Introduction: In a modern aging society, people expect high-quality cancer treatment but don't want to impair their quality of life. These trends made us imagine the needs of a novel cancer treatment system. We intend to develop a less invasive, low-cost cancer treatment system by using an implantable electronic device and introducing photodynamic therapy (PDT) into the treatment of malignancies in internal organs, including HBP area.
Methods: We combined wirelessly powered fingernail-size LED chip, and tissue adhesive biomaterials to develop suture-free, tissue-adhesive, wirelessly powered LED devices. As a preclinical experiment, we investigated the anti-tumor effect of low-power and long-term photodynamic therapy, termed metronomic PDT, by using this device for the mouse cancer model. The device was implanted subcutaneously beneath intradermal tumors on the back of mice, and the mice could move freely in the cage placed on the antenna board that enables continuous illumination on the tumor. During the ten days of treatment, a photosensitizer (photofrin) was administered intravenously for two times.
Results: The mice receiving mPDT showed significant growth suppression of the tumor when compared to the control mice. There was no adverse reaction in the surrounding normal tissues of the treatment group. Also, this experiment showed the effectiveness of green light, which has yet to be used clinically in PDT for the treatment of solid tumors.
Conclusions: Metronomic PDT using implantable optoelectronic devices can be applied safely into the treatment of HBP malignancies as a low cost and less invasive local treatment method.

has shown to have oncogenic transformative effects and thereby increase the risk
of certain cancers. For Campylobacter, no
comparable effects have been demonstrated. Risk factor identification may allow
for timely diagnosis and preventive treatment. To substantiate the oncogenic
potential of Salmonella, this
epidemiological study compared the incidence of extrahepatic biliary tract
cancer (ehBTC) in patients with diagnosed Salmonella
or Campylobacter infection with
the ehBTC incidence in the general population.
infectious diseases surveillance records for patients aged ≥20 years when diagnosed
with Salmonella or Campylobacter infection during 1999-2016
in the Netherlands were linked to the Netherlands Cancer Registry. All
infections were clinically severe infections confirmed by laboratory testing. Incidence
of ehBTC in Salmonella and Campylobacter patients ≥1 year post-infection
was compared to the incidence of ehBTC in the Dutch general population using
Standardized Incidence Ratios (SIRs).
patients were diagnosed with Salmonella and
27.668 with Campylobacter infection.
Of those, nine developed ehBTC at a median of 46 months (range 13-67) after Salmonella infection and seven at median
60 months (range 18-138) after Campylobacter
infection. Compared to the general population, the SIR of ehBTC in Salmonella patients was 1.53 (95%CI
0.70-2.91). In patients aged < 60 years, SIR was 1.74 (95%CI 0.36-5.04). For Campylobacter patients, SIR was 0.97
Although statistical significance was not reached, there
was a tendency towards increased occurrence of ehBTC among salmonellosis
patients, but not among
campylobacteriosis patients. Further research is necessary to uncover putative
oncogenic transformative effects of other enteropathogens.
| ||Observed incidence||Expected incidence||SIR||95% CI||P-value|
|Salmonella, all patients||9||5.88||1.53||0.70-2.91||0.280|
|Campylobacter, all patients||7||7.22||0.97||0.39-2.00||0.868|

Introduction: Choledochal cysts (CC) are a rare congenital
cystic dilation of the biliary tract.
Method: This is a retrospective study of 32 consecutive patients of
CC who underwent multidisciplinary management in last 2 and half years at a
tertiary referral center from Nepal.
Result: A total of 32 patients, 9 males and 23 females were operated.
The average age at diagnosis was 25 years (range from 2 to 56 years). The most
common presenting symptoms were pain 31(96.88%), jaundice 10(31.25%) and mass 5
(15.63%). Triad of pain, jaundice and mass was present in 4 (12.5%). Transabdominal
Ultrasonography (100%) was the initial diagnostic modality of choice followed
by MRCP (68.75%), and CECT (31.25%). ERCP was done for stent placement in 3
(9.38%) patients with severe cholangitis. Type IVA (37.5%) was the most common
type of CC followed by type IC (31.23%), type IB (15.65%), type IA (12.5%) and
type IVB (3.12%). Abnormal pancreaticobiliary duct junction was observed in 3
(9.38%) patients. All patients underwent open cyst excision with Roux-en-Y
hepaticojejunostomy (HJ). There were 2 patients who underwent relaparotomy for
efferent loop obstruction and Peterson hernia. None of our patient had
cholangiocarcinoma on pathological examination.
Conclusion: Choledochal cyst is rare cystic dilatation
of biliary tract. Surgery (Cyst excision with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy) is treatment
of choice. Although the incidence of cholangiocarcinoma is less, long-term
surveillance is essential.

Surgery, Chonnam National University Medical School, Korea, Republic of
Introduction: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant hereditary
disorder. The pathogenesis of NF1 is suggested to be an alteration of the NF-1
gene, which normally functions as a tumor suppressor. A mutation of NF-1
causes the development of viable tumors in various sites. On the other
hand, the synchronous manifestation of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST)
and neuroendocrine tumor (NET) in the background of NF1 is extremely rare.
Methods: Three patients showed synchronous ampullary NET and GIST in association
with NF1 supported by postoperative histopathologic analysis. Surgical
treatments, such as pancreatoduodenectomy and local excision were applied.
Results: No recurrence occurred during the postoperative follow-up period of 10, 9,
and 2.7 years. Synchronous GIST and NET in the background of NF1 is extremely
rare, but the possible coexistence of other tumors in NF1 patients is
relatively higher than that in the general
population. Furthermore, both NETs and GISTs occurring in NF1 patients
tend to be smaller in size compared to that in the general population.
Conclusions: We reports three cases treated with surgical intervention along with the
long-term follow-up results. When NF1 patients present with vague
abdominal discomfort, close attention must be paid to identifying the
coexistence of other neoplasm.

