In brief: Management of SC

The goal of managing acute attacks is antibiotics and IV fluids.
In about 15%, emergency decompression or surgery is needed. Prevention of future attacks of cholangitis is based on removing biliary stones and debris, dilation or resection of strictures, and establishing optimal biliary drainage. Also important to rule out the clonorchis parasite. Your GI doctor can discuss newest treatments.
