One of the most frequent and dangerous complications of cholelithiasis is acute cholecystitis, which occurs in 10-15% of patients with GI [1-3]. It is with this complication that a significant number of tactical errors occur, which can lead to adverse consequences [1,4,5]. One of the important messages is to determine the indications for surgery and the timing of surgery. Despite a significant number of works devoted to this pathology, there is no single point of view on this range of problems. Special difficulties arise in the treatment of the elderly contingent, as well as in severe concomitant pathology.

According to the report of the Chief Surgeon of the Russian Ministry of Health, the number of confirmed cases of patients with acute cholecystitis in Russia has been steadily increasing over the past 17 years. So, in 2004, 114,400 cases were detected, and in 2019, 160,634 or almost 1.5 times more [6].

At the same time, one of the main problems determining the outcomes of the disease is the course of acute cholecystitis in elderly patients and in patients with severe concomitant pathology [7-9]. It should be noted that according to E. Galperin, one in four patients of the older age group (60-70 years old) is diagnosed with gallstone disease [10]. At the same time, about 60% of patients admitted to the hospital with acute calculous cholecystitis are elderly and senile. Considering the fact that in this age group the degree of anesthetic risk is IV (high: 5-6.5 points) or V (extremely high: 7-9.5 points), which is associated with severe concomitant pathology of vital organs and systems, therapeutic tactics continues to be the subject of discussion [11].
