cystadenocarcinoma is a very rare cystic tumor that arises in the liver or,
less frequently, in the extra hepatic biliary system.
It has been shown to
arise in congenital liver cysts, bile ducts, biliary cystadenoma. There are few
literature on recurrence of biliary cystadenocarcinoma at common bile duct
after a complete resection by major hepatectomy previously. Therefore we report a
case of recurrent biliary cystadenocarcinoma in a 65-year-old woman treated by
re-surgery after four years since the first operation left hepatectomy followed
by six course of chemotherapy.
Previously in 2014, we performed a left hepatectomy by glissonean approach for left portal pedicle. Patient discharged at
POD#8 without complication. After the 4th year of follow-up, tumor recurred aggressively CA 19-9 was 347U/ml. Tumor was at whole proximal CBD and dilation of anterior and posterior bile ducts by CT. Distal CBD was free. The MRCP showed a solid
mass in the CBD portion with partial obstruction of CBD, and takes
only proximal CBD, T.Bil level was 35. We performed a resection of CBD and hepatojejunostomy. The surgery,
post-operative course was uneventful. Surgical specimen
shows yellow-brownish multilocular cystic lesions with mucinous fluid contents
of 6x3cm. Histology shows a
cystic neoplasm forming papillary projections, covered by an atypical
mucin-producing glandular epithelium. The tumor was determined as well
differentiated biliary cystadenocarcinoma.
We report here a rare
case of re-surgery on recurrent biliary cystadenocarcinoma in extra hepatic biliary tract. Since
the naturally low malignant cystadenocarcinomas are less invasive on
surrounding vessels and tissues during re-surgery.

To compare the efficacy of
endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (ENBD) and endoscopic biliary stenting (EBS) in
preoperative biliary drainage (PBD).
Methods: ENBD and EBS related literature of patients with
malignant biliary obstruction published before September 2019 were collected
from PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library for comparison analysis. Revman 5.3
statistical software was used for analysis.
Results: Nine studies were used for our comparative
study. A total of 1435 patients were included, which consisted of 813 in the
ENBD group and 622 in the EBS group. Meta-analysis showed that patients with
malignant biliary obstruction who received ENBD had reductions in the rates of
preoperative cholangitis (RR = 0.44, 95% CI = 0.34-0.58,
P < 0.00001), preoperative pancreatitis (RR = 0.69, 95% CI = 0.50-0.95,
P =0.02), stent dysfunction (RR = 0.58, 95% CI = 0.43-0.80,
P =0.0008), morbidity
(RR = 0.77, 95% CI = 0.64-0.93, P = 0.007) and postoperative pancreatic fistula
(RR = 0.65, 95% CI = 0.45-0.92, P = 0.02) compared with patients who received
Conclusions: The rates of
preoperative cholangitis, preoperative pancreatitis, post-operative pancreatic
fistula, stent dysfunction, and morbidity of ENBD patients were lower than
those of EBS patients. In clinical practice, the physical condition of each
patient and their tolerance should be fully considered. ENBD should be given
priority. EBS should be replaced if stent dysfunction or intolerance occurs.

Background: Balloon-assisted stone extraction
(BASE) can be applied to remove the common bile duct (CBD) stones during
laparoscopic CBD exploration (LCBDE).
Aim: This study aimed to analyze the
efficacy of BASE.
Methods: A retrospective analysis of patients
with CBD stone who underwent LCBDE using BASE at our center from 2001 to 2017,
was conducted. The outcomes of BASE and potential factor for failure of this
technique were also evaluated.
Results: A total of 163 patients underwent
LCBDE using BASE for CBD stone were enrolled. Success rate of BASE was 88.3%
(144/163) and 19 (11.7%) patients with failed BASE underwent Basket for
lithotripsy additionally. The reason for aborting BASE were stone impaction
(n=6), small stone (n=4), migration into IHD (n=3), and others (n=6). The overall
success rate of stone clearance was 97.5% (159/163). The mean CBD diameter was
15.8 mm (range 7-34 mm), and the largest stone size was 13.8 mm (range 3-36 mm).
22 patients had undergone gastrectomy prior to LCBDE. The overall complication
rate was 4.9% (8/163), including bile leakage in 2 patients (1.2%), bleeding in
2 patients (1.2%) and pancreatitis in 4 patients (2.4%). There was no procedure
Conclusions: BASE for CBD stone is safe and effective
techniques for the treatment of CBD stones.

