Comparison of gall bladder retrieval through umbilical port and epigastric port: A randomized comparative study

Author(s): Dr. Gourav Chopra, Dr. Navdeep Singh Saini and Dr. Anil Luther
Abstract: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is one of the commonest surgeries done these days. It has become gold standard for the treatment of symptomatic cholelithiasis. Retrieval of gallbladder is an important terminal event in laparoscopic cholecystectomy and is reported as one of the factors that affects the outcome of surgery. This study aimed to compare the clinical outcome between patients who had gallbladder retrieved by epigastric port versus umbilical port following laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This was a randomized comparative study for a period of 18 months where multiple parameters were compared between umbilical port and epigastric port for retrieval of the gallbladder. Out of total of 100 patients, 74 were females and 26 were males. It was found that umbilical port is better than epigastric in view of less post-operative pain but with an increased risk of port site infection and hernia.
