Post Cholecystectomy Stump Calculus Cholecystitis with Completion Cholecystectomy –A Rare Case Report
Keywords:Cholecystectomy, case, anatomy
Cholecystectomy is the most common method of choice for treating symptomatic gall stones. It can either be performed laproscopically or by open cholecystectomy. Partial cholecystectomy is usually done whenever there is difficulty in performing total cholecystectomy due to various reasons such as acute attack with adhesions, fibrosis, in view of preventing bile duct and vascular injuries, variations in anatomy which lead to bile duct remnant which can cause post cholecystectomy syndrome. After a partial or subtotal cholecystectomy, symptoms may recur from pathology in the gallbladder remnant. When this occurs, a completion cholecystectomy is required as treatment of choice. We here report a case of a patient with stump cholecystitis in a gallbladder remnant to demonstrate open completion cholecystectomy.
