Gallbladder Surgery Complications: Are They Serious

Most common abdominal surgery is Gallbladder Surgery. Mostly it is done laparoscopically called as laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Most common indications is symptomatic gallbladder stone disease. The incidence of complications of laparoscopic cholecystectomy has decreased. Following are the complications of gallbladder surgery


It occur due to injury to blood vessels during gallbladder surgery. Whenever there is bleeding intra-operatively dont be panic.First step should be applying pressure at the bleeding site. Small venous injury stops after packing only. Field should be cleared and after proper visualization bleeding point should be identified and either cauterized or clipped should be applied. Do not hesitate to convert to open surgery if bleeding is not controlled laparoscopically

Bile duct Injury

The incidence of bile duct injury in gallbladder surgery has been decreased after the learning curve of laparoscopic surgery. It occur in difficult cases with dense adhesions at gallbladder fossa.In such cases it should be converted to open surgery. Dissection should be done close to the gallbladder.Intra-operatively whenever there is doubt of bile duct injury convert to open. If injury cannot be managed then put a drain and refer the patient to higher centre

Injury to Bowel, Rare Gallbladder Surgery Complication

Bowel gets adhered to gallbladder fossa due to recurrent inflammation. Pylorus and duodenum are most commonly injured organs. Hepatic flexure is another common site of injury. In post-op period if recovery is not smooth and Common Bile duct is normal a high suspicious of bowel injury should be suspected and CECT abdomen should be done

Treatment of Stomach Cancer: Know by Specialist

The treatment of stomach cancer is successfull if diagnosed and treated at early stage. However more than 50% of stomach cancer when proceed for surgery are found to be metastatic. Most of the early stomach cancer symptoms or gastric cancer are non-specific and are overlooked. Chemotherapy is given by medical oncologist in advance cancer

Curative Surgical Treatment of Stomach Cancer

The standard curative treatment of stomach cancer is surgery if patient if fit for surgery and cancer is resectable. Patients factors which are responsible for good recovery in the post-op period include nutrition and ambulatory level. Patient nutrition and chest functions are good recovery is easy.
Staging laparoscopy is the first step in the surgery before definitive curative surgery is planned in case of open surgery. Staging laparoscopy helps in identification of metastases which are missed on CT Scan and PET Scan. No resection is done in case of metastatic disease unless tumor is bleeding. Radical gastrectomy is done. Depending on the location of tumor radical distal gastrectomy or radical sub-total gastrectomy or radical total gastrectomy is done. At least 12 lymph nodes should be dissected in the resected specimen for completeness of lymphadenectomy

Laproscopic Radical Gastrectomy

Radical gastrectomy can be done laparoscopically. Today we have enough evidence in the literature which support laparoscopic surgery in the abdominal malignancy. Laparoscopy surgery has the advantage of less pain and early recovery

Treatment of Stomach CancerPalliative Surgical Treatment of Stomach Cancer

If the stomach cancer is unresectable because either it is locally advance involving major blood vessels or it is metastatic then patient require some definitive therapy for palliation of there symptoms. If the tumor is bleeding and not controlled endoscopically or radiologically then palliative resection is done

Palliative Endoscopic Treatment of Stomach Cancer

If the stomach cancer is metastatic best method for palliation of symptoms is by means of endoscopy. The most common symptom that require palliation is vomitting, Endoscopically metallic stent is placed across the site of obstruction by Gastroenterologist

Colon Cancer Treatment: Whats New

The recommended colon cancer treatment or intestinal cancer is surgery. Colon cancer is one of the gastrointestinal cancer in which surgery carries a very good prognosis. Patient should be fit for surgery and cancer should be resectable. Recent studies suggest that no bowel preparation is required before surgery.Patient should be on clear liquid diet one day prior to surgery

  • Colon Cancer Treatment: Curative

The standard surgical treatment of colon cancer is radical colectomy. Colon is divided into four parts, ascending or right colon, transverse colon, descending or left colon and sigmoid colon. Depending on location of cancer respective colectomy is done. After colonic resection depending on patient nutrition status and tumor burden either anastomosis is done or stoma is created. Minimal 12 lymph nodes is the criteria for adequate lymadenectomy for colon cancer has been recommended. If the number of lymph nodes resected is less than 12 then the patient need adjuvant chemotherapy irrespective of staging on histopathology report

