Summary

The persistence of BDI rates as the most serious complication of LC despite technological advances requires a concerted intervention to enhance the safety of this common operation. The evidence-based guideline recommendations from this consensus effort are an important step toward recognition of key strategies surgeons can employ going forward and have considerable potential to positively impact patient outcomes. The identification of future research studies should lead to the design of clinical and educational research initiatives that can drive further improvement in the quality of surgical care for patients undergoing cholecystectomy.
