Cholecystectomy is the commonest elective general surgical operation performed in the UK. The incidence of gallstones is increasing and the waiting time for cholecystectomy in the UK is also rising . As a consequence of this and the changing demography of the patients the operation is becoming more challenging. The incidence of complications following laparoscopic cholecystectomy is higher in those with a high BMI, male sex, and those with a thick walled gallbladder such as associated with an empyema .
The majority of cholecystectomies are carried out laparoscopically and this allows the patients to recover more quickly and remain in hospital usually for less than 24 hours. The advantages to the patient, the hospital and the wider health economy are therefore obvious but there is a need to minimise complications as any complication will impact on the advantages that are accrued by successful laparoscopic surgery.
