Intraoperative cholangiography during laparoscopic cholecystectomy is contr
oversial. Thirty six patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy at
our institute over a 13 months period were examined in order to investigat
e the importance of intraoperative cholangiography. There were no bile duct
injuries and there was one common bile duct stone (3%) and one aberrant bi
le duct (3%)in this series. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in our institute c
ould be performed safely with the use of intraoperative cholangiography.
