Disease relevance of Hepatic Duct, Common


High impact information on Hepatic Duct, Common

  • The response of the common hepatic duct to an intravenous injection of sincalide (0.04 mcg/kg over 1 min) was assessed in 15 healthy volunteers [6].
  • RESULTS: LUS visualized the CBD in 99 per cent of patients and the common hepatic duct in 92 per cent [7].
  • RPC causing hepatic duct calculi is possibly an aftermath of recurrent biliary invasion in such areas [8].
  • Reflux to the hepatic duct after cerulein injection was found in 6 of 20 (30%) examined patients with CP and more frequently in ADP, whereas there was no reflux in MIP and normals [9].
  • The purpose of the present study was to compare survival data in patients with malignant hilar obstruction, stratified according to the Bismuth classification, who had cholangiography with filling of one or both hepatic ducts and subsequently endoscopic or percutaneous drainage of one or both ducts [10].

Anatomical context of Hepatic Duct, Common

  • It is concluded that, in normal subjects, there is no significant change in the internal diameter of the common hepatic duct in response to an intravenous dose of sincalide sufficient to effect gallbladder contraction [6].
  • CRP protein is similarly found in the lumenal aspect of epithelial cells lining the pancreatic duct system and the larger hepatic ducts [11].
  • A PTCD tube had been inserted from the right anterior segmental duct and direct cholangiograms showed complete obstruction of the bile duct at the confluence of the right and left hepatic ducts [12].
  • The preoperative percutaneous placement of Ring catheters into the right and left hepatic ducts has proved to be a useful technical aide in the operative management of patients with lesions of the proximal part of the biliary tract [13].
  • Portal vein and hepatic duct reconstructions were by the cuff technique, and supra- and intrahepatic vena cava were sutured continuously [14].

Associations of Hepatic Duct, Common with chemical compounds


Gene context of Hepatic Duct, Common

  • CRP-ductin: a gene expressed in intestinal crypts and in pancreatic and hepatic ducts [11].
  • Extrarenal manifestations of the cpk gene are evident in the CD1 strain and include cysts of pancreatic, common bile, and major hepatic ducts [20].
  • We have reviewed a consecutive series of 151 patients with Type II and III HBO over a 4-year period to compare the outcome of endoprosthesis placement in either the right (RHD) or left (LHD) hepatic duct, to test this hypothesis [21].
  • LCP showed the common and hepatic ducts more clearly than MCCP [22].
  • The mean diameter of the donor common hepatic duct increased from 5.5 +/- 2.1 mm to 6.3 +/- 2.4 mm (p = .015) [23].
