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.


Excluding the gall stone, gallbladder polyp is a protruding wen on the wall of the inner side of the gall bladder. Simply, when there’s wen inside the gall bladder, it can be diagnosed as Gallbladder polyp. 3~7% of adults have gallbladder polyp and thanks to advancing ultrasonography, gradually more patients are being discovered to have gallbladder polyps. It is reported that women are more often diagnosed with gallbladder polyp than men.


담낭용종의 종류

Adenoma is originated from epithelial cell and hemangioma, lipoma, myoma outbreak from other tissue cells.
Types of pseudopolyp are cholesterol polyp, inflammatory polyp, proliferative polyp.

담낭용종의 원인

The cause of cholesterol polyp has to do with eating habits. However, for other types of polyp, the cause hasn’t yet been found.

담낭용종의 증상

Gallbladder polyp is often found while having medical checkup since there are no apparent symptoms.
However, if accompanied with cholelithiasis, symptoms similar to cholelithiasis, like upper stomach pain or dyspepsia may occur. Along with these symptoms, if weight loss is accompanied, then there is a possibility that it could be malignant polyp.

담석증의 치료?

Cholecystectomy is performed to remove the gallstones

담석증은 언제 수술을 해야하는가


Removal of the gallbladder through multiple small incisions. Small incision is made either under the right rib cage or in the middle of the upper part of abdomen, and gallbladder is removed. Cholelithiasis cannot be cured by removing the gallbladder stone solely since recurrence is unavoidable without removing the gallbladder.

담낭절제술 후 신체의 변화

Many patients believe that they would feel the differences in the absence of gallbladder. One of the common misconceptions is that they cannot digest properly without gallbladder. Gallbladder is not an organ to produce bile rather an organ to store and release it. Since bile is made in the liver, digestion should not be affected by the surgery.

Another misconception is that you need to take the medicine for a long period. The medication that you take after the operation is to protect liver and dilute the bile, and you need to take them for a short period.

A normal change that you can experience is dyspepsia, and less solid stool which is due to leakage of bile through biliary tract to the large intestine. These are all temporary and will come back to normal status. Overall, there isn’t much physical change that patients experience after cholecystectomy.

담낭절제술의 방법

Before 1990s, laparoscopic surgeries were not introduced so open surgery was commonly performed. However, after this, laparoscopic surgeries were introduced and became the standard procedure for cholelithiasis. After 2000, more advanced, single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy is performed through umbilicus. This can speed up the recovery of the patients, and provide aesthetically satisfying results.

담낭용종의 진단

It is very easy to find and diagnose Gallbladder polyp with abdominal ultrasonography.
However, it is crucial to determine whether the polyp is malignant or benign. Polyps that develop in the stomach or large intestine can be easily examined with an endoscope and are easy to differentiate. Before the operation, a biopsy cannot be done so the only way to find out if the polyp is malignant is with medical imaging. It is difficult to examine the detailed structure of poly, appearance, and the layer structure of gallbladder wall with abdominal ultrasonography. If concluded that further examination is necessary, endoscope ultrasonography can be done. Also, if there is a high chance of the polyp being malignant, abdominal CT or MIR can be helpful.

For abdominal diagnostic sonography, fasting is mandatory. When we ingest food, stored bile is excreted through the biliary tract causing it to shrink. To have a closer look at the Gallbladder polyp, it needs to be in the state of being inflated. This is why you will fast and go through the examination.
