This video demonstrates a combined laparoscopic cholecystectomy and appendectomy performed in a patient who underwent placement of 13 percutaneous drains for evacuation of multiple intra-hepatic abscesses. The video shows that the procedure, while technically challenging, is feasible with meticulous dissection and can provide the patient with a successful outcome. Treatment of complex hepatobiliary diseases such as the one demonstrated here also requires a multi-disciplinary collaborative team effort.
