Abstract

Choledochal cysts (CC) are a cystic dilation of the intra- or extrahepatic biliary tree. They are rare, and are associated with a risk of malignant transformation. Due to the close proximity to the pancreas, Type II CC, in which a diverticular outpouching is connected to the extrahepatic bile duct via a narrow stalk, can be difficult to differentiate from pancreatic cysts. The aim of this study was to determine the role of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) in the diagnosis of Type II CC.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 December 2014.
All research outputs
#3,501,596
of 12,229,156 outputs
Outputs from Surgical Endoscopy
#889
of 3,571 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#78,245
of 275,482 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgical Endoscopy
#32
of 123 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,229,156 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,571 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 275,482 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 123 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
