Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.Factor XII: Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.Ellagic Acid: A fused four ring compound occurring free or combined in galls. Isolated from the kino of Eucalyptus maculata Hook and E. Hemipholia F. Muell.

Right bundle branch block and coved-type ST-segment elevation mimicked by acute cholecystitis. (1/109)

A 69-year-old woman had acute cholecystitis that mimicked right bundle branch block with coved-type ST-segment elevation in the precordial electrocardiogram leads (Brugada-type ST shift). The patient did not have obvious heart disease, syncope, or a family history of sudden death. The coved-type ST-segment elevation disappeared as the acute inflammation subsided. Intravenous administration of pilsicainide, a pure sodium channel blocker, could reproduce the Brugada-type ST shift. This is the first report of the Brugada-type ST shift occurring in association with acute cholecystitis.  (+info)

Clinical predictors of severe gallbladder complications in acute acalculous cholecystitis. (2/109)

AIM: To evaluate the relationship between clinical information (including age, laboratory data, and sonographic findings) and severe complications, such as gangrene, perforation, or abscess, in patients with acute acalculous cholecystitis (AAC). METHODS: The medical records of patients hospitalized from January 1997 to December 2002 with a diagnosis of acute cholecystitis were retrospectively reviewed to find those with AAC, confirmed at operation or by histologic examination. Data collected included age, sex, white blood cell count, AST, total bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, bacteriology, mortality, and sonographic findings. The sonographic findings were recorded on a 3-point scale with 1 point each for gallbladder distention, gallbladder wall thickness >3.5 mm, and sludge. The patients were divided into 2 groups based on the presence (group A) or absence (group B) of severe gallbladder complications, defined as perforation, gangrene, or abscess. RESULTS: There were 52 cases of AAC, accounting for 3.7% of all cases of acute cholecystitis. Males predominated. Most patients were diagnosed by ultrasonography (48 of 52) or computed tomography (17 of 52). Severe gallbladder complications were present in 27 patients (52%, group A) and absent in 25 (group B). Six patients died with a mortality of 12%. Four of the 6 who died were in group A. Patients in group A were significantly older than those in group B (mean 60.88 y vs. 54.12 y, P=0.04) and had a significantly higher white blood cell count (mean 15,885.19 vs. 9,948.40, P=0.0005). All the 6 patients who died had normal white blood cell counts with an elevated percentage of band forms. The most commonly cultured bacteria in both blood and bile were E. coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. The cumulative sonographic points did not reliably distinguish between groups A and B, even though group A tended to have more points. CONCLUSION: Older patients with a high white cell count are more likely to have severe gallbladder complications. In these patients, earlier surgical intervention should be considered if the sonographic findings support the diagnosis of AAC.  (+info)

Acute cholecystitis and severe ischemic cardiac disease: is laparoscopy indicated? (3/109)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopy in patients with poor cardiac function has been the subject of controversy and is considered by many surgeons a relative contraindication. METHODS: We report the case of a patient who presented with acute cholecystitis and choledocholithiasis concurrent with unstable angina. Our experience in laparoscopic management of patients with calculous biliary disease and severe coronary artery disease is examined. RESULTS: The patient was managed by coronary angioplasty and stenting immediately followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy and common bile duct exploration under close invasive hemodynamic monitoring and low-pressure pneumoperitoneum. Between 1996 and 2001, 39 patients with coronary artery disease and an ASA class of III or IV underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Eight of these patients (20.5%) had common bile duct stones necessitating laparoscopic common bile duct exploration. No conversions were necessary, and no major morbidity or mortalities occurred. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy and common bile duct exploration can be safely performed in patients with severe ischemic cardiac disease under close hemodynamic monitoring and a low-pressure pneumoperitoneum (10 to 12 mm Hg).  (+info)

