Abstract

Abstract A report of thirty-eight aged patients who had undergone cholecystostomy for acute cholecystitis is presented; their clinical course and management are analyzed in detail. Particular emphasis is placed on the question of advising a subsequent cholecystectomy to such patients. Subsequent interval cholecystectomy is not recommended in aged patients considered poor surgical risks if they remain asymptomatic following cholecystostomy.