Introduction: Anatomical variation of hepatic arteries are relatively common, but the occurence of pseudoaneurysm of hepatic arteries and its branches are rare,representing 0.01%-2% of all aneurysm.
Method: We observed a case of 53 year old lady with the presentation of obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding associated with obstructive jaundice.
Results: This patient had underwent computed tomography scan after repeated endoscopy failed to reveal the cause of bleeding, which has showed an arterially enhancing lesion at liver segment V with its supply from accessory right hepatic artery origin from superior mesenteric artery.This artery supplies segment V and segment VI of the liver. A subsequent digital substraction angiography demonstrated a large multilobulated pseudoaneurysm of this artery and successful embolization performed using gelfoam. A followup CT scan in 1 month later showed thrombosed pseudoaneurysm.
Conclusions: This case has taught us that high suspicion of biliary disorder should be made when gastrointestinal bleeding is associated with jaundice. An early imaging should be considered when repeated endoscopy is unable to determine the cause of bleeding.Non operative management using transcatheter embolisation can be the treatment of choice in pseudoaneurysms to avoid potentially risky and difficult surgery.

Surgery, Ascension Providence Hospital, United States
Introduction: Cholecystoenteric fistula is a rare complication of gallbladder disease and cholelithiasis, and are typically discovered incidentally during cholecystectomy. Identification and proper management with division and closure of the fistula is of paramount importance.
Type I choledochal cysts are the most common type of choledochal cysts and carry a risk of malignancy. Here, we report a rare case of a patient with cholelithiasis who during laparoscopy was found to have both cholecystoduodenal and cholecystocolonic fistulas, as well as a Type I choledochal cyst. We describe an algorithmic approach to definitive management.
Case description: A 55-year-old female presented with cholelithasis. During laparoscopy, a cholecystocolonic fistula, a cholecystoduodenal fistula, and a Type I choledochal cyst were found. Take-down of fistulae and cholecystectomy were performed followed by definitive biliary resection and reconstruction in a staged approach.
To our knowledge, this is the first case of a patient with two incidentally discovered cholecystoenteric fistulae and concurrent choledochal cyst. Furthermore, as avoiding definitive biliary bypass in the presence of a septic focus, we describe a step-wise approach to management.
Discussion: In patients with acute cholecystitis or choledocholithiasis, imaging frequently does not show evidence of gallbladder fistulas. Most commonly, these processes are only identified intra-operatively.
We present a rare case of a patient with multiple cholecystoenteric fistulae and a Type I choledochal cyst discovered intra-operatively. This case report highlights an algorithmic approach to the management of not only dual or multiple cholecystoenteric fistulas, but also a concurrent Type 1 choledochal cyst.

syndrome is difficult to diagnose
pre-operatively and treat, represent a particular challenge for hepatobiliary
surgeons. Furthermore, it increases the risk of intra-operative biliary injury. The aims of this study were to point out some
particular aspect of diagnosis and treatment of this condition that will be
helpful for the surgeons.
retrospectively reviewed all records of the patients, surgically treated for
Mirizzi syndrome from January 2013 to January 2018 in Dhaka Medical College
Hospital, Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital and BIRDEM General Hospital.
Results: During the
study period, a total of 1320 cholecystectomy were performed, out of which 50
patients were diagnosed with Mirizzi syndrome, Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy was
the treatment of choice and subtotal cholecystectomy were done for 7 cases and
laparoscopic cholecystectomy for 2 cases. There was no post-operative
mortality. Two cases of biliary fistula
resolved with conservative management and another case required percutaneous
treatment for resolution of an intraperitoneal postoperative collection.
Mirizzi syndrome continues to be a disease of difficult diagnosis and
treatment. General surgeons without long experience in hepatobiliary surgery
should refer the patient to a specialized hepatobiliary surgical center.

improve the ultrasound diagnosis of the gallbladder (GB) pathology by
developing a diagnostic algorithm for the atypical ultrasound image of acute
Materials and methods: 5600 patients
with acute pathology of GB were examined in CCH No. 68 in 2010-2018. Of these,
360 patients at primary ultrasound revealed changes in the GB that didn't allow
them to be attributed to the image of acute cholecystitis. Patients were
divided into 2 groups: the 1st group included 120 (33.3%) patients whose
changes in the GB included thickening of the wall without increasing the size
of the GB, the 2nd - 240 (66,7%) patients with an increase in the size of the
GB, but without changes in the wall.
Results: In a
retrospective analysis in the first group, the following changes were
diagnosed: Mirizi syndrome - in 10 patients, GB tumor - 20, reactive changes in
the wall against other diseases and conditions - 62, biliary digestive fistula
- 12, perforation of the GB at acute cholecystitis - in 16 patients.
In the second group, only 30
patients were diagnosed with acute cholecystitis, including empyema of GB - in
8 patients, enlargement of GB wall' was regarded as a manifestation of
congestive or "hungry" GB, which does not require specific treatment
in 210 patients.
Conclusions: After comparing
the findings of ultrasound examinations of GB and final diagnoses, an analysis
of inconsistencies was performed. The diagnostic criteria to help make a
differential diagnosis between various pathologies of GB were formulated.

