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 the small bowel to digest fats. Tumors around the bile duct can compress the duct causing pain, jaundice (yellow skin and eyes), itchy skin and fever.
The purpose of this prospective, randomized multicenter study is to determine whether there is any difference in stent patency of covered metallic stents in terms of stent positioning, above and across the sphincter of Oddi, in malignant bile duct obstruction.
In this study, we hope to evaluate the safety of PDT using temoporfin plus endoscopic stents in patients with inoperable bile duct cancers. In addition as a preliminary study we sought to determine if the treatment can reduce tumor volume in the short term.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether morbidity and mortality for high-risk surgical patients treated with the Carotid Wallstent in conjunction with the FilterWire EX and EZ System distal protection device will be less than or equal to that of objective performance criteria (OPC) derived from historic controls undergoing surgical intervention with a carotid endarterectomy (CEA).
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 bacteriria in bile in participants without common bile duct stone. The second one is whether the microbiota of bile is similar with that of gut mucosa in common bile duct stone participants. The third one is whether the bacteria in bile of common bile participants with intact papillar is the same as th...
This study compares the 6 mm nitinol Zilver biliary endoprostheses and the 10 mm nitinol Zilver biliary endoprostheses to the 10 mm Wallstent in appropriate patients in need of palliative treatment of malignant obstructive jaundice.
This is a a prospective study of the WallFlex™ Biliary Partially-covered Stent designed to collect data to support regulatory clearance by the FDA in the United States and to determine the functionality of the WallFlex™ Biliary Partially Covered Stent as a Palliative treatment for malignant bile duct obstruction.
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 specificity of IFC for bile duct stone detection. Research question. What is the sensitivity of IFC to visualize bile duct stones? Method. Prospective study with 40 patients undergoing planned laparoscopic cholecystectomy with preoperative magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) (gold sta...
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 from the bile duct when found as they frequently cause complications like infections which can sometime be life threatening. Therapy on the biliary tree, like for example stone removal, frequently requires inserting tools through the opening of the duct and cutting of the muscle which control...
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 with Vitamin C for the facilitation of bile duct cannulation in patients. The primary outcome was successful deep bile duct cannulation. The second outcome was the major papillary orifice, bile juice flow from the papilla, time to achieve deep bile duct cannulation, and fluoroscopy time for deep ...
Bile duct stones is a common biliary tract disease, which is characterized by high morbidity and frequent recurrence. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is an effective therapy for common bile duct stones, and endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) which associated with recurrent cholangiolithiasis often carried out on difficult intubation or extracting stones, probably due to enhanced reflux of intestinal contents that changes the microenvironment. Patients with ch...
The purpose of this study is to compare the duration of stent patency between partially covered and fully covered SEMS for palliation of malignant distal bile duct obstruction.
The aim of the trial is to compare two operations which are used to treat bile duct stones. The hypothesis of the study is that there is no difference between endoscopic sphincterotomy followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy or laparoscopic bile duct exploration during laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the treatment of bile duct stones in higher risk patients.
Bile leak reduction from the common bile duct, as a result of glue appliance after cholangiotomy.
Patients with gallstone and confirmed common bile duct stones are registered in this study. The three managements for common bile duct stones are endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST), laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) and laparoscopic transcystic common bile duct exploration (LTCBDE). Patients will be assessed at baseline, preoperative investigations, operative method, operative time, conversion to open procedure, intraoperative and postoperative complications, and t...
Gallstone disease affects over 20 million Americans. Among patients with gallbladder disease, the prevalence of choledocholithiasis (stones in the bile duct) is estimated to be 10-20%. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is considered the standard of care for removing stones in the bile duct utilizing a variety of conventional methods including biliary sphincterotomy, sphincteroplasty, extraction balloon, retrieval basket, and mechanical lithotripsy. After rem...
RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses light and drugs that make cancer cells more sensitive to light to kill tumor cells. This may be effective treatment for cancer of the bile duct, gallbladder, or pancreas. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to determine the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy in treating patients who have cancer of the bile duct, gallbladder, or pancreas.
The purpose of this study is to assess efficacy and safety of Foscan (temoporfin) photodynamic therapy in the treatment of locally advanced perihilar bile duct carcinoma without distant metastases.
This study aim to evaluated the effectiveness of Digital SpyGlass Cholangioscopy to facilitate common bile duct stone removal without fluoroscopy
Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS) have been increasingly used for the treatment of complications of portal hypertension in patients with cirrhosis. The initial experiment of the TIPS was reported during the 1990s with stents of various brands, manufacture and sizes, but all "non covered", thus owing the pseudointimal hyperplasia growing inside the stent, which progressively decreases the diameter of the shunt and thus its efficacy. Since the beginning of th...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to determine whether the combination of the established chemotherapeutic agent 5-fluorouracil(5-FU) and the large carbohydrate molecule DAVANAT is beneficial in treating advanced gall bladder and bile duct cancer.
Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a new palliation therapy for malignant bile duct obstruction. It delivers a high amount of thermal energy to target tissue and may prolong the duration of stent patency. RFA has showed promising results for malignant bile duct obstruction and increasing the duration of stent patency. The aim of our study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of endoscopic RFA for the treatment of bile duct obstructions, and to compare the efficac...
This study compare 2 techniques to treat difficult bile duct stones endoscopically
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has become one of the most important techniques in the treatment of bile duct stones. A number of studies have been conducted using large-balloon dilation (LBD) after adequate EST to extract large bile duct stones. In those studies, the authors suggested that EST plus LBD might lower the risk of post procedure pancreatitis (PEP) by directing balloon dilation toward the bile duct rather than the pancreatic duct. It has been r...
The purpose of this study is to test an investigational combination of drugs for bile duct or gallbladder cancers. Gemcitabine and cisplatin are two forms of chemotherapy commonly used in combination to treat bile duct and gallbladder cancers. We are looking to improve treatment results. We will attempt to do so by adding sorafenib (a type of monoclonal antibody) to your treatment plan. Sorafenib acts by attaching to blocking specific targets on cells. These targets may ...
