Gene context of Cystic Duct

  • We report a very rare case of what appeared to be mucin-producing carcinoma of the cystic duct, and this is the forth case recorded in the English-language and Japanese literature [22].
  • CCK-induced cystic duct spasm is the etiology for low EF in both CAC and CCC [23].
  • RESULTS: Twelve complications consisting of six common bile duct transection/excisions (CBDTE), one CBD leak/stricture (CBDLS), and five cystic duct leaks (CDL) were identified and matched to a control group (having an uncomplicated LC) for age, sex, and institution where the LC had been completed [24].
  • This gallbladder enlargement may be due to cystic duct hypoplasia or atresia, which has been reported in association with alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency [25].
  • BACKGROUND: The efficacy and applicability of an absorbable polydioxanone (PDS) clip for cystic duct ligation were evaluated in 297 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy [26].
