Minimally invasive approach of the most common complications after laparoscopic cholecystectomy

Minimally invasive approach of the most common complications after laparoscopic cholecystectomy

Annali Italiani di Chirurgia 76(3): 235-238

LC is now considered the gold standard in the treatment of cholelithiasis with a minimal incidence of complications, typically, bile peritoneum and hemoperitoneum. The Authors wished to verify the possibility of treating complications after LC with a minimally invasive approach. In 1100 LCs over 8 years, they treated 9 bile peritoneum and 4 hemoperitoneum. It was possible to treat all 13 patients with a minimally invasive approach with a complete resolution of the complication and with no further occurrences during the follow up. The Authors believe that it is possible to treat the majority of complications arising after LC with minimally invasive methods. Nevertheless, a very early diagnosis and the close cooperation of an Endoscopist and an Radiologist is necessary.
