BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) is used to treat choledocholithiasis. Flexible choledochoscopy is usually performed; however, this instrument is fragile and liable to breakage. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were collected and reviewed retrospectively from a prospectively maintained database. All cases of attempted LCBDE with the rigid ureteroscope at the institution since January 2014 were included. Demographic characteristics, preoperative attempted endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), size of the bile duct, findings at laparoscopy, use of drain or T-tube, conversions, and morbidity or mortality were documented...

The safety and efficacy of the combination of electronic choledochoscopy and holmium laser lithotripsy for complicated bile duct stones were assessed. In total, 20 patients participated in this study, which was conducted between 2012 and 2017. None of the patients were candidates for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with stone extraction. Outcome measures included complete stone clearance and complications postprocedure. Mean stone size was 17±5.2 mm (8 to 30 mm) and mean number of stones was 1...

Biliary interventions are commonplace in interventional radiology. Occasionally, an anastomotic occlusion is encountered that cannot be traversed with fluoroscopy alone. Endoscopy is a tool that should be added to the interventional radiology armamentarium. Unfortunately, most departments do not have endoscopes regularly available for use by nonendoscopists. The disposable single-use flexible LithoVue scope has the potential to provide many applications for interventional radiologists. It is relatively low cost and is easy to use with a simple setup for novice endoscopists...

We report a rare case of intractable bile leakage after liver resection due to stenosis of the anastomosis of a choledochojejunostomy after pancreaticoduodenectomy. A 65-year-old woman was diagnosed with pancreatic and right breast cancer, and underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy and right mastectomy with simultaneous axillary lymph node dissection. Adjuvant chemotherapy and follow-up were performed in our department. After 18 months, computed tomography revealed a liver metastasis of 2.5 cm in segment 8. Because the primary nest of liver metastasis was unknown and performing a biopsy was difficult due to the location, partial resection of the liver was performed...

Cholelithiasis is a kind of common and multiple diseases. In recent years, traditional laparotomy has been challenged by a minimally invasive surgery. Through literature review, the therapeutic method, effect, and complications of minimally invasive treatment of intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct stones by combining our practical experience were summarized as follows. (1) For intrahepatic bile duct stones, the operation may be selected by laparoscopic liver resection, laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE), or percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopy...

A double gallbladder is a rare congenital malformation. The present study describes a case of double gallbladder with secondary common bile duct stones. By way of laparoscopic choledochoscopy, the exploration and removal of a common bile duct stone was performed through the cystic duct. The process involved a primary suture of the cystic duct and was performed without using a T-tube, and completed a surgical removal of the gallbladder. The present case was successfully treated by laparoscopic surgery. From a review of previous studies published in the English language, this study, to the best of our knowledge, is the first report of such a case...

Peroral cholangioscopy has become an important tool in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of biliary diseases, ranging from indeterminate biliary strictures to bile duct stones. Although the first cholangioscopy was performed in the 1970s, recent technological advances have provided us with cholangioscopes that yield high-resolution images, possess single-operator capability, and have ultrathin design to allow easier maneuverability and detailed imaging of the biliary tract. We review here the currently available devices for peroral cholangioscopy, their clinical applications, limitations, and complications...

Surgical fraternity has not yet arrived at any consensus for adequate treatment of choledocholithiasis. Sequential treatment in the form of pre-operative endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is considered as optimal treatment till date. With refinements in technique and expertise in field of minimal access surgery, many centres in the world have started offering one stage management of choledocholithiasis by LC with laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE)...
