Critical Care Aspects of Gallstone Disease.

J Crit Care Med (Targu Mures) 2019 Jan 4;5(1):6-18. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases, Marion Bessin Liver Research Center, "Albert Einstein" College of Medicine, Bronx, NY 10461, USA.

Approximately twenty per cent of adults have gallstones making it one of the most prevalent gastrointestinal diseases in Western countries. About twenty per cent of gallstone patients requires medical, endoscopic, or surgical therapies such as cholecystectomy due to the onset of gallstone-related symptoms or gallstone-related complications. Thus, patients with symptomatic, uncomplicated or complicated gallstones, regardless of the type of stones, represent one of the largest patient categories admitted to European hospitals. Read More

Biliary hyperkinesia, a new diagnosis or misunderstood pathophysiology of dyskinesia: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 Jan 19;55:80-83. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Beaumont Health Farmington Hills, General Surgery Department, 28050 Grand River Avenue, Farmington Hills, MI 48336, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Biliary colic, characterized by intermittent right upper quadrant abdominal pain is a common complaint in the United States population. Patients whose pain is undiagnosed by ultrasound generally undergo hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid scan with cholecystokinin stimulation (HIDA-CCK) to assess function of the gallbladder and biliary tree. Traditionally, two outcomes are possible based on a measured ejection fraction of the gallbladder: either dyskinesia or normal function is diagnosed. Read More

Effects of dipyrone on the digestive tract.

Braz J Med Biol Res 2019 Jan 10;52(2):e8103. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Departamento de Clinica Médica, Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto, Universidade de São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, SP, Brasil.

Dipyrone (metamizole), acting through its main metabolites 4-methyl-amino-antipyrine and 4-amino-antipyrine, has established analgesic, antipyretic, and spasmolytic pharmacological effects, which are mediated by poorly known mechanisms. In rats, intravenously administered dipyrone delays gastric emptying (GE) of liquids with the participation of capsaicin-sensitive afferent fibers. This effect seems to be mediated by norepinephrine originating from the sympathetic nervous system but not from the superior celiac-mesenteric ganglion complex, which activates β2-adrenoceptors.

Obstructive jaundice of a parasitic etiology.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2019 Feb;111(2):165-166

Servicio de Sistema Digestivo, Complejo de Asistencia Universitario de León, España.

We present the case of a patient with colic pain in the epigastrium and right hypochondrium, which was accompanied by choluria and acholia and slightly elevated levels of bilirubin and eosinophilia. Abdominal echography and magnetic resonance imaging identified a biliary obstruction and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography was used to extract 3 adult worms identified as Fasciola hepatica. This case highlights the need to consider the suspicion of biliary obstruction caused by Fasciola hepatica in the presence of obstructive jaundice, with or without eosinophilia. Read More

Is hyperkinetic gallbladder an indication for cholecystectomy?

Surg Endosc 2018 Sep 12. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

General/Bariatric Surgery, Mercy Hospital, 540 East Jefferson Street, Suite 205, Iowa City, IA, 52245, USA.

Background: The (99m) technetium-labelled hepato imino diacetic acid (HIDA) scan is widely used to evaluate patients with biliary colic with a normal trans-abdominal ultrasound scan. Most studies recommend cholecystectomy for patients with biliary dyskinesia, defined by gallbladder ejection fraction (GBEF) of less than 35-40% on HIDA scan. There are no recommendations regarding management of hyperkinetic gallbladder defined by GBEF of greater than 80% on HIDA scan. Read More

Symptomatic cholelithiasis in an ectopic retrocolic retroduodenal subhepatic duplicated gallbladder.

Radiol Case Rep 2018 Aug 5;13(4):904-908. Epub 2018 Jul 5.

Department of Surgery, Rochester General Hospital, 1425 Portland Avenue, Rochester, NY 14621, USA.

Gallbladder duplication is a rare anatomic variant of biliary anatomy, which can present diagnostic and treatment challenges. In this case, a 49-year-old male presented with classic symptoms of biliary colic to his primary care physician, and while computed tomography (CT) noted the presence of gallstones, neither CT nor ultrasound was able to locate a gallbladder within the gallbladder fossa. Initial surgery found and cauterized a rudimentary gallbladder, but symptoms persisted, requiring a second surgery and secondary analysis of CT, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging with magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography.

Role of Cholecystectomy After Endoscopic Sphincterotomy in the Management of Choledocholithiasis in High-risk Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

J Clin Gastroenterol 2018 Aug;52(7):579-589

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL.

Background: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography and endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) with subsequent cholecystectomy is the standard of care for the management of patients with choledocholithiasis. There is conflicting evidence in terms of mortality reduction, prevention of complications specifically biliary pancreatitis and cholangitis with the use of early cholecystectomy particularly in high-risk surgical and elderly patients.

Aims: We conducted this systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to compare the early cholecystectomy versus wait and watch strategy after ES. Read More

Gallbladder function predicts subsequent biliary complications in patients with common bile duct stones after endoscopic treatment?

BMC Gastroenterol 2018 Feb 27;18(1):32. Epub 2018 Feb 27.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Republic of China.

Background: In patients with common bile duct stones (CBDS) and intact gallbladder, further management for the gallbladder after the CBDS clearance is still controversial. The relationship between gallbladder motility and the biliary complications were seldom discussed. Our study is to predict the subsequent biliary complications by gallbladder function test using fatty meal sonography (FMS) in patients with CBDS who had been treated by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).

Clinical Cholecystitis in the Absence of the Gallbladder.

Cureus 2017 Nov 10;9(11):e1834. Epub 2017 Nov 10.

Internal Medicine Residency, Florida Hospital-Orlando.

The congenital absence of the gallbladder (CAG) is a rare condition with an incidence of 13-65 cases/ 100,000 in the general population. This occurs when the gallbladder and the cystic duct fail to bud from the common bile duct during the fifth week of gestation. Most commonly, the patients with congenital absence of the gallbladder are asymptomatic. Read More
