Útdráttur

Perforation of the gallbladder with spillage of stones into the abdominal cavity is relatively common during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We report a patient presenting with a symptomatic groin hernia 10 days after laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis. The hernia sac was found to contain a gallstone. The patient underwent an uneventful hernia repair. Various complications due to retained gallstones have been described as case reports emphasizing how important it is to prevent perforation of the gallbladder or else make an effort to retrieve spilled stones from the abdomen.
