Clinical Presentation and Different Treatment Modalities of Obstructed Jaundice
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Objective: To determine the clinical presentation and different treatment modalities of obstructed jaundice at tertiary care Hospital.
Study Design: Prospective observational study.
Place and Duration: Present study was conducted in the Department of general Surgery of Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences, Jamshoro during two years from July 2015 to June 2017.
Patients and Methods: Total 50 patients having obstructed jaundice and either gender were evaluated after taking history, clinical examinations including specific investigations like ultrasound of abdomen, liver function test (LFT), magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), computed tomography (CT) endoscopic retrograde cholangio pancreatography (ERCP), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) biopsy, tumor markers and x- ray chest for diagnosis and prognosis purpose. All the data was recorded via self-made proforma.
Results: Out of all cases, 20 patients were in age group of 30 to 45 year, 21 patients were in age group 46 to 64 years and 09 patients were in age group 65 to 80 year. Thirty one patients were presented with intermittent jaundice and pain,14 patients had jaundice, pruritus, pale stool, dark urine and 5 patients were presented with jaundice, pruritus, pale stool with dark urine, pain, anorexia and weight loss. Thirty one patients were diagnosed with benign lesions and 19 patients had malignant lesions. Most of the patients (26.52%) were treated by ERCP, stent. Fifteen underwent open surgery, and 9 were treated by palliative procedure, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and gene therapy.
Conclusion: Obstructed jaundice is a critical problem all over the world, in which initially patients present with jaundice, pain, pruritus with pale stool, dark urine and weight loss. Patients can be treated by ERCP, stent. Fifteen patients underwent open surgery and 9 were treated by palliative procedure, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and gene therapy.
