Abstract

Bile is a lipid-rich sterile solution produced in the liver that can be infected resulting in bactibilia. A higher incidence of postoperative infectious complications has been seen in patients with bactibilia. Recently, gram-negative bacteria have been linkedtoatumor-associatedinflammatorystatus.Thisstudyisaretrospectivecohortstudyof39patients,whoareover80years ofageonly(53.85%malesand46.15%females),hospitalizedwithdiseasesofthebiliopancreaticsysteminoneteachinghospital inItaly fromJanuary 2011 toDecember2012witha follow-up of5 years.The mostcommonbiliary diseasesafter surgerywere pancreaticheadcancer(p<0.0001)andgallbladdercancer(p=0.0051),whilethemostcommonbacteriainthebilewereE.coli (p=0.0180) and Pseudomonas spp. (p<0.0001). Uni- and multivariate linear correlation analysis revealed that patients with pancreatic head cancer had low survival times compared to patients with other diseases.
