Internalization of a Second Transhepatic Biliary Access with a Captured Microwire Forced-buckle Maneuver: Description, Anatomic Applications, and Results.
Summary of "Internalization of a Second Transhepatic Biliary Access with a Captured Microwire Forced-buckle Maneuver: Description, Anatomic Applications, and Results."
Percutaneous biliary drains are classified into external and internal/external drains. Internal/external drains can drain bile externally and internally (ie, anatomically) into bowel. Internal drainage is usually desired because it is associated with less morbidity. Not infrequently, operators encounter a situation in which one of two transhepatic biliary access tracts has been successfully internalized, and a second access cannot be internalized. The present report describes a technique that internalizes a second percutaneous transhepatic biliary access-relying on an initially successful first internalization-by capturing a microwire from the externalized to the internalized tract and forcing it down into the bowel. The anatomic applications and results of this technique are described.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Surgery of the smooth muscle sphincter of the hepatopancreatic ampulla to relieve blocked biliary or pancreatic ducts.
Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.
Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.
Infection of the biliary passages with CLONORCHIS SINENSIS, also called Opisthorchis sinensis. It may lead to inflammation of the biliary tract, proliferation of biliary epithelium, progressive portal fibrosis, and sometimes bile duct carcinoma. Extension to the liver may lead to fatty changes and cirrhosis. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Biliary Tract Neoplasms
Tumors or cancer in the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.
Background/Aims: To report our experiences with percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage to treat non-anastomotic biliary strictures following orthotopic liver transplantation in an effort to evalua...
We propose and demonstrate an all-chalcogenide microwire Raman laser, the first to our knowledge. The gain medium is provided by the Raman effect in a chalcogenide microwire and two Fabry-Perot resona...
Background/Aims: This study aims to compare the clinical outcomes and costs between percutaneous transhepatic biliary stenting (PTBS) and surgical bypass. Methodology: We randomly assigned 142 patient...
PURPOSE: We assessed the effects of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage on renal function in patients with obstructive jaundice using the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and evaluat...
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a technically-demanding procedure. The ability to selectively cannulate the bile duct and pancreatic duct (PD) quickly and atraumatically is th...
In a prospective study the investigators perform repeated cholangioscopies in all patients that received percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) for a variety of malignant and be...
Biliary obstruction can be relieved by biliary stent. Ascending infection of biliary passage (cholangitis) causes hospitalization and obstruction of stents. Reflux of intestinal fluids thr...
The primary purpose is to compare patency of two different types of biliary metal stents, i.e. covered versus uncovered Nitinella metal stent. Secondary purposes are to determine frequency...
Biliary atresia and idiopathic neonatal hepatitis are the most common causes of jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia that continue beyond the newborn period. The long term goal of the Biliary...
Biliary Stenting With or Without Photodynamic Therapy in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced, Recurrent, or Metastatic Cholangiocarcinoma or Other Biliary Tract Tumors That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
RATIONALE: Biliary stenting is the placement of a tube in the bile ducts to keep a blocked area open. Photodynamic therapy uses a drug, such as porfimer sodium, that is absorbed by tumor c...
