“WEEK 4: DIGESTIVE AND URINARY SYSTEM CASE STUDIES” 1. After reviewing the Operative Report, provide the following in your post. A. Please make a short summary of the above case. What procedure was intended? Why did it have to be converted? What were the abnormal findings? Be sure to explain any medical terms used in your response. a. On the operative report the intended procedure was to be a laparoscopic procedure and changed due to the fact of a gangrenous gall bladder in being so severely inflamed and had to be changed to a cholecystectomy. Not only was the gallbladder resected from this procedure, but a portion of the liver had to be removed to be examined as to make sure the liver was still able to be examined if there was any more hemorrhaging. B. Reviewing the operative report, identify some key diagnosis and organs investigated during the procedure. b. The abnormal findings were partially gangrenous and inflamed gallbladder, thickened gallbladder wall and multiple stones. Gangrenous changes of the gallbladder are the result of marked distention of the gallbladder causing increased tension in the gallbladder wall. Gallstones are hardened deposits of bile that form in your gallbladder. The diagnosis would be acute cholecystitis with a partially gangrenous gallbladder. Organs investigated during this procedure were the bowel, the gallbladder, and the liver. 2. Review the outpatient encounter for Bernard Collins, accomplish the following and report in your findings and comments in your post.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
