Laparoscopic cholecystectomy - bile duct surgery
Gallstones are a particularly common pathology. They affect up to 10% of the population of the "western world". They are manifested by classic symptoms of biliary colic (pain under the right costal arch, especially after a meal) or are found accidentally during a systematic examination. In symptomatic cases, removal of the gallbladder is indicated because it reduces the rate of complications of gallstones (acute and chronic inflammation, as well as long-term development of malignancy), and patients without gallbladder live an undiminished quality of life. In gallbladder removal, the absolute GOLD STANDARD is a LAPAROSCOPIC, MINIMALLY INVASIVE APPROACH where the gallbladder is removed through 4 smaller incisions up to 12 mm in size. All of the above shortens the duration of the operation and speeds up postoperative recovery.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive method in abdominal surgery during which surgery is performed through multiple smaller incisions (5 to 15 mm) using long, narrow instruments and working trocars. It is most often used in operations on hernias (hernias) of the anterior abdominal wall and operations to remove the gallbladder, but it also has its place in more extensive procedures such as operations on the colon and small intestine and parenchymal organs of the abdominal cavity. To minimize tissue trauma, the great advantage it brings is the shortened time of many operations, faster postoperative recovery, and a better cosmetic results in terms of reducing scars. Because of all the above, patients return to their daily functions and habits faster.