Introduction: The Classification of bile duct injuries (BDI) after cholecystectomy is a clinical challenge for surgeons because of their heterogeneity in site and clinical presentation and is relevant for decision making and treatment and to allow comparison.Although the outcome of BDI is related to the type, aetiology, time interval between lesion and diagnosis, and between diagnosis and treatment and to the presence of sepsis, however the current systems are mainly based on anatomical features not considering the wide spectrum of clinical presentation.
Aim: This study aims to evaluate the performance of 5 classification systems, namely Strasberg, Stewart-Way, Siewert, Hannover and ATOM, to discriminate complex BDI (cBDI, Strasberg's E ) patterns and the relative surgical treatment.
Methods: This study includes 24 selected patients with cBDI out of a total 56 admitted with BDI, studied by MRI and ERCP and surgically treated between 2010 and 2019. Data were retrospectively collected and patients were classified according to the 5 systems. X2-test was adopted.
Results: The Strasberg, Stewart-Way and Siewert systems allowed to classify 19/24 patients,the Hannover's 22/24 and ATOM all patients, p< 0.049. All patients underwent biliary reconstruction with poliduct-jejunostomy, 3 required vascular repair and 3 major liver resection; one patient died from septic shock.
Conclusions: The ATOM classification performed better than other in this small selected cohort of patients with cBDI. Future classifications might include clinical variables to better guide the therapeutic decision.

Akhter Ahmed, Bangladesh
Surgery, Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College, Dhaka, Bangladesh
Introduction: Conventionally it is assumed that raised level of CA
19-9 (Carbohydrate antigen 19.9) is related to malignancies of liver,
pancreas and biliary tract. During dealing with a patient with bile duct
stones, we surprisingly noticed significant rise of CA 19-9 level. Then we
decided for a study to explore the relationship of significantly raised CA 19-9
with biliary tree stones.
Method: We randomly encountered a total of
138 diagnosed biliary stone cases at department of Hepatobiliary Surgery,
Hepatology and Gastroenterology over one year time. All patients were evaluated
by routine blood test, USG, MRCP and CA 19-9 levels. CA 19-9 levels were also
measured at 5th post-operative day and at 4 week follow up day. During
ERCP, cytology was taken, and bile duct wall was sent for histopathology in
Result: Mild and moderate raise in CA 19-9 level (38-1000U/ml) were
noted in 15 cases and significantly raised (> 1000 U/ml) in 8 cases. 3 of
these cases showed simultaneous presence of hepatic micro-abscess and 6 cases
showed angulation, dilatation or tortuosity of CBD in MRCP. All histopathology reports
were proved benign. In 4 weeks post ERCP/ operation follow up, CA 19-9 levels
became normal in all cases except 3. However, they also showed significant reduction
in CA 19-9 level.
Conclusion: Significantly raised level of CA 19-9 is associated not
only with Hepatobiliary malignancies but also with complicated bile duct stone

Surgical Gastroenterology, Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Hospital, India
Choledochal cyst (CDC) treatment requires CDC excision and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy. These
patients with CDC are known to have anomalous pancreatic bile duct junction (APBDJ) leading to
complications indicating surgery as a definitive treatment. Some of these patients who have larger
remnant of distal bile duct after CDC surgery have recurrence of pancreatitis and malignancy.
Material and methods: We report three cases of CDC who were operated earlier with CDC excision (1 year to 12 years in past)
and presented with recurrent pancreatitis. On evaluation, all three cases had a remnant of distal common
bile duct persisting even after the prior CDC surgery. MRCP revealed a dilated intrapancreatic CDC
remnant with hypointense foci (stones or protein plugs). An ERCP was suggestive of a sludge filled dilated
CDC remnant with APBDJ.
These patients had undergone a completion distal CBD excision. After the procedure, they have no
recurrence of pancreatitis.
Conclusion: CDC remnants have persistent reflux of pancreatic juice in remnant CBD due to APBDJ. This result in
protein plug/calculi formation in the remnant CBD. This along with a lesser chance of distal CBD getting
spontaneously cleared (due to absence of bile flow post CBD excision), predisposes to swelling in the
distal CBD, result in recurrent acute pancreatitis.

