Quand faut-il réaliser une cholécystectomie ? Une décision pas toujours simple

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2006, vol. 2, no. 70, p. 1586-92
Abstract Gallstone disease is a frequent medical problem. Cholelithiasis affects 10% of the population and 30% of patients with gallstones will undergo surgery. The treatment of choice for symptomatic gallstones remains cholecystectomy. A prophylactic cholecystectomy is indicated for asymptomatic patients in the presence of polyps, porcelain gallbladder or during bariatric surgery. The management of the complications of gallstone disease is discussed. At present, common bile duct stones, even if discovered preoperatively, should be managed by a multidisciplinary team including surgeons trained in laparoscopic techniques and gastroenterologists. This review is complemented by the information from a prospective database generated by a program called "DODIG" on 1099 cholecystectomies performed in our institution.
