Abstract

Management of acute cholecystitis during pregnancy may be problematic. Most investigators advocate medical management initially with surgery reserved for those patients who fail conservative measures. We present a case of acute calculous cholecystitis during pregnancy, which was successfully managed by percutaneous cholecystostomy, until after delivery when surgical cholecystectomy was performed. To our knowledge, this is the first report of use of a percutaneous cholecystostomy catheter to help manage acute cholecystitis in pregnancy.
