Annals of Surgery Journal Club #13: Early Cholecystectomy for Gallstone Pancreatitis

OVERVIEW

Join us for our 13th joint Journal Club with Annals of Surgery! We discuss how to get patients better, faster with a surgery-first approach to gallstone pancreatitis. This episode’s guest authors are Dr. Krislynn Mueck, a general surgery resident at the University of Texas Health Science Center, and Dr Lillian Kao, the Jack Mayfield, MD Chair in Surgery and Division Chief of Acute Care Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. We discuss their paper, “Gallstone Pancreatitis: Admission versus Normal Cholecystectomy – a Randomized Trial.” Access the paper free of charge here: https://journals.lww.com/annalsofsurgery/Abstract/2019/09000/Gallstone_Pancreatitis__Admission_Versus_Normal.14.aspx
