Fantin, V. de LastoursSummaryAcute cholangitis is an infection of the bile and biliary tract which in most cases is the consequence of biliary tract obstruction. The two main causes are choledocholithiasis and neoplasia. Clinical diagnosis relies on Charcot's triad (pain, fever, jaundice) but the insufficient sensitivity of the latter led to the introduction in 2007 of a new score validated by the Tokyo Guidelines, which includes biological and radiological data. In case of clinical suspicion, abdominal ul...

This article, dealing with reoperations, should have included all kinds of interventions. Ingmar N äslund, MD, PhD, one of the authors, reported increased admissions for gastrointestinal tract surgery (24.4%), gallstone problems (7.3%), and internal hernia (4.3%) following GBP. The combined aspects would boost reoperations to more than 30%.

AbstractThree patients with gallstone ileus are presented here. All of them were diagnosed on the basis of clinical presentation, endoscopy, and abdominal ultrasonography (USG) findings. We, therefore, propose that presence of the triad, i.e. cholecystoduodenal fistula on endoscopy, diseased gallbladder on USG, and clinical and radiological features of luminal obstruction should point to the diagnosis of gallstone ileus.
