Two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been reported to be safe and feasible. At laparoscopy hospital New Delhi we have performed 200 cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomy within 5 years. During five year time we compared the clinical outcomes of two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy versus conventional four-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy resulted in less port-site pain and similar clinical outcomes as four port cholecystectomy.
We report a prospective randomized controlled trial that compared the clinical outcomes of two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy versus conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In many previous study of the world Laparoctor were used perform two port cholecysctectomy and retraction of gallbladder was done by the long grasping forceps through the operating telescope, whereas dissection was accomplished through the 5-mm subxyphoid port. Additional 5-mm sub costal ports was used when it was found necessary.
To conclude, we demonstrated in this study that two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy is safe and has similar clinical outcomes compared to the conventional four-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy in selective cases. Since two-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy has less surgical scars, it can be recommended as a routine technique.
