Blunt trauma abdomen with biliary peritonitis or leading to perforation was found in 6 patients.
(7) Type I is an acute perforation with generalized biliary peritonitis, Type II is subacute perforation with localized peritonitis and pericholecystic abscess or walled-off fluid collection and Type III is a chronic process with cholecystoenteric fistula formation.
Peroperative degree of difficulty was evaluated depending on objective variables which included the presence of adhesions at Calot's triangle and between omentum and GB, obvious injury to GB, biliary ducts, bowel, diaphragm or other abdominal viscera, stone/biliary spillage, injury to vessels, need of conversion to open procedure (OP), and post-operative complications in the early post-operative period arising as a result of intraoperative difficulty, for example, biliary fistula, biloma, biliary peritonitis, and bowel injury unmasking after surgery.
However, the incidence of complications across the 10 studies (including pneumoperitoneum, stent migration, and bile leakage with no cases of biliary peritonitis) was approximately 10%.
One (4.34%) patient was operated in emergency department with biliary peritonitis due to suspected traumatic rupture of the GB.
Reoperation was considered only in patients with biliary peritonitis or sepsis and failure of percutaneous intervention.