Percutaneous cholecystostomy for the treatment of acute cholecystitis in the critically ill and elderly. (4/109)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical efficacy and outcomes of percutaneous cholecystostomy as an alternative treatment option for elderly and critically ill patients who have acute cholecystitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The medical records of patients who underwent emergency percutaneous cholecystostomy at the North District Hospital, Hong Kong from September 1999 to July 2002 were reviewed. Indications for the procedure, patient demographics, and other clinical details were recorded. RESULTS: A total of 25 patients (10 male, 15 female) with a median age of 81 years (range, 39-97 years) presented with acute cholecystitis and underwent percutaneous cholecystostomy with ultrasound guidance. Two patients required emergency cholecystectomy on day 1 after the procedures because of deteriorating conditions. The rest of the patients clinically improved after drainage. There was no major periprocedural complication, and four patients had their catheter accidentally dislodged but did not require re-insertion. There were five in-patient mortalities, although the majority of these deaths were from unrelated illness. Subsequently, only six patients underwent elective cholecystectomy, one open and five laparoscopic. Two patients were offered percutaneous endoscopic cholecystolithotripsy, one defaulted and the other could not tolerate the procedure. Eleven patients declined further intervention due to the high surgical risks, three of these patients developed biliary symptoms, one had acute cholecystitis, and the other two had cholangitis. The rest of patients had no symptoms related to the gallstones. The median follow-up period was 81 weeks (range, 27-162 weeks). CONCLUSION: Percutaneous cholecystostomy is a viable treatment option for elderly and critically ill patients presenting with acute cholecystitis. It has a high success rate with minimal procedure-related complications. Elective cholecystostomy is the treatment of choice for low-risk patients after the initial acute cholecystitis.  (+info)

Gangrenous cholecystitis in the decade before and after the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. (5/109)

BACKGROUND: Gangrenous cholecystitis is a severe form of acute cholecystitis with high morbidity. This study investigate the outcomes for patients undergoing cholecystectomy for gangrenous cholecystitis in the decade before and after the introduction of laparoscopic technology at our institution. METHODS: From 1982 to 2002, all patients undergoing cholecystectomy for gangrenous cholecystitis were prospectively entered into a database. Demographic data, method of surgery, and outcome variables were assessed and compared over time. RESULTS: Cholecystectomy was performed to treat gangrenous cholecystitis in 238 patients (mean age, 54 years). From 1982 to 1992, 98 patients underwent cholecystectomy for gangrenous cholecystitis, and from 1992 to 2002, 140 patients underwent the procedure. Ninety-seven patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and 33 patients (34%) required conversion. The open and laparoscopic cholecystectomy group differed in the number of intensive care unit admissions (13% vs. 5%, P < 0.05), overall length of hospital stay (10 vs. 5.7 days, P < 0.001) and rate of intraabdominal abscesses (8% vs. 0.7%). CONCLUSION: Gangrenous cholecystitis remains a disease with high morbidity. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy shortened hospital stay and can be offered without increasing morbidity. Methods to decrease intraabdominal abscess formation in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy for gangrenous cholecystitis are needed.  (+info)

Laparoscopic derotation and cholecystectomy for torsion gallbladder. (6/109)

Torsion of the gallbladder is an unusual cause of gangrenous cholecystitis. Even with the advent of recent radiological imaging modalities, the preoperative diagnosis of this entity remains elusive. Herein, we present a case of gallbladder torsion in a 76-year-old lady who successfully underwent laparoscopic derotation and cholecystectomy.  (+info)

Risk factors of acute cholecystitis after endoscopic common bile duct stone removal. (7/109)