Hepatobiliary Surgery, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center, Philippines
Introduction: The incidence
of extrapulmonary-tuberculosis in the Philippines is 1.9%. Patients of lower
socio-economic status are particularly vulnerable due to community factors,
poor health seeking behaviours and less access to specialized health centers. In
addition the cost of diagnosing and treating hepatobiliary-tuberculosis is
prohibitive. Complicating the management is the lack of protocol in diagnosing
and treating this rare disease. This study aims to review cases of obstructive
jaundice secondary to hepatobiliary-tuberculosis treated in Jose R. Reyes
Memorial Medical Center.
Methods: Charts of patients
treated for obstructive jaundice secondary to hepatobiliary-tuberculosis from
January to December 2019 were reviewed and analyzed.
Results: There were 142
cases treated for obstructive jaundice from all etiologies. Among these, 10
cases were caused by hepatobiliary-tuberculosis(Table 1). Age ranged from 19 to
56 years old with 1:1 male/female ratio. Most common reason for consultation is
abdominal pain progressing to jaundice which may last from several months to a
year. Three patients had a history of previous pulmonary-tuberculosis treatment.
had histology consistent with tuberculosis(Figure 1). The other two were
diagnosed based positive bile TB PCR and imaging respectively. Six patients had
extrahepatic ductal obstruction while 4 had hilar/intrahepatic ductal
involvement. Seven out of 10 patients were managed with biliary-enteric bypass.
There was 1 morbidity, managed conservatively, and no mortality.
Conclusion: Treatment of
hepatobiliary-tuberculosis depends on the available expertise and equipment. Biliary-enteric
bypass is an option for centers lacking ERCP or PTBD; however long-term follow
up is needed.

Introduction: Because of its rarity, solitary intrahepatic biliary cyst (SIBC) is often misdiagnosed and under-recognised. The aim of the present study was to focus the attention on this disease and improve its diagnosis and treatment.
Methods: 3 cases of SIBC were reported, and the clinical features and lessons were presented.
Results: Case 1 was found a solitary cyst involving segments 4,5,8. She was misdiagnosed as simple liver cyst. Before admission, she received laparoscopic liver cyst fenestration followed by two open surgeries including cystojejunostomy and jejunostomy because of biliary fistula. She was cured through mesohepatectomy in our hospital. Case 2 had a cyst involving the confluence of left and right hepatic ducts. He underwent local cyst excision and biliodigestive anastomosis in the local hospital. Recurrent cholangitis occurred after the surgery. Left hepatectomy with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy was performed for the treatment of biliary stricture in our hospital. Case 3 was found a solitary cyst at hepatic hilum by ultrasonography. MRI and contrast-enhanced CT scans indicated multiple stones in the cyst and local cyst wall thickening. He underwent left hepatectomy with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy and regional lymphadenectomy. Histologically, SIBC was confirmed in all 3 cases and papillary adenocarcinoma was found in the case 3.
Conclusion: To our knowledge, the present series of 3 cases represent the largest series of SIBC reported to date. SIBC should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients with a solitary cystic mass at the hepatic hilum. Aggressive hepatectomy may be recommended as a curative treatment.

most commonly isolated bacteria were Escherichia
coli (E.coli) (23.3%), including six
extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) -producing E. coli. Of the patients with positive bile cultures, bacteria were
detected in 35.7% cases via the Verigene® system. Four (66.7%) of
the ESBL-producing E. coli were
identified as having the CTX-M gene. Detection rates of the Verigene®
system significantly increased when the number of bacterial colonies were more
than 106 CFU/mL. These cases with colony of more than 106
CFU/mL exhibited significantly higher inflammation, suggesting the presence of
Conclusions: It was suggested that the multichannel gene
autoanalyzer is a new system for the rapid detection of causative bacteria in
patients with infectious acute cholangitis and cholecystitis.

Introduction: Lemmel's syndrome is obstructive jaundice caused by periampullary duodenal diverticulum in the absence of choledocholithiasis or tumour. We describe a unique presentation of Lemmel's sydrome and enterolith ileus.
Method: 67 yo female presented to our emergency department with fever, epigastric pain and vomiting. Patient had a past history of cholecystectomy. Investigations demonstrated raised inflammatory markers and cholestatic LFTs. Biliary tract ultrasound showed a 1.6 cm CBD with dilated intrahepatic ducts and a 5cm complex peripancreatic cystic mass. CT confirmed this mass as a duodenal diverticulum. During ERCP, 5cm periampullary duodenal divertculum containing a large enterolith causing extrinsic compression on the CBD. Attempts to remove the enterolith during ERCP failed. Sphincterotomy and stent insertion was performed. Patients biliary symptoms resolved and she was discharged for further outpatient investigation and assessment. Five days later, she represented with severe lower abdominal pain and vomiting. CT scan demonstrated distal small bowel obstruction with a 4.2 x 2.8 cm intraluminal filling defect at the transition point. At laparotomy, a large solid intraluminal mass was found at the point of obstruction which was removed using enterostomy.
Result: During treatment for Lemmel's syndrome, endoscopic disimpaction of the enterolith and its removal or disintegration is essential to prevent its passage enbloc into small bowel. Enterolith Ileus should be considered in patients representing with SBO post Lemmel's treatment.
Conclusion: Enterolith dislodgment, if not retrieved, can lead to ileus and should be considered as the likely cause of SBO post treatment of Lemmel's syndrome.

