Background: Current guidelines do not specifically address optimal antibiotic duration following cholecystostomy. This study compares outcomes for short-course (<7 days) and long-course (≥7 days) antibiotics post-cholecystostomy.

Methods: This was a retrospective review of cholecystostomy patients (≥18 years) admitted (1/1/2007-12/31/2017) to one healthcare system. Read More

Post-ERCP Emphysematous Cholecystitis in a Young Woman: A Rare and Potentially Fatal Complication.

Case Rep Gastrointest Med 2017 21;2017:1971457. Epub 2017 Mar 21.

Department of Gastroenterology, Tallaght Hospital and Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.

A 45-year-old woman with suspected Functional Biliary Sphincter Disorder (FBSD) developed related emphysematous cholecystitis after ERCP. A low index of suspicion for emphysematous cholecystitis in this young, otherwise healthy woman led to a significant delay in making the correct diagnosis, and air in the gallbladder was wrongly attributed to a possible gallbladder perforation. ERCP is associated with significant risks, particularly in patients with FBSD, where diagnostic uncertainty renders the balance of risk versus benefit even more critical. Read More

A selective antibiotic prophylaxis policy for laparoscopic cholecystectomy is effective in minimising infective complications.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2013 Jul;95(5):345-8

Cwm Taf Health Board, UK.

Introduction: It has been demonstrated previously that the identification of bactibilia during cholecystectomy is associated with the presence of one or more risk factors: acute cholecystitis, common duct stones, emergency surgery, intraoperative findings and age >70 years. Current evidence-based guidance on antibiotic prophylaxis during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is based on elective procedures and does not take into account these factors. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of a selective antibiotic prophylaxis policy limited to high risk patients undergoing LC with the development of port site infections as the primary endpoint.

Double trouble: how big a problem is redundant anaerobic antibiotic coverage in Veterans Affairs medical centres?

J Antimicrob Chemother 2012 Jun 7;67(6):1537-9. Epub 2012 Mar 7.

VA Salt Lake City Health Care System, IDEAS Center, Salt Lake City, UT 84148, USA.

Objectives: To assess the prevalence of, and the variation in, avoidable use of metronidazole in the Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system

Methods: Barcode Medication Administration (BCMA) data were retrospectively assessed for all patients hospitalized between January 2006 and December 2010 in acute-care wards of all VA medical centres (VAMCs) with complete BCMA data and at least 10 acute-care non-intensive care unit (ICU) beds. Potentially avoidable metronidazole days of therapy (DOT) were defined as the administration of metronidazole with another anti-anaerobic antibiotic on the same day for at least two consecutive days during the same hospitalization. Metronidazole was not considered redundant in combination with another anti-anaerobic agent within 28 days after a positive test for Clostridium difficile and during hospitalizations associated with discharge diagnosis codes for cholecystitis or cholangitis.

Abdominal infections in patients with acute leukaemia: a prospective study applying ultrasonography and microbiology.

Br J Haematol 2002 May;117(2):351-8

Department of Internal Medicine I, Institute of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, University of Bonn, Sigmund-Freud-Strasse 25, 53105 Bonn, Germany.

A prospective study of 62 chemotherapy-induced neutropenic episodes in patients with acute leukaemia was conducted to determine the incidence and causes of abdominal infections, and to assess the diagnostic value of the combined use of ultrasonography (US) and microbiology. Each patient underwent US of liver, gallbladder and complete bowel before chemotherapy, on days 2-4 after the end of chemotherapy and in cases of fever, diarrhoea or abdominal pain. US was combined with a standardized clinical examination and a broad spectrum of microbiological investigations. Read More

Ann Thorac Surg 2000 Dec;70(6):2143-5

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Helsinki University Central Hospital, Finland.

Esophageal perforation and mediastinal gas gangrene developed in a 55-year-old male after the endoscopic ethanol injection of a Mallory-Weiss ulcer. Initially, extensive gangrene of the esophagus and the mediastinum was treated by esophagectomy; however, an abundance of Clostridium perfringens in the Gram stain verified the presence of gas gangrene. Subsequently, the patient was transferred to a hyperbaric oxygen center, wherein a total of seven hyperbaric treatments were administered. Read More
