Biliary-enteric anastomosis (BEA) is a common surgical procedure performed for the management of biliary obstruction or leakage that results. Postoperative bilioenteric anastomotic strictures are encountered in a significant number of patients after primary biliary repair, hepatopancreaticobiliary tumor. access to the bilioenteric anastomosis and thus to the hepatobiliary tree for non- operative management of chronic and recurrent biliary tract.

Catheter-based upsizing Some protocols use sequential stricture dilation with catheters, rather than balloon inflation, as the main mechanism of treatment. Current protocols for percutaneous treatment of BAS are varied in their technique and success rates. December 6, ; Revised: Transhepatic dilatation of choledochoenterostomy strictures. A Cholangiogram demonstrates a biliary stricture at the hepaticojejunostomy anastomosus to balloon dilation. The stent covering limits potential mucosal ingrowth and hyperplasia, factors which lead to occlusion and difficult retrieval in uncovered metallic stents.

Transhepatic dilation of anastomotic biliary strictures in liver transplant recipients with use of a combined cutting and conventional balloon protocol: The novel use of a biodegradable stent placed by percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography for the treatment of a hepaticojejunostomy biliary leak following an extended left hepatectomy and pancreaticoduodenectomy.

The balloon dilatation and large profile catheter maintenance method for the management of the bile duct stricture following liver transplantation. Due to the considerable fibrosis associated with anastomotic strictures, initial dilation is often difficult.

However, multiple emerging techniques including the use of cutting balloons, retrievable stents, biodegradable stents, and drug-eluting stents have shown early bililenterica, and should become valuable additions to the percutaneous dilation toolbox.

A History of the Bilioenteric Anastomosis

As with dilation procedures elsewhere in the body, high-pressure low-compliance balloons are typically used for biliary stricture dilation. Current strategies and future directions. Subsequent dilations and catheter exchanges can usually be performed on an outpatient basis.

Most of the recent series conducting balloon dilations are able to effectively treat patients using moderate sedation with intravenous midazolam and fentanyl as for most interventional procedures. Minor complications related to percutaneous biliary interventions commonly include post-dilation fever and chills, tube displacement, pericatheter leakage, and gallstones.

Biodegradable biliary stent implantation in the treatment of benign bilioplastic-refractory biliary strictures: The catheter was subsequently removed.


The medical charts of patients with biliary complications after OLT during a year periodwho failed to respond to nonsurgical treatment and were surgically treated, were reviewed.

In situations when this approach is unusable, techniques for percutaneous stent retrieval also exist. This consists of removal of catheter access across the stricture placement of a small caliber external biliary drain. At our institution, daily flushing of the catheter with 10 mL of normal saline is used to ensure continued catheter patency. Purchase access Subscribe now.

Segments IV and V were partially removed after cutting the bilieonterica plate, thus obtaining healthy ducts without ischemic or inflammatory reaction and allowing a wide hepatojejunostomy. Should the patient remain asymptomatic for the treatment period, the catheter can be removed, either in clinic or after a final follow-up cholangiogram. Cutting balloons have become increasingly used in the context of benign biliary strictures, especially when strictures prove refractory to dilation with conventional angioplasty balloons.
