Al-Jumhoori Teaching Hospital, Mosul, Nineveh\ Iraq
Cholecystectomy is the defacto standard operation for cholelithiasis and there are continuous attempts to do it through a less invasive incision known as mini laparoscopic cholecystectomy (MLC).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of MLC in our center.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:
This is a pilot study involving 6 selected patients for whom MLC was performed at Al-Jamhory teaching hospital after acquiring the ethical committee permission and patients’ informed consent.
The study includes six patients, their average age is 27 years and their average BMI is 28kg\m2. The average operative time is 53 minutes without intra-operative complications. The post-operative pain is mild and the hospital stay is about 12 hours. All patients were satisfied with the cosmetic results.
This study shows that MLC a safe and feasible procedure; it takes more time than LC but has mild post-operative pain and excellent cosmetic results. It can also be done as a day case surgery.
