Closed Cholecystectomy

Closed Cholecystectomy

The essence of the process; is the complete removal of the gallbladder by separating from its connections in the abdomen (together with the stones and mud inside). First, a small tube is inserted through the navel and the abdominal cavity is inflated with approximately 4 liters of gas. Then, the view of the inside is projected onto the television screen with a rod-shaped camera sent through the tube in the core.Thus, vision and range of motion is provided for surgical instruments and procedures. Surgical instruments in the form of rods are inserted by placing three smaller tubes under the right rib arc. The surgeon performs surgery by monitoring the organs in the abdomen, the instruments they are using and the procedures they perform. The surgeon's vision is superior to open surgeries, as the camera can magnify the image and project it from the desired angle. If necessary, video recording can be made during surgery. Before surgery, the vein and duct of the gallbladder are found and closed with titanium staples, cut and separated. Then the gallbladder is stripped of its attachment to the liver and freed in the abdomen. The gallbladder is pulled out through one of the holes. At the end of the procedure, the gas inside is completely drained and the small incisions are closed with hidden stitches and the operation is completed. The operation time usually varies between 15-45 minutes. Surgery may take longer and requires more surgical experience in patients with severe (acute) inflammation or in patients with prolonged inflammation (multiple abdominal pain attacks). In addition, the general health condition of the patient and the structural positions of the gallbladder and adjacent organs also affect the course of the surgery. Operations performed for patients admitted in the early stages of the disease are short and comfortable, and the healing process is smooth and comfortable.
