BACKGROUND: Choledochoceles may cause biliary obstruction and harbor malignancy. We conducted a 40-year systematic review of the literature for this rare anomaly. METHODS: PubMed and Cochrane databases were accessed 1975-2015 using terms "choledochocele" or "choledochal cyst". Studies reviewed that met the following criteria: English language, published 1975-2015 with human subjects. RESULTS: 325 patients with a choledochocele were identified, including 71 case reports and 254 cases within institutional reviews...

Introduction. Gallbladder volvulus is a rare, potentially fatal condition unless diagnosed and treated early. Choledochal cysts are rare congenital malformations of the biliary tree predisposing to different pathologies and posing the risk of degradation into cholangiocarcinoma and gallbladder cancer. Dealing with both diseases at once has not been published yet in the literature. Presentation of Case. We report a case of gallbladder volvulus in an elderly female who happened to have a concomitant type I choledochal cyst...

Choledochal cysts are rare congenital malformations, comprising of dilatation of the biliary tree of different localization. Classically, classification of choledochal cysts describes five variants of the disease. Type VI choledochal cyst is considered by many authors as the sixth variant of this classification and is described either as a dilatation of the cystic duct or as a cystic duct cyst. We present a rare case of cystic duct dilatation that presented with acute cholangiopancreatitis and a clinical picture consistent of a choledochal cyst in a 10-year-old female patient...

Choledochal cyst is a dilation that encloses the intrahepatic or both extra- and intrahepatic portions of the biliary ducts. Postnatally, ultrasonography is the initial diagnostic modality of choice, allowing for precise measurements of intra- or extrahepatic duct dilatation and identification of stones and sludge. Symptoms depend on the age at presentation. Common bile duct malformations should be considered as a differential diagnosis of a cystic mass regardless of the cyst's size or patient's age, especially in children presenting with abdominal pain, jaundice, and palpable mass...

PURPOSE: There is a predisposition to the development of malignancy in congenital choledochal malformation (CCM) although the degree of risk is unknown. We investigated the role of CA19-9 in bile and the MIB-1 (Ki-67) epithelial proliferation index as markers of an at risk choledochal epithelium at the time of definitive surgery. METHODS: Bile collected at surgery was analyzed for levels of amylase (as a surrogate of pancreatic reflux) and CA19-9. Immunohistochemical staining for CA19-9 and MIB-1 index (expressed as %) was performed on resected specimens...

OBJECTIVE: A small percentage of pediatric solid cancers arise as a result of clearly identified inherited predisposition syndromes and nongenetic lesions. Evidence supports preemptive surgery for children with genetic [multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2), familial adenomatous polyposis syndrome (FAP), hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), and hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) and nongenetic [thyroglossal duct cysts (TGDC), congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAM), alimentary tract duplication cysts (ATDC), and congenital choledochal cysts (CCC)] developmental anomalies...

INTRODUCTION: The congenital combination of duodenal atresia and choledochal cyst has only been reported in a few children. None of these patients had an intrapancreatic choledochocele causing persistent hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn period. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A female newborn presented with duodenal atresia and received a duodeno-duodenostomy on day two of life. The postoperative course was uneventful except for progressive hyperbilirubinemia and elevation of liver enzymes...

To investigate the clinical significance of prenatal diagnosis and prognosis evaluation of congenital choledochal cyst (CCC), we reviewed CCC cases of diagnosed antenatally in our hospital from 2007 to 2013, summarised and analysed prenatal sonographic features and clinical outcomes, and followed these cases up to six months after birth. We found that induced labour was conducted in 7 cases, and term labour progressed smoothly in 14 cases among the 21 cases. Operations were completed within 3 months after birth and all the operation cases received a good prognosis...

