BACKGROUND: Many surgeons perform subtotal cholecystectomy (SC) to avoid serious biliovascular injury, when total laparoscopic cholecystectomy is unfeasible due to technical difficulty such as distorted anatomy at the Calot's triangle resulting from severe fibrosis. However, SC may bring its own risks besides its benefits. We reviewed our postoperative outcomes of SC in order to evaluate the advantages and complications of this procedure, and discussed in the light of relevant literature.
