Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy in Patient with Previous CAPD Treatment: A Case Report
Keywords:laparoscopic cholecystectomy, CAPD treatment
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the gold standard treatment of gallstone disease. Patients with previous abdominal surgery are considered contraindicated to surgery due to post-operative adhesions. However, with the improvement of surgical techniques and advanced instruments developed, these criteria are no longer prohibited. Patients who had previous continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) treatment may comparable to those with previously operated abdomen but the severity of fibrous adhesions and extent of the lesion in the abdomen have never been demonstrated before. The author would like to present a successful case of LC in a patient who had previous CAPD treatment.
