Abstract: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy currently stands as the gold standard in the treatment of symptomatic biliary lithiasis. Surgeons are now striving to be even less invasive by reducing the size of the ports or their number. The present comparative study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of reducing port number without compromising the safety in cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. All the results suggest that that the three port laparoscopic cholecystectomy technique can be safely performed by trained personnel.
