Gallstones are a very common disease, present in at least
10% of the adult population. In the 70% of the cases gallstones
remain silent and in these patients any therapeutical
option should be undertaken, nor a periodic biological
surveillance. In the remaining cases the insurgence of biliary
pain is the typical symptom: pain is usually epigastric, or
diffuse to the right upper quadrant or to the back.
Indication for therapy should be placed only for symptomatic
patients. Nowadays laparoscopic cholecystectomy must
be considered as the golden standard for symptomatic
patients carrying non complicated gallstones.
