The optimal timing of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) in patients with mild acute gallstone pancreatitis (MAGP) is controversial. The aim of this study was to systematically evaluate and compare the safety and efficacy of early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ELC) and delayed laparoscopic cholecystectomy (DLC) in patients with MAGP.
Current guidelines recommend laparoscopic cholecystectomy be offered for patients with acute cholecystitis except those deemed as high risk. Few studies have examined the impact of frailty on outcomes for patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the association of frailty with postoperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis.
We hypothesized that practicing surgeons would successfully achieve a better and more frequent Critical View of Safety (CVS) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) after participation in a structured Safe CVS Curriculum.
Biliary dyskinesia (BD) is a common indication for cholecystectomy in children. Current literature demonstrates an improvement in symptoms after cholecystectomy in most pediatric patients with an EF 65%) is sparse. We sought to determine whether children with hyperkinetic BD (HBD) had resolution of their symptoms after laparoscopic cholecystectomy at our institution.
Debate remains regarding the timing of laparoscopic cholecystectomy after emergent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for acute cholangitis. We hypothesized that patients undergoing early laparoscopic cholecystectomy would have fewer operative complications and a lower conversion rate. This study is a retrospective review of an ERCP database from 2012 to 2016 of adults with a diagnosis of cholangitis secondary to choledocholithiasis who underwent ERCP followed by a laparoscopic cholecyste...
Patient demand for cosmetically superior surgical outcomes has driven minimally invasive technique development like single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC). Implementation has been hindered by equipment factors, compromise of ergonomics, increased cost, and larger primary incision, leading to the associated risk of postoperative wound complications, incisional hernia, and fascial dehiscence. We present a method of reduced port laparoscopic cholecystectomy (RPLC), which utilises existing laparosc...
International guidelines state that early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ELC) is appropriate for all severity grades of acute cholecystitis and leads to reduced hospital stays and costs. A multicenter prospective randomized controlled trial recommends ELC over delayed laparoscopic cholecystectomy (DLC) management because in addition to reduced hospital stays and costs, ELC also leads to reduced patient morbidity. Therefore, ELC is standard of care for acute cholecystitis. We hypothesize that 1) international...
As minimally invasive pediatric surgery becomes standard approach to many surgical solutions, access has become an important point for improvement. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the gold standard for many conditions affecting the gallbladder; however, open cholecystectomy (OC) is offered as the initial approach in a surprisingly high percentage of cases. The Kids' Inpatient Database (1997-2012) was searched for International Classification of Disease, 9th revision, Clinical Modification procedure co...
This study was planned and performed to evaluate the effect of foot and hand massage on pain and anxiety management, which is one of the nonpharmacological pain relief methods in patients who undergo laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The present study was designed and conducted in the randomized controlled manner to determine the impacts of foot and hand massage on postoperative pain and anxiety scores of patients who receive laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The universe of the study consisted of the patients who ...
Comparison of the safety and efficacy of single-stage endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography plus laparoscopic cholecystectomy versus two-stage ERCP followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy six-to-eight weeks later: A randomized controlled trial.
INTRODUCTİON: Currently, the management of cholelithiasis in combination with choledocholithiasis involves endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) followed by cholecystectomy. However, recently, early surgical approaches are becoming more common, even in the treatment of acute cholecystitis. METODS: Patients diagnosed as having cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis between October 2017 and May 2019 were prospectively enrolled in the study in a randomized manner. Patients undergoing ERCP + LC...
Compared to other common outpatient operations, laparoscopic cholecystectomy has higher rates of unanticipated hospital admission with reports ranging from 1.0 to 39.5%. Identification of simple preoperative risk factors for admission can aid appropriate patient selection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of obesity with need for hospital admission and day of surgery postoperative complications.
Subtotal cholecystectomy has been employed in cases of tecnically difficult cholecystectomy to prevent common bile duct injury. Given that there are few reports in Mexico on the theme, we consider it important to present the 18-year experience of a surgical group in the South-Southeast of Mexico.