AIM: To evaluate the risk factors of acute cholecystitis after endoscopic common bile duct (CBD) stone removal. METHODS: A total 100 of patients who underwent endoscopic CBD stone removal with gallbladder (GB) in situ without subsequent cholecystectomy from January 2000 to July 2004 were evaluated retrospectively. The following factors were considered while evaluating risk factors for the development of acute cholecystitis: age, gender, serum bilirubin level, GB wall thickening, cystic duct patency, presence of a GB stone, CBD diameter, residual stone, lithotripsy, juxtapapillary diverticulum, presence of liver cirrhosis or diabetes mellitus, a presenting illness of cholangitis or pancreatitis, and procedure-related complications. RESULTS: During a mean 18-mo follow-up, 28 (28%) patients developed biliary symptoms; 17 (17%) acute cholecystitis and 13 (13%) CBD stone recurrence. Of patients with acute cholecystitis, 15 (88.2%) received laparoscopic cholecystectomy and 2 (11.8%) open cholecystectomy. All recurrent CBD stones were successfully removed endoscopically. The mean time elapse to acute cholecystitis was 10.2 mo (1-37 mo) and that to recurrent CBD stone was 18.4 mo. Of the 17 patients who received cholecystectomy, 2 (11.8%) developed recurrent CBD stones after cholecystectomy. By multivariate analysis, a serum total bilirubin level of <1.3 mg/dL and a CBD diameter of <11 mm at the time of stone removal were found to predict the development of acute cholecystitis. CONCLUSION: After CBD stone removal, there is no need for routine prophylactic cholecystectomy. However, patients without a dilated bile duct (<11 mm) and jaundice (<1.3 mg/dL) at the time of CBD stone removal have a higher risk of acute cholecystitis and are possible candidates for prophylactic cholecystectomy.  (+info)

Open cholecystectomy for all patients in the era of laparoscopic surgery - a prospective cohort study. (8/109)

BACKGROUND: Open cholecystectomy through a small incision is an alternative to laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHODS: From 1 January 2002 through 31 December 2003, all operations upon the gallbladder in a district hospital with emergency admission and responsibility for surgical training were done as intended small-incision open cholecystectomy. RESULTS: 182 women and 90 men with a median age of 56 (interquartile range 45 to 68 years) underwent cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallbladder disease, 170 as elective and 102 as emergency cases. Trainee surgeons assisted by consultants or registrars having passed an examination for open cholecystectomy performed surgery in 194 cases (71%). The common bile duct was explored in 52 patients. Total postoperative morbidity was six percent. Median postoperative stay was one day and mean total (pre- and postoperative) hospital stay 3.1 days. 32 operations (12%) were done as day surgery procedures. Nationally in Sweden in 2002, mean total hospital stay was 4.4 days, and 13% of all cholecystectomies were performed on an outpatient basis. CONCLUSION: Open, small-incision cholecystectomy for all patients is compatible with short hospital stay, evidence-based gall-bladder surgery, and training of surgical residents.  (+info)

Objective: To assess the outcome of optimal timing of early laparoscopic cholecystectomy in cases of acute calculous cholecystitis. Material and methods: This is a descriptive case series conducted in Shaukat Omer Memorial (Fauji Foundation) Hospital and Hill-Park General Hospital Karachi, from April 2010 to November 2011. Clinical records of 164 patients who underwent early laparoscopic cholecystectomy in acute calculous cholecystitis were retrieved and categorized into two groups according to the timing of surgery from the onset of symptoms (A, who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 72 hours; B, who had laparoscopic cholecystectomy after 72 hours). Primary Outcomes were conversion to open procedure, postoperative complications and length of hospital stay. The SPSS version 11 was utilized for data analyses. Chi-square test was used to assess qualitative and unpaired Student t test was employed for quantitative data. A value of p | 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: A total of
Acute cholecystitis. Acute Cholecystitis refers to sudden onset of severe abdominal pain which is caused by inflammation or infection of the lining of gall-bladder. There may be a number of causes that can lead to infection of gall-bladder, but the major cause that can lead to gall-bladder pain and infection is presence of stones. The pain due to acute Cholecystitis is in the upper right portion of body and trunk region. The first bout of pain due to acute Cholecystitis may not be very severe but if left untreated, the pain gets more and more severe with every passing episode. Initially this pain is very intermittent and often continues as being unnoticed. In these cases the only option left is surgery.. How can differentiate the pain of Cholecystitis from other sources of upper abdominal pain?. There may be a number of causes that may lead to upper abdominal pain, like liver issue, disorders of stomach and esophagus and of the bile tracts but a few features of Cholecystitis may help you in ...

