Clinical and Survival Outcomes Using Percutaneous Cholecystostomy Tube Alone or Subsequent Interval Cholecystectomy to Treat Acute Cholecystitis.

J Gastrointest Surg 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Department of General Surgery, St. Vincent's University Hospital, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Background: Percutaneous cholecystostomy (PCT) is a safe method of gallbladder drainage in the setting of severe or complicated acute cholecystitis (AC), particularly in patients who are high-risk surgical candidates. Small case series suggest that PCT aids resolution of acute cholecystitis in up to 90% of patients. However, reluctance is observed in utilising PCT more frequently, due to concerns that we are committing comorbid patients to an interval surgical procedure for which they may not be suitable.

Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Biliary Drainage for Benign Biliary Diseases.

Clin Endosc 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Gastroenterology, Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

Although endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the first-line treatment for benign biliary diseases, this procedure is technically difficult in some conditions such as a surgically altered anatomy and gastric outlet obstruction. After a failed ERCP, a surgical or a percutaneous approach is selected as a rescue procedure; however, various endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided interventions are increasingly utilized in pancreatobiliary diseases, including EUS-guided rendezvous for failed biliary cannulation, EUS-guided antegrade treatment for stone management, and EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy for anastomotic strictures in patients with a surgically altered anatomy. There are some technical hurdles in EUS-guided interventions for benign biliary diseases owing to the difficulty in puncturing a relatively small bile duct and in subsequent guidewire manipulation, as well as the lack of dedicated devices.

Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiobiopsy.

Radiol Bras 2019 Jan-Feb;52(1):41-42

Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Most tumors of the biliary tract are too small to have specific imaging characteristics or for percutaneous puncture to provide sufficient material for diagnosis. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage, in addition to being a well-established technique in the treatment of obstructive jaundice, provides adequate access for sampling obstructive lesions. In cases of biliary lesions, percutaneous transhepatic biopsy of the biliary tract has proven to be a useful diagnostic technique, with a reported accuracy of over 90% at some referral centers.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage of the biliary system: Techniques, indications and future perspectives.

World J Gastrointest Endosc 2019 Feb;11(2):103-114

Hepato-Gastroenterology Department, Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc, Brussels 1200, Belgium.

Over the last decade, endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has evolved into a widely accepted alternative to the percutaneous approach in cases of biliary obstruction with failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography (ERCP). The available evidence suggests that, in experienced hands, EUS-BD might even replace ERCP as the first-line procedure in specific situations such as malignant distal bile duct obstruction. The aim of this review is to summarize the available data on EUS-BD and propose an evidence-based algorithm clarifies the role of the different EUS-BD techniques in the management of benign and malignant biliary obstructive disease.

Endoscopic Retrograde Biliary Drainage Causes Intra-Abdominal Abscess in Pancreaticoduodenectomy Patients: An Important But Neglected Risk Factor.

Ann Surg Oncol 2019 Apr 23;26(4):1086-1092. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Surgery, National Taiwan University Hospital and College of Medicine, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Patients with periampullary cancer frequently suffer obstructive jaundice and commonly require preoperative biliary drainage (PBD) for relief and to avoid related complications. Although research has established a correlation between PBD and surgical wound infection, the impact of PBD on major infectious complications (intra-abdominal abscess [IAA]) and overall mortality remains debatable. We hypothesized that PBD could lead to IAA and mortality, and evaluated their correlation in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). Read More

Living-donor Liver Retransplantation Using the Vessels of the Previous Allograft by Means of Intragraft Dissection.

Transplant Proc 2018 Dec 18;50(10):3562-3563. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

National Cancer Center, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, Korea.

Retransplantation with the use of a living-donor graft can be the only therapeutic option for patients with irreversible graft failure, especially in regions with limited access to deceased donors, but it can be technically demanding because of severe adhesion around the hepatic hilum and inferior vena cava. We introduce an effective and safe technique to overcome this challenge for right-lobe living-donor liver retransplantation by using the vessels of the previous right liver allograft with the use of intragraft dissection. The technique was used in 2 critically ill patients undergoing the graft failure. Read More

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided choledochoduodenostomy with a lumen-apposing metal stent through an uncovered metal duodenal stent.

Endosc Int Open 2018 Dec 23;6(12):E1395-E1397. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Hopital Avicenne, Department of Gastroenterology, Bobigny, France.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in patients with a preexisting duodenal stent is particularly challenging and has a low success rate. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has been increasingly used as an alternative to percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage after failed ERCP. EUS-guided choledochoduodenostomy (EUS-CD) and EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (EUS-HGS) have been reported to have similar efficacity. Read More