PURPOSE: Excision and biliary reconstruction using a Roux loop is the current standard for choledochal malformation (CM). This is un-physiological, delivering bile beyond the duodenum and excluding a significant length of the jejunum from intestinal absorption. We investigated whether this had an effect on post-operative growth. METHODS: Retrospective case-note analysis of children surgically treated for CM. Growth variables were converted to standard deviation scores (SDS) and compared against population norms...

Choledochal cysts are rare congenital malformations of the biliary tract. Traumatic rupture of a choledochal cyst can be misleading. An 11-year-old boy was admitted for peritonitis and intestinal occlusion after blunt abdominal trauma, evolving over 48 h. Laparotomy revealed bile ascites and a suspected duodenal perforation. After referral to our center, a CT scan showed a perforated choledochal cyst. Six months later, a complete excision of the cyst was successfully performed. This treatment is mandatory because of the risk of further complications such as lithiasis, pancreatitis, cholangitis, biliary cirrhosis, and malignant transformation (cholangiocarcinoma)...

Choledochal malformations (some of which are choledochal cysts) may be characterised as an abnormal dilatation of the biliary tract in the absence of acute obstruction. Most appear to be of congenital origin, probably related to distal bile duct stenosis, and almost 15% can now be detected antenatally. Excision and biliary reconstruction using a Roux loop as an open operation is still the standard to compare against, although laparoscopic reconstruction is increasingly reported. This article discusses recent advances in the understanding of choledochal malformation aetiology and classification, together with the role of newer modalites of surgical treatment such as laparoscopic excision and biliary reconstruction...

PURPOSE: Recent advances in ultrasonography have increased prenatal diagnosis of biliary atresia (BA) and choledochal cyst (CC). These conditions are not easy to distinguish before or just after birth. This study investigated diagnostic and therapeutic problems in prenatal diagnosis of BA and CC. METHODS: We retrospectively studied clinical characteristics and progression of hepatobiliary cysts in 10 patients (4 cases of BA, 6 cases of CC) from the time of diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Congenital hepatic hilar cysts are rare. Some are simple and do not require intervention, but some biliary cystic malformations impose the risk of morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVES: To assess a series of five patients presenting with congenital hepatic hilar cysts. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases presenting to our pediatric surgical service between January 2010 and December 2012 and found to have a congenital hepatic hilar cyst...

INTRODUCTION: The most common congenital malformations of the bile duct are biliary atresia and choledochal cyst. In addition, the most common liver anatomical variation is the right hepatic artery aberration. The goal of this study is to characterize a patient with this disease and propose the hepatoduodenal anastomosis as surgical treatment. CASE REPORT: One-month-old patient with suspected congenital biliary atresia due to progressive jaundice and acholia since birth...

OBJECTIVE: Few reports on choledochal malformations (CMs) in European populations exist. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of pediatric CM patients managed in our nationwide referral center for pediatric hepatobiliary surgery between 1976 and 2013 (n = 38; 71% females) were reviewed. RESULTS: Over follow-up time, the relative proportion of fusiform CMs increased significantly (p = 0.007) and the estimated total incidence rose from 1:128,000 to 1:38,000 (p = 0...

INTRODUCTION: Choledochal cyst (CDC) is a congenital malformation of the bile ducts, which can include the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts. We hypothesize that preoperative intrahepatic ductal dilation is not predictive of postoperative intrahepatic involvement. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases of CDC in children diagnosed at a single institution between 1991 and 2013. RESULTS: Sixty-two patients were diagnosed with CDC during the study period with a median follow-up time of 2...

Neonatal obstructive jaundice is frequently explained by biliary atresia (BA) or the presence of a choledochal cyst (CC). Cystic biliary atresia (CBA) has been a proposed as a subtype of BA with projected improved outcomes. We aimed to characterize these lesions further. We conducted an Institutional Review Board-approved review of all patients treated for obstructive jaundice at our tertiary children's hospital over 10 years. Over the decade we evaluated 91 children with obstructive jaundice: 13 CBA, 52 BA, and 26 CC...