Introduction: Infectious complications in hepatectomy for biliary cancer have still frequently occurred. Postoperative bacteremia requires systemic intensive care and it's important to provide an initial treatment by appropriate antibiotics. Results of cultures in patients who suffered bacteremia were investigated in this study.
Method: We reviewed 179 patients who underwent hepatectomy for biliary cancer from January 2008 to December 2018. Risk factors of bacteremia, and the relationship between bacteria caused bacteremia and those cultured from bile and abdominal drainage fluid.
Results: There were 120 males, and the median age was 69 years old. There were 179/ 33/ 14 cases of bile duct cancer/ intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma/ gallbladder cancer. Right hepatectomy/ left hepatectomy/ right trisectionectomy/ left trisectionectomy/ central bisectionectomy were performed in 81/ 76/ 7/ 14/ 1 patients. Bacteremia was occurred in 41 patients (23.0%). Risk factors of bacteremia were long operative time (p=0.01) and intra-operative blood transfusion (p=0.01). Bacteremias were associated with abdominal abscess (20.2%), cholangitis (14.3%), bile leakage (13.4%). Total incidences of bacteremia were 88 times and 24 kinds of bacteria were detected in blood culture. Postoperative bile/ abdominal drainage cultures were collected in 34/34. The consistency of blood culture with bile/ abdominal drainage cultures were 58.8%/ 52.9%. It was 63.2％ when at least one of the drainage cultures was consistent with blood one.
Conclusion: Bacteria cultured from postoperative bile and abdominal drainage fluid matches with those from bacteremia in more than half of the patients. The results of these cultures could be considered in selection of antibacterial drug in immediate-use.

Introduction: HBPS department of YSH is one of the two dedicated HBP units in the Country of 55 million. BDI is usually tackled by HBP surgeons. OUr annual incidence of 0.8% seemed a bit higher than most of the published data but it included referred BDI cases.
Method: Hospital based, retrospective case series based on hospital data.
Results: There were 43 cases of BDI in 5 years of which, 72% (31 cases) is due to benigh cases and 33% (12%) cases to malignant cases. Post laparoscopic cholecystectomy accounted for majority (60%) of the BDI due to benign disease while post hepatectomy cases for cholangiocarcinoma accounted for 40% of BDI due to malignant disease. Most of the BDI presented with bile leak but 10% with stricture.
DIscussion: Various methods (surgery, interventional radiology and endoscopy) performed for BDI in the study period will be discussed with outcome with regard to mortality and morbidity.
Conclusion: Early recognition and multidisciplinary approach is the key for management of BDI.

Discussion: Cholelithiasis is common and laparoscopic
cholecystectomy is the treatment of choice.
Being one of the most performed surgeries since its introduction, surgical hemostatic clips have
been widely used and are generally considered safe. Despite the increasing
number of annual cholecystectomies performed, postcolecystectomy clip migration
(PCCM) remains rare. Apart from migration to the biliary tree, is the
cause of other complications such as duodenal ulcer or clip embolism.
Conclusion: Complications such as duodenal ulcer of
clips should always be present in patients with abdominal pathology and a
history of recent cholecystectomy.

Fetus in fetu is a rare mysterious medical phenomenon in which an acardiac fetiform mass is commonly located in abdomen of a neonate or infant. We report on a case of a 7 month-old girl with a gradually enlarging right upper abdominal mass and progressive jaundice, whose plain abdominal radiograph, ultrasonography, and CT scan revealed a mass in which the contents favor a fetus in fetu. Obstructive jaundice was caused by billiary obstruction by FIF.
Per-operative findings of deformed fetus presenting well formed lower
limbs, one rudimentary upper limb, spina bifida and anencephaly was noted. It was
surrounded by a separate gestational sac about 22 wks size. Umbilical cord was
communicated with the mesenteric vessels. Cyst contained yellowish fluid. Liver
was shrunken & cirrhotic. Umbilical cord transfixed and separated. Deformed
fetus was removed and gestational sac excised. Fetus weighed 415 gm. Liver
biopsy was taken. Her immediate and early post-operative period was uneventful. Patient was discharged on 11th POD, with follow up advices. Unfortunately, patient did not come for follow up.

Department of Surgery, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, India
Introduction: The incidence of bile duct injuries (BDI) after cholecystectomy is around 0.6%. Biliary strictures following BDI is a worrisome complication. Laparoscopic hepatico-jejunostomy for benign biliary strictures has been a rarely attempted operation. The aim of this study is to describe our experience in the laparoscopic approach for biliary stricture repair- currently not attempted by many centres.
Methods: A retrospective study of eleven (11) patients with benign biliary strictures secondary to cholecystectomy, operated between 2012 and 2020, was conducted. Demographics, co-morbidities, presenting symptoms, details of index surgery, type of lesion, pre-operative and post-operative workup and therapeutic interventions were recorded. The biliary strictures were staged according to the Bismuth-Strasberg classification. A side to side anastomoses with Roux-en-Y reconstruction was performed in all cases. Complications, mortality, and long-term follow-up were recorded.
Results: Eleven patients with benign biliary strictures were operated. the female to male ratio was 3:2. The mean age of the population under study was 30 years. All eleven cases operated were E3 according to the Strasberg classification. The operative time recorded was ranged between 240 - 480 mins. The median value of bleeding was 200 mL (range 50-1100 mL). Oral intake was started in the first 48 hrs. No bile leak was noted in any of our patients. No patients have underwent re-intervention till date. No mortality was recorded. The maximum follow-up was 48 months (Range 2-48 months).
Conclusion: The benefits of minimal access techniques may be utilized successfully in the management of benign biliary strictures with acceptable morbidity.