Operations were performed on 1166 patients with acute cholecystitis in a group of surgical hospitals of the Novgorod region in the period from 1983 till 1986. Sixty eight of them died (5.8%). Among the immediate causes of death the first place is occupied by purulent complications, the second place -- by acute cardiovascular insufficiency. It is stressed that elderly and senile patients prevailed among those who died after operations for acute cholecystitis (83.8%). The role of timely admission to the hospital and early operations of patients with acute cholecystitis in getting favourable results is stressed.
RADIOLOGY: HEPATOBILIARY: Case# 100: CHOLECYSTITIS (CT&US). Right abdominal pain with abnormal sonogram of the gallbladder. There is a layering density present in the gallbladder with apparent discontinuation in the gallbladder wall. Pericholecystic fluid is present with free intraperitoneal fluid around the liver also. No air is present in the gallbladder. Wispy infiltrative changes are present in the adjacent intraperitoneal fat consistent with inflammation. Acute cholecystitis, or inflammation of the gallbladder, can be classified as calculous (associated with gallstones) or acalculous. Gangrenous cholecystitis is a rare form of acute cholecystitis which is often indistinguishable from acute cholecystitis. The mortality rate of gangrenous cholecystitis is 22% while the mortality rate for acute cholecystitis is only around 1 to 6%. Symptoms associated with the onset of acute cholecystitis include progressive right upper quadrant or epigastric pain, mild fever, anorexia, tachycardia, diaphoresis,

INTRODUCTION: According to the Tokyo guidelines, cholecystitis is classified into three categories (Grade I, II, III) depending on its severity. The guideline recommends some therapeutic options for each categories. The guideline notes early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) or gallbladder drainage (PTGBD) is required for grade II cholecystitis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the risk factors for the difficulty of the LC in the Grade II cholecystitis.. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Medical records since 2010 to 2015, were retrospectively reviewed. A total of 98 Grade II cholecystitis patients who underwent LC were enrolled in this study, including patients converted to open surgery. The ...
Prophylactic cholecystectomy has been recommended in patients who have diabetes and silent gallstones because of the reports of increased mortality resulting from acute cholecystitis in such patients. To assess recent mortality rates, we reviewed the course of acute cholecystitis in patients hospitalized between 1960 and 1981 at one hospital. Death occurred in 3 of 46 patients with diabetes and in 7 of 263 patients without the disease (p = 0.55). The age-adjusted estimate of the relative risk for death was 2.2 (95% confidence interval, 0.5 to 9.4) for diabetic compared with nondiabetic patients. All 3 diabetic patients who died had been diagnosed as having diabetes within 5 years of death, and only one had been taking insulin. Patients who had elevated blood urea nitrogen levels ( , 20 mg/dL) were found to have an increased mortality rate when compared with patients with normal levels (27% compared with 2%; p , 0.001). Results were similar for the outcome of serious complications. These results ...

INTRODUCTION Common bile duct (CBD) stones are found in near 10% of patients undergoing elective laparoscopic surgery for symptomatic gallstone disease. For these patients laparoscopic trans-cystic exploration of the common duct (LTCE) with basket catheters has proved to be a safe and effective method to obtain CBD clearance. The occurrence of CBD stones ranges from 10 to 20% in patients presenting with acute cholecystitis (AC) but in this setting little is known about the feasibility and the effectiveness of LTCE as part of a single-stage laparoscopic procedure.. METHODS AND PROCEDURES We report the results of a prospective study based on a "laparoscopy first" policy for patients with gallstone disease and CBD stones. The study, ...
Squamous cell carcinoma of the gallbladder is rare and constitutes only 0.5-3% of all malignancies of this organ. Most of the reported cases have had a component of adenocarcinoma. We report a 70-year-old man who presented with acute onset right upper quadrant pain. He operated on based on a presumptive diagnosis of acute cholecystitis according to clinical and ultrasonographic findings. Histopathological examination of the infiltrating mass of the gallbladder revealed well differentiated keratinized squamous cell carcinoma invading full wall thickness. Thorough evaluations revealed no other primary site for the tumor. Pure primary squamous cell carcinoma of the gallbladder is rarely reported. Clinicians and pathologists must be aware of its vague clinical presentations.

