METHODS Ultrasonographic data for 300 consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy were analyzed. Patients were divided into a group in which multiple small (< or = 5 mm) or multiple variably sized (both < or = 5 and > 5 mm) gallbladder stones were present ("positive" stones… CONTINUE READING
