Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) has been performed in patients with gallbladder stones without inflammation. Porcelain gallbladder is a rare finding of chronic cholecystitis that is characterized by extensive calcification of the gallbladder wall. Herein we describe our experience with SILC for porcelain gallbladder with a successful outcome. A 67-old-year woman was diagnosed with porcelain gallbladder. We performed SILC using a SILS Port and a 5-mm forceps through the umbilical incision. Because a small amount of the omentum around the gallbladder was left to facilitate grasping the fundus, a view of both the cystic artery and the cystic duct was easily obtained. The operative time and the intraoperative blood loss were 66 min and less than 1 mL, respectively. The patient was discharged 3 days after surgery and was satisfied with the cosmetic results. Our procedure may represent an alternative to conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy in patients with porcelain gallbladder.
