Cholecystostomy Procedure in Houston, TX Area
Cholecystostomy is a minimally invasive procedure performed by Synergy Vascular and Interventional’s highly-trained and subspecialized interventional radiologists when the gallbladder is inflamed and surgery cannot be safely performed. A small catheter is inserted through the skin surface into the gallbladder under image guidance to allow infected bile to drain into an external collection bag. The catheter can be removed at a later date if the gallbladder does not remain blocked. Otherwise, the gallbladder can be surgically removed on an elective basis if needed.
