5mm); (3) no acoustic shadow or biliary sludge; (4) perivesical liquid accumulation , and (5) no dilation of the intra- and extra hepatic bile
4) The oxysterol liver X receptor (LXR) plays a major role in the regulation of cholesterol homeostasis, stimulating hepatic bile
acid synthesis, modulating intestinal cholesterol absorption, and enhancing the expression of many of the genes involved in reverse cholesterol transport.
Overexpression of cholesterol 7[alpha]-hydroxylase promotes hepatic bile
acid synthesis and secretion and maintains cholesterol homeostasis.
4) Small studies have recommended combining octreotide acetate and a low fat diet with stenting to decrease hepatic bile
duct dilatation was evident in all the cases.
A total of 32 patients who sustained extra hepatic bile
duct injuries during open and laparoscopic cholecystectomy were included.
During this second operation, extensive hepatic necrosis of the right hepatic bile
duct was observed at the main junction.
Multiple mechanisms regulate circadian expression of the gene for cholesterol 7[alpha]-hydroxylase(Cyp7a), a key enzyme in hepatic bile
