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...

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...

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...

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...

Imaging of the gallbladder has a key role in the examination of patients with abdominal pain-especially pain localized to the right upper quadrant. Pathologic conditions that affect the gallbladder include cholelithiasis and associated complications such as acute and chronic cholecystitis, choledocholithiasis, gallstone pancreatitis, and cancer. Modalities used to image the gallbladder include ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and nuclear scintigraphy. US is the primary imaging modality used to evaluate entities suspected of being gallbladder disease, as it is both sensitive and specific for demonstrating gallstones, biliary duct dilatation, and inflammatory features...

Lymphomas that occur in the setting of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) are uncommon. Most reported cases derive from Asia and are MALT lymphomas occurring in orbital IgG4-RD. The spectrum of lymphomas among IgG4-RD patients in the Western world remains poorly defined. The aim of this study was to report our experience with lymphomas occurring in IgG4-RD. Eight cases were identified from the pathology and consultation files. The median age was 61 years (range 22-68) at IgG4-RD diagnosis and 63.5 years (range 33-79) at lymphoma diagnosis, with a M:F ratio of 4:4...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a common procedure that, in the United States, is traditionally performed by gastroenterologists. We hypothesized that when performed by well-trained surgeons, ERCP can be performed safely and effectively. The objectives of the study were to assess the rate of successful cannulation of the duct of interest and to assess the 30-day complication and mortality rates. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 1858 patients who underwent 2392 ERCP procedures performed by five surgeons between August 2003 and June 2016 in two centers...

AIMS: Intraoperative cholangiograms (IOC) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy have been advocated to detect biliary anomalies and intraductal calculi. However, IOC increases operative time and patient irradiation, and therefore is not universally used. We hypothesise selective IOC may be a valuable tool in children. METHODS: A retrospective case note review was performed of all children who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy at a single institution by a single surgeon between January 2011 and March 2017...

A 79-year-old male presented to our hospital with abdominal discomfort and was diagnosed with mass-forming pancreatitis. During follow-up, pancreatic stones and a hepatic mass with peripheral bile duct dilation were discovered. Serum IgG4 level was elevated, and a liver tumor biopsy revealed numerous IgG4-positive plasma cells and fibrosis. Chronic pancreatitis with the suspected involvement of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) and IgG4-related hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor (IgG4-HIP) was diagnosed. Therefore, a steroid treatment was initiated...

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is caused by the mutation of polycystins (PC-1 or PC-2), in which cysts start from the collecting duct to extend to all nephron segments with eventual end stage renal failure. The cyst development is attenuated by a vasopressin V2 receptor antagonist tolvaptan which, however, will not affect proximal tubule cysts devoid of V2 receptor. Aquaporin-11 (AQP11) is expressed selectively in the proximal tubule of the kidney and AQP11-null kidneys have a disruptive PC-1 trafficking to the plasma membrane to develop polycystic kidneys...
