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. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.

Obstructive jaundice and acute cholangitis due to papillary stenosis. (1/141)

Papillary stenosis is characterized by fixed fibrosis leading to structural outflow obstruction and it is usually secondary to inflammation and fibrosis from the chronic passage of gallstones, episodes of acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, peptic ulcer disease, and cholesterolosis. However, obstructive jaundice with or without acute cholangitis which leads the physician to suspect the presence of malignancy as a cause is a rare manifestation of papillary stenosis. We report here a case of papillary stenosis presenting with obstructive jaundice and acute cholangitis. The lesion was so difficult to exclude the presence of malignancy preoperatively and intraoperatively that a pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed. Histologic examination of the resected specimen revealed fibrosis, adenomatoid ductal hyperplasia, and mild chronic inflammation of the papilla of Vater and distal common bile duct.  (+info)

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in elderly patients. (2/141)

BACKGROUND: the presentation of common bile duct disease, value of investigations and treatment outcome in elderly patients undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) were assessed. METHODOLOGY: the clinical presentation, liver function tests, full blood counts, abdominal ultrasound and ERCP results were assessed retrospectively in 101 patients (59 women, 42 men; mean age 83 years, range 75-100) sequentially investigated for possible common bile duct disease. RESULTS: 59 patients had common bile duct gallstones, 35 had malignant biliary obstruction (13 with co-existing common bile duct stones) and seven had other outcomes. In the malignant-alone group 68% of those who had jaundice presented painlessly compared with 24% in the gallstones-alone group; 49% of the gallstones-alone group had pain compared with 28% of the malignant group. In the gallstones-alone group 43% had atypical presentations (non-specific symptoms or painless jaundice). Non-specific symptoms were found in 19% of the gallstones-alone group but in only 5% of the malignant group. Of the patients who had common bile duct stones, 18% had pancreatic or biliary malignancy. The co-existence of gallstones and malignancy was emphasized by eight patients in whom the clinical and ultrasound diagnosis was of common bile duct stones but malignancy was detected by ERCP. The sensitivity of ultrasound was 86% for detecting dilated common bile ducts was 86%, but only 69% for diagnosing gallstones within the common bile duct and 67% for diagnosing pancreatic masses. Ultrasound and ERCP were in agreement in 60 patients (60%). Endoscopic clearance of common bile duct gallstones was successful in 53 of 54 attempts (98%). Palliative ERCP treatment was performed in 30 patients who had malignant biliary obstruction and was successful in 22 (73%); in a further four patients (13%) an endoprothesis was successfully inserted percutaneously. The commonest complication of ERCP was cholangitis (four patients); pancreatitis and biliary perforation occurred in one patient each. Twenty-two patients (63%) who had malignancy died during follow-up, the mean survival being 11.3 weeks (range 3 days-2 years). Carcinoma of the ampulla was associated with a relatively good prognosis (three patients survived 18 months or more). CONCLUSION: in elderly patients, common bile duct stones often present atypically and co-existence with malignancy is not unusual; ampullary carcinoma has a relatively good prognosis and ERCP is a safe and effective procedure in the management of biliary obstruction.  (+info)

Functional disorders of the biliary tract and pancreas. (3/141)

The term "dysfunction" defines the motor disorders of the gall bladder and the sphincter of Oddi (SO) without note of the potential etiologic factors for the difficulty to differentiate purely functional alterations from subtle structural changes. Dysfunction of the gall bladder and/or SO produces similar patterns of biliopancreatic pain and SO dysfunction may occur in the presence of the gall bladder. The symptom-based diagnostic criteria of gall bladder and SO dysfunction are episodes of severe steady pain located in the epigastrium and right upper abdominal quadrant which last at least 30 minutes. Gall bladder and SO dysfunctions can cause significant clinical symptoms but do not explain many instances of biliopancreatic type of pain. The syndrome of functional abdominal pain should be differentiated from gall bladder and SO dysfunction. In the diagnostic workup, invasive investigations should be performed only in the presence of compelling clinical evidence and after non-invasive testing has yielded negative findings. Gall bladder dysfunction is suspected when laboratory, ultrasonographic, and microscopic bile examination have excluded the presence of gallstones and other structural abnormalities. The finding of decreased gall bladder emptying at cholecystokinin-cholescintigraphy is the only objective characteristic of gall bladder dysfunction. Symptomatic manifestation of SO dysfunction may be accompanied by features of biliary obstruction (biliary-type SO dysfunction) or significant elevation of pancreatic enzymes and pancreatitis (pancreatic-type SO dysfunction). Biliary-type SO dysfunction occurs more frequently in postcholecystectomy patients who are categorized into three types. Types I and II, but not type III, have biochemical and cholangiographic features of biliary obstruction. Pancreatic-type SO dysfunction is less well classified into types. When non-invasive investigations and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopanreatography show no structural abnormality, manometry of both biliary and pancreatic sphincter may be considered.  (+info)

