Objective There are no reports on whether or not trainees can safely carry out endoscopic procedures for the removal of common bile duct (CBD) stones. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of endoscopic treatments for CBD stones by trainees. Methods Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was performed in 1,016 consecutive patients at our institution during the 6-year study period. The endoscopically treated patients with CBD stones were included in this study. Physicians who had experienced ≥300 ERCP procedures were defined as experts, while those who had experienced <300 procedures were defined as trainees...

BACKGROUND: Bile duct stones (BDS) are usually removed via endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) or, if ERCP remains unsuccessful, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiodrainage (PTCD). However, PTCD provides limited access to large BDSs. We analyzed a modified approach of PTCD for percutaneous therapy of BDS. METHODS: We used a modified approach of PTCD with a 13-french (Fr) hemostasis introducer for transhepatic access to BDS. Short-wired balloon or basket catheter were applied for safe removal of BDS...

BACKGROUND: In adults ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) are standard methods of evaluating and treating many hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) conditions. HPB disease is being diagnosed with increasing frequency in children but information about role of ERCP and EUS and their outcomes in this population remain limited. Therefore the aims of this study were to describe the paediatric ERCP and EUS experience from a large tertiary referral HPB centre, and to systematically compare outcomes with those of other published series...

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...

INTRODUCTION: Difficult and large common bile duct stones can be crushed and removed using a mechanical lithotripter. Very often the lack of working space within the common bile duct causing the failure of mechanical lithotripsy would inevitably mean repeat or further invasive procedures. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A patient with large and multiple common bile duct stones underwent ERCP, and initial deployment of a mechanical lithotripter failed due to the lack of working space within the common bile duct...

Background/Aims: Electrohydraulic lithotripsy (EHL) under endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) guidance can be an option to treat difficult stones. Recently, a digital, single-operator cholangioscope (SPY-DS) has become available. Peroral transluminal cholangioscopy (PTLC) using SPY-DS has also been reported. In this retrospective study, the technical feasibility and clinical effectiveness of EHL for difficult bile duct stones under ERCP guidance and under PTLC guidance was examined...

Acute pancreatitis is a common diagnosis worldwide, with gallstone disease being the most prevalent cause (50%). The American College of Gastroenterology recommends urgent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) (within 24 h) for patients with biliary pancreatitis accompanied by cholangitis. Most international guidelines recommend that ERCP be performed within 72 h in patients with biliary pancreatitis and a bile duct obstruction without cholangitis, but the optimal timing for endoscopy is controversial...

Endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) is a standard procedure for the treatment of common bile duct stones (CBDS). Endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation (EPLBD) is emerging as an effective method to treat difficult CBDS, providing several advantages over EST without increasing the early adverse events (AE). However, the late AE of EPLBD have not been well studied yet. AIMS: To compare the late AEs after EPLBD versus EST for the treatment of CBDS using a propensity score-based cohort analysis...

Endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) is a standard procedure for bile duct stone removal. However, the safety of ES in patients with hemophilia remains unknown. We treated a 46-year-old man who had choledocholithiasis and severe hemophilia A with high-responding inhibitors during immune tolerance induction therapy. Since coagulation factor VIII inhibitors neutralize and inactivate endogenous and exogenous factor VIII, bleeding risk is higher in hemophilia A patients with inhibitors than in those without inhibitors...

RATIONALE: Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH) manifests from blood accumulating in the epidural space, compressing the spinal cord, and leading to acute neurological deficits. The disease's cloudy etiology and rarity contribute to dangerously suboptimal therapeutic principles. These neural deficits can be permanent, even fatal, if the SSEH is not treated in a timely and appropriate manner. Standard therapy is decompressive laminectomy, though nonsurgical management is a viable course of action for patients who meet a criterion that is continuously being refined...

A 68-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for the treatment of bile duct stone, pancreatic tumor, and pancreatic cysts. First, bile duct stone was removed using endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. By abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography, a 12-mm diameter tumor was found in the pancreatic body. The tumor was isodense compared with the surrounding pancreatic parenchyma in the non-contrast phase and poorly enhanced in the arterial phase; it exhibited gradual enhancement from the portal vein phase to the late phase...

OBJECTIVE: Hepatic cysts with biliary communications (HC) and cystic dilatations of main intrahepatic ducts (CIHD) can cause biliary obstruction, cholestasis, stone formation, cholangitis, liver damage and carcinoma. Conventionally, Roux-Y cysto-jejunostomy is employed to manage these conditions. However, it is technically demanding and may be complicated with major biliary disruption and bacteria migration from intestine to intrahepatic duct. We have carried out laparoscopic cysto-cholecystostomies for HC with biliary communication and CIHD and evaluated outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), as a pancreatic manifestation of IgG4-related disease, shows a favorable prognosis in the short term. However, disease relapse is common in long-term follow-up, despite a successful initial treatment response. This study aimed to identify the predictors of relapse and long-term outcomes in patients with type 1 AIP. METHODS: Patients with more than 2 years of follow-up who met the International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria for type 1 AIP were included...

We present a novel minimally invasive technique, laparoscopy-assisted micropercutaneous choledocholithotripsy, for choledocholithiasis that cannot be treated with other endoscopic techniques. This technique includes standard laparoscopic exploration of the common bile duct, combined with an all-seeing needle and holmium laser lithotripsy. As is known, an all-seeing needle is used in micropercutaneous nephrolithotomy for middle-sized renal stones. In this technique, an all-seeing needle was inserted into the dilatated common bile duct under laparoscopic vision and then a lithotripsy procedure was performed with a holmium laser behind the biliary stent...

AIM: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of emergency endoscopic needle-knife precut papillotomy in acute severe cholangitis resulting from impacted common bile duct stones at duodenal papilla. METHODS: Between January 2010 and January 2015, 118 cases of acute severe cholangitis with impacted common bile duct stones at the native papilla underwent emergency endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and early needle-knife precut papillotomy in a tertiary referral center...

The congenital absence of the gallbladder (CAG) is a rare condition with an incidence of 13-65 cases/ 100,000 in the general population. This occurs when the gallbladder and the cystic duct fail to bud from the common bile duct during the fifth week of gestation. Most commonly, the patients with congenital absence of the gallbladder are asymptomatic. When symptomatic, they present as biliary colic, dyspepsia, jaundice or very rarely as acute cholecystitis. We present a case of a 27-year-old female who presented with acute right upper quadrant abdominal pain...
