#1
S Aroori, C Mangan, L Reza, N Gafoor
BACKGROUND: Acute cholecystitis has the potential to cause sepsis and death, particularly in patients with poor physiological reserve. The gold standard treatment of acute cholecystitis (cholecystectomy) is often not safe in high-risk patients and recourse is made to percutaneous cholecystostomy as either definite treatment or temporizing measure. The aim of this study is to evaluate early and late outcomes following percutaneous cholecystostomy in patients with acute cholecystitis treated at our institution...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Over the past decades, laparoscopic colorectal surgery has become widely used for various indications. Large multicenter studies have demonstrated that laparoscopy has clear advantages over open surgery. Compared to open procedures, laparoscopy decreases perioperative blood loss, post-operative pain, and hospitalization time, but provides equivalent long-term oncological and surgical results. Most studies have been conducted in high-volume institutions with selected patients, which may have influenced the reported outcome of laparoscopy...
