    Background: Percutaneous cholecystostomy is reserved for very high-operative-risk patients suffering from severe acute cholecystitis, who do not respond to conservative treatment. It is associated with high conversion rate to open surgery, when cholecystectomy is held later on. Our...

    The article presents a debate on the benefits and disadvantages of surgical drainage. Lawson Tait, a cholecystostomist, advises the application of surgical drainage. This suggestion prompted surgeons to use drainage after simple cholecystectomy in 1950s and 1960s. However, one study surfaced...

    According to the literature, the conversion rate for laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) after endoscopic sphincterotomy (ES) for cholecystodocholithiasis reaches 20%, at least when LC is performed 6 to 8 weeks afterward. It is hypothesized that early planned LC after ES prevents recurrent biliary...

    The diagnosis of acute cholecystitis in critically ill patients carries a high mortality rate. Although decompression and drainage of the gallbladder through a cholecystostomy tube may be used as a temporary treatment of acute cholecystitis in this population, there is still some debate about...
