Diagnostic Yield of Newborn Screening for Biliary Atresia Using Direct or Conjugated Bilirubin Measurements.

Treating biliary atresia in newborns earlier can delay or prevent the need for liver transplant; however, treatment typically occurs later because biliary atresia is difficult to detect during its ear...

Correctable biliary atresia and cholangiocarcinoma: a case report of a 63-year-old patient.

Although cancer occurrence following surgery for biliary atresia has gradually increased, the development of cholangiocarcinoma in a native liver survivor of biliary atresia is extremely rare.

Can Free Carnitine or Bilirubin in Blood Be Used in Neonatal Screening for Biliary Atresia?

 To investigate the efficiency of free carnitine, unconjugated bilirubin (UBIL), bilirubin monoglucuronide (BMG), and bilirubin diglucuronide (BDG) in dry blood spots (DBSs) measured using tandem ma...

Hepatic expression of HGF/C-met and native liver survival in biliary atresia.

The prognosis of biliary atresia (BA) remains difficult to predict. This study evaluated the roles of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and its receptor (C-met) towards clinical outcome and native liver ...

A Morphology-based Analysis of Biliary Ductules After Kasai Procedure and a Review of the Literature.

To explore the distribution of biliary ductules in biliary remnants of patients with biliary atresia and to investigate the relationship between the ductules and the prognosis after Kasai portoenteros...

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 ...

Development and Validation of a Screening Score for the Biliary Atresia in Infantile Cholestasis: A Prospective Study

Better survival and prognosis of biliary atresia (BA) depend on early diagnosis and timely Kasai portoenterostomy. Identifying BA from other causes of infantile cholestasis at early stage ...

Dry Blood Spot Screening Test for Biliary Atresia(DBS-SCReBA)

Intestinal Microbiome Composition in Infants With Biliary Atresia (BA)

RCT of Steroids Following Kasai Portoenterostomy for Biliary Atresia.

Biliary atresia is a congenital disorder of bile duct development or destruction of established but immature bile ducts. The study tests the hypothesis that post-operative steroids improv...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Progressive destruction or the absence of all or part of the extrahepatic BILE DUCTS, resulting in the complete obstruction of BILE flow. Usually, biliary atresia is found in infants and accounts for one third of the neonatal cholestatic JAUNDICE.

Operation for biliary atresia by anastomosis of the bile ducts into the jejunum or duodenum.

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.
