Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the impact of the extent of excision and the patent bile duct flow on treatment outcomes of bile duct cysts (BDCs). We retrospectively analyzed the records of 382 patients who received surgery for BDCs from January 2005 to December 2014. For Type Ia cysts, proper bile flow was associated with good long-term treatment outcomes with a greater level of significance (p < 0.001) than complete excision (p = 0.012). For Type IVa cysts, proper bile flow, but not complete excision, was associated with good long-term outcomes (p < 0.00001). In addition, 96.3% (104/108) of Type IVa patients with proper bile flow had no late complications and good biliary function, while no patient without patent bile flow had a good clinical outcome. For Type Ic cysts, 92 patients who received partial excisions had good outcomes when proper bile flow was restored. Regression analysis revealed that the absence of proper bile flow, in comparison to incomplete excision, is a greater risk factor for poor long-term treatment effects for Type Ia and Type IVa cysts. Compared to complete excision, the establishment of proper bile flow exerted a greater impact on improving long-term clinical outcomes after BDC surgery.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 August 2018.
All research outputs
#10,510,973
of 13,804,624 outputs
Outputs from BMC Gastroenterology
#560
of 892 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#186,463
of 270,551 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Gastroenterology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,804,624 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 892 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.8. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,551 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
