Laparoscopic management of a type III Mirizzi syndrome: cholecystectomy with flag technique and ideal suture of a cholecystobiliary fistula

Epublication WebSurg.com, Oct 2014;14(10). URL:
In this video, authors demonstrate the laparoscopic management of a Mirizzi syndrome. Due to a cholecystocholedochal fistula and to a difficult dissection of Calot’s triangle, authors decided to modify the dissection technique by performing a primary freeing of the gallblader as described by Jean Mouiel. In order to prevent any further biliary damage, a subtotal cholecystectomy is also achieved by means of an EndoGia™ linear stapler. Cholecystobiliary fistula is repaired using an absorbable running suture protected by an internal choledochal drain placed thanks to preoperative endoscopic catheterization.
