Dr Yuen and Prof Lam published innovative research in the latest issue of International Journal of Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Diseases. In the cases of difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy (e.g. patients with severe acute cholecystitis), laparoscopic partial cholecystectomy could be performed in experienced hand with no bile duct injury or perioperative mortality. This adds further evidence to suggest laparoscopic partial cholecystectomy as a viable alternative to open conversion in cases of difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
