Comparison of three port laparoscopic cholecystectomy with four port laparoscopic cholecystectomy
Keywords:cholelithiasis; three-port cholecystectomy; four-port cholecystectomy
Objective: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, gold standard treatment for cholelithiasis, has traditionally been done using 4 ports. We compared four port procedure with newer 3-port cholecystectomy.
Methods: Sixty patients were operated by equally dividing them into two groups and using two procedures mentioned in the objective.
Results and Discussion: Assessment was carried out using parameters like operative time, cosmetic appearance and complications. Results were similar except operative time which was much less with 4-port procedure.
Conclusion: It will require lot of training before three port laparoscopic cholecystectomy can become popular and beneficial compared to four-port procedure.
