Extrahepatic Cholestasis

Extrahepatic Biliary Obstruction


Presentation

  • We report the case of a 2-day-old female neonate presenting with neonatal cholestasis, nonbilious vomiting with pyloric obstruction, and multiple intestinal atresias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Large amounts of monosulphated bile acid conjugates were present but no disulphates. Only 3-sulphates were found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Transabdominal ultrasonography is the first choice examination used for the etiological diagnosis of extrahepatic cholestasis because it is a noninvasive, rapid method and presently widely accessible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The aim of the present study was to describe the light and electron microscopical localization of ICAM-1 expression in the liver of cholestatic patients. The peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique was used.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present study, the urine from patients with extrahepatic cholestasis (n 25) and age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects (n 25) was analyzed for endogenous LTE4, the predominant metabolite of LTC4 excreted into urine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Chills
  • It is crucial to investigate the presence of fever or shaking chills as this would indicate the presence of cholangitis. Patients who develop cholangitis should be hospitalized immediately.[hepatitis.va.gov]

Jaundice
  • Whereas physiologic jaundice constitutes a common finding in neonates, a few cases present with cholestatic jaundice owing to various pathologic conditions, including extrahepatic biliary obstruction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although in bile duct pathology, and especially in the evaluation of patients with jaundice, transabdominal ultrasonography is the first choice exploration, helicoidal CT, ERCP and MRCP are often required to establish the local cause of jaundice, local[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Whatever the duration of jaundice, the surface density of the smooth endoplasmic reticulum remained in the normal range in all subjects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • On two occasions, administration of the drug was associated with a decrease of jaundice, pruritus, and serum bile acid levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We conclude that it is not necessary to adjust single doses of MCL in patients recovering from obstructive jaundice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hepatomegaly

Scleral Icterus

  • It results in jaundice, which can be detected by scleral icterus at a concentration as low as 2 mg/dL, and by dark urine.[emedicine.medscape.com]
Dark Urine

  • urine Inability to digest certain foods Itching Nausea or vomiting Pain in the right upper part of the abdomen Yellow skin or eyes Blood tests may show that you have elevated bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase.[medlineplus.gov]

Workup

  • Available from: Cholestasis is known as an etiologically diverse clinical entity which requires a broad differential diagnostic workup. [1] Extrahepatic cholestasis, characterized by dilated bile ducts, is caused by either a bile duct stone or stricture[jcytol.org]

Treatment

  • After treatment of 11 patients with cholestasis with drug metabolism-inducing agents (phenobarbital, rifampicin or phenytoin), the half-life of hexobarbital was significantly shortened and the mean value of hexobarbital clearance was more than doubled[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • During the ERC procedure and before withdrawing the tube, the endoscopist provided the final conclusions and carried out appropriate endoscopic treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The aim of treatment is the elimination of the obstruction and, if possible the underlying disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • .), parasitic infestations (fasciola hepatica, ascaris lumbricoides, etc......) and other causes. it is essential to detect the exact cause of extrahepatic cholestasis in order to determine treatment options. diagnosing such conditions depends on clinical[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • The serum bilirubin concentrations were reduced to 20 to 50 per cent of pretreatment values, and the 131 I-Rose Bengal fecal excretion increased during treatment.[nejm.org]

  • Prognosis of cholestasis due to specific disorders (eg, metabolic disease) is variable, ranging from a completely benign course to a progressive disease resulting in cirrhosis.[merckmanuals.com]
  • In addition, measurement of circulating levels of FGF19 or C4, along with Mayo Risk Score, could potentially be used to determine the prognosis of PBC patients.[journals.plos.org]
  • EVOLUTION AND MATERNAL PROGNOSIS The prognosis for the mother is generally good. A considerable discomfort for the patient can appear if pruritus is severe and generalized.[tmj.ro]

Pathophysiology

  • References: [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] Pathophysiology Jaundice is due to an elevated level of serum bilirubin, which may be caused by prehepatic, intrahepatic, or posthepatic defects.[amboss.com]

Prevention

  • The present results show that, if GGT inhibition by bilirubin did occur, this inhibition was not sufficient to prevent the increase in serum GGT levels and that the sensitivity of GGT as a marker for CEHC is similar to that of alkaline phosphatase.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
