Emphysematous cholecystitis following routine colonoscopy.

J Surg Case Rep 2020 Apr 29;2020(4):rjaa091. Epub 2020 Apr 29.

Department of Surgery, Tamworth Rural and Referral Hospital, Tamworth, New South Wales, Australia.

Cholecystitis is a rare sequela of colonoscopy, the relationship between which has not yet been defined. This case study reviews a rural elderly patient who developed right upper quadrant pain following routine colonoscopy. He developed emphysematous cholecystitis, which required laparoscopy with conversion to open via Kocher's incision and underwent a subtotal cholecystectomy due to the severity of necrosis and inflammation.

Safety and Efficacy of Percutaneous Cholecystostomy for Emphysematous Cholecystitis.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2020 27;10. Epub 2020 Mar 27.

Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Objective: The objective of the study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) in treating critically ill patients with emphysematous cholecystitis who were deemed poor surgical candidates.

Materials And Methods: The Institutional Review Board exemption was obtained for this retrospective study. Patients with emphysematous cholecystitis who were deemed to be poor operative candidates by the treating surgeon and underwent PC placement between May 2008 and April 2017 at a single institution were identified through a medical records search.

An Important Gallbladder Pathology Mimicking Gallbladder Carcinoma: Xanthogranulomatous Cholecystitis: A Single Tertiary Center Experience.

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 2020 Mar 16. Epub 2020 Mar 16.

Ministry of Health, University of Health Science, Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis (XGC) is an uncommon, focal, or diffuse destructive inflammatory disease of the gallbladder mimicking or being together with the gallbladder carcinoma. This study aimed to evaluate the diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of patients with XGC as a single tertiary center experience in the light of literature.

Materials And Methods: Data about 34 patients with XGC identified after evaluating 2212 cholecystectomy specimens between January 2013 and December 2018 in a single tertiary center were documented to determine demographics (sex, age), clinical symptoms and findings, biochemical and imaging clues and operative findings, duration of hospitalization, postoperative complications, and histopathologic results.

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Bridgeport Hospital at Yale New Haven Health, 167 Grant St, Bridgeport, CT 06610, USA.

Gallstone disease is the term commonly used to refer to gallstones that cause symptoms. There is a myriad of complications that can arise from gallstones: acute cholecystitis, xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis, emphysematous cholecystitis, gallbladder wall perforations, pericholecystic abscesses, Mirizzi syndrome, cholecystoenteric fistulas, choledocholithiasis, gallstone pancreatitis, porcelain gallbladder, gallbladder malignancies, and many more. The aim of this pictorial review is to revisit how multimodality imaging can help with the diagnosis of gallstone disease. Read More

C-reactive Protein Is the Best Biomarker to Predict Advanced Acute Cholecystitis and Conversion to Open Surgery. A Prospective Cohort Study of 556 Cases.

J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Nov 25. Epub 2019 Nov 25.

Depatment of Surgery, Mohamed Tahar Maamouri Hospital, Nabeul, Tunisia.

Background: White blood cell levels (WBC) is the only biologic determinant criterion of the severity assessment of acute cholecystitis (AC) in the revised Tokyo Guidelines 2018 (TG18). The aims of this study were to evaluate the discriminative powers of common inflammatory markers (neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and C-reactive protein (CRP)) compared with WBC for the severity of AC, and the risk for conversion to open surgery and to determine their diagnostic cutoff levels.

Methods: This was a prospective cohort study. Read More

Division of Medical Education, Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI, USA.

Malignant melanoma is an aggressive tumor with a high potential for distant metastases, including spread to the gallbladder where it represents more than half of all metastases detected at autopsy. Yet, it is rarely symptomatic in life and is a rare cause of acute cholecystitis. Emphysematous cholecystitis is a rare, potentially fatal variant of acute cholecystitis characterized by the presence of gas in the gallbladder lumen or wall. Read More

Department of Gastroenterology, Hirosaki University Graduate School of Medicine, Hirosaki, Japan.

An 88-year-old woman with dementia was diagnosed as having perforated emphysematous cholecystitis with localized peritonitis. Because she was at high risk for surgery, gallbladder drainage was required before surgery. Endoscopic transpapillary gallbladder drainage instead of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage was performed because bile could leak from the puncture site to free space around the perforated gallbladder.

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

Risk assessment scales and predictors for simple versus severe cholecystitis in performing laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Department of Surgery, Daejeon St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Daejeon, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Background: Because acute cholecystitis has a different prognosis according to the degree of inflammation, early detection and prompt operation of severe cholecystitis are critical to the success of treatment. However, computed tomography (CT) has a low discriminative value for differentiating between simple and severe cholecystitis. Therefore, to enhance the diagnostic accuracy of CT scan, the imaging studies should be supplemented by preoperative clinical variables. Read More
