EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy for patients with afferent loop syndrome: a comparison with EUS-guided gastroenterostomy or percutaneous drainage.

Surg Endosc 2021 Apr 28. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University Hospitals Gasthuisberg, University of Leuven, Herestraat 49, 3000, Leuven, Belgium.

Percutaneous transcystic removal of gallbladder and common bile duct stones: a narrative review.

Acta Radiol 2021 Apr 12:2841851211006915. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Department of Upper GI Surgery, 6634University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, Plymouth, UK.

The incidence of gallstone-related complications is rising, thus leading to increases in waiting list times for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) provides immediate biliary drainage and may be used as an emergency option in a critically unwell patient as a bridge to surgery, or as the management option of a patient who is not fit for surgery. However, a significant number of these patients may be readmitted after PC with recurrent acute cholecystitis or pancreatitis, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. Read More

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2021 Apr 12. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

First Department of Internal Medicine, Gifu University Hospital, Gifu, Japan.

Background: Endoscopic transpapillary gallbladder drainage (EGBD) has been reported as an effective gallbladder drainage treatment option for acute cholecystitis in high-risk surgical patients.

Optimal drainage of anastomosis stricture after living donor liver transplantation.

Surg Endosc 2021 Apr 1. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 50-1 Yonsei-ro, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, 03722, Republic of Korea.

Background: Endoscopic biliary stenting (EBS) with a fully covered, self-expandable metallic stent (FC-SEMS) and plastic stent (PS) is safe and efficient for biliary anastomotic strictures (ASs) after a deceased donor liver transplantation. Limited studies have investigated the use of FC-SEMSs for biliary strictures post-living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). We compared the resolution rate of biliary ASs post-LDLT and the 12-month recurrence rates post-stent removal between EBS with an FC-SEMS, PS, and percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD).

Bedside Percutaneous Approach in a Critically Ill ICU Patient with Complex Pancreatobiliary Disorder Followed by Endoscopic Approach: Lessons Learnt from a Tertiary Referral Center.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2021 Jan-Apr;15(1):210-217. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Digestive Disease and GI Oncology Center, Medistra Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Pancreatobiliary disorder is a challenging clinical condition, especially when this condition is causing severe infection or biliary sepsis, and sometimes it requires intensive care unit (ICU) treatment. Biliary drainage is the mainstay of therapy; however, the choice of the drainage method is dependent on the patient's clinical condition and the disease itself. A 79-year-old female was transferred on a ventilator to our ICU from another hospital due to biliary sepsis, a large common bile duct stone, and an infected pancreatic pseudocyst. Read More
