Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


80 patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy, of whom 64 were females and 16 males (age range 20-70 years) and 15 had undergone previous abdominal operations. 3 of the 80 operations were converted to open cholecystectomy. In 11, preoperative ERCP was performed, in 2 of whom common bile duct stones were detected. In 7 intraoperative cholangiography was performed. The average hospital stay was 2.2 days. Based on this and other studies, laparoscopic cholecystectomy seems to be the operation of choice for symptomatic cholelithiasis.