Manometry based randomised trial of endoscopic sphincterotomy for sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. (4/141)

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic sphincterotomy for biliary-type pain after cholecystectomy remains controversial despite evidence of efficacy in some patients with a high sphincter of Oddi (SO) basal pressure (SO stenosis). AIM: To evaluate the effects of sphincterotomy in patients randomised on the basis of results from endoscopic biliary manometry. METHODS: Endoscopic biliary manometry was performed in 81 patients with biliary-type pain after cholecystectomy who had a dilated bile duct on retrograde cholangiography, transient increases in liver enzymes after episodes of pain, or positive responses to challenge with morphine/neostigmine. The manometric record was categorised as SO stenosis, SO dyskinesia, or normal, after which the patient was randomised in each category to sphincterotomy or to a sham procedure in a prospective double blind study. Symptoms were assessed at intervals of three months for 24 months by an independent observer, and the effects of sphincterotomy on sphincter function were monitored by repeat manometry after three and 24 months. RESULTS: In the SO stenosis group, symptoms improved in 11 of 13 patients treated by sphincterotomy and in five of 13 subjected to a sham procedure (p = 0.041). When manometric records were categorised as dyskinesia or normal, results from sphincterotomy and sham procedures did not differ. Complications were rare, but included mild pancreatitis in seven patients (14 episodes) and a collection in the right upper quadrant, presumably related to a minor perforation. At three months, the endoscopic incision was extended in 19 patients because of manometric evidence of incomplete division of the sphincter. CONCLUSION: In patients with presumed SO dysfunction, endoscopic sphincterotomy is helpful in those with manometric features of SO stenosis.  (+info)

Use of (99m)Tc-DISIDA biliary scanning with morphine provocation for the detection of elevated sphincter of Oddi basal pressure. (5/141)

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic biliary manometry is useful in the assessment of patients with types II and III sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, but it is time consuming and invasive. AIM: To investigate the role of (99m)Tc-DISIDA scanning, with and without morphine provocation, as a non-invasive investigation in these patients compared with endoscopic biliary manometry. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 34 patients with a clinical diagnosis of type II (n = 21) or III (n = 13) sphincter of Oddi dysfunction were studied. Biliary scintigraphy with 100 MBq of (99m)Tc-DISIDA was carried out with and without morphine provocation (0.04 mg/kg intravenously) and time/activity curves were compared with the results of subsequent endoscopic biliary manometry. RESULTS: Eighteen (nine type II, nine type III) of the 34 (53%) patients had sphincter of Oddi basal pressures above the upper limit of normal (40 mm Hg). In the standard DISIDA scan without morphine, no significant differences were observed in time to maximal activity (Tmax) or percentage excretion at 45 or 60 minutes between those with normal and those with abnormal biliary manometry. However, following morphine provocation, median percentage excretion at 60 minutes was 4.9% in those with abnormal manometry and 28.2% in the normal manometry group (p = 0.002). Using a cut off value of 15% excretion at 60 minutes, the sensitivity for detecting elevated sphincter of Oddi basal pressure by the morphine augmented DISIDA scan was 83% and specificity was 81%. Also, 14 of the 18 patients with abnormal manometry complained of biliary-type pain after morphine infusion compared with only two of 16 patients in the normal manometry group (p = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: (99m)Tc-DISIDA with morphine provocation is a useful non-invasive investigation for types II and III sphincter of Oddi dysfunction to detect those with elevated sphincter basal pressures who may respond to endoscopic sphincterotomy.  (+info)

