infected bile, median 0.36 ng/ml, and calculous-infected bile, 0.1 ng/ml, versus normal bile, 0.02 ng/ml, p < 0.05), but the bile concentration of PAI-1 was no different between the acalculous and calculous-infected choledochal bile. Human choledochal bile possesses t-PA and PAI-1. PAI-1 was present in greater concentrations in both acalculous and calculous-infected choledochal bile. Increased levels of PAI-1 may be an epiphenomenon of cholangitis rather than a factor in the pathogenesis of choledocholithiasis.  (+info)

Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy: a reappraisal of its indications and results. (8/453)

A critical evaluation is made of 131 patients submitted to choledocho or hepaticojejunostomy. The main indications for hepaticojejunostomy were iatrogenic strictures of CBD (60 patients), and choledocholithiasis with markedly dilated duct (41 patients). The overall mortality rate was 4% representing principally renal hepatic failure, bile peritonitis and bleeding. The complications following hepaticojejunostomy included only in one case biliary fistula which required reoperation. The long-term results of 80 patients available for a followup study were as follows: 63 patients (78.7%) were symptom-free at 2-13 years followup; 8 patients had brief episodes of cholangitis which responded to antibiotic and corticosteroid treatment; 9 patients required reoperation for stricture of anastomosis. These overall results are a strong argument for hepaticojejunostomy which, compared with choledochoduodenostomy, avoids the hazards of the so-called sump syndrome and of the reflux of enteric contents in the CBD. An increased incidence of peptic ulcer disease in the patients submitted to hepaticojejunostomy was not observed. In very high strictures and in reinterventions anastomosis between left hepatic duct and Roux-en-Y jejunal limb was carried out. The results achieved with this technique, which was performed in 26 patients, were about the same following hepaticojejunostomy.  (+info)

Introduction: Common bile duct stones (CBDS) are found in approximately 10% of patients who undergo cholecystectomy. Symptomatic common bile duct stones are a source of significant morbidity as they may cause obstructive jaundice, cholangitis, biliary cirrhosis and pancreatitis. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has been a mainstay of treatment for common bile duct stones. Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration has also proven to be a safe, cost effective and efficacious way of clearing ductal stones. Failure to clear stones by either method however often requires more invasive measures such as open common bile duct exploration, which in turn increases morbidity, hospital length of stay and recovery time. We present a novel approach to managing impacted common bile duct stones by utilizing laparoscopic transcystic common bile duct exploration and holmium laser lithotripsy with favorable outcomes.. Methods: This is a case series of patients undergoing laparoscopic ...
Sergio Rojas-ortega, MD, Emina Pasic, MD, Rachid Cesin, MD, Gerardo Reed, MD. Hospital Angeles Puebla. INTRODUCTION: Many surgeons are not comfortable in treating common bile duct stones during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However if the diagnosis is established during intraoperative cholangiography, the surgeon is confronted with a therapeutic dilemma that is, the choice between laparoscopic common bile duct exploration, conversion to open surgery, or postoperative sphincterotomy.. MATERIAL and METHODS: In order to show how easy can be to perform a laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE), we showed a video to 20 general surgeons, and then invited them to the laboratory where we set the SIMULAP for common bile duct exploration with a flexible choledocoscope. Each surgeon performed LCBDE: transcystic and choledocotomy technique. We measured the time to complete the exploration, succes in common bile duct extraction, previous knowledge of the instrumentation and technique, and the ...
Objective To study the effects of complete laparoscopic common bile duct exploration on elderly patients with complicated hepatolithiasis and their inflammatory stress response index and immune function.Methods 64 cases of the elderly patients( over 60 years old) diagnosed with complicated hepatolithiasis in our hospital were selected and randomly divided into two groups. 32 cases of patients treated with complete laparoscopic common bile duct exploration was enrolled in the laparoscopic group,and the other 32 cases treated with traditional open surgery were classified as the open group. The curative effects of the two groups were compared. Results The operation time,intra-operative blood loss,postoperative anal exhaust time,hospital stays and medical costs in the laparoscopic group were shorter or less than those in the open group( P 0. 05). The levels of total bilirubin,direct bilirubin and indirect bilirubin of two groups one month after the operation were significantly decreased( P 0. 05),and the

