Clinicopathologic review of 58 patients with biliary papillomatosis
TLDR
The authors retrospectively analyzed their clinicopathologic features and long‐term follow-up results on biliary papillomatosis to determine its clinical features and outcome.
Diagnostic criteria for autoimmune chronic pancreatitis revisited.
TLDR
There are several potential limitations of current diagnostic criteria for this increasingly recognized condition and the need for convening a consensus to develop improved diagnostic criteria is emphasized.
Clinical Role of 18F-FDG PET-CT in Suspected and Potentially Operable Cholangiocarcinoma: A Prospective Study Compared With Conventional Imaging
TLDR
PET-CT improved the accuracy of preoperative staging in patients with cholangiocarcinoma planning to undergo curative resection, and had an important clinical impact on the selection of proper treatment.
Efficacy of endoscopic and percutaneous treatments for biliary complications after cadaveric and living donor liver transplantation.
TLDR
Transpapillary endoscopic and percutaneous transhepatic radiologic interventions are both effective therapies for biliary complications associated with liver transplantation and are complementary approaches that help to avoid surgery for these complications.
Hepatitis B Virus Infection and Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma in Korea: A Case-Control Study
TLDR
The results indicate that development of ICC seems to be more closely related to HBV infection than to HCV infection in Korea, where both HBV and ICC are endemic.
EUS‐Guided Biliary Drainage Versus ERCP for the Primary Palliation of Malignant Biliary Obstruction: A Multicenter Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Substantially longer duration of patency coupled with lower rates of adverse events and reintervention, and more preserved QOL were observed with EUS‐BD, which was associated with more preserved quality of life (QOL) than transpapillary stenting after 12 weeks of the procedure.
Autoimmune Chronic Pancreatitis
TLDR
Clinical, laboratory, histologic, and imaging findings that are seen in patients with autoimmune chronic pancreatitis are discussed, especially focusing on the diagnosis.
Single-center experience of laparoscopic left pancreatic resection in 359 consecutive patients: changing the surgical paradigm of left pancreatic resection
TLDR
The increased use of LDP for left-sided pancreatic lesions, including malignant lesions, represents a paradigm shift from open distal pancreatectomy.
Substitution of aspartic acid at position 57 of the DQbeta1 affects relapse of autoimmune pancreatitis.
TLDR
Substitution of aspartic acid to nonaspartic Acid at DQbeta1 57 appears to represent a key genetic factor for relapse of AIP.
Ectopic opening of the common bile duct in the duodenal bulb: clinical implications.
TLDR
Although these openings are rare, knowledge of the endoscopic and radiographic findings of an ectopic opening of the common bile duct in the duodenal bulb may help to clarify the cause of chronic recurrent duodanal ulcer disease in some patients and prevent damage to the biliary duct during surgery.
