Abstract

ABSTRACT
Background: Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (LC), though less invasive, is still heralded by a variety of complications of
which gall bladder (GB) perforation with free leakage of bile and stones into the peritoneal cavity is becoming increasingly
common which occurs during grasping, dissection off the liver bed/during extraction. Elective LC has become the gold
standard for treatment of symptomatic gallstones. However, in the early days, acute cholecystitis was a contraindication
of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and patients with acute cholecystitis were managed conservatively and discharged
for re-admission in order to have elective surgery performed for the definitive treatment. With the increased experience
in laparoscopy, surgeons started to attempt early laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis9. However, early
LC is still performed by only a minority of surgeons
