leak was defined as a bilirubin concentration in the drain fluid at least three times the serum bilirubin concentration on or after postoperative day 3 or if a radiologic or operative intervention for a bile
collection or bile peritonitis was required.
Theirs usually consist of calcium and a bile
pigment called bilirubin.
Homozygosity mapping identifies a bile
acid biosynthetic defect in an adult with cirrhosis of unknown etiology.
The pathognomic lesion called the florid duct lesion is an epithelioid cell granuloma centered on a bile
duct, which shows evidence of epithelial damage (granulomatous cholangitis) (Figure 4).
Results: Two patients (8%) presented with a bile
leak 3 (12%) with a wound infection and 2 (8%) pati-ents with cholangitis.
2,3) We report a case of an aberrant anatomy of the biliary ductal system that resulted in a bile
leak during LC at a local hospital.
The canalicular membrane contains a bile
salt export pump (BSEP) for monovalent bile salts, a conjugate export pump (MRP2) for divalent bile salts, and various other amphipathic conjugates (Saito et al.
To investigate, Moore and his colleagues fed mice chow that contained a bile
The need for arteriography was an independent risk factor for the development of a bile
leak, even if a patient was sent to get angiographic embolization but did not actually receive it, said Dr.
IF a bile
duct is found to be blocked, the exact position of the gallstones may be found using a specialised imaging procedure where an endoscope is used to inject a contrast medium into the bile ducts before X-rays are taken.
culture obtained during ERCP stent replacement identified Candida albicans and oxacillin-resistant S.
