REVIEW
Omid Madadi-Sanjani, Claus Petersen, Benno Ure
Comparative studies and large-scale case series that confirm the advantages of laparoscopy in children with hepatobiliary diseases are scarce, and the use of laparoscopy remains a matter of debate. This article reviews the current literature on the role of laparoscopic and robotic surgery in pediatric patients with choledochal cyst, biliary atresia, gallbladder diseases, and hepatobiliary malignancies. Studies were identified through a search of the MEDLINE database. Laparoscopy may be beneficial for resection of choledochal cyst and cholecystectomy...

AIM: Cystic biliary atresia (CBA) can be easily misdiagnosed as choledochal cyst (CC). Some patients have already progressed to severe liver fibrosis and missed the optimal surgical time, when the differential diagnosis is made. We aim to determine the differentiation between CBA and CC, and to validate the value of aspartate aminotransferase-to-platelet ratio index (APRI) in the assessment of liver fibrosis and prediction of post-operative outcome for infants with biliary cystic malformations (BCMs)...

The authors report technical details of robotic bilioenteric reconstruction done for variable indications: choledochal cyst and biliary stricture. Robotic bilioenteric anastomosis as alternative to open reconstruction, offers advantages of minimal access surgery without compromising the precision of open surgery for hilar dissection and reconstruction. Both patients recovered uneventfully and remain symptom-free 18 and 15 months after surgery.

Situs inversus totalis is the mirror image of situs solitus, the normal position of abdominal and thoracic viscera. Many associated intraabdominal anomalies have been described with this condition. However, association of choledochal cyst with situs inversus has never been reported. Diagnosis and surgical procedures for abdominal pathology in patients with situs inversus totalis are technically more complicated and pose unique challenges because of left-right transposition of the visceral organs. The choledochal cyst is usually diagnosed in the neonatal period or during childhood...

Jaundice in children is more often due to hepatic disease than obstruction. Differential considerations for obstructive jaundice in children include choledocholithiasis, choledochal cysts and rare neoplasms. Rhabdomyosarcoma, the most common soft tissue sarcoma in pediatric patients, typically involves the head and neck, genitourinary system and extremities. Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the biliary tree is a rare entity. We present a 3-year-old boy with abrupt onset obstructive jaundice. Although initial imaging suggested a dilated biliary system with fusiform common bile duct, sludge, and possible cholelithiasis, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatogram (ERCP) diagnosed a common bile duct embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma and further imaging showed involvement of the cystic duct...

RATIONALE: Choledochal cysts are a congenital disorder of the common bile duct that can cause progressive biliary obstruction and biliary cirrhosis. They were classified by Todani into five types. Of these, type VI choledochal cysts are rarely reported in the literature. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 22-month-old girl presented with intermittent epigastralgia for approximately 10 days and fever for three days. Fasting and total parenteral nutrition were administered after admission...

Primary pancreatic hydatid lesions are very rare with an incidence of less than 1% in the adult population. We report an observation of a 5-year-old girl who consulted for isolated abdominal pain occurring for 2 weeks without vomiting, transit disorders or jaundice and evolving in a context of conservation of the general condition and apyrexia. Clinical examination and preoperative imaging have suggested the diagnosis of a choledochal cyst or duodenal duplication rather than a hydatid cyst of the pancreas due to the presence of a cystic hepatic image projecting into the liver hilum...

