SILS Cholecystectomy: Cholangiography of the Biliary Tract

This study has been completed.

Last verified: July 2010
Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) can be performed for different standard operations such as appendectomy and cholecystectomy. During laparoscopic cholecystectomy sometimes a cholangiography (marking the biliary tract with contrast agent) is necessary to identify and preserve relevant structures. The investigators want to evaluate feasibility of performing cholangiography during SILS cholecystectomy.
