Morpho-metric, tailor tape, laparoscopy, cholecystectomy, Maharashtra


Background: Variations in morphology and metrical values of Gall Bladder (GB) is quite common. These variations
are frequently observed during imaging and procedures like laparoscopy and cholecystectomy. The anatomical
variation of GB is essential to clinician.
Method: 48 adult cadavers were studied to evaluate the morphometric study of GB. The size and shape were
classified with percentage. The length and breadth were measured with tailors tape.
Results: 52.08% pear shaped, 10.4% flask shaped, 12.5% cylinder shaped, 6.25% hour glass shaped, 6.25% intra
hepatic, 2.08% left GB, 2.08% double GB were studied. The mean length of GB was 6.80 (±1.42), 2.82 (±0.78) was
mean breadth of GB, t test was 17.2 and p<0.01
Conclusion: The anatomic variations of GB and biliary tract are critical during surgical procedure. The present
study will certainly help surgeon to carry out surgeries without causing morbidity and mortality. Moreover these
variations will help the radiologist for proper reporting the diseases related to GB and biliary apparatus.
