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.

Palliative endoscopic drainage of malignant stenosis of biliary confluence: Efficiency of multiple drainage approach to drain a maximum of liver segments.

United European Gastroenterol J 2019 Feb 27;7(1):52-59. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Endoscopy Unit, Paoli Calmettes Institute, Marseille, France.

Background And Aim: More than 50% of the liver should be drained in case of unresectable hilar liver stenosis; however, it remains unclear if the use of several types of drainage (endoscopic retrograde cholangiography and pancreatography, percutaneous-biliary drainage, endoscopic ultrasound biliary drainage (EUS-BD)), allowing better drainage, has an impact on survival. The aim of our study was to evaluate the percentage of liver drained and its correlation on survival whatever the drainage technique used.

Patients And Methods: This study was a retrospective analysis of a prospective registry of patients with malignant drainage stenosis of the hilum. Read More

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

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.

Management of Acute Gallstone Cholangitis after Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass with Laparoscopic Transgastric Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography.

Obes Surg 2019 Feb;29(2):747-748

Service de Chirurgie Générale et Endocrinienne, CHU Lille, Hôpital Huriez, Rue Michel Polonowski, 59000, Lille, France.

Background: The incidence of biliary lithiasis is increased after bariatric surgery due to rapid weight loss [1]. Trans-oral endoscopic management in cases of common bile duct gallstone complication is not possible in patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) due to the modified anatomy. Access to the biliary tree after RYGB with a classical direct surgical approach of common bile duct and choledocoscopy can be used, but may be complicated in situations of acute cholangitis because of the fragility of common duct, or in cases of previous cholecystectomy.

Recurrent biliary dissemination of colon cancer liver metastasis: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Oct 27;12(1):314. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Department of Medical Laboratory, National Hospital Organization Kanazawa Medical Center, 1-1 Shimoishibiki, Kanazawa, 920-8650, Japan.

Background: Most colorectal cancer liver metastases form nodules within the hepatic parenchyma, and hepatectomy is the only radical treatment for synchronous metastases. There is concern about intrabiliary tumor growth which may affect the surgical margin, resulting in local recurrence after hepatectomy for colorectal cancer liver metastasis; however, there has been no report of the dissemination in the bile duct after hepatectomy.

Clinical aspects of bile culture in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jun;97(26):e11234

Department of Surgery, Biomedical Research Institute, Pusan National University Hospital, Busan, Korea.

Bile is aseptic; under conditions of no external influx, there is a less than 30% chance of isolating bacteria even in acute cholecystitis. This study was conducted to evaluate the incidence of biliary microflora and most common biliary microflora and resistance to antibiotics in patients with cholecystitis, as well as predict situations that do not require the use of prophylactic antibiotics.Bile samples were collected for culture using standard methods during all cholecystectomies performed from January 2015 to December 2015 in the Department of Surgery, Pusan National University Hospital.

Endoscopic biliary drainage management for children with serious cholangitis caused by congenital biliary dilatation.

Pediatr Surg Int 2018 Aug 5;34(8):897-901. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Department of Gastroenterology, Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, Nanjing, 210008, China.

Congenital biliary dilatation (CBD) is usually associated with complications such as recurrent cholangitis, manifested as abdominal pain, vomiting, and jaundice. If cholangitis cannot be controlled by conservative treatment, a good therapeutic effect can be obtained through percutaneous biliary drainage or open T-tube drainage. We aimed to evaluate our experiences in biliary drainage through endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in children with cholangitis caused by CBD. Read More

Sang Woo Cha

Korean J Gastroenterol 2018 05;71(5):247-252

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, Soon Chun Hyang University Seoul Hospital, Soon Chun Hyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Intrahepatic duct (IHD) stone is the presence of calculi within the intrahepatic bile duct specifically located proximal to the confluence of the left and right hepatic ducts. This stone is characterized by its intractable nature and frequent recurrence, requiring multiple therapeutic interventions. Without proper treatment, biliary strictures and retained stones can lead to repeated episodes of cholangitis, liver abscesses, secondary biliary cirrhosis, portal hypertension, and death from sepsis or hepatic failure.

Authors:
V Zimmer

Clin Res Hepatol Gastroenterol 2018 Apr 20. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

Department of Medicine, Marienhausklinik St. Josef Kohlhof, 66539 Neunkirchen, Germany; Department of Medicine II, Saarland University Medical Center, Saarland University, 66421 Homburg, Germany. Electronic address:

There is an increasing rivalry between percutaneous transhepatic (PTBD) vs. endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) as rescue techniques after failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) access. While EUS-BD procedures hold a bright future, innovations in PTBD technique are still possible and clinically meaningful, at least so, under the a conceptual framework understanding PTBD as a bridging, anatomy-respecting technology for definitive biliary metal stenting.

Differences in efficacy of uncovered self-expandable metal stent in relation to placement in the management of malignant distal biliary obstruction.

Saudi J Gastroenterol 2018 Mar-Apr;24(2):82-86

Department of Interventional Radiology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, People's Republic of China.

Background/aims: Metal stent insertion is a common palliative treatment for distal malignant biliary obstruction (MBO) but whether placement across the sphincter of Oddi (SO) causes more complications or shorter survival is in question. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of percutaneous uncovered self-expandable metal stent placement above and across the SO in patients with distal MBO.

Patients And Methods: We retrospectively studied 59 patients who underwent uncovered metal stent placement for distal MBO between January 2012 and March 2016. Read More
