What are the risks from Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy?
Most people may a straightforward recovery and serious complications are rare. But, all keyhole (laparoscopy) operations on your abdomen (tummy) carry some risks. There is some risk of excessive bleeding whilst separating (dissecting) the gallbladder from the liver. A rare but very serious risk is injury to the bile duct. This is the tube that carries bile from the liver to the bowel. Bile can leak out in to the tummy from the bile duct and cause serious infection. The treatment of bile duct injury can require endoscopy (called ERCP) and major corrective surgery. If the gallbladder is very stuck to the bile duct, then a sub-total cholecystectomy is done. Here, a small part of the wall of the gallbladder is left on the bile duct in order to protect the duct.
