HERRERA-CABRAL, Héctor Rolando; JARA, Angel Julián Acevedo; ORTELLADO-NARVAEZ, Nelson Inocencio  y  PEDROZO-AMARILLA, Luz Analía. Triple umbilical incision for videlaparoscopic cholecystectomy. Cir. parag. [online]. 2020, vol.44, n.1, pp.22-25. ISSN 2307-0420.


The laparoscopic surgery is done by using a single port. You place a device through a single incision between 18mm to 50mm and 3-4 trocars can be used. Our work consists of making 3 little incisions to put the three trocars which measure 5 mm and use conventional instruments that measure 36 cm of length of laparoscopic surgery within the internal limits of the umbilicus


Describe the surgery technique and evaluate the initial results of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy option through three intraumbilical incisions.


It is a retrospective, descriptive, multicentre and observational study. Since June 2014 to August 2019, 20 patients, 17 female and 3 male, were operated using this method from the age ranges of 16 to 65 years old. The average surgical time was 65 minutes.


In all cases the procedures were concluded by the intraumbilical approach. One of the cases had to be re-operated due to intraabdominal bleeding from the posterior branch of the cystic artery.


the technique is reproducible; the usual triangulation of the ports is not available. Therefore fort this technique the surgeon needs to have experience and have had advanced training in laparoscopic surgery. The cases must be selective.

Palabras clave : triple incision; umbilicus and cholecystectomy.
