Abstract

A 30 year old woman who was 8 weeks postpartum with a history of cholelithiasis and gallstone pancreatitis, and who was status-post endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with sphincterotomy, was treated with a single-incision laparoscopic (SIL) cholecystectomy. A transversus abdominis plane block (TAP) was performed after induction of anesthesia. The patient required no intraoperative or postoperative opioids.
