Impacted common bile duct (CBD) lithiasis poses therapeutical challenges and repeated attempts of removal may result in life-threatening complications. CASE REPORT. A 45 year-old female patient was admitted in emergency for right upper quadrant abdominal pain and jaundice. Clinical, lab data, abdominal ultrasound (US) and cholangio-MRI established the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis and obstructive jaundice due to distal CBD lithiasis. Endoscopic retrograde colangiopancreatography (ERCP) confirmed the presence of a distal CBD stone but extraction failed...

Hepatolithiasis is defined as the occurrence of stones proximal to the biliary confluence and represents a prevalent disease in South East Asia being uncommon in Western countries. Biliary sepsis, hepatic abscesses and cholangiocarcinoma are considered potential complications. The Authors describe a case of a 68 years male patient affected by a left massive intrahepatic lithiasis secondary to common duct stones and associated to acute pancreatitis. The patient refused surgery and was submitted to a conservative transhepatic percutaneous treatment...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent acute pancreatitis (RAP) represents a diagnostic and treatment challenge. Although it's real frequency is difficult to establish some works have reported 25-60% prevalence. In most, the etiology is recurrent biliary stones untreated or consumption of alcohol. The information we have about the RAP in our midst is scarce. AIM: To review the clinical characteristics and follow-up of a group of patients with RAP. METHODS: Clinical charts of all patients with AP admitted to our Institute from January 1, 1995 to December 31, 2005 were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: To assess the role of alkaline phosphatase (AP), gamil-glutamyltransferase (gammaGT) and abdominal ultrasound (US) as predictors of choledocholithiasis in patients sustaining acute biliary pancreatitis. METHODS: Data was prospectively collected during a period of 31 months. Forty patients were included, 30 were female and the mean age was 49 +/- 16. All patients sustaining acute biliary pancreatitis were enrolled. Patients with clinical jaundice and severe pancreatitis were excluded...

Twenty four patients with biliary pancreatitis were divided into three groups: A (18 subjects underwent surgery on the biliary tract seven days after admission to hospital when acute signs disappeared); B (3 cases were operated two months later), and C (3 patients underwent emergency surgery for acute cholescistitis with simultaneous acute pancreatitis). A cholecistectomy-choledochostomy through a Kehr tube was performed in all patients. Pressure in the main biliary duct (MBD) was measured. Only group A was significant (18 cases)...

Between 1980 and 1995 in the Section of General and Oncological Surgery of the Department of Surgery of the University of Catania, on a total of 1715 biliary surgical procedures, 926 were performed on the elderly patients, 287 of which in emergency. Cholelithiasis (469 cases) morbidity 4.5%, mortality 0.4%; acute colecystitis, (247 cases) morbidity 21%, mortality 12%. Choledocholithiasis (122 cases) surgical treatment (51 cases) morbidity 21.6%, mortality 3.9%; endoscopic treatment (71 cases) morbidity 9.4%, mortality 0%...
