[Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in uremic patients].


The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed in two uremic patients with gallstones. From January to July 2004, 15 patients with gallstones underwent to laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Two patients had chronic renal failure on haemodyalisis: a symptomatic fourty-two old woman, which had primitive hyperparathyroidism and primitive hyperaldosteronism, and asymptomatic transplant candidate fifty-five old man. No minor and major complications occurred and both patients were discharged 4 days after LC. Even in uremic patients the L. C. must be the gold standard for the treatment of gallstones both symptomatic and asymptomatic.
