Case description

Gallbladder disease is among the leading causes for hospital admission for acute abdomen among adults and the most common indication for abdominal surgery in the elderly. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the standard treatment for acute cholecystitis. LC has been linked to a lower complication rate and shorter postoperative hospital stay compared with open cholecystectomy (OC).
