Brief Summary:
The aim of this work is to evaluate which of the two types of operation (traditional/open and laparoscopic) has more impact on patients who were operated electively due to their chronic calculous cholecystitis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Calculous Cholecystitis Procedure: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy Procedure: Open Surgery Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The prospective, single center, randomized study includes 120 patients who are operated electively - 60 patients operated laparoscopically and 60 patients operated traditionally. Biohumoral and endocrine parameters of response to trauma are determined from 24 hour urine and blood: adrenalin, noradrenalin, metabolites of corticosteroid hormone - 17- hydroxyl and 17- keto steroid (HPLC method), C reactive protein and albumin, glycemia, creatine phosphokinase, lactate dehydrogenase, sedimentation of erythrocytes and serum concentration of potassium.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 120 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Extent of Surgical Trauma in Open and Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Study Start Date : June 2003
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2004

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine biohumoral and endocrine parameters of response to trauma [ Time Frame: first 24h after the surgical intervention ]
    Urine and blood biochemical analyses: adrenalin, noradrenalin, metabolites of corticosteroid hormone - 17- hydroxyl and 17- keto steroid (HPLC method), C reactive protein and albumin, glycemia, creatine phosphokinase, lactate dehydrogenase, sedimentation of erythrocytes and serum concentration of potassium
