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

Comparison of 8-mm and 10-mm Diameter Fully-Covered Self-Expandable Metal Stents: A Multicenter Prospective Study in Patients with Distal Malignant Biliary Obstruction.

Dig Endosc 2019 Feb 3. Epub 2019 Feb 3.

Department of Endoscopy, Nagoya University Hospital, Nagoya, Japan.

Objectives: The time to recurrent biliary obstruction (TRBO) of unresectable distal malignant biliary obstruction is generally thought to be longer when a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) with a thicker inner diameter is used for drainage, but the dependence on the inner diameter using a fully covered SEMS (FCSEMS) is uncertain. The objective of this multicenter prospective study was to compare TRBO and adverse events, such as cholecystitis and pancreatitis, in treatment of patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstruction using 8-mm and 10-mm diameter FCSEMS.

Methods: Eighteen tertiary-care centers participated in the study. Read More

Pericholecystic Rim Sign and Gallbladder Nonvisualization Indicating Acute Gangrenous Cholecystitis on 99mTc-MIBI Myocardial Perfusion SPECT.

Clin Nucl Med 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Taleghani Educational Hospital, School of Medicine, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Rim sign is assumed as an ominous sign of gangrenous cholecystitis and mandates an urgent surgery. The main mechanism by which this phenomenon arises is increased regional blood flow as a result of an inflammatory process. Therefore, it is expected that this finding be visualized in varieties of scans with various radiopharmaceuticals, including myocardial perfusion scan with Tc-MIBI as an extracardiac finding.

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.

Usefulness of newly modified fully covered metallic stent of 12 mm in diameter and anti-migration feature for periampullary malignant biliary strictures: Comparison with conventional standard metal stent.

J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Digestive Disease Center and Research Institute, Department of Internal Medicine, SoonChunHyang University School of Medicine, Bucheon, Korea.

Backgrounds: Fully covered self-expandable metal stent (FCSEMS) are preferred for distal malignant biliary stricture (MBS). However, stent migration is a major adverse event of FCSEMS, especially for far distal MBS. We evaluated the usefulness of newly modified FCSEMS (M-FCSEMS) having 12 mm in diameter and anti-migration feature to minimize stent migration compared with the conventional FCSEMS (C-FCSEMS).
