BACKGROUND In cases of celiac axis occlusion requiring pancreaticoduodenectomy for malignancy, both oncologic curability and control of hepatic arterial flow must be considered, but the operative strategy is undeveloped. CASE REPORT Case 1: A 74-year-old man was diagnosed with hilar cholangiocarcinoma with celiac axis stenosis. The collateral from the superior mesenteric artery ran through the pancreas head but no invasion was observed in preoperative imaging. Hepatopancreatoduodenectomy with preservation of a collateral was performed...

Backgrounds/Aims: Postcholecystectomy syndrome represents a heterogeneous group of symptoms and findings in patients who have previously undergone cholecystectomy. It is rare and under-reported in Saudi Arabia. It can be attributed to many complications such as bile duct injury, biliary leak, retained common bile duct stones, recurrent bile duct stones, and bile duct strictures. In this study, we aimed to analyze the causes and evaluate the approach to postcholecystectomy syndrome in our local Saudi Arabian community because of the vast number of cases encountered in our hospital for gallbladder clinical conditions and its related complications...

Immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-associated cholangitis (IAC) is one of the common organ manifestations of IgG4-related systemic disease (ISD). IAC and autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) may mimic sclerosing cholangitis, cholangiocarcinoma, or pancreatic carcinoma. Diagnosis is based on a combination of clinical, biochemical, radiological, and histological findings.To study the clinical presentation of and treatment strategy for IAC, we reviewed clinical, serologic, and imaging characteristics, as well as treatment response, in 39 patients with IAC...

Iatrogenic bile duct injuries (IBDI) represent a serious surgical complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Often it occurs when the bile duct merges with the cystic duct; and they have been ranked by Strasberg and Bismuth, depending on the degree and level of injury. About third of IBDI recognized during LC, to detect bile leakage. No immediate repair is recommended, especially when the lesion is near the confluence or inflammation is associated. The drain should be established to control leakage of bile and prevent biliary peritonitis, before transferring the patient to a specialist in complex hepatobiliary surgery facility...

We report a case of the pancreas head cancer with peritoneal metastasis, which was resected curatively after chemotherapy. A6 6-year-old male was referred to our hospital for the treatment of biliary stenosis. The serum CA19-9 level was elevated and abdominal CT scan showed stenosis of distal bile duct. By laparotomy, we noticed mass in the head of the pancreas with 8mm of the seeding nodule in a diameter at jejunal mesentery which was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma by intraoperative frozen sections. Therefore, the patient was diagnosed as pancreas head cancer with peritoneal metastasis...

OBJECTIVE: Hepatic cysts with biliary communications (HC) and cystic dilatations of main intrahepatic ducts (CIHD) can cause biliary obstruction, cholestasis, stone formation, cholangitis, liver damage and carcinoma. Conventionally, Roux-Y cysto-jejunostomy is employed to manage these conditions. However, it is technically demanding and may be complicated with major biliary disruption and bacteria migration from intestine to intrahepatic duct. We have carried out laparoscopic cysto-cholecystostomies for HC with biliary communication and CIHD and evaluated outcomes...

Background: Indications for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in children differ from adults. Paucity of data and concerns about potential lower effectiveness and more side effects limit its use even in high volume centers. We retrospectively analyzed indications, success rates, limitations, and side effects of ERCPs in children <18 years. Methods: From January 2012 to March 2015, 54 ERCPs were performed in 31 children (median age 11 (0-17) years; median weight 22 (3...

We retrospectively analyzed 252 patients with end-stage liver disease who had undergone LDLT from January 2009 to September 2015. Of these, 25 had a GRWR of <2.0% (Group A), 204 had a GRWR of ≥2.0% or <4.0% (Group B), and 23 had a GRWR ≥4.0% (Group C). The three GRWR groups demonstrated similar characteristics, except for recipient age and recipient BMI. The overall 1-, 2-, and 3-year graft survival rates were 95.1%, 93.5%, and 93.5%, respectively. However, among the three groups, graft survival rates at 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years were significantly different (P = ...
