Cholecystectomy for symptomatic gallstones is mainly performed as soon as an acute cholecystitis episode settles. The main reason is the fear of higher morbidity and conversion from laparoscopic cholecystectomy to open cholecystectomy during acute cholecystitis. Acute cholecystitis is generally caused by gallstones. Gallstones affect about 10% of the population in the Western world but over 80% of people with gallstones are asymptomatic. Acute cholecystitis develops in 1 to 3% of patients with symptomatic gallstones. Cholecystectomy can be performed by laparotomy or by laparoscopy, either at the time of the initial attack (early treatment) or 2 to 3 months after the initial attack has subsided (delayed treatment). A factor complicating the assessment of outcomes of early treatment is that “early” has been variably defined as anywhere from 24 hours to 5 days after either the onset of symptoms or the time of diagnosis. If a delayed or conservative treatment is selected, patients are treated during the acute phase with antibiotics, very occasionally patients undergo percutaneous cholecystostomy (placement of a tube in the gallbladder). Fifteen to 20% of patients who underwent delayed procedures had persistent or recurrent symptoms requiring intervention before the planned operation. Today early laparoscopic cholecystectomy is considered to be the treatment of choice for most patients.