  • Laparoscopic Colon Cancer Surgery

Colon cancers are being operated more frequently laparoscopically by Laparoscopic colo-rectal surgeon. The length of incision in laparoscopic surgery is very minimum as compared to open surgery. Minimal incision cause less pain in the post-op period, allow early mobilization of patient and early recovery

  • Colon Cancer Treatment: Palliative

Palliative surgery is done for multiple site metastatic disease.The two most common symptoms for which palliation is required is large bowel obstruction and bleeding. Right or ascending colon have a tendency to bleed. Left or descending colon because diameter is less compared to right colon causes obstruction. For patients who present with large bowel obstruction depending on tumor burden and patient nutrition status either bypass is done or stoma is created. For bleeding tumors resection is done and attendants are counselled for high risk surgery

  •  Colon Cancer Treatment: Role of Chemo-Radiotherapy

Colon cancer are less sensitive to chemo-radiotherapy thats why its role is minimal in the management of colon cancer

  • Stomach Cancer Diagnosis

When patient present with non-specific upper GI symptoms at old age associated with anorexia and weight loss first investigation to be done is upper GI endoscopy. It will detect any mass lesion or ulcer in the stomach. Biopsy should be taken from any suspicious lesion. Biopsy confirms the diagnosis. Most common stomach cancer is adenocarcinoma

  • Investigations 

Once diagnosis is confirmed and patient is fit for surgery further investigations should be done for resectability of cancer, CECT abdomen is the ideal for staging the disease. It will detect distant metastases and relation of cancer to surrounding structures. PET scan should be done in patients who are high risk for surgery as it detect some occult metastases which are missed on CT Scan

Treatment of Gallbladder Cancer (Curative or Palliative)

The main stay of treatment of gallbladder cancer is surgery. In Northern part of India the incidence of gallbladder cancer is more as compared to southern part. Because of non-specific symptoms and signs of gallbladder cancer it is diagnosed at very late stage. Because of such high incidence of late diagnosis it carries a very bad prognosis

  • Curative Surgical Treatment of GallBladder Cancer

On Investigations when gallbladder cancer is found to be resectable and patient being fit for surgery, standard gallbladder cancer surgery is planned. Surgery for gallbladder cancer is radical cholecystectomy. In radical cholecystectomy gallbladder is removed along with the gallbladder liver wedge along with lymph nodes.
Staging laparoscopy is the first step before opening the abdomen. The chances to identify metastases which are missed on CECT abdomen or PET scan is high in case of gallbladder cancer. If any suspicious lesion is identified on staging laparoscopy it is sent for frozen biopsy and if found to be mets then there is no need to proceed for defintive surgery and morbidity of long length incision is avoided

  • Palliative Surgical Treatment of Gallbladder Cancer

Gallbladder cancer can involve gastric antrum or duodenum and cause vomitting. In such cases palliative gastro-jejunostomy is done. It can also involve hepatic flexure of colon and cause large bowel obstruction. Some patient present in emergency with features of large bowel obstruction. In such cases either ileo-colic bypass is done or stoma is created depending on patient nutrition status.

  • Palliative Endoscopic Treatment of Gallbladder Cancer

The gallbladder cancer patients which are found to be metastatic before surgery and are locally advanced in which resection is not possible are candidates for endoscopic palliation of there symptoms. Most commonly these symptoms include jaundice and vomitting. Jaundice can be relieved by endoscopic biliary stent placement. If there is complete biliary obstruction then percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage is done

This obstruction when leads to infection patient will have fever and it is called as cholangitis. Cholangitis is a serious condition and patient may develop septic shock and require urgent biliary drainage.

  • Biliary pancreatitis

It is another life threatening complication. Passage of stone lower down causes temporary blockage of pancreatic secretions and can cause. biliary pancreatitis.
