Ileus of the small intestine caused by a lost gallstone! A late complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy



Ileus of the small intestine caused by a lost gallstone! A late complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy



Der Chirurg; Zeitschrift für Alle Gebiete der Operativen Medizen 66(4): 443-445



Lost gallstones in the peritoneal cavity following laparoscopic cholecystectomy might cause late complications. The case presented documents a small-bowel obstruction caused by a lost gallstone (phi 5 cm) 3 months after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Laparotomy and small-bowel resection were performed. Another 3 months later a second laparotomy was necessary because of adhesions.
