Differences in primary outcomes like mortality and complication proportions (particularly bile duct injuries) are important reasons to choose one of the two operative techniques open or laproscopic Cholecystectomy. The study consists of 100 patients with a diagnosis of calculus cholecystitis that underwent Cholecystectomy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a considerable advancement in the treatment of gall bladder disease .technically the dissection of the cystic artery and cystic duct is very precise and bleeding is easily controlled with less per operative blood loss.LC is associated with less chances of wound infection and there is no risk of wound dehiscence. The only disadvantage of the laparoscopic Cholecystectomy over the open procedure is the duration of operating time which is significantly longer. In cardiac patient or in those patient where general anesthesia’s contra indicated, open Cholecystectomy can be carried out in regional anesthesia and in such patient when duet o co2 inflation cardiac arrhythmia can be provoked open Cholecystectomy is better option.