Introduction: IgG4 cholangiopathy is a rare autoimmune condition
that is poorly understood. It can mimic several other diseases such as primary
or secondary biliary or sclerosing cholangitis, and even cholangiocarcinoma.
Methods: We report our case series of 3 patients who first presented with painless obstructive
jaundice, and were subsequently discovered to have IgG4 cholangiopathy. We discuss
the interesting clinical features and outcomes of each patient.
Results: All 3
patients were male, with a mean age of 64 years (range 54-71 years). Initial imaging
for all 3 patients showed lesions at the hepatic hilum, suspected to be
malignant strictures. Ca19-9 levels were elevated. Our first patient underwent an
open extended right hepatectomy. Histology revealed sclerosing cholangitis with
increased IgG4 plasma cells. Our second patient had elevated IgG4 serum levels,
and was diagnosed to have IgG4 cholangiopathy. He responded well to a trial of
steroid therapy, and interval imaging 3 months later demonstrated resolution of
the hilar mass. The third patient was offered resection for a suspected
cholangiocarcinoma, but opted for traditional medicine. 3 years later, he represented
to our clinic, and repeat imaging showed stable disease with no progression of
the lesion. None were associated with autoimmune pancreatitis.
Conclusion: IgG4 cholangiopathy is an important differential
diagnosis to be considered in cases of suspected malignant hilar strictures in
middle aged-men. Serum IgG4 levels should be included as part of the
pre-operative work up, in order to avoid unnecessary interventions and their

Jae-Woon Choi, Korea, Republic of
Chungbuk National University, Cheong-ju, Korea, Republic of
A 37-year-old male came with complaints of epigastric pain for 3 days. The pain was continuous in nature and was not radiating to the back. He had no nausea, vomiting, or fever. On examination, there was epigastric tenderness in the epigastric and right hypochondrium region. CT showed localized fat infiltration along the falciform ligament and adjacent hepatic parenchymal hyperemia. Torsion of the falciform ligament is an extremely rare disease that leads to severe acute abdominal pain. This condition is well managed conservatively with anti-inflammatory analgesia. However, we have performed surgical intervention (division of falciform ligament) because he had a severe pain despite supportive care.

that low socio economic status (SES) is associated with increased prevalence of
Methods: We interrogated a
convenience sample from our cancer center registry and obtained 479 subjects
diagnosed with pancreatic cancer between 2010-2018. We selected subjects (328) by zip code,
representing the plurality of the cases in our catchment area. Outcome variables were overall survival and
socio-economic status; predictor variables were recurrence, insurance, type of
treatment, gender, cancer stage, age, and gender. We converted zip code
to municipality and culled data using Adjusted Gross Income (AGI, FY 2017) We then created groups using a cutoff at
filings of >$100,000 of AGI; Low SES = municipalities where ≤5% of the filings were
over $100,000, Mid SES = municipalities where between 5%-40% of the filings
were over $100,000, High SES = municipalities where ≥40% of returns were
over $100,000. Comparative statistical analysis was performed using Chi-square
for nominal and ordinal variables, a two-way ANOVA test was used for continuous
variables, p- value was set at 0.05.
Results: Although it was not
statistically significant different, it appears that pancreatic cancer was
diagnosed more often in poor neighborhoods.
Conclusion: Access to care, exposure to known risk
factors, optimal nutritional status, overall fitness, co-morbidities all play a
role in pancreatic cancer. Our study
shows that zip codes should be considered a new risk factor for developing

Introduction: Biliary pressure has been postulated to have a direct impact on cholangiovenous reflex and cholangitis in patients with obstructive jaundice .Only limited human studies are available regarding biliary pressure monitoring.
Methods: A total of 30 patients with obstructive jaundice either benign or malignant and who didn't undergo any interventional or surgical procedure for relief of the jaundice were included in the study.The clinical and demographic details were noted and Liver function test was taken on the day of biliary decompression. Bile pressure was monitored intraoperatively with a pressure transducer system proximal to the obstruction. In patients who undergo PTBD ,bile pressure was noted immediately after inserting the Chiba needle.
Results: A total of 30 patients were included in the study (19 males and 11 females). The mean age of the patients included were 55.9 years.The etiology of obstructive jaundice was periampullary carcinoma in 13 patients , carcinoma head of pancreas in 3 patients, carcinoma gallbladder in 3 patients , hilar cholangiocarcinoma in 6 patients ,postcholecystectomy biliary stricture in 1 patient ,Chronic pancreatitis with distal CBD compression in 2 patients, Post Liver transplant CBD stricture in 1 patient and choledocholithiasis with cholangitis in patient. (19 distal obstruction and 11 proximal obstruction).The mean biliary pressure in patients with distal obstruction was 22.3 and in patients with Proximal obstruction was 18.09. The highest recorded biliary pressure was 52 in periampullary carcinoma.
Conclusions: First study of its kind to document the biliary pressure and the bile characteristics in obstructive jaundice of various etiologies.

cholecystectomy bile leaks are rare, have an incidence of 0.1-1%, and
regardless of their nature, most cannot be detected during surgery. In 5-30%
they correspond to a Luschka duct, which are small ducts that originate in the
right hepatic lobe, extend to the gallbladder bed and may or may not drain to
the extrahepatic bile ducts. The objective of this publication is to present
the experience obtained in the minimally invasive and conservative management
of a post-laparoscopic cholecystectomy bilioma due to leakage of the luschka
patient of 59 years, with Diagnosis : Multiple Myeloma + Cholelithiasis,
undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Two days after surgery, a subphrenic
collection is identified, which is drained percutaneously, with ultrasound
guidance, and bilious fluid is obtained, approximately 800 cc. Subsequently, in
the collagioresonance a bile duct lesion is identified, which is born from the
right posterior bile duct and is directed towards the hepatic bed, with
indemnity of the main bile duct. The debit decreases progressively during the
first week, presenting a negative debit 15 days after placement and the
catheter is removed one week later. The evolution 1 month later is favorable,
with normal ultrasound controls.
Conclusion: The minimally invasive treatment of bile
leakage can be considered a safe option in patients with minor injuries, in
order to avoid exposure to invasive procedures such as endoscopic retrograde
cholangiography and its possible complications.

