Presentation Of Post Cholecystectomy Bile Duct Injuries In A Tertiary Care Hospital
Keywords:Presentation, post cholecystectomy, tertiary care hospital, bile duct injuries
Introduction:The occurrence of iatrogenic bile duct injuries is few, however potentially linked to life-threatening complications, particularly following the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Aims &Objectives: To evaluate the presentation of post-cholecystectomy bile duct injuries in a tertiary care hospital.
Place and Duration of Study: This study was done in the Department of General Surgery at Combined Military Hospital Rawalpindi from Nov 2020 to Dec 2021.
Material &Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 15 subjects with post-cholecystectomy bile duct injuries.All the patients who presented to the emergency department and outdoor were included in the study and had post-cholecystectomy CBD injuries. Laparoscopic and open BDI were classified according to Strasberg classification. In descriptive statistics, mean, and standard deviation was used, and in qualitative analysis, frequency and percentages were calculated with the help of the SPSS 23 version, a p-value of? 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: In our study, 5 (33.3 %) males and 10 (66.7 %) were females, with a mean age of 47.27 ± 4.79. The presentation on the admission of patients was as follows, 3 (20.0 %) patients had biloma, 4 (26.7 %) had jaundice, 2 (13.3 %) had abdominal pain, 1 (6.7 %) had external biliary fistula, 3 (20.0 %) had Biliary peritonitis and 2 (13.3 %) had a fever.
Conclusion: The most common consequence of cholecystectomy was complete resolution, but bile leak and major duct damage cause considerable morbidity, death, and healthcare expenditures. Better outcome was achieved when a nonprimary and skilled hepatobiliary surgeon repaired severe bile duct damage.
