Xanthogranulomatous Cholecystitis (XGC) is an uncommon inflammatory condition of gall bladder, which is often misdiagnosed as malignancy preoperatively, leading to extensive surgical resections which may not be necessary for the patient. Ducts of Luschka are a rare developmental variant of the biliary tree, which are prone to injury and bile leak d...

Mild intrahepatic biliary dilation in the setting of cholecystectomy is very common, and if not associated with clinical or biochemical evidence of obstruction is likely of no clinical significance.

The persistent elevation of Ca 19-9 is probably due to the presence of multiple benign diseases such as steatosis, urolithiasis, hepatic and renal cysts, and cholecystitis. An algorithm is needed for healthy patients with elevated levels of Ca 19-9 marker, in order to lower costs, avoid misdiagnoses, and improve management.

Increased use of advanced imaging modalities was accompanied by increased curative-intent surgery. Compared with patients in whom surgery was aborted, patients who underwent surgical palliation demonstrated an increased incidence of postoperative morbidity with comparable survival.

The expression of proteins related to tissue healing in BBS is different after treatment with biodegradable stents and CSEMS. Treatment with biodegradable stents may bring protein expression towards what is seen in intact BD. BDBS seem to have a good biocompatibility.

The results motivate biological testing and design optimization.
Background: There are no data on surgical outcomes of major gastrointestinal cancer resections in the expanding Indian oncogeriatric population. Methods: A prospective database of patients who underwent major gastrointestinal cancer resections during varying time periods (2006-2014) was analyzed retrospectively. Results: Two thousand six hundred an...

Accurate preoperative biliary mapping can be achieved on CE MRC reconstructed from Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MR images. The diagnostic performance was better on CE MRC reconstructed from coronal than those from transverse images.

Antenatal laparoscopic cholecystectomy demonstrated comparably safe outcomes. Increasing its utilization to manage symptomatic cholelithiasis during pregnancy may be considered.

Biliary complications are being increasingly encountered in post liver transplant patients because of increased volume of transplants and longer survival of these recipients. Overall management of these complications may be challenging, but with advances in endoscopic techniques, majority of such patients are being dealt with by endoscopists rather...
