introduction
INTRODUCTION

Open cholecystectomy was the standard practıce for treartment of symptomatıc gallbladder dısease untıl later 1980

At present more than 90% of cholecystectomıes are performed by laparoscopy whıch become one of the commonest surgıcal procedure ın the world.

Unfortunately the wıdespread used of laparoscopy has lead to a concurrence rıse ın the ıncıdence of major bıle duct ınjury(BDI)

slide3
Complications of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy :A National Survey of 4,292 Hospitals and an Analysis of 77,604 Cases

Deziel D J et al Chicago Illinois - Am J of Surg 165 January 1993

  • 1.750 respondents
  • 1.2% laparotomy for treatment of complications
  • 0.6% mean rate of bile duct injury (exclusive of cystic duct), that will be lowered after performing > 100 LC
  • 50% of bile duct injury was recognized postoperatively, required anastomotic repair
  • 33 pts died, 18 of them due to operative injury
  • 0.14% bowel injuries
  • 0.25% vascular injuries

Most lethal complications

Bılıary ınjury durıng cholecystectomy

OC :has been associated wıth 0.2%-0.4% risk of BDI.

ON THE OTHER HAND (LC): has been associated with 2.5 fold to 4 folds increase in the incidence of post operative BDI.

in 1990 high rate of BDI ıs due to in part to learnıng curve effect .

A surgeon had ı.7% chance of BDI ın the first case a 0.17%chance of BDI after the 50th case.

However,most surgeon passed through the learning curve (steady state)

bile duct injury i
BILE DUCT INJURY (I)
  • Any injury to the bile duct during cholecystectomy is a dreaded complication.
  • Major bile duct injuries may require biliary-enteric reconstruction
  • Many patients, their consultants, and their lawyers believe these treatments result in a lifetime of disability

(Maraca R.J et al : Arch Surge 2003, 137:889-894)

bile duct injury 2
BILE DUCT INJURY (2)
  • The occurrence of an accidental bile duct injury strikes the patient and surgeons with great force, as neither is prepared for this complication
  • Often the surgeons is not immediately aware of disaster, and a delayed diagnosis adds further difficulty to the potentially disturbed relationship between doctor and patient.

(Gouma DJ and Obertrop H : BJS 2002,89,385-386)

the problem
The Problem
  • LChas been associated with a higher incidence of IA bile duct injuries
      • LC—0.4 to 0.8%
      • Traditional OC—0.2-0.4%
  • Association:
      • Increased mortality and morbidity
      • Reduced long-term survival
      • Reduced quality of life
    • Between 34% and 49% of surgeons are expected to cause such an injury during their career.
    • Awareness and preventative methods are of clinical importance to surgeons.

Risk Factors and Mechanism
  • Risk Factors
      • Surgeon related rısk factors
      • Lack of experıence
      • Mısıdentıfıcatıon of bılıary anatomy

mechanism of injury
Mechanism of injury
  • Initially…Surgeon’s Learning Curve –Steady
  • Anatomical Misidentification: excision, incision, or transection of biliary anatomy
      • Injuries: common bile duct, common hepatic duct, right and left hepatic ducts, right hepatic artery, ducts draining hepatic segments
      • Anatomical variations (biliary and vasculature)
  • Electro cautery, thermal injury: stricture of CBD or hepatic ducts, bile leak
  • Mechanical trauma: stricture of the biliary ducts, bile leaks
  • Improper surgical approach
slide15

Misidentification injuries 2 main types ;

  • 1-CBD is mistaken for cystic duct so is clipped and divided.
  • 2-The segment of an aberrant right hepatic duct at the junction of cystic duct and CHD is mistaken for cystic duct

thermal injuries
Thermal Injuries
  • Inappropriate use of electro cautery near biliary ducts
  • May lead to stricture and/or bile leaks
  • Mechanical trauma can have similar effects

duct stump of >2 cm

2Proximal CHD stricture-hepatic duct stump <2 cm

3 Hilar stricture, no residual CHD, but the hepatic ductal

confluence is preserved

4Hilar stricture, with involvement of confluence and loss of communication between right and left hepatic duct

slide35

About 25% of BDI discovered ıntra-operatıvely.

About 25% of BDI dıscovered after 24-48 hs post-operatıvely.

And about 50% of BDI present weeks ,months or years post operatıvely

clinical presentation
CLINICAL PRESENTATION
  • Many injuries are unrecognizedd at the time of the initial operation, and their presentation will vary
  • Those with associated bile leak will present early and often acutely ill from bile peritonitis or sub-hepatic abscess
clinical presentaion cont
CLINICAL PRESENTAION….CONT
  • Those with an injury but not leak, usually develop jaundice sometime after discharge from hospital, depending of the nature of the injury
  • Some injuries evolve slowly or cause partial obstruction
  • Stricture may involve principally the right or left hepatic duct or one of the right sectorial hepatic ducts
bile leak is recognized earlier
BILE LEAK IS RECOGNIZED EARLIER

Presentation:

  • Acutely ill
  • Gut failure

Warko karnadihardja- 2004

intraoperative detection
Intraoperative Detection
  • Only 25% of injures are recognized intraoperatively
  • If experienced, convert to Open Procedure and perform Cholangiography (determine extent of injury)
  • If not experienced, perform the cholangiogram laparoscopically with intent of referring patient (placement of drains)
  • Consult an experienced hepatobiliarysurgeon.

Quicker the repair, the better the outcome!!!

post operative detection plan
Post-Operative Detection Plan
  • Controlling sepsis, establish biliary drainage,
  • Broad-spectrum antibiotics.
  • No need for urgent reconstruction of the biliary tree.
  • Reconstruction of the biliary tract is best performed electively after an interval of at least 6 to 8 weeks.
tips tricks to diagnose bile duct injury
TIPS & TRICKS TO DIAGNOSE BILE DUCT INJURY

History of unexplained fevers, pain, abnormal liver function test results, or pruritus

Should prompt an investigation

types of imaging investigation
TYPES OF IMAGING INVESTIGATION
  • Ultrasonography :
  • May reveal the :
    • ductal dilatation and or fluid collection(biloma
    • Of little value if bile ducts are decompressed
types of imaging investigation 2
TYPES OF IMAGING INVESTIGATION (2)
  • Cholangiography
    • PTC is superior to ERCP
    • MRCP : Noninvasive, provides striking images of biliary tree
  • HIDA scan ; may show presence of active bile leak and general anatomic site of leakage.
slide44

MRC ;

  • Demonstrating dilatation or stenosis of the biliary tract; and stones in the bile duct remnant; the pancreas; and pancreatic duct;
  • However it doesn’t allow concomitant therapeutic measures.
slide45

ERCP; PTC

  • Can provide an exact anatomical diagnosis of bile duct leak.
  • Allowing for treatment of the leak by appropriate decompression of the biliary tract
types of imaging investigation1
TYPES OF IMAGING INVESTIGATION
  • Contrast-enhanced CT
    • The best initial study
    • May define level of injury, fluid collection or ascites
    • Reveal lobar atrophy
    • For vascular ınjury; CT –angıography, MR -angıography
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Bile duct injury during cholecystectomy, either laparoscopic or open, is a complex and a dreaded complication
  • The proximal bile duct is at greater risk for injury in laparoscopic surgery and may require biliary-enteric reconstruction
  • Early recognition, good surgical technique;

adequate multidisciplinary approach in a tertiary care center are the cornerstones for good outtcome.
