Treatment of Biliary Obstruction Using Biliary Stent With or Without Antireflux Valve

2014-07-23 21:12:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Biliary obstruction can be relieved by biliary stent. Ascending infection of biliary passage (cholangitis) causes hospitalization and obstruction of stents. Reflux of intestinal fluids through a stent is thought to be one of the causes of cholangitis. Stents with antireflux valves are designed to reduce the reflux from the bowel. The purpose of the study is to investigate prospectively whether it is possible to reduce the amount of infection and thus obstruction of biliary stent by using a stent with an antireflux valve compared to a normal stent without an antireflux valve.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Tumors or cancer in the BILIARY TRACT including the BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.

A motility disorder characterized by biliary COLIC, absence of GALLSTONES, and an abnormal GALLBLADDER ejection fraction. It is caused by gallbladder dyskinesia and/or SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION.
