Laparoscopic cholecystectomy- Common difficulties and some tips & tricks!

16th February 2023, 19:00 to 20:00 GMT


Most people would face one or more difficulties during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) in morbidly obese patients and try their best to overcome them as and when they occur. We have picked up some ideas from bariatric surgery and developed a standardised approach for patients with high BMI coming for LC in this unit.

In the second talk we would address some technical aspects of subtotal cholecystectomy that trainees may find useful in emergency cholecystectomy. In the last talk we would cover completion cholecystectomy which is becoming more common after inadequate subtotal cholecystectomy.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar participants should have a more structured approach to laparoscopic cholecystectomy in morbidly obese patients and would be able to perform surgery without undue stress in more controlled manner.

They should also have better understanding of and more structured approach to, laparoscopic subtotal cholecystectomy that they may have to perform in emergency situations.