Introduction: Development of new technique in the
anastomosis between first part of duodenum and distal end of common bile duct. Efficacy established in the study.
and method: A prospective study, period since 2003 till today. About 494
cases operated by this technique. Done in the cases where obstructive
jaundice developed in the distal end of common bile duct by
stones ,benign strictures,malignant lesion. Stones of common bile duct removed by endoscopic papillotomy and dormia basket.Some
cases procedure failed to clear the stones from common bile duct,
because of lithogenic bile repeated stones formed causing obstruction,after
papillotomy some cases further development of stricture, in old and
debilitated patient with malignant lesion at distal CBD where major surgical intervention
harmful to life. Different investigation like liver function test, cancer marker , Radiological
investigations ultrasonography, CT scan ,MRCP performed for the diagnosis.
Technique of anastomosis: This ensure intraoperatively a hermetic

Introduction: Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) is a common procedure done in hepatobiliary centre for biliary obstruction or leak. Complications of PTBD range from minor complication such as access port discomfort to a major one which is death1. Bleeding post PTBD is not uncommon. This a case of upper gastrointestinal bleeding of a patient with history of PTBD insertion who presented to us more than one month post procedure.
Case report: A 58-years-old man presented with UGIT bleed 1 month prior to PTBD insertion, however OGDS and colonoscopy was normal. He had a history of subtotal gastrectomy with roux-en-Y reconstruction in 2010 for pyloric adenocarcinoma. PTBD was inserted because he presented with cholangitis secondary to distal common bile duct stricture during previous admission.
Due to current problem, Computed tomography (CT) angiography was performed, however no evidence of acute arterial haemorrhage either from the biliary tree or from the bowel.
Subsequently hepatic artery angiogram was done as he has another episode of haematemesis. In this study, there was active contrast extravasation into biliary system in keeping with arteriobiliary fistula. The bleeding was successfully controlled after superselective embolization was performed. At the same time, balloon plasty of CBD stricture was performed and Fogarty catheter was used to dislodge blood clots in CBD.
Conclusion: Haemobilia is a potentially fatal complication of PTBD and should be considered as one of the cause of gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with unidentified source. Interventional radiology provides effective and save method for the treatment of arteribiliary fistula.

Single incisional cholecystectomy is
surgical methods that provide comparable results to standard laparoscopic
cholecystectomy (LC). However, single incisional cholecystectomy has been
accused for post-operative incisional hernia. The incidence of incisional
hernia after single incisional cholecystectomy is reported about 2.4% in
short-term follow-up studies and up to 10.9% in long-term follow-up. One of incisional
hernia's risk factor is surgical technique failure during wound closure.
This study evaluated the incidence of
patients developing incisional hernia after single incisional cholecystectomy,
and we hope to suggest a solution in overcoming incisional hernia arising out surgical
technique failure by using barbed suture material during wound closure.
Total number of 984 patients underwent
single incisional cholecystectomy between March 2014 and December 2019. During
this period, there were 689 patients who underwent wound closure with
non-barbed suture material and 295 patients with barbed suture material. Both
Patient groups were comparable in age, gender, BMI and operation time. 2 patients developed incisional hernia in non-barbed
suture group and none in the barbed suture group. The incidence of incisional
hernia was higher in the non-barbed suture group, but
statistically insignificant. (p=1.00)
Our large volume study showed lower incidence
of incisional hernia to comparing previous studies. Also, there was no
incisional hernia patient in barbed suture group, although statistically
insignificant, which means possibility of overcoming the surgical technique
failure using barbed suture material. We hope to share our experience on safety
and advantage of using barbed suture in wound closure leading to a decrease in
the incidence of incisional hernia.

