Biliary duplication cyst with heterotopic gastric mucosa resulting in obstruction of the biliary system: a case report.

J Pediatr Surg 2012 Jun;47(6):e5-8

Section of Pediatric Surgery, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-5245, USA.

Biliary tract duplication cysts with heterotopic gastric mucosa are rare congenital anomalies, with our case representing only the fourth reported case in the literature. An 8-year-old girl with several months of abdominal pain was found to have a complex cystic mass communicating with the biliary system via the common hepatic duct. Intraoperatively, inflammation caused by the cystic mass was found to have resulted in a Mirizzi-like syndrome, with a nearly complete obstruction at the confluence of the left and right hepatic ducts.

The "inside approach of the gallbladder" is an alternative to the classic Calot's triangle dissection for a safe operation in severe cholecystitis.

Surg Endosc 2010 Oct 25;24(10):2626-32. Epub 2010 Mar 25.

Division of Hepato-Biliary and Pancreatic Surgery, Department of Abdominal Surgery and Transplantation, Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc, Université catholique de Louvain, Avenue Hippocrate, 10, 1200, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: External dissection of Calot's triangle and the gallbladder associated with complete cholecystectomy is considered the gold standard technique to achieve a safe cholecystectomy. However, in severe acute or chronic cholecystitis, the laparoscopic application of this standard technique may be technically difficult, with an increased risk of bile duct injury, even in the hands of an experienced surgeon.

Methods: In a consecutive series of 552 cholecystectomies, 39 patients (7. Read More

Combination of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and computed tomography for preoperative diagnosis of the Mirizzi syndrome.

J Comput Assist Tomogr 2009 Jul-Aug;33(4):636-40

Department of Radiology, Kangdong Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Objective: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of combined magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and computed tomography (CT) for preoperative diagnosis of Mirizzi syndrome.

Materials And Methods: Fifty-two patients with surgically proven Mirizzi syndrome (n = 13) and cholecystitis without evidence for Mirizzi syndrome (n = 39) underwent both MRCP using single-shot turbo spin echo and 3-dimensional turbo spin echo sequences and CT. Two blinded observers independently and retrospectively reviewed the combination of MRCP and CT images and CT images alone. Read More
