Reappearing Gallbladder

ezgif.com-add-text(1)

Unfortunately, this is an all too common complication of cholecystectomy. This case is unusually unfortunate because the abscess tracks all the way through the porta hepatis and appears to tunnel through the wall of the adjacent 2nd part of the duodenum. Not wanting to feel left out, the laparoscopic port sites in the anterior abdominal wall also developed abscesses (right upper quadrant and periumbilical). Incidental calcified aneurysm of one of the small mesenteric vessels can be seen anterior to the aorta.

This just goes to prove that a minor procedure is when it happens to someone else.
