In this study, investigators will investigate the microbiota of bile in common bile duct stone participants. Three key questions are of concern. The first one is whether there is bacteriri...
The purpose of the study is to determine the best management of bile duct narrowing (stricture) due to inoperable tumors. The bile duct is a tube that carries bile formed in the liver to t...
Pinaverium bromide can be used to treat symptoms related to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and functional disorders of the biliary tract. In this study, pinaverium bromide was compared wit...
Background. X-ray cholangiography has a high sensitivity and specificity of detecting bile duct stones and is the gold standard. There are no studies describing the sensitivity and specifi...
Endoscopic cholangiography is a procedure which is performed to image the bile duct and perform therapy like removal of bile duct stones. It is currently standard of care to remove stones ...
A 65-year-old man was transferred from a secondary hospital after a bile duct stone and a retrieval basket became impacted in the common bile duct (CBD) during an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancre...
Bile duct brushing (BDB) cytology, for the characterization of bile duct strictures, can be challenging to interpret when associated with a stent. Our study aims to identify the cytologic criteria for...
Clonorchiasis is a neglected tropical disease caused by Chinese liver fluke, Clonorchis sinensis infection. C. sinensis is a biological carcinogen causing cholangiocarcinoma in humans. In the mammalia...
Detailed endoscopic findings of the bile duct mucosa have not been fully established. This fundamental ex vivo study assesses the relationship between magnified endoscopic findings and pathological fi...
Although anatomic variations of the bile tract are relatively common and can be present in about 28% of patients, existence of an accessory right hepatic duct that confluence on the common bile duct i...
Diseases in any part of the ductal system of the BILIARY TRACT from the smallest BILE CANALICULI to the largest COMMON BILE DUCT.
Diseases of the COMMON BILE DUCT including the AMPULLA OF VATER and the SPHINCTER OF ODDI.
A congenital anatomic malformation of a bile duct, including cystic dilatation of the extrahepatic bile duct or the large intrahepatic bile duct. Classification is based on the site and type of dilatation. Type I is most common.
The largest bile duct. It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.
The duct that is connected to the GALLBLADDER and allows the emptying of bile into the COMMON BILE DUCT.
