Abstract null null Background null Delayed biliary strictures (DBS) after cholecystectomy are uncommon and little is known of their aetiology or long-term consequences. The aims of this study were to investigate the clinical and economic impact of DBS after cholecystectomy. null null null Methods null Patients who developed DBS after cholecystectomy were identified from a prospectively collected and maintained database. Risk factors for stricture development, quality of life (QoL) and long-term ...

Abstract null null Background null After major bile duct injury, hepaticojejunostomy can result in good long-term patency, but anastomotic stricture is a common cause of long-term morbidity. There is a need to assimilate high-level evidence to establish risk factors for development of anastomotic stricture after hepaticojejunostomy for bile duct injury. null null null Methods null A systematic review of studies reporting the rate of anastomotic stricture after hepaticojejunostomy for bile duct i...

Historically, minimal significance has been given to the humoral immune response after liver transplantation and, despite antibodies against HLA antigens being present in 10-20% of patients awaiting transplant, the incidence of antibody mediated rejection (AMR) after ABO compatible (ABO-C) liver transplantation is low (1).Donor Specific Antibodies (DSA) can lead to early graft loss (2), but most patients awaiting liver transplant are not screened for HLA sensitisation and serum DSA measurement a...

Abstract Background The value of routine surveillance after resection of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is unclear, and expert guidelines offer conflicting recommendations. This study is a systematic review of evidence for surveillance programs. Methods A systematic review of studies evaluating different surveillance methods was undertaken. A meta-analysis was performed for those studies reporting rates of asymptomatic recurrence, treatment of recurrence and overall survival, according ...

Background Many studies have explored factors relating to post-operative pancreatic fistula (POPF); however, the original definition (All-POPF) was revised to include only 'clinically relevant' (CR) POPF. This study identified variables associated with the two International Study Group on Pancreatic Surgery definitions to identify which variables are more strongly associated with CR-POPF. Methods A systematic review identified all studies reporting risk factors for POPF (using both International...

Abstract Introduction The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic presented healthcare providers with an extreme challenge to provide cancer services. The impact upon the diagnostic and treatment capacity to treat pancreatic cancer is unclear. This study aimed to identify national variation in treatment pathways during the pandemic. Methods A survey was distributed to all United Kingdom pancreatic specialist centres, to assess diagnostic, therapeutic and interventional services availability, and alterations in trea...
