PMID:  6774645     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A personal series of 600 consecutive operations on the gallbladder and bile ducts is reported, along with the clinical and radiographic findings, complications, and mortality. It can be concluded that surgical treatment of gallstone disease can be carried out with a high degree of preoperative accuracy in the diagnosis and with relative safety. Death can occur in longstanding, neglected, or complex disease in the elderly or diabetic patient.