Surgery, Toho University Ohashi Medical Center, Japan
cholecystectomy (SIL-C) is a surgical procedure that emphasizes esthetic
outcomes. The method used for making the incision in the umbilical region, as the
sole wound site, is of the utmost importance, not only because it determines
the esthetic outcome, which is a merit of SIL-C, but also because it greatly
influences the operability of the forceps. In SIL-C, making a large incision is
important to reduce restrictions on procedures resulting from interference
between forceps. However, because vertical incisions involve large incisions,
the incision line may deviate from the navel and result in poor esthetic
outcomes. Therefore, in the pursuit of both favorable esthetic outcomes and safety, we developed a new
classification system for the shape of the umbilical region, and have been
performing incisions according to these classifications. Specifically, the
shape of the navel was classified into the following six types: vertical; horizontal;
T-shaped; inverted T-shaped; round with shallow depression; and protruding. In
addition, we are performing the following types of incisions according to the
shape of the umbilical region, to prevent deviation of the incision line from
the umbilical region: vertical; horizontal; T-shaped; inverted T-shaped; and
S-shaped. By performing incisions that match the shape of the umbilical region
in this manner, a large incision can be made without affecting the esthetic
outcomes, thereby promoting the operability of forceps and ensuring both
favorable esthetic outcomes and safety.

Background: Preoperative hemorrhage and postoperative bile leakage are important complications of hepatectomy. various methods to reduce intraoperative bleeding during liver transection have been reported. We designed a randomized clinical trial to compare crush clamp method and ultrasound dissection in liver transection.
Method: Twenty patient experienced hepatectomy with the crush clamp method.
The ultrasonic dissection group consisted of twenty patient.
The surgical outcomes including:
Operation duration,bleeding ,p.c request,bile leakage,hospital stay duration and hepatic failure are evaluated and compared.
Results: Mean blood loss was 247 cc in crush clamp group and 232 cc in ultrasonic dissection group.
Blood loss in ultrasonic method was lower but the difference did not raech significant level.
Duration of surgery was almost identical .but duration of transection in crush clamp group was shorter than ultrasonic dissection group.
That mean the crush clamp method is faster.
Acidosis and hepatic failure were rare and difference was not significant.
There were not cases with infection and bile leakage.
Conclusion: Post operative complications did not differ in two groups.but duration of transection in crush clamp was shorter than ultrasonic dissection method .and blood loss was almost identical .beacuse ultrasonic dissection is an equipment dependent procedure and more expensive therefore we trend to perform liver transection with crush clamp method.

Surgery, National Health Insurance Service Ilsan Hospital, Korea, Republic of
cysts in adults are rare and the treatment requires complete excision of the
cyst with bilio-enteric reconstruction. Here,
we present three cases of robotic single site plus one port choledochal cyst
excision with roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy.
Methods: Choledochal cyst excision was performed using the Da Vinci single-site surgical platform (DVSSP) with one additional port. Additional robotic
12mm-port was placed on right anterior axillary line, along the
level of DVSSP. Choledochal cyst was meticulously separated and dissected from the
level of hepatic hilum to intrapancreatic common bile duct and distal part of
the cyst was ligated with hemo-loc clips then divided. After transecting proximal part of the cyst at the level of
hilum, roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy was performed intracorporeally in a
retrocolic manner. Drain was inserted at the additional port site and specimen
was delivered through umbilicus.
Results: The mean age of 3 patients was 53 ± 6 years old. Two patients were female and diagnosed with type I choledochal cyst. One patient was a male diagnosed with type IVa choledochal cyst. Mean cyst size was 6.2 x 3.8cm. Mean total operation time was 475 ± 41 minutes. Mean postoperative length of stay at the hospital was 9 ± 3 days. One case of pancreatitis and one case of bile leakage occurred. Both cases were resolved with conservative care.
Conclusion: Robotic single
site plus one port choledochal cyst excision seems feasible and safe with better anatomic visualization and increased dexterity for

