Biliary reconstruction and complications in living donor liver transplantation.

Int J Surg 2020 May 5. Epub 2020 May 5.

Medanta Institute of Liver Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine, Medanta-The Medicity, New Delhi, India.

For a technically successful liver transplant (LT), secure bile duct anastomosis to prevent biliary complications (BC's) like biliary anastomotic stricture (BAS) and bile leak (BL) is mandatory. BC's after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) are relatively more common compared to deceased donor LT (DDLT), particularly owing to surgical factors (small diameter, and/or multiple bile duct openings on the graft), and non-surgical factors (immunologic reactions). Adequate blood supply to the bile duct both in donor and recipient, meticulous anastomotic technique, mucosal eversion for better approximation thus avoiding lesser fibrosis, proper use of internal or external stent drainage, and tension-free anastomosis, may contribute to the decrease of BC's after LDLT.

Conversion of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage to endoscopic ultrasonography-guided hepaticogastrostomy under balloon-targeted selective needle puncture.

Dig Endosc 2020 May 6. Epub 2020 May 6.

Department of Gastroenterology, Ajou University School of Medicine, Suwon, Republic of Korea.

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided hepaticogastrostomy is a rescue technique for internal drainage when percutaneous antegrade biliary stenting (PABS) fails after percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). However, this may be difficult under bile duct decompression despite contrast injection through the PTBD catheter because the sonographic ring-down artifact caused by micro-air bubbles in the contrast may hinder the EUS delineation of the intrahepatic bile duct.

Department of Medical Ultrasound, Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Ultrasound, First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-Sen University, 58 Zhongshan Rd 2, Guangzhou, 510080 China.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous transhepatic cholangial drainage (PTCD) and consequent percutaneous US cholangiography in managing the dilated biliary tracts of children who have undergone hepatobiliary surgery. Sixteen children (11 boys, five girls; age range, 3-144 months) who underwent hepatobiliary surgery from December 2016 to October 2018 and had US evidence of biliary dilatation were included. All patients had undergone US-guided PTCD because of elevated postoperative serum bilirubin levels or bile duct infection. Read More

Guidelines for biliary stents and drains.

Chin Clin Oncol 2020 Feb;9(1)

The Bili Project Foundation, Pleasanton, CA, USA.

Hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers can cause malignant biliary constriction of the bile ducts, a lethal complication that leads to obstruction of the bile ducts, cholangitis, sepsis, and death. Patients may present with symptoms such as painless jaundice, dark or amber urine, light colored stools, and weight loss. These patients often have locally advanced disease at presentation, and surgical intervention is often not possible. Read More

Complex liver retransplantation to treat graft loss due to long-term biliary tract complication after liver transplantation: A case report.

World J Clin Cases 2020 Feb;8(3):568-576

Department of Liver Transplant, Tianjin First Central Hospital, Tianjin 300192, China.

Background: Loss of graft function after liver transplantation (LT) inevitably requires liver retransplant. Retransplantation of the liver (ReLT) remains controversial because of inferior outcomes compared with the primary orthotopic LT (OLT). Meanwhile, if accompanied by vascular complications such as arterial and portal vein (PV) stenosis or thrombosis, it will increase difficulties of surgery. Read More

Tailored access to the hepatobiliary system in post-bariatric patients: a tertiary care bariatric center experience.

Surg Endosc 2020 Jan 28. Epub 2020 Jan 28.

Department of Visceral Surgery and Medicine, Inselspital, Bern University Hospital and University of Bern, 3010, Bern, Switzerland.

Background: In bariatric surgery patients, pancreaticobiliary access via endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is technically challenging and the optimal approach for the evaluation and treatment of biliary tree-related pathologies has been debated. Besides laparoscopy-assisted ERCP (LA-ERCP) as standard of care, EUS-directed transgastric ERCP (EDGE) and hepaticogastrostomy (HGS) with placement of a fully covered metal stent have emerged as novel techniques. The objective of this study was to evaluate safety and efficacy of three different endoscopic approaches (LA-ERCP, EDGE, and HGS) in bariatric patients. Read More
