Roux-en-y choledochal cyst

Aditi Arora, Pradyumn Singh, Nidhi Anand, Nuzhat Husain
Choledochal cyst is a rare congenital malformation, particularly when associated with stones in cyst (cystolithiasis), gallstones and heterotopic pancreatic tissue within the cyst wall. The current case represents a 5-year-old boy with abdominal pain, pale colored stools, and jaundice. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography showed a cystic lesion, arising from common bile duct with cystolithiasis and cholelithiasis. He underwent excision of choledochal cyst and gallbladder with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy...

AIM: In patients with a choledochal cyst, the malformation and subsequent biliodigestive reconstruction lead to a non-physiological state in the digestive tract and biliary excretion that could affect the child's growth. The effect of this malformation and its surgical treatment are reviewed here in a large patient cohort. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective review of patients undergoing surgery for choledochal cyst in the last 20 years. Nutrition and liver function parameters, weight and height data were collected from medical records...

Choledochal cysts are rare congenital malformations of the bile duct characterized by dilatations of the intrahepatic and/or extrahepatic portion of the biliary tree, they are associated to an anomalous arrangement of the pancreaticobiliary duct. Pancreas divisum results from a fusion failure of the pancreatic buds. The coexistence of pancreas divisum and choledochal cyst in adults has been reported in less than 10 well documented cases. This article presents a case of a 42-year-old Peruvian man with intermittent episodes of abdominal pain, initially diagnosed with choledocholithiasis, who underwent open cholecystectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Choledochal cysts are rare congenital dilations of the biliary tree that can present with non-specific symptoms such as abdominal pain, jaundice, cholelithiasis and pancreatitis. Although most commonly identified in children, they can be found in the adult population. However, because of the non-specific symptoms, this diagnosis may be difficult to make in the adult. A physician therefore must keep this diagnosis within their differential, as it may arise in an unexpected patient population who may present with a convoluted work up...

BACKGROUND: Choledochal cysts are associated with ductal strictures, stone formation, cholangitis, rupture, secondary biliary cirrhosis and increased incidence of cholangiocarcinoma. The surgical approach to choledochal cysts has evolved from the cyst-enterostomy to a complete excision with more recent use of minimally invasive approaches. We report a complete minimally invasive approach to a Type 1 choledochal cyst and summarize the literature containing large case series of similar approaches...

BACKGROUND: Choledochal cyst is a congenital dilatation of the biliary tree. It may affect only the extrahepatic bile duct (type I, II and III), intrahepatic (type V) or both (type IVa). Vater first described choledochal cyst in 1723. Open excision was the standard procedure made a great impact in the treatment but since 1995 Farello et al. first reported laparoscopic choledochal cyst excision and this has been used worldwide. CASE REPORT: Female, 17 years old, past medical history two years ago a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gallbladders...

Congenital choledochal cysts are rare in adults. Due to the risk of developing cholangiocarcinoma, the current standard of care is complete excision of the cyst and reconstruction with hepaticojejunostomy. So far, more than 200 laparoscopic resections have been reported in adults, the majority being from Far Eastern countries over the last five years. Herein, the technique of laparoscopic type I choledochal cyst excision and hepaticojejunostomy is presented in a 37-year-old male with an accompanying video. The advantages of laparoscopic surgery are applicable for choledochal cyst excision as well...

Choledochal cyst (CDC) is a congenital dilatation of the extra and/or intrahepatic bile ducts and it is a rare condition in western countries. Classical treatment consists of cyst excision and hepaticojejunostomy. The first case of a laparoscopic CDC excision was described in 1995 and since that time an increasing number of institutions have adopted this technique, with good success. We describe our early experience of 3 cases of CDC treated with laparoscopic approach. We used a 10 mm umbilical port for the camera, and four 3-5 mm operative ports...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic cyst excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is gaining popularity as a treatment for choledochal cyst (CDC) in children. However, the learning curve for this challenging laparoscopic procedure has not been addressed. The aim of this study is to determine the characteristics of the learning curve of this procedure. This may guide the training in institutions currently not using this technique. METHODS: A prospectively collected database comprising all medical records of the first 104 consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic CDC excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy performed by one surgeon was studied...

BACKGROUND: Complete removal of the dilated biliary tree is regarded as inevitable in choledochal cysts due to its malignant potential. However, technical difficulty and the high risk of postoperative complications as well as the various presentations of the disease make the surgical options for type IV-A cysts challenging and controversial. We report the first case of a type IV-A choledochal cyst treated using a robot-assisted approach. PATIENT AND METHODS: A 41-year-old healthy female was admitted with intrahepatic and extrahepatic cysts incidentally found on routine checkup...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Choledochal cysts (CCs) are rare abnormalities of the biliary tract. Presenting our clinical experience with CCs herein, we aimed to identify if intrahepatic ductal dilatation indicates true intrahepatic biliary duct disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases of CCs in children diagnosed at a single center (Başkent University Fac-ulty of Medicine, Department of Pediatric Surgery) institution from 2005 to 2015. RESULTS: Of 18 patients with CCs, 7 were males (39%)...

Choledochal cyst is prevalent in female than male. Diagnosis and management of choledochal cyst is important in clinical practice, or else, patients may develop cholangiocarcinoma. Currently, complete resection is the standard method for the treatment of choledochal cyst. However, traditional open surgery is usually needed in these procedures, which may induce postoperative injuries. In this case, we present our experiences for the management of choledochal cyst through radical removal combined with Roux-en-Y anastomosis under laparoscope...

AIMS: The aim was to compare biliary amylase, common channel, and gall bladder/liver histopathology between spherical and fusiform choledochal cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Children undergoing cyst excision with Roux-en-Y hepatico-jejunostomy over a 17 months period were prospectively studied. The common channel was assessed by three-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP). RESULTS: Among 22 patients (spherical = 10, fusiform = 12), there was a higher incidence of spherical cysts in infants (5/7-71...

Ovarian metastases represent about 3-5% of all ovarian malignancies. Most of these tumors originate in the digestive tract and cholangiocarcinoma rarely involves the ovary. A 60-year-old woman was admitted for the investigation of abdominal distension that had lasted 1 week. One and a half years prior, the patient had undergone choledochal cyst excision, Roux-en Y hepaticojejunostomy and cholecystectomy. Computed tomography scans of the abdomen revealed a papillary mass in the remnant distal common bile duct and enlargement of both ovaries with a huge amount of ascites...

BACKGROUND: Although Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy is considered the gold standard of biliary reconstruction after excision of a choledochal cyst, there is increasing popularity of hepaticoduodenostomy, as it is easier to perform laparoscopically and provides physiologic bile drainage into the duodenum. Our animal research study had the goal to develop and test a new biliary reconstructive procedure (the duodenotubular flap [DTF]), with the advantages of providing physiological bile flow into the duodenum, technical simplicity of duodenal conduit construction, and ability of endoscopic assessment in case of complications...
