Laparoscopic intracorporeal ultrasound cystic duct length measurement

Abstract

The incidence of common bile duct injury remains high. Intracorporeal ultrasound mapping of cystic duct anatomy, prior to laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), may assist surgeons in avoiding common bile duct injuries. A technique for intraoperative intracorporeal predissection ultrasound imaging (IIPUI) of the cystic duct length was tested. During LC… (More)
