Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, Duration of hospital stay, Outcomes, Gall stones, operational findings


To find out the laproscopic cholecystectomy outcomes association with duration of hospital stay in rural area of district Sanghar, Sindh, Pakistan. Methods: This longitudinal and interventional study was conducted in a private hospital of Tando Adam District Sanghar the rural area of Sindh, Pakistan from March 2013 to October 2019. Patients above 15 years of age from both genders were taken by using convenient sampling technique, having symptomatic gallstones, favorable or unfavorable anatomical conditions, acute and chronic cholecystitis. Patients with dilated common bile duct (>8 mm in diameter), jaundice, mass at porta hepatis and uncorrectable coagulopathy were excluded. SPSS-22 was used for the statistical analysis. Results: This study included 28(13.9%) males and 173(86.1%) females. Mostly participants fall between the age of 30 to 39 years 65(32.3%). 146(72.6%) participants stayed in the hospital for up to 24 hours.  Non-significant association (p-value> 0.05) was found between the duration of the hospital stay and outcome of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Conclusion:  Non-significant association was observed between duration of the hospital stay and outcome of laparoscopic cholecystectomy
