The aim of this work is to evaluate which of the two types of operation (traditional/open and laparoscopic) has more impact on patients who were operated electively due to their chronic calculous cholecystitis.
The prospective, single center, randomized study includes 120 patients who are operated electively - 60 patients operated laparoscopically and 60 patients operated traditionally. Biohumoral and endocrine parameters of response to trauma are determined from 24 hour urine and blood: adrenalin, noradrenalin, metabolites of corticosteroid hormone - 17- hydroxyl and 17- keto steroid (HPLC method), C reactive protein and albumin, glycemia, creatine phosphokinase, lactate dehydrogenase, sedimentation of erythrocytes and serum concentration of potassium.

Acute cholecystitis (AC) is a very common complication of cholelithiasis, encountered in 20% of symptomatic patients. Nowadays laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the standard treatment ...
The role of percutaneous cholecystostomy (PC) is undefined in patients with multiple comorbidities presenting with emergent calculous cholecystitis (CC). This study compared outcomes between PC, lapar...
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is considered the gold standard for the management of acute cholecystitis but controversy surrounds the timings of the surgery. Studies are available favouring both early ...
Recent studies have suggested higher complication and conversion to open rates for nighttime laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and recommend against the practice. We hypothesize that patients undergoi...
Debate continues regarding the clinical outcomes of early laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ELC) versus delayed laparoscopic cholecystectomy (DLC) for acute cholecystitis (AC). The aim of this retrospecti...
The laparoscopic approach to cholecystectomy has overtaken open procedures in terms of frequency, despite open procedures playing an important role in certain clinical situations. This study explored ...
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
