The subvesical bile ducts are located in the peri-hepatic connective tissue of the gallbladder fossa. Injury of the subvesical bile ducts provokes the severe complication of bile leak. Until now, fluorescent cholangiography has been employed during hepatobiliary surgery. Herein, we report the detection of subvesical bile ducts by fluorescent cholangiography during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Gallstone spillage during laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a common occurrence. Complications due to spilled gallstones occur in up to 5% of laparoscopic cholecystectomy cases, with complications havin...
Perforation of the gallbladder during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) results in spill of bile or gallstones in the abdominal cavity. The aim of this study was to assess whether antibiotic agents af...
Since the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), a substantial increase in bile duct injury (BDI) incidence was noted. Multiple methods to prevent this complication have been developed and...
With increased experience and technological advancement, laparoscopic cholecystectomy is reported to be safe and feasible even in the presence of most of the previously recognized contraindications. T...
Initial reservations regarding spillage and the ability to manage the cyst wall have been allayed by many reports which show satisfying results with minimal complications using laparoscopic techniques...
The primary objective is to compare the success rates of intraoperative fluorescent cholangiography using indocyanine green versus conventional X-ray cholangiography for the identification...
Background. X-ray cholangiography has a high sensitivity and specificity of detecting bile duct stones and is the gold standard. There are no studies describing the sensitivity and specifi...
The study compares two different methods to evaluate extrahepatic bile ducts for possible stones for patients with cholecystolithiasis and intermediate risk for choledocholithiasis when la...
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) can be performed for different standard operations such as appendectomy and cholecystectomy. During laparoscopic cholecystectomy sometimes a cho...
The aim of the trial is to compare two operations which are used to treat bile duct stones. The hypothesis of the study is that there is no difference between endoscopic sphincterotomy fol...
Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.
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.
An imaging test of the BILIARY TRACT in which a contrast dye (RADIOPAQUE MEDIA) is injected into the BILE DUCT and x-ray pictures are taken.
Minute intercellular channels that occur between liver cells and carry bile towards interlobar bile ducts. Also called bile capillaries.
The channels that collect and transport the bile secretion from the BILE CANALICULI, the smallest branch of the BILIARY TRACT in the LIVER, through the bile ductules, the bile ducts out the liver, and to the GALLBLADDER for storage.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
