AbstractHyperbilirubinemia is a common occurrence in neonates; it may be physiological or pathological. Conjugated hyperbilirubinemia may result from medical or surgical causes, and can result in irreversible liver damage if untreated. The aim of imaging is the timely diagnosis of surgical conditions like biliary atresia and choledochal cysts. Abdominal ultrasound is the first line imaging modality, and Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) also has a role, especially in pre-operative assessment of choledochal cysts (CDCs). For biliary atresia, the triangular cord sign and gallbladder abnormalities are the two...

Introduction: Early cholecystectomy shortly after admission for mild gallstone pancreatitis has been proposed based on observational data. We hypothesized that cholecystectomy within 24 hours of admission versus after clinical resolution of gallstone pancreatitis that is predicted to be mild results in decreased length-of-stay (LOS) without an increase in complications. Methods: Adults with predicted mild gallstone pancreatitis were randomized to cholecystectomy with cholangiogram within 24 hours of presentation (early group) versus after clinical resolution (control) based on abdominal exam and normalized laborat...

Cholelithiasis, the presence of gallstones in the gallbladder or ducts, is a prevalent human disease with a high socioeconomic burden. Mu ñoz and colleagues demonstrate that the formation of neutrophil extracellular traps fosters the generation and growth of gallstones.

The objective of this study was to determine whether ICP is associated with specific long ‐term comorbidity.Material and methodsThe study population comprised 571 women with ICP in at least one pregnancy who were compared with 1333 pregnant women without ICP during 1969 ‐1988 at Tampere University Hospital, Finland. The cohort's follow‐up time was 44 years. All ICD‐10 classification discharge diagnoses were examined for the women in the ICP group from 1998 to 2013 and ICD‐10 diagnoses from outpatient care from 1969 to 2013.ResultsAt least one disease of the digestive system had been diagnosed in 50.4% (288/5...

Conclusion: The present study confirmed that a novel mutation in ANK1 may be causative of HS, which plays an important role in expanding the mutational spectrum of ANK1 mutations. This may contribute to accurate genetic counselling. And it is helpful for understanding the correlation of the genotype and phenotype. PMID: 31390973 [PubMed - in process]