Biliary stenting versus bypass surgery for the palliation of malignant distal bile duct obstruction: a meta-analysis. (6/141)

The objective of this analysis is to compare endoscopic stenting with surgical bypass in patients with unresectable, malignant, distal common bile duct obstruction using the technique of meta-analysis. The inclusion criteria for the studies were randomized patient assignment, publication in the English language, 20 or more patients per group, all patients followed up until death, and follow-up and complications reported in an equivalent way for both treatment arms. Data extraction was performed independently by 2 of the authors. The number of treatment failures, serious complications, requirement for additional treatment sessions, and 30-day mortality were extracted. Three existing trials met the inclusion criteria, all of which compared surgery with the use of plastic stents. There were no studies identified that used metallic expandable stents. For the rate of treatment failure and serious complications, the odds ratios (ORs) of the 3 trials were heterogeneous, and no summary ORs were calculated. More treatment sessions were required after stent placement than after surgery, and a common OR was estimated to be 7.23 (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.73 to 13.98). Thirty-day mortality was not significantly different (OR = 0.522; 95% CI, 0.263 to 1.036). Although surgical bypass required fewer additional treatment sessions, existing data do not allow a definitive conclusion on which treatment is preferable. A larger randomized controlled trial using newer metallic stents and proper quality-of-life instruments is required.  (+info)

Repair of common bile duct injury with the round and falciform ligament after clip necrosis: case report. (7/141)

Occasionally, as abdominal surgeons, we are confronted with common bile duct injury noted during video laparoscopic or open cholecystectomy. Usually this is solved by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) sphincterotomy and stent, or enteric bypass, suture repair and tube drainage. However, after such procedures, there is a significant number of patients with postoperative stenosis. Another alternative to repair common bile duct injury and correct postoperative stenosis is using the round and falciform ligament as circumferencial patch. Due to their closeness to the common bile duct and their adequate blood supply, they make a perfect autologous biological graft.  (+info)

Vanishing bile duct syndrome in Hodgkin's disease: case report. (8/141)

CONTEXT: Liver damage is relatively common in patients affected by Hodgkin's disease. A smaller proportion of cases develops jaundice. Recently, the vanishing bile duct syndrome was described in Hodgkin's disease. The mechanisms of this severe complication have been poorly understood until now. OBJECTIVE: To describe a rare case of intra-hepatic cholestasis due to vanishing bile duct syndrome. DESIGN: Case report. CASE REPORT: A 38-year-old male patient affected by Hodgkin's disease. Liver biopsy showed no detectable Hodgkin's disease. Intra-hepatic cholestasis was found and none of the six portal tracts analyzed contained normal bile ducts. The treatment was based on conventional and high-dose escalation chemotherapy. The patient died from an irreversible liver failure while in complete remission from Hodgkin's disease.  (+info)

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

This discomfort is thought to be caused by tightening of the Sphincter of Oddi, which is the muscle opening that controls the flow of bile and juices from the pancreas (enzymes) into the small intestine. It can also be caused by contractions of the common bile duct (the duct that allows bile from the liver into the small intestine).. The purpose of this research is to study how well a medication called Duloxetine works when used to treat pain associated with SOD. Duloxetine (also called Cymbalta) is a medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of depression and for the treatment of pain caused by nerve damage associated with diabetes. However, for the purposes of this research, Duloxetine is considered investigational (experimental) since it will test how well this medication works for the ...

