Background: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is regarded as the gold standard therapy for the majority of gallbladder problems. There are several benefits, despite the fact that LC can occasionally be challenging. It is quite difficult to tell beforehand whether a surgery will be simple or complicated.
Methods: This is a prospective study conducted over a 12-month period on patients between the ages of 16 and 60 who presented with symptoms and signs of Cholelithiasis/Cholecystitis and were identified by USG examination. The purpose of the study was to evaluate several preoperative predictors (history/ clinical/ imaging) and establish a grading mechanism for challenging laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
