The cholecystocolic bypass with jejunal interposition graft for bile acid depletion in bile and portal blood in guinea pigs

Abstract

Ileal bypass and cholecystostomy are used in children with selected cholestatic diseases to lower the bile acid (BA) levels in bile and blood and improve outcome. The efficacy of a cholecystocolic bypass in achieving the same goals was investigated in guinea pigs. In the study group (n=7), a cholecystocolic bypass was performed using a jejunal graft… (More)