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.. ...
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 ...
Basal frequency of sphincter of Oddi phasic contractility has been repeatedly measured during endoscopic manometry and reported to range, in control subjects, from (M +/- SE) 3.0 +/- 0.6 to 7.5 +/- 0.7 c/min. Recently, high frequency (greater than 8 c/min) phasic contractions or absence of phasic activity were recorded in patients with postcholecystectomy or pancreatic complaints, possibly suggesting a sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. In the present study, sphincter of Oddi (biliary tract) phasic contractility was measured by perendoscopic manometry in 13 subjects without specific clinical symptoms of biliopancreatic disease and with a normal common bile and pancreatic duct at ERCP. Four T-tube patients with no evidence of common bile duct stones or papillary stenosis were studied for comparison (transductal sphincter of Oddi manometry). Basal frequency was found to range from 0 to 7 c/min (M +/- SE: 2.99 +/- 0.46) in perendoscopic manometry (85 min of recording time) and from 0 to 12 c/min (2.0 ...
The main problem of chronic pancreatitis is managing the chronic pain. When pharmacological means fail, ablative procedures like coeliac plexus ablation or bilateral splanchnicectomy becomes necessary. These procedures are designed based on anatomy. Pancreatic duct and common bile duct obstruction are known complications of chronic pancreatitis and methods of treatment are essentially based on interpretation of images. We present a case history of a patient with chronic pancreatitis who underwent bilateral thoracoscopic splanchnicectomy and later laparoscopic cholecysto-jejunostomy for common bile duct obstruction. The importance of anatomy in diagnosis and treatment are highlighted ...
Surgical Procedures of Choledochal Cyst Excision on orangecountysurgeons.org During choledochal cyst excision, a choledochal cyst is removed. These types of cysts cause the hepatic or biliary duct to enlarge, hampering bile drainage. During the procedure, the large duct is removed, and the small intestine is then moved up to the resected area.

John N Afthinos, MD, Roman Grinberg, MD, Karen E Gibbs, MD. Staten Island University Hospital. Introduction: Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) is a rare disorder which can be difficult to diagnose and treat. It has been identified in patients who have undergone gastric bypass. Many times, testing is negative for any significant abnormalities, yet significant upper abdominal pain and interruption of daily life occurs frequently. We sought to query a large national database to better characterize patients with SOD with a focus on patients who have had weight loss surgery.. Methods: The NIS Database was queried for 2005 - 2010 for all patients admitted with a diagnosis of sphincter of Oddi spasm (ICD-9M 576.5). The patients were characterized for their age, gender, comorbid conditions and a history of prior bariatric surgery. We evaluated any interventions performed. Multivariate regression analyses were performed to identify factors predicting an intervention.. Results: A total of 3,601 patients ...

SIGNIFICANCE OF OCTAPEPTIDE CHOLECYSTOKININ IN DEVELOPMENT OF ODDIS SPHINCTER DYSFUNCTION OF INORGANIC ETIOLOGY AFTER CHOLECYSTECTOMY IN PATIENTS OPERATED FOR CALCULOUS CHOLECYSTITIS
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 ...

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. Ultrasound and MRI scan were performed on my baby and diagnosed that he had a very severe problem-it is called Choledochal cyst, a by-birth problem where there is swelling of the bile duct (a tube that carries bile from the liver into the intestine). Due to this, there is improper flow of bile, and the children get ...
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.. ...
Choledochal Cysts are a congenital abnormality starting in childhood. The cysts grow on or around the bile duct and cause abnormal enlargement
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 ...
when i was about 7 1/2 months pregnant i was starting to feel extremely sick. i had horrible pains in my stomach and in my right side. i could not keep any food down and i had bad back problems. the doctors found out i had a choledochal cyst that was also getting in the way of my daughter from growing. i had an induced labor and was immediatly opperated on. they said that it shouldnt come back and that it was commonly found in asian females. from what i understand its also caused by genetics so my daughter and i both have to continuously go to the doctors for MRIs and CAT scans every year. after the cyst was removed it took a while for a bowel movement but after about 2 weeks or so i was back on schedule ...

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 ...

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 ...

This exhibit depicts an iatrogenic (caused by the surgeon) injury to the common hepatic duct and common bile duct during an abdominal cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) procedure. It compares the injury with a correct, desired surgical outcome. Structures include the right and left lobes of the liver, gallbladder, common hepatic duct, cystic duct, cystic artery and common bile duct. The final step of the exhibit pictures the cut and clipped common bile duct leaking bile into the peritoneum.
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.

A CT scan performed showed postsurgical changes of laparoscopic ...
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 ...
