    A cholecystectomy is most commonly performed by inserting a tiny video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to see inside your abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors call this a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In some cases, one large incision may be used to remove the gallbladder. This is called an open. Occurrences of concerns in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy are infrequent, but include bleeding, infection, pneumonia, blood clots or heart problems. Unintended injury to adjacent structures such as the common bile duct or small bowel may occur and may require another surgical procedure to repair it.

    Edward G. Soltesz, David C. Brooks, in Encyclopedia of Gastroenterology, Cholecystectomy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has replaced the conventional open method as the gold standard for the treatment of symptomatic cholelithiasis, biliary dyskinesia, acalculous cholecystitis, and select patients with asymptomatic gallstones after several well-designed multicenter trials clearly.

    What are the benefits of laparoscopic cholecystectomy? Less discomfort than regular surgery. Shorter hospital stay, with a quicker recovery time compared to regular (open) surgery. Smaller scars than regular surgery. Call your doctor if you experience: Increasing pain and redness at an incision (cut) site. Fever higher than degrees. Cholecystectomies are one of the most common surgical procedures performed. Evidence of a cholecystectomy is often seen on imaging procedures with surgical clips in the gallbladder fossa and radiologists should be aware of possible complications.
