Prospective randomized trial of single incision versus standard 4 port laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Hypothesis is that the operative time will be longer with single incision.
This will be a prospective, randomized clinical trial involving patients who present to the hospital with an indication for cholecystectomy. We will offer enrollment to several institutions provided they receive institutional approval.
This will be a definitive trial design. Based on our operative times with SILS compared with our recent experience in standard laparoscopy, a sample size of 60 patients will give us a power of 0.8 with an α of 0.05.
After the procedure, both groups will be managed in the same manner per routine care. They will be discharged when tolerating a regular diet and their pain is well-controlled on oral pain medication.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.
Excision, in part or whole, of an intervertebral disk. The most common indication is disk displacement or herniation. In addition to standard surgical removal, it can be performed by percutaneous diskectomy (DISKECTOMY, PERCUTANEOUS) or by laparoscopic diskectomy, the former being the more common.
