Minimising the hidden dangers of cholecystectomy in vascular Ehlers
Danlos syndrome through a multidisciplinary approach
We present a 47-year-old with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) type IV
(vascular subtype) referred with recurrent episodes of severe biliary
colic requiring elective cholecystectomy. Successful surgical management
required extensive planning and multidisciplinary teamwork. This report
is intended as a guide for clinicians in the perioperative planning of
elective EDS typeIV patients.
