Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: Technical Considerations for Safe Occlusion of the Cystic Artery and Duct

Program Description*

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for removing a diseased gallbladder and is the most common laparoscopic operation worldwide with approximately 300K performed worldwide annually. Ligating with manual polymer clips has proven to be as effective as metal clips and could potentially save undue costs. It is important for the entire surgical team to be familiar with the most common ligation clips to ensure they are used appropriately and safely.

In this CE module, surgical expert William Hope, MD, reviews the gold standard treatment for symptomatic gallstones, complications of surgery, and safe and efficient strategies for cystic duct and artery closure. To illustrate best practices, Dr. Hope shares video clips of LC procedures he recently performed, with a focus on avoiding surgical complications and the optimal use of hemostatic surgical clips.
