Abstract

Introduction: The aim of the study was to retrospectively evaluate a group of 34 patients who underwent surgery due to incidental gallbladder carcinoma after laparoscopic cholecystectomy at the University Hospital Plzeň in 2005-2015.Cohort: 34 patients after laparoscopic cholecystectomy with an accidental finding of gallbladder carcinoma in the definitive histological examination were included, not only at our site, but also at other sites in the Czech Republic. Radical cholecystectomy was performed at our site.
Results: Postoperative mortality in the group was 0%, morbidity was 24%. The most frequent complications included collection in the post-resection bed and right-side fluidothorax. The 5 year survival rate was 68% on average, but depended on the tumour staging.Conclusion: Due to the early stages of incidental gallbladder cancer after LCHE, the patients have a very good prognosis in a specialized surgical centre after radical surgery.