Giant gallbladder (GGB) is a rare condition that can result from cholelithiasis or chronic cholecystitis. Although there are no clear-cut definitions, gallbladders of >14 cm and ≥1.5 L have been regarded as GGBs. To date, most GGBs have been managed by laparotomic removal. This report describes a patient with a GGB that presented as a right iliac fossa mass. The GGB was successfully removed by mini-laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A 63-year-old woman presented with painful swelling in her right lower abdomen...
The removal of common bile duct stones (CBDS) is routinely performed as either a 1-stage or 2-stage procedure. Despite many developments in both methods, the optimal approach has not been established to date. This study aimed to investigate the value and short-term outcomes of hybrid laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) combined with intraoperative endoscopic nasobiliary drainage (IO-ENBD) after primary duct closure (PDC) and intraoperative cholangiography ...
Gallstones are a common cause of morbidity in the elderly. Operative treatment is often avoided due to concerns about poor outcomes but the evidence for this is unclear. We aim to consolidate available evidence assessing laparoscopic cholecystectomy outcomes in the extreme elderly (>80s) compared to younger patients. - Studies comparing laparoscopic cholecystectomy in >80s with younger patients were considered. Total complications, mortality, conversion, bile duct injury, and length of stay were compared b...
The studies that established historical rates of surgical infection after cholecystectomy predate the modern era of laparoscopy and routine prophylactic antibiotics. Newer studies have reported a much lower incidence of infections in "low-risk" elective, outpatient, laparoscopic cholecystectomies. We investigated the current rate of postoperative infections in these cases within a large, U.S.
Ectopic hepatic tissue is due to an uncommon failure of embryological liver development. The incidence of ectopic liver has been reported to be anywhere from 0.24% to 0.47% and a prevalence rate of 0.47% as diagnosed at laparotomy or laparoscopy. We report a case of Ectopic Hepatic tissue attached to the gallbladder wall that was discovered during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
To compare the therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture (EA) of single-acupoint Zusanli (ST36) and multi-acupoints Zusanli (ST36), Shangjuxu (ST37) and Neiguan (PC6) in promoting the recovery of gastrointestinal movement in laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) patients undergoing general anesthesia.
A 74-year-old woman with left main and three-vessel coronary artery disease was scheduled for off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting and developed acute severe cholecystitis preoperatively. Percutaneous gallbladder drainage was placed to achieve gallbladder decompression and infection control. Two weeks later, CABG and laparoscopic cholecystectomy were successfully performed at the same time.
Early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ELC) within 72 h of symptom onset is preferred for management of acute cholecystitis (AC). Beyond 72 h, acute-on-chronic fibrosis sets in rendering surgery challenging. This study aims to compare the outcomes of ELC for AC within and beyond 72 h of symptom onset by a dedicated acute surgical unit.
To investigate efficacy of combined use of parecoxib and dexmedetomidine on postoperative pain and early cognitive dysfunction after laparoscopic cholecystectomy for elderly patients.
The prediction of a difficult cholecystectomy has traditionally been based on certain pre-operative clinical and imaging factors. Most of the previous literature reported small patient cohorts and have not used an objective measure of operative difficulty. The aim of this study was to develop a pre-operative score to predict difficult cholecystectomy, as defined by a validated intra-operative difficulty grading scale.
Biloma is an encapsulated collection of bile outside or inside the biliary system within the abdominal cavity. It is a rare condition with an incidence of 0.3%-2%. The most common cause of spontaneous biloma is choledocholithiasis, and other causes include abdominal trauma and surgery, bile duct tumors, liver infarction, percutaneous catheter drainage, transhepatic cholangiogram and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) but the exact cause is yet to be discovered. We herein present a case re...
Cirrhosis is associated with adverse outcomes after emergency general surgery (EGS). The objective of this study was to determine the safety of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) in EGS patients with cirrhosis. We performed a two-year retrospective cohort analysis of adult patients who underwent LC for symptomatic gallstones. The primary outcome was the incidence of intraoperative complications. Of 796 patients, 59 (7.4%) were cirrhotic, with a median model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score of 15 (IQR...
