The authors used the microangiography to study the vascularization of the human gallbladder in normal and pathological cases. It was particularly observed the relation between the vascular changes in the chronic cholecystitis and the results obtained through the oral cholecystography.

    With the advent of mini-instruments, laparoscopic cholecystectomies have been performed with two or three trocars instead of the standard four ports. However, removal of the gallbladder is a difficult aspect with these microlaparoscopic techniques. To remove the gallbladder through the 11-mm...