Rupture of hydatid liver cyst into biliary tree is frequent complications that involvethe common hepatic duct, lobar biliary branches, the small intrahepatic bile ducts,but rarely rupture into common bile duct. The rupture of hydatid cyst is serious life threating event. The authors are reporting a case of total rupture of hydatid cyst of liver into common bile duct. A 50-year-old male patient who presented with acute cholangitis was diagnosed as a case of totally rupture of hydatid cyst on Abdominal CT Scan. Rupture of hydatid cyst of liver into common bile duct and the gallbladder was confirmed on surgery. Treated by cholecystectomy and T-tube drainage of Common bileduct. Key words: hydatid liver cyst, Rupture, Common bile duct (CBD),jaundice.
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 ...
RESULTS. A total of 174 laparoscopic explorations of the common bile duct were performed. Indications for surgery (some overlapping) included: concomitant gallstones and common bile duct stones (n=68, 39%) in young persons (2 cm) or multiple common bile duct stones (n=40, 23%), and need for laparoscopic bypass to improve bile drainage (n=34, 20%). Mean patient age was 63 (standard deviation, 16) years and 103 were female. Altogether 156 choledochotomies and 18 transcystic duct explorations were performed, with 12 (7%) open conversions. The mean operating time was 129 (standard deviation, 57) minutes. Additional procedures included: 54 laparoscopic operative cholangiographies, 34 laparoscopic biliary bypasses, and 31 instances of adhesiolysis in patients with a history of open upper gastro-intestinal surgery. Complete stone clearance was achieved in 160 (92%) patients. Non-lethal complications occurred in 34 (20%) patients and one died of sepsis after a major bile leak. The mean postoperative ...
Endoscopic retrograde laser lithotripsy of common bile duct stones is a new technique which can be carried out through the endoscope without anaesthesia using ordinary endoscopic equipment. In the method described here a flashlamp pulsed Neodymium YAG laser (wave length 1064 nm) was used. Light energy was transmitted along a highly flexible quartz fibre with a diameter of 0.2 mm. This new technique was used in nine patients with concrements in the common bile duct, which could not be removed with the established endoscopic techniques. In eight of the nine the concrements (maximum diameter 4.7 x 3.1 cm) could be fragmented and in six the fragments could be extracted from the common bile duct. The total energy required was 80-300 J; complications were not observed.. ...

An 83 year old woman presented with a two week history of right upper quadrant pain, pale stools, dark urine, and itch. In the previous five years there had been two episodes of similar symptoms, ultrasound scan showing multiple gall bladder calculi. Past history included hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and obesity.. On examination she was not clinically icteric, apyrexic, but mildly tender in the right upper quadrant. Liver enzymes were obstructive, bilirubin 31 μmol/l (3-20 μmol/l), alkaline phosphatase 842 U/l (100-280 U/l), γ-glutamyltranspeptidase 778 U/l (5-50 U/l).. On ultrasound scan there were gallbladder stones and a dilated common bile duct of 11 mm. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography revealed a large single calculus in the dilated common bile duct, unable to be extracted after spincterotomy. ...
Common bile duct stones complicate cholelithiasis in 10 to 15 percent of cases. Most authorities believe ductal stones should be removed because of possible complications, including cholangitis and acute pancreatitis. The ability to predict the presence or absence of bile duct stones would be helpful in the management of these patients. Because of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic ultrasonography and laparoscopic surgery, Prat and associates conducted a study to identify predictors of common bile duct stones in patients with biliary symptoms.. The 880 patients in the prospective study had been referred for endoscopic ultrasonography for the evaluation of common bile duct stones. This procedure is considered the gold standard for the diagnosis of common bile duct stones. The prevalence of choledocholithiasis in the study population was 18.8 percent (166 of 880 patients). In patients under age 70, the prevalence of ...

