Abstract

Ninety six patients with large bile duct obstruction were admitted to the surgical ward in the specialized teaching hospital for gastro-enterology and hepatology between January 2002 and march 2004 - Each of them was offered a therapeutic procedure (surgical or otherwise), that successfully drained his/her obstructed biliary system. - Each of them was assessed clinically and biochemically before and after that therapeutic procedure and the follow-up continued for 10 days to assess the immediate clinical and biochemical responses. - Most of the clinical and biochemical parameters chosen for the assessment improved towards normality during the observation period. - Aberrant results were noticed, specified, and analyzed, in order to understand the underlying pathological factors leading to them. - The results were discussed. Recommendations were suggested to improve postoperative assessment of such patients.
