Gallbladder Volvulus: A Video Case Report

Summary:

We present a case report from September 2009 at our Laparoscopic Institution. The case attended as an emergency in an 84 year old female. Initially treated under medical care with generalised abdominal pain, an abdominal ultrasound scan demonstrated an inflamed, thick-walled gallbladder and a diagnosis of cholecystitis was made. At laparoscopy, the gallbladder was clearly necrosed and seemingly torted. We proceeded to laparoscopic cholecystectomy and following literature review, felt that this would represent an interesting video case report.
