Gallbladder removal by laparoscopy
author: doctor Kuznetsov MA
Cholecystectomy or removal of the gallbladder is a frequent operation, carried out for various reasons. First of all, it is the gallstones that accumulate in chronic calculous cholecystitis.
Gallstones occur because of a violation of cholesterol metabolism, bile pigments and bile acids. They can both clog the outflow in the gall bladder itself, and get stuck in its ducts, and also cause inflammation of the gallbladder walls.
Patients complain of sudden pain in the region of the liver right under the ribs, dyspepsia (bitter taste in the mouth, nausea and vomiting), as well as fever and chills. Most often, this happens when drinking alcohol, taking fatty or sharp foods.
Why remove the gallbladder
Crushing stones in the gall bladder is not effective for everyone. In chronic calculous cholecystitis, this procedure only works for a short time. Disturbed metabolism and chronic inflammation again lead to the formation of stones in the gallbladder. The only effective method for this disease is the removal of the gall bladder itself.
There are two main methods of removing the gallbladder: a knife (open cholecystectomy) and with the help of minimally invasive technologies - laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
The advantages of laparoscopy
- requires only four holes for surgery in return for a long suture reaching 20 centimeters;
- the consequences of the operation are less pronounced, the pain symptoms are smoothened, therefore stay in the hospital after surgery can be reduced to two days;
- due to the absence of incisions more than two centimeters, the risk of hernia and adhesions has been reduced;
Do not forget about the contraindications of laparoscopy. First of all, these are the spikes that formed during previous operations on the abdominal cavity. Laparoscope and auxiliary manipulators can damage the surrounding organs when injected into the joints. Spikes after laparoscopy are also possible.
Also, laparoscopy is not indicated for persons with respiratory diseases, in particular with pulmonary insufficiency. The fact is that when carrying out laparoscopy, a large amount of air is injected into the abdominal cavity, which further reduces the functional volume of the lungs by the diaphragm.
Before and after laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder
Before the operation, a diet and the whole complex of diagnostic tests are prescribed, and preparations are made for laparoscopy . The operation is performed under general anesthesia. During the operation, drainage to the site of the removed gallbladder is established. Sometimes there is a situation where an open cholecystectomy is required. This happens if the vessel is touched and bleeding starts, or it is impossible to remove the gallbladder due to its adhesions to surrounding tissues. The patient is informed before the operation of such cases.
After the operation, there may be diarrheal phenomena, then a cerucal is prescribed. Operated patients are advised to take a split meal in the future, up to five to six times a day, in more detail in the publication of a diet after laparoscopy of the gallbladder . Two or three days after the operation, if there were no complications, they are discharged from the hospital. In a week the patient should remove the stitches.
