Cholecystectomy is sometimes the most difficult operation to perform. When the atrophic gallbladder with severe inflammation falls into the spongy soft liver, it is not easy to perform a standard cholecystectomy without causing bleeding and serious injury around the hilar structures. Some selected patients with chronic cholecystitis under some particular circumstances might be better suited to undergo a cholecystectomy combined resection with the gall-bladder bed rather than the ordinary standard cholecystectomy. Herein, we showed a partial hepatic resection of the gallbladder bed with the gallbladder using an intermittent hepatic inflow occlusion.