EUS-guided gallbladder drainage was performed with a linear-array echoendoscope. The initial puncture was performed at the antrum of the stomach or bulb of the duodenum and was chosen to access the gallbladder body or neck and avoid visible vessels. After removal of the needle, a 6F or 7F bougie were inserted and then removed to dilate the tract. Afterward, nasobiliary drainage tube or stent was placed ...
Results A total of 95 523 patients were selected. After matching the 3 groups based on propensity scores, patients who underwent surgery during days 2 through 5 and days 6 through 10 had increasingly worse outcomes when compared with those undergoing surgery on days 0 through 1. The odds of mortality were 1.26 (95% CI, 1.00-1.58) and 1.93 (95% CI, 1.38-2.68), and the odds of postoperative infections were 0.88 (95% CI, 0.69-1.12) and 1.53 (95% CI, 1.05-2.23) for days 2 through 5 and days 6 through 10, respectively. Adjusted mean hospital cost increased from $8974 (days 0-1) to $17 745 (days 6-10). Analysis by each incremental day revealed the optimal time of surgery to be within the first 48 hours of presentation. ...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the role of ultrasound-guided percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) regarding complications and outcome in the management of acute cholecystitis in patients high risk for surgery and anaesthesia and not responding to conservative management. STUDY DESIGN: Observational case series. PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY: The study was carried out at The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, from January 2003 to December 2007. METHODOLOGY: The study included patients admitted with acute cholecystitis considered unfit for immediate surgery but not responding to conservative management. Percutaneous cholecystostomy was conducted under ultrasound guidance. The studied variables included patients demographics, co-morbid, ultrasound findings of biliary tree, indication for percutaneous cholecystostomy, its route, complication during or after procedure, patients clinical outcome (upto 48 hours) and 30 days follow-up. Those with incomplete medical record and follow-up were excluded. Data were
INTRODUCTION: laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the gold standard in the treatment of symptomatic gallstones. The common opinion about treatment of acute cholecystitis is initially conservative treatment due to preventing complications of inflamation and following laparoscopic cholecystectomy after 6- 8 weeks. However with the increase of laparoscopic experience in recent years, early laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become more common. METHODS: we aimed to compare the outcomes of the patients to whom we applied early or late cholecystectomy after hospitalization from the emergency department with the diagnosis of AC between March 2012-2015. RESULTS: we retrospectively reviewed the files of totally 66 patients in whom we performed early cholecystectomy (within the first 24 hours) (n: 33) and to whom we firstly administered conservative therapy and performed late cholecystectomy (after 6 to 8 weeks) (n: 33) after hospitalization from the emergency department with the diagnosis of acute
The pathogenesis of cholecystitis is not clearly understood but it appears that gallstone obstruction (calculous cholecystitis) leads to distension of the gallbladder. This disrupts the blood flow and lymphatic drainage resulting in inflammation, which leads to ischemia (tissue injury) and eventually necrosis (tissue death) if left untreated.. Another possible mechanism is that damage of the gallbladder mucosa releases phospholipase which then interacts with the lecithin in the bile, converting it to lysolecithin. This compound is a known toxin which may cause inflammation of the gallbladder (chemically induced).. It is likely that both these mechanisms occur in acute calculous cholecystitis.. Chronic cholecystitis is often a result of repeated bouts of acute cholecystitis although it may arise with no previous episodes of acute cholecystitis.. ...
Ultrasound (US) is the preferred imaging examination for the diagnosis of acute cholecystitis and is the first method used when the clinical presentation is suggestive of biliary pathology. The main findings of acute calculous cholecystitis on US include in addition to the presence of stones: distension of the gallbladder lumen, gallbladder wall thickening, a positive US Murphy sign, pericholecystic fluid [5, 6] and a hyperemic wall upon evaluation with Color Doppler [7, 8].. Ultrasound has the best sensitivity and specificity for evaluating patients with suspected gallstones [9]. As reported in the literature [10], some ultrasonographic findings are more strongly associated with acute cholecystitis than others: a positive Murphys sign (pain is provoked by either the transducer or the sonographers palpation under guidance, in the exact area of the gallbladder) is reported to have sensitivity as high as 88% [11, 12].

