Right hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm and cystic duct leak after laparoscopic cholecystectomy
S JournéJ Closset
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) seems to be associated with an increased risk of biliary or vascular injuries. Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms (HAP) are rare complications of LC. HAP can occur in the early or late postoperative period. Patients with HAP present with abdominal pain, hemobilia, and liver function test (LFT) alterations. We report the case of a patient who was affected with a cystic duct stump leak associated with a right HAP and was treated by endoscopic biliary drainage and angiographic coil embolization.
Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
