Bile leak risk after laparoscopic cholecystectomy

Complications of retained intraperitoneal calculi and biliary leak seem to be more common after laparoscopic than open cholecystectomy.

Abscess formation due to dropped gallstone after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Lost gallstones found in a hernial sac.

Spillage of bile and gallstones is not a rare event during laparoscopic cholecystectomy but lost stones that were found several months later in a hernia sac are reported.

The outcome of unretrieved gallstones in the peritoneal cavity during laparoscopic cholecystectomy

In most patients, unretrieved gallstones are of no consequence, but complications occur occasionally, so it is advisable to retrieve as many gallstones as possible during LC short of converting to a laparotomy.

Consequences of Lost Gallstones During Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Review Article

Every effort should be made to prevent gallbladder perforation; otherwise, they should be retrieved immediately during laparoscopy; in cases with multiple large spilled stones or infected bile, conversion to open surgery can be considered.

The spilled stone

Stone spillage has not always been considered an indication of conversion of laparoscopic cholecystectomy but is now accepted as a source of infrequent but severe complications that may require a reintervention for treatment.


A profile of patients most likely at risk from iatrogenic gall bladder perforation (IGBP) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy was developed using multivariate logistic regression analysis.

A meta-analysis of outcomes after routine aspiration of the gallbladder during cholecystectomy.

Patients undergoing ASP were less likely to have a gallbladder perforation, but this does not appear to translate into decreased loss of gallstones or infection rates, and there was no significant difference between techniques in blood loss from the liver bed.

Lovastatin-associated dermatomyositis.

The case of a 63-year-old woman who developed a muscular and cutaneous clinical picture consistent with dermatomyositis while taking lovastatin for hypercholesterolaemia and one year after diagnosis the patient was free of symptoms and the rash had completely resolved.



Intrapelvic calculi demonstrated in a patient after laparoscopic laser cholecystectomy: a case report.

A case report of a woman in whom calculi were incidentally found within the pelvis on a plain radiograph of the abdomen after she presented to the hospital with pancreatitis and initial confusion regarding the etiology of these calculi was solved.

CT findings after uncomplicated percutaneous laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

To investigate the postoperative pulmonary and abdominal findings following uncomplicated percutaneous laparoscopic cholecystectomy, 27 patients were studied by upper abdominal CT within 24 h of the

The value of postoperative ultrasound examination after laparoscopic laser cholecystectomy surgery.

Ultrasound examination of the asymptomatic patient postlaparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery is not of value for predicting complications in patients undergoing this procedure, and immediately post Laparoscopic CholecyStectomy surgery, 25% of patients will have small fluid collections, but will not develop complications.

Bile duct stones and laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

The latest report is a fair evaluation of the evidence now available, but the new studies recommended by the advisory group will require evaluation, and further information-for example, on the absorption and metabolism of aluminium-may emerge from other sources.