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is considered the gold standard for the management of acute cholecystitis but controversy surrounds the timings of the surgery. Studies are available favouring both early and delayed laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The objective of this study was to compare early versus delayed laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis. METHODS: This quasi-experimental study included 180 patients irrespective of their age and sex presented at department of Surgery, Lahore General Hospital between January to December 2014 with a diagnosis of acute cholecystitis were assigned randomly to early laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 24 h of admission or to initial conservative treatment followed by delayed laparoscopic cholecystectomy, 6-12 weeks later ...

Treatment for cholecystitis will depend on your symptoms and your general health. People who have gallstones but dont have any symptoms may need no treatment. For mild cases, treatment includes bowel rest, fluids and antibiotics given through a vein, and pain medicine. The main treatment for acute cholecystitis is surgery to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy). Often this surgery can be done through small incisions in the abdomen (laparoscopic cholecystectomy), but sometimes it requires a more extensive operation. Your doctor may try to reduce swelling and irritation in the gallbladder before removing it. Sometimes acute cholecystitis is caused by one or more gallstones getting stuck in the main tube leading to the intestine, called the common bile duct. Treatment may involve an endoscopic procedure (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, or ERCP) to remove the stones in the common bile duct before the gallbladder is removed. In rare cases of chronic cholecystitis, you may also ...

The development of chronic cholecystitis is conditioned, as a rule, by the bacterial flora, the penetration of which into the bile cyst happens by the enterogenous, hematogenous or lymphogenous ways [1]. The chronic inflammation at the chronic cholecystitis long course results in the metabolic and immune status disorders. In spite of the fact that cytokines are not specific factors of inflammation the determination of their concentration in blood gives the information about functional activity of various types of immunocompetent cells, the inflammatory process severity and disease prognostication [6]. The connection between the immune state and metabolic syndrome (MS), which often takes course against the background of chronic cholecystitis, is widely discussed in literature. At that, the data got by different investigators are rather contradictory [10]. Up to the present day the immunological aspects at the MS and chronic cholecystitis (CC) comorbid course remain one of the poorly studied ...

BACKGROUND: Although several investigators have reported that inflammation-based prognostic scores can predict disease severity in patients with various inflammatory diseases, whether or not these scores are associated with disease severity in patients with acute cholecystitis (AC) has not yet been fully clarified. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two hundred and sixty-two patients with AC were reviewed retrospectively. We evaluated the correlations between demographic or clinical variables, including the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS), and the C-reactive protein/albumin (CRP/Alb) ratio, as well as the disease severity grade on the basis of the revised Tokyo guidelines ...
The management of gallstone disease in the elderly and critically ill is often more challenging because these patients experience a high incidence of cholelithiasis complications [24], and PC has been described as a safe alternative treatment option for AC in elderly or critically ill patients [1, 3, 13, 17]. Our findings confirm that most patients who undergo PC were elderly or critically ill. For instance, the proportion of PC patients aged 70 years or older was significantly higher than the proportion of CCS patients in this age group (61.52% for PC vs. 25.31% for CCS, p , 0.001) (Table 1). Moreover, the proportion of patients with a CCI score of 1 or more was higher among the patients who underwent PC than that among the patients who underwent CCS (50.88% for PC vs. 30.16% for CCS, p , 0.001), and the proportion of patients who underwent PC with AC cholelithiasis complications was higher than the proportion of CCS patients (67.42% for PC vs. 32.61% for CCS, p , 0.001) (Table 1)..