Hepatopancreatoduodenectomy (HPD) is usually indicated for advanced biliary
cancer. Operative resection is the only way to cure for the advanced biliary
cancer patients. However HPD is infrequently performed widely because of high
morbidity and mortality. The aim of this retrospective study was to clarify the
impact of resected liver volume on outcomes of HPD.
Methods: Between January,
1999 to December, 2019, 302 biliary cancer patients underwent bile duct
resection with hepatectomy (HBD; n=108) or pancreatoduodenectomy (PD; n=160),
or HPD (n=34). Liver resection was categorized right lobe resection (R;
including left trisegmentectomy), left lobe resection (L), and minor liver resection
(M; e.g. S4aS5).
Results: Sever morbidity (Clavien grade 3B or over) and
mortality of R-HPD, L-HPD, and M-HPD were 27%, 0%, 6% and 9%, 0%, 0%
respectively. Those of R-HBD, L-HBD and M-HBD were 13%, 7%, 9% and 13%, 2%, 0%
respectively. Those of PD was 7% and 0.6%. Pancreatic fistula (PF) rate (ISGPF
grade B or C) of R-HPD, L-HPD, and M-HPD was 30%, 57%, 40% respectively, and that
of PD was 31%.
Conclusion: HPD limited to left lobe or minor liver resection is
safe and feasible operation. In our series, the mortality of HPD and HBD was
similar, and it was mostly occurred after R. In contrast, PF rate seems to be
not correlated to resected liver volume. Preserving the liver function is the
top priority for R-HPD.

Background: Technical pItfalls and complications
of vascular resection (VR) for treatment of hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCh)
play an important role in outcome but not completely described
in the literature. The aim of this study was the analysis of technical aspects of VR that may cause
serious complications in single hpb surgery department.
Patients and methods: Within five years
(January 2015 to December 2019), 107
consecutive patients with HCh underwent radical surgery with curative intent in
Moscow Clinical Scientific Center. Resection
and reconstruction of the portal vein
and hepatic artery was performed
if necessary for a complete removal of the tumour. Different types of portal
vein and hepatic artery reconstruction
analyzed and complications assessed.
Results: We performed 14 arterials and 26 portal vein reconstruction. Cancer-free
margins achieved in 80%. The perioperative morbidity and mortality rates of
this cohort were 60,2% and 10.7%, respectively.
Technical pitfalls includes: hepatoduodenal inflammation due to severe
cholangitis, left hepatectomy, significant gap among arteries or veins. Management
of cholangitis before liver resection, modifying technique of vascular
reconstruction to prevent using inflamed vessels not mobilisation of remnant
liver may decrease the risk of vascular complications.
Conclusions: Radical liver resection combined with vascular reconstruction provides
acceptable morbidity and mortality for treatment of HC. Technical pitfalls of vascular resection should be taken
into account as an important factor of surgical outcome.

Introduction: Bile duct injury is the serious complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Therefore, the critical view of safety has been accepted as a safe method for gaining a sufficient view of Calot's triangle. However, it usually difficult to achieve a critical view of safety in presence of severe gallbladder inflammation due to a frozen Calot's triangle. Universal safe procedure of laparoscopic cholecystectomy by exposing the inner layer of the subserosal(SS) layer was introduced by G.Honda et al (2016). This approach was used for many cases with cholecystitis with severe inflamed gallbladders in our institution. The purpose of this study was to evaluated outcomes of LC that performed by exposing the inner layer of the serosal layer.
Methods: Demographic data and peri-operative data were recorded for both emergent and elective LCretrospectively. The procedure was done by dissecting the gallbladder along the SS-inner layer to achieve cystic duct. The outcome of procedures were recorded.
Result: Fifty patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy in which technique was used. In all cases, the procedure was complete without complications. The mean operating time was 62 minutes (range 30-110 minutes) and the mean of blood loss was 22.6 ml (range 2-100 ml).
Discussion: Applying this standardized procedure, we have safely performed LC in all cases without intraoperative cholangiography. But we considered that exposing the ss-inner layer without of gallbladder perforation more easily in case of acute cholecystitis because the ss-inner layer had become frozen by fibrotic change.

