Recommendation drug treatment during the inflammation of the gallbladder is circumstances when it is impossible to carry out surgical treatment.

 The main reason to draw attention to the gallstone disease, formation of stones in the gallbladder, is that it is a common disease in the developed countries and surgical treatment is advised to the vast majority of these patients and laparoscopic cholecystectomy is considered to be the operation of the gold standard.

In the USA, 20 million Americans have gallbladder disease and surgeons in this country perform 500,000 laparoscopic cholecystectomies each year. 

By inflating the abdominal cavity with carbon dioxide at a flow rate of 3.5 liters per minute a working space is created, essentially laparoscope (camera) from the navel ring is injected and then other 2 tools are included in the abdominal cavity from the holes in the size of 5 mm. Under the control of the image send by the camera to monitor, the cystic duct and the cystic artery clipped with tiny titanium clips and gallbladder is removed from the abdominal cavity.
