A comparative study between laparoscopic and open cholecystectomy with early post-operative course and complication
Keywords:Cholelihiasis; laparoscopic cholecystectomy; open cholecystectomy;post operative pain.
Background and objectives: Although laparoscopic cholecystectomy has quickly gained popularity as a viable alternative to open cholecystectomy, it should have a safety profile that is comparable to or better than that of open surgery.The purpose of this study was to compare open cholecystectomy versus laparoscopic cholecystectomy in terms of surgical time, blood loss during surgery, early post-operative course and complication, antibiotic and analgesic requirements, and patient satisfaction after the procedure. Methods: A total of 40 consecutive individuals under the age of 70 who presented with calculous cholecystitis but no evidence of CBD stones were randomised to either open or laparoscopic treatment. Cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the gallbladder. The information was gathered and examined. Results: Statistically, the two groups were comparable in terms of demographic and clinical characteristics. Complications and blood loss were not significantly different across the groups. In the laparoscopic group, the median duration of pain was 2 days, with a visual analogue scale for pain of grade 2 in the laparoscopic group, but it was 5 days and grade 3 in the open group. The median length of hospitalisation was much lower in the laparoscopic group (median 4 days vs to 7 days in the open- chest group). Conclusion: Most important were the reduced post-operative discomfort and shorter period of analgesia intake, as well as the more quick recovery and shorter hospital stay that resulted from LC.
