Table 2 Late complications and long-term biliary function of patients with Type Ia bile duct cysts

From: Proper bile duct flow, rather than radical excision, is the most critical factor determining treatment outcomes of bile duct cysts

  Complete excision+ proper bile flow (n = 138) Complete excision only (n = 14) Partial excision+ proper bile flow (n = 12) Partial excision only (n = 2) p-value (function of extent of excision) P-value (function of proper bile flow)
Late complications 0 12 (85.7) 2 (16.7) 2 (100) 0.012 <.00001
Long-term biliary function      0.012 <.00001
 Excellent 130 (94.2) 1 (7.1) 3 (25) 0   
 Good 8 (5.8) 1 (7.1) 7 (58.3) 0   
 Fair 0 10 (71.4) 2 (16.7) 0   
 Poor 0 2 (14.4) 0 2 (100)   
  1. Data are expressed as number of cases (percentage)
  2. P-values were calculated based on a chi-square test to compare distributions of late complications and long term biliary function on complete excision and bile flow status
