Our first laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed in 1990 ;at that time the mean period of hospital stay was about of 4 days .In Genuary 2006 , we performed the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy in one-day surgery after a long period of experience. Rigorous pre and postoperative criteria are necessary to select patients underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy in one-day surgery ;surgical indications and operative technique are not modified .We think that laparoscopic cholecystectomy in one -day surgery is a safe, feasible and cost-effectiveness procedure when patients are carefully selected .
