Which Procedure Was Performed?

September 6, 2017



A body part removed from an 11-year-old Labrador retriever.


  1. What’s your diagnosis?
  2. So what procedure was performed?
  3. Name two potentially deadly patho-physiological consequences of this condition (hint: one is a certainty; the other one is a possibility).


  1. Ruptured gallbladder (the torn part is held closed by the two instruments)
  2. A cholecystectomy.
  3. Chemical peritonitis for sure, with possibly septic peritonitis.


How did you do? Let us know in the comments below.
