Laparoscopic Liver Biopsy

Patient: 4 year old, male Shi Tzu
Annual Blood work showed elevated liver enzymes.
Consequently, biopsy of liver was necessary.
Rather than a surgical biopsy, the owner elected to do a minimally invasive laparoscopic biopsy.

This video shows 5mm of liver being taken.

The whiteish organ on the left is the gall bladder.

Results from biopsy: lymphoma

Patient was sent back to referring veterinarian for treatment.

The procedure with prep and recovery took less than 1 hour.
