- Feasibility and safety of day care laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a developing country. Bal, S.; Reddy, L.G.S.; Parshad, R.; Guleria, R.; Kashyap, L. // Postgraduate Medical Journal;May2003, Vol. 79 Issue 931, p284
Background: Although day care laparoscopic cholecystectomy (DCLC) has been shown to be safe in centres with adequate infrastructure for day care surgery, its feasibility and safety in developing countries has never been studied. Because of differences in the quality of health care delivery,...
- Prospective comparison of ambulatory with inpatient laparoscopic cholecystectomy: outcome, patient preference and satisfaction. Sharma, A.; Hayden, J.D.; Reese, R.A.; Sedman, P.C.; Royston, C.M.S.; O’Boyle, C.J. // Ambulatory Surgery;Dec2004, Vol. 11 Issue 1/2, p23

- Double Cystic Duct:A Rare Biliary Anomaly Encountered at Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. Shivhare, Rakesh; Sikora, Sadiq S. // Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques;Oct2002, Vol. 12 Issue 5, p391
Presents a case of double cystic duct that required conversion from laparoscopic to open cholecystecomy because transection of the common bile duct was suspected. Brief information on double cystic duct; Discussion and conclusion.
- Choledocholithiasis: Evolving Intraoperative Strategies. Ponsky, Jeffrey L.; Heniford, B. Todd; Gersin, Keith // American Surgeon;Mar2000, Vol. 66 Issue 3, p262
In the era of open cholecystectomy, common bile duct stones were approached by traditional choledocholithotomy. Retained or recurrent stones discovered after cholecystectomy were approached by endoscopic extraction techniques or repeat surgery. With the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy,...
