Single-Fulcrum Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Variant Single-Incision and Multiport Technique

Sung Hoon Choi, Chang Moo Kang, Ho Kyoung Hwang, and Woo Jung Lee

Abstract

Background: Single-port laparoscopic surgery using a natural wound, the umbilicus, has been developed based on accumulated laparoscopic experiences and technique. Because working instruments need different fulcrum points in a narrow incision (umblicus), various types of specialized instruments are generally necessary for performing single-port surgery.1?8

Methods: This technique is a kind of single-incision and multiport technique. However, by using two main working instruments in a single fulcrum point, we can perform single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy more effectively without expensive and specialized equipments. After making an incision on the umbilicus, a 10-mm port for the laparoscope was introduced through the upper portion of the wound. A commercialized miniature 5-mm port was inserted through the lower part of incision, and the usual 2-mm port was inserted just below the 5-mm trocar insertion site (these two working ports use the same fulcrum point). Upward and lateral traction of gallbladder was done by applying 2-0 monofilament suture to the fundus percutaneously. With right lateral traction of the gallbladder by a 2-mm grasper, the anterior aspect of Calot's triangle was dissected. After changing the vector of the working port at the single fulcrum, gallbladder was retracted to the left lateral portion to expose the posterior part of Calot's triangle. After isolating and dividing both cystic artery and cystic duct, cholecystectomy was done.

Results: From March 2009 to May 2010, seventy patients underwent this single-fulcrum laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The general characteristics and perioperative outcomes of the patients were summarized. There was no conversion case to conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy or open surgery. There was no case of drain insertion, complication, or death, even though about 16% of bile spillage was occurred. Cosmetic effect of this single-fulcrum laparoscopic cholecystectomy was similar to the usual one-port technique.

Conclusion: This single-fulcrum laparoscopic cholecystectomy is regarded feasible, safe, and cost effective. Further comparative study between current single-fulcrum laparoscopic cholecystectomy and conventional technique will address the potential benefits of this technique.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely

    of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content
    from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives
    for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me
    in the direction of a good platform.
