Unexplained ascites following laparoscopic cholecystectomy: A surgeon 's nightmare – A case report and review of literature

We report a case of ascites development in a young female immediately after Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, for which a cause cannot be found. On review of medical literature, there are few similar case reports, based on them; it can be ascertained to acute allergic reaction to the material used during the procedure may be the CO2 or the electrocautery.

AbstractIntroductionWe hypothesized that practicing surgeons would successfully achieve a better and more frequent Critical View of Safety (CVS) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) after participation in a structured Safe CVS Curriculum.MethodsAll surgeons performing LC at a regional health system had four LC cases recorded: twice before and twice after a curriculum focused on the CVS, which was led by a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) Safe LC Task Force. Videos were then de-identified and randomly ordered for grading on a 6-point CVS assessment tool by two expert sur...

ConclusionsThe EURO-FIGS registry has confirmed a wide disparity in ICG dose and timing in NIRF-C. EURO-FIGS can represent a valuable tool to promote and monitor FIGS-related educational and consensus activities in Europe.
