A new variant of double common bile duct associated with choledochal cyst.

J Surg Case Rep 2020 Jun 15;2020(6):rjaa147. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of General Surgery, Hitit University Medical School, Turkey.

Extrahepatic bile duct duplication is a rare biliary anomaly often associated with conditions like cholecysto-choledocholithiasis, choledochal cyst and malignancy. Precise preoperative diagnosis using conventional radiologic imaging still remains a challenge and use of existing classification system is equally confusing. A female patient diagnosed with choledochal cyst by magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography was found to have an associated new variant of double common bile duct during surgery. Read More

A Remnant Choledochal Cyst after Choledochal Cyst Excision Treated with a Lumen-Apposing Metal Stent: A Case Report.

Clin Endosc 2020 Jan 8. Epub 2020 Jan 8.

Department of Internal Medicine and Liver Research Institute, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

A lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) is a saddle-shaped stent with large flanges at both ends, thereby preventing stent migration and helping with approximation of the adjacent structures. We report the case of a 25-year-old female with remnant choledochal cyst which was successfully treated with LAMS after initial treatment failure with a plastic stent. Although complete excision of the cyst is the definite treatment of choledochal cysts, endoscopic ultrasonography-guided cystoduodenostomy can be considered in cases wherein surgery is not feasible and dysplasia is not present.

Survey of the attitudes of hepatopancreatobiliary surgeons in northern Europe to resection of choledochal cysts in asymptomatic Western adults.

BJS Open 2019 12 4;3(6):785-792. Epub 2019 Sep 4.

Department of Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery Oslo University Hospital Oslo Norway.

Background: Todani type 1 and 4 choledochal cysts are associated with a risk of developing cholangiocarcinoma. Resection is usually recommended, but data for asymptomatic Western adults are sparse. The aim of this study was to investigate diagnostic interpretation and attitudes towards resection of bile ducts for choledochal cysts in this subgroup of patients across northern European centres.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease mimicking gallbladder cancer with associated choledochal cyst: A case report of a malignant masquerade.

JGH Open 2019 Dec 22;3(6):536-539. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Division of Surgical Gastroenterology, Department of General Surgery Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research Chandigarh India.

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is a recently described autoimmune disease that can involve diverse organ systems, causing pancreatitis, cholangitis, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and thyroiditis to name a few. Key histological features include storiform fibrosis, obliterative venulitis, and intense inflammatory infiltrate composed of lymphoplasmacytic cells. The disease has a tendency to present with mass-forming lesions, often difficult to differentiate from malignant processes. Read More

Department of Surgical Gastroenterology and Minimal Access Surgery, Santokba Institute of Digestive Surgical Sciences (SIDSS), Santokba Durlabhji Memorial Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.

The laparoscopic management of hepatobiliary pathology is an established mode of treatment. Incomplete excision of choledochal cyst with the resultant complications is a distinct surgical pathology, the treatment of which can be rendered based on the philosophy of minimally invasive approach which is now an acceptable treatment for the primary condition itself. We describe a case of hepaticojejunostomy site stricture associated with incomplete cyst excision managed laparoscopically. Read More

We read with great interest the scientific letter by Sánchez Melgarejo JF et al., in which they report a degenerate Todani Ia choledochal cyst in a patient with a pancreas divisum. However, patients with a choledochal cyst might benefit from per oral cholangioscopy for malignancy detection and extension evaluation. Read More

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree in a paediatric patient - A rare cause of obstructive jaundice.

SA J Radiol 2019 10;23(1):1662. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Radiology, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common soft-tissue sarcoma in the paediatric age group, ranking fourth in frequency after central nervous system tumours, neuroblastomas and nephroblastomas. Embryonal RMS of the biliary tree is considered a rare entity, with the most common clinical presentation being that of obstructive jaundice. We present the case of a 4-year-old boy who presented with hepatomegaly and obstructive jaundice. Read More

Choledochal Cyst of Cystic Duct in Children a Rare Entity.

Kathmandu Univ Med J (KUMJ) 2018 Oct.-Dec.;16(64):354-358

Department of Department of Radiology, Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical, Sciences (SGPGIMS), Lucknow, India.

Choledochal cyst of the cystic duct is an uncommon entity which may occur as isolated disease or may be associated with choledochal cyst of the other part of the biliary tree. In most of the reported series it was diagnosed at time of operation but now days to better investigation modality it can be diagnosed preoperatively if the index of suspicion is high. We are presenting a series of such case in pediatric age group (which includes an infant) where the diagnosis was made during operation with a light on means and ways for suspecting this entity before operation and how to differentiate other lesion with this entity with relevant review of literature.

Separate pancreatic ducts draining into a type IV choledochal cyst: simultaneous anatomical variants in a child suffering from cholelithiasis and acute pancreatitis.

Surg Radiol Anat 2020 Apr 9;42(4):449-452. Epub 2019 Nov 9.

Section of Radiological Sciences, Department of Biomedical Sciences and Morphological and Functional Imaging, University of Messina, Policlinico "G. Martino" Via Consolare Valeria 1, 98100, Messina, Italy.

The biliary tree and the pancreatic ducts originate from different buds of the primitive foregut. A plethora of anatomical variants and congenital anomalies have been described for both the biliary and the pancreatic duct systems, although they are usually asymptomatic. However, in some cases, these abnormalities can lead to serious clinical scenarios, especially when involving the biliopancreatic junction, with consequent mixing and reflux of the two different juices.

Cystic malformations of the bile ducts are rare congenital disorders, with an incidence of 1/2000000 live births. Complication including the angiocholitis, chronic pancreatitis, progressive biliary cirrhosis, portal hypertension or gallbladder lithiases can reveal severe disorder. Spontaneous perforation is one of the rare complications described for the first time in 1934 by Weber. Read More

In contrast to gallstones, which are increasingly diagnosed in children and adolescents, congenital or perinatally acquired malformations of the biliary tree are rare entities. The surgical treatment of these diseases frequently represents a technical challenge. For children with biliary atresia Kasai portoenterostomy is a therapeutic option in the first weeks of life.

Meandering Main Pancreatic Duct in Association with Choledochal Cysts and Acute Pancreatitis in Pediatrics.

Pediatr Ann 2019 Oct;48(10):e412-e416

Meandering main pancreatic duct (MMPD) is an uncommon anomaly of the main pancreatic duct characterized by an abnormal curvature at the pancreatic head region. This variant can be diagnosed on imaging, particularly magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP). Although its clinical significance remains debatable, recent research suggests an association with recurrent acute pancreatitis. Read More
