Results of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy in the Elderly

Summary

The results of 277 patients aged 70 years and over are compared to 1522 operations performed on younger patients. Older patients had significantly more postoperative complications; the conversion rate was also higher than in the younger patient collective. Compared to open cholecystectomy, however, the results are in favor of laparoscopic cholecystectomy and also aged patients benefit from this approach.