Treatment consisted of surgical removal of the fungus ball and drainage. Chemotherapy was not necessary. Ureteral obstruction through fungus ball formation, and even pulmonary fungus ball formation, has been attributed to candida, but this is the first case reported, to our knowledge, of bile duct obstruction. ...
Since the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the management strategy for CBD stones has been a subject of much discussion but with the absence of an established consensus.. There were several methods in the management of patients with choledocholithiasis: Single stage laparoscopic procedures, two stage methods combining LC with pre- or post-operative ERC. For the single stage laparoscopic procedures, LC can be combined with laparoscopic exploration of the common bile duct, either as a choledochotomy or as a LTSE procedure. Preoperative Endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) has been the procedure of choice for most physicians[10, 11]. Although the success rate for stone clearance equals 87% to 97%, ERCP and EST are associated with morbidity and mortality rates of 5% to 11% and 0.77% to 1.2%, respectively[12-15].. According to some randomized studies, the single-stage technique has been shown to have the advantages of shorter hospital stay and lower postoperative morbidity[16-18]. The present study ...

Bile is the green liquid that is made by the liver and is essential for digesting fat. Without some fat in the diet we would not be able to survive as it is essential for the absorption of fat soluble vitamins, so bile is therefore essential for health. Bile is made by the cells of the liver and is collected within a series of tubes within the liver itself called the bile ducts. These run down into one main tube called the common bile duct which delivers the bile into the gut (duodenum) where it is mixed with the food. Off the common bile duct is a side branch and at the end of the side branch is the gallbladder. Under normal circumstances bile passes straight down the common bile duct into the gut but during fasting, typically, some of the bile is bypassed down the side branch where it is stored within the gallbladder. So in effect the gallbladder acts as a storage organ for the bile and when food is taken in the gallbladder contracts and any bile that is stored within it is forced out down the ...
Bile duct cancer. Coloured angiogram (X-ray) of a patients common bile duct (dark red, centre right) that has been blocked by cancer. The cancer (not seen) has caused a narrowing, or stricture, of the duct. A stent (fine mesh tube, lower frame) has been permanently inserted into the duct to correct the stricture. A tube (catheter) inside the stent will be removed when fluid has drained from the duct. Bile fluid, secreted by the liver cells, emulsifies ingested fats. It drains into the small intestine through the common bile duct when food enters the intestine. A contrast medium injected into the duct makes it visible on X-ray. - Stock Image M134/0418

The gallbladder is a small organ tucked up under the liver, on the right side of your body. It is shaped like a swollen pea pod. The gallbladders job is to store and dispense bile-a fluid that helps digest fats in the food you eat. Similarly to a pea pod, the gallbladder is green. This is due to the bile inside the gallbladder. Bile is a mixture of cholesterol, bilirubin, bile salts and lecithin.. The gallbladder is connected to other parts of the digestive system through a series of ducts, or tunnels. These ducts help to carry bile and aid in the entire process of breaking down food. Ultimately, the bile finds its way into the common bile duct, where it passes through a special sphincter (a valve made of muscle), into the small intestine. Once there, the bile can mix directly with food thats waiting to be digested. The common bile duct then empties bile into the duodenum, the first portion of the very lengthy small intestine.. Not all bile travels directly from the liver into the duodenum. ...

Occasionally, problems can arise! Problems can stem from obstructions, neoplasia (cancer), or stones, to name a few. Obstructions can be caused by an inflamed and swollen pancreas (pancreatitis) compressing the common bile duct, gall stones blocking the duct completely, or cancer. Or, the bile itself can become too thick to travel through the common bile duct and can back up in the gallbladder itself and cause pain and discomfort. Sometimes the bile can become a mucous ball that does not leave the gallbladder, this is called a mucocele and can be an emergency situation ...
ERCP takes 20-90 minutes. You may be given medication through an IV to help you relax. Your throat is numbed. A thin tube (endoscope) is placed into your throat. The endoscope lets the doctor see the common bile duct on a video screen. A cut may be made where the common bile duct opens to the duodenum to make it easier to remove stones. As blockages are located and removed, x-rays are taken. Contrast dye is injected through a catheter to make the duct show up better on the x-rays.. ...

Ductular reaction (DR) in bile duct ligated rats generally appears from 2nd day after biliary obstruction (BO). However, we show that increased amount of ductular profiles is evident already in 6 hours after BDL. The study aims to explain the origin of such an early DR in response to BO. Male Lewis rats were subjected to common bile duct ligation (CBDL) for 3, 6, 12 and 24 hours and sham operation. Liver samples were studied histologically, immunohistochemically (Ki67, pan-Cytokeratin /AE1 + AE3/ and OV-6) and by immunoblotting analyses. It appeared that number of ductular profiles increase in timerelated manner after BO. These ductular profiles are formed by biliary epitheliocyte-like cells; No mitotic activity was revealed. Part of hepatocytes reveals pan-Cytokeratin positivity on 12 and 24 hours after BO. Total cytokeratins content at 24 hours after CBDL was 37% higher in comparison with control data. The significant increase was observed for the cytokeratins with molecular weights: 61, 56 ...

