Chappell, Ph.D., from King's College London, and colleagues conducted a randomized placebo-controlled trial at 33 hospital maternity units involving women with intrahepatic
cholestasis of pregnancy aged 18 years or older and with a gestational age between 20 weeks and 40 weeks and six days.
cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is a liver disorder affecting approximately 5,500 pregnancies annually in the UK.
The decisive MRI findings of IgG4-related SC and AIP are smooth distal CBD stricture with proximal intrahepatic
biliary dilatation, strictures and aneurysmal dilatation of the lower CBD, and diffuse pancreatic enlargement with a hypoenhancing halo, as in our case (4).
Percutaneous transhepatic access was performed with ultrasound guidance (mapping a suitable intrahepatic
The portal vein was absent at the porta and the intrahepatic
portal vein branches and venules were not seen (Figure 2).
Color Doppler ultrasound revealed a monophasic turbulent venous flow pattern within the intrahepatic

Double primary hepatic cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma and intrahepatic
cholangiocellular carcinoma) originating from hepatic progenitor cell: a case report and review of the literature.
(1) to assess the effect of intrahepatic
cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) upon newborn birthweight, we have concerns about the authors' interpretation of their findings because the birthweights in their meta-analysis were not corrected for gestational week or reported as a customised birthweight centile.
The establishment of the techniques for precision biliary surgery has resolved the key technical problems in the surgical treatment of intrahepatic
bile duct diseases and has enabled biliary surgery from the extrahepatic and hepatic portal to intrahepatic
Progressive familial intrahepatic
cholestasis (PFIC) is one of the causes of childhood end stage liver disease.
(5) Patient demographics, clinical presentation and detailed preoperative imaging characteristics of the tumour, including intrahepatic
location were recorded.
cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA) is the second most common primary hepatic malignancy, with an increasing incidence rate reported worldwide.
