Laparoscopic cholecystectomy through the umbilicus--minimal access surgery gets more minimal



Laparoscopic cholecystectomy through the umbilicus--minimal access surgery gets more minimal



New Zealand Medical Journal 124(1341): 50-57



We present the first three reported cases of single incision (through the umbilicus) laparoscopic cholecystectomy in New Zealand. The mean operating time was 108 minutes and all patients were discharged 24 hours after the procedure; they were all satisfied with their procedure and were keen to recommend it. We also provide a review of the international literature on this relatively new technique in New Zealand.
