Avoiding bile duct injury in cholecystectomy through anatomical appreciation

Mark E. Brooke-Smith

    Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


    Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a common operation performed on thousands of patients across Australia, New Zealand and the world every year. In the literature, great focus is placed on new and improving techniques in relatively uncommon complex procedures. However, it is in common procedures for common conditions where small improvements have the greatest potential benefits to the health of our community. It is reassuring to find groups such as Rajkomar et al . continuing to examine how improvement can be made with existing techniques in a common procedure like cholecystectomy and keep it in the forefront of our minds.1
