Hemobilia is a potentially life-threatening clinical issue in the etiology of which iatrogenesis is playing increasingly more immense role. Nowadays the most frequent etiology of hemobilia has shifted toward iatrogenesis owing to increasingly more frequent performance of liver procedures, either open or minimally invasive. Here we report a rare case of recurrent hemobilia after transarterial embolization. A 57-year-old male patient after cholecystectomy presented with Quincke's triad. CT revealed a pseudoaneurysm of the right hepatic artery...

Objectives Endovascular procedures are the treatment of choice in cases of intrahepatic fistulas. Arterio-biliary fistulas are the rarest and most difficult to treat, due to high risk of infection. Methods Eight cases of persistent hemobilia that developed as a result of arterio-biliary fistulas are presented. Five cases developed as a result of iatrogenic injury, two cases as a result of chronic infection, one case as a consequence of trauma. Results Patients were treated using endovascular embolization or combined endovascular and endoscopic biliary tract revision...

Unresectable malignant biliary strictures are generally managed by palliative stent placement for drainage of biliary tree. Recently, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has been used to improve the patency of biliary stents in these patients. Several studies have evaluated the effectiveness of biliary stent placement with RFA on stent patency and patient survival with variable results. We performed this meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of biliary stent placement with RFA compared with stent placement alone in patients with malignant biliary strictures...

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is used as a palliative treatment for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide. Recently, a novel drug delivery-embolic agent, the drug-eluting bead (DEB), was introduced for TACE. There are a few reports of tumor hemorrhage after TACE using DEB (DEB-TACE) for HCC. However, there have not been any reports of hemobilia immediately after DEB-TACE for an HCC with intrahepatic bile duct invasion. Here, the first such case is reported. A 71-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital to undergo DEB-TACE for multiple HCCs with worsening left intrahepatic bile duct dilatation...

Hemobilia is caused by the abnormal connection between a blood vessel and the bile duct, which is usually iatrogenic and caused by hepatobiliary procedures. The classic triad of hemobilia includes biliary colic, obstructive jaundice, and gastrointestinal bleeding. We present the case of an 80-year-old man who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy complicated by hemobilia. He had an unusual presentation of hemobilia in the form of transient vasovagal episodes in addition to abdominal pain and hematochezia.

A 78-year-old woman was admitted with benign biliary stenosis. A plastic stent was placed at the left branch to prevent obstructive cholangitis. Two weeks after the procedure, the patient was readmitted with cholangitis caused by hemobilia. However, computed tomography (CT), endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), peroral cholangioscopy, and abdominal angiography failed to establish the bleeding source. At the seventh bleeding, CT revealed a hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm for which coil embolization was successfully performed...

The gallbladder and bile ducts are usually assessed initially with conventional gray-scale ultrasound (US). Contrast enhanced US (CEUS) is used when a diagnosis cannot be reached with conventional US. CEUS is easy to learn and perform. US contrast agents can be safely administered in patients with renal function impairment. In this pictorial essay the physics, examination technique and indications of CEUS for examining the gallbladder and bile ducts are reviewed. Gallbladder indications include elucidating normal variants, differentiating sludge from neoplastic lesions, benign and malignant pathology, infection, wall rupture and hemobilia...

Arterial vascular complication from endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is exceedingly rare. This report describes a life threatening hemobilia, from a pseudoaneurysm of the right hepatic artery (RHA), which occurred post ERCP. The pseudoaneurysm and the active bleed were diagnosed by selective angiography of the RHA, and successfully treated with stenting.

Right hepatic artery aneurysms are rare events that might remain asymptomatic for a long period of time. However, in cases presenting large lesions, symptoms might develop especially due to the association of compression of the surrounding elements. Most often these symptoms and signs include diffuse abdominal pain, jaundice or portal vein compression signs. In rare cases life-threatening complications might develop due to the aneurysmal erosion of the biliary duct, portal vein or due to the aneurysmal rupture in the peritoneal cavity...

The present paper describes a case of hemobilia in a woman with a cystic artery pseudoaneurysm. The pseudoaneurysm could be seen with ultrasound, Doppler sonography and CT angiography. In our case, Doppler sonography was the most useful technique for diagnosis, revealing the turbulent forward and backwards flow within the gallbladder, representing the focally dilated artery. This was later confirmed by CT angiography. A recent bleeding site was found on the cholecystectomy specimen.

Cystic artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare entity most closely associated with trauma to the biliary vasculature (usually iatrogenic) or inflammation from adjacent cholecystitis. Most cases are treated intraoperatively during cholecystectomy. We describe 3 cases of cystic artery pseudoaneurysms secondary to acute cholecystitis, 2 with active hemobilia, treated with transcatheter embolization at our institution.

INTRODUCTION: Hemobilia represents only 6% of all causes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a rare case of a bleeding pseudoaneurysm of the cystic artery, due to a re-activation of a chronic cholecystitis, which arose with a mixed symptomatology: jaundices and hematemesis. DISCUSSION: The rarity of our patient is increased for some vascular anatomic variations detected by Computed Tomography that influenced the management of the disease...

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) has been increasingly reported as an alternative to percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage in failed endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. Moreover, conversion to EUS-BD can be a good alternative when transpapillary biliary drainage is technically possible but complicated by cholangitis because EUS-BD enables one-step internal drainage not traversing the tumor. Herein, we report a case of recurrent cholangitis due to hemobilia and cholecystitis due to tumor involvement to the cystic duct after transpapillary stent placement, which was successfully managed by conversion to EUS-BD and EUS-guided gallbladder drainage in one session...

Hemobilia is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal tract bleeding. Most cases are iatrogenic following medical interventions, most commonly liver biopsy and transhepatic cholangiography. We present a case of arteriobiliary fistula between the right hepatic artery and the common hepatic duct, in a case of Mirrizi syndrome, following endoscopic biliary stenting and presenting with hemobilia. The patient was treated by surgical disconnection of the fistula, ligation of the right hepatic artery, and bilioenteric anastomosis...
