Acute cholecystitis requires a prompt diagnosis and early surgical treatment, either open or laparoscopic surgery.

At the beginning this treatment was only used in connection with intracerebral bleedings and biopsies. In a considerable short time the indication could be extended to the subdural hematoma, tumor cyst, obstructive hydrocephalus as well as to the abscess and the subdural epyema...
