Perioperative outcomes of the patients treated using laparoscopic cholecystectomy after emergent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography for bile duct stones: Does timing matter?

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2020 May;26(3):396-404

Department of General Surgery, University of Health Sciences Gülhane Training and Research Hospital, Ankara-Turkey.

Background: There is no consensus on the optimal timing for laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) after emergent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) for suspected choledocholithiasis. Although certain data suggest that an early interval or single-stage treatment by LC, together with laparoscopic bile duct exploration, has more favorable outcomes, delayed LC is most often preferred as the standard treatment of patients with gallstones and choledocholithiasis following ERCP due to lack of experience, necessary instrumentation, or organizational restrictions. This study aims to compare the effects of different time intervals between ERCP and LC on perioperative outcomes. Read More

Simultaneous surgical treatment tactics of acute destructive cholecystitis combined with choledocholithiasis: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2020 May 12;70:230-233. Epub 2020 May 12.

Department of Surgery, Asfendiyarov Kazakh National Medical University, 050012 Almaty, Kazakhstan; City Clinical Hospital No. 4, 050054 Almaty, Kazakhstan.

Introduction: The widespread development of minimally invasive treatment methods have expanded the choices and options available to surgeons to manage patients suffering from cholelithiasis and its complications, including choledocholithiasis. As new surgical strategies are developed and become widely available, there is an ongoing debate as to which surgical strategies are optimal for the management of acute cholecystitis and concomitant choledocholithiasis. The treatment of patients in this category should be carried out according to clear criteria, taking into consideration the patient's condition, concomitant diseases, the size of calculi in the common bile duct as well as the resources of the medical institution.

An Alternative Technique in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomies: Removal Without a Specimen Bag.

Cureus 2020 Apr 12;12(4):e7655. Epub 2020 Apr 12.

General Surgery, St. Michael's Medical Center, Newark, USA.

The use of specimen retrieval bags in elective laparoscopic cholecystectomies remains a customary practice intended to reduce surgical site infections. The lack of supporting evidence suggests that specimen bags may not be necessary. Thus, we present an alternative approach without the use of disposable instruments to reduce excessive healthcare costs while maintaining comparable surgical outcomes. Read More

Reducing prophylactic antibiotics use in laparoscopic cholecystectomy and liver resections.

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2020 May 8. Epub 2020 May 8.

Department of Infectious Diseases, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and liver resections are commonly performed surgical procedures which require no or less (cefazolin only) antimicrobial prophylaxis respectively in light of recent evidence. To assess the validity of this data in the local context and increase compliance to such regimens, a multi-modal intervention including, changes to hospital antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines, departmental emphasis, IT aids (involving the creation of order templates within our electronic medical system) and physical aids (in the form of cards given to junior staff) was implemented. Results comparing a 6-month preintervention period (January 2018 to June 2018) showed no significant increase in 30-day hospital readmission rates (P = 0. Read More

What are the risk factors of conversion from total cholecystectomy to bailout surgery?

Surg Endosc 2020 May 11. Epub 2020 May 11.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Tokyo Medical University Ibaraki Medical Center, 3-20-1 Chuo, Ami, Ibaraki, 300-0395, Japan.

Background: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is regarded as the first choice for patients with gallbladder diseases, but biliary injury (BDI) still poses serious risks upon implementation of LC. Recently, bailout surgery (BOS; partial cholecystectomy or subtotal cholecystectomy) has been proposed to avoid not only BDI but also major vessels injuries. In this retrospective study, we evaluated the preoperative and perioperative risk factors regarding conversion from total cholecystectomy (TC) to BOS. Read More
