 We report a case of cholecystolithiasis with a right-sided round ligament treated by single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A 71-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of discomfort in the upper abdomen. The patient had undergone percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder aspiration for acute cholecystitis 5 years before. Abdominal CT revealed gallbladder stones and a right-sided round ligament. We performed single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy successfully without conversion to conventional laparoscopy. The postoperative course was uneventful. We describe the case and discuss the key procedures for safe single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy for a patient with right-sided round ligament from our experience.
