OBJECTIVE: To assess if simple cholecystectomy with adjuvant therapy could provide outcomes comparable to extended cholecystectomy. BACKGROUND: Current guidelines recommend extended/radical cholecystectomy for T2/T3 gallbladder cancer; however, many tumors are discovered incidentally at laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS: The national Cancer Data Base 2004 to 2014 was queried for patients with pT2/T3 gallbladder adenocarcinoma who underwent resection...

BACKGROUND: Current data on the utility of port-site excision (PSE) during re-resection for incidentally discovered gallbladder cancer (IGBC) in the US are conflicting and limited to single-institution series. METHODS: All patients with IGBC who underwent curative re-resection at 10 institutions from 2000 to 2015 were included. Patients with and without PSE were compared. Primary outcome was overall survival (OS). RESULTS: Of 449 pts with GBC, 266 were incidentally discovered, of which 193(73%) underwent curative re-resection and had port-site data; 47 pts(24%) underwent PSE, 146(76%) did not...

OBJECTIVES: The management of incidentally detected gallbladder polyps on radiological examinations is contentious. The incidental radiological finding of a gallbladder polyp can therefore be problematic for the radiologist and the clinician who referred the patient for the radiological examination. To address this a joint guideline was created by the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR), European Association for Endoscopic Surgery and other Interventional Techniques (EAES), International Society of Digestive Surgery - European Federation (EFISDS) and European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE)...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative chemotherapy is a strategy for converting to resection and/or assessing disease biology before operation. The utility of such an approach in gallbladder carcinoma (GBCA) is unknown. This study evaluated outcomes of GBCA patients treated with chemotherapy for locally advanced or lymph node-involved tumors. STUDY DESIGN: Patients who received systemic chemotherapy for locally advanced or lymph node-positive GBCA were identified from a departmental database...

BACKGROUND: The clinical impact of major hepatectomy for advanced gallbladder cancer is currently unclear. METHODS: Patients who underwent resection for stage II, III or IV gallbladder cancer were enrolled. The surgical outcomes of patients who underwent major hepatectomy were compared with those of patients treated with minor hepatectomy and those with unresectable gallbladder cancer. The clinical impact of major hepatectomy and combined advanced procedures such as portal vein resection or pancreatoduodenectomy for advanced gallbladder cancer were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: The role of adjuvant therapy in patients with resected gallbladder cancer (GBC) is unclear. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Cancer Data Base was used to identify patients with resected GBC (pathologic stage 1-3) from 1998 to 2006 (n = 6690). We compared three groups: surgery only (S, 78.6 %), surgery plus adjuvant chemotherapy (AC, 6.2 %), and surgery plus adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy (ACR, 15.1 %). Univariate and Cox regression analyses were used to determine factors influencing overall survival and the use of adjuvant therapy...

PURPOSE: Locally advanced (T3/T4) gallbladder cancers with large fixed portal nodes have a dismal prognosis. If undertaken, surgery entails extensive resections with high morbidity; therefore, in many centers, patients are offered palliative chemotherapy. In this prospective study, we used neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiation with the intention of downstaging and facilitating R0 resection of these tumors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-eight patients with locally advanced carcinoma gallbladder (stage III, having deep liver infiltrations and/or large portal nodes) underwent prior positron emission tomography/computed tomography to rule out metastatic disease...

BACKGROUND: Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is a rare malignancy with a dismal prognosis. Often identified incidentally after laparoscopic cholecystectomy for presumably benign biliary disease, reoperation with partial hepatic resection and periportal lymph node dissection (LND) is frequently performed. The impact of lymph node (LN) clearance for GBC remains unclear. METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was queried for patients diagnosed with GBC between 1988 and 2009...

BACKGROUND: We aim to develop a risk stratification tool to preoperatively predict conversion (CONV) from a laparoscopic to open cholecystectomy. METHODS: Multiple risk factors were analyzed with multivariate logistic regression and presented as probability nomograms. RESULTS: Of 732 patients, 47 (6.4%) required CONV. Among 40 preoperative risk factors evaluated, 5 variables were found to have significant association with CONV: 2 clinical variables, previous upper abdominal surgery (odds ratio [OR] 95...

BACKGROUND: The role of hepato-imino diacetic acid scan (HIDA) in the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis remains controversial when compared with the more commonly used abdominal ultrasound (AUS). METHODS: The diagnostic imaging workup of 1,217 patients who presented to the emergency department at a single hospital with acute abdominal pain and suspicion of acute cholecystitis was reviewed to calculate the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of AUS and HIDA...