In surgical procedure, the head of the pancreas, parts of the small intestine, stomach, gallbladder, and bile duct are removed. Only enough of the pancreas will be left to produce the insulin and digestive juices. That surgical procedure is called the whipple procedure.. On the other hand, total pancreatectomy is performed to remove the entire pancreas, common bile duct, gallbladder, part of small intestines and part of the stomach. Now, if the cancer has already spread and it is dangerous to be remove the organs, palliative surgery will be done to at least relieve the symptoms. Biliary bypass is performed when the cancerous cells blocks the bile produced by the gallbladder from reaching the small intestine. The doctor then forms cuts the bile duct or gallbladder and bridge it to the small intestine in order to create pathway around the blocked area.. Another surgical operation to consider is endoscopic stent placement where the tumor starts to block the bile duct and the doctor needs to put a ...
ABSTRACT Pancreatic cancer (PC) is an extremely aggressive malignancy with one of the worst prognoses of all cancers with a median survival of less than one-year and an overall 5-year survival of ,7%. With marked resistance to chemo- and radiotherapies, surgery is the only curative option. In patients with localized disease and no lymph node or extra-pancreatic metastases, complete surgical resection provides a five-year survival rate of 30-75%. However, ,80% of patients diagnosed have unresectable primary tumor. The major cause for the late presentation is lack of early diagnostic biomarker(s). However, the low levels of circulating markers during the early stages drastically dampens the efficacy of many promising markers. A rapid, widely distributable technology with highly sensitive and specific diagnostic ability to discriminate real disease (resectable neoplasms) from confounding high risk groups including pancreatitis, benign pathologies (acute biliary obstruction, common bile duct stone, ...

Background:. Biliary obstruction and cholangitis are common problems in gastroenterology and need specific therapeutic interventions. Besides a variety of potential causes, infections of the biliary tract with Candida and other fungal species have increasingly been reported in the last few years [1-6]. Fungal infections can even lead to common bile duct (CBD) obstruction, as previously reported [7]. Because of the difficulty of gaining bile samples, little is known about the microbial flora of the bile. In a first prospective, observational study, 123 consecutive patients undergoing ERCP for various indications were screened for fungal species [8]. According to this data Candida species may be very frequently be detected in the bile (54/123 patients, 44 % of the cases). As significant risk factors immunosuppression and long-term antibiotic therapy were identified. The main issue in this context is whether positive diagnostic findings represent fungal infection or fungal colonization. Especially ...

Definition : Surgical knives designed to cut through a surgical sheath located in the abdominal wall during laparoscopic procedures. These knives typically consist of a long shaft instrument with a blade at its distal tip and a handle at the proximal end that remains outside the patient. Some laparoscopic knives include detachable (e.g., using a screwing mechanism) blades at the distal tip. Laparoscopic surgical knives are intended for a few particular uses (e.g., incision of the hepatic duct or common bile duct during exploration for stones); they are not frequently used due the inherit risks..

A variety of symptoms that can also be the signals of diseases other than cancer of the pancreas, as well as the hidden location of the pancreas, combine to make cancer difficult to diagnose. For this reason, pancreatic cancer is often advanced before it is detected. Cancer in the head of the pancreas, because it involves the common bile duct, usually causes jaundice, and often there is intense itching of the skin. There may be some abdominal pain and discomfort, nausea, diarrhea, belching, a feeling of fullness, and intolerance of fatty foods. Weight loss, loss of appetite, and loss of strength or energy may be other symptoms. The color of the bowel movement may be affected, being foamy, clay colored, or, more rarely, silvery in color. All of these symptoms might also be present when there are cysts or benign tumors in the pancreas. Another set of symptoms can present themselves in cases where the tumor is located in the body portion of the pancreas. Severe back pain may be present as the ...
The best part of the ERCP, aside from being completely out, is that when they put the endoscope into my gullet and start poking around my tender vittles in order to evaluate the condition of the common bile duct and stent is that they may inflate my stomach and other adjacent organs with air in order to move the scope around and do whatever they need to do. From my last ERCP, I can say that this air fills me up like a beer keg, but unfortunately theres no party. This should be an out-patient procedure, and I should be coming home the same day, albeit with a slightly higher psi rating than when I arrived ...

