Abstract

Aims and objective

To assess the feasibility of singleincision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) with conventional laparoscopic instruments and to compare it with four-port conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) regarding various intraoperative and postoperative factors.

Materials and methods

This is a prospective randomized controlled study carried out at Santosh Medical College and Hospitals, Ghaziabad from March 2014 to September 2015. This study included 60 patients with cholelithiasis who were divided into two groups of 30 patients each. Group I was offered four-port conventional LC and group II underwent SILC.

Results and observations

Cholelithiasis was commonly seen in young females. Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy took more operating time than conventional LC due to more operative difficulty. Outcome of SILC was 79.6% (23 of 30). However, postoperative complications and pain (measured by visual analog scale scoring system) were almost the same in both groups. Cosmetic outcome was better in SILC group.

Conclusion

Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy has no added advantage over conventional LC, but it can be performed in selected patients for better cosmetic results.
