Recurrent cholangitis and sepsis are common complications after surgical treatment for hepatolithiasis as total clearance is not always possible. This retrospective study is designed to see the effect of our treatment for hepatolithiasis on stone clearance and post operative complications. We have treated 60 patients with hepatolithiasis surgically from September 2010 to September 2016 in the Department of Surgery, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Dhaka, Bangladesh. Various operative procedures were applied on the basis of location of stone and status of biliary tree...

Hepatolithiasis is commonly encountered in Southeastern and Eastern Asian countries, but the pathogenesis mechanism of stone formation is still not well understood. Now, the role of endogenous β-glucuronidase in pigment stones formation is being gradually recognized. In this study, the mechanism of increased expression and secretion of endogenous β-glucuronidase during hepatolithiasis formation was investigated. We assessed the endogenous β-glucuronidase, c-myc, p-p65, and p-PKC expression in liver specimens with hepatolithiasis by immunohistochemical staining, and found that compared with that in normal liver samples, the expression of endogenous β-glucuronidase, c-myc, p-p65, and p-PKC in liver specimens with hepatolithiasis significantly increased, and their expressions were positively correlated with each other...

OBJECTIVES: Although postoperative cholangioscopy (POC) is considered to be an effective treatment for residual hepatolithiasis after surgery, its security and validity still needs to be improved. This study compared wire-guided POC (WG-POC) versus traditional POC (T-POC) in the management of patients with residual hepatolithiasis. METHODS: This retrospective study included a total of 203 patients who suffered from hepatolithiasis and underwent hepatectomy as initial intervention from January 1, 2016, to January 1, 2017...

Hepatolithiasis is the presence of calculi within the intrahepatic bile duct specifically located proximal to the confluence of the left and right hepatic ducts. The ultimate goal of hepatolithiasis treatment is the complete removal of the stone, the correction of the associated strictures and the prevention of recurrent cholangitis. Although hepatectomy could effectively achieve the above goals, it can be restricted by the risk of insufficient residual liver volume, and has a 15.6% rate of residual hepatolithiasis...

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...

Intrahepatic bile duct stones may emerge with manifestations as chronic stomach ache, cholestasis, cholangitis, abscess, post-obstructive atrophy and liver cirrhosis presentation may occur. Thus the treatment of symptomatic hepatolithiasis patients should be provided. Different methods such as biliary decompression, endoscopic, percutaneous or open surgery are recommended for the treatment of patients with intrahepatic gallstones. The aim of the treatment is to extract the stones and regain biliary drainage...

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: Caroli disease is a very rare congenital anomaly characterized by non-obstructive saccular or fusiform dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts. It is associated with bile stagnation and hepatolithiasis, which explain the recurrent cholangitis and portal hypertension as a consequence of congenital liver fibrosis. Although there are several reports of diagnosis in childhood and adult life, the prenatal diagnosis using conventional 2-D ultrasound is rare, with few reports in the literature...

REVIEW
Chuan Li, Tianfu Wen
Hepatolithiasis is highly prevalent in Asia but rare in Western countries. However, the incidence of hepatolithiasis may be increasing in Western countries due to the increased rate of immigration from areas where hepatolithiasis is prevalent. There are many non-surgical treatments for hepatolithiasis, but surgical management remains the best curative treatment for some cases of hepatolithiasis. Surgical treatments can remove biliary stones and relieve stricture of the bile ducts. This review describes the indications for and the outcomes of surgical treatment of hepatolithiasis, including liver resection and liver transplantation...

A 61-year-old Asian man presented with severe right upper quadrant pain which had been worsening for several months. Laboratory results indicated elevated aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase. The subsequent ultrasound, CT and MRI showed a large cystic mass with solid components and severe intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal dilatation. The mass was resected and pathology showed a well-demarcated mucinous cystic lesion with polygonal cells containing ovoid nuclei and abundant pink oncocytic cytoplasm...

Cholangiolocellular carcinoma is a type of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). According to the 2010 World Health Organization classification, this carcinoma is a combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma with stem cell features, cholangiolocellular type (CHC-SC-CLC). The aim of this study was to compare the clinicopathological characteristics of CHC-SC-CLC and conventional ICC. Based on the gross and histologic characteristics, we divided consecutive ICC tumors into CHC-SC-CLC (n = 23), mass-forming (MF; n = 57), and non-MF (n = 22) groups...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) has been widely promoted in recent years as a safe and effective treatment for choledocholithiasis. However, there are no standard guidelines for the treatment of patients who have concomitant hepatolithiasis of the left liver and abdominal adhesions. The aim of the current research was to compare the outcomes of open versus laparoscopic common bile duct exploration with left hepatectomy (OCBDH vs. LCBDH) in patients with choledocholithiasis concomitant with left-sided hepatolithiasis, and to evaluate the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic surgery for choledocholithiasis in patients with abdominal adhesions...
