Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy versus other techniques of surgery for gallbladder removal
Objective and purpose –
This article aims at describing and comparing various surgical interventions and complications associated with laparoscopic cholescytectomy as performed by a single surgeon and as performed by a team of surgeons. This article also aims at comparing the newer techniques and various other methods of surgery for removal of gall bladder versus the single incision technique.
Methods and preparations –
There were several patients who underwent both the types of surgeries. There were a group of patients who appeared for the newer technique that is the single incision technique or the laparoscopic cholescytectomy and there was another batch of patients who were a bit apprehensive about this new technique hence opted out for the older one which includes the open surgery. This cholescytectomy were reviewed to gather information of the patients like abdominal findings, operative findings (single incision vs the open surgery), pre operative findings and post operative findings and other complications if any after each surgery. The patients were reviewed on the above mentioned findings and a detailed report was prepared. This report was later on sent to one of the sought after hospitals which is Bhopal Memorial Hospital, for senior doctor’s review and feedback.
The result was obvious. The newer technique that is the single incision technique had the maximum number of advantage in the entire manner as compared to the open surgery for removal of gall bladder. According to the report, approximately 97% of patients preferred single incision technique for the removal of the gallstones or even the gall bladder as well. It was said that the laparoscopic techniques was 94% successful as compared to the open surgery. The pre and post surgery complications in the laparoscopic technique to be less as compared to the other one. Almost 95% of the patients recovered in no time in the (hardly 5 to 6 weeks in all) where as in the open surgery, the patients took almost 2 to 3 months to recover from the stitches. Other post complications in the open surgery were different. One of the patients also suffered from bile duct injury while he was operated for open surgery. However, the results varied from patient to patient.
Keeping in to consideration, the pschycologically as well as etiologically and taking into consideration all the aspects of life as well as the present generation who is growing according to the technology, laparoscopy is in these days considered to be very valuable in as much as the laparoscopy targets the main aspect of organ where it has to work without any undue influence of the other parts of the organ.
