Pain and Duration Scoring Between Open and Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Dr. Bommireddy V. Reddy | Dr. Abhijith Sudhakar Shetty
Abstract: Gastro-intestinal surgery has undergone a revolution in the recent years by the introduction of laparoscopic techniques. The concept of keyhole surgery created an immediate disparity between the potential of the new technique and training of surgeons to perform it. Now modern surgical methods are aimed at giving cure along with minimal invasive techniques with patient in mind, safety never being compromised. Cholelithiasis, which continues to be one of the most common digestive disorders encountered, was traditionally being dealt by conventional or open cholecystectomy. With the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the surgical community witnessed a revolution in basic ideology and the importance of minimal access surgery has suddenly impacted. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has become so safe and easy that it can be performed with much ease and safety because of better magnification. Although LC has shown clear benefits in terms of shortened hospital stay, less morbidity, mortality, a quicker return to work and with cosmetic advantage, many questions regarding this procedure remain unanswered, particularly relative to the gold standard procedure of open cholecystectomy.
