BACKGROUND Cholesteryl ester storage disease (CESD), also known as lysosomal acid lipase deficiency (LAL-D), is a rare autosomal-recessive inheritable lysosomal storage disease. Since 2015, a causal treatment with sebelipase alfa, which replaces the missing LAL enzyme, has been approved. We report a fatal course of LAL-D in a female patient. CASE REPORT In 1979, CESD was first diagnosed in a 13-year-old female with marked hepatomegaly. At that time, no specific treatment for CESD was available and the spontaneous course of the disease had to be awaited...

BACKGROUND: Morbidly obese patients are usually excluded from studies that compare Transvaginal Hybrid-NOTES Cholecystectomy (TVC) with traditional laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Therefore, these study results cannot necessarily be transferred to this group of patients. In this study, we have analyzed and compared the outcomes of the procedure with obese and non-obese patients. METHODS: Data from a prospectively maintained database were retrospectively analyzed. All the TVCs performed in our clinic since 2008 were divided into groups according to their body mass index (BMI)...

Background: There is evidence-based consensus for laparoscopic cholecystectomy during index admission for predicted mild gallstone pancreatitis, defined by the absence of organ failure and of local or systemic complications. However, the optimal timing for surgery within that admission is controversial. Early cholecystectomy may shorten hospital length of stay (LOS) and increase patient satisfaction. Alternatively, it may increase operative difficulty and complications resulting in readmissions...

For centuries, surgeons have relied on their sense of touch to identify vital structures such as blood vessels in traditional open surgery. Over the past two decades, surgeons have shifted to minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches, including laparoscopic surgery, which include benefits such as less scarring, less risk for infection, and quicker recovery times. In fact, some surgeries such as cholecystectomies have seen more than an 80% adoption of this technique because of those benefits. However, due to the fundamental challenges associated with using laparoscopic surgery, there has been a lower adoption in more complex specialties, such as colorectal and thoracic surgery, where the field of surgery has bleeding, fat, scar tissue, and adhesions...

We had encountered a very rare congenital anomaly of a preduodenal portal vein while doing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. More significant in our case is that this preduodenal vein is hiding behind omental adhesions with the gallbladder. We want to raise awareness about this very rare anomaly. Recognition and knowledge of this anomaly will prevent the potential of a serious operative misadventure.

Gall bladder duplication is a rare congenital anomaly. True duplication is still rarer. Pre-operative detection helps in avoiding complications or missing the gall bladder during surgery. Ultrasonography (USG) and magnetic resonance cholangiography are investigation of choice. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the preferred modality for management of double gall bladder. We present a case diagnosed as cholelithiasis on USG. While doing laparoscopic surgery 2 gall bladders were found. She had a normal gall bladder that was lying in the supraduodenal area...

Platypnoea Orthodeoxia syndrome is defined by dyspnoea and hypoxaemia exacerbated by orthostatic positioning and alleviated in recumbency. This condition has been reported in association with pulmonary, hepatic and cardiac disease. We describe a case herein of a 79 year old female who developed severe hypoxaemia and dyspnoea post laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A difference in arterial blood gas oxygen tension was demonstrated in the supine and erect positions on arterial blood gas analysis. A Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) with a right to left shunt was evident on echocardiogram employing colour doppler and agitated normal saline studies...

Jennifer Isherwood, Kathryn Oakland, Achal Khanna
BACKGROUND: 10% of patients who undergo a cholecystectomy go on to develop post-cholecystectomy syndrome (PCS). The majority of these patients may suffer from extra-biliary or unrelated organic disorders that may have been present before cholecystectomy. The numerous aetiological causes of PCS result in a wide spectrum of management options, each with varying success in abating symptoms. This systematic review aims to provide a summary of the causative aetiologies of post cholecystectomy syndrome, their incidences and efficacy of available management options...
