Abstract:
Aim and Objective: One common gastrointestinal ailment that surgeons see on a daily basis in practice is cholelithiasis. To investigate upper GI tract endoscopy prior to cholecystectomy surgery. Upper GI endoscopy should be performed on individuals undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. To use the VAS score to evaluate patients' preoperative and postoperative discomfort. To compare the aforementioned results with the VAS score used to measure preoperative pain.
Method: A prospective study designed used with 66 patients, the study includes the Patients with cholelithiasis admitted for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy in wards of Department of General Surgery, Sambhram Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Bangalore, Karnataka, India, during the October 2016 to September 2017.
Results: Patients with typical biliary colic also had a reduced percentage of positive UGIE findings, suggesting that upper GI disorders should be cleared out before surgery because cholelithiasis is typically an unintentional finding.
Conclusion: The clinical manifestations of cholelithiasis and other upper gastrointestinal disorders are comparable. Many cholelithiasis patients still experience upper gastrointestinal symptoms even after surgery, which may call for additional investigation. Although UGIE is not recommended for every cholelithiasis patient, it can help prevent atypical post-operative symptoms in some cholelithiasis patients who present atypically.
