Objective To investigate the feasibility and effect of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) in hepatic sclerosis patients with gallbladder benign disease. Methods The clinical data of 32 cases laparoscopic cholecystectomy in hepatic sclerosis patients with gallbladder benign disease were retrospectively analyzed. Results LC was successfully performed in 30 patients. 2 cases were converted to open cholecystectomy (OC) because of bleeding. The postoperative complications including 3 cases of ascites, 1 case leakage of gall. There were no severe complications in these patients, such as infection of abdominal cavity and failure of liver function. Conclusions LC is feasible in hepatic sclerosis patients of Child A and B with gallbladder benign disease. It is successful key to pay attention to the perioperative management.