Introduction: Procedures over the biliary tree are
controversial prior biliary surgery and may contribute to bacterobilia which
can also lead to higher rate of wound infections. We aim to analyze our
population of patients under biliary surgery and the risk factors leading to
study from 2014 to 2019. Surgeries involving biliary tree were included. Prior
biliary procedures and personal risk factors were analyzed. Univariate analysis using Student t test, Fisher and
chi2; relative risk was measured and multivariate logistic regression was performed.
Statistical significance level set at 0,05.
Results: Out of 86 biliary surgeries
bacterobilia was documented in 45; 40 had some kind of biliary procedure
prior final surgery (p=0,001), with a relative risk of 5,66 (CI 95% 1,8-17,3).
When type of procedure was analyzed, percutaneous drainage showed no difference
but ERCP had higher rate of bacterobilia (RR 3,14, CI95% 1,29-7,58). When
previous cholangitis was developed bacterobilia was also higher (RR 2,53, CI
95% 1,04-6,1); but when patients were operated while receiving antibiotic
treatment the rate of bacterobilia was lower (p=0,05). Age, sex, BMI,
alcoholism, smoking, diabetes, inmunosupressive treatment, level of bilirubin, hemoglobin
or albumin showed no difference. The presence of bacterobilia was not
associated to higher rates of wound infection or other postoperative
complications. In multivariate analysis only being operated under antibiotic
treatment showed statistical significance (p= 0,041).
Instrumentation of the biliary tree prior surgery should be performed in
selective patients. Surgery during antibiotic treatment is feasible and reduces
the risk of bacterobilia.

inflammation of gallbladder wall can extend and infiltrate adjacent organs
which can be mistaken for malignancy on preoperative investigations and,
intraoperatively, often leads to extensive surgical resections. Only the
histopathologic examination of the specimen allows correct diagnosis. We hereby review clinicopathologic findings of a case which underwent
extensive surgeries on clinical, radiological and intraoperative suspicion of
gallbladder carcinoma which turned out to be xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis.
Xanthogranulomatous inflammation extended into liver, duodenum and colon in our
case. A 74-year-old woman was
admitted to our hospital for right upper quadrant and epigastrium discomfort
and diagnosed as gallbladder carcinoma by ultrasonography, computed tomography
and fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ( FDG-PET).
Serum CA19-9 (62.6 U/ml) were elevated. We diagnosed the
lesion preoperatively as a gallbladder carcinoma with direct invasion to the
liver bed and colon. We performed subsegmentectomy of the liver S4a + S5 and
lymph node dissection of the hepatoduodenal ligament with segmental colon
Several reports have demonstrated that FDG-PET is useful
in differentiating between benign and malignant lesions in the gallbladder.
However, there is a limitation in the ability of FDG-PET to differentiate
between inflammatory and malignant lesions. We herein present a case of
xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis misdiagnosed as gallbladder carcinoma by
ultrasonography and computed tomography. FDG-PET also showed
increased activity. In this case, FDG-PET findings resulted in a false-positive
for the diagnosis of gallbladder carcinoma.

Introduction: Patients undergoing hepato-pancreato-biliary

biliary drainage may be necessary. This is a known higher risk for bacterobilia
and leads to a higher risk for developing surgical site infections. Standard
antibiotic prophylaxis may not be totally effective in this population.
analysis including biliary surgeries from 2014 to 2019. Bile culture,
antibiotic prophylaxis and postoperative complications were analyzed.
Statistical analysis was made using Fisher
and chi2. Differences were considered statistically significant at
P < 0.05.
Results: 86 patients underwent biliary surgery. Surgical
bile duct injuries (34.9%) and post liver transplant biliary strictures (14.0%)
were the most frequent diagnosis. Only 24 patients (27.9%) underwent
preoperative percutaneous biliary drainage and 47 patients (54.6%) had at least
one preoperative ERCP. Hepatojejunostomy was the most frequent surgery (75,6%).
Bacterobilia was confirmed in 52%; the most common bacteria were Escherichia
spp (55%) and Klebsiella spp (42%). Antibiotic most common prophylaxis was
cefazolin (23.3%) or Piperacillin-Tazobactam (23.3%). Prophylaxis was only
effective in 21% of Bacterobilia. Postoperative complications were more
frequent when prophylaxis was inadequate (p=0,015). However, when type of
complication was analyzed we found no difference; even though wound infection was
higher when prophylaxis was inadequate it was not statistically significant.
Conclusion: Bacterobilia can be high specially
when previous instrumentation of the biliary tree has been performed.
Antibiotic prophylaxis should be escalated when bacterobilia is suspected to
diminish risk of postoperative complications.

