Bile pipe and anastomotic injuries and intrahepatic stones are normal postoperative confusions of innate biliary dilatation (CBD). We performed twofold inflatable endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (DBERC) for indicative and restorative purposes after revolutionary medical procedure. We zeroed in on the viability of DBERC for the treatment of postoperative intricacies of CBD patients. Bile channel and anastomotic injuries and intrahepatic stones are normal postoperative intricacies of intrinsic biliary dilatation (CBD). We performed twofold inflatable endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (DBERC) for symptomatic and helpful purposes after extremist medical procedure. We zeroed in on the adequacy of DBERC for the treatment of postoperative intricacies of CBD patients. This review concentrate on included 28 patients who went through DBERC (44 methods) after extremist medical procedure for CBD between January 2011 and December 2019. Injuries were analyzed as "bile conduit injuries" on the off chance that endoscopy affirmed the presence of bile channel mucosa between the stenotic and anastomotic locales, and as "anastomotic injuries" assuming the mucosa was missing. The middle patient age was 4 (territory 0–67) a long time at the hour of essential medical procedure for CBD and 27.5 (territory 8–76) a long time at the hour of DBERC. All anastomotic injuries could be treated with exclusively by 1–2 courses of inflatable dilatation of DBERC, while numerous bile conduit injuries (41.2%) needed ≥ 3 medicines, particularly the people who went through usable bile pipe plasty as the primary treatment (83.3%). Albeit the review was restricted by the short subsequent period after DBERC treatment, DBERC is suggested as the principal line treatment for hepatolithiasis related with biliary and anastomotic injuries in CBD patients, and it very well may be securely played out various occasions.

Two-fold inflatable enteroscopy (DBE) was presented in 2003, with twofold inflatable endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (DBERC) for the postoperative remade digestive system being accounted for by Haruta in 2005. Therapy with DBERC has developed extraordinarily from that point forward, having been utilized in patients with remade digestive systems after techniques, like liver transplantation and medical procedure for bile channel tumors. Notwithstanding, the results in CBD patients have not been plainly reported besides on the off chance that series. We performed DBERC for both symptomatic and restorative purposes in both pediatric and grown-up patients after extremist medical procedure for CBD. Prior to the presentation of DBERC, we were unable to decide if the reason for intrahepatic stones was bile conduit injuries or anastomotic injuries. One reason CBD is certifiably not a straightforward sickness that can be soothed simply by extremist medical procedure is that there are instances of hard to-treat injuries in the intrahepatic bile channel. Hepatectomy may ultimately be needed for such convoluted instances of bile channel injuries. In this manner, in deciding the best treatment technique, decide if the reason for postoperative intrahepatic stones is a bile conduit injury or an anastomotic injury.

Late postoperative complications of CBD include intrahepatic stones, intrapancreatic residual bile duct, and bile duct cancer. The incidences of intrapancreatic residual bile duct and bile duct cancer have been reported to be low. Conversely, the most common late complication after CBD surgery is intrahepatic stones due to bile duct strictures and/or anastomotic strictures. Intrahepatic stones due to intrahepatic bile duct strictures after CBD surgery are difficult to treat. Indeed, postoperative complications due to bile duct strictures were difficult to treat in our study. Moreover, before the introduction of DBERC, the main treatment options for bile duct strictures were reoperations, such as operative bile duct plasty or hepatectomy. However, the therapeutic effect of reoperations was not feasible. Currently, DBERC is a treatment option in such cases, and in cases where DBERC is ineffective, it can be repeated multiple times. In addition, the burden associated with DBERC on the patient is relatively low. Twelve patients in our case series underwent DBERC multiple times, and hepatectomy was deemed necessary for three patients. This decision was made based on DBERC findings in each case, illustrating the usefulness of this approach in selecting treatment plans.

DBERC failure was noted in three cases, including a 39-yearold (36 years following surgery), a 52-year-old (24 years following surgery), and a 76-year-old (28 years following surgery). The reported complications of DBE and DBERC include gastrointestinal perforation, hemorrhage, damage to the intestinal mucosa or bile ducts, cholangitis, and pancreatitis; however, these complications are infrequent, observed in only 3-7% of cases, and have been shown to resolve after conservative treatment.

We observed two complications in our case series, each affecting one patient: (1) upper jejunal stenosis and (2) intussusception. Jejunal stenosis developed in the child following treatment for anastomotic stricture. DBERC procedure took longer than usual in this case because it was difficult to pass the endoscope through to the anastomotic region, which may have contributed to the upper jejunal stricture. In the other patient, intussusception was repaired by DBE.

It is important to review surgeries when complications occur in order to improve surgical results. However, in cases of CBD, where the interval between radical surgery and treatment of complications is long, complications are treated regardless of

the findings of radical surgery. Moreover, there is a possibility that the experience gathered from treating complications may not be relevant in improving radical surgery. In carrying out this retrospective study, we clearly defined and distinguished diagnoses of "anastomotic stricture” and "bile duct strictures" that had been vaguely recorded at the time of DBERC. This is because "anastomotic strictures” and “bile duct strictures” are different conditions. Anastomotic strictures are due to technical problems at the anastomosis of the bile duct and the intestine, while bile duct strictures are caused by patient-specific anatomical conditions, such as membranous stenosis and septal stenosis of the intrahepatic bile duct. Bile duct plasty can be added to bile duct strictures, but its long-term outcomes are not clear. In this study, we clearly defined "anastomotic strictures" and "bile duct strictures", and we hope our definition will make it possible to provide accurate feedback for radical surgery. Patients in our study underwent DBERC at a median time of 17 years after their first operation for CBD, indicating the need for long-term follow-up among those with this disease, even after surgical intervention. In this study, anastomotic strictures could be treated by just 1-2 balloon dilatations during DBERC, and a second surgical operation was not necessary. On the other hand, it is difficult to treat bile duct strictures, and intrahepatic stones that occur even after operative bile duct plasty. Based on our treatment results, DBERC might be more effective than operative bile duct plasty. In cases of bile duct strictures, recurrence of intrahepatic stones after balloon dilatation of DBERC may necessitate hepatectomy.
