Interest of Intravenous Cholangiography With Indocyanine Green in the Context of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for Grade 1 and 2 Acute Gallstone Cholecystitis

2019-10-01 07:55:14 | BioPortfolio


Acute lithiasis cholecystitis (ALC) is the third most common cause of surgical emergency admission. The initial treatment of ALC associates a medical support and a cholecystectomy, preferentially performed laparoscopically in the first 5 days of evolution. During the surgery, intraoperative cholangiography (CPO) using a contrast product is the "gold standard" to identify the bile ducts. However CPO is performed in approximately 30% of laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy for ALC is associated with an increase in the rate of biliary ducts injuries compared with cholecystectomy for symptomatic vesicular lithiasis, evaluated at 0.8 % versus 0.1 %. Its higher rate is related to local inflammation that alters the biliary anatomy and complicates the identification of the bile ducts. Indocyanine green facilitates the visualization of extrahepatic biliary structures, which could reduce the risk of biliary wound and shorten the operating time.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.

The systematic checking of the condition and function of a patient's CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM during the course of a surgical operation.

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 condition characterized by the formation of CALCULI and concretions in the hollow organs or ducts of the body. They occur most often in the gallbladder, kidney, and lower urinary tract.

Surgical removal of the GALLBLADDER.
