    Abstract:

    Bile Leakage is an infrequent but serious complication after biliary tract surgery. This non-randomised single centre study evaluated the endoscopic management of this problem in 55 consecutive cases. Treatment consisted of standard sphincterotomy and, if needed, subsequent stone extraction with or without endoprosthesis placement. The aim of all treatments was to facilitate Bile flow into the duodenum. The biliary tract and the site of the Leakage were visualised during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in 98%. There was distal obstruction in 33–caused by retained gall stones in 15 patients and concomitant strictures in 18. Overall, 48 of 55 patients were treated endoscopically. An excellent outcome (clinical and radiological resolution of the Bile leak) was achieved in 43 patients (90%). Five patients (10%) had continuing sepsis from which they died. Postoperative Bile Leakage can be diagnosed safely and effectively by ERCP and subsequent endoscopic management is successful in most cases.

    Abstract:

    Hypothesis An intraoperative Bile Leakage test will assist in decreasing postoperative Bile Leakage in patients undergoing hepatic resection. Design Randomized controlled trial. Setting University hospital. Patients One hundred three consecutive patients who were scheduled for hepatic resection without biliary reconstruction. Associated cirrhosis was present in 49 patients (48%), and only 24 (23%) had normal livers. Patients were randomized to undergo (n = 51) or to not undergo (n = 52) a Bile Leakage test, according to age, liver function, and hepatectomy method. The 2 groups were similar in baseline demographics. Intervention A Bile Leakage test was carried out by injecting isotonic sodium chloride solution through the cystic duct, and interrupted suturing was taken for a Bile leak on the transected liver surface. Main Outcome Measures The incidence of postoperative Bile Leakage and the length of the postoperative hospital stay. Bile Leakage was defined as continuous drainage, with a bilirubin level of 86 µmol/L or more (≥5 mg/dL), beyond 1 week. Results Twenty-one patients (41%) in the test group showed a Bile leak, and a median of 1 site (range, 1-6 sites) was closed during the test. Postoperative Bile Leakage was observed in 3 patients (6%) in the test group and in 2 (4%) in the control group ( P = .99). The odds ratio of the event was 1.53 (95% confidence interval, 0.25-9.44). The median postoperative hospital stay lasted 17 (range, 13-47) and 18 (range, 12-41) days for the test and control groups, respectively ( P = .98). Conclusion This randomized trial suggested no advantage in using a Bile Leakage test during hepatic resection.
