BACKGROUND: Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided choledochoduodenostomy (CDS) is an alternative to percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) drainage in patients with an obstructed biliary system where conventional endoscopic retrograde biliary drainage (ERBD) has been unsuccessful. METHODS: Five EUS-CDS procedures were reviewed to assess whether successful decompression was achieved and maintained. RESULTS: There was technical success in each instance with no immediate complications...

The authors report three (3) cases of choledoco-duodenal fistula due to perforating duodenal ulcer disease. All of them were male, aged from 35 to 55 years. The ulcer symptomatology summarised the clinical feature. They presented respectively a prestenosis, a stenosis and a chronic ulcer The fistula diagnosis was estasblished at the oesogastro-duodenal radiologic exploration showing an opacification of the common bile duct. The surgical treatment concerned bnly to the ulcer. A gastrectomy of exclusion with digestive continuity re-establishment according to FINSTERER in the pre-stenosis, vagotomy associated to gastrojejunostomy and the pylore closing at both other were performed...

INTRODUCTION: Acute pancreatitis is a local inflammatory process that could be generalized by producing mild to severe gastroenteral manifestations, like multiple organ dysfunction and death. OBJECTIVE: To describe epidemiological, clinical, therapeutical characteristics and evolution of patients with AP of our unit and to compare with other studies of Peru and other countries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We realized a review of all cases with AP treated in ICU-INCU of Victor Lazarte Echegaray Hospital over 1 degrees January of 2004 to April, 30 of 2007...

PURPOSE: This article aims to study the one layer end to side choledochusduodenal anastomosis creating a "neopapila" which, because of the mucosa recovering it, would prevent stenosis. METHODS: Thirty male pigs were distributed within 3 equal groups = Group I (control)--conventional choledochusduodenal anastomosis. Group II (experiment)--one layer end to side anastomosis with evertion of the choledochus wall (neopapila). Group III (sham)--isolation and mobilization of the biliar tract with no choledocotomy...

The objective of this study was to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in empyematous or gangrenous cholecystitis. During the period from August 1998 to April 2000, we operated laparoscopically on 64 patients, without any selection, in which we established, preoperatively or intraoperatively, the diagnosis of empyematous or gangrenous cholecystitis using clinical criteria (fever, leukocytosis, persistent pain, abdominal tenderness or guarding), echographic findings and intraoperative or pathological aspects of the gallbladder...

Acquired anomalies of the biliary tract are rare. The aim of this work was to examine their frequency and to assess potential associated danger when performing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A retrospective analysis of clinical charts of 3.870 patients undergoing elective cholecystectomy between 1959 and 1997 was performed. Eighteen cases of choledoco-duodenal fistula, 9 of cholecysto-duodenal and 12 of cholecysto-choledochal fistulas were observed. Two cases of acquired absence of the cystic duct and one cholecysto-colic fistula were also encountered...

Lactobacillus acidophilus is usually considered to be non pathogenic. We report a case of liver abscess due to Lactobacillus acidophilus in a 39 year-old man with chronic pancreatitis complicated by both endocrine and exocrine insufficiency, and with a choledoco-duodenostomy. Lactobacillus acidophilus was isolated in blood and liver samples. Complete recovery of the liver abscess occurred after antibiotherapy. We suggest that the abnormally low duodenal pH secondary to pancreatic insufficiency may have promoted both Lactobacillus acidophilus adhesion and multiplication in this patient...

Acetaminophen high doses toxicity has been reported in clinical and experimental studies in relation with cytochrome P-450. (Acetaminophen metabolite). Thinking that biliary tract obstructions hould increases drugs toxicity because interferes toxic substances excretion or it modify the activity of P-450 we decided to study acetaminophen toxicity in rats with biliary tract obstruction. Male sprague Dawley rats were used (body weight 250-400 gr) in two groups: Group I control (6 rats) with choledoco bile duct ligated; two doses of saline solution 0...

Despite progress in standardization of reconstruction procedures, arterial and biliary complications remain an important problem in liver transplantation. These complications directly affect graft survival and patient mortality. We review a series of 165 consecutive orthoptic liver transplantations performed in 146 patients including 3 children. Biliary reconstruction included bilio-biliary termino-terminal anastomosis in 88% of the cases and bilio-digestive choledoco-jejunal anastomosis in 12%. Biliary complications occurred in 15% (25/165) with more obstruction (64%, 16/25) than leakages (64%, 7/25); 28% (7/25) of these complications were related to biliary drainage (3 obstructions and 4 leakages)...

The authors study the results obtained in biliary surgery using modern radiological and electronic equipment, combining rapid-sequence image intensified fluorography modular cabinet, television screens and videorecorder. The performance of this apparatus has enabled them to obtain precise measurements of pressure as required, a continuous film reproducing the televised image, films taken in series at the time of and during the desired programming with a very short time required for setting up and with multiple views...

A total of 134 cases are discussed, with suppurated acute obstructive angiocholitis, that underwent surgical treatment over a period of 10 years, representing 12,8% of the total number of organic obstructions of the hepato-choledocus. From the standpoint of the etiopathogenic mechanisms the angiocholitis was determined by biliary lithiasis in 59 cases, by sclerosis of the Oddi sphincter in 5 cases, by postoperative cicatriceal stenosis of the main biliary pathway in 2 cases, by hepatic hydatitosis in 16 cases, by Vater ampuloma in 10 cases by cancers of the main biliary pathway in 40 cases and by the congenital cyst of the choledocus in one case...
