The purpose of this study was to quantify the risk of thromboembolic complications after laparoscopic cholecystectomy by a survey of the literature. We reviewed 60 laparoscopic cholecystectomy series consisting of 153,832 patients. The average mortality was 0.08%. The average rate of fatal pulmonary embolism was 0.02% and total pulmonary embolism 0.06%. The average rate of reported deep vein thrombosis was 0.03%.
