Bile duct Injury & endoscopic therapy
Iatrogenic bile duct injuries after surgery remain a substantial problem in gastrointestinal surgery. A variety of injuries can occur.
Percutaneous biliary drainage techniques
Obstructive jaundice and bile leaks are indications for percutaneous biliary interventions. Uncomplicated obstructive jaundice is not an emergency, while septic cholangitis needs urgent intervention.
Drainage of biliary tract technique and results
Since the first report of the opacification of the biliary system by percutaneous direct puncture of the gallbladder in 1921, biliary interventions have evolved a great deal becoming readily available in most hospital
Management of bile duct injuries - Endoscopic approach
Multiple classification schemes exist for bile duct injuries (BDI).
Management Of Bile Duct Injuries - New Approaches
Management of bile duct injuries requires hepatobiliary expertise and transdisciplinary collaboration.
There is an increasing number of percutaneous cholecystostomies carried out in the last years in patients unfit for surgery. The access can be subcostal or intercostal, transhepatic or transperitoneal.
Use Of Magnets In Total Biliary Stricture Technical Tips
Although nonsurgical methods produce high clinical success rates in the treatment of benign biliary stricture, conventional methods are not always successful in cases of severe biliary stricture or complete obstructio
Complex Biliary Stones Percutaneous Approach
The incidence of open and laparoscopic common bile duct exploration for choledocholithiasis has remarkably declined during the last 2 decades.
Endoscopic Approach For Refractory Complications After Various Biliary Operations
Biliary leaks and strictures are the most frequent complications after HPB surgery.
How Image-Guided Percutaneous Treatments Are Redefining the Future of Surgery
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures.
Management Of Malignant Biliary Obstructions
Malignant biliary obstruction most commonly arises from cholangiocarcinoma and pancreatic cancer or as a metastasis from other cancer types.
