Both ultrasound-guided percutaneous transhepatic cholecystosis (PTGD) and percutaneous transhepatic cholecystosis (PTCD) can reduce serum bilirubin level and improve liver function. However, is there a difference in effectiveness between the two treatments? There are no studies on this issue. We retrospectively analyzed 106 cases of obstructive jaundice treated in the First Hospital of Jilin University, of which 55 cases were treated with ultrasound-guided PTGD. 51 cases were treated with ultrasound-guided PTCD. Serum bilirubin and transaminase values were measured one day before operation and seventh day after operation, and the reduction rate of serum bilirubin level was calculated. The incidence of postoperative complications were compared, including infection, bleeding, and biliary leakage. Most patients see a decrease in serum bilirubin levels, but elevated in a few. The differences of serum bilirubin and transaminase decrease rate between PTGD group and PTCD group were not significant(P>0.05), the same was true for complications(P>0.05).