Introduction: There is no universal surgical strategy for patients with Todani type IV-A BD. Traditionally, excision of the extrahepatic cyst with hepaticojejunostomy is the standard procedure, but long-term outcome is not satisfactory. This study aimed to analyze postoperative and long-term outcomes of a consecutive series of patients undergoing curative hepatectomy for Todani type IV-A BD.
Patients and method: All patients who underwent hepatectomy for Todani type IV-A BD in adults during 2007 to 2017 were retrospective analyzed at high-volume centers. Patients were divided into two groups, A: re-operation group who had previous surgery, B: operation group who received initial surgical treatment. Two principles were used in this study. One is radical but conservative hepatectomy and the other type of surgery was based on the anatomical level of diseased bile duct. Segmental BD was removed by anatomical hepatectomy.
Results: There were 117 patients enrolled，66 in group A and 51 in group B. Hepatectomy was performed in 63 and 43 patients in group A and B, respectively. Local BD excision in hepatic hilum was performed in 3 and 8 patients (P = 0.084), while radical resection of cystic dilatation of intrahepatic bile ducts was achieved in 60 and 48 patients, respectively. Postoperative morbidity, but not mortality in group A，was significantly higher.
Conclusion: Based on the morphological feature and anatomical level of intrahepatic BD, the strategy of radical but conservative hepatectomy is safe and effective for the treatment of complex Todani type IV-A BD in adults.

Introduction: Injury to the second portion of the duodenum and ampulla of Vater is a highly morbid complication. We report successful management of iatrogenic perforation with a pancreas-sparing partial duodenectomy and duct-to-mucosa pancreatobiliary reconstruction.
Methods: A healthy 40 year old woman underwent laparoscopic right nephrectomy for xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. The inflammatory mass abutted the duodenum and two large duodenotomies resulted from cautery injury. The anterior and medial walls were extensively disrupted. A cholecystectomy was performed and a wire was advanced through the cystic duct to identify the ampulla. We confirmed that the ampullary mucosa was not salvageable. The antrum was divided and duodenum carefully separated from the pancreas head. The pancreatic and bile ducts were divided sharply. Duodenum was stapled proximal to the mesenteric vessels. A retrocolic Roux limb was delivered. Pancreas head was invaginated with an outer layer of permanent 3-0 suture. The 1 mm ducts were united with suture and 3.5 French feeding tubes secured as stents. Duct-to-mucosa anastomosis was completed with absorbable 6-0 monofilament suture. A gastrojejunostomy was completed distally.
Results: The patient had no post-operative complications. Drains were removed on post-operative day 8 after drain amylase studies were normal. She was discharged on post operative day 11.
Conclusions: Pancreas-sparing partial duodenectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction is a viable option to treat severe proximal duodenal injury or perforation. As an alternative to total duodenectomy, it may preserve the duodenum's roles in regulation of gastrointestinal hormone release and organization of gastric motor function.

