With the introduction of Laproscopic cholecystectomy and its attended benefits and problems, we undertook to study and review literature on minicholecystectomy, whether mini cholecystectomy confer the advantage of reduce morbidity and shorter hospital stay and at the same time avoid the problems associated with laparscopic cholecystectomy. 130 consective patients with symptomatic gall stones under went cholecystectomy through a 5cm subcostal incision. patients with clincial or radiological evidence of CBD stone were not inlcuded in the study. Cholecystectomy was possible in 117 patients (90%) through smaller incision while in 13 patients (10%) incision had to be extended to deal with difficult problems. With minichilecystectomy it is possible to carry out the procedure safely with reduced morbidity and a shorter hospital stay.