Many patients with gallstones can be managed expectantly. Generally, only persons with symptoms related to the presence of gallstones (e.g., steady, nonparoxysmal pain lasting four to six hours located in the upper abdomen) or complications (such as acute cholecystitis or gallstone pancreatitis) warrant surgical intervention. Biliary pain is alleviated by cholecystectomy in the majority of cases. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is considered the most cost-effective management strategy in the treatment of symptomatic gallstones. Medical management strategies are mostly palliative and are not widely supported. Patients with longer-lasting biliary pain, in combination with abdominal tenderness, fever, and/or leukocytosis, require an ultrasound evaluation to help establish a diagnosis of acute cholecystitis. Once a patient is diagnosed, having cholecystectomy early in the course of the disease can significantly reduce the hospital stay.

Gallstones are estimated to occur in over 20% of Americans annually. Although the majority of these patients are asymptomatic, biliary colic develops in 1-4% of these individuals each year, and acute cholecystitis develops in approximately 20% of these patients [1].. The standard evaluation consists of a history and physical examination, laboratory analysis, and diagnostic imaging. Isolated clinical and laboratory findings are neither sensitive nor specific, with the classic triad of right upper quadrant pain, fever, and leukocytosis occurring in a minority of these cases [2].. The current gold standard for diagnosis is now considered to be a positive hepatobiliary imino-diacetic acid scan (HIDA). Ultrasonographic evidence is also used to confirm this diagnosis, and has a sensitivity of approximately 87% and a specificity of approximately 82% [3]. Because of its ready availability and high diagnostic accuracy, ultrasound is generally considered the initial test of choice for the evaluation of ...

There were no ultrasound machines. Believe it or not, we would diagnose acute cholecystitis by history and physical examination alone. The only diagnostic tests we had were oral cholecystogram (OCG) and intravenous cholangiogram (IVC). For OCG, pills were taken the night before the test. If the cystic duct was patent, iodinated contrast would appear in the gallbladder and stones could be seen. Non-visualization of the gallbladder meant either the cystic duct was blocked or the pills were not absorbed (presumably due to inflammation, not necessarily of the GB) or the patient forgot to take the pills. The test was useless in acutely presenting patients. IVC was similar except the contrast was given intravenously. The common bile duct could be seen faintly unless the patient was jaundiced.

Introduction: Although both conditions are very common, concomitance of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute has never been reported. In this paper, we present a case of acute calculous cholecystitis with perforated acute appendicitis. Case Report: A 66-year-old female presented with a four-day history of right side abdominal pain associated with nausea, pyrexic and tachycardia (pulse rate 105 beats per minute). An ultrasound of her abdomen and pelvis revealed an inflamed, thick-walled gallbladder with evidence of multiple small gallstones. Her appendix could not be visualized. A diagnostic +/- therapeutic laparoscopy was performed, which revealed an inflamed gallbladder and fluid collection in right iliac fossa with foul smelling. A combined laparoscopic cholecystectomy with open appendectomy was performed. Intraoperatively perforated appendix was found. Postoperative follow-up was uneventful and the patient was free of complaint two weeks later. Conclusion: While most of the abdominal

Trichac in his prospective trial addressed the safety and the advantages of the three port technique in terms of analgesia requirement [11], though he found no improvement in postoperative hospital stay, his work and other published series on this technique were carried out only on elective patients. In fact the procedure was practiced on cases of acute cholecystitis as well but not reported [16]. In this retrospective single centre non randomised review we compared the safety and the advantages of three-port LC in AC and CC in a large comparative study.. When performed on acute and chronic cholecystitis the three-port technique was found to be safe; there were no common bile duct injuries or deaths in either group. Port site bleeding, ...
