Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy - 10 years experience.

Dr Diganta Borgohain

Abstract :

 The first successful cholecystectomy was performed by Langenbuch in 1882, setting the path for therapeutic intervention in cholelithiasis. With the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the 1980s, the standard approach has changed such that cholecystectomy is now routinely performed laparoscopically. This study is an analysis of laparoscopic cholecystectomy by a single surgeon over a span of 10 years. The study includes 516 cases of elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy and an attempt has been made to compare the outcome of surgery with a few other similar studies. Female patients outnumbered male patients in this study, which is true for almost all other such studies around the globe. The conversion rate is 8.14% which is slightly in the higher side of the spectra of accepted limit. But other-hand, complication rates are found to be on the lower side of accepted limit with zero mortality.
