Number of bile duct injuries is rising with the spreading of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Authors analyse the complications in the last 8 years, especially the bile duct injuries. During this period 1657 laparoscopic cholecystectomies were performed. Complication occurred in 28 cases during the intra- and postoperative period (1.68%).
