Bacteremia in relation to intrabiliary pressure in proximal v. distal malignant biliary obstruction.

Abstract

Ten patients with proximal malignant biliary obstruction (group A) and ten with distal malignant biliary obstruction (group B) who underwent surgery in 1983-1984 were prospectively studied as regards incidence of bacteremia and its relationship with intrabiliary pressure. The patients with proximal obstruction had higher intrabiliary pressure, associated… (More)
