Single-balloon enteroscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in the setting of altered upper gastrointestinal anatomy.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Oct 26;31(4):467-469. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Gastroenterology, Scott & White Medical CenterTempleTexas.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in the setting of altered upper gastrointestinal anatomy presents several procedural challenges. Use of a standard side-viewing duodenoscope is often precluded by the patient's anatomy, thus rendering a limited examination of the ampulla and difficult cannulation of the bile duct. The authors present a case of single-balloon enteroscopy with successful endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, direct cholangioscopy, and cystic duct stone extraction using only an enteroscope.

Early laparoscopic cholecystectomy is associated with less risk of complications after the removal of common bile duct stones by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.

Turk J Gastroenterol 2019 Apr;30(4):336-344

Department of Gastroenterology, Hacettepe University School of Medicine Ankara, Turkey.

Background/aims: Several studies recommend prompt laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for choledocholithiasis. However, histopathological alterations in the gallbladder during this time interval and the role played by ERCP in causing these changes have not been sufficiently elucidated. To compare early period LCs with delayed LCs following common bile duct stone extraction via ERCP with regard to operation time, hospitalization period, conversion to open cholecystectomy rate, morbidity, mortality, and histopathological alterations in the gallbladder wall.

Direct peroral cholangioscopy in the management of difficult biliary stones: a new tool to confirm common bile duct clearance. Results of a preliminary study.

J Gastrointestin Liver Dis 2019 Mar;28(1):89-94

Humanitas University, Rozzano, Milan, Italy.

Background And Aims: Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) with stone extraction is the standard treatment for choledocholithiasis. After stone retrieval, balloon-occluded cholangiography is generally performed to confirm bile duct clearance but can miss residual stones particularly in patients with residual small-sized stones, a large bile duct or pneumobilia. In addition, difficult common bile duct (CBD) stones requiring advanced endoscopic techniques for retrieval are a potential risk factor for choledocholithiasis recurrence. Read More

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Methodist Dallas Medical Center, 221 West Colorado Boulevard, Pavillion II, Suite 630, Dallas, TX 75208, USA.

Choledocholithiasis is a common disorder that is managed universally by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). For difficult or complex stones, ERCP with conventional techniques may fail to achieve biliary clearance in 10% to 15% of cases. This review summarizes the literature regarding the current available endoscopic techniques for complex stone disease, including mechanical lithotripsy, endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation, cholangioscopy-guided lithotripsy, and endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary access.

Technical Aspects of Bile Duct Evaluation and Exploration: An Update.

Surg Clin North Am 2019 Apr 10;99(2):259-282. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School, 185 South Orange Avenue, MSB G586, Newark, NJ 07103, USA. Electronic address:

Consensus guidelines recommend patients with symptomatic cholelithiasis and suspected choledocholithiasis have common bile duct exploration (CBDE) at the time of cholecystectomy to prevent downstream problems. Despite superiority of single-stage cholecystectomy with CBDE, 2-stage precholecystectomy/postcholecystectomy with endoscopic clearance of the duct is commonly practiced. This is related to inadequate training in minimally invasive techniques, lack of technical support for efficient and safe CBDE, and surgeons' inexperience with complex biliary pathologic condition.

Endoscopic interventions in the biliary system are defined by the elimination of an outflow obstruction such as in choledocholithiasis or the optimization of bile flow by means of stent drainage. Exclusive use of diagnostic endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) is now obsolete, but due to its minimally invasive approach, therapeutic ERC is the method of choice for intervention in appropriate indications. If access to the biliary system via the papilla is not possible, approaches as guided by endoscopic ultrasound appear to be a valid option for the experienced endoscopist. Read More

The timing of ERCP in acute biliary pancreatitis.

Rozhl Chir Winter 2019;98(1):10-13

Despite several studies, the role and timing of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in the case of acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) remains a subject of discussion.There is a clear indication of early ERCP within 72 hours in patients with ABP andcholedochal obstruction, moreover the ERCP within 24 hours in cases of cholangitis. However, the role of ERCP in patients with ABP without symptoms of cholangitis or concrements obstructing the bile duct is controversial. Read More

Role of Cholecystectomy in Choledocholithiasis Patients Underwent Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography.

Sci Rep 2019 Feb 18;9(1):2168. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.

There are no clinical guidelines for the timing of cholecystectomy (CCY) after performing therapeutic endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for choledocholithiasis. We tried to analyze the clinical practice patterns, medical expenses, and subsequent outcomes between the early CCY, delayed CCY, and no CCY groups of patients. 1827 choledocholithiasis patients who underwent therapeutic ERCP were selected from the nationwide population databases of two million random samples.

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

Duodenoscope combined with laparoscopy in treatment of biliary stones for a patient with situs inversus totalis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(7):e14272

Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi, China.

Rationale: Although endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques in situs inversus totalis (SIT) have been reported respectively, endo-laparoscopic combination therapy due to biliary lithiasis remains infrequent. We shared the experience regarding the operations with a video report and discussed the similarities and differences with the usual procedures, which proved to be challenging to some extent for SIT.

Patient Concerns: Herein we present a 72-year-old man with SIT who underwent endo-laparscopic combination therapy due to choledocholithiasis and gallbladder stone. Read More

Validation of Tokyo Guideline 2013 as Treatment of Acute Cholecystitis by Real World Data.

Dig Dis 2019 7;37(4):303-308. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Gastroenterology, Yamanashi Prefectural Central Hospital, Yamanashi, Japan.

Background: The Tokyo Guidelines (TG; 2013) indicated that emergency cholecystectomy is an important early treatment option for acute cholecystitis; however, surgical intervention is not necessarily indicated in patients with advanced age. We evaluated percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder aspiration (PTGBA), percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD), and the administration of antibiotics alone as treatment options for acute -cholecystitis.

Methods: From January 2010 to December 2017, 159 patients with acute cholecystitis were treated at our institution. Read More

Single-stage approach for the management of choledocolithiasis with concomitant cholelithiasis. Implementation of a protocol in a secondary hospital.

Surgeon 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery Unit, General Surgery Department, Joan XXIII University Hospital, Tarragona, Spain.

Background: Current evidence shows that single-stage treatment of concomitant choledocholithiasis and cholelithiasis is as effective and safe as two-stage treatment. However, several studies suggest that single-stage approach requires shorter hospitalization time and is more cost-effective than the two-stage approach, even though it requires considerable training. This study aimed to evaluate the implementation of a protocol for managing concomitant choledocholithiasis and cholelithiasis using single-stage treatment. Read More
