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.
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...
ABSTRACT: Metastatic disease to the gallbladder is unusual. The most common malignancy metastatic to the gallbladder is melanoma, followed by renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and breast cancer. Due to the u...
BACKGROUND: The clinical benefit of prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in laparoscopic cholecystectomy is unclear. This study aimed to assess the clinical burden of VTE and the efficacy and...
Gallstone disease is a highly prevalent condition which is commonly and safely treated by laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We present the third reported case of chyle leakage following laparoscopic chole...
BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the treatment of choice for gallstone disease. Advantages of the laparoscopic approach include lower morbidity and mortality rates, reduced length o...
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the standard treatment for symptomatic cholelithiasis in patients with situs inversus totalis (SIT). Nowadays, singleincision multiport laparoscopic surgery is...