treatment for complication of portal biliopathy is an exception. It implies a
high risk of bleeding given the prominent collaterals present in the
hepatoduodenal pedicle secondary to portal cavernomatosis.
Methods: Descriptive study of 4 patients who presented
serious complications linked to portal biliopathy that required
surgical management within the Clinical Hospital of Universidad Católica.
Results: Woman 59 years, with necrohemorrhagic
pancreatitis (1996), biliodigestive bypass (2001) and portal cavernomatosis
(2004) was presenting repeated episodes of hemobilia, one with hypovolemic
shock. A Warren's shunt was tried (2005), but it failed. Then, a choledochal
devascularization and hepatic-jejunal re-anastomosis intervention was made. Man
57 years, with HIV positive and serious pancreatitis (2007), developed portal thrombosis
post inflammatory and cavernomatosis and presented repeated cholangitis. Roux-en-Y
reconstruction was made (2012). Woman 47 years, with V Leiden factor deficit
and portal cavernomatosis (2012), presented repeated cholangitis.
After multiple endoscopic stent treatments, given recurrence of cholangitis and
jaundice, a Roux-en-Y biliary reconstruction was performed (2015). Man 47 years,
with neonatal trombosis and cavernomatosis for omphalitis, had portal devascularization
surgery made at 7 and 14 years old, he had repeated cholangitis despite multiple
endoscopic attempts. Roux-en-Y was performed. All anastomosis was made in biliary
conducts with multiple collateral veins that were handled with bipolar
coagulation, ligatures and stiches. On the long term, none repeated episodes of
hemobilia or cholangitis.
The surgery could be a
definite solution for portal biliopathy complications. However,
it has only been made for selective cases because it implies high complexity

Introduction: Bouveret's Syndrome is defined as gastric outlet obstruction from a large gallstone in the duodenum through a cholecystoduodenal fistula. It is a rare variant of gallstone ileus and accounts for less than 3% of all gallstone ileus cases. We present a case of cholecystoduodenal fistula with 4cm stone causing obstruction in duodenum in the setting of malrotation.
Case presentation: 67 year old Caucasian female with history of symptomatic cholelithiasis presented with acute onset nausea/vomiting and oral intolerance for 5 days. She had mild epigastric and right upper quadrant tenderness on examination. CT revealed cholecystoduodenal fistula with one large stone (4 cm) impacted in duodenum causing gastric outlet obstruction with malrotation. Endoscopy was not attempted due to the size of stone and presence of malrotation. Patient was taken to OR for exploratory laparotomy and stone removal. Large cholecystoenteric fistula was clearly identified and duodenotomy was performed distal to obstructing stone in the 3rd portion of duodenum, stone was extracted and duodenum was closed transversely. She was deemed too high risk for cholecystectomy and fistula repair given age and co-morbidities. Post op course unremarkable. Upper GI gastrograffin series demonstrated no leak post operatively.
Doing well on last follow up.
Discussion: Patients with Bouveret's syndrome have high mortality rate(12-27% due to delay in diagnosis, advanced age and comorbidities. Endoscopic stone retrieval/fragmentation is often the first step in treatment and surgical treatment is required in upto 91% of patients and considerable debate remains over optimal treatment option.

Ever since the start of study of anatomy there have been numerous anatomical variations or aberrations that have been reported for gall bladder, cystic artery, cystic duct, hepatic artery, common bile duct and portal vein. Performing surgeries with laparoscope provides magnified image, thereby allowing a better vision and understanding of the local anatomy of the gall bladder, calot's triangle and porta hepatis. Cholecystectomy requires keen observation and meticulous dissection. Even the most experienced surgeons have encountered complications during laparoscopic cholecystectomy owing to the anatomical variations. Here is a case report of a 36 year old lady presenting with acute calculous cholecystitis. She was taken up for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Only the fundus of the gall bladder was seen. Gall bladder was to the left of falciform ligament. During dissection there was sudden gush of blood which could not be controlled, hence converted to open surgery. There was malrotation of the liver causing falciform ligament to be at the right of gall bladder. There was malrotation at the porta with portal vein anterior to common bile duct and hepatic artery and anomalous portal vein being the site of bleeding.

Introduction: Subtotal cholecystectomy has become a widely accepted
alternative for patients presented with acute cholecystitis resulting in
significant inflammation and anatomic distortion. Recurrent cholecystitis of
the remnant gallbladder is an accepted complication of this procedure. International
studies have shown completion cholecystectomy to be the definitive management
of recurrent cholecystitis. Few investigators in the United States have focused
on management of this scenario, and to this point open surgical approach has
Methods: Cholecystectomies undertaken by one hepatobiliary surgeon over a two-year period from 2017-2019
were reviewed. Cases of patients with previous cholecystectomy who then
presented with acute cholecystitis and underwent laparoscopic completion
cholecystectomy were compiled and reviewed to determine interval from initial
cholecystectomy, operative time, use of intraoperative cholangiography, use of
intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG), placement of drain, and total length of
hospital stay (LOS).
Results: Seven patients met inclusion criteria. The mean interval
from initial cholecystectomy was 22 months (range 3-89 months with one patient
presenting an unknown length of time from initial operation). Mean operative
time was 119 minutes (range 79 minutes to 141 minutes). Five patients had an
intraoperative cholangiogram and one case was completed with intraoperative
ICG. A drain was left at the completion of three out of seven cases. Average
LOS was less than one day (range 0-2) with three patients discharged in good
condition post-operative day 0.
Conclusions: Laparoscopy is
a safe and effective approach to completion cholecystectomy for patients with
recurrent cholecystitis that avoids an open surgical procedure.
