Abstract

Ultrasonically guided percutaneous transhepatic gallbladder aspiration (UG-PTGA) was used in the treatment of hydrops caused by acute cholecystitis in 21 patients. The interventions had no complications. This kind of aspiration is believed to be suitable for the relief of gallbladder tension causing acute complaints and of subsequent pathological changes.