BACKGROUND Ventral hernia repair with mesh is increasingly common, but the incidence of long-term complications that necessitate mesh explantation is unknown. We aimed to determine the epidemiology of mesh explantation after ventral hernia repair and to compare this with common bile duct injury, a dreaded complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. STUDY DESIGN We evaluated a retrospective cohort of patients undergoing ventral hernia repair by linking the all-payers State Inpatient Databases and State Ambulatory Surgery Databases for New York, California, and Florida. We followed patients longitudinally from 2005 to 2011 for the primary end point of mesh explantation, designated by concurrent procedure codes for ventral hernia repair and foreign body removal. We determined time to mesh explantation and calculated cumulative costs for surgical care, comparing these with historical data for common bile duct injury. RESULTS During the study period, 619,751 patients underwent at least one ventral
OBJECTIVE:Common bile duct (CBD) stenoses often complicate chronic pancreatitis (CP). Although endoscopic drainage is employed as a standard procedure in malignant CBD stenoses, it is not yet the approved standard therapy of CBD stenosis in CP.METHODS:The records of 31 patients with CBD stenosis in CP who had undergone endoscopic placement of plastic endoprostheses into the bile duct between January 1991 and February 1997 were analyzed retrospectively. In all, 18 patients suffered from jaundice and 13 patients exclusively showed serological cholestasis. Upstream dilation of the CBD (19 ± 6.6 mm, 12-35 mm) was detected by ERCP in all patients. In total, 101 endoprostheses were implanted endoscopically, exchanged after 3 ± 2 months, and removed after 10 ± 8 months.RESULTS:All jaundiced patients showed immediate improvement of cholestasis after drainage. At the time of last exchange or after stent removal, prestenotic CBD dilation was reduced in 55% of all patients. Complete regression of stenosis and
The pancreas is a large gland behind the stomach and close to the duodenum, and has two different jobs. One is that it contains the islets of Langerhans that secrete insulin and glucagon. The other primary role of the pancreas is the creation of digestive enzymes that it secretes into the small intestine. Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas, and this can be either acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) issue. It happens when digestive enzymes start digesting the pancreas itself. (1, 2). The most common cause of acute pancreatitis is gallstones (1,2). Gallstones pass through the common bile duct to enter the small intestine. At the entry of the small intestine, the main pancreatic duct lies near to the common bile duct. It is believed that stones that get stuck in the common bile duct impinge on the main pancreatic duct, causing an obstruction of the normal flow of pancreatic fluid and leading to pancreatic injury (1,2). Another way that a stone can cause pancreatitis is by causing a ...

Throughout the reported case, we found recurrence within 2 months, and tumor progression was very rapid. However, there were no cases that progressed as rapidly as shown in our case. The cases reported so far mostly presented a polypoid pattern of the tumor in the CT or the pathology of the removed specimen (7 of 10 cases). Alternatively, in the present case, the tumor was flat on the bile duct and tumor growth showed an infiltrative pattern, usually shown in gallbladder carcinosarcoma. An infiltrative pattern may have poor prognosis compared with a polypoid pattern because polypoid types tend to arise earlier with obstruction of the bile duct and obstructive symptoms, which enable easier detection [14]. The present case shows very radical progression, thus having the possibility that multiple small hidden malignancies would go undetected preoperatively, as well as the histochemical features of a tumor, especially sarcomatoid cells, associated with poor prognosis. There are few references which ...
Acute pancreatitis is a disease with significant mortality. Hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) is the third most common etiological factor of this disorder after alcohol and gall-stones. The authors presented a case of 42-years old caucasian female who was hospitalized due to recurrence of acute pancreatitis. She had been diagnosed with HTG. She had earlier seven episodes of acute pancreatitis. Endoscopic papillotomy and conservatory treatment didnt change her complaints and she was consented for surgery. Exclusion of distal part of bile duct was performed. The common bile duct was anastomosed side-to-side to the 70 cm long Roux loop of the jejunum with the ligation of the distal part of the common bile duct. Following the surgery authors observed normalization of amylase, lipase, leukocytosis and CRP levels. During six months after procedure patient didnt have any new episode of pancreatitis. Exclusion of distal part of bile duct may be a useful tool in surgical treatment of recurrent acute ...
While food enters the stomach, those pancreatic juices are secreted inside a system of ducts that culminate in the main pancreatic duct. The pancreatic duct meets the common bile duct to make the ampulla of Vater that is positioned in the first portion of the small intestine, known as the duodenum. The common bile duct originates in the liver and the gallbladder and secretes another important digestive juice known as bile. The pancreatic juices and bile that are secreted within the duodenum, help the body to digest fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.. Endocrine Function:. The endocrine component of the pancreas consists of islets of Langerhans that secrete insulin and glucagon hormones directly into the bloodstream. Two of the main pancreatic hormones are insulin, that acts to lower blood sugar level, and glucagon, that acts to raise blood sugar.. Insulin:. ...

