Risks and Complications
The same as any surgical procedure, complications could happen. A few potential complications of cholecystectomy can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Bile duct injure – the tube that transport bile from the gallbladder to the small intestine.
During the course of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, insertion of the instruments into the abdomen could cause an injury to the intestines or blood vessels.
