Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been accepted by the surgical community as the"standard of care" for the treatment of biliary disease. When compared toopen cholecystectomy, laparoscopic approaches do carry a higher complication rate forbiliary injury but offer many beneficial advantages in reduced postoperative pain andshorter recovery times. With the introduction of single incision approachesto cholecystectomy, it is important that the surgical community maintain similaroperative standards as these new techniques are introduced into clinical practice. Thisarticle will focus on the outcomes and complications of laparoscopic cholecystectomy aswell as ways to reduce these potential injuries. The role for intraoperativecholangiography will also be addressed. It will also analyze the available data regardingsingle incision cholecystectomy with regards to advantages and potential complicationsfrom this new and evolving operative technique.
