The goal of this clinical research study is to compare methylene blue (an oral rinse) to standard therapy to learn if one is better, the same, or worse than the other in controlling mucosi...
We hypothesized that pre-treatment with methylene blue could potentiate the effects of general anaesthetic agents in patients undergoing parathyroidectomy
A Phase 1 trial to assess the single-dose safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic (PK) of Methylene Blue Injection, USP 1 mg/kg in healthy adult voluneetrs.
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...
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the standard surgical treatment for patients with benign gallbladder disease. However, bile duct injury continues to be reported as a surgical complication. Intraoperat...
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...
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...
Bile duct cancer is a highly aggressive malignancy wherein early diagnosis is difficult and few treatment options are available. MicroRNA-31 (miR-31) is reported to be related with survival in patient...
A compound consisting of dark green crystals or crystalline powder, having a bronze-like luster. Solutions in water or alcohol have a deep blue color. Methylene blue is used as a bacteriologic stain and as an indicator. It inhibits GUANYLATE CYCLASE, and has been used to treat cyanide poisoning and to lower levels of METHEMOGLOBIN.
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.
Passages external to the liver for the conveyance of bile. These include the COMMON BILE DUCT and the common hepatic duct (HEPATIC DUCT, COMMON).
