ABSTRACT

Neonatal cholestatic disorder in the late neonatal period requires often cholangiography to differentiate between biliary atresia and other causes of prolonged neonatal jaundice. A simplified method of a laparoscopic-assisted cholecysto-cholangiography is presented. Retrospective chart review was conducted of all patients who from May 2002 to April 2012 underwent a laparoscopic-assisted cholecysto-cholangiography with routine fixation of the fundus of the gallbladder to the lateral aspect of the abdominal wall. A total of 18 infants (8 boys) aged 41-104 (median 64) days underwent laparoscopic-assisted cholecysto-cholangiography for prolonged jaundice. The technique identified ten cases of a patent bile duct system and eight biliary atresias. (Thirty-two cases of suspected biliary atresia were confirmed by laparoscopy alone.) Two cases required suturing of a bile leak at the puncture site. Hitching the gallbladder to the lateral abdominal wall is a simple method allowing an optimal radiographic assessment of the extra- and intra-hepatic bile duct anatomy.
