Laparoscopic retrograde cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic retrograde cholecystectomy: Laparoscopic retrograde cholecystectomy is a minimally invasive operation to remove the gallbladder from the bottom tip (fundus) downward instead of from the cystic duct; small "keyhole" incisions are made, through which a tiny video camera (laparoscope) and other instruments are inserted so the surgeon can see inside and remove the gallbladder without making a larger incision. This surgery may be facilitated by lifting the liver up and off the inflamed gallbladder by suturing it to the diaphragm.
