국내최초 단일통로복강경 담낭절제술 1,000례 돌파

단일통로 복강경 담낭절제술

The existing laparoscopic cholecystectomy required many openings to conduct the surgery.
However, single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy is done by installing a special single port through the navel which allows many instruments to enter the port. Since the surgery is carried out with single port, the difficulty level is a lot higher than the original laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and requires skills and experience to proceed.

We have two experienced anesthesiologists, with wide clinical experiences, taking charge of anesthesia. All three general anesthesia operating rooms are equipped with Dräger’s FABLUS PLUS. Some hospital put patients under sedation despite the fact that these hospitals are not equipped with or don’t possess general anesthesia equipment. Ideally, for safety reasons, hospitals need to be equipped with general anesthesia equipment even when putting patients under sedation. Our hospital has three aseptic operating rooms, equipped for general anesthesia.

Cholelithiasis is diagnosed with ultrasound imaging. After confirming the calculus in the gallbladder, the existence of inflammation is checked by examining the thickness of the gallbladder wall and the inflammation reaction on the surroundings.

Diagnostic sonography is the best examination to observe cholelithiasis, but if there is a chance of choledocholithiasis, or possibility of any other disease accompanied, CT or MRI scan procedures can be done.

When cholelithiasis is left untreated, the disease progresses and causes gallbladder inflammation.

  • Acute cholecystitis is in the case where sudden inflammation. If acute cholecystitis is left untreated, after 72 hours later, it progresses into empyema of the gallbladder (gall bladder turns into abscess).
  • On the other hand, the slow occurrence of inflammation is called chronic cholecystitis and if untreated for over 6 months, the wall of gallbladder thickens and loses its function.

Cholelithiasis is a common disease throughout the world, observed both in Eastern and Western countries. In Western countries, about 10~20% of the population suffer from cholelithiasis and in Korea, no statistical data have been made yet, but about 5~10% of the population suffer from cholelithiasis. As average life expectancy of humans extend, high-technologies like abdominal ultrasound imaging has bee developed, and the rate of medical checkup increased resulting more percentage of patients with cholelithiasis. It is known that most patients with cholelithiasis are asymptomatic. The gallbladder’s physiological features provide the right environment to form calculus because the gallbladder stores bile for a certain amount of time which can promote the growth of gallstone. The ample concentration of bile and mucus secretion creates an adequate condition to form gallstones.

Symptoms of cholelithiasis appear when cystic duct has been clogged with gallstones or irritation on the gallbladder wall caused by gallstone motivated inflammation. Pain occurred by blocked cystic duct is known as cholelithiasis. Acute cholecystitis is caused by infection. If cholelithiasis continuously affects cholecystopathy, chronic cholecystitis occurs and repeated attacks of acute cholecystitis can lead to chronic cholecystitis.

Depending on the element, cholelithiasis can be classified as cholesterol stone and pigment stone. The causes of these two stones differ.

The formation of cholelithiasis has multiple factors, including bile juice, cholesterol, and other elements.

Not all cholelithiasis patients have symptoms. Treatment of cholelithiasis is done when the patient shows signs of symptoms, if the size of calculus is too large or multiple. Commonly, treatment is conducted when a patient suffers from pain caused by cholecystitis, or when cholelithiasis occurs. Clinical signs can differ depending on severity. The most distinctive symptom is a sharp pain in the upper right abdominal, radiating to the right shoulder, and the back area. About 60~70% of patients experience biliary colic, meaning that the pain disappears after a while.
