The cholecystectomy by video-laparoscopy has made a revolution in biliary surgery. We present the first 100 cases operated with this technique in acute and chronic cholecystitis. Eighty five percent (85%) with admissions of less than 24 hours, a low morbidity and convalescence period of less than seven days. To perform this procedure is necessary basic training in surgery and endoscopy, the appropriate equipment and team of surgeons.
