Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is the preferred method of treatment for patients with gallbladder disease in the elective setting. Despite being technically more difficult, LC performed during the early course of acute cholecystitis can be safe and cost-effective. The current review discusses the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies that may help promote the safe and successful laparoscopic treatment of patients with acute cholecystitis.
