Management of Biliary Strictures: State-of-the-Art Review.

Biliary strictures can be broadly classified as benign or malignant. Benign biliary strictures are most commonly iatrogenic in nature and are a consequence of hepatobiliary surgery. Cholangiocarcinoma...

Endoscopic management of benign biliary strictures after liver transplantation.

Biliary strictures represent some of the most frequent complications encountered after orthotopic liver transplantation. They comprise an array of biliary abnormalities with variations in anatomical l...

Detection of early-stage extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in patients with biliary strictures by soluble B7-H4 in the bile.

Increasing evidence has demonstrated that serum soluble B7-H4 (sB7-H4) is a useful tumour marker for cancer diagnosis and prognosis evaluation. Whether sB7-H4 is expressed in the bile of cholangiocarc...

EUS-guided antegrade intervention for benign biliary diseases in patients with surgically altered anatomy (with videos).

Although balloon enteroscopy-assisted ERCP (BE-ERCP) is effective and safe for benign biliary diseases in patients with surgically altered anatomy (SAA), BE-ERCP is not always successful. Recently, EU...

Endo-therapies for biliary duct-to-duct anastomotic stricture after liver transplantation: outcomes of a nationwide survey.

The most appropriate endo-therapeutic approach to biliary anastomotic strictures is yet to be defined.

Clinical Trials [2439 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Single-operator Digital Cholangioscopy for the Diagnosis of Malignant and Benign Biliary Strictures

Differentiation between malignant and benign biliary strictures can be challenging. Accurate differentiation of malignant biliary strictures from benign ones is crucial to guide management...

Confocal Endomicroscopy for Biliary Strictures -Phase I

The investigators hypothesize that the confocal endomicroscopy imaging of the biliary strictures during ERCP will differentiate between benign and malignant strictures in vivo and has incr...

Evaluation of the Use of Metal Stents as Part of the Treatment of Benign Biliary Strictures

The purpose of this study is to study the evaluation of the use of metal stents as part of the treatment of benign biliary strictures.

Prospective Evaluation of Winged Biliary Stent Patency in Patients With Benign Biliary Obstruction

Evaluation of ERCP with placement of a winged plastic biliary stent without a lumen for management of benign biliary strictures.

Evaluation of Sequential Stent Addition vs. Incremental Dilation & Stent Exchange for Management of Anastomotic Biliary Strictures After Liver Transplantation

Prospective, randomized comparison of the incremental dilation and stent exchange vs. sequential stent addition approaches for management of anastomotic biliary strictures will facilitate ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.

A benign, autosomally recessive inherited hyperbilirubinemia characterized by the presence of a dark pigment in the centrilobular region of the liver cells. There is a functional defect in biliary excretion of bilirubin, cholephilic dyes, and porphyrins. Affected persons may be asymptomatic or have vague constitutional or gastrointestinal symptoms. The liver may be slightly enlarged, and oral and intravenous cholangiography fails to visualize the biliary tract.
