Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) can be performed for different standard operations such as appendectomy and cholecystectomy. During laparoscopic cholecystectomy sometimes a cholangiography (marking the biliary tract with contrast agent) is necessary to identify and preserve relevant structures. The investigators want to evaluate feasibility of performing cholangiography during SILS cholecystectomy.

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...
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...
In patients with biliodigestive anastomosis direct cholangiography (ERC) is due to changed anatomy commonly not possible. The aim of the study is to test the feasibility to perform direct ...
Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography is a disturbing procedure for patients. TIVA with short-acting anesthetics such as propofol and remifentanil is characterized by hemodynamic stab...
The reason for this study is to see if a new radiologic technique called computerized tomographic cholangiography (CT cholangiography) could be helpful to demonstrate the bile ducts featur...
Intraoperative cholangiography involving the excretion of fluorescent indocyanine green (ICG) into the bile is used to determine biliary anatomy in laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). This study aimed ...
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the standard surgical treatment for patients with benign gallbladder disease. However, bile duct injury continues to be reported as a surgical complication. Intraoperat...
Though often only briefly described in the literature, there are clearly factors that have an influence on the fluorescence intensity, and thereby the usefulness of the technique. This article aims to...
Patients with gallstone pancreatitis (GP) or choledocholithiasis (CDL) may have common bile duct (CBD) stones that persist until cholangiography. The aim of this study is to evaluate pre-cholangiogram...
Data about single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) in locally advanced colorectal cancers are scarce. This study aimed to evaluate perioperative and shortterm oncologic outcomes of SILS in pT3-T4 ...
Presence or formation of GALLSTONES in the GALLBLADDER.
Presence or formation of GALLSTONES in the BILIARY TRACT, usually in the gallbladder (CHOLECYSTOLITHIASIS) or the common bile duct (CHOLEDOCHOLITHIASIS).
A water-soluble radiographic contrast media for cholecystography and intravenous cholangiography.
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.
Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
