Synchronous Laparoscopic Insertion of Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter and Cholecystectomy in Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease and Gallstones - Our Experience.
This article presents our experience with synchronous laparoscopic cholecystectomy and insertion of a PD catheter. PMID: 31501294 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionWe highlight here the challenge to make the difference between a primary gallbladder carcinoma and metastasis from RCC. Diagnosis is made on pathological examination and immunochemistry.
ConclusionsAcromegaly patients frequently present systemic complications and a diagnostic delay. US features of acromegaly are not specific, but could potentially have a key role in early detection of the disease in the presence of typical clinical features.
Conclusion: This study is the first to assess GB's volume, dimensions, and bile culture in healthy individuals such as LLDs.

This study assessed a national cohort of histopathologically proven gallbladder polyps to distinguish neoplastic from non-neoplastic polyps.MethodsPALGA, the nationwide network and registry of histo- and cytopathology, was searched to identify all histopathologically proven gallbladder polyps between 2003 and 2013. All polyps and (focal) wall thickenings > 5 mm were included, and classified as neoplastic or non-neoplastic. Polyp subtype, size, distribution, presentation as wall thickening or protruding polyp, and presence of gallstones were assessed for neoplastic and non-neoplastic polyps. A decisi...
Conclusion: The results of this study reaffirm that cholelithiasis is a strong predisposing factor for GBCA and females with gallstones in their sixth decade, are more at risk. Although number of stones was not found to be an independent risk factor, patients with stones <3 cm (mostly multiple) were found to be more at risk in our study.
CONCLUSIONS In specific age subgroups of KTRs, the frequency of gallbladder pathologies was higher than in the general population. Prophylactic cholecystectomy may potentially offer benefits in these subgroups of patients. PMID: 30104561 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionEarly recognition of GS by genetic analysis is required before these patients with intermittent episodes of jaundice run the risk of unnecessary operations on their bile ducts from the mistaken assumption ascribing the jaundice to a stone which has been left behind.
Abstract Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory condition of the pancreas manifesting with abdominal pain and elevated serum levels of pancreatic enzymes. Gallstones and chronic alcohol use are the most commonly described causes. A less studied cause is cholesterolosis, gallbladder polyps that cause mechanical obstruction of the sphincter of Oddi. Here, we present the case of a 55-year-old woman who presented with acute pancreatitis and was found to have cholesterol polyps in her gallbladder with no evidence of gallstones. The patient underwent cholecystectomy with complete resolution of her symptoms. PMID: 29904299 [PubMed]
Conclusion Early recognition of GS by genetic analysis is required before these patients with intermittent episodes of jaundice run the risk of unnecessary operations on their bile ducts from the mistaken assumption ascribing the jaundice to a stone which has been left behind.
