Our patient presented with dysuria and pneumaturia without any prior urologic instrumentation. History included choledocolithiasis requiring ERCP and biliary stenting. Imaging showed a large bladder stone. She was taken to surgery and found to have diverticulitis. The sigmoid was resected and the bladder found to have a small fistula tract. The bladder was opened and a large calculus was identified and extracted. The stone was opened and found to contain a biliary stent. While biliary stenting is generally considered safe, migration can occur...

Cholangiolithiasis is a rare condition in animals wherein the choleliths are formed in the biliary tracts causing chronic inflammation. In the current study, choleliths which were firm and friable concretions of approximately 3-4 cm in diameter were found in the bile ducts of the liver of an adult cattle infected with Fasciola gigantica. Two such irregularly shaped concretions were encountered in the two biliary tracts leading to common bile duct in the liver. There were localized irregular saccular dilatation and numerous liver flukes in the bile ducts...

INTRODUCTION: A gallbladder mucocele is the distention of the gallbladder by an inappropriate accumulation of mucus. Decreased bile flow, decreased gallbladder motility, and altered absorption of water from the gallbladder lumen are predisposing factors to biliary sludge. However, it is more likely to be a small part of a complex disease process involving inflammation of the gallbladder wall and changes to the lining of the gallbladder changing the consistency of its secretions. We would like to present a case of mucocele gallbladder operated successfully by laparoscopic cholecystectomy...

BACKGROUND: Bile duct stones after hepaticojejunostomy are considered a troublesome adverse event. Although percutaneous transhepatic procedures using a cholangioscopy is performed to treat these bile duct stones, a peroral endoscopic procedure using a short, double-balloon enteroscope (sDBE) is an alternative. This study aimed to compare the immediate and long-term outcomes of both treatments for bile duct stones in patients who underwent prior hepaticojejunostomy. METHODS: Between October 2001 and May 2013, 40 consecutive patients were treated for bile duct stones after hepaticojejunostomy at a tertiary care hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Choledochal cysts are rare congenital dilations of the biliary tree that can present with non-specific symptoms such as abdominal pain, jaundice, cholelithiasis and pancreatitis. Although most commonly identified in children, they can be found in the adult population. However, because of the non-specific symptoms, this diagnosis may be difficult to make in the adult. A physician therefore must keep this diagnosis within their differential, as it may arise in an unexpected patient population who may present with a convoluted work up...

BACKGROUND: Hepatolithiasis is a prevalent disease in some regions of China. Left-sided hepatectomy is an effective treatment for left intrahepatic bile duct stones with irreversible disease, such as biliary strictures, severe parenchymal fibrosis or atrophy. However, the advantages of laparoscopic left-sided hepatectomy (LLH) over open approach (OLH) are still controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of LLH to those of OLH in the treatment of hepatolithiasis...
