Gallstones affect about 10% of people in the West- ern World, more than 80% of these people are asymptomatic.2,3 Cholecystectomy is one of the most common operations carried out in general surgery.4 Traditional open cholecystectomy was performed for the first time in 1882 by Carl August Langerbach.4,5 Open cholecystectomy has been accepted as gold standard treatment of gall- stones.6 The change came after 100 years, when in 1987 Professor Mouret from France started with a new operative method of laparoscopic chole- cystectomy.4,7 Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has revolutionized the treatment of gallstone disease and has almost replaced open cholecystectomy.8
