ISOLATED TRAUMATIC INJURIES OF THE GALLBLADDER – TWO CASE REPORTS
Ljiljana Pavošević, Luka Đudarić, Nikola Kopričanec
Isolated traumatic injuries of the gallbladder are rare but, if inadequately recognized, potentially life-threatening conditions. In this paper we present two cases of treatment of isolated injuries with a special accent on the great contribution of the imaging diagnostic methods in both diagnosis and choosing the therapeutic approach of these conditions. Radiology imaging methods – ultrasound and computed tomography – have a significant role in all stages of the hospital treatment of patients with traumatic gallbladder injury, as well as in confirming the uneventful recovery of these patients.