BACKGROUND: Residual disease (RD) at definitive resection of incidental gallbladder cancer (IGBCA) influences outcome, but its clinical relevance with respect to anatomic site is incompletely characterized. STUDY DESIGN: Consecutive patients with IGBCA undergoing re-exploration from 1998 to 2009 were identified; those submitted to a complete resection were analyzed. Demographics and tumor- and treatment-related variables were correlated with RD and survival. Cancer-specific survival was stratified by site of RD (local [gallbladder bed]; regional [bile duct, lymph nodes]; distant [discontiguous liver, port site, peritoneal])...

PURPOSE: The aim was to evaluate prognostic factors and factors associated with the resectability of advanced gallbladder cancer (GBC). METHODS: This was a single-institution retrospective review of 274 consecutive surgically-treated cases of advanced GBC (excluding incidental GBC and early GBC). Univariate and multivariate analysis were performed to assess prognostic variables. R0 resection and survival rates were investigated for each local extension factor. RESULTS: Long-term survival was uncommon among patients with multiple liver metastases (H2-3: n = 22; 2-year survival, 0 %), dissemination (P1-3: n = 16; 3-year survival, 0 %), invasion through the hepatoduodenal ligament (Binf3: n = 45; 5-year survival, 4...

IMPORTANCE: Ninety percent of cases of acute calculous cholecystitis are of mild (grade I) or moderate (grade II) severity. Although the preoperative and intraoperative antibiotic management of acute calculous cholecystitis has been standardized, few data exist on the utility of postoperative antibiotic treatment. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of postoperative amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid on infection rates after cholecystectomy. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: A total of 414 patients treated at 17 medical centers for grade I or II acute calculous cholecystitis and who received 2 g of amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid 3 times a day while in the hospital before and once at the time of surgery were randomized after surgery to an open-label, noninferiority, randomized clinical trial between May 2010 and August 2012...

BACKGROUND: A pneumoperitoneum of 12 to 16 mm Hg is used for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Lower pressures are claimed to be safe and effective in decreasing cardiopulmonary complications and pain. OBJECTIVES: To assess the benefits and harms of low pressure pneumoperitoneum compared with standard pressure pneumoperitoneum in people undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) in The Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Science Citation Index Expanded until February 2013 to identify randomised trials,using search strategies...

BACKGROUND: Survival after surgery for gallbladder cancer is generally poor. A number of inflammation-based prognostic scores have been established to help predict survival after surgery for several types of cancer. The objective of this study was to analyze and compare the utility of two inflammation-based prognostic scores, the Glasgow prognostic score (GPS) and the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), for predicting survival in patients with gallbladder cancer after surgery with curative intent...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the main method of treatment of symptomatic gallstones. Drains are used after laparoscopic cholecystectomy to prevent abdominal collections. However, drain use may increase infective complications and delay discharge. OBJECTIVES: The aim is to assess the benefits and harms of routine abdominal drainage in uncomplicated laparoscopic cholecystectomy. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) in The Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Science Citation Index Expanded until February 2013...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is used to manage symptomatic gallstones. There is considerable controversy regarding whether it should be done as day-surgery or as an overnight stay surgery with regards to patient safety. OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of day-surgery versus overnight stay laparoscopic cholecystectomy on patient-oriented outcomes such as mortality, severe adverse events, and quality of life. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Hepato-Biliary Group Controlled Trials Register and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) in The Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Science Citation Index Expanded, and mRCT until September 2012...

Adjuvant treatment is not routine following resection for gallbladder cancer as most regimens have low response rates. In the palliative setting, recent advances have been made regarding combination chemotherapies and both gemcitabine/cisplatin and gemcitabine/oxaliplatin appear to be superior to single-agent 5FU, which has very little efficacy in this disease. There are isolated reports of dramatic responses to targeted monoclonal agents. The role of radiotherapy has recently been revisited, however, its effectiveness when patients are adequately surgically treated remains to be demonstrated...

Although gallbladder cancer (GBC) is the most common malignancy of the biliary tract, its relatively low incidence and confounding symptomatology result in advanced disease at the time presentation, contributing to the poor prognosis and decreased survival associated with this disease. It is therefore increasingly important to understand its pathogenesis and risk factors to allow for the earliest possible diagnosis. To date, gallbladder cancer is poorly understood compared to other malignancies, and is still most commonly discovered incidentally after cholecystectomy...
