BACKGROUND: Patients with persistent symptoms of acute cholecystitis for >72 h who cannot undergo urgent laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) often undergo percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) and delayed LC. However, intraoperative near-infrared fluorescence with indocyanine green (ICG) has recently become available in various surgical settings. Therefore, we evaluated the usability of intraoperative fluorescence imaging with ICG for LC after PTGBD in patients with acute cholecystitis...

BACKGROUND: Previous gastrectomy can lead to an increased incidence of cholecystocholedocholithiasis (CCL) and increased morbidity rate. However, the appropriate treatment strategy for patients with CCL and a history of gastrectomy remains unclear. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients with CCL and a history of gastrectomy who underwent either one-stage laparoscopic common bile duct (CBD) exploration with stone clearance and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LCBDE+LC) or two-stage endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography followed by LC (ERCP+LC) from May 2010 to March 2018...

PURPOSE: During laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) where Calot's triangle cannot be safely dissected due to a 'frozen' hepatic hilum secondary to severe inflammation or fibrosis, the preferred transcystic approach to the common bile duct (CBD) is precluded. The aim of this paper is to describe a safe method of accessing the CBD via a trans-infundibular approach (TIA) in complex cases where conventional access to the cystic duct or CBD is denied. METHODS: A retrospective review of 154 consecutive patients who underwent LCBDE at a single centre between 2014 and 2018 was performed...

BACKGROUND: Bile leakage after subtotal cholecystectomy (SC) is clinically serious. To prevent such leakage, we developed a new surgical technique in which a free piece of omentum is plugged into the gallbladder stump (omentum plugging technique). We evaluated whether the omentum plugging technique prevents bile leakage after subtotal cholecystectomy. METHODS: Prospectively collected data of patients who had undergone subtotal cholecystectomy without cystic duct closure in the Department of Surgery of Kansai Medical University during the 12 years from January 2006 to March 2018 were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Subtotal cholecystectomy (SC) involves removal of a portion of the gallbladder typically due to hazardous inflammation. While this technique reliably prevents common bile duct (CBD) injury, future procedures can be required if the gallbladder remnant becomes symptomatic. The morbidity associated with resection of gallbladder remnants in patients that previously underwent SC is reviewed. METHODS: Records for patients having undergone redo cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallbladder remnants in a tertiary care system from 2013 to 2017 were retrospectively reviewed...

A 26-year-old primigravid patient, at 35 weeks and 2 days of gestation, was referred to Hacettepe University Hospital for pancreatic mass, giant cervical myoma, maternal systemic lupus erythematosus, thrombocytopenia, and onset of preterm labor. At 36 weeks and 1 day of gestation (6 days after admission to the hospital), regular uterine contractions started and cervical dilatation with effacement was observed. Because of breech presentation and giant cervical myoma, a cesarean section was performed on the primigravid patient under general anesthesia...

INTRODUCTION: Early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ELC) is considered the standard treatment for acute cholecystitis for patients who can tolerate surgery. The ideal time for performing ELC is reported to be 72 h from onset. However, many patients undergo surgery on or after the fourth day from onset, even if they presented early after onset. A few reports have investigated the feasibility and disadvantages of this so-called "postponed laparoscopic cholecystectomy" (PLC). METHODS: This study consisted of 215 patients who had undergone laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis within 6 days of onset between July 2006 and December 2017...

Backgrounds/Aims: A residual gallbladder (RGB) following a partial/subtotal cholecystectomy may cause symptoms that require its removal. We present our large study regarding the problem of a RGB over a 15 year period. Methods: This study involved a retrospective analysis of patients managed for symptomatic RGB from January 2000 to December 2015. Results: A RGB was observed in 93 patients, who had a median age of 45 (25-70) years, and were comprised of 69 (74...

BACKGROUND: Bile duct injury remains a dilemma in laparoscopic cholecystectomy, with an incidence still higher than in conventional cholecystectomy. The Critical View of Safety technique is used as one of the important operating technique to reduce bile duct injury incidence. The objective of this study was to determine current practices in laparoscopic cholecystectomy and the use of the Critical View of Safety technique among surgeons and residents in surgical training. METHODS: We conducted an electronic survey among all affiliated members of the Association of Surgeons of the Netherlands containing questions regarding the current practice of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, essential steps of the Critical View of Safety technique, reasons for conversion to open cholecystectomy, and the use of other safety techniques...

We report a case of a previously healthy female patient who initially presented with fever, jaundice and right upper quadrant pain three days after dilatation and stenting of a stricture of the common bile duct (CBD). During an earlier admission, the patient had undergone endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) having presented with fevers and biliary dilatation on ultrasound. The ERCP features were more consistent with Mirizzi's Syndrome. The patient subsequently underwent subtotal cholecystectomy and later developed a CBD stricture, requiring repeat ERCP and stent insertion...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic subtotal cholecystectomy (LSC) has been recognized as an alternative to conversion to laparotomy for severe cholecystitis. However, it may be associated with an increased risk of recurrent stones in the gallbladder remnant. The objective of this study was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the complete removal of the gallbladder cavity in LSC for severe cholecystitis using the cystic duct orifice suturing (CDOS) technique. METHODS: In a consecutive series of 412 laparoscopic cholecystectomies that were performed from January 2015 to June 2017, 12 patients who underwent LSC with CDOS were enrolled in this retrospective study...

We use open cholecystectomy (OC) to treat severe cholecystitis in cases in which we are worried that inflammation might cause anatomical changes in Calot's triangle. Furthermore, in cases of severe cholecystitis in which marked inflammation leads to fibrosis, we perform subtotal cholecystectomy (SC), i.e., incomplete gallbladder resection. Laparoscopic SC (LSC) without cystic duct dissection is considered to be effective at reducing the incidence of serious complications in patients with severe cholecystitis...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic subtotal cholecystectomy (LSC) is a widely used technique for managing cholelithiasis with severe cholecystitis. The increasing popularity its utilization is due to the good safety profile and acceptable results. This case series evaluates the short- and long-term results of Indonesian patients who underwent LSC with an objective to determine whether the procedure can be a standard approach for difficult cholecystectomy in our institution. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Thirty-four Indonesian patients (26 men, 8 women) with the mean age of 54...
