About the book

Cholangitis is simply an inflammation of the bile ducts, and at the same time could be a serious life-threatening condition. The etiology and pathogenesis are heterogeneous. Imaging modalities including, transabdominal and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP), and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), are mandatory in the diagnosis, staging, and management of cholangitis. The management of cholangitis varies according to the etiology and the clinical situation and includes medical treatment, endoscopic and percutaneous interventional procedures. Surgical management is necessary in some case, including bile duct exploration, biliary-enteric anastomosis and may extend to liver transplantation in some cases. The prognosis depends on many factors including the etiology, the state of the liver functions, the general condition of the patient, and associated co-morbidities. This book will aim to provide an updated review on the etiology, pathogenesis, and clinical presentations of various forms of cholangitis, as well as the methods of diagnosis and management of different forms of cholangitis.
