- Recommendation ID
- What is the long-term effect of laparoscopic cholecystectomy on outcomes that are important to patients?
- Any explanatory notes
- There is a lack of information on the long-term impact of cholecystectomy on patient outcomes. Many patients report a continuation of symptoms or the onset of new symptoms after laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and these affect quality of life. Research is needed to establish the long-term patient benefits and harms, so that appropriate information can be provided to patients to aid decision-making and long-term management of their condition.
