    Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is considered the first-approach for biliary drainage. In cases of ERCP failure, patients are usually referred for percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage or surgical biliary bypass. In the last decade, the indications of endoscopic...

    A total of 70 cases of cholestatic jaundice have been studied by gray scale ultrasonography in order to evaluate how this technic may be used to differentiate between intra- and extrahepatic cholestasis. In 37 out of 42 patients (88.1% ) with jaundice of extrahepatic origin, dilatation of the...

    The levels of DU-PAN-2 antigen, carcinoembryonic antigen, and CA 19-9 in serum and bile of patients with pancreatic and biliary tract diseases were measured. The sensitivities (true positive) of DU-PAN-2 in serum to pancreatic carcinoma (64%) and to biliary tract carcinoma (62%) were similar to...

    CA 19-9 is the most sensitive and specific marker currently used in the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Its interpretation, however, can be limited in the presence of certain nonmalignant diseases that have been correlated with elevated serum levels of CA 19-9. We report an unusual case of...

    Background. Recent diagnostic imaging tests contribute to improving the diagnosis of pancreatobiliary cancers. However, it is not practical to perform these tests for all patients as screening. Thus, less-invasive and simple screening tests are still required. A method to detect the IgG antibody...
