Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Jamaica: The initial experience

, : Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Jamaica: The initial experience. West Indian Medical Journal 45(3): 85-88

This review of all laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed between 1993 and 1995 in Jamaica records the experience of local surgeons following an accelerated training programme. Special attention was paid to operating time, conversions, complications, analgesic requirements, time to discharge and cost. Comparisons were made of the local experience with the international experience. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been found to be a safe and viable option for Jamaican patients with gall bladder disease.
