Stent bilary

Margaret G Keane, Neale J Marlow, Stephen P Pereira
Indeterminate bilary strictures present the clinician with a wide differential diagnosis. Histological confirmation is usually required for treatment, but tissue acquisition remains challenging. Novel developments in endoscopic technology, such as single operator cholangioscopy and confocal endomicroscopy, have led to improvements in diagnostic accuracy in recent years. In patients with non-resectable malignant biliary obstruction, effective biliary decompression improves symptoms and enables patients to undergo palliative therapies...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: ERCP during pregnancy is always challenging for the entire team performing the endoscopic intervention. In this study techniques and different interventional aspects used at several centres about the clinical experience on ERCP in pregnant women are analyzed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: the practice on ERCP in pregnant women in six centres during a period of ten years is reported. RESULTS: eleven patients were included in the study...

HISTORY AND ADMISSION FINDINGS: An 81-year-old man presented with jaundice and a pancreatic tumor. 6 years ago transperitoneal nephrectomy had been performed because of a clear cell renal cancer (pT3b pN0 pM0). INVESTIGATIONS: Laboratory tests showed normocytic anemia and signs of cholestasis. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a well-defined mass of the head of the pancreas with a diameter of about 4 cm, and a previously diagnosed adrenal mass which had slightly increased in size...

INTRODUCTION: Biliary complications (BC) after liver transplantation (LTx) are serious problems with an incidence rate of 6-35%. There are two types of BC, early and late. Early BC is observed for 30 days post LTx or during the entire period of the patient's first hospital stay after LTx. The main causes of early BC are ischemia of the biliary tree (the bile duct of the transplanted liver is supplied only from the right hepatic artery descendingly; the supply from the gastroduodenal artery is lacking) as well as implementation of the biliary anastomosis surgical technique...

BACKGROUND: Metallic stents for malignant biliary obstruction are susceptible to occlusion by tumor ingrowth or overgrowth. Paclitaxel-eluting metallic stents (PEMSs), however, may prevent occlusion from tumor ingrowth. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the safety of PEMSs in a canine biliary model by analyzing tissue reactions by histologic examination. DESIGN: Animal study. SETTING AND INTERVENTIONS: Six PEMSs and 5 control stents (CSs) were endoscopically placed in the bile ducts of 11 mongrel dogs and followed up for 6 weeks...

Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm and bilioma are rare complications of blunt abdominal trauma in children. We report a case in an 11-year-old patient after a hepatic and splenic blunt trauma following a car accident. The initial evolution was simple with haemodynamic stability. On Day 12, a pseudoaneurysm was discovered on an abdominal magnetic resonance imaging whereas the patient presented a major pain syndrome and an icteric cholestase. Embolisation was realised a few hours later in emergency because of a haemorrhagic shock...

Symptomatic bilary obstruction with duodenal nar-rowing requires either surgical or percutaneous biliary drainage procedure. We report a 54-year-old woman suffering from carcinoma of the head of pancreas, who had combined duodenal and bilary obstruction and underwent successful endoscopic ultrasound-guided transduodenal biliary stent placement.

OBJECTIVE: Bilary stenting with endoprosthesis is a palliative procedure to relieve malignant biliary obstruction. Percutaneous transhepatic technique has been employed whenever endoscopic technique was not possible or had failed. SETTING: Angiography/intervention suite, department of radiology, Aga Khan University hospital, Karachi. METHODS: We present retrospective analysis of 17 patients with malignant jaundice who were treated with percutaneous techniques after the endoscopic route had failed...
