Some people may experience pain, discomfort, and other symptoms. Gallstones may also indicate more serious health concerns, such as cholangitis, biliary pancreatitis, or gallbladder cancer.1 An intraoperative cholangiogram can identify stones at the time of a gallbladder removal, and common bile duct (CBD) exploration can be performed laparoscopically to remove stones stuck in the bile duct.
Cook Medical believes industry-surgeon collaboration is vital to providing better healthcare. We’re partnering with centers and surgeons to hold laparoscopic common bile duct training events. These product-focused trainings are designed to help enhance clinical competence and improve patient outcomes.
Using simulation trainers, surgeons and nurses get a hands-on feel for CBD exploration—performing cholangiography, stone removal, and biliary stenting. Complete the Vista® request form to learn more.
