Computed tomography (CT) is useful for diagnosing biliary stones. However, the presence of stones not detected by conventional CT, such as iso-dense stones with CT numbers similar to those of bile or small stones, is problematic. Although conventional CT provides only 120-kVp images corresponding to CT numbers at approximately 70 keV, dual-layer spectral detector CT uses one X-ray source and dual-layer detectors to collect low- and high-energy data simultaneously; retrospective spectral analysis, including virtual monochromatic images with photon energy levels of 40-200 keV, material decomposition images, and spectral curves, can be immediately performed on demand...

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...

Introduction: In general population, gallstone pancreatitis is the most common cause of pancreatitis. However, there are very few literatures that address this topic in post-liver-transplant patients. Clinical Case: A 69-year-old female who had a liver transplant in 2015 due to hepatocellular carcinoma and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) cirrhosis. She had a recent episode of acute cellular rejection that was treated with high dose methylprednisolone 1 week prior to admission...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: A risk stratified approach for selecting patients likely to harbor common bile duct (CBD) stones to proceed directly to endoscopic or surgical stone clearance, rather than less invasive testing, has been proposed. We aimed to assess the performance of three clinical algorithms used to predict CBD stones. METHODS: All patients undergoing first-time ERCP in 2011-2012 due to suspected CBD stones were enrolled prospectively in a clinical database...

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus whether patients who underwent endoscopic common bile duct (CBD) stone removal should be followed up periodically and whether patients with gallbladder (GB) stones should undergo cholecystectomy. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the recurrence rate of CBD stones and the difference in recurrence rate according to cholecystectomy. METHODS: We conducted a population-based study using the National Health Insurance database. Patients diagnosed with CBD stones and with procedure registry of endoscopic stone removal were included...

We aimed to evaluate the efficiency and safety of one-step procedure combined endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) for treatment of patients with cholecysto-choledocholithiasis. A prospective randomized study was performed on 63 consecutive cholecysto-choledocholithiasis patients during 2008 and 2011. The efficiency and safety of one-step procedure was assessed by comparing the two-step LC with ERCP + endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST). Outcomes including intraoperative features, postoperative features (length of stay and postoperative complications) were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Although various endoscopic techniques in situs inversus have been reported, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in patients with situs inversus is always challenging even for an experienced endoscopist. We performed ERCP using two different techniques, and compare the merits of each technique. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74-year-old woman presented with epigastric pain and jaundice for 3 days. Computed tomography revealed diffuse dilatation of the biliary tree, with multiple intrahepatic duct and common bile duct (CBD) stones, in addition to situs inversus totalis...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous procedures to treat common bile duct (CBD) stones typically require access via intrahepatic bile ducts. This study aimed to describe the outcomes of a percutaneous transcystic approach that expelled the CBD stones into the duodenum after percutaneous transcystic balloon dilation of the ampulla (PTCBDA) for high-risk patients who present with acute cholecystitis and CBD stones. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with acute cholecystitis and CBD stones who were deemed too high-risk for surgery or general anesthesia and were treated with PTCBDA and CBD stone removal between March 2010 and November 2015 were included for further analysis...

REVIEW
Thad Wilkins, Edward Agabin, Jason Varghese, Asif Talukder
The prevalence of gallstones is 10% to 15% in adults. Individuals with acute cholecystitis present with right upper quadrant pain, fever, and leukocytosis. Management includes supportive care and cholecystectomy. The prevalence of choledocholithiasis is 10% to 20%, and serious complications include cholangitis and gallstone pancreatitis. The goal of management in individuals with choledocholithiasis consists of clearing common bile duct stones. Acute ascending cholangitis is a life-threatening condition involving acute inflammation and infection of the common bile duct...

The endoscopic approach to pancreatobiliary diseases in postoperative patients had been difficult (1). Percutaneous or surgical interventions were applied as the first line policy. However, using double balloon endoscopes (DBE), especially the short-type DBE, radically made it practical and safe (2, 3). In this study, endoscopic technical tips using the newly developed short-type DBE (EI-580 BT; FUJIFILM Co, Tokyo, Japan) for stone-extraction via papilla for common bile duct stones in patients with Roux-en Y reconstruction post gastrectomy will be introduced...
