Abstract

The cholecystectomy by video laparoscopy has made a big revolution in biliary surgery during de last three or four years. We present the first 25 cases with acute cholecystitis operated on by this technique with very low morbidity a convalescence period and hospitalization time inferior to the one expected for open cholecystectomy and a conversion to open laparotomy in a relatively low percentage of the cases. In order to perform this procedures a basic training in surgery and laparoscopy is necessary groups of surgeons that work coordinated with adequate instrumentation as well as experience in laparoscopic cholecystectomy in non acute cases is always necessary.
