Title:
Does concentration of surgical expertise improve outcomes for laparoscopic cholecystectomy? 9 year audit cycle
Authors:
Andrews, Stuart
Abstract:
Evidence from surgery shows that high volume is often associated with better outcomes. The aim of this study was to investigate this principle related to elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy practice. A retrospective analysis of all conversions and complications for patients undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed. Data was collected and then repeated after restrictions were implemented to concentrate practice. Hospital databases and patient notes were used to collect data.
