When it was difficult to find a plane of dissection between the gallbladder and liver bed, excision of gallbladder was done by electrocoagulation using the hook dissector or scissors, at the level of gallbladder junction with the liver bed leaving behind the posterior wall of gallbladder attached to the liver bed with ablation of its mucosa by electrocautery probe. Gallbladder was extracted from the epigastric port using a sterile plastic bag.
The posterior wall of the gallbladder was left intact with the liver and the mucosal ablation was done by electrocautery probe. In one patient bleeding was present from venous collaterals, for which clip was applied for haemostasis.
