Treatment of acute cholecystitis in a third-trimester pregnant women
This case report describes a 35-year-old female with acute cholecystitis 36 weeks into her pregnancy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy was assessed not to be possible. An ultrasonic guided percutaneous transhepatic gall bladder drainage was performed resulting in immediate pain relief. The patient was discharged two days later, and the drain sat in place until a caesarian section was per­­formed. A post-surgery cholangiography demonstrated stones in the gall bladder but no stones in the common bile duct. An un­eventful laparoscopic cholecystectomy was carried out three months after surgery. The case report demon­strates that percutaneous transhepatic gall bladder drain­age is a safe procedure to be considered in women with chole­cystitis in which cholecystectomy is not possible or assumed to be associated with an unacceptable high risk.
