Cholecystectomy, Abscess, bile duct


Cholelithiasis is one of the commonest disorders of GIT. Cholecystectomy was done traditionally by open
or conventional cholecystectomy. But now Laparoscopic approach is believed to be the gold standard
in treatment of calculous cholecystitis. Common problems encountered during Laparoscopic approach
are Difficult dissection due to distorted Anatomy, Infection at GB Fossa, Frozen Callot’s triangle [1],
hypervascularity. In this study we included 30 patients having complicated calculous cholecystitis who
went under laparoscopic cholecystectomy. They were assessed to determine the feasibility and safety of
laparoscopic approach in complicated calculous cholecystitis. e.g. Gall bladder Mucocele, Gall bladder
Empyema [2], Gangrenous changes in Gall bladder, Gall bladder Perforation, Common Bile Duct stones
along with Cholangitis /Pancreatitis. Early post-operative ambulation (within 1 to 2 days) along with a
lesser duration of post-operative hospitalisation, decrease chance of sepsis during post-operative period and
decrease in morbidity along with lesser complication rate can be achieved with laparoscopic cholecystectomy
in complicated calculus cholecystitis.
