Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Fully Explained Skin-to-Skin Video with Near Infrared Cholangiography
This video demonstrates Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Fully Explained Skin-to-Skin Video with Near Infrared Cholangiography performed by Dr R K Mishra at World Laparoscopy Hospital. A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves removing the gallbladder. It is typically performed using small incisions in the abdomen, through which a laparoscope (a thin tube with a camera and light) and surgical instruments are inserted. The surgeon uses the laparoscope to visualize the inside of the abdomen and to guide the instruments in removing the gallbladder.
Near-infrared cholangiography is a technique that uses a special camera and fluorescent dye to visualize the bile ducts during surgery. The dye is injected into the cystic duct (the tube that connects the gallbladder to the bile ducts) and the camera detects the fluorescence emitted by the dye, allowing the surgeon to see the bile ducts more clearly.
The combination of laparoscopic cholecystectomy and near-infrared cholangiography has become a standard of care in many hospitals and surgical centers. It allows for a more precise and efficient surgery, reducing the risk of complications such as bile duct injury.
The use of indocyanine green (ICG) with near-infrared imaging during laparoscopic cholecystectomy has several advantages. Here are some of them:
Better visualization of the biliary anatomy: ICG with near-infrared imaging allows for better visualization of the biliary anatomy during surgery. This helps the surgeon identify important structures, such as the cystic duct and the common bile duct, and avoid injuring them.
Reduced risk of bile duct injury: With better visualization of the biliary anatomy, the risk of bile duct injury during surgery is reduced. Bile duct injury is a serious complication that can occur during laparoscopic cholecystectomy and can lead to long-term health problems.
Improved surgical precision: ICG with near-infrared imaging also improves surgical precision. The surgeon can better see the tissues and structures being operated on, which can help reduce the risk of bleeding and other complications.
Shorter operating time: The use of ICG with near-infrared imaging can shorten the operating time for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This is because the surgeon can more quickly and accurately identify the biliary anatomy, which can help streamline the surgery.
Overall, the use of ICG with near-infrared imaging is a valuable tool in laparoscopic cholecystectomy that can improve surgical outcomes and reduce the risk of complications.
Like any surgical procedure, laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) has potential complications. Here are some of the most common ones:
Bleeding: Bleeding during or after the surgery is a possible complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Most cases are minor and can be easily controlled, but in rare cases, significant bleeding may require a blood transfusion or even additional surgery.
Infection: Any surgical procedure carries a risk of infection. After laparoscopic cholecystectomy, there is a risk of infection at the site of the incisions or within the abdomen. Symptoms may include fever, pain, redness, or drainage from the incision sites.
Bile leakage: In some cases, a small amount of bile may leak from the bile ducts into the abdominal cavity after gallbladder removal. This can cause abdominal pain, fever, and sometimes requires further surgery or treatment.
Injury to nearby organs: During the surgery, there is a small risk of unintentional injury to nearby organs such as the liver, intestines, or bile ducts. This can cause additional complications and may require further treatment.
Adverse reactions to anesthesia: As with any surgery requiring general anesthesia, there is a small risk of adverse reactions to the anesthesia, such as an allergic reaction, respiratory problems, or heart complications.
Most patients recover without complications following a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, but it is important to discuss any concerns or questions with your surgeon beforehand.
