Good. But after TG18 there is no time interval for perform cholecystectomy. You must do it as soon as the patient has operative conditions

Acute calculous cholecystitis is an inflammation of the gallbladder wall, which is more or less associated with an infection of its content. Given the frequency of gallstones, we consider that 15% of the general population has lithiasis, which represents 90% of the causes of acute cholecystitis.
After providing a clinical diagnosis and confirming it through several imaging and biology tests, the treatment for this emergency pathology can be decided upon.
The therapeutic decision can only be made after exploring the patient's background (age, co-morbidities, etc.), the severity of the clinical situation and the means available (laparoscopy, drainage, etc.).
The aim of this presentation is to outline the current recommendations for this pathology and to explain the conventional surgical treatment for acute cholecystitis through several videos.

This acute cholecsyitis is not a real hard case anatomicly.The dissection of calot triangle was done without diffucity.The length of cystic duct is enough to clip and the hartman pouch and cystic duct junction is well defined. So: in my opinion there is no Absulute indication for per-op choloncyography(concerning the anatomy).Except :percence of jaundice ,previous history of jaundice, chills,fever, pancreatitis, increased liver enzymes etc....

Early laparoscopic cholecystectomy is feasible and safe. Nowadays, it is an accepted treatment for patients suffering from acute cholecystitis. This video demonstrates a laparoscopic cholecystectomy with intraoperative cholangiography for acute cholecystitis in an obese patient.

C'est une excellente approche, en plus chez les patients obèses, l'adjonction d'un cinquième trocart dans la FID permet de refouler le colon et le grand épiploon qui ont souvent participé au plastron et ce après leur libération.\nMerci pour tout

Marvelous, dangerous, for me as a watcher, some semi blindly steps have been done, lucky patient and highly skilled surgeon. Thank you

Nicely done, convertion could have been a good option. Colangiography must be done in this case

Difficult case, in my opinion in this situation we must see the biliary tree to exclude complication, I miss a cholangiography

I prefer to convert such case because with such friable and fragile tissues you may endanger the patient's life with inevitable complications
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the gold standard for symptomatic cholecystolithiasis. Technical maturation and advances in instrumentation have enabled the application of this procedure for acute cholecystitis.
This video demonstrates the surgical approach to performing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy in an older male patient with acute cholecystitis and who has had a previous laparotomy for vascular surgery. The surgeon uses a French approach standing between the patient's legs while he optical trocar is placed supraumbilically, 3cm to the right of the midline in order to avoid the adhesions caused by the previous surgery.
An ischemic gallbladder with necrotic area and infundibular perforation was found.

If anybody is aware of a complex bile injury and hasn't enogh skills and experience to solve it laparoscopically or open, i believe that is much better don't convert and just drain and refer!!!!

Never go high up while doing posterior dissection. You may equally damage CHD and Right Hepatic duct. What about follow up of patient? Did patient developed stricture?

Me parece que hace una excesiva tracción del infundibulo y pierde el plano de disección...

Creo que utilizó el electrocauterio en una zona de mucho riesgo de lesionar.
por otra parte, seria buena idea realizar una colangiografia transoperatoria para localizar la zona dañada

I think good traction and good exposure, and starting with opening of calot's triangle are important prensibles to avoid such injury

In my personal practice I never use the hook with electricity to dissect this area, I strongly recommend the use of a peanut or a short piece of gauze in order to avoid lesions in the area

Good case to learn how careful we must be even for a colecystectomy.

Podría haberse mostrado en este caso la Colangiografia Intrahoperatoria para documentar y clasificar la lesión del hepático derecho??\n
