IntroductIon: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has become the procedure of choice for management of symptomatic gallstone disease for its minimal invasiveness associated with less pain and early recovery. At times LC becomes difficult and takes more time to complete surgery. There are no well known scoring system to predict difficult LC preoperatively so this scoring system aims to develop a reliable scoring method to predict difficult LC preoperatively. Methods: It is a prospective… Expand

Proposed Diagnostic Scoring System to Predict Difficult Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
TLDR
Dash, Bhondave&Gadekar scoring system is proposed which is easy and statistically reliable to predict difficult cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomy pre-operatively. Expand
PREOPERATIVE ASSESSMENT OF SCORING SYSTEM DESIGNED FOR PREDICTION OF DIFFICULT CHOLECYSTECTOMY IN PATIENTS WITH SYMPTOMATIC GALL STONES
TLDR
The scoring system proposed in the study incorporating all the known factors for difficult cholecystectomy does provide a definite, objective and reliable prediction of difficult case pre operatively. Expand
Predicting the difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy: development and validation of a pre-operative risk score using an objective operative difficulty grading system
TLDR
A pre-operative score to predict difficult cholecystectomy, as defined by a validated intra-operative difficulty grading scale, is developed and validated and should assist in patient selection for day case surgery, optimising pre-operation surgical planning and counselling patients during the consent process.

Preoperative prediction of difficult lap chole: a scoring method
TLDR
A scoring system to predict the degree of difficulty of LC preoperatively is developed with a sensitivity and specificity of 75.00% and 90.24%, respectively. Expand
Risk factors in elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy for conversion to open cholecystectomy.
TLDR
Risk factors for conversion may be predicted and awareness of these factors should help in the selection of the appropriate procedure for patients and in selection of cases for resident training. Expand

TLDR
Clinical and ultrasonograpic factors can help predict difficult LC and likelihood of conversion of LC to open surgery. Expand
Implementation of a Scoring System for Assessing Difficult Cholecystectomies in a Single Center
TLDR
RSCLO could be used to define the term “difficult LC” more accurately and assist in selecting the most appropriate operation. Expand
Technical Difficulties and Complications during Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: Predictive Use of Preoperative Ultrasonography
TLDR
It is suggested that preoperative US is a useful screening test for patients undergoing LC, and it can help predict technical difficulties, which are likely to be easy, difficult, and very difficult during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Expand
Prospective study of scoring system in selective intraoperative cholangiography during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
TLDR
The scoring system can predict choledocholithiasis and is helpful in selection patients for intraoperative cholangiography, and should be considered highly intraoperative bile duct diameter during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Expand
Factors affecting conversion of laparoscopic cholecystectomy to open surgery.
TLDR
Risk factors, including patient factors, presentation, preoperative ultrasonography, and surgical experience, all contributed to the possibility of conversion, and knowledge of these factors may help in arranging the operating schedule, psychological preparation for the procedure, and planning of the duration of convalescence. Expand
Predictive factors for conversion of laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
TLDR
Obese patients with acute cholecystitis undergoing laparoscopic choleCystectomy have an increased chance of conversion and patients with multiple comorbid diseases undergoing nonelective laparoscope chole Cystectomy are more likely to require conversion. Expand
An objective scoring system for laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
TLDR
The technical skills required to perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy can reliably be measured using this tool and can be used to track the learning curve of surgeons in training, evaluate the efficacy of alternative training tools, and provide a means of self-assessment for the trainee. Expand
A diagnostic score to predict the difficulty of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy from preoperative variables
TLDR
A modified logistic regression analysis of 24 variables in 300 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy found the following parameters independently predictive for a difficult operation: right upper quadrant pain, rigidity in right upper abdomen, and no filling of the gallbladder in preoperative intravenous cholangiography.
