Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy is one of the common surgical procedures performed. But complicated gall bladder pathologies like chronically inflamed GB, Gangrenous GB, Empyema GB can make dissection around the Calot’s triangle difficult with high risk of injury to CBD and hepatic artery or its branches. Thus, subtotal cholecystectomy can be considered as a safe alternative in the management of patients with complicated GB where the degree of inflammation precludes safe visualization of the biliary structures.
