  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Recently, the repairing of common bile duct in laparoscopic surgery in patients with common bile duct stones is performed regularly. However, the problem with laparoscopic suturing of bile duct is that it is difficult and prolongs operation time. We performed common bile duct repair by using non perforating Vascular Closure Staple (VCS) clips made of titanium which were initially developed for vascular anastomoses, and the effective-ness of VCS was evaluated in this study. We believe that VCS clip is easy and useful for laparoscopic closure of common bile duct.
