Laparoendoscopic single-site cholecystectomy versus conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials
ANZ Journal of Surgery, 04/19/2012
Wang D et al. – Laparoendoscopic single–site cholecystectomy (LESSC) can be safely performed with better cosmetic results; however, it carries a higher conversion rate and a longer operative time, and offers no benefit in terms of post–operative abdominal pain and post–operative stay. Further RCTs, according to the CONSORT statement, are advocated to validate its objective benefits.
