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

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

Against the Odds: A Novel Technique to Perform Cholangiography from a Percutaneous Approach through the Cystic Duct.

Cureus 2018 Nov 12;10(11):e3577. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Interventional Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

Percutaneous cholangiography is typically performed via a transhepatic approach and is reserved for patients with contraindications to traditional cholangiogram imaging modalities. For those with suspected cholelithiasis or choledocholithiasis who cannot undergo magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis, percutaneous cholecystostomy with cholangiogram is a viable option. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography may also be precluded due to anatomic or obstructive limitations, in which case, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) may be indicated for diagnosis.

Long term outcome of EUS-based strategy for suspected choledocholithiasis but negative CT finding.

Scand J Gastroenterol 2018 Oct - Nov;53(10-11):1381-1387. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

a Department of Medicine , Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine , Seoul , Korea.

Objectives: The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) guidelines offered the risk-stratified approach in suspected choledocholithiasis. Previous studies have raised concern about the insufficient accuracy of the guideline, especially in high probability group. The purposes of this study were to authenticate the stratification and clinical predictors of the guidelines for suspected choledocholithiasis with no visible choledocholithiasis on computed tomography (CT) and to make clear the clinical strategy of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS).

Preoperative predictors of choledocholithiasis in patients presenting with acute calculous cholecystitis.

Gastrointest Endosc 2018 Nov 19. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

University of Michigan Health Care System, Ann Arbor, Michigan; VA Healthcare System, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Background And Aims: Markedly increased liver chemistries in patients presenting with acute calculous cholecystitis (AC) often prompt an evaluation for concomitant choledocholithiasis (CDL). However, current guidelines directing the workup for CDL fail to address this unique population. The aims of this study are to define the range of presenting laboratory values and imaging findings in AC, develop a model to predict the presence of concurrent CDL, and develop a management algorithm that can be easily applied on presentation.

Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology Department, ASST Santi Paolo e Carlo, Via A di Rudinì 8, 20142, Milan, Italy.

Performed on either an elective or urgent basis, cholecystectomy currently represents the most common abdominal operation due to the widespread use of laparoscopy and the progressively expanded indications. Compared to traditional open surgery, laparoscopic cholecystectomy minimised the duration of hospitalisation and perioperative mortality. Albeit generally considered safe, cholecystectomy may result in adverse outcomes with non-negligible morbidity. Read More

Intraoperative cholangiography versus magnetic resonance cholangiography in patients with mild acute biliary pancreatitis: A prospective study in a second-level hospital.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(44):e12976

Department of General Surgery, Hospital Civil de Guadalajara "Dr. Juan I. Menchaca", Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

Cholecystectomy is the only definitive management of pancreatitis secondary to gallstone disease. Approximately 20% to 30% of patients with acute biliary pancreatitis (ABP) will have persistent common bile duct (CBD) stones. Therefore, choosing a method for the early diagnosis of choledocholithiasis is essential to reduce waiting days for surgery and hospital stay in these patients. Read More

Transjejunal laparoscopic-assisted ERCP in Roux-en-Y patient: the new right path.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2019 Feb 24;101(2):e45-e47. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Clinica Chirurgica Generale, Università di Parma , Parma , Italy.

The incidence of biliary lithiasis after gastric surgery seems to be higher than in the general population. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) allows several biliary and pancreatic pathologies to be dealt with; however, in patients with an altered anatomy of the upper and mid gastrointestinal tract, this endoscopic manoeuvre can be extremely challenging. We report a case of a 79-year-old woman with previous subtotal gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y reconstruction, admitted with a diagnosis of cholecystitis and choledocolithiasis. Read More
