Early gallbladder carcinoma has a favorable outcome but Rokitansky–Aschoff sinus involvement is an adverse prognostic factor

The general impression about gallbladder carcinomas is that they are uniformly fatal; however, for the early forms, an entirely different picture indicating a very good prognosis is evolving from the

Hemorrhagic cholecystitis with rare imaging presentation: a case report and a lesson learned from neglected medication history of NSAIDs

A hemorrhagic cholecystitis case that failed to be differentiated from gallbladder cancer preoperatively owing to the neglected medication history of long term oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSIADs) intake is described, suggesting the importance of preoperative review of medication history and patient education on prescription drug abuse.

Incidental Gallbladder Cancer—Current Recommendations and Management Protocols

The term “incidental gallbladder cancer” (IGBC) includes patients detected during or after cholecystectomy as an intraoperative or histological surprise and selective use in high-risk patients (T3, T4, N1) should be considered in the setting of a clinical study.

Mirizzi syndrome and gallbladder cancer.

There was a higher incidence of GBC in Patients with Mirizzi syndrome than in patients with uncomplicated GSD, and there were no clinical features to differentiate these patients with GBC from those with Mirzzi syndrome alone, except that they were a decade older and had longer duration of symptoms.

A ‘middle path’ is adopted—between pessimistic nihilism of the West and aggressive radicalism of Japan—of management of management, i.e., extended cholecystectomy for early disease confined to the gallbladder and hepato‐dudodenal ligament and non‐surgical palliation for advanced disease.

adenocarcinoma of the gi ncidental Finding in Patients following laparoscopic s leeve g astrectomy and cholecystectomy

GB cancer is a rare finding in cholecystectomy specimens, and the incidence of this entity might be higher in obese older females owing to the higher incidence of cholelithiasis in these patients.

Incidental gallbladder cancer after cholecystectomy: 1990 to 2014

The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence and severity of iGBC in cholecystectomy procedures performed in the surgical department at the 4th Military Teaching Hospital in Wroclaw during the years 1990–2014, and found iG BC in 0.87% of cases, which is on a comparable scale to the world literature.

Surgical Treatment of Incidental Gallbladder Cancer Discovered During or Following Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Simple LC is appropriate for T1a patients with clear margin and unbroken gallbladder, whereas extended radical resection is recommended for patients with T1b or more advanced IGBC.

Routine histopathology for carcinoma in cholecystectomy specimens not evidence based: a systematic review

The histopathological finding of GBC after cholecystectomy appears to be a rare event, and the pre- and intraoperative sensitivity for this carcinoma is low.



Infliximab for the treatment of fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease.

Infliximab is an efficacious treatment for fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease and the most common adverse events for patients treated with infliximab were headache, abscess, upper respiratory tract infection, and fatigue.

Inapparent carcinoma of the gallbladder. An appraisal of a radical second operation after simple cholecystectomy.

It was concluded that a radical second operation should be carried out for pT2 or more advanced inapparent carcinoma, whereas follow-up without a second operation is recommended for p T1 cancer without positive margin.

Subclinical gallbladder carcinoma.

Early carcinoma of the gallbladder: An elusive disease

The only way to diagnose early carcinoma of the gallbladder is by early surgical treatment of patients with clinical features of benign biliary disease, and patients except four had associated gallstones.

Gallbladder carcinoma first diagnosed at microscopic examination of gallbladders removed for presumed benign disease.

Radical cholecystectomy including a wedge resection of liver tissue and dissection of the regional lymph nodes is recommended in all patients with inapparent gallbladder carcinomas.

Survival after surgery for cancer of the gallbladder

Patients with tumours limited to the muscularis and those with non‐infiltrative subserosal involvement are likely to have better survival and may have a chance of cure after extended cholecystectomy.

Carcinoma of gall bladder.

It was shown that the frequency of gallbladder cancer was 8.4% and cholelithiasis played a significant role in its etiology and no remarkable differences were observed in the clinical and biochemical findings between the benign and malignant disease ofgallbladder.

Anatomical limit of extended cholecystectomy for gallbladder carcinoma involving the neck of the gallbladder.

The results indicate that the neck of the gallbladder is anatomically close to the hepatic hilum including the right hepatic duct and portal vein and more extensive hepatectomy than extended cholecystectomy should be considered.

Retrospective analysis of 70 operations for gallbladder carcinoma

This study was conducted to clarify the prognostic factors affecting survival and appropriate surgical strategy based on depth of invasion of gallbladder carcinoma according to the pathological tumour node metastasis (pTNM) classification.
