Intracholecystic versus Intravenous Indocyanine Green (ICG) Injection for Biliary Anatomy Evaluation by Fluorescent Cholangiography during Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Case-Control Study.

J Clin Med 2022 Jun 17;11(12). Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Surgical Sciences, Sapienza University of Rome, 00161 Rome, Italy.

(1) Background: Fluorescence cholangiography has been proposed as a method for improving the visualization and identification of extrahepatic biliary anatomy in order to possibly reduce injuries and related complications. The most common method of indocyanine green (ICG) administration is the intravenous route, whereas evidence on direct ICG injection into the gallbladder is still quite limited. We aimed to compare the two different methods of ICG administration in terms of the visualization of extrahepatic biliary anatomy during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), analyzing differences in the time of visualization, as well as the efficacy, advantages, and disadvantages of both modalities.

Optimal timing of laparoscopic cholecystectomy post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiography and common bile duct clearance: A prospective observational study.

J Minim Access Surg 2022 Jul-Sep;18(3):438-442

Department of General Surgery, Seth GSMC and KEM Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Background: The treatment of patients with cholelithiasis with common bile duct (CBD) stones is CBD clearance with cholecystectomy. While traditional teachings advocate waiting for 4-6-week post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERCP) with CBD clearance, recent studies favour an early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Hence, this study was conducted to evaluate the optimal timing of LC post-ERCP. Read More

Are Residents Able to Perform a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy with Acceptable Outcomes When the Attending Is Not Scrubbed?

J Am Coll Surg 2022 Jul 3;235(1):60-68. Epub 2022 May 3.

From the Department of Surgery (Tonelli, Bunn, Kulshrestha, Cohn, Luchette, Baker), Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL.

Background: Recent socioeconomic pressures in healthcare and work hour resections have limited opportunities for resident autonomy and independent decision-making. We sought to evaluate whether contemporary senior residents are being given the opportunity to operate independently and whether patient outcomes are affected when the attending is not directly involved in an operation.

Study Design: The VA Surgical Quality Improvement Program (VASQIP) Database was queried to identify patients undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy between 2004 and 2019. Read More
