Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is nowadays the gold standard in the surgical treatment of cholelithiasis and gallbladder diseases. But sometimes it may be inevitable to convert it to open surgery to safely end the procedure.

Background and aims Pain is the most common reason for delayed discharge after day-case laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This study investigates a simple five-item questionnaire in evaluating the risk of...
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...
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of IL-6, TNF-α and hs-CRP on insulin sensitivity during postoperative follow-up in patients with laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) or open herni...
Whether preoperative spirometry in non-thoracic surgery can predict postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) is controversial. We investigated whether preoperative spirometry results can predict t...
BACKGROUND One treatment for colon endoluminal tumors is endoscopic resection, i.e., endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). In this report we describe a case of an endoluminal tumor resected safely and c...
Risk factors for postoperative shoulder pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy were not clear. Moreover, risk factors for postoperative emesis specially for this surgery were not detailed...
Registering and observing clinical and radiological data of patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy, then formulating these data aiming to find helpful scoring system to predict d...
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a common accepted surgical operation with lower morbidity all over the world for gallstone. Although it has low morbidity, postoperative pain is challenging...
This study is to evaluate the effect of preoperative acupressure application on Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy in terms of be...
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...
Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
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.
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...
