The trial compares minilaparotomy (small-incision) cholecystectomy with (key-hole) laparoscopic cholecystectomy by randomly allocating patients with gallbladder disease to two groups of su...
The objectives of this trial are: 1. to assess the feasibility and safety of performing SILS™ Port Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy 2. monitor and compare the outcomes of SI...
Surgical removal of the gallbladder is needed in 1 million people per year in the USA. The procedure is done by placing four tubes (cannula) from 5 to 10 mm through the abdominal wall. Air...
Background: Single port access surgery is a rapidly progressing surgical approach which allows performance of standard laparoscopic surgery through a single transparietal port instead of ...
Case matched study on 50 consecutive patients undergoing robotic assisted cholecystectomy (Da Vinci Robot, Intuitive Surgical). These patients are matched 1:1 to 50 patients with conventio...
A 55-year-old man had laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis and unexpected gallbladder cancer, followed by a liver bed resection and lymph node dissection. Eleven years later, he had a ...
True left-sided gallbladder (sinistroposition) is a rare anatomic anomaly in which the gallbladder is found to the left of the falciform ligament, under the left lobe of the liver. Though uncommon, it...
A 75-year-old woman entered the hospital emergency room complaining of severe epigastric pain. She had experienced similar repeated abdominal pain for some time. Biliary tract dyskinesia was suspected...
Abstract Background: Postcholecystectomy syndrome has been a long-standing source of frustration for surgeons. The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic remn...
Emphysematous cholecystitis (EC) is an uncommon variant of acute cholecystitis, which is caused by secondary infection of the gallbladder wall with gas-forming organisms. The mortality rate of EC is s...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.
Surgical removal of the GALLBLADDER.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
A process whereby bile is delivered from the gallbladder into the duodenum. The emptying is caused by both contraction of the gallbladder and relaxation of the sphincter mechanism at the choledochal terminus.
Tumors or cancer of the gallbladder.
