The first laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed by Muhe in 1985. Since then laparoscopic cholecystectomy skills have progressively improved, and it has become the gold standard treatment for gallstone disease. It is most common to perform on an inpatient basis in the surgical ward or in the short stay unit with overnight admission. In this study we report our LC experiences in respect of postoperative complications. Thirty-three patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy included this study. All procedures performed by the same surgical team. No statistical differences were observed in operative time between the patients and mean operative time. No statistical differences were observed in blood loss between patients. 1 patient converted to open due to extreme adhesions resulted by recurrent acute cholecystitis. No mortality or no reoperation occurred. 1 patient developed wound site infection which treated with non-specific antibiotherapy. No biliary injury or postoperative bleeding occurred and there was no need for secondary powder application. Our complication rate which reported here is parallel with literature. We believe that it is also very important to recognise and report the complications following laparoscopic cholecystectomy such as bile leak, bile duct injury, wound infection, hemorrhagia and conversion to open cholecystectomy.
