Laparoscopic Perforated Cholecystectomy

November 5, 2009 6:10 am | Comments

What is new in cholecystectomy today - the bread and butter of general surgery? Can a cholecystectomy be performed always laparoscopically? Probably not. Can there be no iatrogenic injuries and no mortality? Certainly not. If this is the picture you would see when you put your first port in, in a 74 years old patient in near arrest due to sepsis and respiratory failure how many of you would continue laparoscopically and when and why would you go the good old days of open surgery? Would a large inflammatory mass in the right upper quadrant, barely allowing for insertion of a trocar and certainly not living much room for other ports put you off from laparoscopic surgery? What are the mortality, morbidity and recovery with open surgery in such settings? This case: a 74 years old man on anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation, presents with acute cholecystitis and sepsis; after a brief improvement with initial conservative management with rehydration, antibiotics and cardiology review for reversal of Warfarin, 48 hours later he deteriorates rapidly and is taken to surgery for cholecystectomy.
