Biliary stricture complicating living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is a relatively common complication, occurring in most transplant centres across the world. Cases of biliary strictures are more common in LDLT than in deceased donor liver transplantation. Endoscopic management is the mainstay for biliary strictures complicating LDLT and includes endoscopic retrograde cholangiography, sphincterotomy and stent placement (with or without balloon dilatation). The efficacy and safety profiles as well as outcomes of endoscopic management of biliary strictures complicating LDLT is an area that needs to be viewed in isolation, owing to its unique set of problems and attending complications; as such, it merits a tailored approach, which is yet to be well established...

Pancreatic complex deep injury extending to the main pancreatic duct (MPD), caused by strong external forces such as traffic accidents, is lethal without emergency surgery. However, the best surgical procedure for this serious injury has not been established. The Bracey procedure is a relatively simple reconstructive technique involving pancreaticogastrostomy, but it is often followed by postoperative complications, such as dilatation of the MPD caused by anastomotic stenosis, as well as subsequent serious sequela such as repetitive pancreatitis and new-onset pancreatic diabetes...

Biliary complications are a significant cause of morbidity after living donor liver transplant (LDLT). Bile leak may occur from bile duct (anastomotic site in recipient and repaired bile duct stump in donor), cystic duct stump, cut surface pedicles or from divided caudate ducts. The first three sites are amenable to post-operative endoscopic stenting as they are in continuation with biliary ductal system. However, leaks from divided isolated caudate ducts can be stubborn. To minimize caudate duct bile leaks, it is important to understand the anatomy of hilum with attention to the caudate lobe biliary drainage...

RATIONALE: As a main complication of chronic pancreatitis (CP), pancreatic duct stones (PDSs) are often associated with ductal obstruction resulting in increasing intraductal and parenchymal pressure and long-lasting pain. There are many methods for removing PDSs. However, for large stones, it is technically difficult to remove them entirely by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). PATIENT CONCERNS: A 57-year-old man presented with a chief complaint of severe epigastric pain radiating to his back 3 or 4 times annually for 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) is used to keep the ductus arteriosus patent and can be life-saving in neonates with ductal-dependent cardiac lesions. PGE1 is used to promote mixing of pulmonary and systemic blood flow or improve pulmonary or systemic circulations, prior to balloon atrial septostomy or surgery. PGE1 therapy may cause several short-term and long-term adverse effects. The efficacy and safety of PGE1 in neonates with ductal-dependent cardiac lesions has not been systematically reviewed...

The use of hybrid techniques to avoid neonatal cardiopulmonary bypass in high-risk individuals is well reported in the setting of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. We describe the use of that technique as a bridging procedure in high-risk neonates with an interrupted aortic arch. We report three cases where hybrid branch pulmonary artery banding and ductal stent implantation has been successfully used to defer complete repair, allowing recovery, maturity, and weight gain. This strategy may be considered for patients deemed at high risk for primary neonatal repair...

Pancreatic cancer is the second most common malignancy of the gastrointestinal tract in the US, and adenocarcinoma has been identified as the most common type of pancreatic cancer. Different types of pancreatic cancers have been classified: adenocarcinoma, ductal adenosquamous carcinoma, solid pseudopapillary tumors, endocrine neoplasms, acinar cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, cystic tumors, primary lymphoma of the pancreas, and metastatic lesions of the pancreas. Adenosquamous carcinoma is extremely rare, behave in a very aggressive way and is responsible for the 1 to 4% of the pancreatic exocrine neoplastic lesions...

Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) is the second most common congenital heart disease associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). The reported survival rate of neonates with CDH and HLHS is only 1%-5%. We review our experience with CDH and HLHS and compare our outcomes with published literature. Retrospective review of all neonates with CDH and HLHS at our institution over a 10-year period was performed. The morphology of cardiac and diaphragm defects, clinical course, treatment strategies, and outcomes were reviewed, and an algorithmic approach was proposed...

Rizwan Rehman, Mood Che Marhisham, Mazeni Alwi
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) stenting has gained acceptance for palliation in cyanotic congenital heart disease. The PDA in tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia (ToF-PA) arises, in the left aortic arch, from underneath the arch and connects to the proximal left pulmonary artery, often resulting in stenosis. The PDA is usually elongated and tortuous, making stent implantation challenging. Shorter duration of palliation, aggravation of branch pulmonary artery stenosis resulting in poor growth and difficulty at surgery makes ductal stenting controversial...

Pancreatic fluid collections are a frequent complication of acute pancreatitis. The revised Atlanta criterion classifies chronic fluid collections into pseudocysts and walled-off pancreatic necrosis (WON). Symptomatic PFCs require drainage options that include surgical, percutaneous, or endoscopic approaches. With the advent of newer and more advanced endoscopic tools and expertise, minimally invasive endoscopic drainage has now become the preferred approach. An endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided approach for pancreatic fluid collection drainage is now the preferred endoscopic approach...
