Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in the diagnosis of cystic duct syndrome



Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in the diagnosis of cystic duct syndrome



Surgery, Gynecology & Obstetrics 159(3): 217-222



The use of ERCP [endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography] to identify cystic duct syndrome is reported for the first time herein. Nine patients with obscure biliary colic were further investigated with fat meal or CCK (cholecystokinin), cholecystogram or ERCP, or both, to identify the partial obstruction in the cystic duct. Cholecystectomy is curative in this disease. Because .apprx. 1/3 of the patients with disease of the gastrointestinal or biliary tracts or pancreas have 2 of these diseases simultaneously, it is essential that a thorough evaluation both preoperatively and at operation be performed so that a single well designed operation can be performed. ERCP has been helpful in defining the nature and extent of this disease.