Extrahepatic biliary obstruction (EHBO) was confirmed at surgery or necropsy in 22 cats. Biliary or pancreatic adenocarcinoma was diagnosed by histopathology in six cats and one cat had an undiagnosed mass in the common bile duct. The remaining 15 cats had at least one of a complex of inflammatory diseases including pancreatitis, cholangiohepatitis, cholelithiasis and cholecystitis. The most common clinical signs were jaundice, anorexia, lethargy, weight loss and vomiting. Hyperbilirubinaemia was present in all cases. Distension of the common bile duct and gall bladder was the most commonly observed finding on abdominal ultrasound. Nineteen cats underwent exploratory laparotomy for biliary decompression and diversion. Mortality in cats with underlying neoplasia was 100 per cent and, in those with non-neoplastic lesions, was 40 per cent. Long-term complications, in those that survived, included recurrence of cholangiohepatitis, chronic weight loss and recurrence of obstruction. Based on these ...

Cystic dilatation of the common bile duct (CBD), also known as choledochal cyst, is a fairly uncommon anomaly of the biliary tract. Although it was first described by Vater and Ezler in 1723, Douglas published the first complete clinical description of the anomaly in a patient in 1853.
On December 7/06 I had an open cholecysectomy, because of extensive adhesions from previous emergency surgery to remove a ruptured spleen. I was told that my bile duct, gall bladder and liver were all gummed up together with scar tissue. During the process of separating the gallbladder and cystic duct my common bile duct was severed (not nicked, but cut in half). The surgeon quickly reattached it somewhere on my duodenum. I was plagued with upper right quadrant radiating to the middle back pain on and off until I was hospitalized5 months later, because there was a bile duct stricure and bile was backup up into my liver, to the point where I could not eat anything. A cholangiogram was performed and a tube was inserted through the ducts in my liver to all bile to flow properly. After 3+ weeks it was removed and I was advised that I might get sick again, or I might not, but if I got the same pain, accompanied by fever to go back to the hospital for pain meds and antibiotics.

Bile duct ligation (BDL) induces primary biliary cirrhosis characterized by cholestasis, impaired liver function and cognition including impairment of memory formation and anxiety-like behaviors. Endogenous opioid and acetylcholine levels are elevated in animal model of cholestasis. In addition, there is no data about the effects of interaction opioidergic and cholinergic systems of dorsal hippocampus (CA1) on amnesia-induced by cholestasis. Male mice weighing 25�??35 g were used in this study. Cholestasis was induced by the ligation of the common bile duct. One-trial step-down and hole-board paradigms were used for the assessment of memory retrieval and anxiety-like behaviors respectively. All drugs injected intra-CA1.

The liver holds about 1 pint (13%) of the bodys blood supply at any given moment. The liver has 2 main parts (lobes). Both of these are made up of 8 segments that consist of a thousand small lobes (lobules). These lobules are connected to small tubes (ducts) that connect with larger ducts from the common hepatic duct. The common hepatic duct transports the bile produced by the liver cells to the gallbladder and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). It does this through the common bile duct. Bile is a clear green or yellow fluid that helps break down the food you eat. ...
