Cholécystectomie et cure de hernie inguinale: interventions courantes par laparoscopie [Cholecystectomy and inguinal repair: frequent laparoscopic interventions]
Revue Médicale Suisse
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy reduces postoperative pain, hospital stay and recovery in comparison with the open procedure. This approach allows to treat most of vesicular pathologies, as acute cholecystitis and choledocal lithiasis, with excellent results. Biliary tract injuries represent however the most feared complication. Concerning groin hernia pathology, two different laparoscopic approaches are described, as the trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal approach (TAPP) and the total extra-peritoneal approach (TEP). The first technique is easier to perform, but associated with more frequent significant intraabdominal morbidity. Results are comparable to the classic open Lichtenstein technique in term of reccurence. Laparoscopic approach could be associated with a lower chronic pain rate, but further studies should confirm this statement.