Hepaticojejunostomy (HJ), a standard method of
bilioenteric anastomosis, is done with interrupted sutures by most surgeons.
This study compares the safety and economics of continuous (CSHJ) and
interrupted suture hepaticojejunostomy (ISHJ).
A retrospective analysis of all HJ between January 2014 and December 2018. Patients with
type IV or higher biliary injuries, duct diameter < 8 mm and/or associated
vascular injury were excluded.Patient demographics, pre-operative parameters including
diagnosis, intra operative parameters including type of suture, number of
suture, suturing time, and postoperative morbidity (Clavien Dindo) were
recorded. Mc Donald's Grade A and B were
considered as good outcome. Cost of suture type (PDS-3-0/5-0 mean cost-INR
686/length, vicryl 3-0, 4-0 mean cost- INR 486/ length), suture length,
operation theatre time (INR 5000/hour) were considered for comparison of
economics of both techniques. Statistical analysis in SPSS 22.0 software.
patients were analysed. 468 patients underwent ISHJ and 88 patients underwent CSHJ. Figure 1 shows patient details.Monofilament sutures were preferred in continuous
suturing. Demographic profile was comparable. ISHJ required significantly increased
number of sutures, time and cost. Bile leak was significantly more in the ISHJ.
54 patients had bile leak (6 CSHJ and 48 ISHJ). One patient in each group had
mortality due to septic shock. Four patients (3 ISHJand 1 CSHJ) required PCD
insertion and two patients require single time aspiration. Morbidity was
comparable. Follow up McDonald's Grade B was significantly higher in ISHJ.
CSHJ is safe, economic and worthy of routine practice.

Kee-Hwan Kim, Korea, Republic of
Surgery, The Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine, Uijeongbu, Korea, Republic of
Bile duct injuries are the most dismal complication in cholecystectomy. The Critical View of Safety (CVS) has been
shown to be a good way to obtain the secure anatomical identification. We try
to get an early detection of imaginatory dissection line (fig. 1.) for
obtaining the CVS using an ICG fluorescence cholangiography during laparoscopic cholecystectomy
Method: Sixty six patients
underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy using ICG cholangiography. Thirty patient
were grouped into two groups, with one group underwent needlescopic grasper
assisted single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (nSLIC) (15 patients) and
another group underwent Three port laparoscopic cholecystectomy (TPLC) (61
patients). The surgical outcome that was composed with early detection time and rate of imaginatory dissection line, critical view of
safety (CVS) time, major procedure time and total operation time, and the
postoperative complication was made.
operation time(skin to skin) of TPLC was shorter than nSILC group (nSILC: 67.9 ± 24.1 min,
TPLC: 45.0 ± 22.8 min, p = 0.007). We can't get visualization of biliary
tree in five patients who was treated with ERCP. Imaginatory dissection line
obtaining rate showed fifty six patients (56/61) in two groups. And, confirmatory
dissection line obtained all patients in two groups (56/61).
Conclusions: ICG fluorescence
cholangiography during laparoscopic cholecystectomy may get an early imaginary
and confirmatory dissection line during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Kee-Hwan Kim, Korea, Republic of
Surgery, The Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine, Uijeongbu, Korea, Republic of
Introduction: Left-sided gallbladder is a relatively rare
anatomical variation that is frequently associated with a biliary system
anomaly. In patients with LSGB, LC is associated with a higher incidence of
bile duct injury (4.4%), necessitating the establishment of a safe surgical
approach in these patients. Here, we describe a case of left-sided gallbladder
with cirrhotic liver treated by using an ICG fluorescence cholangiography
during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
& Results: 62-year-old
man with gallbladder adenomyoma was admitted to our hospital. Computed tomography
demonstrated that the gallbladder was centrally dislocated and left-sided
gallbladder with right-sided ligamentum teres. A laparoscopic cholecystectomy
was performed. The round ligament was attached to the right side of the gallbladder,
and the left-sided gallbladder was diagnosed by intraoperative findings (figure
1.). The patient was discharged 2 days after surgery without postoperative
fluorescence cholangiography should be used in cases of left-sided gallbladder during
laparoscopic cholecystectomy. An assessment of the extra- and intrahepatic
biliary system is essential to avoid biliary injury in cases of left-sided

