With more than 350 elective laparoscopic cholecystectomies per year, our hospital can be considered a high-volume center concerning this procedure.
An audit of laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed at PNS Shifa.
in 2009 published the results of 1046 cholecystectomies without BDI using the CVS method.
Moreover, the risk of developing postoperative morbidity was also comparable for emergency laparoscopic cholecystectomies during nighttime and daytime (0R=1.08 [95%-CI 0.51-2.78]; p=0.85).
A false impression that laparoscopic cholecystectomy is associated with greater incidence of bile duct injuries is a common notion among these patients; subsequently, a number of open cholecystectomies are being performed at general surgical centers in the Indian subcontinent.

In a study based on 1,522 laparoscopic cholecystectomies in Thailand, the BDI was found to be only 0.59%.
According to a report, the rate of BDI in LC was 0.10–0.42%,[sup][3] and common BDI and common hepatic duct injury were the most common types, ranged from 61.0% to 77.5%.[sup][6],[7],[8] Before the adoption of this technique, 14,302 cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomies were performed in our institute by the conventional procedure and the occurrence rate of biliary injury was 0.37%[sup][9] which was significant higher than that reported in the current study ( P < 0.05, chi-square analysis), but we did not use this comparison to approve the advantage of the current procedure because of the potential impact of the learning curve.
Primary prevention would entail a reduction in the number of unnecessary cholecystectomies. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has doubled the number of cholecystectomies being performed in most countries where it is widely practised, [9] yet the benign natural history of asymptomatic gallstones is unchanged.
Kruskal-Wallis test followed by post-tests was used for the comparison of non-parametric data between three groups (early, delayed, and interval cholecystectomies).
