Unsuspected gallbladder carcinoma after laparoscopic cholecystectomy: development of a case

Guglielminetti D., Basilio Poddie D.


PDF  


Gallbladder carcinoma is rare and it represents 5% of all carcinomas. With the increase of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, some cases of metastases of unsuspected gallbladder carcinoma are related in trocar incisions. A case of unsuspected gallbladder carcinoma operated with laparoscopic technique, developing umbilical metastases one year after operation, is reported. Metastases could be the result of the spreading of tumor cells during gas insufflation, or the direct contact between laparoscopic instruments and tumor.
