  Purpose

The aim of this study is to assess possible differences between the LESS approach and the standard laparoscopic approach to cholecystectomy. In particular, the Postoperative Quality of Life (QoL) will be investigated by analyzing the followings: length of hospital stay (LoS), postoperative pain, cosmetics and the results of SF 36 questionnaire. Furthermore, operative time, conversion to standard LC rate, difficulty of exposure, difficulty of dissection, and complication rate will be compared.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Postoperative Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: one month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postoperative Quality of Life (QoL) will be the primary endpoint: QoL will be assessed analysing the followings: length of hospital stay (LoS), postoperative pain, cosmetics and the results of SF 36 questionnaire.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • operative time [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    operative time is expressed in minutes from the first skin incision on the patient's abdomen to the closure of the last laparoscopic incision

  • conversion rate to standard LC [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Conversion rate is intended:

    for the two single access laparoscopic cholecystectomy arms as the number and percentage of procedures during which one or more laparoscopic cannulas are introduced to accomplish surgery or a laparotomy is required.

    for the standard laparoscopic cholecystectomy arm as the number and percentage of procedure during which a laparotomy is required to accomplish surgery.


  • surgeon perception of difficulty of exposure measured with a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) with 0 to the least difficult and 5 to the most difficult [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • surgeon perception of difficulty of dissection measured with a Visual Analog Scale (VAS) with 0 to the least difficult and 5 to the most difficult [ Time Frame: day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • complication rate [ Time Frame: one month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    complications are divided into intraoperative and postoperative complications. Intraoperative complications rate is the rate of the following complications that may occur intraoperatively in all 3 study groups: bleeding, bile duct injuries, visceral injuries, gallbladder rupture.

    Postoperative complications rate is the rate of the following complications that may occur within 1 month in all 3 study groups: bleeding, intra-abdominal fluid collection, pancreatitis, bile duct injury, pain caused by missed CBD stones, infection of the skin incision/s, incisional hernia.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: LESS cholecystectomy
Laparo-endoscopic single site cholecystectomy, the entire surface of the patient's abdomen is covered by plaster at the end of the operation. Patient does not know which kind of procedure he underwent before discharge.
Procedure: Cholecystectomy

Standard laparoscopic cholecystectomy The first cannula is inserted with an "open laparoscopy" technique. LCs are performed with either HF or US energized dissection, standard or fundus-first gallbladder dissection, closure of the artery by ligature/clip or US, closure of cystic duct by ligature/clip.

Laparo-endoscopic single site cholecystectomy

The TriPort device is inserted at the navel site through a 15 to 25 mm incision with an "open laparoscopy" technique. Two working instruments are inserted (one grasper and one energised device) through the TriPort. A further 1.8 or 3 mm instrument inserted through the larger gel valve, parallel to a 5 mm dissecting instrument, is used in some cases to enhance exposure. Gallbladder dissection is accomplished either after preparation of the cystic duct and artery or with a fundus-first technique, by means of HF electrosurgery or US shears.The cystic artery is divided between clips or by US scissors. The duct is divided between clips.
