Bile ileus with migration of the gallstone into the colon through cholecystocolonic fistula is rare. The diagnosis is difficult and often late. We here report the case of a 89-year old patient with a history of sigmoid diverticular disease presenting with colonic obstruction associated with bile ileus caused by migration of a large gallstone through cholecystocolonic fistula. Abdominal CT scan allowed the diagnosis. The patient underwent surgical extraction of the gallstone with sigmoidotomy followed by sigmoidostomy with subsequent recovery of the digestive continuity...

We aim to review the available literature on obese patients treated with ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) in order to prevent gallstone formation after bariatric surgery. A systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, Cochrane library, and Scopus databases, in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. Eight studies met the inclusion criteria incorporating 1355 patients. Random-effects meta-analysis showed a lower incidence of gallstone formation in patients taking UDCA. Subgroup analysis reported fewer cases of gallstone disease in the UDCA group in relation to different bariatric procedures, doses of administered UDCA, and time from bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: There is limited published data describing the nature of surgical admissions at a regional level in the South African context. Worcester Hospital General Surgery has introduced an electronic online database to manage its surgical services. This study uses that database to evaluate the surgical burden of disease for the Cape Winelands East and Overberg districts of the Western Cape. METHOD: Admissions data were prospectively captured from February 2012 to January 2016, then retrospectively reviewed and classified into 5 types: (1) elective surgery/investigations (ESI); (2) trauma; (3) burns; (4) non-traumatic surgical emergencies (NTSE); (5) unplanned readmission within 30 days...

BACKGROUND: Gallbladder disease is a common and costly pathology worldwide. The development of gallstone disease varies among population groups around the world. Epidemiological studies from African countries, including South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda suggest that the rate of gallbladder disease is low in the African population. Very little has been published in the last 20 years about the status of gallbladder disease in South Africa. METHOD: 34294 cholecystectomy specimens were obtained from the NHLS (2003-2015) database...

Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica serovar Typhi is the aetiological agent of typhoid or enteric fever. In a subset of individuals, S. Typhi colonizes the gallbladder causing an asymptomatic chronic infection. Nonetheless, these asymptomatic carriers provide a reservoir for further spreading of the disease. Epidemiological studies performed in regions where S. Typhi is endemic, revealed that the majority of chronically infected carriers also harbour gallstones, which in turn, have been indicated as a primary predisposing factor for the onset of gallbladder cancer (GC)...

PURPOSE: An incident episode of acute pancreatitis is often followed by recurrent attacks and/or progression to chronic pancreatitis, especially if the etiology is non-gallstone-related. We examined whether overall diet quality influences the natural history of non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis. METHODS: Three hundred and eighty-six individuals (born 1914-1952) were included in a prospective study, all of whom had an incident diagnosis of non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis in the Swedish National Patient Register between 1998 and 2013...

OBJECTIVES: Cholecystectomy after endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) is associated with improved outcomes compared to ES alone, however randomized trials have included mainly fit surgical candidates. Our objective was to assess the impact of cholecystectomy after ES among elderly patients, in whom the perceived risks of surgery may be increased and the prevailing bias may be to defer cholecystectomy. METHODS: We performed adjusted analyses comparing clinical outcomes in patients ≥65 years of age who did and did not undergo follow-up cholecystectomy after endoscopic sphincterotomy for choledocholithiasis, ascending cholangitis, or gallstone pancreatitis...

Cholelithiasis is a kind of common and multiple diseases. In recent years, traditional laparotomy has been challenged by a minimally invasive surgery. Through literature review, the therapeutic method, effect, and complications of minimally invasive treatment of intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones by combining our practical experience were summarized as follows. (1) For intrahepatic bile duct stones, the operation may be selected by laparoscopic liver resection, laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE), or percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy...

BACKGROUND: Early definitive treatment (cholecystectomy or endoscopic sphincterotomy in the same admission or within 2 weeks after discharge) of gallstone disease after a biliary attack of acute pancreatitis is standard of care. This study investigated whether compliance with early definitive treatment for acute gallstone pancreatitis can be used as a care quality indicator for the condition. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted using the Hospital Episode Statistics database...

This report describes a patient who presented with a large gallstone obstructing the duodenal bulb, with the chief complaint of acute on chronic abdominal pain. Classically, this is known as Bouveret's syndrome or a gallstone ileus of the duodenum. Our patient's current health status presented a challenge, with the presence of several comorbidities, particularly a large abdominal aortic aneurism. We chose an open procedure for this reason. The stone was removed through a laparotomy, and the cholecystoduodenal fistula that the stone used to pass into the small bowel was repaired...

BACKGROUND: Gallstone disease affects 15-20% of the general population and up to 20% of these patients present common bile duct stones. AIM: This observational study reports our experience on routine cysticotomy and flushing of the cystic duct in patients with low risk of common duct stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed 731 patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy between September 2013 and September 2015. RESULTS: Patients were preoperatively stratified on the clinical risk; those presenting with low preoperative risk of common bile duct stones were referred to undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy and routine cysticotomy with bile duct flushing...

This study aims to evaluate the prevalence, risk factors, and relative risk of gallstones and associated disease in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). Medical records of 311 patients diagnosed with UC between January 2004 and February 2015 were reviewed retrospectively. To assess relative risk, 622 patients matched by age, sex, and body mass index were included as a control group. Gallstones were detected in 8% (25/311) of UC patients and in 3.9% (24/622) of the control group. Prevalence was significantly higher in the UC group (odds ratio [OR], 2...

- Bariatric surgery is performed in patients with a body mass index (BMI) > 40kg/m2, or BMI > 35 kg/m2 with obesity-related comorbidities. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are the most frequently used procedures.- On average, patients have lost 25-27% of their original weight 10 years after surgery.- Obesity-related comorbidities improve dramatically in many patients following surgery. The effect is most noticeable in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of gallstone ileus (GI) consists of surgical removal of the impacted bilestone with or without cholecystectomy and repair of the biliodigestive fistula. The objective of this study was to assess whether sparing patients a definitive biliary procedure adversely influenced the outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with a diagnosis of GI were reviewed. Two groups were identified: patients who underwent a definitive biliary procedure with relieving the intestinal obstruction (group 1/G1) and those who did not have a definitive biliary procedure (group 2/G2)...

BACKGROUND: Globally, the number of people aged 80 years or over, the "oldest old," is the fastest growing population group. Because of the strong association between age and gallstone disease, both prevalence and incidence of this disease are increasing. The feasibility of the cholecystectomy in octogenarians has been evaluated in several studies that confirmed the safety of the operation. However, the safety of this procedure in nonagenarians is still controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety of cholecystectomies in nonagenarians and identify related predictors for postoperative hospital length of stay (LOS) and in-hospital mortality up to 30 days postoperatively...
