Ultrasound Guided Biliary Drain Placement Transhepatic Percutaneous
Whats percutaneous cholecystectomy? Whats transhepatic biliary catheter? Whats biliary stent? Are they effective alternatives to a cholecystectomy?
Possibly: Percutaneous cholecystostomy is a tube placed through the skin into the gb for drainage. Thbc is a tube passed through the skin, the liver, and into the bile duct system, a form of biliary stent. Some stents can be passed into the lower duct using an endoscope through the stomach. Any may be necessary in some cases, but cholecystectomy would be the gold standard in most cases. Good luck. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
No, but...: There are less invasive ways to image the biliary tree, like ultrasound, ERCP (by a gastroenterologist) and mrcp (mri). If there is some blockage, drainage can usually be achieved by a gastroenterologist, with percutaneous drainage reserved for cases that cannot be treated by a gastroenterologist. While percutaneous biliary imaging and interventions do not have high risk, less risky options exist. ...Read more

A needle or sometimes a catheter is inserted into the abscess while watching with the us. Pus is sent for culture studies. The needle is removed. A catheter may be left in place for days or longer and allowed to drain. Less invasive than surgical drainage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Looks at chomosomes: Chorionic villus sampling enables a doctor to remove a small sample of the tissue that surrounds the early sac of pregnancy. This, then, allows the study of the chomosomes - for early diagnosis of conditions such as down syndrome (an extra chromosome #21). It is done with ultrasound guidance at roughly 11 weeks of pregnancy. Amniocentesis is a procedure done later in pregnancy for the same reason. ...Read more

The percutaneous approach is commonly used in vascular procedures. This involves a needle catheter getting access ...Read more
