Gallstone ileus is an exceptional complication among billiary diseases. It is defined as an intestinal obstruction caused by a gallstone as it passes through a bilio-digestive fistula. This is disease with high morbi-mortality, and whose main contributing factors are the advanced age of the patients, comorbidities and the delayed diagnosis. Most of the times, it is a postoperative diagnosis and a high clinical suspicion is essential for an early diagnosis. In patients with gallstone ileus the abdominal X-ray is frequently nonspecific and to observe a complete Rigler triad is exceptional...

INTRODUCTION: Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is an autoimmune disease of the liver characterized by destruction and inflammation of the intrahepatic bile ducts. The disease affects mainly women. The disease is often discovered through abnormal alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, and is confirmed when anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMA) are present. The etiology of PBC is poorly understood. Cigarette smoking, immune dysregulation, nail polish, urinary tract infections, and low socioeconomic status have been implicated but none have been confirmed...

INTRODUCTION: Biliary ileus represents only 14% of mechanical obstructions of the gastrointestinal tract. However, the rate of non-strangulated small bowel obstructions reaches as much as 25% in patients over 65 years of age. Usually, a pressure necrosis is created by a large gallstone that passes through the developed biliodigestive fistula, subsequently obturating the gastrointestinal tract. CASE REPORTS: 35 patients underwent a surgical procedure at the Department of Surgery, Teaching Hospital Pilsen for biliary ileus from January 1, 2000 to January 31, 2015...

BACKGROUND: Liver transplantation has become common in India over the last decade and biliary strictures after the procedure cause a significant morbidity. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a safe and effective treatment modality for post-transplant biliary strictures so we decided to evaluate prospectively the outcomes of endoscopic treatment in post-living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) biliary strictures. METHODS: We studied ten consecutive patients who had developed biliary strictures (out of 312 who had undergone liver transplantation between June 2009 and June 2013) and had been referred to the Department of Gastroenterology for management...

Cholecystocolic fistula is a rare billiary-enteric fistula with variable clinical presentation. Despite modern diagnostic tool a high degree of suspicion is required to diagnose it preoperatively. These fistulae are treated by open as well as laparoscopic surgery, with no difference in intraoperative and postoperative complications. We are describing a 50-year-old female patient with the diagnosis of chronic cholecystitis with cholelithiasis, which was investigated with routine lab investigations, and abdominal ultrasonography but none of these gave us any clue to the presence of fistula, were discovered incidentally during an open surgery and were appropriately treated...

BACKGROUND: Since the introduction of Da Vinci robotic surgery, more and more complicated surgeries can now be performed robotically, yet there have been very few on robotic hepatectomy, especially when billiary reconstruction is involved. The video shows our initial experience with an anatomic hepatectomy using Da Vinci surgical robot. In this case, we also conducted billiary reconstruction due to the anatomic abnormality of bile duct, while applying the choledochoscopy. The preoperative diagnosis is primary liver carcinoma, tumor thrombi in bile duct, and hepatitis B...
