Conclusions

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the treatment of choice for symptomatic cholelithiasis. This approach should be the same for patients with situs inversus totalis. LESS is a safe method that offers at least an aesthetic advantage over the traditional laparoscopy. Additional studies are needed to confirm other advantages such as less pain and less metabolic response.
