Jaundice Post Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

Issue: 
Pages: 
88–91

ABSTRACT

In just over 20 years, laparoscopic cholecystectomy has emerged as the standard therapy for cholelithiasis and is now being performed with increased safety. However, an uncommon complication of this technique has been jaundice even in patients without iatrogenic bile duct injury. We report on two cases where this complication occurred and review the literature on this topic.

Ultrasound Detected Asymptomatic Cholelithiasis: An Age-based Protocol for Management

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.130
Pages: 
903–6
Synopsis: 
Patients with cholelithiasis were reviewed with ultrasound for acute and chronic cholecystitis. Patients 60 years and younger were more likely to have cholecystitis than older patients.


ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was undertaken to examine the correlation between age and gender and the presence of ultrasound findings of acute or chronic cholecystitis in adult patients with cholelithiasis.

Method: The demographic data of all patients diagnosed with cholelithiasis and cholecystitis on ultrasound between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2006 were reviewed and statistically analysed.

Cholelithiasis on Imaging – An Analysis of Clinical Presentations by Age and Gender in a Jamaican Population

Issue: 
Pages: 
375–8
Synopsis: 
The clinical presentations which led to the diagnosis of cholelithiasis were different in males compared to females. Females were more likely to be diagnosed in the setting of an acute abdomen, while males presented with non-acute symptoms unrelated to the biliary tract.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study is a descriptive analysis of the clinical presentations in which cholelithiasis was diagnosed on imaging over a five-year period at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica and how the clinical presentation varied with age and gender.
