Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the operative methods of biliary tract reconstruction after cystectomy of congenital choledochal cyst(CCC).

METHODS:

One hundred and six cases with CCC underwent cystectomy and biliary tract reconstruction in our hospital from July 1984 to December 1999 were followed up. Among them, there were three kinds of procedures in biliary tract reconstruction: with single Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy in 48 cases, with intussusceptive valve to the line of Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy in 37 cases, with rectangular valve to the line of Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy in 21 cases.

RESULTS:

Fifty nine cases were followed up for 4.68 years in average. There were 3 cases with ascending cholangitis after single Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy. And the symptom disappeared in 2 cases underwent reoperation with an intussueceptive valve plasty to the line of Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy. No patients suffered from ascending cholangitis in the precautionary valve plasty group.

CONCLUSION:

It suggests that the postoperative ascending cholangitis can be prevented effectively if standard cystectomy and prophylactic intussusceptive valve added to the line of Roux-Y hepaticojejunostomy are carried out. The procedure should be performed as soon as possible providing the child is tolerable.
