Of the 187 cases of infantile choledochal cyst treated at our hospitals, we encountered 13 with spontaneous perforation. All cases were under 4 years old. Eight cases were found to have biliary peritonitis and 5 had a sealed perforation. The shape of the extrahepatic bile duct was cystic in 8 and fusiform in 5. The cyst wall around the perforation was filmy(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to elucidate the epidemiology and short- and long-term results of biliary atresia in Japan analyzing the data of the Japanese Biliary Atresia Registry (JBAR). METHODS In 1989, the Japanese Biliary Atresia Society started a nationwide registry, JBAR, to investigate all aspects of biliary atresia. A total of 1,381 patients,(More)
Recent experimental studies in mice have shown that the proto-oncogene c-kit plays a key role in the development of a component of the pacemaker system that is required for generation of autonomic gut motility. These studies further suggest that interaction of the c-kit receptor and its ligand (stem cell factor, SCF) is critical for the development of the(More)
Choledochal cysts are a relatively rare abnormality in the West but are more common in the East. The etiology of choledochal cysts remains unknown. Recently, the incidence in neonates and young infants has been increasing due to advances in diagnostic imaging, including antenatal diagnosis. Choledochal cysts can present at any age, but the clinical(More)
We reviewed our experience of Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy (RYHJ) and hepaticoduodenostomy (HD) performed for the surgical repair of choledochal cyst (CC), with special emphasis on postoperative complications related to the type of biliary reconstruction performed. Eighty-six patients underwent primary cyst excision for CC from 1986 to 2002 at our(More)
The aim of this study was to review the cases 200 children and 40 adults who had cyst excision combined with hepaticoenterostomy (CEHE) for choledochal cyst, with particular emphasis on post-CEHE complications and their surgical management. Patients who had CEHE at the age of 15 years or less were defined as children, and those aged 16 years or older were(More)
PURPOSE The authors used ultrasonographic endoprobes during laparoscopy-assisted colon pull-through (LACPT) for the repair of high imperforate anus to confirm the pull-through canal was surrounded symmetrically by pelvic floor muscles. METHODS Six patients with high imperforate anus were treated by LACPT (mean age at LACPT, 8.2 months). An endoscopic(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are c-KIT positive neoplasm that occur predominantly in adults. A 13-year-old boy who presented with massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage was subsequently diagnosed with GIST of the stomach. The tumor originated from the lesser curvature with a narrow base and no infiltration into surrounding organs. Two metastatic(More)
We used the fast field-echo technique of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with an intravenous bolus injection of paramagnetic contrast agent to evaluate glomerular function. The time-dependent curves of changes in signal intensity observed in the renal cortex and renal medulla brought about by the paramagnetic contrast agent allowed insight into excretory(More)