Introduction: To discuss and compare outcomes and complications of routine T-Tube placement versus primary closure in patients who underwent open common bile duct exploration for choledocholithiasis.
Methods: This is a randomized prospective analysis of 35 patients categorized as moderate to high risk for CBD stone who underwent open choledochotomy. Thirty (30) patients were included and were randomly divided into 2 groups: T-tube drainage (TD, n=20) and primary closure (PC, n=10). Morbidity was graded using the Clavien-Dindo (CD) classification.
Results: Patients in the TD group had less overall complications than patients in the PC group (20% vs 30%, respectively; p=0.083); however, the TD group had more severe (CD Grade III or higher) complications than the PC group (75% vs 0% respectively; p=0.052). Complications included two patients with bile leak for pulled t-tube, post-op biliary stricture and acute kidney injury which required dialysis. Most of the complications in the PC group (3/10, or 30%) were minor complications (CD 1 or 2). There was no mortality in both groups. All 30 patients were followed-up for 3-12 months, with a median follow-up time of 6 months.
Conclusion: There was no statistically significant difference between T-tube placement and primary closure in terms of morbidity and long-term outcomes. Primary closure of the choledochotomy after biliary exploration for common bile duct stones is a safe and feasible alternative to routine T-tube drainage in carefully selected cases.

Introduction: Post-surgical bile duct lesions occurred in approximately 0.5% of cholecystectomies and are associated with high mortality. These lesions include leaks, stenosis, removal of part of the duct and arterial injury. Percutaneous and endoscopic approaches can definitely treat biliary lesions.
Objective: To present the experience of a clinical case where percutaneous interventional treatment of a bile duct stenosis with cholangioplasty and placement of tutors was performed in a single time.
Methods: 79-year-old male with a history of high blood pressure, left cerebrovascular accident, open cholecystectomy 20 years ago and bile duct stenosis.
tomography with contrast that showed proximal extrahepatic bile duct stenosis Bismuth II. An endoscopic cholangiopancreatography is performed that identifies the bile duct stenosis and an attempt is made to place a stent while passing a guide, but the catheter device cannot be placed through the diameter of the stenosis. Interventional radiology performs a percutaneous cholangiophraphy identifying the stenosis and performs balloon expansion of the same and inserts a biliary silicone drain along with two 8 fr and 10 fr tutors handcrafted from multipurpose drainage catheters (Cook medical) in parallel at the level of stenosis (maximum diameter 20 Fr)
Outcome: patient presented a favorable evolution after the procedure, presented as a minor complication an acute renal injury that resolved with observation
Conclusion: Percutaneous treatment with balloon dilation and the use of tutors at the level of stenosis was safe and successful in our patient.

Introduction: Endoscopic papillectomy (EST) is widely used in the treatment of benign biliary diseases. However, EST can permanently disrupt the function of the Oddi sphincter, resulting in an increased risk of cholangitis, choledocholithiasis, and cholangiocarcinoma.
Methods: A novel surgical procedure was designed to repair disrupted sphincter Oddi. During the operation, the duodenum was cut on the anterior wall. 8F catheter was perforated through the duodenal nipple from the common bile duct. The injured sphincter was intermittently sutured until the size of the opening was equivalent to the diameter of the catheter. Then the anterior wall of the duodenum was sutured continuously. The drainage tube was placed in the common bile duct, and be removed 4 weeks after the operation.
Results: A total of 14 patients received the repair surgery. The primary diseases for EST were cholecystolithiasis combined with choledocholithiasis in 8 cases and hepatolithiasis combined with choledocholithiasis in 6 cases. In these 14 patients, four of them simultaneous underwent cholecystectomy, five of them underwent hepatectomy. Postoperative complications rate was 14.3%, including bile leakage (1 case), incision infection (1 case). The mean follow-up time was 39.5 months. One patient still had intermittent cholangitis due to severe biliary cirrhosis, and the other 13 had a good prognosis (92.8%).
Conclusion: As a safe and effective surgical method to reconstruct SO function, Oddi sphincter repair retains the normal physiological structure of the biliary tract, and is expected to be a solution to solve and prevent serious long-term complications after EST.
