Retrograde (fundus first) Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy in Situs Inversus Totalis

Turky Maeed Elbeshry, Wagih Mommtaz Ghnnam


Situs i nversus totalis (SIT) is an uncommon anomaly characterised by transposition of organs to the opposite side of the body in a mirror image of normal. It may cause difficulties in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of abdominal pathology due to the mirror-image anatomy. We report the management of a case of symptomatic cholilithiasis with emphasis on its surgical technique.
