The progresses made in minimally invasive surgery, make it not only possible to perform isolated cholecystectomy, but also to provide a totally laparoscopic treatment of common bile duct lithiasis. In this approach, the use of choledochoscopy is indispensable for diagnostic and therapeutic success. This study describes the use of a disposable endoscope for choledochoscopy in the laparoscopic treatment of choledocholithiasis. We have analyzed the use of the Ambu® aScope 3™ disposable endoscope, normally used for bronchoscopy, in nine consecutive patients needing choledochoscopy in our Hospital...

AIMS: Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is rare compared to the worldwide frequent acute or chronic liver diseases. Therefore, patients included in series of suspected DILI are at high risk of not having DILI, whereby alternative causes may confound the DILI diagnosis. The aim of this review is to evaluate published case series of DILI for alternative causes. METHODS: Relevant studies were identified using a computerized search of the Medline database for publications from 1993 through 30 October 2017...

Background and study aims  Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is an invasive diagnostic and interventional procedure used in conditions related to the pancreas and biliary tract. It has a complication rate ranging from 4 % to 10 %. Severe complications are few with the most common of them being post-ERCP pancreatitis, post-sphincterotomy bleeding, and perforation. A rare, but potentially life-threatening complication of ERCP is splenic injury. We report the case of a 60-year-old female with choledocholithiasis who sustained splenic decapsulation following ERCP...

AIM: Biliary lithiasis is common in most western countries. Symptomatic patients will also have choledocholithiasis in 10% of the cases. For patients with intermediate probability of CBD stones, the recommended imaging studies are endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) or MRCP. This study aims to identify early factors that can be used as predictors for the presence of CBD stones, and by that to find which patient should undergo ERCP without an early EUS. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study including all patients who underwent EUS for suspected choledocholithiasis at the Soroka University Medical Center (SUMC) in the years 2009-2014...

Background: Indications for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in children differ from adults. Paucity of data and concerns about potential lower effectiveness and more side effects limit its use even in high volume centers. We retrospectively analyzed indications, success rates, limitations, and side effects of ERCPs in children <18 years. Methods: From January 2012 to March 2015, 54 ERCPs were performed in 31 children (median age 11 (0-17) years; median weight 22 (3...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare condition, in which there is transposition of the thoraco-abdominal organs. This situation leads to diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties in patients with acute surgical abdomen. The objective of this report is to present the case of a patient who presented with colonic pain in the epigastrium and left hypochondrium, in which the diagnosis of SIT, cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis was reached after the respective imaging studies. Once the diagnosis was made, treatment was performed through retrograde endoscopic cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and subsequent surgical exploration of bile ducts...

BACKGROUND: Aging has been associated with increasing common bile duct (CBD) diameter and reported as independently predictive of the likelihood of choledocolithiasis. These associations are controversial with uncertain diagnostic utility in patients presenting with symptomatic disease. The current study examined the relationship between age, CBD size, and the diagnostic probability of choledocolithiasis. METHODS: Symptomatic patients undergoing evaluation for suspected choledocolithiasis from January 2008 to February 2011 were reviewed...

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a diagnostic method and treatment approach for biliary diseases. However, biliary cannulation can be difficult in some cases. We performed ERCP in a 97-year-old woman with abdominal pain resulting from acute cholangitis caused by choledocholithiasis and observed difficult biliary cannulation. Eventually, the patient was successfully treated with the rendezvous technique. We could not cannulate the biliary duct during ERCP twice. Therefore, we placed a percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) tube without intrahepatic dilation...

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) associated with sphincterotomy is a useful procedure that is widely used in cases of choledocholithiasis and bile duct obstruction. In spite of being a safe test, there is a risk of complications like pancreatitis, haemorrhaging or perforation. Post-ERCP duodenal perforation is a rare event but has serious consequences if it is not treated early. The lesion mechanism, the place and extension of the perforation, as well as the clinical picture and radiographic findings will guide patient management, which must be individualised and constantly reevaluated...
