Abstract Abdominal pain is a common cause for emergency department visits in the United States, and biliary tract disease is the fifth most common cause of hospital admission. Common causes of acute hepatobiliary include gallstones and its associated complications and multiple other hepatobiliary etiologies, including infectious, inflammatory, vascular, and neoplastic causes. Postoperative complications of the biliary tract can result in an acute abdomen. Imaging of the hepatobiliary tree is integral in the diagnostic evaluation of acute hepatobiliary dysfunction, and imaging of the biliary tree requires a multimo...

AbstractGall bladder carcinoma (GBC) is a worldwide problem, with a higher incidence in areas of the world where cholelithiasis is common. As GBC is usually diagnosed in an advanced stage, the mortality is high. An understanding of the molecular pathways of carcinogenesis and the mutations involved in the development and progression of GBC could be useful in early diagnosis. Understanding molecular markers of prognosis as well as predictors of outcome could also potentially benefit patients undergoing treatment. New therapies targeting major molecular pathways and immunotherapy are exciting novel therapeutic options. This ...

ConclusionA neuroendocrine neoplasm of the gallbladder may closely resemble a benign paraganglion. If a NET is suspected, the clinician should be aware of the histopathologic mimicry of a paraganglion prior to initiating additional treatments.

The following report by Zhu et  al introduces to our Western mindset the Chinese cultural desire for gallbladder preservation (via cholecystolithotomy for symptoms). Although not our approach in the West (and perhaps not the most appropriate overall treatment for symptomatic cholelithiasis, as our past experience with gallstone lithotripsy has shown), we need to remain cognizant and respectful of diverse cultural beliefs when we interact with patients from various cultures. After the following submission from China, you will find an account of one of the editor’s naïve, ignorant, and totally enlightening ex...

AbstractIn patients with acute pancreatitis (AP), diagnostic imaging is performed for various reasons, including the detection of the etiology (e.g., biliary obstruction caused by gallstones), diagnosis of pancreatitis in an unclear clinical setting, assessment of the severity of the process, and evaluation of its complications. In spite of the potential benefits of these imaging studies in the setting of AP, especially economic consequences but also medical risks are associated with diagnostic imaging, including increase of the effective radiation dose received by patients with AP and rising health care costs, frequently ...
