INTRODUCTION: Biliary complications (BC) are one of the most frequent surgical complications after liver transplantation. They include biliary stenosis, leaks, choledocolitiasis and sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. These complications can cause graft dysfunction, retrasplantation, or even death. The purpose of this study was to identify factors related to BC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of all adult patients who underwent their first liver transplantation in our institution from 2005 to 2013 were reviewed, and any BC that required management was recorded...

Endoscopic sphincterotomy is one of the more effective therapeutic procedures for the management of some biliary tree abnormalities. In choledocolitiasis, a 90% succesfull rate has been obtained. Complications include bleeding, perforation, cholangitis, and pancreatitis. Mortality rates between 1.0 to 1.3% are informed. Contraindications are the same as for panendoscopy as well as the presence of stones greater than 2.5 cms. In giant stones, some other endoscopic approaches can be used, including mechanical lithotripsy, chemical treatment, electrohydraulic shockwaves, laser and biliary stent application...

The occurrence of cholestasis during pregnancy may be due to several disorders. These include pregnancyspecific diseases, like intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy(ICP), as well as to other causes such as oligosymptomatic choledocolitiasis, viral hepatitis and other underlying liver disorders like primary biliary cirrhosis. In recent years, the discovery of mutations in hepatobiliary transporters genes responsible of some rare forms of genetic cholestasis have led to the study of this mutations in pregnant women with cholestasis...

AIM: To assess real efficacy of endoscopic sphincterotomy in the setting of postcholecistectomy choledocolitiasis (i.e., without excluding for analysis any patient referred for the procedures) traditionally the evaluation has been done after excluding those cases in which the procedure failed or was not attempted. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of a series of cholecystectomized patients with choledocolithiasis. Patients were included for analysis on an "intention to treat" basis, without excluding cases in which the procedure either was not attempted or failed...