The 17q12 chromosomal region carries the HNF1B gene, mutations of which cause various conditions. When searching for HNF1B/17q12 rearrangements among children with biliary atresia and/or choledochal cysts, we identified a male proband carrying a 17q12 duplication spanning 1698 kb that included 24 genes from TBC1D3C to HNF1B. The boy presented with cholestatic jaundice at the age of 2 weeks due to a choledochal cyst sized 15 ×12 mm (type Ia according to the Todani classification). He underwent a shunt surgery consisting of a hepaticojejunostomy using Roux-en-Y loop at the age of 2 months, which led to a permanent relief of cholestasis...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: We previously found that many patients who developed hepatolithiasis after choledochal cyst excisions had intrahepatic bile duct stenosis (IHBDS). In 1992, we started resection of the membrane or septum which was found at the site of IHBDS during choledochal cyst excisions. Since intrahepatic stones usually take years to form, the efficacy of this procedure has not been proved. METHODS: The records of patients who had IHBDS-causing membrane or septum and underwent choledochal cyst excision with Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy between January 1979 and December 2006 were retrospectively analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Bile leaks and anastomotic strictures are important complications of hepaticojejunostomy (HJ). Evidence suggests that the use of hepatic round ligament (HRL) to buttress HJ may be beneficial. This study evaluates the feasibility of this approach. METHODS: HJs performed over 2 years (Jun 2014- May 2016), with HRL reinforcement, were analyzed. Operative outcomes measured included technical difficulty, blood loss, time necessary for flap harvest, and reinforcement of HJ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Biliary atresia (BA) is a pediatric liver disease characterized by fibro-obliteration and obstruction of the extrahepatic biliary system, that invariably leads to cirrhosis and even death, if left untreated for extended time. However, its pathology and etiology still remained unknown. In this study, we tested the expression of adducin 3 (ADD3), the gene identified as a susceptibility gene in BA by GWAS, and uncovered its upstream regulatory microRNA in the pathogenesis of BA...

Infantile Choledochal Cysts (IFCC) usually present with jaundice, acholic stool and abdominal lump or abdominal distension. If the surgical intervention is delayed, they rapidly progress to liver fibrosis which is considered to be irreversible if progressed to cirrhosis. We present the data of four cases (aged one month to seven months) of IFCC presented with cholangitis managed in one surgical unit in last two years. In one case, cholangitis was treated with prolonged antibiotic course before definitive repair whereas in rest, external drainage of cyst was done in addition to intravenous antibiotic to treat cholangitis...

INTRODUCTION: Heterotopic pancreas (HP) has rarely been identified in the wall of choledochal cyst (CC). METHODS: Retrospectively we screened 200 excised specimens of CC received at our Institute over a period of last eight years and looked for presence of HP rests in them. All the specimens were processed in their entirety. RESULT: HP was identified in the wall of 13 (6.5%) CCs, out of which 11 were Heinrich Type 2, and two were Heinrich Type 1...

BACKGROUND: The option of either single- or two-staged cyst excision has been proposed for perforated choledochal cysts (CCs), but which of the two methods is more effective remains controversial. We examined the complications and short-term outcomes of single-stage excision of perforated and non-perforated CCs. METHODS: The medical records of patients treated for CCs from 2003 to 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Outcomes were compared between patients with perforated CCs (Group A) and non-perforated CCs (Group B)...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was the early diagnosis of ABCB11 spectrum liver disorders, especially those focused on benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis and progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis. METHODS: Fifty patients presenting neonatal cholestasis were evaluated to identify underlying etiologies. Genetic analysis was performed on patients suspected to have syndromic diseases or ABCB11 spectrum liver disorders. Two families with proven ABCB11 spectrum liver disorders were subjected to genetic analyses to confirm the diagnosis and were provided genetic counseling...

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a relatively rare primary malignancy, with established risk factors that include primary sclerosing cholangitis, choledochal cysts and hepatolithiasis. In the present study, two cases of CCA, which occurred following abdominal external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, are reported. Case 1 and 2 were diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma 30 and 4 years following treatment with combined chemotherapy and abdominal radiotherapy treatment, respectively. The patients received chemotherapy as treatment of cholangiocarcinoma; however, whilst their symptoms improved, they succumbed within 12 and 2 months respectively following the diagnosis with cholangiocarcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Whether a wide hilar hepaticojejunostomy after bile duct cyst (BDC) excision can prevent the development of postoperative complications remains an unanswered question. We compared our outcomes after a minimum of 2-y follow-up in patients with Todani type Ia choledochal cyst treated with hilar ductoplasty followed by a side-to-side Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy (ductoplasty group) or radical cyst resection with an end-to-side Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy (conventional group)...
